Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost Song? Oct. 2 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have a question. In the movie there when ever Jackie Chan thinks Carter is dead and he is riding in his car there is a song playing. I was wondering what the name of that song was. E-mail me at gamzarme@aol.com . Anyones answer would be great!
Patrick Thomas
P.S. If you're wondering what the song's words are when it starts out it's:
"It seems like yesterday we used to rock the floor..."

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good: My girl Utada Hikaru iz OFF DA HOOK! Nov. 15 2002
Format:Audio CD
The Rush Hour 2 soundtrack is good. There are some real good songs on this album...and there are ones that don't even deserve to be heard. Songs such as "I'm Sorry", "No", "You Make Me Laugh", "Party And Bullsh*t" are all great. I can't help but nod my head to the beats and feel the music. But, like most CD's, It has it's downside. Tracks such as "How's It Gonna Be" and "Keep It Real" should not have made it onto the Album. Even "Area Codes" got played out.
But the one song that made me say "WOW!" was Utada Hikaru's "Blow My Whistle". This song is produced by The Neptunes and features Foxy Brown. Of course Foxy's raps are tight. But Hikaru's voice flows perfectly on this song. What is so amazing is that Hikaru generated the most discussion on the album, and she's virtually unknown in the U.S. That, to me, shows a bright future in Utada's U.S. career.

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...

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful ! Jan. 14 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is REALLY bad....much of the music is not even on the movie, and two of the best songs that SHOULD be on the album are not !! (Micheal Jackson : Dont stop till you get enough and P. Diddy : I'll be missing you). Wouldn't reccomend even buying this thing used...mine is going to be used for a coaster....or thrown in the trash.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool... Oct. 2 2001
By Allysa
Format:Audio CD
I'm a very big fan of hikaru utada. and i'd like to comment on her song'Blow my whistle' But first of all, i'd like to say, that this album pretty much rocks. i liked Ludicris Area Code. I think it's catchy and, hot. although kinda dirty.
The song 'Blow my Whistle'...I have to admit, i was kinda disapointed. It was nowhere near what i had expected. I just read one of the previous review, and it said that she's taking singing lessons. but i think it's making her voice sound less like herself. maybe there's a difference when u sing in japenese and english. But i think she sounded very beautiful when she sang "Fly me to the Moon"(in the single Wait and see~risk~) and she sounded more HERSELF.
Overall, i think this albums pretty cool.

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.
