On the soundtrack for Quentin Tarantino's long awaited follow-up to PULP FICTION, the director again turns to 1970s R&B classics, seasoning the mix with a touch of modern pop. As usual, Tarantino proves himself to be quite the soul connoisseur. This disc zeroes in on great old-school cuts like "Natural High" by the criminally underrated Bloodstone and "Inside My Love" by the late Minnie Riperton. Topping things off is a change-of-pace from, of all people, ex-Cars guitarist Elliot Easton and his group Tiki Gods.
