2-0 out of 5 stars It's either Been There Done That or Never Wanted to Do That!
We had this CD on in our store during the holiday shopping season this year...unfortunately. Either the stuff on here could be found elsewhere and plenty of elsewheres (ie. "Christmas Wrapping" by the Waitresses, though that's one of the few HIGH points on this disc), many of the songs on this disc are headache enducing. Why, oh why, did anyone let the version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" by Tom Jones and some chick whose name I never bothered to learn out of the studio? It's horrible. We would race to the CD player to skip that one and plenty of others.

3-0 out of 5 stars Its an ok cd
Some of the songs are wonderful but I could do without Destiny's Child and B2K doing their renditions of some old classics. Good thing there is a fast forward button on the cd player. I LOVE the classic songs sung by Andy Williams, Johnny Mathis, Andy Williams, etc. It does have a good variety of music.

3-0 out of 5 stars Another great collection of Holiday hits.
This is another great release of Christmas music by the Now! producers. I assume they had no original plans to release a second volume of "Now That's What I Call Christmas!", or didn't expect the phenomenal success they got with the first, because a lot of songs on each collection could have been omitted and/or combined to make THE definitive Christmas collection, without the filler.

The one song that is absolutely horrendous and almost single-handedly drags the album's rating all the way down to three stars, is B2K's "Santa Claus is Coming to Town". Matter of fact, I couldn't even finish listening to that track after about 6 "yo's", "hey's", "wassup's" and the like right at the beginning. Nothing against their style of music, I just personally wouldn't regularly listen to it, and it is certainly not Christmas-friendly in this case. If these guys just had to be used, like another reviewer said, it should have been at a point on the disc where you could skip past it. At the very least, they should have done an original instead of mangling a classic. I doubt they're that talented to come up with something new in terms of holiday music, though. Evidently, the Jackson 5 version, although beyond superior, wouldn't have been "appropriate" with the controversies currently surrounding Michael in the news. Manhattan Transfer does a great rendition that they could have gone with here and Bruce Springsteen has a stellar version available on the first volume also that could have been used again if necessary.

Notable omissions this time around include versions of "O Holy Night" by Josh Groban and/or John Berry, which could have replaced the Celine Dion version used, "Hey Santa!" by Carnie and Wendy Wilson along with "Jingle Bell Rock" by Hall and Oates, and Gayla Peevey's "Hippopotamus Song". Maybe for Volume 3!

Highlights: The classics such as "Step into Christmas" by Elton John, "Rudolph..." by Burl Ives, and tracks by Christmas mainstays like Andy Williams and Johnny Mathis speak for themselves, of course, and Kylie Minogue does such a brilliant rework of "Santa Baby", you barely think it's a remake. Nothing beats the original, but this is one "sequel" that comes close. Happy Holidays! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars If you own Halo, or just like great music - This is for you.
If you played the game, you know just how stunning and well done the music of Halo is. If you haven't... you're missing out on some of the most original and inspiring music of our time.

Here is your chance to right your wrongs and experience the aural beauty of Halo.

To begin, the CD comes with a small foldout, giving you a bit of insight into the authors and the music, as well as a few directions to help you on your way to becoming an adept Bungie fan.

Also, to calm the worries of Xbox owners, there is no data on the disc; so you can play it and rip it to your hard drive whenever you wish.

The music itself is a recomposition of the most dramatic scores in the game, with only a smattering of the transitional music. Which means only the good stuff. Also, the music had to be recombined from it's origional 'freeform' version. Now the tracks are a good set legnth, and will play as a normal score would; rather than loop or remix themselves as they might have in the game. Many of the scores have been combined into 'Suites' containing many smaller tracks from the game, giving the music fluidic transitions that only serve to enhance the experience. Another important point is that the in-game music was somewhat sparser, because it's job was to blend in with the game. The album version, on the other hand, has been spruced up in some slow areas - giving Halo veterans a richer experience than they would expect. Finally, the album includes tracks played only at the Halo expositions at Gamespot and E3; as well as other pieces that were not used in the game, or were hard to find...

The music itself is a broad-range of taste. Transitioning from charged pieces found in 'Brothers in Arms', to the guitar riffs of 'Rock Anthem for Saving the World', and the melodic spell of 'Ambient Wonder'. And anyone who has an afinity to cultural drumbeats will love the soundtrack, which manages to blend electronicly generated sounds with them to further a wonderful piece.

The only track which seems to deviate from perfection is 'Shadows'. It's strong guitar sounds challenge the rest of the album, and may come as a jolt to anyone listening for relaxation. It does however provide a upbeat after the darker music in tracks such as Suite Autumn and the Library Suite, particularly dark levels in the game which were matched with equally cryptic music.

For music lovers, this is a must have at a resonable price. From energetic bursts to get you going, to trance-inducing melodies, and reminiscent pieces to help you contemplate. It features music for almost any occasion, and will provide unequalled awe for anyone who has never played the game. It may even provoke you to buy an Xbox and Halo: Combat Evolved.

For gamers, this will invoke memories of the levels and lessons learned in the stunning game from Bungie. The beautiful vistas of 'Halo', the alien halls of 'The tru7h and Reconcilliation', the amazing tank run in 'Assault on the Control Room', and the fear induced by '343 Guilty Spark'. This music highlights both the places you've been and the places you haven't.

For Bungie fans, this CD is a must-have. The message behind SABABWL, the music from Halo at E3, and an hour of memories from Bungie's latest work of genius. What's there not to like?

Final Note: The music totals to well over 60 minutes of tunes, more than enough time to listen to on a drive to work, or to help pass the time durring some tedious chore. Whatever your intentions, the Halo Soundtrack CD is a great piece of work that will please everyone.

Make the right choice, buy this CD, and learn the Tru7h.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely awesome! Must have for HALO fans!
What more needs to be said? If you're an XBOX gamer, there's very little doubt that HALO isn't one of your favorite games. HALO is a first person shooter done correctly, in every conceivable aspect. HALO is one of those extremely rare games that seems to do everything right-everything is done perfectly and all components compliment each other flawlessly. In addition to the gripping story and revolutionary gameplay, the soundtrack is also exceptionally well done and many HALO fans have been clamoring for an official soundtrack.

The good news is that Bungie listened to its loyal fans and with Total Audio's help, they have released the soundtrack to this epic game.

If you loved the music in HALO and wished there was some way to hear the tracks in their entirety or find some way to rip them to your hard drive, get this CD! Many of your favorite tracks are here and they sound great! The awesome variety of sounds helps set the mood from fast paced rock tracks to moody, introspective ballads complete with chanting monks. Plus, you can rip these tunes to your XBOX hard drive and play them on any game that supports a custom soundtrack!!

Buy this CD today! 100% recommended!

5-0 out of 5 stars It's finally here! An award winner from Bungie Studios!
Many of us have been eagerly awaiting this soundtrack. The music contained within has won awards from Rolling Stone ("Best Original Soundtrack in a game") and the Game Developers Conference ("Gamer's Choice award for Best Audio")

So it's no wonder that Bungie Studios decided to release the music of Halo as a bonafide soundtrack CD. And the world is a better place for it.

In-game, the music beds played dynamically, in rhythm to the player's moves on the battlefield. Coupled with the Xbox's 5.1 Surround Sound capabilities, it made for one of the best marriages of visual and aural 'Shoot-em-up' entertainment. Marty O'Donnell and Michael Salvatori are to be commended for continuing their track-record first started with Riven, The Sequel to Myst, followed by Myth and then Oni.

In producing this soundtrack, Mr. O'Donnell had to lock-down the music. As he states in the liner notes, this creates a different experience for the listener that's familiar with the game, as the music burned on CD now follows a firmly defined beginning, middle, and end. To that end, Mr. O'Donnell has done an admirable job of letting the pieces breath on their own. By also breaking up the sequence of songs into an interspersed list of musical moods, the CD never 'gets into a rut' : each piece is well complemented by the piece before and after it. A moving percussion-heavy track, like "The Covenant Dance" (#14) is bracketed by the more symphonic "Devils... Monsters..." (#13) and synth-heavy "Alien Corridors" (#15). At the same time, the track list does follow the musical progression in the game, so if you're familiar with the storyline, the CD is a great way to re-experience your battle with the evil alien baddies known as The Covenant.

