In the tough and morally ambiguous world of formula breaking
cop show The Shield, the line between good and bad
is crossed every day. This soundtrack represents an aggressive
and diverse mix of street music from this gritty TV series,
featuring songs from all four seasons of the show, and new
exclusive reworkings of the theme...
Shield: Music From the Streets is
a strange collection of in-your-face tracks that scream their
message at you. There are no beautifully stirring songs here;
nothing to sit back and relax to. In fact, after listening
to this album, you'll be so pumped up that you'll need to
go and work out to chill yourself out.
really going to have to be a dedicated follower of either
The Shield or metal/rap to really appreciate this album.
Hollywood's Theory of a Deadman is one of the better
(less ear smashing) inclusions, and The Black Maria's Betrayal
and Tantric's Breakdown are the only two tracks that
I felt had a wider appeal.
a Los Ninos's Brujeria starts even more annoyingly
than that bloody Crazy Frog ringtone and then descends
into chaos and if you strip the naff rapping out of Kelis
featuring Martika's Mafia, then that's pretty entertaining
the end of the day this represents a collection of tracks
which all sound too similar, from bands whose albums you would
never buy. While each song might accompany the TV show beautifully
(and they do!) as stand alone tracks they are a little too
flat. One for serious fans of the show only.
