Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
The soundtrack to Bravo's hit reality show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy is packed with enough dance jams to get your Fab Five party started right. Setting the festive mood are a new song by Duran Duran ("Sunrise"), a Basement Jaxx remix ("Good Luck"), and a Chemical Brothers remix of Kylie Minogue's new single ("Slow"). Additionally, the disc features the American debut of Jamelia's smash U.K. hit "Superstar," an exclusive mashup that pits Fischerspooner vs. Billy Squier, Liz Phair's "Extraordinary," and exclusive remixes of Sting's "Never Coming Home" and Elton John's 1977 hit "Are You Ready for Love."

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Nothing escapes marketing so a soundtrack to the über-hit Queer Eye for the Straight Guy was to be expected. But for once the marketing department got it right. Of course, music means a lot to the show, and as pointed out in the liner notes by executive producers David Collins and David Metzler or as the Fab Five call them, "the Daves", it's been that way since Queer Eye's conception. They keep that high standard here, choosing tracks that are slick, edgy, and at very least, interesting. No big shock that dance music takes up the first half of the CD. Wide Life's "All Things" is the lone stereotypical floor-filler, but it's the show's theme and the unavoidable hook makes it easy to forgive this slight nod to the pedestrian. Then things get chic. The soulful "Good Luck" continues Basement Jaxx's series of stunning singles, the Chemical Brothers add some futuristic edge to a steamy Kylie Minogue track, and Ingrid's "You Promised Me" is one of those hooky and clever dance numbers that grabs you from first listen. The craze of mishmashing tunes doesn't escape the collection, here represented by a cheeky mix of Fischerspooner and Billy Squier that's as fun as it sounds. Then listeners slip into something more comfortable with the adult-oriented sounds of pop closing the set. A slight remix turns a mediocre Sting tune into a very good one, a glittery Liz Phair provides the only bit of angst, and a disco-esque Elton John doing his best Barry White impersonation brings listeners back to not-always-fabulous reality. Quippy and tip-filled liner notes are the icing on the cake, with caveats like Duran Duran were the first metrosexuals and cocktails should only be made with top-shelf liquors. That last tip sounds like something from Maxim or Playboy, so maybe everybody can get along after all, especially those listening to collections as swank and smart as this. [Queer Eye for the Straight Guy was also released in a limited edition with an extra DVD including tips on music buying, interviews, videos, and an appearance from the South Park kids.]

    BRAVO! Queer Eye Should Take Pride In This Class Act CD

    When I heard that there would be a soundtrack from "Queer Eye For the Straight Guy", I expected a CD full of club anthems that many associate with "gay" music. However, this CD surpassed all my expectations. The thought and care that went into producing this project really shine through (from the classy photo on the cover). I am most impressed with how the CD appeals to not only gay and lesbian audiences. It really has a well-rounded list of songs that any person could enjoy. Simply put, the CD is a soundtrack to our lives (regardless of if you're gay or not). This Limited Edition CD also features a bonus DVD with the ultra-sensual and avante-garde video of Kylie's "Slow". Many songs feature state-of-the-art remixers and producers. "All Things" spearheads the CD as the lead single and the song and video is fabulous. Every track is stellar. I also love "Superstar" from Jamelia who I did not know about until now. The song is really radio-friendly and Jamelia sounds amazing. There are some rare remixes (e.g., Kylie, Duran Duran, & Sting) on this disc that is worth getting the CD alone. The CD really is uplifting and diverse enough (e.g., Liz Phair & Elton) to not be easily dated in a year or two. All in all, Queer Eye has a lot to be proud of, and this CD is one of them. Now let's hope that things really do just keep getting better by going out and DOING something when it counts...NOW!
