    Whoa, lets not start jerking the Wachowski's off just yet...

    by Dolemite_fan

    they do have a song with P.O.D. on here, and that band is trash. "IIIII feel sooo alive, so alive" *yawn*

    by Absolute Zero

    The DMB song is a remix version from Oakenfold. Its very spaced out, slow, and creepy sounding now and will play perfectly over the end credits.

    That playlist sucks ass

    by Dr_Jownz

    Except for Linkin Park, they have no youth oriented artists. They should have put the Hell Song and Losing Grip on there instead of some of that other crap.

  • March 30, 2003, 9:09 p.m. CST

    Okay, some of that is doubtful, but heck...

    by JTylor

    I'll get it for the Fluke and Juno Reactor tracks (Juno Reactor kicks so much ass. And Ben Watkins looks like Giles if he'd stayed Ripper)

  • March 30, 2003, 9:23 p.m. CST

    Cooooooooll. Compiles are more likely to get ripped

    by KONG33

    I mean, you can rip a whole band's cd, but with compilations, you'll be able to delete any track you do not care for. Glad to see M.Manson's 'Golden Age of Grotesque' is up there. But my question is, what are they going to include in the CD package to make people have to own it? A dvd with the trailer and inside stuff? pictures, etc?

    what a terribly shitty band. I downloaded the Dave Matthews track a few days ago when MTV posted this tracklisting and its decent.

    by supreme nothing

    by Fred Asparagus

    The audio side of The Matrix was one of the less impressive aspects of the movie. Tons and TONS of STOCK sound effects, plus some orchestral tracks that were played twice during the course of the movie. But it's a formula that worked so they don't seem to feel the need to change it.

  • March 30, 2003, 10:08 p.m. CST

    Well..I like...

    by KONG33

    Manson, Rob D. and Z., RATM never fades... I dislike POD, Linkin, I'm not crazy about Deftones but they're good. The other stuff I do not know yet and am dl-ing. Still it sounds like a decent cd. Isn't SOAD contributing? It's like they went out searching for bands with hideous goatees and things, but it could be worse.

    Dave Matthews, nice...

    by Castor777

    As a previous poster said, and from what I read off, the Dave Matthews song is a remixed version by Paul Oakenfold. I haven't heard it but Oakie and Dave combined sounds interesting as all hell. Would love to hear this version if anyone knows where to find it.

    by Skullfarmer

    A critique of the artists from a college radio DJ: Linkin Park-nu metal boy band. Marilyn Manson-Marilyn Manson bores me. 03. Rob Zombie-The biggest laugh I got in THE MATRIX was that club playing a Rob Zombie song when most of the people in there looked like they wouldn't be caught dead listening to Rob Zombie. Rob D - never heard of him Deftones-Great,the Deftones. I wonder if the lyrics actually make sense for once... Team Sleep - don't know 'em P.O.D.-Jesus would think they suck worse than Creed UnLoco - heard of them,never heard them. Rage Against The Machine - hypocrites Oakenfold - Who? Fluke - they are,aren't they? Dave Matthews - yuppie prozac shit Disc 2 Don Davis - I know I've heard his name... Juno Reactor-Nice strategy, putting the first band on the soundtrack that doesn't suck on the second disc. Rob D-again?

    MPAA film rating

    by Uga

    The MPAA has announced that "The Matrix Reloaded" has received an R rating for "sci-fi violence and some sexuality." Nice to see this series hasn't bowed to the PG-13 masses. Oh, also, "From Justin to Kelly" has been rated PG - I know you've been waiting for that one.

  • March 30, 2003, 11:41 p.m. CST

    This is classic!

    by Azlam Orlandu

    You know, just when I thought the Watchowskis were going to break from their mold of repackaging other peoples good ideas into a decent product, here comes the soundtrack to the Crow part 483. Christ, when are people going to stop making movies just to sell soundtracks. Especially soundtracks containing trendy bullshit like Linkin Park and such. At least they could find some underground tunes that aren't instantly recognizable. There goes any chance of these films being timeless. Should have known better. "Wuah ha ha ha ha ha!" (laughing all the way to the bank)

    Nu metal Rap rock bands suck

    by Jon E Cin

    I really hope this soundtrack is one of those soundtracks that have nothing to do with the actual score you hear in the film...please!!! Linkin Park, POD and Rob Zombie, suck pretty hard! At least Limp bizkit is not on here........yet, when that happens I might have to protest outside by drawing an outline of my body in tape outside "Wachowski land" and just lay there for a few days. That will stop them.....oh it wont.

