5.0 out of 5 stars ... Great combination of R&B and Jazz August 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the very few soundtracks that from beginning to end you get nothing but quality music. Sometimes, in the making of a soundtrack, a label gets caught up in trying to get an all star cast of artists, then it takes away from the qulaity of music on the soundtrack and a lot of times the songs have nothing to do with the movie. It's just an effort to sell units, so to speak. The "Love Jones" soundtrack is a perfect example of what a soundtrack should be. Few soundtracks have been able to match the intensity of this soundtrack. It starts off with a spoken word, by Darius, (Larenz Tate) taking the actual excerpt from the movie. This is an excellent way to start a soundtrack. After that things only get better with one of the best songs on this collection, "Hopeless" by Dionne Farris. Although, this song may be depressing to some people, it's a brilliant example of what the movie "Love Jones" is about and the song actually relates to the two main characters, Darius and Nina. Things only get better after this song: One of the breakthrough songs of Lauryn Hill's solo career, "The Sweetest Thing" is also featured on this soundtrack. This song and "Killing Me Softly" on The Fugees' "The Score" CD had people anxiously awaiting a Lauryn Hill solo project. Other quality performances are given by Maxwell, "Sumthin' Sumthin' Mellosmoothe (Cut)", Groove Theory, "Never Enough", and by The Brand New Heavies with "I Like It". If you like good, quality r&b and jazz music, then this is the soundtrack for you. You'll also enjoy the spoken words taken from the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Soundtrack April 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is bringing back loads of memories for me. I remember when the movie came out and I remember the first time I heard the soundtrack some 8 years ago and being blown away by it. Ah, college dayz! The movie had a sexy vibe to it and there was definitely good chemistry with Nia Long and Larenz Tate. And hey, these were the times when Bill Bellamy was popular!

The CD starts out with a Tate's poem from the movie, lyrically 'impressing' Nia Long's character. But then it's followed up with one of my favorite songs that to me captures how you feel when despite how hard you try, you fall in love - "Hopeless". The music, the words, the arrangement is great in it's simplicity. That cut's followed up with Lauryn Hill's "Sweetest Thing", which is nostalgic to me because it was before her wildly popular solo debut album would come out in 1998. Remember Xscape? Well they feature here with "In the Rain", a decent enough track but not the strongest of highlights for the album. Other than "Hopeless", that title is reserved for "Inside My Love" and "You Move Me". "Inside My Love" is redone off of the old Minnie Ripperton version from the mid seventies, and IMO Trina Broussard did a very good job with it. But still Minnie's version sends chills up and down my spine. Meanwhile Cassandra Wilson's "You Move Me" features her rich, deep voice with a soulful smooth and slow snap. The CD winds out with a poem recited by Nia Long from the movie, but that is preceeded by one of Coltrane's best "In a Sentimental Mood", which fits the full atmosphere of the film.

I definitely recommend this CD. 8 years later it's stood the test of time. It shows how beautiful music can come together if the general sense of a soundtrack and compilation fit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excuse Me I'll Have Another Glass Of Wine Please October 14, 2004
By SlimD
Format:Audio CD
Hello I cannot see why anyone would give this album anything but *****. This was hands down one of the best soundtracks of the 90's to groove to. Its perfect for a cocktail party, making love or just enjoying yourself. Even thought this album is more than 7 years old it still sounds refreshing . I cannot find another soundtrack to come close. I highly recommend this album to many great songs to miss out on .

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Soundtrack October 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This hands down is my favorite soundtrack. I am on my 2nd copy and I absolutely love it. Songs like 'Sweetest Thing,' 'In a Sentimental Mood,' 'Sumthin' Sumthin': Mellosmoothe,' and 'Girl' make this the best CD to chill with a glass of wine or clean the house to I love it

4.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent and sensual music June 7, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I rented this movie last month and just had to purchase the soundtrack to prolong the good memories. This CD is worth its price for Darius' Poem alone. Let me tell you, if any man ever laid a rap like that on me I would just about swoon.
Now I'm a child of hip hop and love that whole scene, but sometimes I want to chill with something mellow. Not that vulgar bump and grind drivel, but music that seduces your soul. This CD definitely provides that with a variety of neo soul, Jazz and R&B selections. This music is sexy without being explicit and conveys yearning without whining. As Erykah Badu would say "This is grown folks' music."
Maxwell's "Sumthin, Sumthin" remix is lush, languid and sultry. That falsetto is achingly sweet. Lauryn Hill is excellent, as usual, on "The Sweetest Thing." I'm feeling her lyrics about conflicted love that you can't explain,ignore or will away. And I like variety provided by the uptempo groove of "I Like It" by the Brand New Heavies. If you enjoy good music, you can't go wrong with this selection.
