Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Producers include: Trent Reznor, Ron Goldberg, Hypoluxa, Hermes Pan, Count Ringworm.
  • Compilation producer: Trent Reznor.
  • Original score written by Trent Reznor. Samples include "Ted Just Admit It" (as performed by Jane's Addiction), "I Put A Spell On You" (as performed by Diamanda Galas), "Checkpoint Charlie" and "Violation Of Expectation" (as performed by Barry Adamson).
  • Tha Dogg Pound's "What Would U Do" was nominated for a 1996 Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group.
  • 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 devised...it'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.
