Mike Myers's love letter to mid-'60s pop kitsch (and understated critique of the hardcore '90s) may not have wowed many critics, but it soldiered quirkily along to become a true cult hit. Its soundtrack is one of the film's more underrated charms--a savvy mix of '60s and '90s influences that are by turns infectiously silly (the Powers-fronted Ming Tea's earnestly energetic "BBC") and downright sublime (Burt Bacharach and the Posies' new take on "What the World Needs Now"). Cuts by acid-jazz powerhouse The James Taylor Quartet, the Diviynls, Quincy Jones, the Cardigans, and others round out the decidedly groovy proceedings. --Jerry McCulley

As Austin puts it, this album is 'groovy baby', so much so that it makes you want to step into a time portal and head back to the 60's! All the songs on the album are retro and kitsch, which ultimately sits well with the movie's themes. (How hard is that to find in a movie soundtrack these days?) What's interesting to note is that most of the songs are covered by modern day artists, which indicates in some respects that this is a 60's 'tribute' album. Standout tracks include 'Carnival' by the masters of retro-pop the Cardigans, 'Soul Bossa Nova' by the legendary Quincy Jones and 'Female of the Species' by Space. This soundtrack is definitely a feel-good album and is great to sing along to. So if you are a fan of retro, or want an album that can keep you in an optimistic frame of mind (think 60's flower power!), than this soundtrack is a must have.

This CD might hold more appeal for baby boomers than generation X'ers, but if you enjoyed the music while watching the movie, then you'll likely enjoy this CD. The subtly modernized version of The Turtles classic "You Showed Me" put a new twist on an old favorite. I was impressed that some of the remakes even contained simulated vinyl pops and scratches making this CD literally groovy!. Many of the late 60's classics brought back some nice feelings. The CD would not have been complete without "Mas Que Nada", however, I was disappointed that "Secret Agent Man" was absent. Also, it would have been nice to have included the original version of Bacharach's "What The World Needs Now is Love". All in all though this was a very "groovy" CD!

Yeah, Baby, Yeah! I got this cd, and it's in my computer now! Very groovy, because I can pinpoint the songs in the movie. Gotta love the instrumental music. Someone mentioned something about dancing, it inspired me to do a dance routine to "Soul Bossa Nova!" The only thing wrong with it is that the cd doesn't have two of my favorite songs from the movie: (I don't know what it's called, but it's the song that plays when you first see the fembots), and that Secret Agent Man song. It would be a 6-star cd if it had those two tracks. Other than that, Yeah, Groovy Baby!

This has to be the best movie soundtrack I've ever bought. It includes almost all the songs that caught my attention in the film itself (although "Secret Agent Man" and "These Boots Were Made For Walking" would have been nice) and some great ones I didn't even hear in the movie. I reccomend this to any fan of 60s-era pop (and 90s era pop too!).

The Austin Powers movies did nothing for me. Actually, I only saw the first one and couldn't wait for it to be over. But this soundtrack is great!! It is sooo much fun to hear all these songs from the 60's and 70's again. It's a blast. I first heard it in an exercise class and everyone in the class wanted to know the title of the cd. Enjoy the fun!!

This is a really enjoyable compilation -- there's classic lounge tunes like 'Soul Bossa Nova,' plus modern rock songs like 'Female of the Species,' & covers of older lounge tunes by modern bands. It all works together to create the ideal cocktail party background music for even the most diverse crowd. Yeah, baby, yeah!

Soundtracks are often a let-down on the film they're based on & skimp on the good tunes that appeared on screen, only to be replaced with music 'inspired' by the film. Fortunately, this soundtrack DOES live up to a well sound-tracked film and I can think of no omissions in terms of music that should be on here.

Of the songs that are memorable, there are tracks 1, 4, 5 and 8, all of which are rich in the sounds they bring to the film & are the type of tracks. Annoyingly, there's no way of humming the songs to you! However, they are the songs that you've almost certainly heard yet can't place (e.g. Mas Que Nada - track 5).

Secondly, there are the pop songs which appear in the film, which you can probably name: 6, 7, 11, 13 and 14. Although you may know the Burt Bacharach ones (13 and 14), I'm betting you don't have them all in one place or that you've lost your copies. Happily, these AND that song where Austin seduces the Fembots (I Touch Myself (11 are all on here.

Lastly and, perhaps sadly, there are songs on here that are not catchy or familiar, but which flesh out the soundtrack & play some part in the film: 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 12, 15, 16 and 17. These range from the interesting (2: "BBC 1, BBC 2, BBC 3..." etc) to the rather bland (12: Call me). However, there's not sufficient numbers of the bland ones to make for a bad soundtrack.

So, overall this soundtrack is compelling, with a varied assortment of sounds to make for a first class soundtrack and mercifully few also-rans. As initially stated, if you enjoyed the film then you can't go wrong in getting a copy of this.

This is a great CD. Even if you hated Austin Powers (if you did you're nuts) you'll love this CD. It has it all. Great sounding popish stuff, cool sounding band stuff, and groovy 60's stuff. You can't go wrong.
