Barnes & Noble - Dawn Sutter Madell
Friends has been a tastemaker since the beginning -- just ask any of the women who went out and got the "Rachel" haircut. As with the first Friends soundtrack, this second companion to the sitcom carries out the styles and jokes of those ever-popular 20-somethings. Fans will recognize "Smelly Cat" by Chrissie Hynde and Lisa Kudrow from the show. Otherwise, this disc intersperses sound bites from the show with unreleased tracks from hip alternative rock and pop groups. Think of it this way: If you found a mix tape in Rachel's room, these songs might be on it. So if you identify with the "Friends" aesthetic, you'll be a sucker for these fun, alternative tunes. ...

Fans will recognize "Smelly Cat" by Chrissie Hynde and Lisa Kudrow from the show.

Think of it this way: If you found a mix tape in Rachel's room, these songs might be on it. So if you identify with the "Friends" aesthetic, you'll be a sucker for these fun, alternative tunes. Standouts include rock songs like Smash Mouth's take on Let's Active's power-pop gem "Every Word Means No," Duncan Sheik's "View from the Outside," and Robbie Williams's cover of the Pet Shop Boys' "I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind of Thing," as well as the pure pop of Lisa Loeb's "Summer." Penelope Houston's duet with Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day on "Angel & the Jerk" is a punk hit, but Thor-El's rap/reggae song "Friends Till the End I'll Be There for You," which samples the original theme song, is a dud.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
When Friends Again, the second soundtrack to Friends, was released in November 1999, the show was sailing at a creative peak, but it wasn't as hip to like the show as it was in 1995, when the first soundtrack appeared. Consequently, there aren't as many heavy-hitters this time around -- no REM, Lou Reed, k.d. lang, Joni Mitchell, Hootie & the Blowfish, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Grant Lee Buffalo, or Paul Westerberg, although the Pretenders make another appearance, duetting with Phoebe on "Smelly Cat." The very fact that Chrissie Hynde singing "Smelly Cat" is the superstar attraction on Friends Again should signal that this wasn't really designed to be a blockbuster, and that's fine, because what's here isn't half-bad. True, only a handful of songs truly stand out, but the second-runs -- including the Smashing Pumpkins soundalike Deckard, a solid SemiSonic cut, 8stops7, the Waltons, and Duncan Sheik's "View From the Other Side" -- are all pleasant. The highlights are all really fun too: Smash Mouth tears up Let's Active's "Every Word Means No," proving that they really do deeply love that new wave after all; Lisa Loeb's "Summer," a glistening little pop tune, is her best in a while; Billie Joe Armstrong & Penelope Houston's "Angel & the Jerk" is more energetic than this soundtrack deserves; and Robbie Williams' take on the Pet Shop Boys' "I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind of Thing" is every bit as enjoyable as you'd expect. In fact, the only thing that doesn't really work is Thor-El's bizarre dance-cum-dancehall reworking of the Friends theme "I'll Be There for You," plus the endless dialogue bridges they may be funny on the show, but isolated snippets on a record just aren't that entertaining. Yes, it's a collection blatantly designed to appeal to the show's late twentysomething/thirtysomething audience, but the key is that it works. Much of this music may not be on Friends, but it makes for an entertaining record that complements the show as well as, if not more than, the original soundtrack. And that means it's worth a listen for fans.
