It’s the end of the world as we know it, but you’ll feel fine with this hard-rockin’ soundtrack. Titan A. E. is summer 2000’s requisite Armageddon flick -- only this time, the fate of mankind lies in the hands of an animated crew of vagabonds voiced by an A-list of Hollywood stars, including Matt Damon, Drew Barrymore, Bill Pullman, and Janeane Garofalo. The soundtrack features heavy hitters, too, with fresh new tracks from some of modern rock’s finest. Lit blasts off with "Over My Head," the rocket-fueled first single that sets the tone for the rest of this brawny, boisterous album. Ozzfest veterans Powerman 5000 weigh in with their head banger anthem "The End Is Over," while alt hip-hop group Fun Lovin’ Criminals contribute the ominous rap-rock track "Everything Under the Stars." The album's second half is filled with soul-infused dance tracks, including a sexy club burner from the underappreciated Brit outfit Texas, the discofied "Everybody’s Going to the Moon" from space cowboy Jamiroquai, and a deliciously jazzy trip-hop tune called "Down to Earth" from Luscious Jackson. With its blend of sci-fi rock and celestial electronica, Titan A. E. makes excellent listening for any century.

Titan A.E. based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
A fitting end to an era; if anybody wanted the best of humanity's loudest, most defiant anthems, this would have to be it. Glen Ballard has probably created a soundtrack, targetted at younger, more daring audiences, that finally rivals those of the Sci-Fi epics. With songs like The Urge's ''It's My Turn To Fly'' and the intriguing poetry like essence of ''Karma Slave'' by Splashdown, the title soundtrack of Titan A.E paints a picture of a world so vivid, and virtually fits every single character in the movie. The way it portrays the characters is so fine that it's just simply amazing. Makes a powerful blast of songs, some wicked and others bittersweet, to celebrate humanity's swansong.
I thought that the movie was cool, so I got the soundtrack, and it was GREAT!! I like the different mix of music that is featured on this cd. Out of the whole cd, there were only two tracts that I didn't absolutely love, so I'd say that it's a pretty zesty cd.
