AllMusic Review by

The original soundtrack to the boxing comedy/road movie Play It to the Bone collects an eclectic array of songs, including Los Lobos' "Corazon," B.B. King & Joe Cocker's "Dangerous Mood," Moby's "Machete," and Fishbone & the Family Nextperience's "Shakey Ground." Kirk Franklin's "Gonna Be a Lovely Day" and Linda Jackson's "I Must Tell Jesus" add an unexpected touch of gospel to the album, while John Lee Hooker's "Boom Boom" and Jimmy Rogers' "Why Are You So Mean to Me" emphasize the blues. A selection from Alex Wurman's score, "On the Road," rounds out this entertaining but not essential collection of film music.
