The Def Jam-issued soundtrack for the sixth installment of the lucrative, yet brainless Fast and Furious series, the cleverly titled Fast and Furious, Vol. 6, offers another high-energy set of club/asphalt face-plant jams that never lets up.Thankfully, the franchise continues to avoid populating its soundtracks with the tank top-splitting, Limp Bizkit-inspired dudebro rock that its name might suggest, preferring instead to focus on hip-hop, rap, and EDM, the latter of which provides the collection with a much needed paint job, thanks to solid outings from the likes of the Crystal Method ("Roll It Up"), Deadmau5 feat. Cypress Hill ("Failbait"), and Peaches ("Burst! [Bart B More Remix]"). Elsewhere, 2 Chains and Wiz Khalifa provide the meaty, militaristic title cut "We Own It (Fast & Furious)," T.I. offers up "Ball," one of the better tracks from 2012's Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head, and Ludacris, who also appears in the film, teams up with Usher and David Guetta for the non-goose bump-inducing, triple-flame, butane-torch lighter baller/credits anthem "Rest of My Life."
