5.0 out of 5 stars More than just a soundtrack, 1 Oct. 2002
This review is from: Natural Born Killers (Audio CD)
More often than not 'Soundtrack' means simply all the songs in the movie. More recently it has meant 10 odd tracks by the latest 'hot' artists shoehorned into a movie to make a bit of extra cash (Blade II, Swordfish the list goes on). This, however, bucks the trend so emphatically it seems churlish to put it into the 'Soundtrack' category.
Trent Reznor has crafted a soundscape of par excellence, covering the emotional highs and lows seen in the film. In some respects this is a greater creative work than the film itself as it fuses so many influences, tied in with some of the finer pieces of dialogue from the movie. From the chanting Indian to 'S**t list', this album takes you through a journey. A journey through the minds of Mickey and Mallory. Funnily enough, I don't like all the bands on here. I hate L7, I'm not a massive fan of Patti Smith or Leonard Cohen, but they all add to the rich tapestry on offer here and it is impossible to imagine the album without them.
I cant help feeling that if this had been released as a stand alone album, sold as a 'DJ' album or 'An evening with Trent', it would have sold a million and have been, quite rightly, hailed by all and sundry. As it stands, you will find this in the sound track section and I cant recommend it enough
