Music Review: 'Bad Boys (soundtrack)' (1995)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Various Artists; Genre: Soundtracks

The standouts on this reggae- and hip-hop-flavored soundtrack are not the stars (2Pac and Ini Kamoze) but the up-and-comers: Xscape's lovely ''Work Me Slow,'' Juster's Beastie Boys-like ''Boom Boom Boom,'' and especially Diana King's ''Shy Guy'' — a seamless merging of Anita Baker and dancehall reggae.
