Move over, Daredevil and X-Men 2. The soundtrack to Matrix Reloaded -- one of the most anticipated flicks of summer 2003 -- packs more punch than the competition. Not surprisingly, the mood is anything but mellow, with squalls blowing in from the likes of P.O.D., who check in with the hefty "Sleeping Awake," and the Deftones, whose "Lucky You" appears alongside "The Passporter," the first recorded material from singer Chino Moreno's Team Sleep side project. While those tunes will appear on impending discs from the respective bands, Matrix Reloaded: The Album has its share of otherwise unavailable songs, notably Rob Zombie's typically gnashing "Reload" and a new version of Dave Matthews's "When the World Ends," which gets a deep injection of spaciness courtesy of trance king Paul Oakenfold. In addition to the sonic component, the disc contains a bevy of bonuses for Matrix diehards, including: trailers, a documentary on the making of the flick, a video game, and a collection of cheat codes to help crack the game's inner sanctum.

This looks like a fine collection of songs. I'm really looking forward to receiving it in the mail. I loved both Matrixes (or Matrices for the grammatically correct). I definitely preferred the first Matrix, but that probably has to more with the fact that I watched it so much. You see, I am plagued with a chronic diarreah disorder. It's a pretty disgusting illness, so most people prefer to stay away from me, and they definitely prefer to stay out of my house. The place reaks and the bottom of the toilet seat is covered with fecal stalactites. I spend a lot of time watching movies by myself. Hence, I fell in love with The Matrix because it is one you can watch again and again. It's also nice to have on DVD, so I can pause it when I run to the bathroom to have a 4 alarm blowout. It doesn't help the smell being that I like to eat a lot of tuna and cottage cheese. This collection of songs looks like it highlights some of the best tracks from the movie, and I've heard a couple of them on the radio lately, so I think this album is going to be huge.
After watching the film, I wanted to listen to the soundtrack properly and this is great stuff! It's got some real corker's that I'm sure you will still be listening to in years to come. Hope they release more songs from the film that weren't included on this album.
The second MATRIX movie looks great. The soundtrack, in comparison, I'm not too sure about. Dave Matthews Band and P.O.D.? Give me a break... On the positive side, I like how some of the artists on the first soundtrack (Marilyn Manson, Rob Dougan, and Deftones) are back again. All in all, here's hoping the soundtrack for MATRIX: REVOLUTIONS provides some great listening.
Now'n days I'm one of the few people that does not dl every conceivable piece of music online through P2P software. However, after seeing the new soundtrack's roster on the web site I couldn't help but drool.....Deftones....Marilyn Manson......Rage Against the Machine! With a line up like that how can you go wrong. Well, I dl the CD and soon found myself deleting it. Can't judge a book by its cover. The names were hard rock the music was exactly the opposite. One of the few groups that held down their genre was my favorite local group from Austin, UnLoco. I know it would have been hard to do, but they could have at least scrounged up some never before heard Rage song instead of just taking it off of Battle Of L.A. Just compared to the energy the first Matrix soundtrack gave me I was expecting the same if not more from Reloaded. Hopefully the movie will make up for this lackluster compilation.
I can't get enough of this album. As a disenfranchised sophomore in an all-boys high school, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this over hyped piece of trash, and wow. Me and my posse of angry boys really got into the music and when we all put our trench coats on in the middle of May and saw the movie, it was so cool even though all of the fight scenes are the same boring block, block, punch, repeat and despite the fact that a football playing mouthbreather tripped me in the aisle and made me spill my popcorn, yo. But anyone who doesn't like the Matrix just doesn't get it, even though I needed a thesaurus for that last scene with the Architect. That's what me and my friends say. P.O.D. rocks.
Well, the Matrix 1 soundtrack was great, a mix of rock/industrial/electronic. Now it seems they have branched out, choosing more rock-like artists like POD, and Dave Mathews. Then they also chose some more trance-techno like stuff like the Paul Oakenfold and Fluke songs. I do not like Dave Mathews, or POD, and the Oakenfold song, the 30 seconds I heard sounded like it sucked. They tried something different, and it worked out better than if they stayed with similar sounding music. (similar to Matrix 1)
This soundtrack was decent, but was definately not up to par compared to the original Matrix soundtrack. "Calm Like A Bomb" by RAGE was definately a better choice than "Wake Up" which was featured in the first soundtrack. It went well with the movie (wake up) but "Calm Like A Bomb" is has a lot more energy in it, and the bridge is cool (the first 10 times you hear it). They should've gotten some "The Crystal Method" on here though! They would have made it a lot more (i hate to use this word) "hype". (They made the background music they played when Neo sees the woman in the red dress in "The Matrix" and the whole song is great. I think it's called Replacement Killers.) Anywho, that Dave Matthews Band song "When the World Ends" doesn't really fit with the other bands' songs on the CD, but the lyrics sort of make sense. I really just think it was a "stick-em-on-there-for-hecks-sake" thing. Yea, maybe it will attract more people to buy this album. All in all this album is pretty: average.
This album should be at the top of everyone's list, especially rock fans and music lovers. Terry Date and Charlie Clouser are awesome musicians, so just wonder what they do when they are together!One of my friends owns this CD, and it is just amazing how good it sounds...but, of course...Date and Clouser made it happen!
Ive seen the movie i cant wait to see the next one so i think this is the best soundtrack of all time because it reminds me of the movie.
I enjoyed a few of the songs on the album, including "Furious Angels" and "Chateau" by Rob Dougan, "Burly Brawl" and "Teahouse" by Juno Reactor. These songs were directly from the movie and including the song by POD are something to get you in the mood.
Well. I'm not exactly into Marilyn Manson. In fact I listen to a lot more old-school type guitar and trance stuff. But I have always collected interesting film scores and soundtracks and so I decided to burn this one off of somebody. It wasn't bad. It made me want to check out the first Matrix cd, which was better (although, yeah, it does feel outdated now). I kept hoping someone would talk about how amazing Rob D was but only one or two of you mentioned him. Wow. Track 4 on all of the albums is by far the best music I have heard in a while. I love it. I'm very into cinematic, barren-wasteland type music that just wakes you up. My favorite two parts in the original Matrix were when Neo sees the woman in the red dress, and at the end when you hear the first few seconds of "Wake up": the only seconds worth listening to, really. The other tracks are good to drive to but not exactly what I want to listen to when I'm hanging out. I liked the Oakenfold, Fluke, and Linkin Park remixes (gag me, I never thought I'd tell anyone I liked Linkin Park) and some of the score on the second cd was good also. I can't wait to see how the Revolutions score turns out. I think the other songs could have been better but just . . . weren't. I think that Reloaded was a complete dissapointment, it seems like they were just trying to suck as much money off of the people as they could. Man. They should have gotten rid of those retarded rave and sex scenes.
great cd. everything except 4 dave mattews band or what ever. first 2 songs are the only good 1s
