Put together the grandiose vision of director Oliver Stone (JFK, Natural Born Killers), the larger-than-life world of professional football, and the over-the-top theatrics of Al Pacino (the Godfather, Dog Day Afternoon), and what do you expect? A quiet little soundtrack of introspective folk songs? No, this is a Wagnerian production in which the pace never lets up. Whether it's the protometal of Godsmack, the petulant whine of Courtney Love fronting the always grungy Hole, or the expletive-laden Kid Rock, the frontal attack is always overkill. Sunday star Jamie Foxx performs the title track, which, while subdued, still moves forth on an ominous note. Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott's track "Who You Gonna Call" has a sly sense of humor. L.L. Cool J (who also appears in the film) performs "Shut 'Em Down," sounding like a speed freak spilling the company secrets. Now, if only we could convince Pacino to rap. --Rob O'Connor

This is supposed to be a "soundtrack?"

"After seeing the movie, I was eager to get ahold of the soundtrack. Boy was I wrong. This soundtrack captures only a few of the songs that were actually used in the movie. I was extremely upset at what was a clear attempt to "market" this soundtrack as a rap/hard rock album than what it should have been, a soundtrack that stays true to the movie. What a commercial sellout by whoever put the soundtrack album together. I heard several songs by Moby and other dance/techno artists throughout the film, but none of their songs were included on the CD. If you are a fan of rap, which I'm not, then I'd recommend the album. If you saw the movie and liked the music from the movie, don't buy the soundtrack."
Great movie, mediocre soundtrack

"After seeing perhaps the best film of the year,I immediately went out and bought the soundtrack and I have to admit, I was a little dissapointed. The cuts by hole, kid rock, jamie foxx, and dmx are decent, however the soundtrack would've been so much better if it had included the adrenaline pumping sports anthems ACTUALLY included in the movie such as Kid Rock's "Bawitdaba" and black Sabbath's "Paranoid". Another low point is that when I looked in the credits of the cd and saw that additional diolague was included, I thought Pacino's gut wrenching, inspiring pre-game talks would be sandwiched between tracks along with the memorable "Willie Beaman" jingle. Instead, I found some meaningless quotes sampled over looped drum beats. Overall, a poor showing for a great movie."
Bless Me, Father

"That song you guys are referring to is an extremely rare, unreleased song by P.O.D. entitled "Bless Me, Father". Unfortunately, it's only appearance is in the movie. They also recorded a cover of the Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby", however it too remains unreleased..."
