4.0 out of 5 stars The lighter shade of black? 1 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Being a big fan of AFI, The Cure and various electronic artists including Blaqk Audio, not to mention the films themselves, I knew I would enjoy this as soon as I saw it. There are actually only three original recordings on here, the rest have all been remixed and it makes for a wonderfully unique collection. Danny Lohner (ex-N.I.N) has remixed the majority of the songs (all the tracks labelled Renholder Remix) with a hand from his good friend Wes Borland (ex-Limpbizkit) on a couple of tracks.
Here is my opinion on each track:
1. Lighten Up Francis (JLE Dub Mix) by Puscifer - Maynard James Keenan (of Tool) tried his hand at electronic music to great results! This remix is big loud and dirty! In the style of Downward Spiral-era NIN but with plenty of Maynard's personality shining through.
2. Underneath The Stars (Renholder Remix) by The Cure featuring Maynard James Keenan/Puscifer and Milla Jovovich - One of my favourites! I think I prefer this to the original! To be honest I can't really hear Maynard's voice anywhere, I would have preferred if the track was lengthened and he sang a verse, but its still great. Milla's voice really adds to the track and keeping the tempo slowed gives the song a darker and more epic feel than the original. Well recommended.
3. Nasty Little Perv (Renholder Remix) by Perry Farrell - Reminds me of the Filter & The Crystal Method song (Can't You) Trip Like I Do from the Spawn soundtrack, its all big crunching guitars with a energetic dance sound keeping the pace going. Perry's voice works great with this style and its a good song, although I found it a little out of place on this album, especially following a Cure song!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed it 21 Jan 2009
By C. Gill
Format:Audio CD
As I particularly like the other soundtracks I wasn't disappointed with this one. The music is much more for the guys who like atmophospheric music as well as industrial/ ebm and less for the metal heads ;p It has a darkness in it which fits perfectly with the film, less raaaah and more emotional and sexy. Some songs slink into your consciousness (Underneath the Stars [Renholdėr Remix] - Maynard James Keenan, , Puscifer) and others make you want to move, (Nasty Little Perv [Renholdėr Remix] - Perry Farrell) music just how I like it. As with all albums there are songs I like better than others but generally, its a good album.

2.0 out of 5 stars not great!! 16 Jan 2009
By nipps
Format:Audio CD
The underworld soundtracks have always been a bit of a mixed bag for me. The first two had just a handful of good tracks and this one is no different. "The Puscifer" remix is good as is the "deftones" remix of "hole in the earth" but neither is a patch on the original. The best song(and only reason to purchase this album in my opinion)is the awesome "I want you to" by Wes Borland's "Black light burns" and the rest of the album is either HORRIBLE or just so so. Most of the songs on here are remixes and barely ressemble actual songs with an actual song structure at all. There all pretty mellow or quite techno orientated. A special mention must be given to the absolute Murder of AFI's Song "Miss Murder", This remix has to be the worst thing I've heard since Kate Beckinsale was not going to be in "Underworld Rise of The Lycans", truly does SUCK big time!! Last thing I'll say is, if you liked the first two albums, especially Evolution, then you will no doubt like this one!! I however don't really rate any of them, bar a few songs as I mentioned before!! Punisher Warzone soundtrack is better!! ;-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly beautiful mixture of industrial and rock 4 Mar 2009
By Z. Freeman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
While all fans of the Underworld films have come to expect epic vampire- and werewolf-filled battle sequences, the more musical fans have also come to expect top-notch soundtracks filled with a high level of quality tracks, often almost doubling as something like a rock/industrial score. And the soundtrack to the third film in the series doesn't disappoint on the quality front, featuring impressive artists like AFI, Alkaline Trio, The Cure, and Puscifer (the alias of Tool and A Perfect Circle's Maynard James Keenan), all expertly remixed by Renholder (album producer Danny Lohner).

From the creepy, crawling rhythm of Genghis Tron's "Board Up the House" (with the throaty, oft-repeated command to "hide upstairs and wait" backed by a throbbing, occasionally screaming beat) to The Cure's sensually pulsating "Underneath the Stars" (featuring the always evocative Milla Jovavich providing backup vocals), the soundtrack for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans is no "one-track" pony repeating the same expected stylings over and over. As producer, Lohner makes sure to instill his tracks with a general sense of continuity, providing a theme that gives the entire album a definite dark feel that carries effortlessly between the heavier and quieter songs, keeping Blaqk Audio's "Stiff Kittens" from going overboard with heaviness and, similarly, keeping Thrice's "Broken" from becoming too soft.

Overall, this album is a surprisingly beautiful mixture of industrial and rock acts that deliver a steady stream of darkly melodic tunes mixed to near perfect, though at times it could be argued that Lohner perhaps overmixes a bit. Also, listen to King Black Acid's "Let's Burn" for an example of one of the three tracks on the album that have been placed here "untouched" - as pointed out by a fan in a comment below. Fans of the Underworld films are sure to find plenty to like here and even those who have never laid eyes on a single frame will be more than impressed with the mixture of tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost as strong as the first Underworld soundtrack! 18 May 2009
By MD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was a HUGE fan of the first Underworld soundtrack. It was raw, heavy and it featured some of my favorite artists. From the opening 'Awakening' track to the utterly mesmorizing 'All of This Past', the first Underworld soundtrack was close to perfection in my eyes.

