The Transporter, the movie, was a Top 5 box office action smash. In the sequel, Jason Statham returns in his signature role as ex-Special Forces operative Frank Martin, aka The Transporter. Now "retired" in Miami, Frank makes a living as a driver for a wealthy family, including their young son, with whom he has unexpectedly bonded. But when the boy is abducted you just know Frank is going to take action. He uses all of his special skills to bring the boy to safety and discover the kidnapper's master plan.

Musically, the soundtrack to Transporter 2 features just the sort of driving music you'd expect to propel a top notch action flick. First up to kick some ass is cast member Kate Nauta, who checks in with the funk rocking "Revolution." From the UK, the Servant first got attention in the U.S. via the much demanded instrumental for the Sin City movie trailer. That song, "Cells", was unavailable on the Sin City soundtrack and is present here in its vocal version. It combines a moody trip hop instrumental track with upbeat Oasis/Electric Light Orchestra type choruses and joins a second song by The Servant, "Body," on this cd. From France via Indonesia, beautiful songstress Anggun contributes "Saviour"--she's been an international music lovers favorite since her consistently superb 1998 cd, "Snow On The Sahara". Next it's off to the Isle of Skye, Scotland where electronic dance music wizard Mylo hails from. "Paris Four Hundred," from 2004's "Destroy Rock & Roll" release, showcases his diverse influences which range from Daft Punk and Prince to the Scissor Sisters. Refusing to stick to one basic style, the mid-20s Mylo was called "Scotland's answer to Royksopp" by England's "The Face" magazine. Perhaps the best known artist here is France's acclaimed "abstract hip hop" DJ Cam with "Voodoo Child Starring Afu Ra" remixed by Gangstarr's own DJ Premier. And Sin bring the almost mandatory industrial track with the appropriate "Painful".

Rounding out the TVT Records soundtrack are two bonus tracks from new artists, The Strays and The Cinematics. Tiny Dingwall, Scotland is the home to the Cinematics, who bring their Stephen Hague (Blur, New Order) produced big pop/rock sound on "Chase." The Strays came from Athens, London and Los Angeles to record the rocking "Life Support".

Muze PNote As far as redundant soundtracks filled with emo-driven blasts of distortion and electronic trickery go, TVT's collection of tracks both created for and inspired by Transporter 2 isn't too bad. French composer Alexandre Azaria's dutifully atmospheric score is peppered throughout, and it plays like a cross between The Matrix and a late-period Bond film, relying on both melodic orchestral cues and tense keyboard sampling to flesh out the atmosphere around Jason Statham's brooding special forces operative. Highlights include the Pink Floyd-meets-Kraftwerk pulse of Grand National's "Talk Amongst Yourselves," Indonesian pop goddess Anggun's sensual "Saviour," and the bedroom electronica of Mylo. ~ James Christopher Monger
