Overview

Of all the blockbusters to hit the megaplex in summer 2003, none looks to be more packed with purposefully silly fun than the big-screen, big-hair sequel Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. This over-the-top soundtrack more than lives up to that promise as well, with tunes like Pink's aptly titled "Feel Good Time," which practically bounces off the walls with beat-savvy energy. Nickelback and Kid Rock team up for a badass take on Elton John's punch-drunk classic "Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting)," while David Bowie revisits his own heyday with a newly recorded rendition of "Rebel, Rebel." The biggest kick comes from the least-known source -- Detroit's Electric Six, whose loopy, infectious "Danger! High Voltage!" sizzles with disco-punk sensuality (helped along by backing vocals from Jack White of the White Stripes). The disc is fleshed out with a passel of diverse oldies, ranging from the arena-rock anthems of Loverboy and Journey to dance-floor ditties from the likes of Andy Gibb and MC Hammer. Still, the disc is fueled primarily by the octane provided by the new material, and that's powerful enough to allow it to hit... well, Full Throttle. Dave Sprague

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Much like the soundtrack to the first Charlie's Angels movie, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle features a nearly irresistible mix of old and new rock, pop, and disco that's equally kitschy and stylish. Within its first four songs, the soundtrack includes two of 2003's most infectious singles. Pink's Beck-penned "Feel Good Time" recalls the funky pop of Prince, War, and, of course, his own Midnite Vultures work; it may be her sexiest and most self-assured performance yet. Electric Six's "Danger! High Voltage," meanwhile, remains one of the year's most unabashedly fun singles, as well as the perfect segue to some of the soundtrack's guiltier pleasures, such as Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer," Journey's "Any Way You Want It," and MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This." Nas featuring Pharrell's "Nas' Angels...The Flyest" is also something of a guilty pleasure: Equal parts silly and sexy, it's another clever Neptunes production, fusing belly dancing music with Nas and Pharrell's swaggering rap. Nickelback and Kid Rock's collaboration on Elton John's "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" doesn't fare quite as well, however; the track feels heavy and uninspired where the original was nimble and clever (and just as much of a "rock" song). The disco preoccupation of the first soundtrack continues on the sequel, particularly on Andy Gibb's "I Just Wanna Be Your Everything" and Donna Summer's "Last Dance," although it also finds room for sleek pop like Edwyn Collins' "A Girl Like You," as well as a recent version of David Bowie's "Rebel Rebel" that's intriguingly moody but lacks the immediate impact of the original. Overall, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle is a fun, summery collection of music from a fun summer movie; like all things connected with the Charlie's Angels movies, it works best when you don't think about it too much.

I just watched the movie today and got very interested in buying the soundtrack. What is my surprise now to find out that the Prodigy songs that I heard on the movie are not on the CD. I can only say I am very disappointed and will not buy the CD for that reason.

I think the first soundtrack was a little better. In this second soundtrack the songs are good, but there are missing some tracks which are relevant in the movie, like Prodigy, "My Sharona" from The Snacks and "What a Feeling" 80's big hit. It's nice to hear again some good back beats, but there are too many, and the cd loses some of the energy that the movie has.

I loved some of the music from the movie (especially the high tempo tracks) and was disappointed when much of the music I liked wasn't on the soundtrack. The soundtrack focused way too much on the romantic music from the dance scenes and romance scenes. I mean, come on, where's the awesome tracks like Prodigy's wild "Breathe" and "Firestarter," the Who's funky "Who Are You?" and the Deltones' "Misirlou," not to mention the perennial favorite the "Pink Panther Theme?" Like Frank said, the soundtrack lost some of the energy that the movie had.
