Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The soundtrack to the amusing blaxploitation parody Undercover Brother wisely keeps it to the classics, adding only three new tracks -- the excellent blaxploitation homage "Undercova Funk (Give Up the Funk)" by Snoop Dogg, the solid Lil' J cut "I Need Luv (2002)," and Stanley Clarke's absolutely brilliant "Theme From Undercover Brother" -- to a set of 11 classic funk and soul songs from the '70s. There are a lot of familiar titles here -- "Pick Up the Pieces," "Brick house," "Play That Funky Music (White Boy)," "Say It Loud (I'm Black and I'm Proud)," "Love Train," "Ladies Night," etc. -- spiced by just a couple of smaller hits and cult favorites, but the music flows so well, it doesn't matter. This works well as a collection of classic funk and soul, and it offers a perfect aural souvenir of this movie, which makes it arguably the best soundtrack so far of the 2002 summer movie season.

This is truly a classic. It's a must have of some great dance tunes.
