5.0 out of 5 stars A wolf in sheeps clothing
This is a must buy CD for anyone who is a connaiseur of the film soundtrack and who appreciates truly great hip-hop. If you were expecting to find Cut Killer's awesome 2 minute scratch fest (the one over a square from his flat window)you might be disappointed. This is not the soundtrack to the film (as often advertised), but as clearly outlined on the CD cover - and you...

5.0 out of 5 stars A wolf in sheeps clothing, 12 Feb. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: La Haine - Music Inspired By The Film (Audio CD)
This is a must buy CD for anyone who is a connaiseur of the film soundtrack and who appreciates truly great hip-hop. If you were expecting to find Cut Killer's awesome 2 minute scratch fest (the one over a square from his flat window)you might be disappointed. This is not the soundtrack to the film (as often advertised), but as clearly outlined on the CD cover - and you don't need to have much of a grasp of French to work this out - 'Musiques Inspirees du Film'. Don't fret, this CD is arguably much, much better. It offers the best collective of eclectic French hip-hop funk talent of that time (forgoing those in the original motion picture soundtrack). If the music from the film inspired you to look out for the CD, get the soundtrack (you will remember the sparse but effective use of music in the film). Essentially this CD has all the best components of the film soundtrack and more. So why just dip your feet in the water when you can really take the plunge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why French Hip Hip is to be taken serious, 19 Sept. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: La Haine - Music Inspired By The Film (Audio CD)
The soundtrack of the film La Haine is a document on where French Hip Hop is today. The film is on the tension in the concrete jungle in Paris. The tension being mostly between the Police and the people living in the Suburbs. The film won the Palme d'Or at Cannes (the police in the cinema refused to watch and were standing with their backs turned to the screen). The CD really supplements the movie. MC Solaar, I AM and others indicate that French hiphop is a serious force It is a way in which rappers from the many cultures that make up the population in cities such as Paris and Marseille found a way to express themselves. It is of a much higher quality than L.A. style gangsta rap. The soundtrack is an excellent introduction in to this.
The only downside is that the CD does not contain the Burning and Lootin' that blasted from the cinema speakers at the start of the movie.
