Sex and the City 2 [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
The soundtrack for Sex and the City 2 plays out pretty much how one would expect. Alicia Keys beefs up the disco quotient of Blondie's "Rapture" by adding a "girls out on the town" rap breakdown and introducing a slippery, Middle Eastern cadence to the chorus that dutifully ties in the film's Abu Dhabi location, Jennifer Hudson and Leona Lewis slow things down with the future American Idol standard "Love Is Your Color," and Liza Minnelli treats Beyoncé's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" like a cruise-ship stage version of Victor/Victoria. It's a big, bawdy girl power collection (interludes are provided by the Sex & the City Men's Choir) that's undeniably ...

It's a big, bawdy girl power collection (interludes are provided by the Sex & the City Men's Choir) that's undeniably fun and rarely takes itself too seriously, but whoever came up with the idea of asking the four lead actresses to sing "I Am Woman" needs to write Helen Reddy a letter of apology every day for the next hundred years.

    Some Real Good Music!

    The entire album is entirely different from the feel of the first movie- We see new performers emerge such as Dido, but the 2 Greatest moments on this soundtrack have to be all 4 Women singing 'I Am Woman'- truly magnificant- and Alicia Keyes Soulful, Tear-Jerking 'Empire State of Mind, Part II", which seems to be a staple in the movie, having appeared in the trailers and so forth, but this slowed down version of the song is more powerful, I feel than the duet version with Keyes and Jay-Z. I was disappointed The Source feat. Candi Staton's "You Got The Love" did not make the soundtrack- that song within itself has become the SEX AND THE CITY anthem. I wished they would have included it in the film and on the soundtrack, it would have made alot of fans happy....very happy and very surprised. But the album we have here is livly, entertaining, danceable, it harbors a bit of everything and that's why I'm giving it 5 stars! Great album....Hope there is a Volume 2 coming soon......
