Overview

Music genres separated along racial divides, like rock and rap, have always borrowed from each other, even if it's bands on the edges of either camp. The soundtrack to the film Judgment Night takes the racial themes of the movie to the soundtrack, pulling together some of the best acts in both genres. Rather than cover existing songs, the bands collaborated on the frequently shared themes of injustice, violence, prowess at the mike, and love of the herb. Every track is exceedingly well constructed and produced, though it's debatable if new ground is being covered. By taking rap acts that already lean toward rock, like House of Pain and Ice-T, and rock acts that dabble in rap, like Faith No More, there aren't many surprises. Two tracks, "Fallin'" with Teenage Fan Club and De La Soul, and "I Love You Mary Jane" with Sonic Youth and Cypress Hill take a decidedly mellow approach. The other tracks feed off each other's rage and rhythm, particularly Slayer and Ice-T's "Disorder" and Helmet and House of Pain's "Just Another Victim." Surprisingly, the only track that really falls flat is the Pearl Jam and Cypress Hill collaboration "Real Thing."

A soundtrack that is actually better than the movie it accompanies happens once in a blue moon. Here, the movie is estremely forgettable (Cuba Gooding, Jr. was in it. My knowlege ends there) but the soundtrack's concept of merging hard rock and rap was (in 1993 mind you) legendary, proving that with a helping hand, rap does have its place in the mosh pit. And its not all noise and F words- De La Soul and Teenage Fanclub chill out with "Fallin" (sampling a well known Tom Petty tune). Mudhoney and Sir Mix A Lot serve up some surf grunge with "freak Momma" (containing a funny line about how Sir Mix A Lot will lose all his street cred). And as much as the Biohazard/Onyx pairing gets annoying, its the perfect song to listen to right after you break up with your girlfriend. Bang your head to this.
