Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle Soundtrack
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this CD is much tamer than the movie (which is rated PG-13) -- parents will have to moderate kids who want the CD but who are still a bit young for all the flesh and innuendo that's in the movie....
What's the story?
The great thing about movie soundtrack compilations is variety, and CHARLIE'S ANGELS: FULL THROTTLE SOUNDTRACK gives us a lively mix of mostly familiar tunes from different rock & roll eras. There's something here for everyone. Contemporary artists and songs blend well with classic rock offerings. \"Feel Good Time\" (performed by Pink featuring William Orbit) samples Spirit's \"Fresh Garbage.\" \"Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting\" is given a fresh interpretation by Nickelback featuring Kid Rock -- its vanilla punk perkiness defuses any hint of real violence. The musical high point is \"Nas' Angels…the Flyest\" performed by Nas featuring Pharrell. The song intertwines a haunting, rhythmic Middle-Eastern-sounding chorus with imaginative, well-delivered rap verses.
Is it any good?
The track list for this amazing compilation of talents also includes songs by David Bowie (a new recording of "Rebel Rebel"), Electric Six, Bon Jovi, Journey, the Beach Boys, Loverboy, Edwyn Collins, Natalie Cole, MC Hammer, and disco chestnuts "I Just Want to Be Your Everything" by Andy Gibb, and "Last Dance" by Donna Summer. Over all, occasional mild sex or violence references in the lyrics are diluted by the iconic familiarity of most of these songs. As a whole, this CD is satisfying and fun.
