Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that some songs that fly by quickly in the movie are heard in their entirety on this CD, raising its age-appropriateness stakes. It's still a fun compilation combining old and new tunes.

What's the story?

A couple of the songs on the ROBOTS SOUNDTRACK may not go over well with parents of young kids when heard in their entirety: Chingy's "Right Thurr," and Houston's "I Like That," for example. "Right Thurr" flies by so fast in the movie that it's barely noticeable, but Chingy's leering sexual innuendo feels inappropriate on an album marketed to kids. He manages to be simultaneously raunchy and boring, and brings the energy way down right after soul singer Ricky Fante's sparkling "Shine." Things pick up again with an infectious perk-fest: "Tell Me What You Already Did" by Fountains of Wayne, followed by "Wonderful Night" by Fatboy Slim. Then topping off all the excitement comes the James Brown classic, "Get Up Offa That Thing."

Is it any good?


The mix of music on this album makes for interesting listening. Among the highlights are tunes by War and by Earth, Wind & Fire; the one and only female lead vocal by Stacie Orrico; and the only real bit of actual soundtrack, "Robot City," a kind of electro-overture that references many different musical styles and is by far the most intriguing piece on the album. It all adds up to a fun, if inconsistent, dance-party record.
