Oliver Stone couldn't have made a better choice for the producer of NATURAL BORN KILLERS' soundtrack than Trent Reznor, alternative music's supermanipulator and Nine Inch Nails' frontman.
Reznor's use of dialogue and choice of songs perfectly cut through Stone's blatant generalizations about media over-saturation and its effects on society. The songs and their placement in the soundtrack offer a disturbing commentary on our culture's inability to separate the rush of sex from the rush of violence. By putting Patti Smith's raging "Rock N Roll Nigger" next to the sweet seduction of the Cowboy Junkies' "Sweet Jane," Reznor stabs at this confusion, and rubs our noses in it.
As a time capsule, the NATURAL BORN KILLERS soundtrack will remind listeners of an era of Dahmer Delicatessen jokes and "Free O.J. Simpson" t-shirts. The overwhelming elegance in Nine Inch Nails' "Born" seethes with equal parts pleasure and pain, and revels in the glory of alienation, declaring "I never was part of you."
As a soundtrack, Reznor's use of dialogue from the script is scarily on-target. Telling moments between characters convey as much as the songs. The NATURAL BORN KILLERS soundtrack is a brutal take on social commentary, and one of the most revealing soundtracks of the year.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (12/29/94-1/12/95, p.178) - "...Tarantino's...soundtracks could fill the playlist of some eerie radio station dreamed up by a program director with a yen for shock. For KILLERS, Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor is that programmer..."
Entertainment Weekly (9/23/94, p.69) - "...The resulting sound collage is surely one of the most ambitious soundtracks ever's a hypnotic white-noise soundtrack that's almost more disturbing than Stone's own work..." - Rating: A-
Q (7/01, p.91) - Included in Q's "50 Heaviest Albums of All Time".
Q (12/99, p.76) - Included in Q Magazine's "90 Best Albums Of The 1990s."
Q (12/94, p.141) - 5 Stars - Indispensable - "...[mirrors the film's] post-modern, cut-up barrage approach to atmospherics...relentlessly imaginative...[Trent] Reznor employing assorted sound effects and cross-fades to knit the whole shebang together..."
Mojo (Publisher) (6/02, p.68) - Included in Mojo's "100 Coolest Movie Soundtracks" - "...Reznor's cut-up score perfectly captures the film's slice'n'dice wonder..."
NME (Magazine) (12/24/94, p.23) - Ranked #3 in NME's list of the 10 best compilation albums of 1994.
