As with most movies like this, the soundtrack is much better. But is it actually a good album? Well, it's as good as any soundtrack can be and the fact that it has a gothic/industrial theme does lend to its consistency. Highlights include the ultra gothy Miranda Sex Garden with "Peep Show" and "Cut," the industrial death metal of Fear Factory and Godflesh on "Scumgrief" (its actually a remix by Front Line Assembly) and "Nihil." Other highlights Include "Surface Patterns" by Front line assembly and Trevor Jones' original musical score for the movie. Unfortunately KMFDM with "Go to Hell" falls short, (maybe it's En Esch's vocals), and Oedipussy really doesn't belong on this CD. Also, Die Warzau and Peace Love & Pitbulls' songs are nothing to write home about. So as you can see more than half of this 13-song CD is good and that's really something special when it comes to a soundtrack. 'Nuff said.
