"Saw 3D: Music Inspired by the Motion Picture" (Red Ink; 2010)
Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton
The "Saw 3D" soundtrack is pretty solid all the way through. It's a collection of mostly decent tracks by all the bands listed below. The only thing that's kind of weird is that (you should excuse the pun) it doesn't fit together like a jigsaw puzzle. Some of the songs are modern hard rock, some modern metal, some are more hardcore metal, a little heavier and nastier. But it's just not modern metal versus hardcore, there's also a third thing, and that's like Rave-type music. It's a weird juxtaposition that makes the whole album seem uneven.
Still, if you're a fan of most the bands contained herein, especially Hinder, Saving Abel, Saliva and Dir En Grey (all of whom contribute exclusive tracks) you'll find plenty to like here.
1. Never - Saving Abel
2. Condemned - Dead By Sunrise
3. Waking Up The Devil - Hinder
4. Goliath - Karnivool
5. Promises - Nitzer Ebb
6. Love Is Dead - Kopek
7. Badass - Saliva
8. The World Belongs To Me - My Darkest Days
9. Turn It On - Default
10. Fire Fly - I-Exist
11. What Goes Round Comes Around - Boom Boom Satellites
12. Scream - Adelitas Way
13. Hoodoo Woman - Krokus
14. This Is Heavy Metal - Lordi
15. Ram The Crush - Wagdug Futuristic Unity

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
