All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
In 2007, some 16 years after Alan Parker's adaptation of Roddy Doyle's novel turned into a feel-good cult sensation, Universal released a two-disc Deluxe Edition of The Commitments soundtrack. The first disc contains the original 1991 soundtrack, the second its 1992 sequel The Commitments, Vol. 2, with the two rounded out with five selections from the group's lead singer Andrew Strong's 1993 album Strong. All this music is of a piece -- it's all competent, respectful tribute to classic '60s R&B and soul -- so it makes for a consistent deluxe edition; indeed, for big fans of The Commitments who don't already own the two soundtracks, this is a nice way to get ...

    Great Versions of Some Classic Funk/Rock Hits

    This is an awesome collection of songs. Anyone who has seen the movie "The Committments" already knows what to expect, but you don't have to know the movie to truly enjoy this collection. There are a lot of well know hits along with some original scores or lesser known songs. There is a lot of talent in the singers and the musicians and it's almost impossible to stay still when these songs start playing. I highly reccommend this purchase.