  • March 31, 2003, 2:04 a.m. CST

    oh and Paul Oakenfuck is total crap

    by Jon E Cin

    Actually most DJs are crap, but he REALLY sucks! He did that awful Swordfish score! Anyone remember that? If not, listen to it, its AWFUL! Sounds like a bad cheesy 80's action movie mixed with cheesy 80's porn. At least 70's porn had funk. The movie looks cool, but a bad soundtrack can ruin everything.

  • March 31, 2003, 2:18 a.m. CST

    Paul Oakenfold is actually one of the better DJs

    by pablojakaffo

    I've heard a lot of DJs in my life but Paul Oakenfold's mixes have real power to them. They contain lots of variety, versus other DJs who just create the standard techno beat that you hear all the damn time. I suggest you listen to Perfecto Fluoro, the mix album Oakenfold did a few years back so you can get a sense of the energy of it. Paul Oakenfold's live mixes are INCREDIBLE. As for the Swordfish soundtrack, I liked it, more than the film itself. Seeing it fit in the film just made it seem odd. I don't know what's so hot about techno soundtracks to films. Most of such soundtracks have made the films seem so cool, when the core of the film itself didn't have much substance.

  • March 31, 2003, 3:09 a.m. CST

    the soundtrack of part 1...

    by Mr Brownstone

    was every bit as cheesy and transient, out of context, as these songs are, and there where only two scenes where the tunes where brought to the forefront. The nightclub scene and the ending. I'm sure the use of these tracks will be very similar in the sequels. Background music. Low in the mix.

    wonder how many of 'em will actually be in the movie...

    by phasmatrope

    Lineup sounds okay to me. Granted, there are people here talking shit, a lot of it petty and stupid, but hey. Finding music to please everyone is far more difficult than with a movie, which depends on reaching the biggest audience possible (Johnny Cash probably isn't expecting to sell records to O-Town-sodomizing crowd). For the most part, the first "Matrix" did a pretty decent job with actually featuring a lot of the music in the movie (unlike, say, "Batman Forever"), but they did have a handful songs on the album that weren't anywhere in the film: the Deftones, Ministry, Monster Magnet, Rammstein, Hive, etc. Pretty saavy of them to incorporate the Don Davis score into the CD though, as it seems usually only the hardcore film fans actually bother to buy the composed soundtrack these days (I'm sure they'll probably try to do a 1-CD version though, to try to sell more). Still, you know this is either really sad, or the hype is really amped if we're posting and speculating on what's going to be on the soundtrack for this movie (which is usually only a crass marketing tool anyway). After all, we didn't have anyone on here posting the soundtrack in advance for "Agent Cody Banks," now did we? (JK, fuck frankie)

    by MaulRat

    This is what I don't understand.. there seems to be an increasing trend.. when you scan across the talkbacks here, alot reads as negative towards... well... everything. Like its 'cool' to think everything sucks, or to be pessimistic about something which (lets face it) everybody knows fuck all about... (And I don't care how much you think you know). Watch the movie, people, then have the balls to fucking decide, rather than dismissing everything and never finding out that you were wrong.. you may find the world still hides some surprises for you. Wether or not the Matrix movies (or soundtracks) is one of these surprises remains to be seen, but still, it must be experienced before ANYONE can make a judgment, or go put on your black makeup and tie your favourite belt around your neck (be careful of your studded collar) and hang yourself in your own closet with a serated cheese grater lodged in your ass (or whatever it is you people do).. but for gods sake gets some joy in your life.