Some tracks only suffer from not being given more time to 'git all funky wit it', like a personal favorite of mine, track #6, "A Walk in the Woods" or track #16, "Rock Anthem for Saving the World" but then pieces like #22, "The Long Run" make up for it, relishing on the percussive grooves of a chase through dangerous territories.

For absolutely beautiful Bass lines, track #10, "Under Cover of Night" and the aforementioned track #6 are worthy contenders. Ambient pieces, hinting at New Age sensibilities, but not allowing itself to 'go too random.' can be found on track #7, "Ambient Wonder" and "Trace Amounts," #9. Some of the anthem/military-like pieces are #3, "Brothers in Arms", #8 "The Gun Pointed at the Head of the Universe." Be careful not to listen to these pieces while driving to work, or you may just get a speeding ticket!

One truly unique twist that seperates this music from other 'game' music is the addition of actual Monk chants, performed by Mr. O'Donnell, Mr. Salvatori, and other singers. It's a testament to their ingenuity that they pull it off! The signature piece, "Halo", #26, and tracks, #1 "Opening Suite", and #17, "The Maw" show how Monks and their chants can still 'fit' in modern music, no less in a modern console action game!

All in all, this soundtrack is a must have for anyone interesting in instrumental music that touches on different genres and infuses them with a sly personal touch. If you get a chance, you must try it out with the game it was created for, on a home theater setup, natch! You won't regret it!

I eagerly await any future soundtrack work from Bungie Studios and Total Audio.

It takes a pretty deft touch to make us believe towering Will Ferrell as a displaced human cum Santa's elf, Ed Asner as St. Nick and make a Christmas movie that's as loopy/sassy as it is seasonally sentimental. Yet that's what director Jon Favreau has done with this unlikely little holiday gem, and his hand-picked song score underscores its warm heart and comedic smarts with charm to burn. Suffused with a New York sense of traditional cool, Favreau turns his soundtrack into an upbeatsecular Christmas classic, a sort of Swingers-Meet-Santa collection that convinces us that performances as diverse as Louis Prima's rousing take on "Pennies From Heaven" and the pumping soul of Billy Preston's "Nothing From Nothing" are as season-friendly as the performances of more traditional Christmas pop fare byElla Fitzgerald, Jim Reeves, Eartha Kitt and Eddy Arnold they bookend. The edited Ferrante & Teicher/Les Baxter medley is a lounge-y inspiration, while a trio of laconic Leon Redbone crooners anchor the film's dizzy, if often bittersweet emotional foundations. Co-star Zooey Deschanel duets with Redbone on "Baby It's Cold Outside," her bluesy performance a welcome surprise that recalls nothing less than a young Peggy Lee.--Jerry McCulley ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Yea! Leon Redbone is back!
Many years ago a friend gave me what he called "The best christmas CD ever" It was Leon Redbone's "Christmas Island". It WAS the best Christmas CD. Until now. Zooey and Leons's version of "Baby it's cold outside" on the "Elf" sound track is breathtaking. Toss in a few other Christmas and non-Christmas classics and you have, "Elf" The NEW best Christmas CD ever.

5-0 out of 5 stars A review of the CD, not Zooey
This seems to be pretty much just reviews of Zooey's voice, I'll put down my two cents on the actual CD...not just one track.

If you're into jazz/swing style music, and you're looking for a good Christmas album, this is it. Reall good strong songs all the way through. They aren't all christmas songs, but it's still one darn good CD.

I'd suggest it to anyone who wnats a little swing in their Christmas step.

5-0 out of 5 stars A voice from 1940s heaven
Can you believe that voice, I was never a real big fan (although I do like it) of the 40s genre music, but WOW I am now!!! I was completely amazed at the voice of that Zooey!!! I MUST have a CD with her singing ANYTHING. Not only is she cute but that girl can sing with the best of them, I now want to go buy a CD of the "Rat Pack" just to hold me over. We should have had the pleasure of her singing "Santa Baby" wouldn't that have been great.

OH yeah the movie was really good too, one that we will soon own, mostly to hear Zooey crooning, but one that will entertain year after year. My ten year old boy even melted when he heard her voice!!

5-0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!!!!
What an unbelievable voice Zooey has! It's absolutely spellbounding. I haven't heard a voice that stopped me in my tracks like that ever! I can't wait to get this CD. When is she REALLY going to be discovered and start recording is what I want to know. Talent like that shouldn't be wasted!

5-0 out of 5 stars Zooey!!!! What a voice!!!!!
My wife and I saw the movie and wanted the soundtrack asap. We loved Zooey's voice, has that classic sound. Really wished they had more of her on it, especially with Will Ferrell. A must buy. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars OK CD
**(...)(Really Bad)~
1.)One In This World - Haylie Duff (cheesy, trying to leech off of Hilary's popularity, not good, even though she does sound like Hilary)

2.)Crash World - Hilary Duff (I was really disappointed with this song - enough said)

3.)To Make You Feel My Love - Josh Kelley ( I never heard of this person before and I wished I kept it that way.)

*~Songs rated 4-7 (Ok songs)~*
1.)Best Day Of My Life - Jesse McCartney (I was disappointed with this song. His voice is okay it's just not a great song.)

2.)Our Lips Are Sealed - Hilary Duff & Haylie Duff (The best Haylie Duff song on here, but it's a remake)

3.)Sympathy - Goo Goo Dolls (I'm not a Goo Goo Dolls fan, but this song isn't that bad.)

4.)Fallen - Mya ( I like Mya, but this song is just not great)

5.)Friend - Kaitlyn (okay song, never heard of this person before)

6.)First Day Of The Rest Of Your Life - MxPx ( never heard of this group before, okay song, but not my type of music.)

`*~Songs Rated 8-10 (Great Songs)~*`
1.)Beautiful Soul - Jesse McCartney (Good song, great guy, good voice, any questions?)

2.)Now You Know - Hilary Duff ( The best Hilary Duff song ever! I'm so glad I heard this song! Great song! Why wasn't this a single?!)

3.)I'll Be - Edwin McCain (good song, kinda old though)

4.)Girl Can Rock - Hilary Duff ( I love this song! 2nd best hilary song ever! It was a bonus track on her solo cd. It's great!)

5.) Anywhere But Here - Hilary Duff (good song, also on her solo cd)

In conclusion if u like Hilary and don't haqve her album then get this cd. If u do have her cd then listen to the songs on aol and buy the songs u like. That should save u some money. I hoped I helped you guys and that's for reading my review of A Cinderella Story Soundtrack! :)

3-0 out of 5 stars Depends...
This CD is cool, but they overdo the Hilary Duff thing a little too much. Oh yeah, whoever said Jesse McCartney can't sing, are you deaf? He's a lot better than Hilary Duff and her sister. His two songs are probably the best on the CD, and Fallen is an awesome song too. If you like Hilary Duff, you should get this, because most songs are her and her sister. A lot of these songs will be on her new CD too. If you think she's OK, you should get it just to give it a try. You might like some of her songs. And if you can't stand her, I wouldn't get it (unless you're a die hard Jesse fan...coughcough~me~coughcough).

1-0 out of 5 stars WTF
HOW CAN U HAVE AN ALMOST COMPLETELY HILARY DUFF STUPID POP CRAP AND STICK IN AN MXPX SONG??????????

