Latest soppy Kate Hudson vehicle— you have to wonder what her Black Crowes hubby makes of it all— features an eclectic pop selection, with a few little smashers more by accident than design. Devo's "Whip It" and Liz Phair's "Extraordinary" are about as daring as it gets, while there are decent if overtly radio-friendly offerings from John Hiatt and Joan Osborne, plus the resurrected Simon & Garfunkel's too-cute-to-shoot "At The Zoo".

Raising Helen – Hollywood

Latest soppy Kate Hudson vehicle? you have to wonder what her Black Crowes hubby makes of it all? features an eclectic pop selection, with a few little smashers more by accident than design. Devo’s “Whip It” and Liz Phair’s “Extraordinary” are about as daring as it gets, while there are decent if overtly radio-friendly offerings from John Hiatt and Joan Osborne, plus the resurrected Simon & Garfunkel’s too-cute-to-shoot “At The Zoo”. Zero 7 adorn a zillion coffee tables with “Destiny”, while Bowie’s “Fashion”, still beep-beeping boldly and brassily, is the pacemaker (sorry) for the rest.
