Two thirds self-indulgence...one third movie mayhem.
on 14 June 2001
The actual film soundtrack does not begin until track 12, so if you're a fan of the movie you may feel duped. The first ten tracks are rap, 'inspired' by the film and no doubt 'inspired' by Wesley Snipes (Album's Executive Producer....mmm). A dozen tracks from the movie are missing including the end credits tune! (I bet those artists are pleased!) The remaining techno/dance tunes have been pushed to the end. That said, when they finally arrive they are bangin' tunes. Pump Panel's "vampire bloodbath frenzy", recently revamped by Public Domain and the Warp Bros, sets the tone along with Expansion Union's "final battle". Thankfully, it's a long album so the blistering last 20 minutes will just about get your money's worth but left me feeling cynical. Approach "music from & inspired by" soundtracks with caution, they really mean "anything we want".
