      WWF - The Music Vol. 3

      Much of the music in this album is performed and recorded by Jim Johnston, so he can ready a rock rhythm as well as show a saxophone solo.

      Seems I've had to resort to the track-by-track review. My ratings are as follows:

      [*] - Nothing really catches the attention.
      [**] - Something grabs my attention.
      [***] - Gets me air-drumming, air-guitaring and singing along to the track.

      1. The Undertaker; 5. Kane; 7. Gangrel / The Brood
      The three dark themes are decent, but it feels as if they linger for too long. [**]

      2. Edge
      There's something somewhat strangely soothing about the female voice samples on echo and alternately panned left and right. The listener is kept on the edge by the instruments coming to life. [**]

      3. X-Pac
      Similar to the D-Generation X theme, this song gets in-your-face with some slap-bass. "Who's gonna kick your ass? X-PAC!" [***]

      4. Dude Love
      This could be a Bee Gees song, what with the falsetto voices (albeit without the harmonies), synth strings and disco funk guitar - funky! [**]

      6. The Rock
      This is not my favourite theme for The Rock. "Know your role and shut your mouth" - you'd wish the Rock did the latter because the limited lyrics become a bore, and it comes close to hitting rock bottom. [*]

      8. Ken Shamrock
      Rock instrumentation that has bells and not a guitar solo in sight. The alternating two-note piano parts are rather pants. [*]

      9. Oddities
      Not the greatest song and has only really a single beat through it. However, the humour does raise a smile and I love the alternating vocals in the chorus sections. [**]

      10. D-Generation X
      The start of the song has shades of 'Take The Power Back', of which, "break it down" - I wouldn't be surprised if Rage Against The Machine was the inspiration here. The guitar and bass riffs are cool. I like how the song is in-your-face and then screaming in the chorus, "D-GENERATION X!" [***]

      11. Sable
      Sparse guitar and then keyboard chords on decay over busier drum beat. This is the weakest theme on the album, but it's not as if Sable needed introducing back then! Best let your imagination run wild with the big cat roars and whipping sound effects when listening to this one. [*]

      12. New Age Outlaws
      The proceeding vocals after "Your ass better call somebody!" are almost lost in the mix before their entrance/exit, and they might have thought to turn up those bluesy guitar solos. The song gets a bit old after a while. [**]

      13. Val Venis
      Hello ladies! Sassy? Saucy? Sweet? The alto saxophone leading the line can get sickly before too long. And they seemed to skip on giving the song the closure it could do with so it feels anti-climatic. [**]

      14. Stone Cold Steve Austin
      Decent riffs and wah-wah guitar, though the constant glass breaking is not so shattering after a while. [**]

      Conclusion
      Even if none of these entrance themes last longer than four minutes, some felt as though they did on listening. For impact music, this is not a bad album.
