5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful - Buy it!, 26 Sep 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Spawn The Album (Audio CD)
I haven't seen the film yet, so I have no idea what that is like, but the soundtrack totally rules. The best track is easily 'Long Hard Road Out Of Hell' by Marilyn Manson & the Sneaker Pimps, but there are so many excellent dance/metal crossovers on this album that you can't help listening to all of it. 'Can't you(Trip Like I do)' is awesome, Kirk Hammett doing 'Satan' with Orbital is suitably evil and whilst more of the original should have been kept in the remake, the added guitar parts make for an exciting update to an already great song. The Mansun and 808 State song is surprisingly good, there's a scary remix of Metallica's 'For Whom The Bell Tolls', a Wink remix of 'Torn Apart' by Stabbing Westward that's possibly even better than the original, Goldie & Henry Rollins doing heavy(!) drum & bass, Prodigy & Tom Morello doing an amazing 'One Man Army' and loads more... If you're interested in the more Industrial/Techno side of metal, this is well worth buying. A very good soundtrack - even the remixes are good. I suppose I'll have to watch the film at some point.

5.0 out of 5 stars A decade on, fresh as ever..., 24 Mar 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spawn The Album (Audio CD)
Thanks to the pioneering work done Rick Rubin et al. back in the day, the very idea of mixing dance and hard-rock has become the norm these days. Ten years back, however, it was not as widely accepted nor as likely to be a commercial success, thus the decision to produce an album of some of the hardest rockers and phatest beat-meisters was a risky one. Couple that with the usual unpredictable nature of soundtrack sales and you could have been looking at both an artistic and commercial white-elephant. Is that the case, here? Definitely not so! What we have here is perhaps the best ever example of dance-rock fusion. An outstandingly original selection of both tunes and pairings; fourteen solid tracks all uniquely original yet which all somehow see, to come together under a common theme, a common sense. Brilliant. What continues to amaze me is that nearly a decade after its release I still enjoy listening to this CD as though I just bought it yesterday, it is timeless excellence and a record that should be in the collection of anyone who appreciates great music, music without boundaries. All in all I cannot convey the staggering excellence of this varied offering, take a listen for yourself, if you like progressive music or dance-based rhythms, I am certain you won't be disappointed.
N.B. Incidentally if you are looking for a CD to run to or cycle to, then this is the CD for you. Go out for a ride with this plugged in your ears and you'll cycle twice as fast! Guaranteed!

Personal favourites:
Track #6. For Whom The Bell Tolls (The Irony Of All) - Metallica & DJ Spooky
Track #13. No Remorse (I Wanna Die) - Slayer & Atari Teenage Riot

5.0 out of 5 stars Metal rock, remixed and better!, 21 Oct 2009

This review is from: Spawn The Album (Audio CD)
As a high school goer, i bought this album in a audio cassette way back in 1997, not knowing what it would be all about. And since then, this album is a personal favorite and if some one asks me to live without it, I am gonna complain all the way. This is a huge addiction and greatly produced. Brilliant guitar work and synthesizers are at best use. Highly recommended for any music lover.

After reading reviews on this Cd I purchased it.
Sounds excellent, a mixture of electronic and heavy rock. Only one weak track would certainly recommend A++++
