Hgh School High: The Soundtrack (1996)
I have never seen the film High School High. The soundtrack contains R&B and hip hop tunes from a mix of artists like De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, KRS-One, The Braxtons, Lil' Kim, RZA, etc. Apparently, five singles from this record charted. Allmusic says this: "Though its momentum sags in a couple of places, High School High remains a thoroughly enjoyable and surprisingly eclectic listen, and is easily one of the finest soundtracks of 1996. It's certainly more fun than the film it supports" [source] Since I have not seen the film, I am forced to accept this conclusion.
This album is not really my scene, though I certainly do like parts of it. Perhaps I need to see the film for it to coalesce.
