Editorial Reviews

As could be ascertained from songs like "Play That Funky Music (White Boy)" and "Undercova Funk," the keyword for the nugget-filled Undercover Brother soundtrack is funk. In other words, prominently twanging bass lines, swinging saxophones and horns, and syncopated gymnastics abound on this instant party mix. Whether political (James Brown, Gil Scott-Heron), empowering women (Kool & the Gang, Cheryl Lynn), or championing good old-fashioned love (the O' Jays), the choice cuts included are timeless and (mostly) not too overplayed. Only when the album tries to modernize these classics does it lose its freshness. Snoop Dogg's version of "Undercova Funk" is successful thanks to guests like Bootsy Collins, but Lil' J's 2002 version of "I Need Luv" drags aimlessly for over six minutes, and the "Theme from Undercover Brother" is a pale cool-cat imitator. Nevertheless, the album is undoubtedly a perfect funk compilation for any occasion--just add grooviness and stir. --Annie Zaleski

The hysterical movie has given us a great supply of classic funk in this soundtrack. Overall the funk selections make this soundtrack quite similar to the awesome "Pure Funk" series of various artist collections. However, there are a few surprises which make this soundtrack worthy even if you already have the "Pure Funk" discs, like Gil Scott-Heron's street masterpiece "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised," Carl Carlton's groovy "She's a Bad Mama Jama," and Cheryl Linn's classic disco jam "Got to Be Real," the originals of which are rather hard to track down. Another bonus is the new title theme in which Bootsy Collins and company bring Snoop Dogg back to his true roots in the heavy uncut funk. Add to that the classic funks jams by The Commodores, Wild Cherry, and Earth Wind & Fire and you got enough funk to become a swingin' secret agent yourself.

This soundtrack is amazing! It is almost as amazing as the movie. Every song on this soundtrack has that 70's groove that nothing can nothing can duplicate. Even if youre not a huge fan of the movie (which you should be), the music is incredible. Once you've had Undercover Brother, there is no other.

this cd rocks. it has the best songs from the movie and they're good to sing along to. the best songs include " ladies night", "the theme song" and all of the funk songs. the only song i think should be on there is the famous "ebony and ivory" song which is sung by undercover brother as a dork and the white-she devil. but if you're looking for a well constructed soundtrack to a hilarious and classical movie, this is worth the money.

This is a compact disc that provides an abbreviated history of 70's soul, and two unexpected gems (Undercover Funk / Bootsy Collins & Snoop Dogg...Whatever Happened / Earth, Wind, & Fire). Those two songs alone were worth the price of the CD, and frankly, that's why I purchased it. I am not a huge fan of rap, but I am appreciative of Snoop's "in and out" short dialogue while Bootsy drove the rewrite of his song "Give Up The Funk" the way you drive a Rolls Royce...with style. I am equally impressed with EWF and their contribution to the soundtrack. I nearly forgot how funky they could be. Thankfully, they reminded me.

I went to high school and college in the seventies and the soundtrack from Undercover Brother was a lot of the music I listened to during that time and I really enjoyed hearing it again.

awesome sound track and excellent movie........anyone that grew up in the 70's has to see this movie. it portrays all of the countries little perks and shows them in a comedic light , which in turn lets us know how silly they are and that we , as ,human beings should take a look at ourselves and realize that we should live together and enjoy what we have ., also that black and white people can live with one another with out hate and enjoy doing things together....................................... while making fun of each others little stupid things they do and say.
