The Animatrix: The Album (2003)


There are a few extremely nice, balmy hits of diversity present here, which is fitting given the source material. Though, a number of tracks would have benefited from a more strict editorial hand, sticking around long past their welcome as they do. This is ironic considering the appalling brevity of some of the cues elsewhere on these soundtracks. The elephants in the room are ‘Red Pill, Blue Pill’ and ‘The Real.’ Were they serious with these? I’m aware of the technique of sampling audio but when EVERY Game Grumps remix I’ve ever heard is better than these, something is horribly wrong.

Songs of Note: Blind Tiger; Under the Gun

2 Sultry Shuffle-beats out of 5

I used to listen to this album A LOT.

You picked my two favorites as the SoN.
...and you also pointed out my two least favorites tracks as well.
We should fap.

I don't have the album anymore, and don't have much desire to find it again, so I can't tell you how'd I feel about it nowadays.

By memory, I'd give it the same score.

Let the fapping commence.

I've been familiar with the music for aeons but finally listening to it as an album was jarring. I even had to ask Doc about those tracks :laugh:
