The album that accompanied "The Crow" captured the dark, industrial tone of that hit 1994 film and set a standard for soundtracks of a gothic nature. The musical selections for "Underworld" ace that test, and the question is not whether the album holds its own but whether the film will do the collection justice. The action/ adventure flick, due Sept. 19, is the tale of a romance between werewolf-hunting vampire Kate Beckinsale and wolfman Scott Speedman. This calls for fiery angst, sexy grooves and lots of soulful gloom, which is served by Skinny Puppy and the Damning Well, among others. David Bowie contributes the twisted music-box tune "Bring Me the Disco King (Loner Mix)." The much-missed Johnette Napolitano of Concrete Blonde offers "Suicide Note" with little more than her smokey vocals, and Lisa Germano does the same on "From a Shell." Perfect for welcoming the fall and all things Halloween.—CLT
