Overview

When Nickelodeon's ruckus-raising Rugrats meet the nature-lovin' Wild Thornberrys on a deserted island, the result is a wild adventure with one rocking soundtrack! The Rugrats' third voyage onto the big screen finds their infamous energy matched with guitar-driven pop -- and plenty of surprises. American Hi-Fi get the party started with a pop-punk cover of the Police classic "Message in a Bottle," complete with wailing vocals. Spike the Dog, voiced by the award-winning actor Bruce Willis, barks out a duet with Siri the Leopard (the Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde) on "Big Bad Cat." This hilarious track pits cat against dog and was inspired by Ann-Maragret and Elvis Presley's 1964 classic Viva Las Vegas. Hynde plays up her dark, sultry voice, while. Willis proves to be one ruff dawg with a bluesy bark -- and that's a good thing! Bruce goes solo for his cover of Iggy Pop's "Lust for Life" and listeners young and old are sure to get revved up by the silly lyrics, rewritten for the 'Rats: "Here comes Spike the dog again / With babies and chimps / Got your talking girl / We're going on a road trip" and "Well, I'm just a modern dog / You've see me chasing my tail before / Got a lust for life." "Lizard Love" features Aerosmith and kid-centric vocals from bad-boy Steven Tyler -- be prepared for pint-sized air-guitar solos! Finally, the grand master of funk, George Clinton, reprises his hit "Atomic Dog," with thumpin' bass and a more than a few "woof woofs.". With star-studded highlights and a bit of jungle madness, Rugrats Go Wild, indeed, and kids will go crazy for this untamed disc.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
A cross between two of Nickelodeon's most popular cartoons, Rugrats and The Wild Thornberrys, Rugrats Gone Wild features a soundtrack that isn't quite as kid-oriented as the Rugrats movies but isn't quite as musically sophisticated as the soundtrack to The Wild Thornberrys movie. Along with songs by the characters in the movie -- including Bruce Willis and Chrissie Hynde, who play Spike and Siri, a pair of jungle cats -- the album features an eclectic array of funk, punk, and rock, including George Clinton's "Atomic Dog" and the Clash's "Should I Stay or Should I Go." The more contemporary songs don't fare as well -- Train's "She's on Fire" and American Hi-Fi's "Message in a Bottle" are anemic instead of anthemic. As for the original, movie-related songs, they vary widely in quality: Bruce Willis' songs are more fun than they have any right to be, particularly his duet with Hynde, "Big Bad Cat." Likewise, the Rugrats' "It's a Jungle Out Here" is surprisingly enjoyable. However, some of the songs, such as Angelica (Cheryl Chase) and Susie's (Cree Summer) "The Morning After" and "Dresses and Shoes (Precious & Few)," sound more annoying than appealing, at least to grownup ears. While the soundtrack might be a little disappointing as a whole, Rugrats Go Wild still has enough good moments to make it worthwhile for most fans of the movie.
