Another solid Michael Mann soundtrack
Posted by: ragnar from: on
There are a few missteps, such as Nonpoint's dreadful cover of "In the Air Tonight" and an alternate version of "Anthem" from the one played in the film, but, all in all, the typical music melding genius of Michael Mann ("Heat", "Ali", "The Last of the Mohicans") still shines through on this CD.
The re-mix of "Sinnerman", the Moby/Patti LaBelle collaboration and Goldfrapp's "Strict Machine" are just a few of the standout tracks on this disc.
Although the TV theme is still nowhere to be found, the music score has some similarity to Jan Hammer's stylistics. Give "A-500" a listen and you'll recognize a bit of "Crockett's Theme" in there.
Lastly, for some reason, the Jay-Z/Linkin Park track most associated with this film is not present on this CD. Not too big of a loss I guess, as that track is so readily available.
