Overview

You might expect the NOTTING HILL movie-soundtrack combo to be just another romantic comedy package, with dazzling hooks and shimmering melodies made to match Julia Roberts's 100-watt smile. But this collection of songs goes one better. Of course, wherever there's a "troubled" love story, there's bound to be sappy ballads -- like Boyzone's "No Matter What" and Boyzone boy Ronan Keating's solo outing, "When You Say Nothing at All" -- but there's also a little soul, courtesy of Al Green, Bill Withers, and the Lighthouse Family, who deliver their own funky spin on Withers's "Ain't No Sunshine." The setting of the film, a quaint London neighborhood, renders the country influence on the soundtrack a bit surprising, but nonetheless, Shania Twain lays down her polished twang, Steve Poltz emotes like a countrified Duncan Sheik, and R&B boyz 98 Degrees transform Mark Willis's hit "I Do (Cherish You)" into a sleek love song. Overall, this album may not be A-list, but taken one at a time, most of these songs pass the test.
