Synopsis

Amazon.com
The track listing reads like a who's who of the nu-metal genre, with brand-new songs from chart toppers including Godsmack, Creed, and Nickelback. Especially strong are System of a Down's orchestrated-meets-intense "Streamline," Sevendust's fervent and unique "Corrected," and Nickelback's raucous, edgy, raw rocker "Yanking Out My Heart," while Creed's typically musically morose five-minute ballad "To Whom It May Concern" will certainly delight fans. New band 12 Stones show promise with their straightahead, guitar-heavy "My Life," while Flaw's layered, soaring, and mesmerizing "Only the Strong" sounds hit-bound, as does Injected's vibrant "Burn It Black." As with Godsmack, Mushroomhead's contribution was penned specially for the movie, the suitably "soundtracky" audio track "turned down" to suit the onscreen action. If the flick--the third of the Mummy series--fades from memory quickly, its musical accompaniment is well equipped to stand the test of time. --Katherine Turman

A Must Have Soundtrack!
R. Stott | 04/14/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This soundtrack is probally one of the best out there. The mixture of bands is amazing. The only thing that it is really missing is either Korn or Adema to wrap it all up. There really is not a track on here that should not be there. Here's a quick breakdown of the songs.1. Godsmack - I Stand Alone - Really needs no explanation, huge radio hit and it's Godsmack (Need I say more?) Probally the third best on the CD.5/52. P.O.D. - Set It Off (Tweaker Remix) - Not as good as the original song, but still a very good song by itself. 4/53. Drowning Pool - Break You - Very well written song, probally better then Drowning Pool's other singles. The second best song on the CD. 5/54. System Of A Down - Streamline - I was completly blown away by how well written this song was. Not the typical System Of A Down, but still very good. 5/55. Creed - to Whom It May Concern - In my opinion the weakest song on the whole soundtrack. It lacks the intensity of the other songs. Although I'm not a big Creed fan it still was not a bad song. 4/56. Nickelback - Yanking Out My Heart - Another great song by Nickelback, it shows the heavier side of the band. Can get a little repetitive though. 4/57. Hoobastank - Losing My Grip - A big surprise for me, Hoobstank has written a very good song, excellent lyrics and very good guitar backrounds bring this song together. 5/58. Flaw - Only The Strong - A very powerful song the guitar and lyric combination is incredible, mesmerizing and very catchy. Although it isn't as good as "Payback" it is an excellent song by itself. I can't even count the number of times that I've listened to this song. 5/59. Rob Zombie feat. Ozzy Osbourne - Ironhead - I was most unsure about this track when I first got the CD. But after listening to it once I fell in love with it. Tied for second best on the album. 5/510. 12 Stones - My Life - An extremely talented new band, I can't wait for their first CD to come out. 5/511. Mushroomhead - Along The Way - The Cleveland band that made it big this past year. I've followed them for a little while and always loved their music. This song is no different, the lyrics blend with the guitar perfectly. And for those of you who don't like the singing in this song, well, all I can say is, you are not a true Metal fan. 5/512. Lifer - Breathless - A band who I had never heard of, but was pretty impressed with. They came out pretty well on this album. 4/513. Sevendust - Corrected - Another great Sevendust song. Intense and well written, this is another highlight of the album. In my opinion this is the best song on the CD. 5/514. Injected - Burn It Black - A great song by Injected. Intense and catchy at the same time. 4/515. Breaking Point - 27 - Kinda out of place with its "punky" guitar, but still a good song. 4/516. Coal Chamber - Glow - A haunting song with beautifuly done lyrics and guitars. Another gem of a song on this CD. 5/5All in all there are no weak points in the CD and I would have to say it is the best soundtrack released this year."
Really good compilation

"...The soundtrack is really good. There is not a bad song on there. Here is my opinion of each song:
1. Godsmack - Already a big radio hit. It is one of the best on the disc (5/5).
2. P.O.D. - I hate this band, but this is a decent song. I can actually tolerate it. INFINITE PRAISES TO TWEAKER on the mix. (4/5)
3. Drowning Pool - This song could be a big radio hit if released. I think it is better than any of their three singles. (5/5)
4. System Of A Down - A new song that I think should have made their "Toxicity" album. I really love the transitions from fast to slow in the song. Again, it could be a big hit. (5/5)
5. Creed - A previously import only song. This makes for the worst song on the disc. I would have kept it off...(3/5)
6. Nickelback - Too classic southern rock for me. Canadian hicks still make a decent song here. (3/5)
7. Hoobastank - Should have made the album. This is a really good song. (5/5)
8. Flaw - A non-original song. There are better on Flaw's album, but this is still a good song. I recommend "Through The Eyes" by Flaw if you like this song. (4/5)
9. Rob Zombie / Ozzy - Look at the artists: need I say more? The song kicks a$$. (5/5)
10. 12 Stones - New band. This band really impressed me with their sheer talent. They sound vaguely like Creed, but much better. A very good guitar solo to boot. 2nd best song on the disc. (5/5)
11. Mushroomhead - Written specifically for the movie, my guess is that it will be the third single from the disc (Lifer is going to hit the radio soon). I really love this song. I recommend the Mushroomhead disc "XX". (5/5)
12. Lifer - They sound good, but I don't like the singer. (4/5)
13. Sevendust - Another very good song. A cool intro. Hard and melodic at the same time. The strings in the chorus add a whold new dimension to the song. (5/5)
14. Injected - Decent song, but their single "Faithless" is better (not by much, though). There is a good solo in there, though. (4/5)
15. Breaking Point - This is a very good song as well. The singer sounds weird, like George Michael. The song sounds pretty good, though. (4/5)
16. Coal Chamber - What a way to end this! The singer sounds cool. The song reminds me of Fear Factory. (5/5)
All in all, BUY THIS DISC. IT IS WORTH THE MONEY."
