Unlike all the other Hollywood cyberthrillers, Strange Days gets a fabulous original soundtrack loaded with intense, angular tunes that are strictly future tense. The sensational "Selling Jesus" by U.K. newcomers Skunk Anansie kicks things off with a roar, actress Juliette Lewis does a fine job with P.J. Harvey's "Hardly Wait," and there's strong material from Tricky, Lords of Acid, Lori Carson, and Prong with Ray Manzarek (doing The Doors' "Strange Days"). Deep Forest's "Coral Lounge" has more energy than any four tunes on its latest album combined, and that group's collaboration with Peter Gabriel ("While the Earth Sleeps") is a high-energy stormer. --Jeff Bateman

Depends upon you

"If you live a narrow-scoped lifestyle, this album isn't for you. If you love only metal, you'll hate this album. If you love only rap, you'll hate this album. If you love only ambience, you'll hate this ablum. Strange Days has a mixture of everything just to [anger] the average listener. You need to be open-minded and accepting of all musical genres in order to appreciate this blend of music.There is no theme. This is no particular style. There is nothing dependable. Get over it and decide if you can appreciate more than one type of music. All entries are equally intruiging, but none are alike. Nothing is great, but nothing is terrible.The angry track by Jeriko One is probably the most intersting piece to this soundtrack, but that is (perhaps) because it plays such a significant role in the film. Deep Forest, Prong and Graeme Revell contribute powerful additions that the top 40 would overlook due to Generation-I-only-listen-to-music-I-can-dance-to exclude themselves to.This soundtrack is more fun than that, yet it deserves only 3 stars considering it does not stand out and say "My God, I HAVE to own that!"Strange Days, however, is a nice addition to any music-[lover's] collection."
Fall in the Light

"This soundtrack doesn't get full marks because it is missing a song or two that would have made it complete. However it does justice to the feel of the movie because of Jerico One and juliette lewis. I have never been so moved by a kiss in a film as i was by the scene that plays "Fall in the Light". When I hear it each time after i am just as moved.This cd helps me to carry that feeling wherever i go."
Pre Millenium Music that Suits the 2000s perfectly
Pedro Pontes | Rio de Janeiro, RJ Brazil | 05/07/2004

"This album merges styles as unlikely as it gets. A lot of press and average people talk about today's band mixing styles, but most of the time all you see is bands doind their regular stuff, but adding a bit of another style (rap + metal, for instance). This is not what this album is about. When I first heard it, I felt like it was something altogether new. Even hard rock songs, like those by Skunk Anansie, carry a very sharp eletronica feel to them. Like someone said, this is indeed futuristic music, but they forgot to say that......the future is now!"
