AllMusic Review by

As befitting a film that jumps from '80s junior high school flashbacks to the late '90s, the original soundtrack to The Wood features a diverse mix of vintage and contemporary R&B and hip-hop. The film's affectionate, humorous look at the coming of age of three African-American best friends is complemented by tracks like Biz Markie's "Make the Music with Your Mouth Biz," Cheryl Lynn's "If This World Were Mine" and Whodini's "Freaks Come out at Night," while the Roots' "Y'All Know Who!," R. Kelly's "It's All Good," and Blackstreet's "Think About You" reflect the trio's life in the '90s. DMX's "I Can, I Can," Marc Dorsey's "Crave," Imajin's "Love Letter," and a remix of Ahmad's "Back in the Day" are some of the other highlights from this appealing, eclectic soundtrack.
