Synopsis

Amazon.com
It's certainly not news anymore that soundtracks have a life of their own, far independent of their cinematic tie-in. In fact, it's highly likely that fewer than half of the songs on this soundtrack appear in the movie; after all, there needs to be some time for dialogue and plot. Nevertheless, these compilations--let's call them what they are--serve a vital purpose, since, with the exception of prog rock, singles are more important than albums, and a good collection of singles beats a few good songs and a smattering of filler by a single artist. However, what can be said about a handful of good singles sprinkled amid indistinct and mediocre tracks from a variety of high-profile artists? That's the problem on the Rush Hour soundtrack. Dru Hill, Jay-Z, Ja Rule, Too Short, and the duo of Snoop Dogg and Slick Rick are the few highlights in the 70 minutes of music here, while Montell Jordan, Wu-Tang, Jon B, and others mail it in. I guess that's why they make CD players programmable and sell them with remotes. --Martin Johnson
 

CD Reviews

This is such a great CD!!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Not only does this soundtrack have a variety of great music on it, it also has clips from the movie. I think the rap music industry has outdone itself this time providing a great source of entertainment for people to listen to while doing just about anything. Not only that, but this CD is great to dance to and will lighten up any party!!"
Edit version of this sountrack is excellent.

"This sound track is still the bomb! The clean version of Rush Hour sound is the way to go and a sure winner in having several hits on one cd. This version will be around for awhile. I'll be bumbing this in my Jeep this summer."
