All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
Director Michael Mann is known for modifying moods through music, particularly in urban settings. There were all those rain-slicked tracking shots in Miami Vice, for example, accompanied by Phil Collins and Dire Straits. For 1995's Heat it was Moby, Lisa Gerrard, and Kronos Quartet, all contributing pieces that heightened the film's dense, psychological air. And for Mann's return to the crime caper genre in 2004's Collateral, it's a stellar mixed bag of gripping, tense instrumentals and evocative, sonically varied artist contributions.

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
Director Michael Mann is known for modifying moods through music, particularly in urban settings. There were all those rain-slicked tracking shots in Miami Vice, for example, accompanied by Phil Collins and Dire Straits. For 1995's Heat it was Moby, Lisa Gerrard, and Kronos Quartet, all contributing pieces that heightened the film's dense, psychological air. And for Mann's return to the crime caper genre in 2004's Collateral, it's a stellar mixed bag of gripping, tense instrumentals and evocative, sonically varied artist contributions. Producer Tom Rothrock gets things rolling in a Mann-ish direction with "Briefcase" -- the track throbs like a power cable buried under a city street. Score excerpts from James Newton Howard and City of God composer Antonio Pinto are equally powerful, offering a mix of knives glinting in shadows Pinto's "Car Crash" and serviceable chase scene dynamics the Howard piece "Vincent Hops Train". Latin-flavored selections by Calexico and Green Car Motel hint at the film's traverse through L.A.'s ethnic patchwork, there's a lovely excerpt from Miles Davis' Bitches Brew classic "Spanish Key," and the Roots with Cody ChesnuTT offer some streetwise, vibey soul with "The Seed 2.0." The only misstep here is a noneventful remix of Oakenfold's "Ready Steady Go." Its substance-less big beat thump feels like 21st century soundtrack filler; in fact, it fits better with Oakenfold's work on Swordfish. Sequence out "Ready Steady," and Collateral is comparable to Mann's greatest meetings of music and film.

    The movie is as godd the this soundtrack

    The soundtrack goes well with this movie. With the different moods it gives for of a feel of what the situation was or to me, brings back memories of being little growing up in the LA area. I think that Ready, Steady, Go went well with the club seen. I dont think that it was out of place

    Great soundtrack with good artists!

    I liked the movie, so I went out and bought the soundtrack right afterward. The soundtrack has a good mix of songs, with some rock, some hiphop, and a wide variety of jazz. Also, unlike many other soundtracks for summer blockbusters, the Collateral soundtrack included four scores from James Newton Howard (one of my absolute favorite score composers). As I don’t typically follow jazz, I didn’t hear of Klazz Brothers, who does an absolutely fantastic job here, until now. Audioslave makes an appearance, as well as Calexico (also a great band). Great soundtrack, couldn’t be happier with the purchase!
