Three tracks to note on this companion to the hit cyberthriller: 1) A funky and inconsequential debut by the David Byrne-less Talking Heads (now just The Heads) featuring Deborah Harry; 2) A mesmerizing, The The-like tune ("A Big Day in the North") marking the American debut of Black Grape, the promising new venture for Happy Mondays founder Shaun Ryder; and 3) "Party Man," a trademark mid-tempo Peter Gabriel yawner co-written to no apparent effect by Tori Amos. --Jeff Bateman

Similar in many ways to the "Strange Days" soundtrack. This has a mostly good mix of altnernative rock and electronica. Standouts: an otherwise unavailable song by Tricky, "Young Boys" by Lords of Acid, plus songs by William Orbit, Juno Reactor and Traci Lords (music by Juno Reactor). Also noteworthy is the song "Big Day in the North" by Black Grape, Shaun Ryder's post Happy Mondays project.

"Overall this is a valuable buy. Virtuosity has an intense techno theme throughout that I found enjoyable in many ways. I particularly liked the pieces by LIVE and LORDS OF ACID. Virtuosity is an exciting movie AND soundtrack across the board. If you prefer techno in the slightest, I recommend this buy."

"When I watched the film Virtuosity, I was pleasantly surprised. Pretty good film, although a little phony in spots. The soundtrack during the film sounded incredible and I thought I just had to own it. Well, I guess I didn't need to after all. Yes, there are a few great songs on the CD, and I'm glad I bought it, but it sure wasn't the "must have" I thought it was. I wouldn't recommend spending a whole lot on this CD, but if you can spare a few dollars, it is worth it for the few great songs on it."
