Compiled by the Dust Brothers and released on their NICKLEbag Records, the soundtrack to Trey Parker's Orgazmo is as eclectic as the Brothers' approach to sampling and complements the movie's tongue-in-cheek premise. Orgazmo unleashes on the musical world the debut effort by DVDA, a front for Trey Parker and Matt Stone, who seem to have secured an enthusiastic Tom Jones impersonator backed by your average local hair-metal revival band for their "Now You're a Man," because that is precisely what it sounds like. In that vein, the Dust Brothers are also able to bring out relatively lighthearted streaks in both KRS-One ("Check It Out"), and, even more amazingly so, Atari Teenage Riot. While you can't actually call "Sex Law Penetration" a lighthearted or laidback song, it is considerably slower than your average ATR fare, and is frequently interrupted by scratching, snippets of dialogue and samples of everything from disco to electrofunk. The Brothers, themselves, check in with their own "Try Your Luck," a sample fest of funkadelic beats, greasy, soul jazz organ, and cheesy horns. Hip-hop crew Dilated Peoples, the Crystal Method and April March also contribute some solid cuts. Probably for commercial purposes, "C.R.E.A.M.," off the first Wu-Tang Clan album, and Wreckx 'N' Effect's "Rump Shaker" still tasteless and as great as ever, are also included. The real gem on the album, though, is by COGASM, a side project from Robert Smith and Jason Cooper, of the Cure, and Reeves Gabrels, formerly of Tin Machine. Their effort, "A Sign from God," mixed by the Dust Brothers, combines tribal, dancy rhythms with some scratching for an uncharacteristically (for Smith) sprightly song. Overall, Orgazmo is a serviceable soundtrack, varied and fun, but only the COGASM cut truly scintillates.
