Review Text Though it stars Hilary Duff, The Perfect Man's soundtrack is surprisingly low on teen pop (and Duff doesn't contribute any tracks to it). Instead, most of the album focuses on easygoing adult contemporary pop that has as much, if not more, appeal for Duff's character's mom -- as played by Heather Locklear -- as it does for the teen set. Beth Thornley's "If You Got What You Came For," a feisty, rock-edged pop song, and the propulsive rap of Grits' "Make Room" are the most youthful songs on the album. Though Kaci's "I Will Learn to Love Again" and Sara Overall's "Real Thing" lean toward teen pop, the sweet, sensitive vibe of both these songs makes them fit well with mom-friendly tracks like Howie Day's "Collide" and Kimberley Locke's "Better Than This." Toward the end of the album, The Perfect Man takes a surprising left turn by featuring four live tracks by Styx's Dennis DeYoung, including "Mr. Roboto," "Lady" (which quotes a passage from Ravel's Bolero), and "Best of Times." This choice probably makes more sense within the movie's context, but the DeYoung tracks are jarringly different from everything that came before them on the album. Still, for better or worse, quirky choices like these set The Perfect Man apart from run-of-the-mill romantic comedy soundtracks. ~ Heather Phares
