"I love it! It's playing in my computer's CD player as I write these words. Others have called it repetive. Well, it *is* techno, isn't it? Repetition of a theme, with new sounds and twists and beats injected, is what techno is all about, for me anyway. This one carries it off perfectly. It's gone around a few times already, and will go around a few more before I give it a break.One thing that the tracks on this CD carry off perfectly is the integration of vocals with the techno sound. While many techno artists seem to think that voices have to be distorted beyond recognition to fit in to techno, in this case the lyrics come through clearly. This is especially true with Franka Potente's contributions on the first track "Believe" which is worth buying the CD for just on its own.By the way, if you haven't seen the movie, I recommend it - it's now out on video."

"I am not going to lie and say this CD is for everyone. Some people simply cannot appreciate the repetitive nature of techno music. If you are a techno fan and you enjoyed the movie then this soundtrack is certainly worth buying. Many of the tracks are very powerful and make you want to get up and move. Franka Potente has a beautiful voice and her tone matches perfectly with the fast paced drums and bass. I really enjoy the way this soundtrack features all the music from the movie along with extra remixes. I felt like I got my moneys worth from this CD and highly recomend it."

"I recently saw the film Run Lola Run and thought it rocked -- and I came online and bought the CD the same day. But I didn't get my hopes up too much, because I've been dissapointed way too many times by movie soundtracks. Well, the CD came in the mail today and it is just too cool for words. The tracks are so rich with sound -- don't expect any thin generic techno beats here. I can't get myself to stop playing it! If you haven't seen the movie yet, go see it -- and then order this CD. The music pulses and drives you -- I've been trying to make a good running tape for a while now and if this music doesn't help me improve my time then I don't know what will."
THE BEST ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK EVER!

"This music is what makes you remember "Lola." I loved the movie "Run Lola Run" the first time I saw it, but it didn't occur to me to buy the soundtrack because, like many people, i just don't buy soundtracks. I finally bought it a year ago after hearing people rave about it and it was THE BEST CD PURCHASE I EVER MADE!! I know it's a cliche for music reviews, but it's true! I have listened to it constantly, and it's especially good for motivating you while jogging or running, understandably. I've bought three copies, two of which I've given away because it's awesome to share music as good as this. Tom Tykwer, who dreamed up the movie as well as the soundtrack, is a creative genius! The movie compliments the soundtrack (and vice versa) perfectly! Franka Potente, the star of the movie, lends her vocals to all but one track and there is a song, "Believe," sung by Potente, that is not in the actual movie but can also be found on the DVD, featured as a video. Parts of this soundtrack have been sampled for non-related trailers for some movies and TV shows (see the tracks, "Running Two" and "Casino"). This collection is absolutely essential for any fan of "Lola" or techno/electronica music."

"But I believe in fantasy if you just understood..."Wow. I first heard the music from this soundtrack when I downloaded a legendary Anime Music Video made for it's first track, Believe. The video was fantastic, but the song was what fueled it. Believe is an incredibly inspirational song about not giving up and believing in yourself, and I can't count how many times I've listened to it (the part at the end is just transcendant (you know, like when you're running so hard and so long that you don't even feel the pain anymore)). Later on I downloaded Music Videos to two of the other songs (Running Two and Running Two Remix). I enjoyed the videos and the music so much I decided that I had to own the soundtrack.From what I understand, only the first 7 tracks are actually from the movie. That's probably the only reason I could give this awesome soundtrack less than five stars. The first seven tracks are all great. Believe is awesome, the introduction is the music I used to listen to while getting ready for work every morning (the ultimate wake-up music), Running One gets the blood pumping, Running Two puts you into overdrive (and whenever I'm REALLY tired I hear the words echoing in my head "Never never never never letting go, never giving up, never saying no. Just go go never stop and never think, just do do do do the right thing"!), Running Three is the big finale, and Casino is a great drum piece sure to keep you moving. The other tracks are kind of hit and miss.Many of the remixes lack the polish of the music from the movie (and one even features a spine-rippling scream and breaking glass at it's start). I did enjoy the Supermarket Remix, the Running Two Remix, and the last track, Rock Me.Overall I consider this to be an essential purchase if you like German Techno, Techno in General, or this movie's music. It's worth buying for the first 7 tracks for sure. The rest is just extras."
