Product Description

Down To Earth ~ Down To Earth

Amazon.ca

Chris Rock may get the laughs onscreen, but Down to Earth's musical directors are quick to make sure that the music is no laughing matter. Tracks incorporate '70s soul influences (Ruff Endz learned Stevie Wonder well) through modern rap and R&B. Several top-shelf names (Snoop Dogg, Lauryn Hill) add established tunes to the proceedings; 1993's "Gin and Juice" remains an ominous example of West Coast hip-hop's climb to fame with seductive singalongs accompanying Dr. Dre's lo-slung G-funk. There's also plenty more to explore. Sticky Fingaz, featuring Eminem, set down pounding rhythmic trills to underscore "What If I Was White." Monica and Kelly Rowland (of Destiny's Child) serve up orchestrated romantic pop--a genre that lapses into lifeless parody whenever the grooves sag and/or the singer is too indistinct to rise above the occasion (3LW's "Never Let Go"). Random missteps aside, Down to Earth serves up a dance party for those who prefer to take it slow. --Rob O'Connor

Every year there are a handful of soundtrack albums that drop that hit the gold and platinum marks, and feature songs by the hottest and most respected artists of the moment. The soundtrack to the new Chris Rock film 'Down to Earth' is the first such for this year. Just look on the CD's back cover and you will see an array of artists that have seen success recently and even some older songs by still-hot artists of today just to keep things interesting. Monica is back on deck with her hit single 'Just Another Girl' still holding her own in spite of the recent personal troubles she's been having, Ginuwine kicks an uptempo groove with 'Can You Tell It's Me', a little different from what he's best known for, but it's a definite head-nodder for cruising. It's true what the reviewer Deldrick below says, that the Jill Scott and Eric Roberson song 'One Time' will definitely be the first feel-good jam for the coming spring, it's just got a vibe that will just put a big ol' smile on your face and make you want to be in breezy weather and sunshine. Ruff Endz, The Roots with Amel Larrieux, Jagged Edge and Kelly Rowland all turn in pretty good efforts. There are also two classic tracks as added bonuses on the CD. First one is the classic head-nodding laid-back West Coast G-Funk of Snoop Doggy Dogg's 'Gin and Juice', that brought back memories for me from my junior high days. Next up is Lauryn Hill's 'Everything is Everything', one'a the biggest hits from her debut Grammy-award-winning CD, definitely a great closing track. There are a couple'a times you might want to hit the fast forward button on your CD player, but for the most part you can put this on and just let it play. I mean it's nothing REAL special or anything (why you think I only gave it three stars), but is' worth checkin' out. It's got a cool, breezy, laid-back vibe that has me wishing springtime would hurry up and get here.

After a very good year for movie soundtracks in 2000 with the likes Love And Basketball, Nutty Professor II, Romeo Must Die etc.. 2001 comes in roaring with the soundtrack to Down To Earth with a very impressive line up Ginuwine, The Roots, Jill Scott, Monica, Jagged Edge.. The Soundtrack gets jumpin with the first single from Monica Just Another Girl, a very good song to start 2001 for her having people anticipate her next CD. Ginuwine comes in with the uptempo track Can You Tell It's Me this song is a little different from what you usually expect from Ginuwine but it still a good song.. Sticky Fingaz is on board with the very funny track What If I Was White . I agree with reviewer " James Highsmith" that it would even been better if Mr. Slim Shady Eminem would have drop a verse instead of just doing the hook..But, nevertheless it's one of the highlites on this disc ..
Best moments on this disc come on two of the best r&b tracks Ruff Endz sensational Someone To Love You and Jill Scott w/ newcomer Eric Roberson " One Time" both of these songs are very good.. Othernoteworthy tracks Jagged Edge " Dreamed You" as an added bonus on the CD you get the classic Snoop Dogg cut Gin And Juice and a big hit from Lauryn Hill a couple years ago Everything Is Everything.. All n All a pretty good soundtrack
Make it part of your collection.. You will be glad that you did

After a good year in the soundtrack department in the year 2000 with "Romeo Must Die", "Big Momma's House", "Love And Basketball", "Nutty Professor 2", etc., the "Down To Earth" soundtrack gets things started for the year 2001. The CD starts out with an impressive song which is by The Roots & Amel Larrieux, "Glitches". This song will have you anticipating the solo release from The Roots frontman Black Thought that should be out some time this year. Sticky Fingers also shows up with Detroit's finest, Eminem on a track called "What If I Was White". The track is hilarious but Sticky Fingers, formerly of Onyx, does a good job on the track. Things would have even been better if Eminem, who just does the hook, would have dropped a verse, but this is still a tight song. However, the best thing about this soundtrack is the r&b music on it. Miss Thang, Monica shows up with the first single off the soundtrack, "Just Another Girl". This is definitely a good way for Monica to come back out because this song is tight. Other tight r&b songs on this soundtrack are "One Time" with Jill Scott & Eric Roberson, "Someone To Love You" with Ruff Endz, and "Dreamed You" with Jagged Edge. Overall, this soundtrack is a good one. You even get "Gin & Juice" with Snoop Doggy Dogg and "Everything Is Everything" with Lauryn Hill

giving four only cuz the r&b and Hip hop songs, that i like a
lot.
i got disapointed cuz a lot of songs played in the movie
didnt make to this cd, so is this a really movie soundtrack or
whatever.....
There's a lot of good songs indeed , but if you watched the film
and wanted the movie's songs, stay away from this album
Musics wich have been cut off the movie soundtrack that actually
plays on the movie on the funny scenes
Cardigans - my favorite game(played when chris do a non stop phone calls)
Mystical - Shake that ass (played when his thought ex-wife disguised like a black womem and shaking her tries to recover the love from his ded husband "chris rock")
DMX - Ruff Riders (played at the diner when a black guy comes and
hit "crhis rock" in the face.)
