Washington Post : Review of ’Original Soundtracks 1’

NEW RELEASES : POPBy Mark Jenkins

Passengers : "Original Soundtracks 1" (Island). Passengers is U2 plus Brian Eno but minus songcraft, pretending to bescoring various "imaginary movies" so that the vagueness of the resulting music becomes part of the concept.Continuing in the jet-setter mode that has made U2 so annoying in recent years, the "loose collective" enlists hip-hopperHowie B., Japanese singer Holi and Italian opera star Luciano Pavarotti for one track each. Adding the latter’s voice to"Miss Sarajevo" is a pretentious and musically ineffective notion, but the track is one of the few here that qualifies as anactual song, and even it meanders casually for more than five minutes. Most of the other compositions marry buzzing,chiming atmospherics and aimless funk in a manner that will be familiar to those who’ve heard other tossed-off Enocollaborations. "Don’t want to lose my shirt/ Don’t want to dig the dirt/ Don’t want you to get hurt," natters Bono in"Slug," a song that concludes, "Don’t want to be a slug," but "Soundtracks" is seldom anything more than high-tech slugmusic.
