There's a distinct flavor of mystery and intrigue woven through the hip-hop and rap found on the Bad Company soundtrack. Tricky's charcoal-hued rasp intones menace over a kaleidoscope of piano, background vocals, and factory-like noises, while the Dub Pistols' song contains a melancholy guitar riff snaking through its moody textures, like the gloomier moments from Moby's Play filtered through street-weary lyrics. Gorillaz, D12, and ex-Specials' member Terry Hall creep and stomp in a haunted house of beats and samples, while trip-hopping of the sinister (Jahei featuring Duganz) and longingly crooning (Rama Duke) varieties continue the emotive atmospheres. Save for Next's classic slice of soul singing, songs that deviate from the ominous ambience fare worse--Pretty Willie's repetitive "Na Na" and Jagged Edge's watery remake of Air Supply's "All Out of Love" especially misstep, marring an otherwise excellent soundtrack. --Annie Zaleski

"I'm fully aware that some of this "music" was in the movie, unfortunately. Remember that scene in the movie (and trailer) when Anthony Hopkins says "Is that rap? It's terrible."The CD has nothing going for it, sans BMBBO (Trevor Rabin). A true "Bad Company Soundtrack" would have the score to the movie. Most of these "songs" included were in the movie no longer than 1 minute. Trevor Rabin is a musician; these 'artists' are not...."
Great movie, great soundtrack

"Well the bad company soundtrack is pretty good, I think and to all the illiterate people out there: It says "music from the motion picture" on the cover of the CD not "score of the motion picture". You might also turn the CD and read the names of the songs before you buy it and then complain about it."
Not what it could have been.

"The CD is decent. Trevor Rabin has a serious problem with being unable to produce full Orchestrated Scores in movies like this, another example of it would be Armageddon. Bad Company had a better Orcestral Score than it did regular soundtrack, and I give it such low ratings because there is only one track, only one, which holds the orchestral theme to it. This movie had a brilliant score, and the rest of the music on this soundtrack is plain harsh to my ears."