5-0 out of 5 stars I LIKE it!!
I love this CD! Especially "You Belong to Me". It's so GORGEOUS. I love it. And I also like the Hallelujah song, although I have no idea what it's about.Of course I like "I'm a Believer".That's why I bought this CD, because I love that song. I had never heard any of these songs except for the Smashmouth ones, but now I really like them. Actually I didn't like the CD that much until I listened to it a couple more times and now I love it. Leslie Carter's "Like Wow" is kinda corny, but after a while I really liked it. It's fun. "I'm on my way" cracks me up. That's a really fun song too. Here's the list of songs from my least favorite to favorite, ok?13.Bad Reputation12.True Love's First Kiss11.It is You (I have loved)10.I'm a Believer (reprise) 9.My Beloved Monster 8.All Star 7.Best Years of Our Lives 6.Like Wow! 5.Stay Home 4.I'm on My Way 3.I'm a Believer 2.Hallelujah 1.You Belong to Me ( I love it, I love it!!)This is a really fun CD. It's just FUN! So, I guess that's all I have to say. Bye!

5-0 out of 5 stars This Album Is Outstanding - Really Really!!
I had to buy this soundtrack on my way home from seeing the movie and I absolutely love it! Eels and Smash Mouth are two of my favorite bands and the songs by them here are great. The rest of the songs are a perfect mix of upbeat rock and slow pop (even the song by them annoying Baha Men is pretty good.) I must agree with others here, though. As amazed as I am by the wonderful songs in the movie, the musical score just blew me away and I'm a bit disappointed that a larger offering of it is not available on this CD. I hope DreamWorks is planning on doing the same thing they did with the "American Beauty" score and release it separately in the future. As for the language? Yes there is minor language that some parents might find questionable for very very young children, but it's nothing they probably haven't been exposed to already. So please don't let that effect your decision to buy this fantastic album!

1-0 out of 5 stars I have a question
I loved the music from the movie but have not bought the soundtrack. ive been instead, doing my "homework" on the song hallelujah, which is done by john cale in the movie. i have listened to about three versions, including the one done by jeff buckley.....only none of the versions appear to have the same lyrics as the original done by leonard cohen. why is this??????

5-0 out of 5 stars I Love Shrek
Hey, if you liked the movie, you'll like the sound track.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great CD
This is one of the best CDs I own. If you like music and lyrics, variety, songs that touch the heart and songs that are just plain fun, this CD is for you. I bought this CD after seeing the movie. I own several soundtracks, and the best ones are those that are filled with delightful surprises you don't remember from the movie. This is one of them. After two years of listening to it regularly, I just saw the movie again, and was actually a little disappointed at how little the songs are used in the movie. I used two of the songs on a compilation tape I made for my son when he was born ("You Belong to Me" and "Allstar") and will use two on a compilation tape for my wife on our anniversary ("It is You (I Have Loved)" and "I'm on My Way"). Some people complained about the different version of "Hallelujah". I have heard 4 versions of that great song, and the one on the CD is excellent. Much better than the one in the movie. You won't be disappointed! ... Read more

The best soundtracks are like movies for the ears, and O Brother, Where Art Thou? joins the likes of Saturday Night Fever and The Harder They Come as cinematic pinnacles of song. The music from the Coen brothers' Depression-era film taps into the source from which the purest strains of country, blues, bluegrass, folk, and gospel music flow. Producer T Bone Burnett enlists the voices of Alison Krauss, Gillian Welch, Emmylou Harris, Ralph Stanley, and kindred spirits for performances of traditional material, in arrangements that are either a cappella or feature bare-bones accompaniment. Highlights range from the aching purity of Krauss's "Down to the River to Pray" to the plainspoken faith of the Whites' "Keep on the Sunny Side" to Stanley's chillingly plaintive "O Death." The album's spiritual centerpiece finds Krauss, Welch, and Harris harmonizing on "Didn't Leave Nobody but the Baby," a gospel lullaby that sounds like a chorus of Appalachian angels. --Don McLeese ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The greatest movie soundtrack EVER!
With the country music airwaves currently being dominated by fresh, new artists like Faith Hill who fit better in the pop circuit, it is refreshing to see an album composed entirely of traditional bluegrass and country do as well as the soundtrack of O BROTHER WHERE ART THOU. Even further impressing is the fact that although none of the songs were released to radio, the soundtrack was propelled to the #1 spot on Billboard's country album charts solely from people hearing the music in the movie theater. This soundtrack is a phenomenal album that is proof to country fans everywhere that although traditional country has appeared to have gone out of style, it is still very much alive and well.

The O BROTHER WHERE ART THOU SOUNDTRACK is composed of nineteen songs recorded by some of the most talented country/bluegrass artists in the business, including Gillian Welch (who also served as musical director for the motion picture), Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, and the Cox Family, and and is truly a gathering of musical talent. Also included in the soundtrack is music by musicians who appeared in the film as well as working on the CD, such as the Whites and Tim Blake Nelson.

The O BROTHER WHERE ART THOU SOUNDTRACK is truly, as the CD ads claim, "The ULTIMATE American roots collection!" So, grab your acoustic guitar, fiddle, and Dapper Dan hair pomade, and let the soundtrack from O BROTHER take you on a journey through one of the greatest periods in country music history.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brothers In Arms
The soundtrack to the Coen Brothers' O Brother, Where Art Thou? is one of the biggest surprises in music for 2000. The film starring George Clooney was not much of a success at the box office, but the soundtrack made up of dark bluegrass songs from the early part of the 20th century has become a major seller. In fact the album has set a record for the most weeks at number one for a soundtrack on the Country Album charts. This is a welcomed and warmly cheered surprise as the album celebrates an essential style of music from America's rich musical history. Album producer T-Bone Burnett has assembled a cast of unknowns, save Emmylou Harris & Allison Krauss, like The Fairfield Four, Gillian Welch and J. Carter & The Prisoners who specialize in this forgotten and overlooked genre. The songs have a stark and haunting quality that are accentuated by the sparse musical arrangements. The singing is alternatively raw and rough to lilting and gorgeous. Song after song provides you with an interesting, intriguing and satisfying listening experience especially "Po Lazarus", "You Are My Sunshine", "Down To The River To Pray", "Lonesome Valley" and "Didn't Leave Nobody But My Baby".

5-0 out of 5 stars Music the way is should be
This is perhaps the best soundtrack ever made. It is a stunning mix of mostly acoustic tracks by most of the best bluegrass artists ever. There is work on here from Ralph Stanely, Allison Kraus, and Emmelou Harris, to name a few. This CD won a lot of Grammys the year that it came out, and that is because it was the best CD of that year.

Highlights include the Big Rock Candy Mountains, Man of Constant Sorrow, In the Jailhouse Now and O Death. If you have ever wondered what bluegrass sounded like but have been afraid to try, this is the CD for you. It will show you the magic that this genre of music can provide.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great but.....
This CD is fantastic, with songs that will leave you humming and tapping your feet. I would have given it 5 stars except for the fact that the primary song I wanted featuring the artists from the actual movie was not featured on the album. The version of "I'll FLy Away" from the actual movie is done by the Kossoy Sisters and is featured on their album "Bowling Green". I hope this helps anyone else who will end up trying to hunt down that origianl version.

5-0 out of 5 stars O Brother
This is the soundtrack to the Coen brothers' film based loosely on Homer's "The Odyssey". This soundtrack takes the movie from good to great. The tracks follow the progression of the movie. Nearly an hour of blue-grass music, even if you haven't seen the movie, this is worth having if you like "Old-Time" Country music and blue-grass.

The legend, Ralph Stanley, appears a couple of times here, although his "Man of Constant Sorrow" is here too, but covered by Dan Tyminski. Stanley's "O Death" is a haunting tune sung without accompaniment. His voice is sorrowful and full of pain, and will send shivers up your spine. Tyminski's cover is well done and becomes the centerpiece for the movie. The sultry voices of Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss and Gillian Welch provide a rising rendition of "Didn't Leave Nobody But the Baby." Alison Krauss also lends her voice to the spiritual "Down to the River to Pray," and joins up again with Gillian Welch for "I'll Fly Away". The surprise here is Tim Blake Nelson on lead vocals as the dimwitted Delmar on "In the Jailhouse Now."

