This is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files as well as the video for the song "Daddy Wasn't There."
Everybody's favorite British man of mystery hits the silver screen yet again in the inevitable third installment of Mike Myers's fortune-generating AUSTIN POWERS series. This time around, the swinging '60s hero is partying like it's 1975, and the soundtrack accomodates the stylistic shift. There's only one period classic, Earth Wind & Fire's "Shining Star." The rest of the album features contemporary artists nodding to mid-'70s pop, as DJ Paul Oakenfold delivers the era-referencing "1975," Dr. Dre remixes the Rolling Stones' disco moves on "Miss You," (which admittedly overshoots the aforementioned target date a bit), and Soul Hooligan teams with Diana King for a funked-up version of ELO's "Evil Woman." In a clever nod to the film's utilization of Michael Caine as Austin's father, former Bangle Susanna Hoffs closes the disc with her take on the theme song from Caine's smash '60s film ALFIE.
