Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

( 4 )

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Rebecca Wallwork
What could possibly be better than a smashing, '60s-skewed sound track, baby? Not much, according to the masterminds behind the globe-trotting, babe-shagging spy Austin Powers. He has hit screens again this summer, fully equipped with a generation-spanning collection of psychedelic songs from Madonna, REM, Lenny Kravitz, and Burt Bacharach and Elvis Costello. There's even a previously unreleased BBC version of the Who's "My Generation" -- groovy! REM manages to sound unlike itself on a cover of Tommy James's "Draggin' the Line," Melanie G brands Cameo's "Word Up" with an undeniable Spice stamp in tandem with Timbaland, who produced the track, and Lenny Kravitz takes...

With Green Day, the Flaming Lips, and Scott Weiland rounding out the package -- not to mention Dr. Evil's hilarious cover of Will Smith's cover of "Just the Two of Us" -- THE SPY WHO SHAGGED ME is a trip you won't mind taking.
All Music Guide - Gina Boldman
Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me has an interesting mix of '60s cover songs and '90s songs that were influenced by that era, much like the Austin Powers soundtrack, and although this sequel has less charm and enthusiasm than the first Austin Powers album, its highlights make it memorable. Several heavy hitters don't quite deliver on the soundtrack: Lenny Kravitz does a funky, guitar-heavy remake of the Guess Who's "American Woman" that never really erupts like it should, while R.E.M. does a smooth but somewhat uninspired version of Tommy James' "Draggin the Line." The Who unnecessarily redo their own "My Generation," and inexplicably, Melanie B Scary Spice does a version of "Word Up" what does this 1986 song have to do with the '60s? that takes all the funk out of Cameo's groovy hit. The real highlights are Madonna's "Beautiful Stranger" mixed by William Orbit, who produced Ray of Light, which has a wonderful Beatles-meets-techno-lite feel; Quincy Jones' spacy redux of "Soul Bossa Nova"; and Burt Bacharach and Elvis Costello's classy and classic "I'll Never Fall in Love Again." Even Dr. Evil has his own track -- "Just the Two of Us," his own introspective take on the Will Smith hit which was a remake of the Bill Withers tune -- that pokes fun at Oprah and Jerry Maguire while praising Mini Me. These standouts make Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me a worthy purchase for fans of the Powers films and the '60s sound celebrated in them.

    A Mixed Bag

    Appropriate, perhaps, that the soundtrack to a movie whose primary plot-point has its main character going back in time to recover his mislaid ¿mojo¿ should feature modern-day recording artists covering a passel of yesteryear classics. Here, for instance, we have R.E.M. doing a run-through of Tommy James and the Shondells¿ ¿Draggin¿ the Line,¿ Lenny Kravitz making a pass at the Guess Who¿s ¿American Woman,¿ Big Blue Missile (with former STP lead singer Scott Weiland, no doubt on his latest furlough from pharmaceuticals) pointlessly noisifying the Zombies¿ ¿Time of the Season,¿ and, last and certainly least, the Spice Girls¿ oh-so-scary Melanie G. sticking a sickly Brit-ney spear into Cameo¿s once formidably funk-alicious ¿Word Up.¿ Of the above, only the R.E.M. does justice. The rest deserve arrest. Gag orders. Lethal injections. Anything to shut them up. Elsewhere, Elvis Costello gets caught crooning the Burt Bacharach/Hal David chestnut ¿I¿ll Never Fall In Love Again,¿ with Bacharach himself prostituting himself on piano. While the recorded result is hardly hellacious, it cannot hold a candle to the Dionne Warwick and Carpenters¿ versions of the `60s and `70s, respectively (perhaps if it had been that other Elvis, with Liberace contributing campy piano¿.) Other, somewhat kinder, cuts include Madonna¿s latest cut-and-paste ¿ but undeniably catchy ¿ collaboration with William Orbit, the undisputed Grand Poo-Bah of blips, bleats, and buzzing, busy fills. Green Day contribute an engagingly spoofy spy-film instrumental (one that would have been even more engaging if it had had the good sense to shut itself up some 60 seconds sooner, but no use quibbling over spilt milk). And fresh from Madonna¿s Maverick label stable: the new duo Lucy Nation ¿ whose lead singer sounds like an exact amalgam of Sheryl Crow and Shirley Manson, and whose included tune is just as solidly listenable as it is instantly forgettable. As soundtracks go, The Spy Who Shagged Me is hardly the worst and better than many. But unlike, say, the soundtrack to Todd Haynes¿ Velvet Goldmine, which attempts much the same modern-takes-on-classic-tracks trick and pulls it off with a vein-tappingly virtuosic ¿voilà!¿, Austin 2¿s prevalence of pale imitations and Cheez Wiz filler makes one long for the long-dead days of vinyl 45s and 8-track tapes. But all hope is not lost. In the whoring halls of Hollywood, successful sequels have a way of breeding less-successful sequels, and not every sequel sucks (The Godfather, Part II! The Empire Strikes Back! Aliens! Uh¿ The Godfather, Part II!) so maybe, just maybe, the third installment of the Austin Powers saga (no doubt destined to be entitled Austin Powers: The Man With the Golden Finger For Your Octopussy Only) will be the charm ¿ musically-speaking, at least. Hark! Is that Shirley Bassey I hear spy-styling in the distance? Eartha Kitt? Nancy Sinatra? Dean Martin? Dusty Springfield? Ahh¿. Dare to dream.
