Any Given Sunday ~ Any Given Sunday: Music From Th
Put together the grandiose vision of director Oliver Stone (JFK, Natural Born Killers), the larger-than-life world of professional (American) football, and the over-the-top theatrics of Al Pacino (the Godfather, Dog Day Afternoon), and what do you expect? A quiet little soundtrack of introspective folk songs? No, this is a Wagnerian production in which the pace never lets up. Whether it's the protometal of Godsmack, the petulant whine of Courtney Love fronting the always grungy Hole, or the expletive-laden Kid Rock, the frontal attack is always overkill. Sunday star Jamie Foxx performs the title track, which, while subdued, still moves forth on an ominous note. Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott's track "Who You Gonna Call" has a sly sense of humour. LL Cool J (who also appears in the film) performs "Shut 'Em Down", sounding like a speed freak spilling the company secrets. Now, if only we could convince Pacino to rap. --Rob O'Connor
Top Customer Reviews
Apart from the stellar Missy Elliot and the always amazing LL Cool J, I found this to be yet another featureless pile of bland gangsta rap with a few pieces of random heavy metal shrapnel tossed in. Those of you who are into this style of rap will probably say that the music choices are fabulous. For me, none of the wonderful musical texture in the movie is reflected here.
I specifically remember watching a slow motion shot of a long pass spiraling in toward the camera and in the background I heard "Do you wanna revolution? - whoop whoop whoop - Do you wanna revolution? - whoop whoop whoop." It was a great cut. Is it on the album? No. Where are all the great cuts that really helped to plug this movie into the wall socket? Give up, They're not on this album.
Bottom Line: If you're into this style of rap, why are you reading this review anyway? You know what you like and you'll probably like this. On the other hand, if you are like me and you find this kind of rap textureless and dry, don't expect to find any of the musical excitement of the movie on this CD.
Did you like the football scenes? Guess what, pretty much none of the music from the football scenes are in this soundtrack. Moby, Propellerheads, even that track from Run Lola Run soundtrack? Nope. If you think about it, pretty much all the music that set the tone of the movie came from the score during plot scenes, and the various techno and electronica that was used to fuel the pace of the action/football sequences. I love rap, but EXACTLY how much rap is there in the movie, compared to what's on the soundtrack? The proportion is waaaaaaaay off. I challenge you to try and remember what parts of the movie had these music tracks. Fairly minor.
If you like the music in the movie, this is my suggestion. Print out a list of the tracks from this website. Put it in your pocket. Sneak a peek at the Any Given Sunday credits at the end, next time you're in a theater that's showing it. Now write down all the music tracks listed in the credits that *ARENT* on the soundtrack CD, and voila... now you have the "true" soundtrack, with all the music from the football scenes as well. Now go search for the albums with those tracks on them. Or be evil and download the individual MP3s. Legally that is.
BOTTOM LINE: I like rap a lot (1/2 of my music collection) and I hated this rap-filled soundtrack. Why? Because I buy soundtracks expecting to get the significant music in the movie. I see it as a waste of my money.Read more ›

This movie was full of good "clips" but the songs on the soundtrack are not what I was looking for. It is loaded with "gansta" rap. Read morePublished on Sept. 1 2003 by Mark