    A long-winded rundown....

    by XTheCrovvX

    OK, lets run this down, one by one...Linkin Park--Ya know...i actually dont hate the band...the whole point of them is that they mix equal parts pop, rock, and rap, and dont really belong to any of them.....but since i like all three genres, I think that they do what they do well, and thats all. However, Meteora is nowhere near as inventive as Hybrid Theory or Reanimation if the new some comes from there, might have a problem........Marilyn Manson--Never known a time when having Marilyn Manson around, especially on a soundtrack, was a bad thing....except for Tainted Love...that....was odd......Rob Zombie--When he goes back to making actual METAL instead of what he did on that last album, let me know.......Rob D--Just out of curiosity...does ANYBODy actually know who this sonuvabitch IS?! 10 million people have to be hounding for this guy since Clubbed To Death pretty much became THE track from the first Matrix soundtrack....and yet NOBODY i talk to knows where to find more of his stuff.......Deftones--The guy above said it best....NEVER speak an ill word about the Deftones. EVER. .....Team Sleep--For those who dont know, Team Sleep is actually Chino from the Deftones' side project...supposedly sounds a lot like Massive Attack (listen to Teenager on White Pony for an example), which is good, since the Massive Attack song SHOULD have been on the first Matrix soundtrack anyway...little odd putting it right after the Deftones track, though....P.O.D.--To quote a famous horse, "no sir....i dont like it." BUT, for some reason I've actually heard good things about this Sleeping Awake ill hope.....UNLoco--Nobody's really heard of them, but yes, they do rock.....Rage Against the Machine--Another "Never say an unkind word" band.....but regardless of what they put on the soundtrack, Wake Up BETTER be in the film at some point......Oakenfold--Fine....I bear him no ill......Fluke--I know ive heard them before...just cant figure out where....Dave Matthews--Huh???? Well...ok, if Oakenfold is remixing it, and it goes trippy, could be pretty cool...especially considering that Reloaded is supposed to end on a cliffhanger....should work ok....I know, this is way more than I should've written, but, hey, TBs need rational, "not everything sucks" voices nowadays....Revolution is my name....

    Talk about being pessimistic.

    by VincentGrayson

    Does anyone here *ever* think about the fact that maybe everything won't suck? Let's take a closer look at we have here... Linkin Park - I don't care if you hate their rap/rock/pop thing, this song isn't any of those three, it's instrumental, and quite good at that. Marilyn Manson - new song, dunno how it'll fit in, but I like Manson, and if it's good, it'll definitely contribute to the cd. Rob Zombie - new song...not a big fan of Rob, but as long as it's better than that Daredevil song. Rob D - He had what was arguably the best song on the first soundtrack, I'm hoping he continues that streak. Deftones - Great band, hopefully the song fits the movie. Team Sleep - I'm not familiar with them, so... POD - Pretty boring group, IMO, but with luck it'll be playing softly in the background during one scene or another UnLoco - Again, not familiar with them. RATM - Their song in the first one seemed out of place to me...maybe this one won't? Oakenfold - I have yet to hear a song from him in a film that is half as good as his regular stuff...but, he still tends to make pretty solid tracks, so I have faith. Fluke - I would wager most people have never heard of them, but they're pretty decent, although, not something I'd think of for the Matrix. DMB - I can't stand DMB, but hopefully Oakenfold's mix will make them tolerable. Don Davis - I must assume he's just a composer...I'm not familiar with his work really, but it can't be too bad...right? Juno Reactor - They're getting a lot of play in Animatrix-related stuff recently, and that works for me...2 new songs works for me too. Rob D - More? Cool. Don David vs Juno Reactor - Only good can come of this. I dunno, sounds good to me...I can't say I quite understand the overwhelmingly negative attitude towards the cd already.

    by godric

    Makes sense to me to have POD on this soundtrack. Maybe it'll sound more like their older stuff, before they got big--a lot more hardcore. And sense the original Matrix was FULL of Christian symbolism (the W's listed the Bible as one of their many and varied sources) it makes sense to have a group of Christians on the CD. At least, a group of 'em that play loud music.

