Overview

Hearing Ministry's Alaine Jourgensen screaming "thieves, thieves & liars, murderers" over the clash of metal on metal during a wheelchair rugby match dutifully amplifies the primal nature of competition, especially when all of the players involved have overcome near-death physical (and psychological) injuries. Murderball, a documentary about the U.S. Paraplegic Rugby Team's quest for a medal in the Paralympic Games in Athens, Greece, won the Audience Award at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival. The film's producers have compiled a rousing soundtrack that reflects the sport's brutality while maintaining an undercurrent of regretful stoicism. Keyboard player/composer Jamie Saft provides Murderball's backbone, laying down an original score that boasts atmospherics which are both tender and visceral. Other highlights include the engaging "Something" from the Sea and Cake's Sam Prekop, a trippy instrumental from Ween and the Moldy Peaches "Anyone Else But You."

I've been blown away by both the documentary Murderball and the soundtrack. I'm a fan of Ministry and loved the other music in the film (in particular the score), and was thrilled when I bought this Cd and found it so consistently strong. Highlights include songs from The Polyphonic Spree, Ween, The Moldy Peaches and The Whiles.
