Mystery Men
Mystery Men, the movie, is the saga of hero wannabes trying to strut their stuff. Mystery Men, the soundtrack, is an album of modern rockers doing the same. Smash Mouth's "All Star" is the one of the disc's finer moments, an upbeat, dance-ready tune. The Dub Pistols perform their trademark blend of funky rap on "Keep Keep Movin'" while Kel and the M.A.F.T. Emcees give us a taste of the real thing on "Who Are Those Mystery Men." Freak Power (Fatboy Slim's other band) contributes the catchy "No Way." But, ultimately, the Bee Gees' classic "Night Fever" helps save the day. --Jason Verlinde
