Album Notes and Credits
The soundtrack to rubber-faced comedian Jim Carrey's black comedy ME, MYSELF & IRENE is as schizophrenic as his character; it doesn't know whether to be a modern rock collection or a Steely Dan tribute album. Eight of the 15 tracks are Fagan/Brecker compositions interpreted by some of pop music's front line.
The Foo Fighters open the set with their trademark uplifting aggro-pop while Smashmouth sets a quirky tone with its So-Cal "Walking on the Sun"-ified version of "Do it Again." Third Eye Blind's latest power ballad makes a soundtrack guest appearance with "Deep Inside of You." The Offspring submit a faithful rendition of A.F.I.'s "Totalimmortal," while Ellis Paul offers the radio-ready "The World Ain't Slowin' Down." Wilco has the perfect Fender Rhodes-spiced touch on "Any Major Dude Will Tell You," and Ivy injects technology into "Only a Fool Would Say That." Hootie & The Blowfish sport big harmonies on "Can't Find the Time to Tell You," and the brass powerhouse and hollow-body guitar sound of the Brian Setzer Orchestra puts an interesting spin on "Bodhisattva." Pop rockers Marvelous 3 add a hard rock edge to the classic "Reelin' in the Years," while Ben Folds Five make "Barrytown" their own.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (8/3/00, p.55) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Each of these groups captures something of Steely Dan's peculiarly rounded, plummy resonance....even the originals...sustain that classic Dan combo of sharp musical strategies and silken sound."
