AllMusic Review by Heather Phares

The soundtrack to Shall We Dance? is a predictable, but still pleasant, mix of different types of dance music and pop. The Pussycat Dolls take to the dancefloor with the Latin-tinged "Sway" and Gizelle D'Cole and Pilar Montenegro's "I Wanna (Shall We Dance)" follows suit, while Jamie Cullum applies his cheeky, jazzy style to "I Could Have Danced All Night." Ballroom standards like "Happy Feet," "Espana Cani," "Perfidia," "Moon River," and "The 'L' Train" are competently played and also invite listeners to at least tap their toes, if not venture out onto the dancefloor themselves. Although ballads like Peter Gabriel's "The Book of Love" and Rachel Fuller's "Wonderland" seem a little out of step with the rest of this lively soundtrack, overall this is a decent musical souvenir for Shall We Dance? fans.
