Picks and Pans Review: Spawn—the Album
Intermingling disparate musical genres is not not a new idea. In 1993 rap and grunge bonded on the Judgment Night soundtrack; then the worlds of country and R&B collided on the Rhythm, Country & Blues album. Now modern rock and electronica have united on the soundtrack for the comic-strip flick Spawn. The potentially cacophonous match works because the genres complement each other rather than clash and burn. The hard-rocking likes of Metallica and Henry Rollins bring musical muscle to their proceedings, while their respective techno collaborators, DJ Spooky and Goldie, provide fierce backbeat grooves. The satanic rituals of Marilyn Manson and the sleazy trip-hop ambience of Sneaker Pimps may be no match made in heaven, but it's one hell of an inspired union. (Immortal/Epic)
