The Matrix Reloaded: The Album is a 2003 soundtrack album from the 2003 film, The Matrix Reloaded. The two-disc album is unusual among soundtrack releases in that it includes separate discs for the film's songs and the score, whereas most films release the songs and the score as separate single-disc albums.

The album's lead single was "Sleeping Awake" by P.O.D. The song's lyrics and video refer to elements of the film.

Omitted cues[edit]

Don Davis wrote three cues which were ultimately unused in the final film. The first is an alternate of the "Burly Brawl theme", which lasts for 1:31. The second, "Multiple Replication", was used, but it was combined with a choir as well as composition by Juno Reactor. The third, "Chateau Swashbuckling" was almost completely omitted in favour of Rob Dougan's track, although the final few seconds were retained in the film. The following cue, "Double Trouble", which accompanies the scene where the Twins chase the Keymaker, Morpheus and Trinity through the Merovingian's chateau, was altered to feature the beat track from Oakenfold's "Dread Rock".

The track "Mona Lisa Overdrive" was used in 2004 by rhythmic gymnast Anna Bessonova of Ukraine for her clubs routine as well in 2008 by Eleni Andriola in her hoop routine.
