Top Customer Reviews
This is a great CD and felt well for a good movie. I thought the poem was redundantly horrible but despite that failure the music shines. "Sweetest Thing" is a great song w/ interesting but not trite lyrics about black love. Maxwell's remix of "Somethin' Somethin'" is beautiful. "Jelly, Jelly" roars and blows fillers like Xscape and Kenny Latimore out of the way. Meshell's song is catchy too. Also, the stand out track to me is (if the Oscars knew good music would have gave it a nomination for best song from a film) "Hopeless" by Dionne Ferris. What a perfect song from a true soul/rock artist... "they say I'm hopeless like a penny w/ a whole in it." Despite some extreme fillers this album is one of the best sound track albums from the 90's.
Also included in the set is "The Sweetest Thing" by the Refugee Camp All-Stars. This is the first song featuring Lauryn Hill on vocals that captivated me.
Another gem on the CD is "Rush Over" by bassist Marcus Miller with Me'Shell N'degeocello on vocals. The interplay between these two artists on this track help make this CD worth purchasing.
The CD also includes some classic tracks like Duke Ellington's "In a Sentimental Mood" and a re-recorded version of Minnie Riperton's "Inside My Love" by Trina Broussard. While Ms. Broussard does a nice rendition, you're left wanting to re-visit the classic version.
Overall, the soundtrack is an above average CD. One wishes that some of the other tracks were as distinctive as the ones mentioned above.

If for nothing else, the inclusion of the incredibly beautiful HOPELESS by Dionne Farris would have been reason enough to buy this soundtrack.
