5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Everyday Listening and Fun! 13 Oct 2005
By A. Billings - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought this and was greatly impressed with the result. I love the cd, many of the songs are terrific, a few you can get annoyed with after a while but still...awesome. For me my two favorite songs would be Issues and Pass the Flame. Issues just makes you want to sing along while at the same time makes you think about the world around you while listen. Pass the Flame is just totally...wow, it makes you really reflective and is almost trance like. Definitely my favorite track on the cd.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why not the real McCoy? 11 Dec 2004
By Jet Jock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As another reviewer noted, this is NOT the music used at the games! Why couldn't they put together a CD with the music used at the opening and closing ceremonies? Why not a DVD of those ceremonies (this time WITHOUT NBC's annoying commentary and constant commercial interruption!)? Those ceremonies, as are all Olympic Ceremonies, are carefully choreographed and usually magnificent occasions worthy of preservation on DVD. Somehow, it all just gets trashed and forgotten. After the tremendous expense involved, that seems incredibly wasteful. The drum beats at the beginning of the opening ceremony sent chills down my spine! Oh, to see and hear them again!

We can hear these dumb pop stars anytime. This CD is a pathetic peice of self-promotion. Avoid it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pop Stars Promote Peace, World Unity 29 July 2004
By Jed Shlackman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album was a pleasant surprise. It enlists a variety of musicians to provide an upbeat assortment of tracks to accompany the theme of unity promoted by the Olympics events. The album starts with Avril Lavigne's cover of Knocking on Heaven's Door, a mellow, pleasant track. Then a few R&B tracks by current popular artists get things revved up, following by a revitalized Sting tune. Dancehall reggae, hip-hop, rock, and world music rhythms all get thrown into the proceeding mix with artists such as Beres Hammond, Mr. G, Lenny Kravitz, Moby, Alice Cooper, Public Enemy, Macy Gray, Brian Eno, Cheb Mami, and others adding their talents. The Moby/P.E. track picks up where Fight The Power left off, saying Power To The People... the People Want Peace. Alice Cooper & Xzibit make a solid collaboration, reminding the listener to Stand up for something or you'll fall for anything. All in all this is a very groove-oriented album that plays on anti-war sentiments. It has some new material from the contributing artists and seems rather club-oriented instead of relying on pop ballads for radio hits like prior Olympics compilations have.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good collection of funky toons... 5 Aug 2004
By N. Livadas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Police it may not be as a previous reviewer mentioned, but as far a collection of voice s and tunes coming together for a cause, this one sounds better than most collections out there. It tends to be of the funky, beat-driven side, and does have recognizeable voices doing off the beaten path tracks (yes includind Sting). It is closer to world-pop-music (lots of european, african, and middle eastern sounding pop derivations) so folks who are not willing to listen to anything other than American-generated pop may not like this set of performances. I do not think this album is the least anti-American, unless one thinks that peace and the ultimate goal of the Olympics (which is peace and recognition through peaceful competition) is anti American. If you are a war-monger, then obviously this album is anti-war. Last I checked at least 50% of out country are not war-mongers...

4.0 out of 5 stars Time to here something else 16 Sep 2004
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Well I wouldn't actually give a 5 star, but this cd is a collection of diferent types of sounds and surelly open to the world. Who said that it's anti-American? And who said that the whole world IS America? Is it that bad to sit down and listen something else, than the barkings in the hip-hop/rap/RnB music who's poor in mellody to say the least and rich in cursing (at least 4 times of the *f* word in every hip-hop song). European, African and Asian sounds to help people extend their music knowlege, I dont think this makes it anti-American. After all, music is food for our minds. Am I right or am I right? :))
