4.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional Soundtrack March 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
For the most part, I am a music fan who tends to disregard or ignore soundtrack releases. Soundtracks tend to be merely average in a number of cases and are easy to disregard. However, occasionally there is that soundtrack that is better than average. Tyler Perry's MADEA'S FAMILY REUNION soundtrack is a cut above the rest providing a brief but great mix of jazz, hip-hop, gospel, and smooth silky R&B.

Brian McKnight brings his smooth soul power on the opening track "Find Myself In You". It is the usual Brian McKnight performance that shows off the greatness of the unfairly fading McKnight (his last two albums have missed the 500,000 mark where album sales are concerned which is unfortunate). One can't help but to feel the groove of the beautiful mid-tempo R&B tune.

In a surprise hit, LL Cool J raps over a sample with the help of the powerhouse gospel duo Mary Mary. An initial listen may say to the listener that this is just an average track, but upon continual listen, you begin to feel the groove and begin to feel that passion of LL's rhymes and the soulfulness of sisters Mary Mary.

"Everyday (Family Reunion)" is a nice ensemble track featuring contributed vocals by Yolanda Adams, Chaka Khan, Gerald LeVert, and Carl Thomas. Perhaps the highlight track and the instant attention getter is the contribution by long lost R&B vocalist Johnny Gill who provides perhaps the star performance on the smooth, soulful "You For Me (The Wedding Song)". Gill shows that it is time for the Luther Vandross motivated singers to return with the quiet-storm approach of R&B. True, it isn't the best or most memorable R&B performance of the year, but it is definitely a great performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Mix of Artists March 8, 2006
Format:Audio CD
If you enjoyed the movie Madea's Family Reunion you may want to go out and pick up the album's soundtrack. The soundtrack is a nice blend of old and new. The 10 track compilation brings together old school and new school. New R&B singer Kem brings the track "Tonight," to the set. Brian McKnight opens up the album with the song "Find Myself In You." The classic Al Green song "Love and Happiness" is featured on the soundtrack as is the super group song "Everyday (Family Reunion)." This song brings together Chaka Kahn, Carl Thomas, Gerald Levert, and Yolanda Adams. Gerald's father is also included on the set as The O'Jays song "Family Reunion" is featured on the set. The Madea's Family Reunion Soundtrack didn't get too deep into hip-hop, or as my son says, "they didn't rap it up." The only hip-hop star featured on the set is LL Cool J who is featured on the song "We're Gonna Make It," along with gospel duo Mary Mary. Overall, it's a nice compilation of songs that you could play at your own family reunion or anytime you want to listen to some nice music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great soundtrack, but... March 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
...I'm pretty disappointed that the song that the lady in the restaurant was singing. Given she only had a small part, but her voice was beautiful and the song she was sing was too smooth. After doing a little research, I was able to pull up very little information on her. Her name is Philipa Williams and the song she was perfoming was 'Look In the Mirror'. Had this song been on the soundtrack, I would have definitely given it 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soul Food... Madea's Way February 26, 2006
By Nisha
Format:Audio CD
This is a good soundtrack which compliments the movie very well... The songs remind you of various scenes that will keep the movie on your mind.

Brian McKnight has the first track which is a smooth groove with a Marvin Gaye type sound. LL Cool J and Mary Mary have a son called, "We're Gonna Make It" that is very postive and uplifting which reminds us that LL is still the reigning King of Rap. Chaka Khan does "Keep Your Head Up" which opens the movie and reminds us to keep our hearts free and heads clear to make good judgements. She sounds so good on this track and it flows naturally like old times. Kem has a duet which is HOT called "Tonight" and they are harmonizing til the end. The various artist track is called "Everyday" which is about the Family Reunion. Al Green does "Love & Happiness" which reminds me of the Grits scene. Now when I seen Johnny Gill in the movie singing the Wedding Song called "You for Me" my heart dropped and the tears started to flow. This is truly a beautiful song and I have missed Johnny. The O'Jays also brought some old school to the soundtrack and Will Downing & Rachelle Ferrell have tracks as well. Overall, this is good music that warms the heart and soul while reminding us that we can laugh and enjoy a movie and music without volience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Gill Makes it Worth the Money!!! February 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Johnny Gill singing "You For Me" makes this cd worth the money. This has got to be the best wedding song of the year! The beautiful ending of this song is that jazzy, smooth, Johnny Gill that I love the best. If you haven't heard this song, you owe it to yourself to enjoy this classic, romantic performance by one of our all-time greatest R&B crooners!!!

Brian McKnight does a Marvin Gaye sounding vocal on "Find Myself in You" that is one of his most enjoyable vocals in a while. I don't care much for the lyrics, but his vocals carry the song.

Chaka Khan's performance on "Keep Your Head Up" is a softer, gentler Chaka and works very, very well with the great concept and lyrics of this song.

Not too thrilled with the rest of the CD, but still worth the price of the cd since they aren't doing a single for Johnny Gill's song and it, alone, is worth my money!!!
