London Motion Picture Soundtrack - Review -
A strong soundscape by The Crystal Method. When I keep in mind that they only had 6 weeks to compose the whole effort (well at least their contributions which is nearly 70 percent of the whole soundtrack) I am a little more forgiving, as to me most (not ALL of them mind you) of the tracks are rather simple...they don't change and morph as a lot of TCM tracks seem to...what you hear after the first minute of the song is what you're gonna keep on hearing until the next track snaps on. However, the standout tracks make this album a definite required download. The title track, "London", is awesome, and "Smoked" ..yup, better crank that one. "Onesixteen" and "Glass Breaker" are also VERY funky. As far as the rest of TCM's contributions...their stint with Hyper is a really nice inclusion. The other tracks (Roboslut, Defective, Vice) sound like they'd kick from the samples, but they are actually kinda boring...kinda like a hip hop instrumental vibe, where they aren't very intersting after they start...but that's no problem if you are using this as a dance album...and they do sound funky even if they were put together quickly. It's not like this is a studio album. Aight well I said my piece. Hold up....probably one of the coolest songs on the whole thing is actually not a TCM joint...if you aren't gonna get the album, do yourself a favor and pick up "Sucker Punch" by Connie Price and The Keystones. Peace all, and expect some more great things from TCM in the near future.
I downloaded the whole album, but should have stuck with only The Crystal Method's songs. The others are throwaways. After listening to the samples and reading the reviews I thought this disk would blow me away, but it didn't. I don't think this is TCM's best work (I prefer Legion of Boom), but maybe if I see how it's used within the context of the movie my position will change. Ex - "I Luv You" is just basic keyboard "mood music" that probably fits a particular scene in the movie, but as a standalone piece of music, I can't see myself listening to it more than twice.
Why do i have to buy the whole damn album?!
i dig tcm but i dont want all the songs i hate it when they make you buy the whole thing!
