AllMusic Review by

The soundtrack for Director Brad Furman’s film adaptation of American crime writer Michael Connelly’s mystery/thriller The Lincoln Lawyer, which stars Matthew McConaughey as a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who handles business out of the back of his Lincoln sedan, relies heavily on modern hip/hop, rap, pop, and soul. Opening up with Bobby "Blue" Bland’s smooth and soulful 1974 hit "Ain't No Love in the Heart of the City” and closing with '60s jazz singer Marlena Shaw’s “California Soul,” the latter of which is given a 21st century update by West Coast gangsta rapper Ya Boy, The Lincoln Lawyer offers up a solid mix of old and new school, with a little Pacific Ocean-kissed modern rock thrown in for good measure.
