The soundtrack from Eminem's gamble-that-paid-off movie has done so well that second helpings have arrived. No verbals from the man himself here, but an irresistible set of just-left-of-familiar hip hop. Among the most inventive work-outs are OutKast's "Player's Ball" and Ol' Dirty Bastard's "Shimmy Shimmy Ya". Accompanying the movie's 'romantic' interlude—a wordless hump against a factory wall—is "You're All I Need" from Method Man and Mary J Blige.

The soundtrack from Eminem’s gamble-that-paid-off movie has done so well that second helpings have arrived. No verbals from the man himself here, but an irresistible set of just-left-of-familiar hip hop. Among the most inventive work-outs are OutKast’s “Player’s Ball” and Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s “Shimmy Shimmy Ya”. Accompanying the movie’s ‘romantic’ interlude?a wordless hump against a factory wall?is “You’re All I Need” from Method Man and Mary J Blige. How the makers of From Here To Eternity must regret not opting for something as sweet and tender for that grubby beach scene.