    Um, Calm Like a Bomb IS a Rage song...

    by likdog

    I don't care if all the other songs on the 'track suck -- in the first movie, they went out with a sweet Rage song and if they use "Calm Like a Bomb," which is one of my favorites from The Battle of Los Angeles, in the same way, then that's good enough for me.

    I don't buy that Skullfarmer never heard of Oakenfold if he's heard of Juno Reactor, since both got their start in the whole Goa Trance scene in the early-mid nineties. Oakenfold, by the way, is huge in Europe (and the rest of the world) so while he isn't mainstream to us, he is to the rest of the world. And you know what? There's already a backlash. ;)

    by prodog

    some of you have asked. 'team sleep' is chino's (lead singer of deftones) side project. supposed to have more of sedated sound, like defotnes song 'change'. deftones can be hit or miss, but i highly, highly, highly recommend the album 'around the fur', specifically the tracks 'shove it (my own summer)', 'around the fur' and 'go far away (and drive)'. the whole thing is like a soundtrack to drunken, sweaty, deviant sex. and its all on kazaa, so do yourself a favor. good times!

    by fattestcat

    oakenfold's score for swordfish was pretty good, i thought. sorta like how lalo shiffrin used to mix pop with the traditional score thing. morricone too. & quincy jones. oakenfold may not be up there with those guys, but at least he's trying.

    by GQSioux

    The 3 Juno Reactor tracks alone will make the soundtrack pure gold. I have EVERYTHING Juno Reactor has ever done. Their last 2 albums are AMAZING. Their material is perfect for a film like The Matrix. I hope this finally gives them some exposure. They make the best Industrial/Trance-Ambient music on the planet, period. They're GODS.

    Oakenfold is one of the best known DJ's out there. Yes, he is a whole hell of a lot more popular in Europe but still, I find it very hard to believe any DJ wouldn't know who the hell he is. And what's with the guy calling this soundtrack a sellout and they're gonna ruin the Matrix? Do you fuckin' rememeber the original soundtrack? Yes - Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Rage Against the Machine. It's pretty much the same kind of thing over again - so cut the bullshit.

    deftones AND team sleep? with brand new tracks??? i'm there, not even linkin fart n pod can put me off for rage n rob d, well, frankly this is gonna rock. yes, daredevil had possibly the worst soundtrack ever, and spidey's wasnt much better, but the first matrix soundtrack kicked cuz they remembered to put some bands on there that actually gave a shit about music and not money. btw, on the subject of money, fuck linkin park n their shitty, cynical wankstain of a career. at least this new track doesnt have that serial gimp trying to scream like he means it over the top....THE MATRIX RULES.

    The MATRIX no longer has me

    by LukePerry

    Am I syched about this movie? A little bit. But when I see shit like Linkin Park and DAVE MATTHEWS (????????????????) and POD and shit like that on a Matrix album, it makes me blame Joel Silver once again for everything. He is a flaming piece of fucking shit.

    please let this musical genre die

    by rivetbadtz

    I agree, even Ministry, KMFDM, or NIN would be cool...but lal these tough guy rape core rap numetal bullshit coporate sludge bands...GAH! I thought this music sucked in 1998 when it got big. Tough guy rap/nu metal, bands with names like 'throwpoint', 'spilled', 'sick as fuck' need to go the way of Great White...without killing a hundred of their fans. "Dude, Linkin Park and POD are hella sick and tight for days yo!" ...ugh. This sort of music, boy bands, solo pop girl acts, corporate pop inide punk, and whiny alt preachy grunge need to go the way of the Dodo and David Hasslehoff's career.

    there's a review of "matrix: reloaded" online . . .

    by microwavable?

