The title track from Curtis Mayfield's New World Order is also included on the soundtrack for Spike Lee's film about the Million Man March, Get on the Bus. Mayfield proclaims sweat is rolling down the Statue of Liberty's brow because she's worried that "the sleeping giant" of racism and classism "is no longer sleeping." Similar calls to action are issued by such political rappers as Guru and a Tribe Called Quest. The album's highlight is a powerful version of Bob Marley's "Redemption Song" by Stevie Wonder. Though hip-hop and R&B dominate the album, two of the best cuts are gospel numbers. Kirk Franklin's "My Life Is in Your Hands" is religious, but the Neville Brothers' "Over a Million Strong" makes the connection between gospel music and political justice as the Civil Rights movement once did in the '60s. --Geoffrey Himes

HASH(0xa675f7d4) out of 5 stars Good tracks, but dissapointing for what it's not Feb. 27 2000
By Christian Dawson - Published on
Format: Audio CD
A bunch of good tracks on this album. However, the movie opens with one of the best tracks that Michael Jackson has done in years. Beautiful! Well, it's not here - nowhere to be found. A shame, since it does such a good job setting the tone for the movie. Not sure what the title of the song is, but it would singlehandedly force me to give this album a five star rating. Oh, well!

HASH(0xa675f828) out of 5 stars What, no MJ??!!?? Sept. 14 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I could not believe I was hearing a brand new track by the King of Pop when I saw the beginning of this movie. I was so excited, I immediately went online to buy it, only to see that it was not on the soundtrack! Now how the heck do you have Michael Jackson do a song for a movie and don't put it on a soundtrack? It's beyond me.

HASH(0xa675f9fc) out of 5 stars A Fantastic Soundtrack (that's missing a Classic)! March 1 2013
By DV - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This really is a great soundtrack that does not have many, if ANY, weak tracks on it. However, as the other reviewers have noted, it is missing the Michael Jackson song "On the Line" that so beautifully opened the movie (which is the ONLY reason my rating is 4 out of 5 and not a perfect 5). Sounds like there were very few of us who weren't touched, grabbed or mesmerized by this "new" MJ track when we first heard it at the film's beginning. Well, I've since read that Mr. Jackson did write it specifically for this movie but requested it be left off the soundtrack. Hmmmmmm... At least we got the smooooth Earth Wind & Fire track "Cruisin'" featuring Phillip Bailey's signature falsetto voice! This is indeed a 'you-and-your-significant-other' mood-setting song if I've ever heard one. Also, the Neville Brother's "Over a Million Strong" has a sing-along chorus that sinks a hook deep into your Groove Spot and won't let go. Leave it to the Brothers, who are the Founding FATHERS of NOLA funk, to write the perfect song for this film.

Btw, the only other place I've found that MJ track, "On the Line" is on disc 4 of his "Ultimate Collection". Maybe he was just saving it for this 4cd/1 dvd collection....?

HASH(0xa6ce303c) out of 5 stars some good tracks, some throwaway Nov. 2 2012
By Donald E. Gilliland - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Well, I never saw the film so I can't join the rank of disgruntled MJ fans out there. But I saw this CD in the sale bin of a local shop and a few tracks on here interested me, so I took the chance on the rest of the soundtrack. It's sort of what I expected; a hit and miss mix of tunes. The best ones, in my opinion, are the "old school" offerings from Curtis Mayfield, the Neville Brothers, and Stevie Wonder (doing a nice Bob Marley tune). I also love D'Angelo's cover of the old Eddie Kendricks song "Girl You Need a Change of Mind." That alone, is almost worth getting this CD. A track by Marvin Davis, "I Love My Woman," is also quite nice. But other tracks, some with rap and hip-hop elements, from the likes of Doug E. Fresh, Guru, BlackStreet, and A Tribe Called Quest sound boring and dated to me. If you can get this CD for cheap, go for it. A handful of very good songs on here.

HASH(0xa6ce3060) out of 5 stars No MJ.... Sept. 23 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I was equally disappointed that Michael Jackson's song opened the movie "Get On The Bus", but was absent from the soundtrack. There are some good tracks, but the soundtrack would have been much better had that song been included. For those who don't know, the name of the song is "On The Line", and it was written and produced by Babyface. The only place I have ever seen this song was on a special edition of "Ghosts". Hope this information is helpful to those who need it.
