- 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.
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 devised...it's a hypnotic white-noise soundtrack that's almost more disturbing than Stone's own work..." - Rating: A-