Overall, this is a great soundtrack, and well worth owning if you like this type of music. I think the Coen brothers have done a lot with the release of this movie to turn the spotlight onto blue-grass music. This is great music that deserves more than the fifteen minutes of fame it's received. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars One obvious omission...
I couldn't get enough of this movie (have seen it 5 times already), so I just HAD to have the soundtrack. Some tracks immediately brought me back to certain scenes in the movie, others were more subtle. I didn't place them until I saw the movie the second or third time.

Kelly Clarkson's "The Trouble With Love Is" is wonderful! I've hit reply on the CD player hundreds of times.

It's also great to have "Christmas Is All Around" and "All I Want for Christmas" included on the soundtrack--highlights of both the movie and the CD.

One obvious omission from the soundtrack, however, (both the US and UK versions) is "Bye Bye Baby" by the Bay City Rollers. That song was part of a very poignant scene in the movie (at the funeral of Daniel's wife) and it also segued into the next scene as it was played at the wedding reception of Peter & Juliet while they were dancing. If that had been included this soundtrack would have been complete.

So while I enjoy the CD, some songs more than others, it always leaves me wanting just a little bit more.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic soundtrack, but stuff is missing
I loved this movie and especially the music. I felt that there were songs on this cd that were not in the film (and I've seen it six times), and that there were songs in the film that should have been on the cd.

I ended up getting the UK soundtrack as well. The UK version has a different version of "Jump for my love" (a really rockin' version!!!) that is by "Girls Aloud", it has the whole song of "sweetest goodbye" (for some stupid reason the US version cuts it off halfway through to go into some other song), it has some other song I don't remember from the flick called "sometimes", plus two orchestral themes that are not on the US soundtrack.

What kills me is that neither soundtrack has the opening theme, the one that branches off from the "christmas is all around" recording scene. It's such a great piece! But then, I'm a music freak and most people probably don't even care or notice. But I miss it and it drives me nuts that I can't hear it without going back to the theatre.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very moving
If you liked the movie, you will enjoy this soundtrack. It has some very good and memorable cues from the film, especially Track 14, "Glasgow Love Theme". Always reminds me of the scene in the movie itself... and I would have to recommend this piece the most out of any track. Billy Mack's "Christmas Is All Around" also will make you re-live the Christmas Eve moment. I highly recommend this soundtrack, and especially Track 14!

3-0 out of 5 stars Actually love this music...
I really liked this movie when I saw it and I especially loved the way music played such a big role in the story. I knew I needed to have the soundtrack. The tracks listed are beautiful but I have to confess, it's just better in the movie. The music lost some of its magic from the record store to my home. I find myself constantly skipping over some of the middle songs which, to me, are just not that important or even likeable. I couldn't even remember where they came in the movie.

However, there are some in there that hit the nail on the head and bring the scene back to you EXACTLY. You'll find the very great "Both Sides Now", "Jump" (insert images of Hugh Grant dancing here), "All You Need Is Love", the beautiful "Turn Me On", the hilarious "Christmas Is All Around", and the awesome, AWESOME cover of "All I Want For Christmas".

I have to say, it's a worthwhile cd after all and I recommend it to anyone who admires the nice mix of songs (take note though, Amazon only lists 14 tracks of the 17 actually included) and to anyone who liked this great movie.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent CD, has ALL the tracks I wanted!
I wasn't sure if all the tracks I wanted would be on this one, but they are! There are 17 total, including All I Want for Christmas. This is a wonderfully put together soundtrack. ... Read more

Writer/director Charles Shyer's reinvention of the beloved 60's morality tale about a serial-womanizer's quest for meaning in life is musically rooted in a voice that's lived the experience: Mick Jagger. And if the Stones' oft-cliched frontman seems a decidedly left-field choice as film scorer, his chemistry with collaborator/former Eurythmics musical spark Dave Stewart yields a surprisingly warm, often introspective slate of songs and atmospheric underscore. Jagger's solo work has often been muddied by chasing the pop production zeitgeist of the moment, but his efforts with Stewart here largely turn on a stripped-down, organic folk-blues sensibility that can't escape mostly positive parallels with the Stones' own acoustic oeuvre. Soul singer Joss Stone turns in a masterfully bluesy cover of the original film's hit Bacharach-David theme song that belies her teenage years (also interpolating it into Stewart/Jagger's "Wicked Time," which also features noted Jamaican rapper "Nadz" Seid), while Sheryl Crow duets with Jagger on the single version of the song-score's thematic anchor, "Old Habits Die Hard." -- Jerry McCulley ...

Put together by Abba's own Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, Mamma Mia! manages to cram over 20 of the Swedish supergroup's songs into a threadbare plot. It goes a little like this: Young Sophie is getting married and she's trying to identify which of three men is her father. That's about it. Wisely, the musical doesn't mess around with the songs, save for the insertion of some dialogue or for having some of them performed by a man (it works amazingly well). Abba fans will jump on this import of the London production, but traditional fans of musical theater should consider it as well. After all, Andersson and Ulvaeus's songs have always felt as if they were more than isolated pop gems and actually belonged to a longer narrative. --Elisabeth Vincentelli ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Mamma Mia Groupies
"Mamma Mia" is an experience to behold. If this show does not lift your spirit and leave a big smile on your face, nothing will. We have the previledge of seeing "Mamma Mia" twice during its recent Chicago run. We will be seeing it again in Toronto in a couple of months. We are becoming regular "Mamma Mia" groupies!

The CD does not quite capture the energy and exhilaration that one experiences during the live show, but it will remind you the great time that you had. We now prefer this CD over the original ABBA version of the songs because it tells a funny and poignant story. The singers on this CD are all just fine. Our 2-year old loves this CD and requests it whenever he just wants to goof around the house.

Some of the outstanding players that we saw in Chicago, namely Louise Pitre and Tina Madigan, are now playing in the Broadway edition of "Mamma Mia." We hope that a CD version of the Broadway Cast will be forthcoming, and please include the unforgettable final curtain call encore that is missing on this CD. Those of you who have seen the show know just how that encore brings the house down everytime.

5-0 out of 5 stars MAMMA MIA - WHAT AN ALBUM!
Recently I saw the show Mamma Mia on Broadway and couldn't wait to buy the album. As a fan of Abba for many years I have many of their original recordings. But I wanted this CD for several reasons. First it offered many of my favorite songs on one album. Second it provided me with wonderful images of the show which I loved. And lastly, one can never have enough albums of Abba music.

I know that many reviewers and listeners continue to object to the London cast on the album but I found it made little difference to me. The selection of songs are wonderful, among them Money, Money and Thank You for the Music which are my favorites. And as you listen to them you will find the lyircs music have an energy and vitality which will have you tapping your feet and singing along. Also included aer wit, humro and pathos at times. Whether or not you can see the show, consider buying this album. And see if after only one song you don't become the dancing queen yourself.

2-0 out of 5 stars ABBA, YOU ROCK, MAMA MIA, YOU DON'T
I DO NOT SAY THIS IS A BAD MUSICAL, IT'S JUST THIS CD MAKES IT SEEM LIKE IT. I AM TOTALLY LOST. IS THIS THE ORIGINAL BROADWAY SOUNDTRACK OR THE ORIGINAL LONDON CD? (...)

1-0 out of 5 stars REAL Broadway Cast Recording PLEASE !
I just saw this marvelous and upbeat show on Broadway - Dee Hoty(Donna)..Jenny Fellner(Sophie-just adorable)..Harriet Foy(Rosie)..Tamara Bernier(Tanya). I purchased the CD at the theater -- very ambiguously labeled "Broadway Cast Recording" and then ORIGINAL LONDON CAST. Whatever the reason for such labeling what a huge mistake to label it as 'Broadway'. I agree with previous critiques that the British recording is bland, underplayed. I must add absolutely BORING compared to what I saw and heard last week. On the British recording each song was rendered the same as another...same beats...no great belt voices (could have used AT LEAST Elaine Paige as Donna)...Donna and Sophie sound identical. All those little, young voices the British seem to favor. We in the U.S.A. like voices with MEAT. This is BROADWAY -- like no other venue on earth -- and deserves it's own cast recording, especially when the performance I saw was 100% more melodious, energetic, harmonious (some of the arrangements seemed quite different) and theatrical. AFTER the last song (I HAVE A DREAM) is when the fun began! The performance involving Curtain Calls and mini concert was the best thing and an absolute surprise. The whole theater was up and rockin'. So WHAT'S THE SCOOP? Cast Recordings of every horrible Broadway show are released -- why not this phenomenon? Dee Hoty has just the right maturity and huskiness to her voice. Tanya and Rosie were marvelous -- comic foils to each other with belts to win stars. The CD version of DOES YOUR MOTHER KNOW made me cry -- from sheer frustration -- after the rendition I heard by Ms. Bernier! The three "dads" (John Hillner, Adam Lefevre, Michael Winther) seemed more human in (sight and) their sound and the voices were markedly different and easy to distinguish one from another, unlike the British recording where you sometimes cannot tell the women from the men!

