Overview

It may be called Valentine, but you can be sure an album that begins with the "Porno Holocaust Remix" of Rob Zombie's "Superbeast" won't dwell on hearts and flowers, at least not living ones. The soundtrack to Valentine -- a horror film about a group of young women stalked by a childhood acquaintance starring David Boreanaz and Denise Richards -- is a delectably frightening collection of aggressive rock with a techno edge. It's a nearly definitive sampling of loud and angry modern rock, ranging from Marilyn Manson's apocalyptic "Valentine's Day" and Orgy's urgent "Opticon" to grungy anthems from the Deftones ("RX Queen") and Linkin Park ("Pushing Me Away") to the eerie and dynamic "Breed" from Snake River Conspiracy and Filter's slow burning, eight-minute "Hybrid Mix" of their hit,"Take a Picture." Amidst the brutal guitars and growling vocals, a few tracks shift to kinetic club beats with no loss of energy or coherence. Amanda Ghost's "Filthy Mind," BT's "Smartbomb (BT's Mix)," and Static-X's "Love Dump (Mephisto Odyssey's Voodoo Mix)" use pounding rhythms to heighten the album's already feverish energy. Bypassing the sweet sentiments of the February holiday, this Valentine is about the loud loathing and bitter release that can be cathartic year-round.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Every teen horror movie needs its heavy metal soundtrack album, and Valentine is no exception. The Warner Sunset/Warner Bros. album, drawn from the Warner Bros. motion picture, is basically a sampler of the label's hard rock roster, featuring tracks by the likes of Disturbed, Static-X, Linkin Park, Deftones, Orgy, Filter, Snake River Conspiracy, and, making their debut, Beautiful Creatures. The ringers are Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson, along with Soulfly, whose "Son Song," featuring Sean Lennon, is not actually featured in the film. Fans of the featured artists should note that, while there is nothing previously unreleased here, many tracks are presented in remixes or are otherwise unusual. For example, Disturbed's "God of the Mind" is making its American premiere, having only appeared before as a bonus track on international copies of The Sickness; the version of Filter's "Take a Picture" is the "hybrid mix," which runs eight minutes; and the "Mephisto Odyssey's voodoo mix" of Static-X's "Love Dump" has only turned up before on a 12" single. The overall style is up-tempo, electronica-inflected heavy metal, which, as ever, seems like appropriate music to chop up attractive teenagers to.

i usually shun soundtracks seeing how they are full of unknown people but this soundtrack is awesome. it includes orgy[my fav. band], disturbed [another fav band and they have ''god of the mind'' on this soundtrack which can only be found either on napster or their imported cd], rob zombie [cool guy], static-x, professional murder music [a new but promising band, marilyn manson[ a truly messed up guy with good music], and Amanda Ghost. this is a rad soundtrack
