The Skip 5 Show #20: The Prodigy & Tom Morello – One Man Army
From the 1997 Spawn soundtrack, this is one of those rap-rock/electronic mash-ups. I could do without the car alarm effect throughout the intro and elsewhere. An oblique homage to Public Enemy? Not necessary here. The rest is a driving drum and bass beat with guitar wonks and a solo from Morello. He fits in to the sound, with his guitar wizardry, but I didn’t feel this was a keeper track. Probably because I never ever got my head around that whole Prodigy, Chemical Brothers-type sound. Too much repetition for me, but I know it was of a time so… this is a time capsule, I guess. Meh.
Oh, and if you’re wondering why I even own this soundtrack, the answer is: ROLLINS.
