5.0 out of 5 stars The best, most appropriate movie soundtrack ever? May 31, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I don't pretend to spend enough time watching movies from the 20th Century long enough to make this statement, but this Friday Soundtrack is pretty damn close to the best I've heard from any movie of any kind.

I will however stand behind proclaiming this the greatest hip hop soundtrack of all-time!

With this CD, you get a movie soundtrack that combines old school soul with new school West Coast hip hop that ruled the better part of the early '90s and fits this movie's 1995 South Central L.A. setting.

Obviously it will help a listener relate and understand the place of each song on this soundtrack by actually watching the movie first -- otherwise, you'll probably take this CD's creative interpretations as nothing more than easy listening for bluntheads and triflin', good-4-nuthin' type of bruthaz who don't have jobs.

This isn't that kind of negative movie -- it's more light-hearted, very funny, very laid back and the soundtrack reflects that.

The soundtrack gets off to a flawless start with two tracks that were and continue to be four-star hip hop bangers: Ice Cube's "Friday" and Dr. Dre's "Keep They Heads Ringin'". Cube's title track basically puts it down as far as talking about the fun, sometimes querky, sometimes violent and hella crazy antics that go down in his 'hood (thus, why you need to see the movie to relate). The other is a smash party/dance track with an adequate Dre rap over a hype, relentless Dre beat (enough said).

Mixed in you get the original recordings of some of "Our parents music" with classics like the Isley Brothers "Tryin' 2 see another day," "You Got me wide open" by Bootsy Collins, the classic Rick James track "Mary Jane" and the soulful, slow love ballad "I Wanna Get Next to You" by Rose Royce.

5.0 out of 5 stars a terrific cd October 25, 2006
By Sachbvn
Format:Audio CD
this is a great album to cruise in your car to. i bought the friday/friday-old school 2 cd set at best buy because there was only like $1 difference, i'm not sure which one i like better, they are both that good - if you only have one of the friday cd's - you much get the other. sure a couple of the songs are on both (mary jane, and a different version of heard it through the grape vine) but its still worth it. i love cruising around to War's "low rider" playing with the bass turned up - great times. one of Dr. Dre's best songs - "keep their heads ringin'" is on here, and another one of my favs is Ice Cube's "Friday" but the whole cd is full of great music to drive to, the old school cd is another great cd, a nice change of pace after listening to the original for awhile but still gives you the same kinda feeling.

James Brown - "hit it and quit it, come on now, can we hit it and quit it, hit it and quit it now.... a dat - dat - dat - dat - dat - dat - dat"

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best soundtrack for the '90s! June 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This will most likely be a nomination for best soundtrack of the 90s. The best songs are tracks 1, 2, 3, 5, 12, 13, and 14. This has a HUGE west coast feel to it. If you're into the whole westside style, then this is a great addition to your vault. WESSSSIIIIDE!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Serious Tunes to Accompany a Hella Funny Classic Comedy December 23, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Ice Cube's soundtrack to accompany the 1995 movie is a well-balanced mix of gangsta rap, g-funk, and cool R&B (some of it old-school soul). Dr. Dre's "Keep Their Heads Ringin'" is an all around fun time classic that got constant rotation in my native Southern Cali in spring of 1995. The beat is some sick deep-groove funk produced by Sam Sneed, a sick g-funk producer from Pittsburgh, Pa. Ice Cube'e "Friday" is a classic house party joint with a flamboyant lowrider beat. We also get Rick James 1978 classic, the laidback and soulful weed ode, "Mary Jane," a song sampled 1000 times (or more) for rap joints. We also get some Miami booty bass on ther raunchy "Hoochie Mama." We also get to sample some sweet Rose Royce, the soul packed "I Wanna Get Next To You," a cool jam with sophistication. Roger, from Zapp, kicks in his slick talkbox in "I Heard It Through the Grapevine." Cypress Hill lights up a spliff on the raw underground boom-bap vibin' "Roll it Up, Light It Up, Smoke It Up." E-A-Ski kicks in some deadly verses on "Blast If I Have To" with him and CMT producing a menacing, loud G-Funk beat. The Isley Brothers get it new school on the cool, swingin hood livin' anthem "Trying To See Another Day," and Ronnie Isley still has that dope, tenor voice that made so many hits decades before. The beat is guitar driven and deep-groovin' New Jack style; at times, it sounds like a rock beat. One of my favorite joints is Scarface and Mad CJ Mac's party starter "Friday Night," over a deep-twangy, Texas style G-Funk lowrider ready beat by N.O. Joe perfect to roll ya 64 down I-10 from L.A. to Houston. The rest of the songs ranging from the Alkaholiks, to Bootsy Collins, to Mack 10 all bang and bridge the gap between the old-school and newer school and display different styles of music.
