Fox Television's animated comedy King of the Hill is yet another perfect mix of high wit and low humor. The soundtrack moves all over the map as well, with an interesting set of covers and a decidedly country flavor. Hank Hill himself delivers the spoken-word gem "Teddy Bear," a tune by Red Sovine that Hill calls "one of the greatest songs ever written." Travis Tritt teams up with George Thorogood for a solid rendition and reprisal of George's hit, the Hank Williams-penned "Move It on Over." The Mavericks add an extra dimension of festivity to Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Down on the Corner." Brooks & Dunn deliver Bob Seger's "Against the Wind" as the country song it always seemed to be. Faith Hill, however, can't quite erase Janis Joplin's imprint on "Piece of My Heart." Deana Carter traces Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'" and manages to find a previously untapped solemnity. For goofy pop, Barenaked Ladies deliver the ebullient "Get in Line." --Rob O'Connor

"First the show, then the book "The Boy Ain't Right," now this album. Those guys keep putting out one great product after another. What could be next, a great CD-ROM game? I can only hope.Anyway, the Barenaked Ladies Song is great, Hank Hill singing Red Sovine's "Teddy Bear" is an instant classic, Sheryl Crow has another hit, "Mow Against the Grain" made me laugh and Willie Nelson made me cry. This album has everything for everyone and I loved it. If you're a fan of the show or if you just like great music, GET THIS ALBUM!"

"I bought this because I love King of the Hill and now this has become of favorite family CD! Our 4-year-old requests it all the time. It is a great compilation - I am very pleased! I don't own cd's by any of these artists (besides Willie Nelson) and now I've got to check them all out. Barenaked Ladies, Travis Tritt, Old 97's, Tonic, Faith Hill...all are fabulous! The Mow Against the Grain song is great for a laugh! Enjoy!"

"If you love King of the Hill, you'll adore this soundtrack. Music is mingled with sound bites that will leave you laughing. "Mow Against the Grain" is the KotH version of "Everybody's Free (to Wear Sunscreen)" and it's a scream."
