Review

This soundtrack is about as charming as the allegedly funny, near-turkey Michael Douglas/Matt Dillon/Liv Tyler movie it belongs to. True, there's stylistic consistency of a sort, given that most of the songs here sport up-tempo dance rhythms and a trying-hard-to-be-funky mien (even though, genre-wise, the album ranges rather more expansively -- from the ska-rock of Bottlefly to Johnny Cash's "Wanted Man"). And a fair number of the songs are pleasant if not striking: A-ha's nth comeback single, "Velvet," Caleb's "She Likes the Attention," which is reminiscent of Duran Duran, and Morcheeba's "Love Is Rare," on which the band ups its normally dolorous tempo to good effect. But, somehow, it is the duds that tend to stick with you, coloring your experience of the album -- "Sexy Body" by the Jungle Brothers is about as sexy as a second-hand toupee on a fat man at the beach, giving the girls the glad eye, Touch and Go's "So Hot" is ham-fistedly party-hearty, and Ween's "Take Me Away" is startlingly disappointing given what the duo is capable of. ~ Leslie Mathew
