This soundtrack album and the actual soundtrack of the video game do not contain the same collections of music. CoLD SToRAGE supplied two tracks ("Canada", "Body In Motion") for the game, the Chemical Brothers produced "Dust Up Beats", Fluke created a different "Atom Bomb" Mix than the one featured on this release called "Atom Bomb (Straight Six Instrumental)" and Future Sound of London, supplied "Landmass", none of which were included on the soundtrack album. Conversely, Photek's "Titan", the Chemical Brothers' "Leave Home", and the tracks by Daft Punk, Source Direct, Orbital, and Leftfield did not appear in the game itself.

I was really disappointed with this game when it was released. The original soundtrack and gameplay were a lot better. The gameplay featured a lot more collisions, wrecks and "combat", and the soundtrack featured a lot of "big names" at the time which I didn't like (the kind of names that gave me a bad impression of electronic music in the first place). I prefer the trippy trance music and pure racing of the original vs. the trendy and NASCAR-like sequel. I don't know why anyone would actually spend money on this.

Whoah. What a memorylane this soundtrack has become. This compilation catches perfectly the exciting atmosphere from 1996 and in the same time this release contains few of my favorite tracks from certain producers. First there's "Loops Of Fury" - a fearsome and hard banging track from The Chemical Brothers, very futuristic drum and bass work "Petrol" from Orbital (which btw. still sounds awesome today) and very different sounding version of "Atom Bomb" which you won't find on any singles. Almost like a slower alpha version which was mistakenly leaked for this soundtrack. I still prefer mix 1, 2 or 3 from the singles but this is still a good tune and shows how well Fluke can twist and turn their tracks on different type of angle. And then there's Photek. This soundtrack was my first touch with this drum and bass producer and back in 1996 i was mindblown away with his unusual sound. Alienlike atmosphere and intelligent drum programming which still kicks massive ass in today standards? Come here and listen yourself. Both included tracks are one of the best works from mr. Parkes and these two tracks also serves as timeless evidence why he is one the top dogs in drum and bass scene. What else? FSOL's classic "We Have Explosive", Prodigy's "Firestarter" - although it's just an instrumental version, one of my favorite reworked Underworld track "Tin There" and even Daft Punk's house work "Musique" fits perfectly on this techno-big beat-drum and bass landslide to your ears. After 10 years, this soundtrack is a testament for 90's electronica which holds time perfectly.
