Various Artists - Brown Sugar Soundtrack (MCA, 2002)
I reviewed this album already but I just want to comment on the fact that my album also said "Copy-Protected CD". I put it in my computer, it started playing in a little program. But I closed that program, pressed "Record" on my Musicmatch program and the songs copied to my computer instantly. I played those tracks from the computer: no scratches, weird sounds, etc. I guess the now defunct MCA Records meant, "certain CD's are copy-protected", trying to get people not to copy from it, use it to share on KaZaA or Soulseek, or (heaven forbid) use certain tracks to make compilations out of. Nice try.
P.S. To answer another reviewer's question, D'Angelo's "Brown Sugar" isn't on this soundtrack because that song has to do with rolling trees. But there are other songs that should have been on this soundtrack that were actually featured in the movie like India.Arie's "Get It Together" and Blackalicious' "Nowhere Fast". That would have made this soundtrack better. -EJR
