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 Beyoncé’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…”).
