Product Description

Rush Hour ~ Def Jam's Rush Hour Soundtrack

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

Def Jam's "Rush Hour Soundtrack" is an almost perfect soundtrack album. It has a skit every now and then, that was tooken from the movie. The song by Too Short is amazing, and Can I Get A? buy Jay-Z is also good. It also has a song from Westcoast gangster rappers Daz Dillinger & Big Tray Dee. I gave it a 4 star all because of the first 2 songs. EVERY other song on this album is awesome, a hip hop masterpeice.

Rush Hour is a great movie! The Soundtrack however is something I could do without! The biggest song in the movie is Edwin Starr's "War." Not only is it played countless times, but it is even referred to by Chris Tucker in the dancing scene. But for some reason it did not make it to the soundtrack! This is unfortunate because had it been on the soundtrack...it would've easily been the best song on this CD! True there are one or two decent pieces on here...but if you're in it for a song or two, resort to Napster!

First off, this isn't really focused on the movie. As you can see from the title (Def Jam's Rush Hour Soundtrack) this is mainly an excuse to get a compilation of Def Jam artists out there. Although the skits are from the movie, and Can I Get A was used in one scene, everything else is basically new. So anyways, onto my review. There is nothing unique or special about these songs, but they are enjoyable. The album opens up with the "Skit" Never Touch A Black Mans Radio from the movie. Anybody who has seen the movie should know what scene all of these skits are from, as they are all from major parts in the movie. The CD then goes into the trio of three singles from the album: the mediocre How Deep Is Your Love performed by Dru Hill, the unimaginably boring Faded Pictures by Case and Joe, and the runaway jamming hit Can I Get A . . . by Jay-Z, Amil and Ja Rule which is easily the best song on here. Wu Tang has their song And You Don't Stop, which is pretty good but could have been better. Then Ja Rule has the angry, in your face, almost too much Bitch Betta Have My Money. Some of these songs will make you wonder what rap and hip-hop have come to, but wait. Two of the most awesome songs are coming up. Slick Rick's Impress The Kid is in a league of it's own, and the Montell Jordan/Monifah collaboration If I Die Tonight is sexy and intimate as hell. Everybodies favorite hottie Jon B. delivers well with his song Glad That We Loved, which is also
pretty good. After that, none of the tracks beside the movie snippets are really good. I'd buy this if you like the artists mentioned here, or you want to buy a soundtrack with hip-hop and R&B music. Fans of the movie might like this, but as the biggest song in the movie, War by Edwin Starr, is not included, beware before you buy it.

i found this movie great, of course, i'm a chan fan. i also like some songs and music of the film so i decide to buy this album. the surprise is that i don't found a lot of songs, the worst thing is that the songs that appear don't reflect the movie feeling. what's that of def jam? always the same, a poor hiphop, without strong, without heart, always the same. there are many songs or just one very long? i hate this cd, this is not a sountrack is another bad-defjam-album. SOUNDTRACK, music of a movie! if you like the music of the movie connect your taperecorder to your vhs and just record the sound, believe me.

First of all, for the "music fan from San Jose," you have no idea what you're talking about. This soundtrack is definitely worth it and it's also doing great on the charts. This soundtrack has been on the Billboard charts for 6 weeks and is already #5. In addition, "How Deep Is Your Love," by Dru Hill Featuring Redman and "Can I Get A...," by Jay-Z Featuring Amil (Of Major Coinz) And Ja Rule, are also on the Billboard Top 100 Singles. So there.

Def Jam Recording's Rush Hour sound track rocks the house and turns it upside down. Songs like Disco, Can I Get A..., and Terror Squadians complement Chris Tucker's hilarious skits taken directly from the movie. Jay-Z and Dru Hill may be the strongest artists on the label, but Wu Tang Clan among others are worth listening to.

I kinda of liked the songs that were on the cd. The one from Wu had a nice beat to it but I really bought it for Dru Hill's and Jay-Z'z songs. If it weren't for those songs, I wouldn't have bought the cd. I would've just went to see the movie cause I love Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan is my favorite marital arts actor.
