This really is a great soundtrack that does not have many, if ANY, weak tracks on it. However, as the other reviewers have noted, it is missing the Michael Jackson song "On the Line" that so beautifully opened the movie (which is the ONLY reason my rating is 4 out of 5 and not a perfect 5). Sounds like there were very few of us who weren't touched, grabbed or mesmerized by this "new" MJ track when we first heard it at the film's beginning. Well, I've since read that Mr. Jackson did write it specifically for this movie but requested it be left off the soundtrack. Hmmmmmm... At least we got the smooooth Earth Wind & Fire track "Cruisin'" featuring Phillip Bailey's signature falsetto voice! This is indeed a 'you-and-your-significant-other' mood-setting song if I've ever heard one. Also, the Neville Brother's "Over a Million Strong" has a sing-along chorus that sinks a hook deep into your Groove Spot and won't let go. Leave it to the Brothers, who are the Founding FATHERS of NOLA funk, to write the perfect song for this film.
Btw, the only other place I've found that MJ track, "On the Line" is on disc 4 of his "Ultimate Collection". Maybe he was just saving it for this 4cd/1 dvd collection....?
