This review is from: Repo Men (Audio CD)
Repo Men - The Soundtrack really is a mixed bag. As stand-alone tracks, nearly every number holds it's weight and is instantly recognisable as a classic, but thrown in together like it is here just means you jump from one genre to another at random. I know this is the inherent problem with OST's as the range of scenes in cinema will require a variety of music but this album DOES have a central core of soul & swing and instead of blending the tracks together, they are strewn randomly amongst electro, indie & hip-hop.

Rosie Clooney's 1960 rendition of Sway isn't the best version out there; but a great song nonetheless, jarringly followed by the Prodigy's take on Method Man's Release Yo 'Delf is an head-nodding electrified hip-hop tune which drops you neatly back into the 1960's with the reggae slipstream of Toots & The Maytals - 54-46 was my number, a hit you are sure to recognise reggae-fan or not. The absolute pinnacle of the soul collection on this album has to be the hauntingly-brilliant 1967 tune by William Bell - Everyday will be just like a Holiday; a song featured prominently in the film as RZA's character remixes it just before his repo. The remix is featured on this soundtrack but it doesn't hold a candle to the original.

There are a few surprises here; the near-acapella version of Moloko's 'Sing it Back' is a stirring & rousing change of pace to the otherwise vibrant album. Beck's - Nausea is well out of place here, feeling lost amongst the soul. Nina Simone's Feelin' Good is sure to make any album it graces with it's presence. The Mamas and the Papas round things off nicely with 'Dream a little Dream of me' before slipping into the largely-faceless credit music.

All things considered, this has some great tracks on it but they struggle to sit together coherently in this format and trying to listen to the soundtrack through is like someone has hit 'shuffle all' on your ipod. If you need one reason to buy this, it has to be the high-quality version of Everyday will be like a Holiday which is sure to keep you coming back for more. Recommended!!
