Product Description

Product Description

Rush Hour ~ Rush Hour 2


Rush Hour 2's mixed bag of pre-fab sounds seems more like a corporate merger than an artistic effort. The concept: raid Def Jam's stable of battle-scarred veterans (LL, Scarface) and next-ups (Musiq, Christina Milian), add appearances by some genuinely hot names (Snoop, Jill Scott), throw in a couple of outside-the-genre celebrities (Japanese superstar Hikaru Utada) and--as Nate Dogg croons on "Paper Trippin'"--get to stackin' cheese. Frenzied production can't overcome the overall low-energy vibe. Ludacris's filthy-but-funny "Area Codes" is fairly catchy, as is Meth's Biggie-referenced "Party & Bulls***". Macy Gray helps turn a Slick Rick classic into an interesting big band lullaby, while Jill Scott and Jazz's "Love Again" is little more than a post-modern Roberta Flack/Donny Hathaway impersonation. LL's "Crazy Girl" is, hands-down, the worst song he's ever done. But here's the good news: Keith Murray's still the most beautiful thing. Even Rockwilder's synth-based beat can't take the edge off of the Def Squadian's musical re-entry. Welcome back, Keith. --Rebecca Levine

4.0 out of 5 stars Hikki! Well, read me if you like Hikki... Feb. 24 2002
Format:Audio CD
Yes, Hikaru Utada graces this album, and this will be the only basis of this review, unless you want me to give a negative score and read an 8 page essay on why I don't like most of the rest...
We now interrupt this review for a News Story...
Hikki, or rather the name she likes better in the America biz, Hikaru Utada, has signed a contract with Island Def Jam, a division of Universal Music Group. According to Japanese news sources, Hikaru will apparently record an album and it will be released nationwide.
Now back to the review...
Anyways, Hikaru Utada becomes the single Asian on this album and sings in English. Unfortunately, this song isn't quite as good as her Japanese works or even her rendition of "Fly Me To The Moon", which was featured on the "Wait & See ~Risk~" single. Her vocals seem faded and behind the music/rapping/background vocals unlike most of her Japanese work. Her vocals also seem weak, unassertive and uninspired as well. As far as I can tell, she didn't write the song either. Overall, this isn't one of the centerpieces of Hikaru's works and this album is not an essential buy for the Hikki fan. I, personally, can only hope that she follows her own path in her music writing, since her abilities are much better than it has been illustrated in this song...

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth ... Sept. 24 2001
By raboof
Format:Audio CD
This is one soundtrack worth having. Let's start at the top and move down.

Ludacris - This song, though admittedly ..., is definitely catchy. It's simplistic and funny, and that's really where its strengths lie.

Montell Jordan - Jordan's created another danceable joint. It's not his best, but its uptempo beats keep the CD banging. He's got the voice that makes the ladies swoon. If you've got a hot date, put this track at the front of the tape to set the sexy mood for the rest of the night.

Meth/T.R. - The original rumpshaker and Meth get together to pop off gibberish about party M.C.ing. This is one of the hottest tracks on the album and is definitely able to get a party jumping. Yo TR, what's that ish you on?

Kandice Love - A throwback to the golden age of R&B, this song is about getting yourself together and telling that bad bad man "NO"! Very cool song. Sing along and you'll find yourself doing the Ricki Lake "Talk to the hand" maneuver.

Keith Murray - The best song on the album. You've got three and a half minutes of blindingly fast lyrics blasting out of this M.C. BTW, whatever happened to "Word is bond"?

Jazz - Jill Scott is off the hook. What else can be said about this song? The only snag in this lovely tapestry is the extraneous guitar noise. A little less of that and this might have been one of the best songs on the CD.

Musiq/Redman - As much as I'm a big fan of Redman, this track was not one of his best. The singing of Musiq is mediocre and Redman's rhymes are not up to snuff. With other stellar tracks available, this one gets drowned out.

LL Cool J - The man's been around for years and, unlike other old school rappers, he still keeps coming with freshness.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Knyte Opinion... Sept. 13 2001
By Knyte
Format:Audio CD
Forget the haters who say this album stinks (especially if you like R&B music) because on the R&B tip, this album shines. "Love Again" featuring Jazz (from Dru Hill) and the amazing Jill Scott is a clear cut winner, just like Case's "Missing You" was from the Nutty Professor 2 Soundtrack. Other standouts include the rock track, "Mercedes Benz" by Say Yes. "Mercedes Benz" is a beautiful example of creativity, and the art of coming with a different style...I've been waiting for a soul/rock group for a while, and I think we may finally have one in Say Yes...
But hands down, the strongest track on this album is "I'm Sorry" by 3rd Storee, and if this song does not become a hit, I think I'll throw away my pen, and give on up my quest to become a full-time music critic, because I believe in this song very much. Vocally, 3rd Storee sounds like a mixture between Dru Hill and Boyz II Men, and the song is so plush. Check this one out folks, for real.
On the hip hop side, I think I'll get a little serious...Personally, I feel that hip hop music is quickly going the way of Rock'n'Roll, in that while it was pioneered by primarily African-Americans, as an art form it no longer has to acknowledge the Black experience to be considered authentic. 15 years ago during the beginning of the "Golden Era" of hip hop, I think things were a lot different...
Although "Area Codes" has become a hit, and I very much enjoyed Ludacris' "Southern Hospitality", I very much dislike this song for its blatant disrespect of women...and when it comes to hip hop, it ain't 'suburban' (code word) women that most suburban hip hop fans are laughing at.

Oh my god, I cannot express how [bad] this album is. Almost EVERY song on this album is HORRIBLE.
Here's a basic breakdown:
Hello, LL what the [heck] were you thinking? That song is embarrassing. Lovher? Check out this lyric: "He's thuggin' but I love him (she loves him)." WHAT? That is just embarrassing!
And just because Dru Hill put together some ... fake group featuring Jill Scott, must they be listed in the song title??? And how did Teddy Riley and Gerald Levert get down with this mess? ....
The Macy Gray version of "Hey Young World" is interesting, stictly from a novelty point of view, so I guess it's good. I guess. But I'm not sure. And that "Mercedes Benz"??? Why? Why? Why??? It's like a remake of Lenny Kravitz's remake of "American Woman" but yet it's like Prince's "Hot Thing". Mostly it's corny.
Ah, whatever man. At least we get to hear Snoop, Nate Dogg and Keith Murray lay down a little sumpin' sumpin', even though they are saddled with junk-bond beats (except for Paper Trippin', but in that case it's the song concept that's tired).
Albums like this MAKE ME MAD!!!!!
