Madden 2007 Soundtrack Review
Here is a list of songs from Madden 2007. I haven't even played the game yet, because I've been taking a listen them all. Just go to "System Settings", then "Soundtracks" to hear for yourself. Some quick thoughts:
Al Fatz-"Came Down"
Kimmis will love this one. It has a real Nelly & the St. Lunatics vibe to it. This is a great tune.
Anti-Flag-"This Is the End (For You My Friend)"
Nice Doors reference in the title. Song is actually very "meh."
Atreyu-"Ex's and Oh's"
Really, I just like the title.
Oh yeah! OB will LOVE this one. I also love that three band members from Rage Against the Machine have a song on a video game.
Bishop Lamont feat Chevy Jones- "The Best"
The usual Madden hip-hop anthem. I'll hate this song by the end of the week.
Cartel-"Say Anything (Else)"
Again, great title. Lloyd Dobler would be proud. Also a great Emo tune. Abboud, you'll love this one.
Cord- "Go Either Way"
Solid rock tune ruined by an attempt to force a harder sound than it needs.
Damone-"Out Here All Night"
Wow. An actual female singing on a Madden soundtrack? Not a bad voice either, although the songs is bland.
Dashboard Confessional "Reason to Believe"
More Emo. The sound of modern punk. Guess it's too much to ask for a Rancid tune on here, eh?
Dynamite MC- "Bounce"
No Da Riffs doing NFL Films remixes?
Feezy 350- "Playa What"
Good to see Djay from "Hustle & Flow" was able to put out an album.
Haley Hunt feat. Goose and Reason-"Won't Stop Running."
This song will be on "Friday Night Lights" on NBC this season.
Less Than Jake-"A Still Life Franchise"
YES! Finally, some ska! Huh! Huh! Huh! Huh! Huh! Huh! Another GREAT title.
Love the hand-clap. This song will be a huge anthem about a year from now.
Omnisoul-"Not Giving Up"
Great tune. This will be a big hit, too. These guys liked Rage Against the Machine, that's for sure. The guitar riff screams, Tom Morello.
Riverboat Gamblers-"On Again Off Again."
Nice traditional punk sound. Did I just say that? My God, I'm old.
Driving bass line. You can definitely grind to this one.
The Panic Channel- "Teahouse of the Spirits"
This is Dave Navarro's new band. Also includes two other members from Janes Addiction. Probably already getting heavy rotation of modern rock radio.
This song rules. More cowbell!!! I can't get enough. If anything else they do is this good, they are going to be huge. Look for Seth Cohen to be wearing a t-shirt. Avi and Nate, make sure to check it out.
The Sleeping- "Don't Hold Back"
This song is huge already, but I'm stoked that it is one here. These guys rule. Robert Plant, eat your heart out.
