SONIC DEATH MONKEY Soundtrack Reviews - Sex and the City

No sex please, we're monkeys
by Michael Collins

Let's go shopping. Shopping for relationships, New York, girls, cosmopolitans, sex and soundtracks. It's time for the Sex and the City soundtrack.

Are you always happy when you walk out the store? If global warming teaches us anything itís that shopping makes us happy. Fergie knows this and she letís us know in a flurry of pleasant beats with Labels of Love. Itís all about the clothes. Itís also all about the chalk board finger nail scratching excruciating singing. Letís put Fergie into a clothes store and well away from a microphone.

I did watch some of the original TV series and the clothes thing went right over my head. I missed the importance of clothes completely.

With tracks like the groovy chilled disco of, The Look of Love, and the shouting of, All Dressed In Love, I guess I was way off the mark. Here was I thinking that it was about story or something. What was I thinking?

I had thought the show was about some New York women. Seems I got this one right. Morningwood rock out with New York Girls and tell us that it is indeed about New Yorkers and that it seems they all come from all over the place to live in New York. The Weepies let us know that all these girls are hot too.

Another thing that I picked up on in the show was that it was about relationships. The full gamut from a relationshipís beginning to end was on display. That is reflected in this soundtrack. Jemís, Itís Amazing, has some nice head nodding beats. Itís just on the verge of being too poppy, but the beats save it. This track is just one of many that address the subject of relationships.

The aptly titled, Bliss, is a chilled out bliss-a-thon and will be perfect for those romantic evenings in. Al Green of course also fulfils this role with all the assurance that his experience brings to the table with, How Can You Mend A Broken Heart. Itís probably the best thing of the soundtrack. Greenís effort is so great that it almost makes up for that dodgy start we got from Fergie Ė Almost.

Fashion is often about recycling, so naturally thereís some recycling in the movie, and thus the soundtrack. How Deep Is Your Love is redone by The Bird and the Bee, and itís not too bad at all. It doesnít make me want to run screaming in the opposite direction so that makes it an improvement on the original. And a recycling of Run DMCís Walk This Way is always welcome.

This soundtrack is not as girly as one may have expected. Thereís some good enough track to counter balance the bad ones. This soundtrack is as a solid effort as the film.
