The first Austin Powers soundtrack was a regular Carnaby Street lovefest of kitsch and kisses, complete with goofy and thoroughly groovy obscurities from Edwyn Collins and the Wondermints, plus the happy inclusion of Brasil '66, Quincy Jones, and several classics pulled from the shaggadelic Burt Bacharach oeuvre. But Hollywood loves a success story and the soundtrack to the highly touted sequel is chock-full of starpower. Though it's not the same stoned soul picnic as the original, there are gems. Madonna lets loose with the terrific psychedelic pop frug "Beautiful Stranger"--her most cheerful and cheesy song since 1989's "Cherish." Green Day slams gleefully into "Peter Gunn"-style twangy guitar grooves with the instrumental "Espionage."
Burt Bacharach returns with Elvis Costello in tow for a remake of "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" and R.E.M.'s cover of Tommy James' "Draggin' The Line" retains the sexy drawl of the original. As for Lenny Kravitz and Scary Spice Mel G., let's just say they must dress damn well in the video versions of their cover-song contributions, "American Woman" and "Word Up." Not quite music to shag by, but THE SPY WHO SHAGGED ME is a decent, albeit dentally impaired, summer frolic.
REVEIWS:
Rolling Stone (6/24/99, p.64) - 3 out of 5 - "Like Austin Powers himself, this soundtrack of Nineties artists gettin' jiggy with the Sixties is a colorful anachronism that's part inspiration, part unrepentant kitsch..."