    . . . but whether or not it is credible is up for grabs. it is spreading pretty quick, though. i saw it over at and while it sounds like the sixth-grade writing that the site usually employs - its got some cool stuff - or creative. here's the cut and paste deal (don't blame me for misspellings): *************************** WoW!!!!!!! You probably just want to know everything and are very excited, but I can not tell everything but can tell a little! If you thought the first movie was confussing just wait till this one comes out. Way way way way way unconpairable confussing then the first movie. Lots and lost of new people in movie, mainly bad and deadly, what is realy cool about the people is that they move like machines and like vireses at the same time. Two twins in movie are unbleivable, especialy during the fight against Morpheus on the road. They dissapear like dust and reapear right in your face and no one can see them when their dust, not even Neo. One scean during the fight against Morpheus shows the two Twins taking silver knives and throwing hundreds of them at the same time at Morpheus, and Morpheus jumps up in air and does hundreds and hundreds of flips at the same time in the air in fast time. Another hint is that The Twins are stronger and better than Neo. Zion reminds me of Gothem City in the movie Batman, except with a roof. There is a ring leader of the bad people called Micronavigann, don't know how to spell it, he does not do much fighting just observing things, I think he secretly hates the machines. His wife Phephone, well you know what I mean, she is major mind bitc* thats all I can say about her, she is now in much of the movie. The best thing in the movie is when the Orical fights, way better than the Yoda fight against Count Dukoo, looks very real. You will just have to wait to see that. There is so much to talk about but you will just have to see the rest, like the Car Chase (deserves capitals), Trinity and Neo (love) not much as you think, flying, Zion, Agent Smith (Neo can still beet him but he gets infected by a vires), and last but not least all of the agents aginst the orical. My grandfather works with the co-producer and I visted the set and saw the movie, it is still not finished yet they will take one more month to correct everything eventhough the movie comes out May 15th. They will be on time but cutting it close, because they are still kind of filming unimportant little things. bye, see ya ******************************** that's all i've got. hope this doesn't get me in trouble, i didn't write it.

    Linkin Park does INSTRUMENTALS, u morons!

    by Syrus_Bleak

    Even if you don't like their rock, they also do techno, which is always on par. "Sessions" is an appropriate track for a Matrix movie (always techno-laden). Get you stuff straight before you start cryin' and whinin'!!!!

    Linkin Park Song: Session

    by Absolute Zero

    Its on the new CD Meteora... which in and of itself isnt that great. But the track Session is all instrumental and sounds like it was created for the movie, and not vice versa. The end of the track sounds like the connecting to the matrix sequence. Its not too shabby at all and I can see how it would fit perfectly.

    Furious Angels is a fucking kickass song

    by LukePerry

    And I will concede, I hate Linkin Park with every fiber of my being, yet this song fits. Too bad there is a Dave Matthews song on it (he is the fucking devil). You wanna know why that song is on this disc and has any association with the Matrix? Because Matrix made it into the mainstream's popular culture belief system and made its way into the minds of shitloads of people, and for some FUCKED UP reason, the honky asshole who is Dave Matthews (I heard he sucks ass too) is in the mainstream. That is why this song is on the disc. AND FUCK ROB ZOMBIE. I AM LUKE PERRY, AND I AM GOD.

    You may not like a few of the groups listed, but you don't (a) have to say it sucks before you hear it, or (b) say the movie will suck because you don't like the pop/rock soundtrack....... You know why the acts are mainstream? Because Matrix is a mainstream fucking movie.......... If I'm not mistaken it's in the top 100 grossing movies all time domestically. That means there is NOT going to be a pj harvey/explosions in the sky compilation (btw they are the group that should score a movie more than any imo), just get over it and try to enjoy your entertainment instead of looking for reasons to be angry about it.............. sluts

  • March 31, 2003, 8:06 p.m. CST

    actually, I agree with Rivetbadtz...

    by phasmatrope

    This kind of movie could use some hardcore industrialized KMFDM-style music (though we at least got some Ministry on the first album, albeit not a very good track. Then again, their one from "A.I." wasn't great either). Hollywood movies tend to shy away from that style, preferring to use either the neu-metal crap or poor-man's watered down industrial like Stabbing Westward & Gravity Kills. I'm sure Rob D. will come through again like he did on the first one. Juno Reactor may have done cheeso music for the "Mortal Kombat" movies, but generally they're pretty good. I understand why someone would want to criticize Rob Zombie, I'm not a huge fan either, but he still has more skill and vision than many derivative rap-wannabes like Linkin Park and P.O.D. Those guys just got included on this album because they're considered the "next big thing", whereas R.Z. has a genuine love for genre movies and drivein sci-fi/horror stuff, and thus has more place. Say what you will about "House Of 1000 Corpses" but he did it as a tribute to the gory 70s indie "Texas Chainsaw"-style movies that he loved, and you sure as hell won't see Linkin Park or P.O.D. directing one of their own anytime soon (though they'll probably just end up on the cheapo marketing ploy soundtrack for next "Scream" wannabe teen slasher movie to come along).