PLEASE, SOMEONE WHO CARES! Issue a true Broadway Cast Recording and cut us a break! The wonderful ABBA score deserves better than the vocalizations on this CD. How did it become such a hit sung like this? Not much talent there.

3-0 out of 5 stars Better at the show
I saw Mamma Mia last weekend in Baltimore and it was amazing. The singers were just UNBELIEVABLE! However, the singers on the CD aren't nearly as great as those on tour. If you want the good music, go buy tickets. Still, buy this CD. I love the music from Mamma Mia, even if these singers aren't the best. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Should've won an Oscar.
The use of classical music in the "Master" soundtrack is inspired.

Yo-Yo Ma's playing of the first of J.S Bach's Unaccompanied Cello Suites seems perfect for the scenes on the Galapagos Islands. The snippets of Mozart's Violin Concerto # 3 and Boccherini's sublime "Musica Notturna" are well chosen as the music played by the captain and the doctor.

Those eager to hear more by Baroque composer Luigi Boccherini, whose swoon-worthy piece, "Passacalle," closes the movie, will find what seems to be the original recording of it on the CD "Respighi: Fontane di Roma, Pini di Roma," by the Berlin Philharmonic, directed by Herbert Von Karajan. The last five tracks are Boccherini's "La Musica Notturna Delle Strade di Madrid" op.30 No.6, including "Passacalle." That's the danceable, contemporary-sounding number at the end of the movie, the one in which Paul Bettany and Russell Crowe pick up their instruments and strum them like guitars, and Bettany (or his counterpart in the Berlin Philharmonic)launches into a passage high on the top string.

For those who wish to hear more of Mozart's violin concertos, several great recordings are available, one by Arthur Grumiaux with the London Symphony Orchestra. Listen to the third movement for the passage used so effectively in one of the captain-doctor jam sessions.

5-0 out of 5 stars "ALL ART ASPIRES TO THE CONDITION OF MUSIC"
-
This sound track CD is excellent. I have been listening to it a lot since I received it from Amazon. Please see my review of the DVD movie, which contains more comments about the music on this CD.
Here are some excerpts from my DVD review:
...The overall musical presentations of this film are very impressive, and the CD of the musical score is far from a disappointment. The skillfully repetitious use of percussion instruments throughout the film successfully recreates the sound of a thumping on the ship's hull: a sound that chills the heart of every sailor and alerts him to danger. The blood, the bravery, the glories of battle, as well as the continued yearning to acquire knowledge and explore the unknown, are punctuated by the music of Mozart, Corelli, Bach, and Boccherini, each of whom is the product of a refined, highly developed European culture, represented here by one French and one British warship on the untamed, empty sea...

...The original score's musical reverberations suggest a beating against the hull, rather than the sound of cannons shooting-there is no sharp "crack" as might be expected with the sound of gunfire. This simplicity of deep aboriginal-like drumming is a counterpoint to the sweet complexity of the classical compositions punctuating the story...If, indeed, all art aspires to the condition of music, then the miraculous melodies in this film represents the culmination of two thousand, and more, years of unequaled European cultural achievements. Listen to it! Experience it!

5-0 out of 5 stars wonderful music stands alone
I have been listening to this CD regularly since January and have yet to be bored with it. It has a wonderful variety of the powerful, serious and playful. And it gives more complete versions of the music in the film.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great!
I really enjoy all the pieces on this CD. When the music is not being played in the movie it still sounds good. The Mozart piece is the best.

2-0 out of 5 stars Ok but not at all great
When I watched the movie I don't even recall remembering much of the music. Maybe I wasn't paying attention or maybe it wasn't so good that my ears even wanted to pick it up. When I watched the movie a second time I payed more attetion to the score and the result was. The score wasn't all that good. An OK but nothing more. ... Read more

This final chapter of Peter Jackson's sprawling adaptation of Tolkien's "Ring" trilogy closes out one of the most accomplished cycles in cinema--and film music--history. As he's done for the saga's first two installments, composer Howard Shore has honed a mature, brooding orchestral masterpiece that's long on subtle shadings of mood and nuance, while eschewing the hollow bombast that's characterized all too many mainstream action and adventure films for three decades. If anything, he's pared this chapter of his music for Middle Earth even closer to the bone, the trilogy's familiar themes repeated with a sparing hand that only heightens their dramatic power. Like Herrmann before him, Shore has a preternatural understanding of orchestral timbres and their almost mystical connections with human emotions, and he's used it here to close out this remarkable trilogy with Wagnerian dramatic sweep, yet one with a distinctly modern, understated melodic sense that is Shore's alone. James Galway and Renee Fleming make key instrumental and vocal contributions, respectively, while Annie Lennox's soulful "Into the West" makes the expected, if unobtrusive, bow to the theatrical pop song conventions.--Jerry McCulley ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A Satisfying Conclusion
I had high expectations for this soundtrack, and at first I was rather disappointed in what I heard. Most of the songs seemed almost the same, soft and wandering.

However, I soon discarded that and came to my senses. To fully enjoy the music of Return of the King one must listen to the entire disc together. This helped me get the feel of what seemed to be missing.

Overall, while I enjoyed the soundtrack, I believe the first two sounded much more wholesome, more rich with a varied sound to it.

There were less loud, rousing pieces to this edition, the only real ones being "Minas Tirith" and "The Pelennor Fields".

The real highlight of the CD was the final track "Into the West", sung by Annie Lennox. It makes up for all the shortcomings I think lay in this album and almost sinlge-handedly proves the CD's worth. It is an incredible song incorporating text from the novel and manages to sound both sad and joyful at the same time. If Howard Shore and Annie Lennox are not awarded at the Academy Awards this year for their efforts, then there is no justice left in this world.

5-0 out of 5 stars Music Have Never Sounded This Good; Beautiful pieces!
This soundtrack is simply amazing. From start to finish, I was enthralled by the beautiful sounds of Middle-Earth that Howard Shore has created.

A Storm Is Coming is a combination of several past sounds with new music incorporated into one beautiful introduction. Hope And Memory is one of my favourites; in fact its my ultimate favourite! This part was when Gandalf and Peregrin Took ride to Minas Tirith. A touching piece. Minas Tirith theme is another awesome track with loud and bold sounds of the horn. With the voice of Ben del Mestro adds more color and beauty to the city of Minas Tirith.

The Steward Of Gondor is a wonderful piece with the voice of Billy Boyd (when Gondor's army march to the city of Osgilliath to retake it under the order of Lord Denethor). It sounds so sad in the end.

Another of my favorites is Twilight And Shadow. I must confess that ALL compositions by Howard for the Elf kind is always soothing and filled with so much emotions. This song is so sad when Arwen is leaving to the West and sees the vision of her son with Aragorn. Her determination to be with the latter is so strong that she went back to Rivendell. The music suits the scene so well.

The rest of the pieces are beautiful as well and I can't describe all cos it'll be super long. All I can say is that this soundtrack is a classic and will be one of those songs that will be familiar to you 10 years down the road.
Kudos to Howard Shore. Amazing work of perfection.

