WWE: Wreckless Intent Review

by Dan Upton

.
I haven't actually watched any professional wrestling in the last, oh, 10 years, but I was wooed by the promise of new tracks from bands like Brand New Sin, Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall, and Motorhead. After all, with those 4 bands, the remaining 11 tracks have to be from equally good performers, right? Sadly, no, but the elaboration on that can wait; the worst of it is that the even the tracks from bands I usually enjoy aren't anything special.

In addition to the aforementioned bands, the CD has plenty of modern/hard rock tracks from bands like Saliva, Mercy Drive, Theory of a Deadman, and POD. The tracks from Saliva and Mercy Driver have heavy grooves, although Mercy Drive's "Burn In My Light" picks up to a catchy singalong chorus. Theory of a Deadman's "Deadly Game" sticks with their tried-and-true heavier-Nickelback sound, more of a throwback to the sound of their debut than their more recent release. POD's "Booyaka 619" is actually pretty ridiculous, uninteresting verse riff with nu metal rap and chorus consisting primarily of shouting "booyaka booyaka!" Whatever that is. Brand New Sin's "Crank It Up" is basically just a heavy blues tune, like if ZZ Top tuned down and slowed down.

The Shadows Fall and KSE tracks aren't bad, but both bands have done far better material. And as for Motorhead, well, I'm ashamed to admit I don't know many of their songs, but "King of Kings" is probably the best track on here.

While the rock portion of the disc is decent if not anything special, the rest of the tracks go downhill with rap and R&B from acts like Homebwoi, Desiree Jackson, Silkk The Shocker, Three 6 Mafia, and Kaballon. Kaballon's "Quien Soy Yo" has a fun Latin rhythm and would at least be enjoyable to dance to, but it's otherwise nothing I'd want to listen to on a regular basis, and the other rap tracks only have value in possibly irritating my downstairs neighbor with my subwoofer.

This disc might hold more value for you if you're a WWE fan and thus gain some enjoyment from hearing wrestler's theme songs. For the average listener though, this disc is mediocre at best. Something you might pick up from the bargain bin, but unless you're a completist and have to have every track ever recorded by one of these bands, there's plenty of better music to spend your money on.
