This is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files.
Perhaps it's telling that a CD which finally manages to shatter all music-industry pigeonholes and brings together the foremost practitioners of the soul, hip-hop, punk, electronica and art-rock genres to collaborate on a single musical project is no high-brow fusion endeavor but rather the soundtrack to a children's animated movie. Where else could you find a production eclectic enough to include Lenny Kravitz, Laurie Anderson, Lou Rawls, rappers Phife and B-Real (from A Tribe Called Quest and Cypress Hill, respectively) and Iggy Pop all on one track?
The truly amazing thing about this soundtrack, though, is that it allows all these artists to do their various things without too much watering down and still ends up with extremely listenable, kid-friendly music. In fact the disc's strength is that in retaining the edginess and sophisticated production values of its adult stars it takes the ups and downs of kid-life as seriously as kids do themselves. In fact, some of the members of this all-star ensemble (Mase, Blackstreet producer Teddy Riley) sound as if they were born to make kids' music, and Rakim can't help but come across even when he's saying things like "Get your Rugrat on."
