The soundtrack seems to be PG-rated (if THAT), and it's a good thing because the movie is like that too. But another thing is that it seems to be targeted toward the high school audience (I was 15 when this came out), so if you're over 18, don't expect to be bumping this in your car or anything. This isn't to say the soundtrack is bad. There are great songs like R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly", Monica's "For You I Will", and D'Angelo's "I Found My Smile Again". All-4-One also shows up to sing "I Turn To You", which most people probably didn't know was recorded before Christina Aguilera's 2000 #3 hit. I like Christina's rendition better, but this version is still good.
Since Space Jam is about basketball, it wouldn't be right not to have some energetic tracks on here. B-Real, Busta Rhymes, Coolio, LL Cool J and Method Man bring us The Monstars' Anthem (the Monstars were the opposing team in the movie), otherwise known as "Hit 'Em High". And the title track, performed by Quad City DJs, is decent, but all their songs sound the same to me.
The last song is the humorous "Buggin'" as performed by Bugs Bunny (and was written by Jay-Z, I must add). Bugs and the other characters are voiced by Billy West (best known as the voice of the Honey Nut Cheerios bee), but at the end of the song it sounds like he's getting lazy with the voice (of Bugs, anyway). And I'm not exactly sure why Robin S. (of "Show Me Love" fame) is on here, but her "Givin' U All That I've Got" sounds like her other songs too. But regardless, this soundtrack was a perfect match for the movie. I don't really listen to it that much now, but it's still great.
I'll admit a few tracks could be better but considering that it was a movie for the family, I found it to be worthwhile. It even has a track with Method man and Busta amongst others. THe track lyrically is not your typical rap song because after all kids were a big part of the audience. But it had a decent hook and I liked it. But still this is mainly an R&B album, and I recommend it to those who like R&B. Young or old you will probally like this cd, I do!
THIS IS ONE OF THE FIRST AND ONLY AND FEW CDS OF MY COLLECTION WHERE THERE ARE NO TRACKS TO SKIP, WHERE EVERY TRACK IS GOOD, AND WHERE YOU CAN LISTEN TO IT THE WHOLE CD THROUGH. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE CDS AND I RECCOMMEND IT TO YOU IF YOU LIKE SOFT ROCK, RAP, AND/OR R&B. I DO, AND IF YOU DO TOO, I RECCOMMEND THIS ALBUM TO YOU. HOWEVER, THERE IS AN ADVISORY: YOU MIGHT WANT TO SKIP TRACK 5, "HIT'EM HIGH", BECAUSE THEY TALK ABOUT VIOLENCE ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE SONG. I DON'T MIND THAT IN THIS CASE BECAUSE THEY'RE JUST PRETENDING TO BE THE MONSTARS IN THIS SONG, AND THEY'RE JUST TALKING ABOUT WHAT THE MONSTARS DO, AND THE MONSTARS ARE ONLY CARTOON CHARACTERS, AND CARTOONS ARE ONLY FANTASY. BUT IF YOU DON'T LIKE THAT, EVEN IN THIS CASE, (and i know some people who do,) YOU MIGHT WANT TO SKIP THAT TRACK ON THIS CD.THANK YOU, MOM, FOR GIVING ME SUCH A CD THAT IS SO GOOD. THE ONLY THING THAT I WAS DISAPPOINTED ABOUT ON THIS CD IS THAT I WAS HOPING THAT MORE SONGS FROM SPACE JAM THE MOVIE THAT I LIKED VERY MUCH WERE ON THIS CD, AND THEY WEREN'T. I LOVE SPACE JAM THE MOVIE, ITS MY FAVORITE MOVIE, IN, FACT, AND I LOVE SPACE JAM THE SOUNDTRACK, ITS MY FAVORITE SOUNDTRACK, IN FACT.
THANK YOU FOR READING MY REVIEW. PLEASE FORGIVE ME FOR SHOUTING. BYE!!
P.S. MY FAVORITE SONG IS NO.9, ROBIN S., "GIVIN' YOU ALL THAT I'VE GOT." MAN, THAT SONG ROCKS! (Well, actually no. it's actually a dance song, but you know what i mean.)

Most movie soundtracks featuring rap and R'n'B songs usually contain one or two well-known hits and then some mediocre songs are added as filler. Not this album! Read morePublished on Dec 10 2000 by Minh Nguyen
