CD Reviews

Light It Up was the Bomb
Joseph | Jersey City,New Jersey USA | 08/20/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I just brought the tape yesterday and I was really into it. The words of each song represented the movie. I personally reall liked "If Only Through Heavens Eyes" be N'sync. It was one of the first songs playing on the Ending Credits which made it even sader. I would like you to email me to talk about the Album."

"I'm not sure how I ended up with this CD, but I found it sitting on the shelf, so I pulled it out to be reviewed. Anyway, it's not that bad of an album (it's certainly better than the movie, but that's not saying much). Ja Rule's "How Many Wanna" is one of my favorite songs from him (hmmm...maybe that's why I got this CD) and quite possibly one of his best songs ever. There are other solid cuts like "That's Real" (Beanie Sigel & AZ), "High Schoolin' (Outkast & Slimm Calhoun), and "Light It Up" (Master P & The No Limit All Stars) and 112's "Anything" and Beverly's "Here" are nice little throw ins. After those great tracks, things take a serious nosedive.

As with most soundtracks, there are a fair number of tracks where the artists are simply going through the motions. DMX's "Catz Don't Know" is boring and Amil & Sole' drop one of the most lifeless tracks I've ever heard with the uninspired "First One Hit." And don't even get me started on Jon B's miserable cover of Bob Marley's "Waiting In Vain." The rest of the unmentioned songs, while not totally bad, are pretty forgettable.

The Light It Up soundtrack isn't all bad. Some of the tracks are generic, but that should be expected with most movie soundtracks. The gems on the album make it worth grabbing if you can find it used (I don't think I could justify buying this brand new). I recommend giving this album a listen before actually buying it though.

Standout Tracks: How Many Wanna (My Favorite), High Schoolin', Light It Up, and That's Real"
