The soundtrack to the Fox television show New York Undercover contains a slection of urban R&B songs from the likes of Brownstone, Chaka Khan, Michael DeLorenzo, 112, Xscape, Barrio Boyz, Gerald LeVert and Mary J. Blige. Only a few of the songs are truly exceptional -- Brownstone's "Don't Ask My Neighbor," K-Ci & JoJo's "Love Ballad," Blige's "Our Love" and B.B. King's "The Thrill Is Gone" sound particularly strong -- but nothing on the collection is terrible. It's unlikely to leave a lasting impression, but New York Undercover offers enough highlights to make it an enjoyable listen.
