The Matrix: Music from the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Limited Red & Black "Squiddy" Vinyl Edition) (2-LP Set) Limited to 420 copies Every decade or so a science fiction film comes along that captures the Zeitgeist and simultaneously casts a searchlight into the murk of what's to come. Such a film was The Matrix. Released in 1999 to a public already grappling with huge technological change and subject to Y2K hysteria whipped up by the media, The Matrix wove such au courant tropes as Japanese anim , Hong Kong martial arts films, cyperpunk sci-fi, and hacker hero worship into a tale of druggy paranoia whose vision of a grim future marked with universal surveillance and pathological interconnectedness actually looks less paranoid by the day. And its soundtrack was similarly forward-looking. Instead of offering the blues-based, heavy metal rock that might have populated the score had the movie been made a decade before, The Matrix tapped into the new, breakbeat electronic sounds making inroads into popular music. The result was a propulsive audio ride perfectly mated to the film's cinematographic "bullet time" innovations, a doom-laden, neck-snapping blend of stoner metal, hip hop and electronica. Now, Real Gone Music is proud to present the original soundtrack to The Matrix in a limited red and black "squiddy" vinyl edition. The 2-LP set comes in a gatefold package featuring stills from the original film production and is limited to 420 Morpheus says, this is your last chance!
