The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" Soundtrack Reviewed

Safe And Sound





























This makes me miss the good ol’ days when we used to get together and trash the Twilight Soundtracks, now the series is over till we get to the prequels of course (inevitable right, though I wish they’d hurry up with the Harry Potters), but till then here is The Hunger Games, another teen maelstrom of discontent and death and slaughter and more… another crappy soundtrack album.

HG 2 is called, thickskulled enough, Catching Fire and it should be visually exciting and mentally brain dead and the soundtrack is so downcast you’d think Cat hadn’t actually won in one.

But why insult the movie when we can insult the songs?

1. Atlas – Coldplay – With, what,  five albums of varying degrees of terrible to choose from,  Coldplay have succeeded in writing the worst song of their career, an anti-melodic, U2 when they really miss wall of brrrr at their worst disaster. Terrible – D

2. Silhouettes – Of Monsters And Men – Man this stinks, at least their album, boring or otherwise, hit the melody button from time to time – D

3.Elastic Heart – Sia, Diplo, The weeknd – Let’s be clear, this is the Weeknd’s fault, he sits on the melody and Sia can’t escape. As for Diplo, shouldn’t he have made the beats a lot meatier? – C

4. Lean – The National – I like the National fine,  gave em a pretty good review for the Barclay gig earlier this year. This has no redeeming qualities, another dreary mess – D+

6. We Remain – Christina Aguilara – At least she isn’t over singing, you see Christina is so over earnest, the restraint necessary for HG track makes her sound, you know, normal  – C+

7. Devil May Cry – The Weeknd –  Awful body dead ballad – D+

8. Who we Are – Imagine Dragons – Jesus, adding beats to an HG piece of darkness makes it lousy plus beats – D+

9. Everybody Wants to Rule The World – Lorde – She had “Swingin Party”, why bother with this hit job on Tears For Fears only hit? – C-

10. Gale Song – The Lumineers – The fucking Lumineers? Are you joking me? Where’s Mumford And Sons when you need em? Hell where’s Laura Marling?? WHERE”S LINDA THOMPSON???? The amateurs who put this together should be fired– D-

11. Mirror – Ellie Gouldling – Not terrible dance track, a sort of pretty fairy tale pop dance track – B-

12. Capitol Letter – Patti Smith – Man am I over Patti – C

13. Shooting Arrows At The Sky – Santigold – man, they can make Santigold sound boring. Second tier all the way though the break is pretty enough – C

14. Place For us – Mikko Ekko – Not folkie plus beats – B-

15. Lights – Phantogram – Not bad at all big break song for the electro pop duo – B+

16. Angel On fire – Anthony And The Johnsons – A wonderful, wonderful voice true, but the songs??? – C+