5-0 out of 5 stars Into the West and into Greatness
In a time when most studios bank on a combination of bubble gum pop, hip hop and rap to sell soundtracks for a film, we are gifted with true greatness. Howard Shore looked at each film as a separate entity that required a continuous bridge as a theme, and different voices to carry each movie to the next. You had Enya (May it Be) for Fellowship of the Ring. For the Two Towers it was Sheila Chandra (Breath of Life), Isabel Bayrakdarian (Evenstar), Ben Del Maestro (Forth Eorlingas, and with Elizabeth Fraser on Isengard Unleashed) and Emiliana Torrini (Gollum's Song.)

On the final soundtrack, we get a host of voices to treasure. We have the sublime in Renee Fleming (Twilight and Shadow, The End of All Things) and Ben del Maestro (Minas Tirith). We also have the flute of James Galway (The Black Gate Opens, The Grey Havens.) But what is most endearing is the voice of Billy Boyd (The Steward of Gondor)and Viggo Mortensen (The Return of the King) singing laments to mark their historical journeys.

Peter Jackson has created a gut wrenching, emotional trilogy. Howard Shore has blessed us with music that grabs your heart and soul and never lets go. I highly recommend all three magnificant sound tracks.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
Howard Shore has proved himself as a musical genius in The Lord of the Rings soundtracks. As the Amazon reviewer said, he mystically ties emotion and music into one beautifully. Every single track has something special here. I have never before heard music that could be so haunting, so inspiring, so beautiful, and so deeply emotional as this. If you are a LOTR fan, or just a fan of soundtracks, this is a must-buy. You will not be dissappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars excelent and epic...
This score was beautifully, and masterfully crafted. I love the "Into the West" Theme that occurs so often... The song Grey Havens nearly brought me to tears the first time I heard it and continues to be one of the most beatiful pieces of music I have ever heard written for an orchestra. Every time I hear it, I get chills. This score takes you places as only excelent music can do. Howard Shore is a gifted and brilliant composer and director... This score and its two companion scores (LOTR 1 and 2) are incredibly moving and well-crafted! ... Read more

Fashion be damned: Pop culture is just one big Hometown Buffet forwriter-director Quentin Tarantino. Nowhere has that sensibility beenmore apparent than on his hand-picked soundtrack choices, and this ofttongue-in-cheek tale of a female assassin's revenge (his first film insix years) is no exception. With dizzy, almost palpable glee, Tarantinoevokes the international hall-of-mirrors influences that energizemartial arts films and much of Asian pop culture in general. Thus thehip-hop of Wu Tang's RZA (who, along with composer Charles Bernstein,concocts what passes for the score's traditional cues) somehow findsitself but one ingredient in a heady souffle that includes vintage TVand film cue rarities (Al Hirt's main title from The Green Hornet,Bernard Herrmann's haunting theme from Twsited Nerve, the spaghettiwestern melodrama of Luis Bacalov's "The Grand Duel," Isaac Hayes infull blaxploitation mode on "Run Fay Run"), Charlie Feathers' vintagerockabilly and a pan-kitsch sensibility that encompasses Zamfir, NancySinatra's angst-in-the-pants take "Bang, Bang" and Santa Esmeralda'sdisco-era workout of "Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood." Tarantino'scontemporary Japan-Pop selections are no less giddy, ranging from MeikoKaji's sultry "Flower of Carnage" to The 5.6.7.8's loopy "Woo Hoo." It'severything we've come to expect from a Tarantino score (including dialogexcerpts and a few sound fx stingers), with a madcap trip around the popmusic world thrown in for good measure.-- Jerry McCulley ...

I love this Cd! is my favorite!, it combines since classic music and western to soul, it's fantastic!, i like "Don't let me be misunderstood", "Green Hornet" and "Battle without honor or humanity". I don't care that it hasn't ALL the songs of the movie, but it got the bests. For the person that write in his review that "Seven notes in Black", is not in the CD, better check out the titles behind your disk and you can see that "Seven Notes in Black" is the same song that "Ode to Oren Ishi". Bye bye.

There's a song missing from the soundtrack not mentioned by the previous reviewers. It's the song that's whistled by Elle Driver as she enters the hospital to kill the Bride. The song is a piece from Dressed to Kill, the Brian De Palma movie. It was arranged by Bernard Herrman. It would be nice to have this on CD. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great movie, but missing a great song on soundtrack
The movie was great and so is the soundtrack--for the most part. I agree with the people who have posted reviews before me...the soundtrack is missing that great song from the Diane Keaton/Keanu Reeves scene in her kitchen. I hate to post such a question here, but does anyone know what the name of that song is and who sings it? It isn't "Sunday Morning" by Maroon 5 as a previous poster suggested. I am sure that it wasn't Jamiroquai, as I did not see it listed in the song credits after the film, but it sounded a lot like him. If anyone can figure it out......please post!

4-0 out of 5 stars song titles and boum boum!
The album is good on its own, it's very relaxing, and perfectly evokes the part in the movie where Erica was doing her writing and Harry was around.. It would've been REALLY great if it had included all the contemporary songs like Paul Simon's "Learn How to Fall", the Krazytown song "Butterfly" and Maroon 5's "Sunday Morning", Earth Wind and Fire's "Sing a Song". And the song someone here was looking for is really titled "Boum Boum", sung by Charles Trenet. All the more contemporary songs weren't in the album, so disappointing! I hope they decide to release another soundtrack to the album, with all the missing songs.

4-0 out of 5 stars Song at the end of credits
I'm also looking for that haunting music that plays whenever Jack and Diane are together. It also plays at the very end of the movie as the final credits roll. Can anyone tell us the name of the song and the artist? It's an instrumental.You can e-mail me at jbballi@hotmail.com.

Thanks,

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome! and the mysterious song...
A Great Movie and CD...the mysterious song that plays when Harry and Erica are together on piano, then guitar is called Remember Me and is featured on this CD

3-0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTED
Great movie. Disappointing CD as there are only 14 tracks of the 28 from the movie on the CD. What a let down. I loved all the tracks. I most certainly would/will pay double to have all of the tracks. Come on SONY do me/us a big favour and release the real sound track. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars "I go to the hills when my heart is lonely..."
This brand-new 35th Anniversary Edition of the classic 1965 film soundtrack features two discs in beautiful packaging. (Okay, the purple coloring on the discs is a bit much)... the CD booklet is filled with pictures and is wonderful. Disc 2 features extended versions of several songs and many tracks (mostly orchestral) not included on the 1965 soundtrack, and an interview with Richard Rodgers. What is the enchantment of "Sound Of Music??" Maybe it's because the film and myself both turn 35 this year, but it really has a lot to do with Julie Andrews as Maria. Like another customer wrote, I always think of Julie Andrews, and not Broadway's Mary Martin, as Maria. Also, Andrews' devastating 1997 operation that left her without a singing voice, adds a note of sadness to this recording (as well as Andrews' classic Broadway performances in MY FAIR LADY and CAMELOT) as we recognize what has been lost. I recently saw a disappointing stage production of "Sound Of Music" and returned to the film and this soundtrack with a sense of refreshment, renewal, and even inspiration.

5-0 out of 5 stars A more merciful review - more praise with some minor flaws
I remember once "advising" beginners to shy off this version not because of performace quality, which is just perfect, but because of presentation of the music material. However, because of listening to the soundtrack a little bit more often. I feel as if Ihave changed my views more positively. Of course, we still have Julie Andrews and her crystalline voice, but we also have sparkling children, a convincing Captain and a soul-stirring Mother Abbess taking their place on the album just as they have been always doing, alongside the towering Irwin Kostal orchestrations and arrangements. This edition does indeed put most of the icing on the cake with the clear, sparkling remastering and the tantalising bonus material available for us to have forever. At long last, we have the additional appearance of Edelweiss after the Lonely Goatherd puppet sequence (and an extended version of its folk festival reappearance - the only rendition of the song used on the original soundtrack), the Landler, the Salzburg Montage harnessed to an extended My Favourite Things, the second-act reprise of Sixteen Going on Seventeen, and the complete chase music, all sounding remarkably vivid after 35 years in the Fox vaults, enough to make you recall the scenes in the movie so vividly. The only things I can carp about are the slightly murky sound quality during certain moments on the first disc, the obvious lack of completeness (as always) and the value of the set.

