THE MATRIX was nominated for the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Soundtrack Album. "Bad Blood" was nominated for the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance. The futuristic sci-fi/action flick THE MATRIX features Keanu Reeves as the potential savior of the human race. Whatever one's feelings about this questionable casting decision, the film's soundtrack is an arresting collection that combines industrial with electronica-derived styles and a touch of good old hard rock. Ministry and Marilyn Manson represent the industrial end of the spectrum, while Propellerheads, Prodigy and Rammstein contribute electronic-based, beat-driven tunes that accentuate the film's future shock aspect. Rage Against the Machine closes things out with a characteristically driving rocker, "Wake Up," providing a cataclysmic ending to a soundtrack full of end-of-the-century weltschmerz.

Pros: Some really kickin' songs     Cons: Some really not kickin' songs     The Bottom Line: Boy am I late coming in with this review. Either way, an old soundtrack does not mean it's dead, boring, or out of style.     My older sister bought this CD first and somehow I never got around to buying it or burning it myself so it’s been quite some time since I’d listened to this CD. I realized recently that *gasp!* I’d reviewed the …
