Shame you can't download individual tracks...,
This review is from: WWE The Music - A New Day, Volume 10 (Amazon MP3 Exclusive) (MP3 Download)
As I said in the title, in my opinion, it's a shame you can't download individual tracks, because this has some right crackers mixed in some proper duds. Saying that, if you're a hardcore WWE fan and MUST have EVERY theme song, you're in for a treat. It's also good if you want a new track in perfect quality to be uploaded on to your console to use in Smackdown vs Raw 2010 to update a superstar's entrance ie The Miz and Evan Bourne.
Hands down, the best track for me is 'I Came To Play' (The Miz). A brilliant track and up there with 'Voices' (Randy Orton) as one of the best modern WWE entrance themes. 'Domination' (Ezekiel Jackson) comes in second. The song has three stages, and is really a *ahem* 'thumping tune'. These two songs aside, most of the other tracks WWE volume 10 are a mixed bag of average, forgettable entrance themes.
Return Of The Hitman (Bret Hart) Radio (Zack Ryder) and Just Close Your Eyes (Christian) are also pretty good, but get stale after a few listens. For the record, I prefer the original versions of Christian's theme by Waterproof Blonde. Bret Hart's new update version is not as as good as the original Hart Foundation theme or the theme he started using in 1994.
Written In My Face (Sheamus) is alright, but it's far from excellent. 'Insatiable' (Tiffany) and 'You Can Look, But You Can't Touch' (The Bella Twins) are passable in their own right. More often than not on WWE CDs, Diva themes stand out like candy canes in a cactus patch.
'It's A New Day' (Legacy) and 'I Am Perfection' (Dolph Ziggler) sound like they've been knocked together on a rainy afternoon. Both bland with poor lyrics.
As for the pure rubbish? 'Pure Puerto Rico' (Primo) is highly irritating, the worst track on the album. 'New Foundation' (The Hart Dynasty) sounds like a drunken tramp falling in to a load of dustbins. 'Crank The Walls Down' (The Big Show and Chris Jericho) is so bad it's hilarious (On a side note, the prospect of a pairing of Show and Jericho is as stale as 200 year old bread).
Also, where is 'Broken Dreams' (Drew McIntyre)? That would of come in a straight third if it was included on the album.
So there's my review.
