One star (out of five)

Coming soon to a theatre near you: Bones, the story of a ghost who comes back to his neighbourhood to avenge his murder.

Hopefully not coming to a CD player near you: the movie's soundtrack.

Almost every song on this soundtrack describes Jimmy Bones as a "badass brotha." The lead role in the upcoming movie is played by Snoop Dogg, who conveniently has the majority of input on the soundtrack.

The first song is a Snoop track called "The Birth of Jimmy Bones," a tune that provides background info on Bones. It's followed by "The Legend of Jimmy Bones," predictably followed by "The Ballad of Jimmy Bones."

Anyone see a pattern?

It's impressive to see so many good names put out so much trash.

D12 performs a song on the album called "These Drugs," but in the grand tradition of all D12 songs, it starts with a great verse by Eminem before the other 11 guys end up ruining it.

Even the Outkast and Snoop tracks aren't worth listening to. The only possible salvation on this disc is Cypress Hill's "Memories." It may not be their best work, but it's not as horrible as some of the tracks.
