The gimmick here is that on each track a hard rock act has been combined with a rap act: Sonic Youth and Cypress Hill, Living Colour and Run-D.M.C., and so on. The idea, as with Run-D.M.C.s duet with Aerosmith on “Walk This Way,” is to achieve musical synergy and commercial crossover, and at least the second goal was met when this album went gold while the movie it accompanied went into the dumper.
Living Colour and Run-D.M.C. meld well on “Me, Myself & My Microphone,” and Slayer and Ice-T make an angry thrash of “Disorder.” But in both cases, the rappers are familiar with the style — Ice-T has a metal band of his own in Body Count.

But, because the film was such a dog, the album pretty much sank without trace.
Most of the tracks on the CD lean pretty much toward the heavier metallic side of pairings, although there are several more mellow moments too. Its all very listenable though – a great example of musical experts from different genres coming together and actually making something new and viable.
Never mind the latest Tarantino soundtrack. If you want to hear REAL musical history from REALLY talented musicians this is the one you want.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Dogs Bollx,
Lets face it, the movie was pretty poor but the OST makes up for it big time. Although a dodgy idea, combining mostly hip-hop and metal bands for each track, its been pulled off incredibly well. I’m not a fan of some of the tracks, but the better ones I can listen to over and over again – Cypress Hill and Sonic Youth and especially De La Soul and Teenage Fan Club. I bought this album almost 10 years ago after hearing the Faith No More track and it still keeps finding its way into my CD player. Definitely one of the best, original movie soundtracks ever released. I wish there were more like it!
5.0 out of 5 stars Judgement Night,
The film might be a little cheesy, but the OST is loud and angry. With the best of the rap world teaming with the best of Metal and alternative this album Rocks. If you like ‘New Metal’ then listen the Daddy.
5.0 out of 5 stars Top Head Bangin- Gut Thumping, Power Pumping Music!,
What is there to say about this album, that its Ace- that it carries you away into the high octane power driven world that make up its cumalitive whole! From the absolutely brilliant title track, performed by Onyx and Biohazard classic words and verses emerge to power the album along. This is an album made up of excellent alliances of music. If you like your music raunchy, like it sexy, but need it full of energy and power, with tempered aggression! This is the album for you! If not already in your music collection what are you waiting for, BUY IT NOW!