The murky sound quality on certain parts of certain tracks of the first disc does not bother one at all, because they don't affect the parts of the soundtrack you are supposed to be enjoying. However, once you get down to listening to the remastered soundtrack, it will be easy to notice the pristine sound that improves this issue over the others. (The fact about pristine sound also applies to the second disc.) However, once you get over with this problem, there are still more serious qualms. This release is obviously not really ABSOLUTELY complete, as ttere are some missing musical segments (the Act One finale waltzes based on Edelweiss and the deleted song How Can Love Survive, the Entr'acte, the children's dejected-sounding reprise of My Favourite Things with Maria making it better half-way through by joining in, and the folk festival reprises of Do-Re-Mi and So Long, Farewell.) In addition, the original versions of the Overture and the Preludium prayer sequence are not included, as they seem to sound better and more complete when separated rather than when allowed to seague into each other as in the original soundtrack, along with the complete wedding sequence, also not included here. Also, the price is quite expensive, as it's clear that record companies keep reissuing and improving certain albums such as this by adding previously unreleased music until they are perfect and complete - all at the consumer's expense. Once that's said and done, you can easily get down to enjoying this classic soundtrack in the splendour of a sparkling new digital remastering and new video transfers of this classic film.

To sum everything up, I still can say I feel happy and satisfied with this new reissue of the soundtrack, even despite some minor quibbles and snags, but I feel as if I will not stop rallying until I see the ABSOLUTELY COMPLETE version released and made available. Perhaps the Richard Rodgers centennial celebrations next year will provide the right impetus for the R&H organisation to get 20th-Century Fox and RCA Victor to release and reissue the soundtrack in its original album and expanded versions COMPLETE on 2 CDs, with the original album taking up one disc (with all the outtakes as fillers) and the COMPLETE expanded edition taking up the other - all at a twofer bargain price. Still, I will be more than happy to recommend this soundtrack to the beginning purchaser, and it still makes a wonderful, if extravogant, way to acquire a classic in a sparkling and attractive new dress.

BTW, I would suggest checking out the new Broadway cast recording of the show and purchasing it along with this equally excellent version, as it presents a top-quality performance and is like a stage production in the spirit of the film, to give yourselves an alternate view and a more conceptual performance of the show.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love it!
Simply perfect for adults and kids. Will addict for a lifetime.

5-0 out of 5 stars iwould like the cd as you canot buy it in nz

1-0 out of 5 stars A ridiculous way to release a complete recording
I was horrified when I was browsing the record store and saw how this supposedly complete disc was arranged. I have no doubt that it sounds fine, but under the circumstances, it is a waste of money and I refused to buy it.

The manufacturers have done nothing more on this "Sound of Music" re-release than add a second CD containing everything that had to be omitted from the LP and other CD versions of the film soundtrack album. RCA Victor, it seems, could not be bothered to start from the beginning and do the same beautiful job that Angel Records did with the enhanced editions of the "Oklaoma!", "Carousel", and "The King and I" soundtracks. The makers of those CD's saw to it that all the songs as well as the previously omitted material were all sequenced IN THE ORDER THAT IT APPEARED IN THE FILM.

But, apparently, doing this is too much work for RCA Victor. Instead of giving us the pleasure of being able to listen to all the songs and music in its proper order, so that we can get the feeling that we are listening to the soundtrack as it ought to be heard and experienced, we have to sit through the soundtrack album exactly as it was issued for its previous incarnation, and then put on ANOTHER CD so that we can listen to the background music and other versions of the tracks heard on the first CD in the set.

This is just sloppy and insensitive thinking. Why would RCA release a soundtrack album of a beloved film in an edition like this, when Rhino, with its M-G-M soundtrack series, and Angel, with its enhanced editions of three Rodgers and Hammerstein musical films, have done such a superlative job on their soundtracks?

The answer, of course, is pure laziness. They have the most successful and beloved film musical on their hands, so RCA Victor assumes that listeners will automatically buy any version of it, no matter how it is issued.

Shame on them. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great disney Cd
The Cheetah Girls soundtrack is a really awesome cd. The only thing that bugs me is that there is only 8 songs and the cd is only 20 min. long, but otherwise it's great. My fave. is "Together We Can", here is my review.

Cheetah Girls-10/10-my second fave i love the slow beginning to the rockin' guitar to the upbeat part. awesome song!!
Cinderalla-9/10-awesome song, catchy beat and cool lyrics.
Girl Power-9/10-love the title, cute song.
Together We Can-10/10-My Favorite!!! Catchy, Catchy lyrics and beat, wish it was longer-awesome!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Where ya going with this?
What crap is this!!!! It's so simple. All songs last like 2:55 at the most! That ain't a CD, those are just words! That "3LW" should not have broken up and Raven is making her image a total disaster! But, on the up-side the other "Cheetah" we should say, is great because she is only BEGINING her stardom.

5-0 out of 5 stars EXELLENT!!!!
This is a great cd! I listen to it 24/7. Here is what I think these songs should be rated:

1.Cheetah Sisters: 5/5 This was my favorite song!
2.Cinderella: 5/5 This has great lyrics + great singers!
3.Girl Power: 4/5 This song is pretty good....
4.Together We Can: 5/5 This song is good. It tells about friendship.
5.C'mon: 0/5 I HATED it!!! (Not to mention that I also hate rap.)
6.Girlfriend: 4/5 I can't remember why I didn't like this song...
7.Breakthrough: 3/5 This song is OK...
8.End of the Line: 4 [and]1/2[out of]/5 This song is pretty sad. That's why it's not my favorite.

Well hope you enjoyed this review! Thanks 4 reading it!!! ... Read more

Marc Shaiman, the former SNL musical director/film composer who scored an Oscar nomination for his collaboration on South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut and makes occasional contributions here, once called SP co-creator Trey Parker "the biggest heterosexual show queen" he'd ever met. The satirical songs Parker wrote (and sometimes performs) for he and Matt Stone's inventive, marionette-starring skewering ofHollywood action films, American foreign intrigues and political correctness of various stripes only confirms Parker's status as the idiot savant Sondheim. Trey's musical desecration here is as hilarious as it is equal opportunity, variously taking aim at manipulative Broadway fare (the Rent send-up "Everyone Has AIDS"), patriotism-pimping country stars like Toby Keith ("Freedom Isn't Free"), schlock ballad queen Diane Warren ("Only A Woman") and mindlessly jingoistic macho-rock anthems ("America, Fuck Yeah"). Parker's unlikely showcase for North Korean dictator Kim Il Jong ("I'm So Ronery") manages to be loopy, genuinely touching and typically un-PC all at once. The underscore cues by Harry Gregson-Williams take informed, if more subtle jabs at his own oeuvre and that of his oft cliché-ridden colleagues: heroic marches, nervous techno and uber brooding orchestral cues played so straight that context is often the only clue to their parody intent. It's a welcome puncturing of much bloated Hollywood pomposity -- and far and away our favorite soundtrack of the year. --Jerry McCulley ... Read more

There's an ocean of reasons Nickelodeon fans andmoviegoers will want to own the SpongeBob SquarePants Movie soundtrack, not least of which is its cover art. Even if such aesthetic considerations bore you--even if the movie itself bores you, you'll want to dive right in, because the packaging pales in comparison to the content. Skate-punk queen Avril Lavigne cranks up the guitars for a caffeinated cover of the cartoon theme; the Flaming Lips figure out what happens when "SpongeBob & Patrick Confront the Psychic Wall of Energy;" alt-rock heroes Wilco revisit music simpler than what's on their latest discs with "Just a Kid;" and indie rockers the Shins let it rip on "They'll Soon Discover." Lesser-known acts Ween and Electrocute also contribute, and they're matched in the keep-up-the-tempo challenge by characters including Patrick. His track, the barely listenable "Under My Rock," earns him the dubious distinction of the disc's biggest bellyflopper, but overall audiences will be squeezed to find a recent soundtrack as absorbing. --Tammy La Gorce ...

