With a new movie on the horizon, there's a new soundtrack for "Sex and the City" fans to enjoy. I have to say that having listened to the first movie's two volumes worth of music, this is one soundtrack I feel like I could have on replay for a while. Yes, not all of the tracks are strong and repeat-worthy (ahem, Liza Minelli's take on Beyoncé's 'Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)') but to me, "Sex and the City 2" is a pretty decent, well put together collection of songs. There's a little bit of everything style wise - some old classic standards like "Sunrise, Sunset" and "If I Ever Would Leave You" performed by the 'Sex and the City' Men's Choir to accompany a big unexpected engagement, some tracks with an Arabian/Middle Eastern flair to accompany the much hyped exotic trip that's promoted in the movie's trailers, and some appearances by current artists like Dido, Alicia Keys and a duet between Jennifer Hudson and Leona Lopez. There's a wide range of music featured on this soundtrack, unlike in the first movie's tracks that all sounded a bit too similar and tried hard to feature off-the-wall artists. This sounds like a real movie soundtrack, not just music you'd expect to hear in the television show. I liked the vibe of the album: it's far more lighter, fun and exciting unlike the first movie's music that felt a bit darker, moodier, depressing to fit the movie's plot.

The Good: Even though there are a lot of cover songs featured, the songs are arranged differently or given a fresh new outlook. Take for instance the often-covered and sung "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered".

The soundtrack to the new "Sex and the city 2" movie aims to please everyone, displaying a diverse collection with similar sounds grouped together.

Opening is Alicia Keys' remake of Blondie's "Rapture" which starts off similar to the original (with Lauryn Hill-style "Yeahs" and "I like that") but where the original had Debbie Harry rapping about a man from Mars, Keys raps about Carrie and her pals. The final minute takes on a chilled Dance sound which is followed by a beautiful haunting Dance number by Dido "Everything to lose".

Cee-lo's "Language of love" starts off with some chanting in some exotic language before a breezy summery Soul song sweeps in. This is followed by Erykah Badu's lilting Neo Soul "Window seat", the one with that infamous video.

Following are a pair of Arabic Pop songs, "Kidda" by Natacha Atlas, and "Euphrates dream" by Michael McGregor.

Next is Liza Minelli's remake of Beyoncé's "Single ladies" which largely stays true to the original till the bridge where strings and horns sweep in and transform it to a Jazzy Broadway-style song, especially with her quivering husky vocals. Following is the rythmically similar and catchy "Can't touch it" by Ricki-Lee who even manages to sound like Beyoncé.

Following are a pair of power ballads, Alicia Keys' piano-driven "Empire state of mind (Part II broken down)", and a fiery duet "Love is your color" by Jennifer Hudson (who also appeared on the first soundtrack and movie) & Leona Lewis.

i really enjoyed the movie and was hoping that i would like the cd as much. some of the tracks are great-but the "bonus" from liza minelli is awful-the woman cannot sing and something else could have been included instead. did like most of the tracks though. (knew what i was getting since i paid attention to the score when i watched the movie)

I have to say that I enjoy the songs on this soundtrack better then the first. It is a fun CD to play in the car or while doing chores around the house. I could of done without all the songs from the Sex and the City male choir, I tend to skip through those. For the price of the CD it is worth it so enjoy!

Looooved the soundtrack to the first movie... so I had high hopes for this one. I was slightly under-whelmed. I don't like the tracks where the Men's Choir is singing. To me, that's what ruins it.

While I lve many or a few of the tunes, there are just as many that I like to skip. And my cd seems to not like that....it no longer plays properly and it seems to spin around and play nothing and skip and basically does what it wants when it wants, though every now and then it will play what I want it to. I am probably one of the few who enjoy the opening, Rapture remix, and the next two songs. I often then though want to skip a few to Alicia Keye's take on New York...and then skip and then...and then skip. So sometimes it will play and sometimes when I try to go to a song it just whirls wordlessly. Now it does this thing where it skips around all on its own. I have tried cleaning it and changing the disk player, all to no avail. That said, I guess what it really means is that the great songs you want to listen to all the time are somewhat few and far between, and the quality of the disc makes risky behaviour if you want you disc to last more than a few weeks. My suggestion would be to download the songs you want to listen to, and enjoy! Amazon used to be very good about ensuring the quality of their products, I am having difficulty with this one. It is one of those it is so difficult to deal with I'll probably just give up and think twice before buying a music product from them again.
