Robots [Original Soundtrack]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
More of a musical tie-in than an actual soundtrack, Robots features a decent mix of soul, funk, pop, rap and rock that doesn't have much to do with the movie's story. However, the album does create a feel-good, party-time mood that will probably please most kids and adults: stone-cold classics like War's "Low Rider," Earth, Wind & Fire's "Love's Dance" and a remix of James Brown's "Get Up Offa That Thing" work well with newer tracks such as Fatboy Slim's "Wonderful Night" and Chingy's "Right Thurr" although it's more than a little strange to hear a song with lyrics like "I wouldn't mind hitting that from the back" on the soundtrack to a movie that's largely for kids....

More of a musical tie-in than an actual soundtrack, Robots features a decent mix of soul, funk, pop, rap and rock that doesn't have much to do with the movie's story. However, the album does create a feel-good, party-time mood that will probably please most kids and adults: stone-cold classics like War's "Low Rider," Earth, Wind & Fire's "Love's Dance" and a remix of James Brown's "Get Up Offa That Thing" work well with newer tracks such as Fatboy Slim's "Wonderful Night" and Chingy's "Right Thurr" although it's more than a little strange to hear a song with lyrics like "I wouldn't mind hitting that from the back" on the soundtrack to a movie that's largely for kids. Chingy reappears on Houston's just-okay "I Like That," which also features Nate Dogg and I-20; Ricky Fante's retro-soul single "Shine" fares better, although at times it sounds a little too concertedly vintage. Though the album often feels like it's trying to capture the ears of older listeners, Steriogram's "Walkie Talkie Man" is a yappy, hyperactive track that only kids could love. The rest of the rock included here feels like an afterthought: Fountains of Wayne's "Tell Me What You Already Did" represents their power-poppy, They Might Be Giants-esque side, and Gomez' "Silence" seems to be here mostly because of the big, buzzy synths running through the song. "Robot City," a collaboration between John Powell and the Blue Man Group, is Robots' final track, and is among its best. Combining surf guitar, orchestral bits and, of course, lots of weird percussion, it's prickly and playful, and -- most importantly -- actually sounds like the kind of music cute, anthropomorphized robots would listen to and make. Neither terrible nor great, Robots feels like a missed opportunity; though it does what it sets out to do, that ends up being not very much.
