Product Description


Given that the film is a western, admittedly a sci-fi comedy western, the tracks on this disc wouldn't really fit in the movie. Of course, Wild Wild West is also a Will Smith blockbuster, and this is where the album takes its lead, making this a slick and polished successor to the best-selling Men in Black song album. Will Smith opens with the title tune, a catchy and highly commercial chart-storming rap featuring Dru Hill and Kool Mo Dee. The remaining 14 tracks are mainly light pop-rap, though "Bailamos" by Enrique Iglesias adds an attractive Latin flavour and Faith Evans' "Mailman" and "Hero" by Breeze are both smooth soul ballads. It's difficult to see how some of the tracks are really inspired by the film, while others skilfully stir western ingredients into the mix--"Bad Guys Always Die" by Dr. Dre & Eminem adding six-gun samples to an outlaw odyssey. This is state-of-the-art radio friendly US rap, but just make sure you get the album you really want, because the orchestral soundtrack album by Elmer Bernstein (who composed the western classic The Magnificent Seven) has a virtually identical cover. --Gary S. Dalkin

3.0 out of 5 stars Hmm . . . June 3 2001
Format:Audio CD
I got pretty tired of this CD quickly, which isn't that unusual for me, but I am still very disapointed. The songs Wild Wild West and Bailamos are very good, and I can still listen to them, but most of this disc is forgettable R&B and rap songs with a pop side to them. Lil' Bow Wow had his debut song on this album, which is the horrible Stick Up with Jermaine Dupri. Artists like Faith Evans, Tatyana Ali and Blackstreet make up the majority of this disc. While their songs individually may sound good, all grouped together they sound boring and repetitive. The track by Common has nowhere near the depth and thoughtfullness his later work featured, even though it does give the talented Jill Scott a time to shine. Dr.Dre and Eminem's duet is interesting, and is completely profanity free (Oh my God) but the chorus gets on your nerves so quick. If you really like R&B pop, then this would be a good buy. But if you want some catchy music, or rap with depth, do not buy this. You will be really disapointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars This ain't no "Soundtrack" July 15 1999
Format:Audio CD
For true movie soundtrack fans, this album is an abysmal waste of money. Once more, we are given a CD of mediocre pop music under the guise of a motion picture "soundtrack", when in reality it is nothing more than an excuse to package a bunch of songs and associating them with what the publisher hopes will be a hit (but essentially unrelated) property.
Only two songs here are actually in the movie; the rest is just padding. OK, I admit, Will Smith's theme song is ok, but the rest could just as easily have been released on a separate album. In any case, THEY HAVE NO BUSINESS BEING ON AN ALBUM BILLED AS THE "SOUNDTRACK". They do not enhance the movie in any way, they do not even catch the movie's spirit. For the most part they come off vaguely as something akin to "Wild, Wild West in the 'Hood"; as a representative of a movie that is patently a Western (even a comedic one), the juxtaposition just doesn't work. Whose bright idea was this?
If you're a movie score fan, don't waste the money. Wait until Elmer Bernstein's score is released separately (as, I am told, it is scheduled to be). While you're at it, keep the pressure up on 20th Century Fox to release David Arnold's "Godzilla" score separately, just like they promised us.
Just don't bother with this album.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rap songs for a Western... suuuuure. July 8 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This latest "soundtrack" for a soon-to-be blockbuster movie is an even bigger disgrace than most. Never mind that it DOES try to disclaim itself by referring to itself as "inspired by", the fact that it will be looked upon as THE soundtrack to the film makes its existence even more sickening. Wild Wild West is NOT an urban comedy. It's a Western, and the presence of all these songs is shockingly inappropriate. Even more galling is the fact that that none but two appear in the movie, and even then during the end credits (at least the music editor employed common sense here; their appearance during the main film would have made it a complete failure). I know Will Smith is becoming more influential, both as a performer and as a producer. Wouldn't it have been just as easy to put this same compilation under the title "Will Smith & The Family" or something like that? I don't think he needs the help of a movie's name. All in all, wait until July 20th for Elmer Bernstein's superior original music score if you want some honest Wild Wild Western music. Don't settle for the impostor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wild, Wild Sept. 9 2000
By "kyara"
Format:Audio CD
Ha, ha, here we go again! Wild Wild West is a pretty good movie, so I decided to get this. I was at first, plainly dispointed. I had expected better. (I always do!) But I've got used to it now, and it really isn't so bad. "Wild Wild West", is a great song, probably Will Smith's best. "Bailamos" adds a different flavor to the whole thing, but after that it kinda fails.
"Confused" is a song I've learned to except, and just listen to it anyway; it's not that great, but not that bad. "Keep it Moving" is one of the better songs that I enjoy. "Getting Closer" has a great tune, but it's gets tiring after a while. "Bad Guys Always Die" is probably my second favorite on the CD, I just love Eminem and Dr. Dre. "Mailman" is overall depressing. The other two "exceptable" tunes are "8 minutes to Sunrise" and "Stick Up", even though it seems cut of. The whole thing IS wild.

In the soundtrack Wild Wild West Will Smith did a good job as the album's executive producer. The main theme song Wild Wild West is very good and I enjoyed the beat and Latino feel of Enrique Iglesias's Bailamos. I didn't enjoy some songs though, such BLACKstreet's Confused,Keep it Movin' by MC Lyte and Payne, Getting Closer by Tatyana Ali and Kel Spencer and most of all Chocolate Form by Neutral. And I didn't really enjoy The Best by Guy. 8 Minutes to Sunrise by Common and Jill Scott was okay from my view. I really enjoy Bad Guys Always Die. It and Wild Wild West, to me, have to do more with the movie than some other songs. I Sparkle by SLick Rick probably is describing Jim West and his slick and smooth style. Other songs like Stick Up by Jermaine Dupri and Lil' Bow Wow and I'm Wanted by Kel Spencer had to do with the west but not really the movie. I saw the movie with two friends and the soundtrack is a little bit better than the motion picture.

This c.d. is alright. I just love Eminem but I thought this song was one of his corniest songs he has ever done. I thought the theme song was really good but the rest of the c.d. Read more

This soundtrack album is a well-balanced representation of songs inspired and heard in the film. The music is tantalizing. It is a well-executed and very refreshing CD. Read more
