3.0 out of 5 stars High School High Hits the Right Notes 2 Feb 2011
Format:Audio CD
Soundtracks are generally hit and miss affairs by their very nature, the main attraction after all is supposed to be the film. And let's face it, the majority of film soundtracks are awful. The quality tends to improve somewhat when it comes to American black urban movies due to their relationship with urban music, be they comedy or otherwise, but still one must tread carefully. Now, I picked up this album shortly after the film came out. Not on the strength of the film mind you, because I must admit I haven't seen it! Answers to this place if you have and whether it's any good!

Hip hop was very much alive and well back in 1996 and what we get here is a solid mix of rap and R n'B tracks from this era (mostly hip hop actually). There are a couple of duds as one would expect. Quad City DJ's anyone? And both Jodeci and Changing Faces have had better days. But for the most part, very solid tracks from some of the biggest names in hip hop in the form of Wu-Tang, Lil'Kim, De La Soul, Krs-One and of course the mighty A Tribe Called Quest. And a lot of these songs are only to be found on this compilation, to the best of my knowledge. A couple of curious ones are thrown in for good measure also. The Braids (who?) do a very funky version of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody and arguably the strongest track is D'Angelo and Erykah Badu's powerful rendition of Ashford & Simpon's `Your Precious Love'. It's emotional mix of soul, doo-wop and the amazing vocal performances is a joy to behold. If you like your hip-hop and R n'B, you could do worse than picking up this little ditty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Soundtrack With Lots of Variety 5 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When I first bought this soundtrack I was not really sure what to expect. Generally, soundtracks tend to have a lot of made for radio filler that does not have much to keep a listener coming back to the album. This is not so with the High School High Soundtrack. Every song seems as if it could have easily made the cut on the artists' own albums. The tracks have a certain underground edge to them while still maintaining mainstream tastes. My personal favorites are the Pete Rock & Large Professor song, the Inspectah Deck & U-God song, and the A Tribe Called Quest track. I am not quite as elated with some of the R&B songs but I'm sure that they will suit most people just fine. There are no tracks that I honestly say that I dislike; although I was slightly dissapointed with the De La Soul song (I think they are capable of much better material). If you want a compilation of quality material that can be listened to straight through with minimal use of the fast forward button, then the High School High Soundtrack is a great addition to your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good 28 Nov 2005
By JiggaJ1979 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack has pretty good r/b songs and good hiphop east and west Good Cd Buy it if you want to mix it up
3.0 out of 5 stars A few good songs... 13 Nov 2009
By hot_pink_vinyl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Most of this album features hard-core rap songs, but some good R/B. Stand outs are "So Man Ways," "I Got Somebody Else," "Your Precious Love," and the Root's haunting cover of "Bohemian Rhapsody." And of course, we all know "Cmon Ride The Train," which is a fun song. :)

This CD is good for people looking for old school 90's rap.
5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth it for 2 tracks 9 Dec 2007
By Fiona Lynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
These two tracks make it worth it:
The De La Soul track, I Can't Call It is AMAZING. It shares the lyrical style from their first three albums but the production is later (no samples) and has these wonderfully funky low synth tones reminiscent to their OOOH single. I think this is one of their best tracks post Buhloone Mindstate.

The Inspectah Deck/U-God track is also incredible. Amazing flows and production style is near perfect. This would have been a perfect track for the classic Enter the Wu Tang 36 Chambers (although this probably wasn't made until way after).

Other notable tracks, but definitely par at best, Krs-One, Large Prof. & Pete Rock, and maybe the Sadat X & Grand Puba. The rest are horrible--complete throwaways--and that's why they're not on real albums. I am a huge fan of, or was, of many of these artists but they simply don't deliver on this album (i.e.- the Erykah Badu & D'Angelo cover track of the Marvin Gaye song is embarrassing. It was a shame too because I really love both these artists and wanted to like it. ********* But, for a really amazing track that is way too good to be buried on a soundtrack from these two, see: The 'Notic from the Men in Black Soundtrack. The Roots, D'Angelo and Erykah Badu together and it is nothing short of brilliant! They briefly cover Shining Star by Earth Wind and Fire and it is sooooo good.********)

2.0 out of 5 stars I got it for Wu Wear... 9 May 2008
By I.M.J - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
And that's it. I like "Wu Wear: Garment Renaissance" and "The Good, The Bad, The Desolate" by The Roots but that is all I like. This soundtrack is symbolic of a time when people would just gather a bunch of names to record music that really had no relation to the movie or didn't jibe well with the movie to which it was attach (Death Row Records was famous for this). The end result is the proverbial "throw a bunch of stuff against the wall and see what sticks". Those two songs are the only ones that stuck as far as I was concerned. If it is indeed only $.70 here, that is about all it is worth: you'd be better off using your 70 cents on the download or a box of Boston Baked Beans.
