The music that accompanies Blade Trinity is not going to appeal that much to those who enjoy orchestrated scores. However, if you enjoyed the pumping soundtrack that was used for The Matrix, then you'll probably also enjoy this album. In fact, the Black Lab's This Blood sounds like it would have fitted in nicely in the action sequences of The Matrix, as does Crystal Method's Weapons of Mad Distortion.

For me, Ramin Djawadi's Blade's Back track was the most satisfying. I also loved the way that this echoes the main theme of Old Dirty Bastard's Thirsty track. Djawadi's offering is the closest we get to a traditional orchestrated score. Sadly it only last for just over four minutes and I think this soundtrack would have benefited greatly from more of his music.

What it does it does well, it's just that this is the sort of soundtrack I always think sounds better when it is accompanying a movie, rather than a stand alone album.
