The delusional Jay ("a pimped-out Jedi knight," as Bloodhound Gang's "Jackass" has it) and ironic, semi-wise Silent Bob finally get their own Kevin Smith feature and accompanying soundtrack album. A stack of jokingly aggressive, self-deprecating tunes by the Bloodhounds, Stroke 9, and Marcy Playground are augmented by straight-faced rawk from across the spectrum (Steppenwolf, Bon Jovi, PJ Harvey) and a true pick-to-click in Afroman's hilariously blunted hip-hop testament "Because I Got High." Add more than a dozen film sound bites--Jay's recollection of Good Will Hunting as that "movie with a Mork from Ork in it," his electro-goofy "Jay's Rap 2001," and some prime Chris Rock moments among them--and the result is a CD made to order for fans of the dynamic duo. --Rickey Wright

"This soundtrack pretty much follows the same formula as the "Mallrats" cd, soundbite-song-soundbite-song, but the music is more eclectic. There's numerous other soundtracks I wish did that, like "Dumb and Dumber" and "Northern Exposure". Anyway, The music is as diverse as "PJ Harvey", "Bon Jovi", and "Afroman". Not every song is a winner, but most fit. The big plus though is hearing "Jay", "Will Ferrell", and "Chris Rock" between tracks. It will take you right back to the movie, along with some "doobie snacks"."

"The JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK soundtrack offers a good time. However, if you are looking for "Jungle Love" the way you remember it from PURPLE RAIN, you need to get ICE CREAM CASTLE by [Morris Day] and the Time. The version of the song on this soundtrack is live. It's a good live, but it's different."
