Live's song on the TMR soundtrack   Friday, May 4, 2001 (7:35 p.m.) 

Obviously the person who reviewed the soundtrack for "The Mummy Returns" has no concept as to what good "rock" music is. Live is one the most durable and respected rock bands around today. Granted their track on the album is very commercial, but it still has a great feel to it. I think instead of bringing down the album, it's meant to attract a younger audience. Whereas the orchestra pieces are meant to attract an older audience. So, to the so called music expert who wrote this review, if want to pick on a modern rock band, write about Limp Bizkit or something. They deseve it!

Please, I hardly think "younger" consumers are going to buy an orchestral score for one song.

Considering the average age of visitors to this site, it is frankly ridiculous to suggest that "orchestra pieces are meant to attract an older audience."

I'm 17, does that count? Actually, there's a whole lot more orchestral-loving teens out there than you'd realize, but still not enough in my opinion .... and I really don't care much for Live anyway.

Well I have loved music from the movies ever since I was a little tiny guy.Even thru MY teen years it was a thrill.I wish more people would get into this great music.I don`t know what is wrong with it.The Live song on The Mummy Returns cd is ok.I really don`t know Live but the song is ok with ME.

I'm 19. I've loved orchestral music for quite some time. I collect film scores and have a decent collection (at least i consider it decent...it's forever growing though). I love "Live" they have GREAT music, i personally don't think the song belonged anywhere near this score though...or this movie. It's a fantasy movie about a mummy that takes place in the 30's....Rock music doesn't really fit well with that. However the song is still very good. I don't think it was used to attract a younger audience...and i definitely don't think the orchestral parts were used to attract an older audience. Are you saying that all young whippersnappers like myself listen to nothing but "rock music" and that all older people like you listen to classical? are you demeaning us youngin's?
By the way i'm a big fan of Limp Bizkit too so don't start bashing them either.
Jon

Oh REALLY. So what is the average age of the people visiting this site according to YOU then?

I am a big fan of Live too, and while that particular song wasn't their best it was certainly not terrible either. I've certainly heard worse songs posted on a soundtrack CD.

Believe it or not, unlike Mr. Nate Jackson, I appreciate both film music AND good 'contemporary' (for want of a better word) music.

Hey, If this Song would not have been in the score, I would never knew my favorite band! I love this song!! After the Score i bought the V album by Live and couldn't stop listening. Now, two (or three years) later I have all albums and went to their >European tour with Bon Jovi ( don't tell my - I was just there for Live! ) when they visited my state ( Thuringia/Germany).
Live is not that famous in Germany...unfortunately. Every time I'm talking about Live, the response is always: Which band do you like listening to live?
^-^ So, without the movie and the score, which was really great, I would have lost a lot. And in my oppinion the Song really goes well with the movie ( the text: forever may not be long enough - hey, Imothep loved Anck su anum all this years!the music: kind of arabic elements in there, why not? And why is there a problem because it's rock? It's not fitting the time?? Hey anyone tell me please why's there a mummy in the 30s!! ^-^ ) And common, It's in the end, not even in the movie! Who cares? Some people maybe never watched/or listened to the credits...
Have a nice day! Chisa