    my only objection

    is to LukePerry's claim of divinity!! i liked the first matrix cuz when u got behind the mainstreamness, it had a couple of interesting points, and who knows maybe pod will finally crank out a song that i like, it could happen!!

    Davis and, uh, Trance Group #147.

    by Cassius the Evil

    Well, being the ELITIST PRICK that I am I couldn't care less about Disk 1. Disk 2, however... what they were thinking when they teamed up Don Davis, whose original Matrix score was probably the best of that year (and easily one of the best action scores of all time) with those dried-up trance whores in Juno Reactor. Look folks, I'll admit that compared to the rest of the genre, Juno Reactor isn't that bad; Bible of Dreams was a halfway decent album, actually. But their last release was just horrible... like they tried to take all the deep intellectual shit they could come up with and make it into OMG DANCE DANCE FUN party music, and it doesn't work from either angle. Now normally I wouldn't care what they were doing except they're being placed beside one of the best up-and-coming composers on the planet (a guy who came close to outdoing Williams in JP3), who would almost certainly be rocking me the fuck out of my socks if I didn't have to get up and skip a track every few minutes. Cripes guys, why'd you have to go and sully one of the releases I've been looking forward to the most in the next year? I hate you all. :(((((

    Whoever said that the Matrix movies will not be remembered Liste

    by LukePerry

    They will be for many reasons upon many reasons. Not that I know that much, seeing as how I created everything that happens to be part of the living universe that you happen to reside in, but that is beside the point. The Matrix will last a lot longer than ten years, for these reasons and these reasons many. First and foremost, there happens to be a cult of fandom that loves the Matrix more than they love their mothers and fathers, a group of fandom so dedicated to the Matrix and all variations upon it that they will sit through shit films such as Dreamcatcher and various others just to catch a glimpse of what is in store in the coming months. Next, the movie, as I said once before and was seconded and thirded, the movie blended the mentality of the outsider with the likes of mainstream popular standards. It is a movie that enabled kids to blame movies for the violence that they decided to inflict upon others, yet everyone who has seen it remembers something about it, and nearly everyone in the history who happens to be alive at this point (and those in Heaven as well) has seen this film and has loved some part of it. Third, there is a point in life where one has to decide what needs to be mature about and not mature about, and it just so happens that a lot of people who have seen this movie see it as just that, a film. Not a way of life, a film. My next point, the Matrix, to another more fanatical group or section of people, is a way of life. They have begun to accept that the Matrix is in fact a reality, and that all existence has blossomed from this. I, being God, am upset by this, but all people need to voice their opinions no matter how disgusting they might be or despicable. That is all, and have a glorious night. God loves all.

    [NEO sits in the corner of the ship. It is cold, and the loss of THE ORACLE chills him even more. TRINITY approaches NEO.] TRINITY: "You look tired. Have this, it is all we have left." [TRINITY hands NEO a smashed Snicker's bar, but he refuses.] TRINITY: "Neo, I have something to tell you." [NEO looks up.] "I love you. Still." NEO: "I know." [NEO stands up and they embrace. Dave Matthews' "When the World Ends" swells, and the two kiss tenderly.] NEO: "Hail to the king, baby." [NEO removes his penis. He looks down, surprised that it is extremely limp and flaccid. TRINITY sees his look of tension.] TRINITY: "Your penis has atrophied." NEO: "But . . . why?" TRINITY: "Because techinically, you've never used it." [Dave Matthews swells louder now. Robert Smith from the hit band The Cure suddenly appears and begins to belly dance. Several Ewoks run up to the couple and hug them. The Dave Matthews' song dissolves to a James Brown piece, and the credits roll.]
