(5 out of 5 stars)
"01) Da Brat - The Introduction: Great, great, great beat. A short song, that sets up the whole album, and gives a short plot summary of the movie. 4/502) Destiny's Child Feat. Da Brat - Survivor [REMIX]: Great beat, great vocals, but the original song is played out, and this remix offers almost nothing more. 3/503) Royce Da 5'9" - Boom: Love the beat. It took a little getting used to, but after I listened to it a few more times, I really enjoyed it. 4/504) Rah Digga - What We Gonna' Do: I love this song. Probably my favorite on the album. The beat is awesome, and I love the chorus. 5/505) Beyonce Knowles - If Looks Could Kill, You Would Be Dead: Love the song. Beyonce has got some voice! And again, awesome beat. 5/506) Beyonce Knowles Feat. Wyclef Jean, and Rah Digga - Cards Never Lie: Great, slow song, that's actually pretty sad. Beyonce sings great as usual, but Wyclef almost ruins this song. 4.5/507) Beyonce Knowles and Mekhi Phifer - The Last Great Seduction: GREAT song! Beyonce, again, sings amazing, and Mekhi Phifer surprisingly raps great. Love the beat. 5/508) Casey Lee Feat. Rah Digga, and Joy Bryant - Great song. Great beat, and great rapping all around. Another one of my favorites on the album. 5/509) Mos Def and Mekhi Phifer - Black and Blue: Yet another great song. Once again, I love the beat, and the rapping is great. 5/510) Beyonce Knowles and Mekhi Phifer - Stop That: Yes, another great song, with a great beat. I love the lyrics, and Beyonce is fantastic as usual. 5/511) Casey Lee - Blaze Finale: Not one of my favorites on the album. I found it to be a little boring, and I'm not a big fan of Casey Lee in this song. But it does have a nice beat. 3/512) Da Brat - Immortal Beloved: Pretty much the same song as the first, but it sums up the story. 4/513) Destiny's Child Feat. Missy - Bootylicious [REMIX]: I love this song. Nice slow beat, with some great singing. Unlike the Survivor remix, this song offers more than the original song. 5/5Overall, a great, great album. Beyonce Knowles, the main star on this album, does a fantastic job. She sings, and raps great. Mekhi Phifer surprised me with some great rapping. Although there are one or two songs that should have been replaced, the many great tracks make up for it. Also, I would have liked this CD to run alittle bit longer. I know there were more songs in the film. Why not include them all and have a huge 2 disc set? But, I can't complain. The CD is great, and I highley recommend it to Destiny Child fans, and any hip-hop fan."
