The 'Eyes' have it mm* * *- ' FROM A BUSINESS PERSPECTIVE, THE "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" soundtrack is easy money. Just follow a few easy steps: Take a hit show that most everyone loves, slap a picture of the five leading men on the cover, add an extended version of the theme song to start off the album, and fill up the rest of the running time with tracks that are (for the most part) unrelated to the series, but might appeal to a general audience. Shake gently, and voila! People will buy this CD, released Feb. 10, because they like the show, and the bands that contribute tracks get some exposure. Everyone goes home a winner. (A book — "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy: The Fab 5's Guide to Looking Better, Cooking Better, Dressing Better, Behaving Better, and Living Better" — also was released on Feb. 10.) But when consumers bring this music home and peel off the cellophane, they might realize that this is a CD by a bunch of artists they don't actually know much about. So, aside from being a profitable venture, the real question is, does this record have any substance? The surprising answer is that a good portion of the "Queer Eye" audience will likely be enchanted by the tracks that the producers have selected. For the most part, the songs are big on beats and inspire people to move to the dance floor. The CD offers unit-shifting, bouncy anthems from Duran Duran, Prophet Omega and Basement Jaxx that are custom made for a club environment. Although it's almost always dance-oriented, the mood shifts from light and peppy to intense and dark as the album goes on. WILDLIFE STARTS THINGS OFF WITH a full version of the show's theme song, "All Things (Just Keep Getting Better)." As with all TV themes that end up getting played on the radio (think "I'll Be There For You" from "Friends"), the full version of the song is familiar, catchy and utterly forgettable since you're already sick of it before you hear the whole thing. Aside from the "All Things," careful listeners may recognize some of the songs from the TV show. OK GO's "You're So Damn Hot" appeared in the episode where straight guy Richard (the one with the toupee) was preparing for his new look sans hairpiece. For the most part, though, the tracks seem to come out of nowhere and if they have been featured on the show, you aren't likely to recognize them. Sting seems completely confused and The Queer Eye soundtrack, released Feb. 10, stands on its own merits, despite the antics of the Tab 5,' Ted AHen (left), Jai Rodriguez, Carson Kressley, Thorn Fflfcia and Kyan Douglas. (Photo courtesy of Bravo) out of place on "Never Coming Home." Backed by a tame bass and handclap beat, he half-raps, half-warbles his way through an aimless track that never takes off. The iconic Kylie Minogue makes an appearance with a Chemical Brothers remix of her track "Slow." The song is full of electronic bleeps and, thankfully, devoid of a throbbing beat, but it isn't the best techno track on the CD. The collaboration between Fischerspooner and Billy Squier on "Everybody Wants You to Emerge" is more interesting. It's a techno song with dark melodies and eerie female vocals. "You're So Damn Hot," along with Junior Senior's "Move Your Feet," are the two best tracks on the collection. OK GO's track is its most rocking — a power pop anthem driven by keyboards and guitars. The band comes off as Weezer gone new wave and, while it stands out as atypical among its dance club-oriented company, its melody and carefree attitude make it fit with the "Queer Eye" vibe. The mood on the "Queer Eye" soundtrack is different than that of the show, a weekly hour of energy and fun. Despite having a few embedded sound clips from the show and an unlisted track of Jai and Ted freestyling, this is a solid collection of dance-rock tracks that deserves to be judged on its own merits. d MORE INFO Music from 'Queer Eye for the Straight Guy1 Various Artists Capitol Records wwwqueereyemusic.com
