Product Description

Product Description

Fresh from her 2004 Oscar win, Renée Zellweger reprises the title role in the romantic screen comedy Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. The film also boasts a sensational companion soundtrack from Geffen Records featuring great pop legends and newer rising stars, among them Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, Rufus Wainwright and Dido, Carly Simon, Jamie Cullum, Sting and Annie Lennox and more. With Nick Angel serving as music supervisor/executive producer, the soundtrack Bridget Jones the Edge of Reason is a pop music lover's delight. Newly recorded songs appearing on the CD include: a cover of Sade's song "Your Love Is King," by rising U.K. star Will Young; "Misunderstood," a new tune by Robbie Williams; "Everlasting Love," a newly recorded cover by Jamie Cullum, "Stop!," by UK artist Jamelia; Kate McGarrigle's "I Eat Dinner," recorded as a duet by her son Rufus Wainwright & Dido; and a newly recorded version of Sting's "We'll Be Together" by Sting and Annie Lennox. Other songs on the soundtrack include: "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" by Kylie Minogue; "Super Duper Love (Are You Diggin' On Me?)" from Joss Stone; "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word" by Mary J Blige; "Crazy In Love" by Beyonce; the classic "I'm Not In Love" by 10CC; Carly Simon's hit "Nobody Does It Better;" "I Believe In A Thing Called Love" from The Darkness; Minnie Ripperton's timeless "Loving You;" and "Bridget's Theme" by Harry Gregson Williams.

Amazon.co.uk

While it's cast largely in the same musical mould as its winning predecessor, there's a more palpable sense of romantic melancholy wafting through this soundtrack to the further misadventures of Rene Zelwegger's lovably hapless, love-triangulated Bridget. Though still aimed at adult contemporary tastes, it's also imbued with a healthier dose Anglocentric cool via tracks like Jamelia's torchy "Stop," Will Young's elegant take on Sade's "Your Love is King," teenaged Alfie contributor Joss Stone's soulful "Super Duper Love" and the ubiquitous Kylie Minogue's teasing "Can't Get You Out of My Head." Mary J. Blige offers up a stark, melodramatic cover of Elton John's "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word" while Rufus Wainwright (with Dido) turns Anna McCarrigle's (Wainwright's mother) "I Eat Dinner" into an emotive centrepiece. There are the expected 70's chestnuts (10cc's "I'm Not in Love," "Nobody Does It Better" by Carly Simon, Minnie Ripperton's "Lovin You") and the obligatory superstar remake (Sting and Annie Lennox muscling up his "We'll Be Together"), but a few surprises as well, including the deliciously over-the-top, nouveau glam-rock left turn by The Darkness, "I Believe In A Thing Called Love." --Jerry McCulley

I saw Bridget Jones on the day it was released and was very impressed with the soundtrack, which is used perfectly throughout the film. I don't often buy soundtracks but this had so many good songs on it I thought it was worth the money. There is a variety of songs on here to suit everyone -from old classics to new songs from some of the best modern artists.
The first song on the album is the best - Will Young's version of Your Love is King. His brilliant voice is shown off to its best on this track. It is perfectly suited to him and his version is better than the original in my view - really heartfelt. Other standout tracks are from Joss Stone, The Darkness (brings back great memories of the hilarious fight scene!), Carly Simon and Beyonce.
One of the highlights is another cover, Amy Winehouse's version of Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow? This is a classy reworking of this song and Winehouse's voice is perfect for it. Mary J Blige also does a strong cover of Elton's Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word, though it is acoustic and lacks the power of the original. This is the one song that sounded better in the film and disappointed slightly on the album. However, there is really something for everyone on here - rock, RnB, soul, jazz and pop. This is worth a listen even if you don't like the film.

Having thoroughly enjoyed the last Bridget Jones film and accompanying soundtrack, I was eagerly awaiting this one, and I was definitely not disappointed!! The opening cover version of "Your Love is King" by Will Young is gorgeous, and this album is worth buying for that and also the beautifully haunting "I Eat Dinner (When the Hungers Gone)" by Rufus Wainwright and Dido. The melody lingers with you for ages afterwards (as does the lyric about eating mashed potatoes!!) There is something for everyone on this album from the classic 70's hits of "I'm not in love" by 10cc and "Nobody does it Better" by Carly Simon right through to the new kids on the block namely the super duper Joss Stone and Jamie Cullum.
So go on, crack open a bottle of Chardonnay, grab your very own Mark Darcy/Daniel Cleaver, and dance your heart out round the front room to the likes of Kylie, The Darkness and Beyonce!! And in true Bridget fashion, sing all the heartbreakers as loud and as proud as you can! You know you want to!!!!!!

This is a pretty predictable soundtrack for Bridget Jones 2, mixing the usual smoothie suspects (Barry White, 10cc, Carly Simon) with contemporary chart toppers (Jamelia, Kylie Minogue, Beyonce). And yet there are some spectacular new recordings, in particular Amy Winehouse's superb, emotive cover of "Will you still love me tomorrow" - something to savour amidst the absence of any new material from her. Rufus Wainwright sings one of his mother's songs beautifully (although Dido sounds like she's reading out a menu in her self-conscious solo). And with "Misunderstood" Robbie Williams provides a surprisingly good confessional ("Trying to be misunderstood / Just a product of my childhood..."). These three tunes lend the soundtrack an authenticity gallingly lacking in the majority of the cover versions included. Do we really need to hear Jamelia trying to imitate Sam Brown on "Stop" or Will Young doing a Sade cover (especially when he fails to recreate any of the sexy steamy atmosphere of the original)? What, it might be asked, is the point of doing covers when they add nothing to the originals? The number of artists who have genuinely managed to fill old bottles with new wine are few and far between - e.g. Jeff Buckley's rendition of Cohen's "Hallelujah", Cat Power's Jukebox album or Vandross' rendition of Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come" - but that doesn't stop record companies churning out the blandest covers imaginable year after year (see Jamie Cullum's "Everlasting Love" on this album).

In spite of the hidden delights of Winehouse, Wainwright and Williams, this is a soundtrack playing it all too (commercially) safe.

Films dont come any better than Bridget Jones, and the soundtrack to the edge of reason is fantastic as well. Will Young blows my mind with his cover version of Your Love is King... is there anything this guy cant pull off to an unreachable standard? other brilliant tracks are Jamelias cover of Stop, and Mary J Bliges cover of sorry seems to be the hardest word. These 3 tracks send shivers down my spine!!
Fantastic Album!! :-)
