Elektra (2005) Retail CD
Elektra: The Album repeats the post-grunge sins of the Daredevil and Spider-Man soundtracks. It would have been nice if the film's musical choices accentuated or commented on its main character's mix of formidable fighting skills and emotional conflict. Instead, but for a lukewarm attempt at featuring female rockers, the collection serves mostly as a showcase for plodding modern rock yeomen and the Wind-Up Records roster. Strata's "Never There (She Stabs)" is an odd choice for a first single; its title reflects the glint of Elektra's sais, but otherwise it's leaden and unhappy. Entries from Fingermore… Eleven, Submersed, and 12 Stones don't fare much better. They vary in their use of trademark elements like chunky distortion, pleading choruses, or acoustic breakdowns. But the collective effect is to hear one long, loud, and rather unimaginative song. Elsewhere, Switchfoot and Taking Back Sunday get lost in layers of moody drama and echoing piano, with the latter's "Your Own Disaster" a close cousin to its placeholder entry on 2004's Spider-Man 2 soundtrack. Evanescence's Amy Lee has proven her ability to carry a piano ballad, and the previously unreleased "Breathe No More" is no exception. It softens Elektra a little, like a white curtain billowing in a cold stone room. And nods to the Donnas ("Everything Is Wrong") and a rising coed outfit from New York City called the Twenty-Twos (the fun Veruca Salt throwback "5 Years"), who give the set some kicky pizzazz. However, with only a faceless hard rock grind from Alter Bridge and two different hopefuls (Megan McCauley, Full Blown Rose) trying to channel that Evanescence mix of passion and rock power, Elektra: The Album never really makes its point.
