Unlike all the other Hollywood cyberthrillers, Strange Days gets a fabulous original soundtrack loaded with intense, angular tunes that are strictly future tense. The sensational “Selling Jesus” by U.K. newcomers Skunk Anansie kicks things off with a roar, actress Juliette Lewis does a fine job with P.J. Harvey’s “Hardly Wait,” and there’s strong material from Tricky, Lords of Acid, Lori Carson, and Prong with Ray Manzarek (doing The Doors’ “Strange Days”). Deep Forest’s “Coral Lounge” has more energy than any four tunes on its latest album combined, and that group’s collaboration with Peter Gabriel (“While the Earth Sleeps”) is a high-energy stormer. –Jeff Bateman
