A slice of the '70s
It's hard to review a soundtrack album without a review of the movie, but here it goes… It would be easy to dismiss this as just an ordinary afternoon of programming on your local classic rock station, however Rob Zombie uses these tracks to provide his film with a seamless backdrop. The real treasures on this disc are the Terry Reid tunes. The scenes in which they appear (including the end credits) are perfectly paired. My only complaint is that there are too many heavy hitters here. The impact of Free Bird is lessened because we have already heard several rock staples. Maybe a few more obscure tunes would have been more appropriate. Otherwise, this a fantastic compilation of goodies. Oh… and the movie is phenomenal.
This is one of the best movies ever made, and its soundtrack is partly responsible for that. Rob Zombie's love for the late 70s era is well displayed here. It IS a movie soundtrack and we usually buy movie soundtracks after we see a movie as a sort of remembrance (and because we like the music to begin with). His use of the particular songs in their particular places in the movie actually brings about new emotions not experienced before when hearing the songs on the radio. I mean, who didn't get enough of "Freebird" in high school? There is a different emotion there for me now when I hear it (thanks to its association with the movie) that actually makes me want to hear it again for the zillionth time. This soundtrack is as well thought through as the movie.
Awesome Soundtrack for an Awesome Movie
I've seen this movie and let me tell you.....it is awesome! Everything in this movie was good, and it was a lot better than House of a 1000 Corpses. And when I say everything in Devil's Rejects was awesome I mean the music too. This is one of the best soundtracks for a movie I've ever heard. I'm not much of a country fan, in fact I REALLY don't like country, but this CD is incredible. Midnight Rider is the song they play during the opening and let me tell you it fits like a glove and really fits with the theme. Another favorite is Terry Reid's Seed of Memory, and the reason I like that one is cause I work in a movie theater and I had to clean the theater after the movie was over and I got to hear this song. And I instantly feel in love with the song. And of course who could forget Free Bird by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Who dosen't like that song? It's truely an american classic! They play the song at the end and they play the entire verses and the chores and 2 minutes of the guitar solo. All in all you would be a fool not to get this CD and not to see Devil's Rejects.
