Overview

The heartfelt collection of songs assembled for the soundtrack to Jennifer Lopez's latest dramatic love story, Angel Eyes, is just as endearing as the film. Highlights include country songbird LeAnn Rimes's surprisingly solid stab at techno-flavored dance-pop on "You Are," newcomer Tamara Walker's sentimental, k.d. lang-esque title track, and vocal trio Rare Blend's finger-snapping "Fly Away." Rounded out by Etta James's smoldering "Only Time Will Tell," Shemekia Copeland's bluesy "It's 2 A.M.," and pub-rock stalwart Nick Lowe's Ray Charles-flavored "You Inspire Me," Angel Eyes is a heavenly mix of eclectic music.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Unlike The Wedding Planner, the first J-Lo movie of 2001, there are no songs from Jennifer Lopez on the soundtrack to Angel Eyes. Perhaps that's because The Wedding Planner was designed to be a big multi-media extravaganza and Angel Eyes is a bit more serious, but in any case, some fans may be disappointed. Nevertheless, this soundtrack holds together well, blending together adult contemporary pop songs with classy offerings for the NPR set, ranging from Etta James and Shemekia Copeland to Nick Lowe's torch song "You Inspire Me" and Jon Hassell's deliberately Chet Baker-styled rendition of "Nature Boy." Much of the first half of the album is a little bland, but it picks up momentum as it goes along, and, sonically, it's all of a piece. This doesn't result in a memorable soundtrack, but it fits the tone of the movie (even if it isn't as compelling).
