Editorial Reviews

Bubbles, Blossom, and Buttercup sure know how to pick 'em. Their Heroes & Villains might be the coolest soundtrack of the summer of 2000, as well as the best repellant for Townsville's evil monkey, Mojo Jojo. Inspired by the Cartoon Network's The Powerpuff Girls series, this delicious disc delivers a handful of exceptional contemporary pop-rock tunes customized especially for the occasion. And the music's so good that it may supersede the cartoon itself. Produced by Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh and Bob Casale, with fave groups picked by Powerpuff Girls creator Craig McCracken, Heroes & Villains has nary a clunker in its bunch. Disc highlights include the Beatles-like "Walk and Chew Gum" (Optiganally Yours), Komeda's killer "B.L.O.S.S.O.M.," Apples in Stereo's hook-infested "Signal in the Sky (Let's Go," Shonen Knife's hard-edged "Buttercup (I'm A Super Girl)," and a fun story thread that runs between songs. Of course there's Devo's own simian cheer lead, "Go Monkey Go," clearly another de-evolutionary breakdown at the hands of the mindless monkey Mojo. Play it again and again at maximum power. --Martin Keller

Like the cartoon show it is based on, "The Powerpuff Girls - Heroes and Villains" is an instant classic, and may well be the coolest and most-played CD you buy this year! From the opening snippet and Devo's "Go Monkey Go" (all cheesy 80's synths and lyrics Boojii Boy might have written twenty years ago) through to the extended version of Bis's hard-rock end theme (reason enough for fans to buy the album, having two full verses for the first time), this release just does not put a foot wrong.
The artists involved were all hand-picked by Craig McCracken, creator of the series, who also contributes liner notes. It's not a question of which tracks on the CD are good and which aren't...but rather which are good and which are awesome. Stand-out tracks for me would have to be the hi-tech wonders of "The Fight" by Cornelius (listen LOUD with a good pair of headphones and prepare to be blown away) and the other Bis track, "Fight The Power" - featuring a huge Chemical-Brothers-style meltdown in the middle. And who could resist lyrics like "You've got the brainpower of a sunflower"?
Aside from the fact that the ORIGINAL "Love Makes The World Go Round" (sung by the Powerpuff Girls) really should have been included, this WEA/Rhino release is a perfect CD, full of variety and talent, with a fun storyline to match. What more needs to be said?

This CD is just incredible! The genre style is dream pop-indie. Songs like "Bubbles" by Dressy Bessy, "Don't Look Down" by The Sugarplastic, and "Signal in the Sky (Let's Go!)" by The Apples in Stereo, will wake you up with it's healing power if you're down, as well as float you away to the clouds if you're tense. Either way, the majority of songs here are powerful and plain irresistable. This is also stuff you'd really want your kids to listen to.

It has credibility whether you really are a kid with a sweet tooth for infectious music or an alienated teen like I was when I fell in love with this record. "Fight the Power" by Bis and "The Fight" by Cornelius are highly danceable and fully forced pop and techno, "B.L.O.S.S.O.M." by Komeda and "Pray for the Girls" by Frank Black are two more choice tracks which both give a kick and are very thoughtful or a little brooding. And finally "Friends Win" by Bill Doss has an interesting 80's sound to it that reminds me of Human League and/or Haircut 100.

I didn't care for "Walk & Chew Gum" by Optiganally Yours or "Go Monkey Go!" by Devo, but they're good songs.

I love the show, but I was still sure I was hallucinating when I stumbled upon this and read who was on it. Apples in Stereo?? Frank Black?? Dressy Bessy?? CORNELIUS?? All singing about POWERPUFF GIRLS-NESS?? This is perhaps one of the coolest THINGS I have ever seen. Seriously. Now they need to do a Samurai Jack album with Cibo Matto and Soul Coughing and such. Rock on.

There have been a few notable tie-ins to animated TV series. Some, like South Park's Chef Aid, boasts an eclectic collection of songs from the series done by alternative, rap, and punk artists. In the case of The Powerpuff Girls:Heroes And Villains, the concept is different, as the songs here are inspired by the series, and with the exception of the intro and end theme, are original. The songs assume that one is in on the Powerpuff Girls, otherwise references to Mojo Jojo and the Gangreen Gang would be lost on the uninitiated.
Interspersed between the songs is a bit by bit story of the Powerpuff Girls against Mojo Jojo.
At least Mojo gets a song rooting him on. That is the upbeat "Go Monkey Go" by Devo. Q: Are they not human, A: No they are Mojo.
"Signal In The Sky" by The Apples In Stereo is a nice dose of Beatles-ish pop-alternative and one of the highlights of this collection. Anyone see the music video for this?
Optiganally Yours' "Walk & Chew Gum" is a pleasing oddity of 1930's/1940's lo-fi jazz and describes the Mayor as someone who can't, well, do the actions of title track at the same time. The lyrics here has the mayor down to a tee: "Thank goodness for the Powerpuffs/Bubbles, Blossom, and Buttercup make it easy to do my job." That is a massive understatement right there.
With "All right, Mo-Jerk! How'd you like a taste of Buttercup?" introduced by the toughest Powerpuff, comes the best song on Heroes On Villains, Shonen Knife's "Buttercup (I'm A Super Girl)," which is the punkest song I've heard the Yamano sisters do. The adrenaline fury of the drums and guitar reflect Buttercup's reputation as the toughest fighter perfectly.

An alternative twist on your saturday morning! No, that's not your local college radio station you're listening's "Heroes and Villans"..and this baby packs a punch!
Trapped in a Powerpuff girls episode, you are musically transported through just a typical day-in-the-life of fighting crime and stuff, with the ultra-hip side of the college music scene as your soundtrack.
Ex-Pixie Frank Black's "Pray For The Girls" and Shonen Knife's "Buttercup" are scene stealers on this record, along with the techno-blitz of Bis' "Fight The Power." Of course, the cute and clever Powerpuff theme is included as well.
Not your average top-40 single machine, but a fun collection of odd and quirky tunes that will make you wanna fight evil and smile all at the same time. What a bargain!
