Title - 'Crank: High Voltage' (Lakeshore Records)
Artist - Mike Patton

Imagining what the perfect soundtrack to 'Crank' would/should be like is the first step to appreciating this musical soundtrack. Violent, spasmodic, frenetic and at seas, the music should be as well, right? sure, and well, of course it is! Composer Mike Patton has thankfully scored one of the best atmospheric releases in relation to a feature film that I've heard in a long, long time.

With pockets of sounds that are creepy when they need to be, exciting and chaotic when expected - like when Chev is going to town on dudes who don't know what day it is - and downright funky ... in-between everything else! You can hear the authentic traditional strings in his Asian inspired tracks like "Massage Parlor," which is just stunning, and then you can hear his Korn meets Silent Hill crunchy beats-laden rock number for "The Hammer Drops."

This soundtrack will hurt your brain, but in the most delicious of manners. But, if you're not the kind of guy who's willing to see 'Crank 2' let alone listen to its musical seascape, then this'll most likely not be up your alley. For all us other human beings, ... this f**kin' rocks!
