Overview

Rock may be dead at present (so say members of the rock-crit cognoscenti, borne out to large degree by current Top 40 playlists), but you'd never know it from the soundtrack to SCREAM 3, the final installment of director Wes Craven's smirky horror trilogy. You get riffs, riffs, and more riffs here, from new (and newish) monsters of rawk like Creed, Powerman 5000, Sevendust, and Incubus. Creed, whose lead singer, Scott Stapp, is sounding just a skosh less like Eddie Vedder these days, bookend the soundtrack with a pair of tracks, one previously released ("What If," from their hit album HUMAN CLAY) and the other brand-new ("Is This the End"). You get riff-o-rama from Slipknot ("Wait and Bleed"), major riffage from Sevendust ("Fall"), and crushing riffola -- not to mention ooh-so-scary vocals -- from Dope ("Debonair"). While there's precious little from the rock 'n' rap contingent, save for Ear2000's "Click Click," the sequenced synths of electronica rear their compellingly dehumanized heads on tracks like Static-X's "So Real." Let us not forget System of a Down's downbeat "Spiders," the Incubus onslaught called "Crowded Elevator," and Godsmack's "Time Bomb," in which lead singer Sully Erna is sounding just a little less like James Hetfield. With 18 total tracks, a couple are bound to be ho-hum (take a bow, Coal Chamber and Orgy), but the majority of SCREAM 3 rocks like an avalanche.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Huey
The soundtrack to Scream 3 is mostly devoted to state-of-the-art (circa 2000) alternative metal, with some of the biggest bands in the genre -- Buckcherry, Powerman 5000, Creed, Sevendust, System of a Down, Godsmack, Orgy, Coal Chamber -- chipping in contributions. Some of the lesser-known bands can sound kind of generic, but on the whole, the soundtrack's musical coherence and the high alt-metal pedigree of its contributors make for a pretty listenable album.
