3 stars One thing we must understand when rating or reviewing a soundtrack album, is that the music is meant to provide atmoshere behind whatever visuals are on the screen. If the music commands too much attention, then it is not doing what it was intended for.

The music on this album is the soundtrack to the Discovery Channel series, "The Hunters". And as such, it is meant to provide a mood of tension. It does that quite well. The rhythms, mostly tribal sounding, are the main driving theme of all of the tracks. The Residents' odd tunings and chord structures provide a hefty helping of eeriness and more tension.

But overall, because this is background music for a series, the music never breaks away and takes charge. So because of that, it can only rate three stars.

Try putting it on at a dinner party. I dare you.
