SAW III Soundtrack Review
by James Rodd
I'd like to caveat this review stating that I have always been a major fan of the pairing of Rock and Horror films. I fondly remember tongue in cheek horror films with rock soundtracks from my youth such as "Trick or Treat" and "Shocker", and probably most notably, Nightmare on Elm Street: Dream Warriors. So, with that in mind and Dokken's Dream Warriors refrain running through my head I delve into the SAW III Soundtrack.
The most notable thing about this soundtrack is that there are no "stand out" hits on it. There are some notable songs but none that jump out of your speakers and drop kick you in the head like some of the movie's I listed above. In my opinion it feels kind of rushed together and over produced. There are no songs that relate specifically to the movie, accept for a minor bit of original score composition.
Regardless of this some of the finer tracks are Blue October's "Drilled a Wire through my Cheek", All that Remains "This Calling", and Disturbed's "Guarded".
Overall, I'd give it a 3.5 out of 5 stars. Out of 20 songs, I'd say half of them are worth listening too. The other half, are repetitive, redundant and blatant rip off's of other more notable bands sounds like Helmet's "Monochrome" which sounded to me like a bad Alice in Chains rip off.
