This review is from: The Rock Matrix (Audio CD)
Okay, it's a cash in, that much is true, but I can't help but love this compilation. Quite often I find, you buy a soundtrack to a movie and perhaps half of it don't seem to fit the movie or there are just some tracks you don't like. But The Rock Matrix to me is different.
As the inlay says, the music on the cd's are inspired by The Matrix series, rather than feature on the films. Think of it if you will of being a soundtrack to the films that YOU would compile and you might get the picture. For some reason, ALL the tracks featured seem to fit the movies, even more so than the official soundtracks themselves.
You've got rock from Ill Nino and Stone Sour; remixes of tracks by Fear Factory, Prodigy and The Charlatans and some great industrial/ebm from Pig, Cubanate, Front Line Assembly and Juno Reactor. Even the Marilyn Manson track is good if a little repetitive (and I hate M. Manson).
So, despite being a cash-in I can't say anything bad about this cd. It's probably THE best unofficial soundtrack to any movie ever.
