Description

Suicide Squad, the DC property where the bad guys are the actual heroes, cries out for an appropriately aggressive accompanying soundtrack, which is precisely what Suicide Squad: The Album delivers. Sometimes the tempo slows and at times the murk lifts for a bit of lightness -- by the time {|War|}'s Slippin' into Darkness, one of two oldies here, arrives it's a blessed, breezy relief -- but the overall feel of Suicide Squad: The Album is one of dank industrial gloom: this music is meant to live in the shadows. Often, the music celebrates darkness. {|Lil Wayne|}, {|Wiz Khalifa|}, and {|Imagine Dragons|} admit they're a Sucker for Pain, {|Kehlani|} lusts for a Gangsta, and the whole shebang starts with {|Skrillex|} & {|Rick Ross|} creating an unholy racket in Purple Lamborghini. Despite the presence of {|Twenty One Pilots|}, possibly the most popular rock band in 2016, Suicide Squad: The Album feels like a throwback, a salute to Y2K rap-rock and {|Todd McFarlane|} figures anchored by {|Eminem|}'s Without Me. It's an odd bit of cognitive dissonance that isn't without its moments: {|Dan Auerbach|}, {|Mark Ronson|}, and {|Action Bronson|} conjure some spooky soul and there's an elegance underpinning {|Grace|}'s You Don't Own Me that recalls vintage {|Portishead|}. All the same, the record's heart is in manicured chaos, served up with gloss and volume. [Suicide Squad was also released on LP.]