The Rise of the Lycans soundtrack does not fall far behind. I have had the CD for about a week now and listened to it all the way through on repeat during a roadtrip this weekend. With every additional listen, I found myself loving it all the more. Granted, just like with the first Underworld soundtrack, there are a few bad apples (my opinion), but the Rise of the Lycans soundtrack succeeds overall in providing great driven, dark, and addicting beats.

Admittedly, music preferences are subjective but these are a few of the standout tracks from the album:

1. Lighten Up Francis (JLE Dub Mix) - Puscifer
2. Underneath The Stars (Renholder Remix) - The Cure (f/ Maynard James Keenan/Puscifer and Milla)
8. Board Up The House (Renholder Remix) - Genghis Tron
9. Stiff Kittens (Jnrsnchz Blaqkout Remix) - Blaqk Audio
16. Steal My Romance - Ghosts On The Radio (this is becoming my favorite track on the soundtrack!)

Songs that I found myself skipping everytime they started to play (again, just my opinion):

3. Nasty Little Perv (Renholder Remix) - Perry Farrell (irritating and subpar lyrics)
6. Over And Out (Renholder Remix) - Alkaline Trio
10. Broken Lungs (Legion Of Doom Remix) - Thrice (too slow and uninteresting)
12. I Want You To - Black Light Burns (simply not my cup of tea)

Overall, this is a great rock/industrial soundtrack with some outstanding remixes by danny lohner. I would highly suggest it to anyone who enjoyed the first Underworld soundtrack as they are both along the same lines in terms of the type of content. The Rise of the Lycans is a refreshing soundtrack that has managed to, yet again, introduce me to some outstanding artists and fresh material.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Original and Thoroughly Enjoyable Listening Experience 13 Mar 2009
By Phoenix Child - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Rise of the Lycans is the third installment in the Underworld saga, and its soundtrack had a lot to cover in regards to the fairly epic movie. "Rise of the Lycans," thankfully, regains nearly all of the originality and thoughtfulness of the first soundtrack that was utterly lost on the "Evolution" soundtrack, and fully satisfies both as a soundtrack to the film and as an awesome mix.

Virtually every song on this CD is remixed or reproduced for an original Underworld sound, and the new material will satisfy any fan. The emo stylings of the "Evolution" soundtrack are thankfully nearly completely excised, leaving "Rise of the Lycans" in a darker, more industrially-based rock scene. The masterful remixing by the ever-talented Danny Lohner (credited on the Underworld soundtracks as `Renholdėr') keeps the metal from being too harsh at the same time as keeping the softer tracks from being too lulling.

My personal favorite and the track featuring the most famous rockers is "Underneath the Stars [Renholdėr Remix]," contributed by The Cure. The vocals of the lead singer float smoothly over the track as the remix blends with the original rock, and the song is lent great power by the blend of featured artists, a combination of The Cure, Puscifer, Maynard James Keenan (of Tool fame), and the ever-beautiful vocal stylings of Milla Jovovich (credited in her singing capacity simply as Milla), who contributed the luscious "Rocket Collecting" to the original "Underworld" soundtrack.

"Underworld: Rise of the Lycans" opens with Puscifer, who again contributes a fine opening, followed up with lush new tracks from Deftones, AFI, Alkaline Trio, and William Control (featuring Matt Skiba). The swelling sounds of the opening slip into some generally good tracks that don't leave you wanting, leading up to Combichrist's masterful "Today We Are All Demons [Beneath the World Mix]."

"Rise of the Lycans" misses a beat after this with some fairly mediocre tracks - in particular the emo-styles of Drop Dead, Gorgeous as they contribute the generally whiny and annoying "Two Birds, One Stone." The album, however, jumps right back from this dangerous ledge that "Evolution" unfortunately fell from with King Black Acid, ending with the lovely "Steal My Romance" by Ghosts on the Radio.

In the end, Rise of the Lycans is a slightly darker, more industrial sound than the previous Underworld albums, but it is a 7-League-Boot stride greater than the "Evolution" soundtrack and more than lives up to the great example set by the original Underworld soundtrack album.

4.0 out of 5 stars A few songs that don't belong but overall great soundtrack 10 Jun 2012
By Shelley D. Bowen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this soundtrack used having enjoyed the first Underworld soundtrack and movie (also being satisfied with how well the soundtrack fit with the tone of the movie). It's a much different story with "Rise of the Lycans" but it's still a really good album all in all.

If you're a fan of industrial rock, electronica music, or experimental rock music then this is something you'll most likely enjoy. Certain bands on here I don't usually enjoy but the Renholder remixes of them (Charlie Clouser or Danny Lohner from Nine Inch Nails does the mixing) brings something to the bands that makes their original song 10 times better. There isn't as much straight up rock like the original soundtrack but having more electronic components incorporated wasn't a bad way to go because the songs sound amazing.

Only a few songs failed to impress me much: William Control w/Matt Skiba, Combichrist, Black Light Burns, Drop Dead Gorgeous, King Black Acid, and From First to Last.

I guess that's more like 6 songs but the other 10 are excellent and 10 out 16 is pretty good. That's why I give it 4 stars; I think it's worth owning but it has a little filler. Also, the Renholder mix is almost as good as the original version of "Hole In the Earth" by the Deftones which is very impressive.

I say buy.
