Sex and the City 2 Soundtrack

I will be right up front when I say this, if I had not seen the movie this weekend the review for this soundtrack might have been a bit different. 

I listened to the soundtrack (in stores May 25) as soon as I got it.  I am a big fan of SATC and always have been.  However, the wide range of musical styles and sounds was a bit too much for me.  To go from Alicia Keys remake of Blondie's 'Rapture' to a Middle Eastern twist with Cee Lo, Liza Minnelli and the SATC Men's Choir was a tad confusing.  Then I saw the film and it changed my whole perspective and feeling on the soundtrack.  What would have been a jumbled, middle-of-the-road review has changed.

I saw SATC2 this past weekend and then I listened to the soundtrack all over again.  'Rapture' and Ricki-Lee's 'Can't Touch It' are still favorites of mine, but I also have a better appreciation for Cee Lo, the girls rendition of 'I am Woman' and all of Liza.  Call me a new fan.  My kids like the CD too.  My four year-old daughter found the 'Language of Love' and 'Euphrates Dream' to be like Tinkerbell or Princess/Fairy music. "It's beautiful!" she exclaimed.  She's right too. It is beautiful and now I have found a CD that we can all listen to in the car without being bored to tears on either side.  It's a nice mix of upbeat tunes and relaxing classics that makes everyone happy.
