We gave it a B-

Like the film, the Austin Powers in Goldmember soundtrack doesn’t ask anybody to stretch too much. Dr. Dre’s remix of the Stones’ ”Miss You” is — wow! — full of bass and strings, and BeyoncĂ©’s ”Work It Out” is all shimmy and innuendo, while Susanna Hoffs sounds as Bangly as ever on ”Alfie (What’s It All About, Austin?).” Nothing here is too inspired — save Dr. Evil’s cover of Jay-Z’s ”Hard Knock Life” (”D to the Rizzo, E to the Vizzo…”).
