Synopsis

Amazon.com
Godzilla's return to the big screen mixes old and new; this monster of a flick infuses '90s special effects into the classic tale of a lizard gone awry. In effect, the movie's soundtrack embraces a similar resurrection: established artists either breathing new life into well-worn tunes or showcasing exclusive tracks and new lineups. And, like the movie, the soundtrack only succeeds on certain levels. The Wallflowers' recording of David Bowie's "Heroes" (the album's single) is hardly groundbreaking, and the predictable Puffdaddy treatment to Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" drags on. The Foo Fighters, here in their first recording to feature new guitarist Franz Stahl, take a mellow pop tromp. Ben Folds Five's "Air" and Green Day's "Brain Stew," the latter remixed especially for Godzilla, are the album highlights. As the saying goes, sometimes bigger isn't better. --Jason Verlinde

CD Reviews

Good soundtrack, GREAT movie
G$ash17 | Nashville, TN | 06/13/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I can't believe how stupid people are, when this movie came out people whined about it for various reasons. Some said well it doesn't look like the old Godzilla, ok it would have been nice but they set out for it to look more like a lizard not a man in a costume, and this is easily better than any corny Japanese Godzilla movies, which I enjoy as well but let's be realistic. As far as the Soundtrack it's good but not great, more around 3 1/2 stars but since some idiots on here reviewed the movie not the soundtrack it deserves more than 3 stars. Good tracks by Fuel, Green Day, Days of the New and others and the last two tracks from the score were good as well."
Revisiting the Godzilla Soundtrack

"The film "Godzilla" from the year 1998 seemed to catch some mixed reviews, but in looking back at the soundtrack that accompanied the film, it is safe to say it is still a hit to this day. For modern rock enthusiasts, recognizable bands will be seen with the likes of Rage against the Machine, Fuel and the Foo Fighters, while the Wallflowers and Ben Folds Five are now distant memories.

Regardless, the contributions throughout the soundtrack for the Godzilla movie are still very poignant. There is an incredible kinetic energy that comes through with P. Diddy and former Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy page on the tune "Come with me", while another solid tune being Days of the New with the whiskey acoustics of "Running Knees". Green Day and 90s grunge troopers Silverchair also have songs featured on the soundtrack, which rounds out with a couple of scores from the film."
