AllMusic Review by

The soundtrack for Howard Stern's cinematic debut Private Parts was bound to be a hodge-podge of styles designed by marketers to reach the most listeners, but it's still surprising to hear how uneven the album actually is. Divided between contemporary hard-rock and classic hard-rock which are interspersed with snippets of dialogue from the film, the album never really builds up speed. Half of the new songs are worthy -- particularly Porno for Pyros' "Hard Charger," awhich is more focused than anything they've previously released, and LL Cool J and the Red Hot Chili Peppers' collaboration, "I Make My Own Rules" -- but there is also dreck like Ozzy Osbourne and Type O Negative's awkward cover of Status Quo's "Pictures of Matchstick Men." The classic rock -- "Smoke on the Water," "I Want You to Want Me," "Cat Scratch Fever," "Jamie's Cryin'," a live "You Shook Me All Night Long" -- is good, but almost too familiar. Still, no one is going to Private Parts for creativity, and it delivers what it promises -- good, old-fashioned hard-rock, with lots of attitude. It's a lot like listening to an AOR morning show, as a matter of fact.
