I got this the other day, and I've listened to it so many times. I normally don't buy soundytrack's before I see the film, but htis time I had to.
I was disappointed to find that the music from both of the trailers was not preent on the soundtrack, but this is a great selection of music.
The first time I listened to it, I didn't like it so much. But I've gradually gotten used to it. The music is a combination of melancholy, bitter-sweet and angry, rock style. I think that it perfectly sums up a vampire/wereworlf's persona (although that could be just me!!).
One of my favourite tracks is Bring Me the Disco King. It's the first song I've actually liked by David Bowie and v. cool. The actual score (there are occasional pieces. The music by renholder are pieces of score) is quite strange, and mostly the same each time and kinda boring, but they add to the feel.
Over all I think that this is a good and cool soundtrack. I can't wait to the see the film, and I'ms ure it's gonna be as cool as the soundtrack!!

Well, what can I say, I've never listened to such an excellent soundtrack in my life. There songs on there for everyone to enjoy, from the haunting track by Milla, to Skinny Puppy,Wes Borland and a wonderful collaboration of David Bowie, John Frusciante and Maynard James Keenan. Bought the CD when it first came out and I have not stopped listning to it. The artwork on the inside of the cover was painted by Wes Borland (ex-Limp Bizkit guitarist, his depiction of Kate Beckinsdale is really good.
It mixes light with dark, which I guess reflects the film perfectly.
It has also left me wanting here more of the same.

Having watched frontman Trent Reznor, Nine Inch Nails' Danny Lohner now get the chance to produce his own film soundtrack. The film is the forthcoming Underworld, a dark gothic action movie about a centuries-long war between vampires and werewolves. The soundtrack follows in an appriate vein, mixing some angry heavy rock with more melancholy softer tracks. The problem with focusing on modern rock is that the compilation is dated very definitely, but as much of the music is written, produced or features Lohner, it holds together cohesively unlike other recent similar soundtracks. Much of this was recorded in secret at his home studio, as usually collaborations of this magnitude would make waves in the press. This has led to a great deal of hype around its release, largely justified it appears...
The album opens with two impressive collaborations. The first, The Damning Well, feaures former Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland, Filter's vocalist Richard Patrick, The Vandals and A Perfect Circle drummer Josh Freese, and Danny Lohner. All are impressive musicians and offer great performances in the heavy brooding opener "Awakening", especially Patrick's vocals. The supergroup recorded four tracks, including two with Evanescence singer Amy Lee, but they may never see daylight due to contractual issues. The fourth song may well appear on a future soundtrack.
The second collaboration, Puscifer, features Maynard James Keenan of Tool and A Perfect Circle, who provides his special brand of smooth and distinctive vocals, and again Danny Lohner. It is an emotional song with excellent use of dynamics in a similar, but slightly more accessible, style to the recent A Perfect Circle Thirteenth Step album.

Most film soundtracks are just essentially glorified compilation albums of music "inspired" by the film, rather than the music of the film (Freddy Vs Jason and Resident Evil I'm looking in your direction) and whilst this isn't necessarily a bad thing, in fact some of the best compilations come of the back of films, it's usually nothing more than a means of further marketing both parties. The Underworld soundtrack however is a different kettle of herring altogether, equal parts rock and classical with some of the films score thrown in for good measure the soundtrack is more the embodiment of the film than a part of its franchise. It also features a bundle of interesting collaborations and remixes. The whole album is produced by Nine Inch Nails' Danny Lohner who is also responsible for many of the remixes and collaborations on many of the tracks and who also made the film score, under the name "Renholder".
First track in, "Awakening" features a collaboration between Ex-Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland and Filter Frontman Richard Patrick, among others, under the name of The Damning Well. Unsurprisingly this track sounds like an exact cross of Limp Bizkit and Filter; fortunately the better aspects of each band (no Richard Patrick rapping to be found here). Whilst this track isn't great it does show that there is life after Bizkit for Wes Borland.

I havn't even seen Underworld yet, but I own the soundtrack anyway, thats how good it is.
I'd be hard pressed to pick a favourite track, but at a push I'd say Dillinger Escape Plan.
Buy this album now, even if you havn't seen the film. Go do it. NOW!

Great music, great variety. The tracks by the "supergroups" in particular are spectacular.
Buy this if you like good, occasionally dark hard rock.
Excellent.
