Usage in the film[edit]

Despite the numerous songs contributed to the soundtrack, only four songs from the album are used in the film. "All That You Are" is played during the scene where Shia LaBeouf's character Sam Witwicky is at work, while "Iridescent" is constantly played during the film. "Iridescent", "Monster" and "Many of Horror" are used at the end credits.

Reception[edit]

Chad Grischow of IGN gave a favorable review of the album, saying the album has "few too many tracks here you likely have lurking elsewhere on your iPod and not enough new treats to wholly recommend" but assures the listener "will definitely find pieces here worth saving from the scrap heap."[2]
