Disc one concentrates on rock and dance, with a lot of great songs by Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, Rob Dougan, Sleep people, Oakenfold, Fluke and Rage against the Machine (and others). Passportal and Dread Rock are my favourites - such intelligent music yet, also extremely exciting. Much like the films in fact.
CD two is amazing. The interwoven drum beats with the orchestra in Mona Lisa Overdrive is probably the best piece of new-Classical music I've heard. Juno Reactor comes up trumps with Teahouse as well. And Don Davis is simply a genius, quite how violins can be played like that, I don't know.
Overall a great album.
In my opinion the album is quite a well rounded package. You have tracks from Linkin Park, Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie to Oakenfold, Rage Against The Machine and P.O.D. I think the best tracks are the contributions from Rob Zombie and Oakenfold (I don't usually dig dance music, but there is something about this one I like).
It's a 2 CD set, CD 1 has the stuff I have already mentioned. CD 2 has 7 instrumental tracks (at this point I dunno if it is the entire score)
CD 2 also has some multimedia elements:
Final Flight of The Osiris Trailer
The Matrix Reloaded Trailer
Making of Enter The Matrix (the video game)
If you are a Matrix fan this will be another fine item to add to your collection. If you are into the whole alternative music scene, this might be worth a look. If you don't dig nu-metal then you should maybe look somewhere else.