An Oscar win might suggest a score that would need a miracle to be bettered--but this colorful stage adaptation of Disney's The Lion King does so with flair. Composers Mark Mancina and Lebo M worked closely together to fuse the movie's many disparate elements. Where there was a veritable army exercising creative influences for the animated tale, this brings it all under the wings of a like-minded few. This is genuinely apparent as one track flows into the next. The African rhythms--both vocal and in instrumentation--come across as authentic and original all at once. No doubt this is largely through Mancina's passion for peculiar instruments and the possibilities suggested from nightly live performances. "Grasslands Chant" is a good place to hear this. The hit favorites are here of course, but both "Circle of Life" and "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" are pleasingly unrecognizable with chorus and shifting beats. Better still is the likelihood they will now be eclipsed by some of the new numbers. Mancina's own "He Lives in You" being a strong contender. With a sound mix as crisp as you'd hope to find, this is rousing stuff. --Paul Tonks ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Innovative Theatre Meets Family Entertainment
First of all, to address some of the other reviewers who didn't believe "The Lion King" deserved the Tony: What the American Theatre Wing recognized is an historic and important step in theatre history. "The Lion King" on Broadway didn't attempt to merely transfer the cartoon images of the movie onto the stage (a la Beauty and the Beast). Instead, through the guidance of genius director and designer Julie Taymor, the glorious story was lifted and transformed through mask, puppetry, and dance into a multi-disciplinary wonder. I'm a professional puppeteer, and the response of the puppetry community to this show is staggering. Curriculums are being reworked, new parterships are forming, and a puppetry renaissance has begun.

Now, onto this CD: I can understand that if you haven't seen the staged version, you wouldn't expect to hear the changes that have been made to the soundtrack. Fortunately, I was given the CD "Rhythm of the Pridelands" before seeing the show. Many of the new songs are from that album, which was new music inspired by the movie "Lion King" and written by Lebo M, the talented African artist whose voice you hear in the movie version of "Circle of Life." This soundtrack is a unique and exciting blending of the original soundtrack and "Pridelands," and has an organic and harmonious feel to it. The new African chants serve to balance the more cutesy tunes from the movie. In the end, there is something for everyone. Listen without prejudice, and discover the beauty of the music.

5-0 out of 5 stars FOLLOWING A BAD TREND, BUT JERKING THE TEARS
If you're thinking of not buying this CD because you already have the movie soundtrack, HOLD IT RIGHT THERE! Not only does the Original Broadway Cast Recording have more songs than there are in the movie, but the original songs have been adapted and, in some cases, lengthened quite a lot. To be honest, there are a few poor attempts of "filler" and trying to add something with a rock edge, but the beautiful, rhythmic african chants and additions such as "Shadowland" and "Endless Night" bring tears to my eyes. They're worth paying for the entire thing. This CD gives you more of an emotional look at all of the characters and their despair. Disney followed the same trend they did with BEAUTY by adding a dozen songs with only a couple worth listening to, but they're tear jerkers and if you just sit back and listen to the chants and ballads, they're sure to touch your heart as they did mine... just skip the stuff in between. But it's a MUST HAVE for anyone even SLIGHTLY interested. Cuz I'm not even a Lion King Movie fan.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST BROADWAY MUSICAL SINCE EVITA!
AS YOU SEE, THERE ARE A LOT OF BROADWAY SHOWS ON BROADWAY NOW. YOU KNOW, YOU GOT MAMA MIA, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, AVENUE Q AND SO ON AND SO FORTH. YOU KNOW WHAT'S THE BEST? THE LION KING OF COURSE! AND THIS CD SPOTLIGHTS ALL THE CLASSIC CAST LIKE JOHN VICERY, [THE MAN I USED TO LOOK UP TO.] JASON RAIZE, [HE DIED A FEW MONTHS AGO. I MISS HIM SOOOOOO MUCH.] AND THE REST! IF YOU HAVE TO BUY ONE BROADWAY SOUNDTRACK, BUY THIS ONE! IT ROCKS! AND THEN GO SEE THE MUSICAL! SURE, IT'S ABOUT 200 DOLLORS...BELIVE ME,IT'S SO WORTH IT. THIS CD HAS AN AWSOME BOOKLET INCLUDING SOME PICTURES IN THE BACKROUND, LYRICS, AND SO MUCH MORE. AND IF THATS NOT GOOD ENOUGH, I DON'T KNOE WHAT TO TELL YA.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Really Good CD
I bought this because because I wanted a soundtrack for the Lion King and I was tempted just to buy the Disney one, but I thought this might be more interesting. I was paticuarly interested in the fact that there was more African music. It was really great. Even stuff like Circle of Life had a slightly different sound to it, and the whole thing had a much better atmosphere than Disney gave the film. What I love about it is that it isn't just another Disney soundtrack, but it really has it's own interesting sound. Go buy it!

5-0 out of 5 stars LOVED IT!
The Lion King (1997 Original Broadway Cast) soundtrack is amazing. When I went to the play, I knew I wanted to buy the CD. I loved the music live and from the CD. I listen to it everyday.

3-0 out of 5 stars Re:help me find the song/artist
I enjoyed this soundtrack a ton, but the exclusions are annoying.
The song Melissa mentioned is called "Woman Trouble" by Artful Dodger (singers are Craig David/Robbie Craig). Incredible song - excellent choice for the scene. Too bad it didn't make it the original soundtrack album (it's on the "Extra Tracks/Import" one). I'd suggest getting Dodger's album ("It's all About the Stragglers") - fantastic stuff.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have For Bridget Jones Fans!
First off, I didn't even know that this sequel soundtrack to one of my favorite movies even existed until I saw it listed here at Amazon.com! I bought it right away because just absolutely loved the movie and the soundtrack, and imagine my surprise when the second soundtrack ended up being just as good as the first!! It's full of songs that were sadly left off of the first, such as TLC's Waterfalls, Robbie Williams's Angel, and The Supremes Ain't No Mountain High Enough. Also, much to my delight was an aucustic version of my favorite song from the move, Gabrielle's Out of Reach. This CD's been in my car stereo since I received it in the mail and I've been listening to it everyday. It has such a wide range of tunes, from current hits to old school Rock 'N Roll, that you'll be entertained throughout your listening experience. If you loved the movie, and the first soundtrack, you'll definitly love this one too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first one
I should start off by saying that I like everything Bridget. However, I try not to let that cloud my judgment about things. That said, I have to recommen this cd to everyone out there.

The first one was great and loaded with the more popular songs in the movie. This one goes a step further and includes a few more songs in the movie and a whole lot of songs that might somehow relate to the story or the character and are incredibly cool. Everything adds up and just meshes really well. It's come to the point where I don't listen to it with Bridget in mind, I just like it and it's a permanent fixture in my car's cd player.

Looking for really cool music? You can go for this nice mixture of pop, soft rock, covers, and v. v. cool songs even Bridget would regularly listen to.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best since the Forrest Gump Soundtrack
I was really thrilled when I received this from Amazon. I had seen it on there, not even knowing there was an other addition out there. This is so fantastic. The reason why I love it is because it's got a huge mix of music for each generation for music lovers to enjoy.
There's 20 songs which is totally worth buying. Some of my favorite songs on this album are: Someone Like You (Van Morrison), My Lovin' (You're Never Going to Get It) (En Vogue), Ain't No Mountain High Enough (Diana Ross), Out of Reach (My favorite song in this CD) by Gabrielle, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow (The Shirelles), Waterfalls (TLC), and Robbie Williams Angels which I had the first time ever heard his beautiful voice. If you haven't seen Brigdet Jones your missing out but you don't need to see the movie to absoultely love this soundtrack. Even though a handful of these songs were not in the movie they fit the theme of Bridget Jones very nicely. So it's definately not only a must get for Bridget fans but also for music lovers.

5-0 out of 5 stars If you liked the music and artists in the movie, BUY THIS!!
I loved this CD!! In addition to being a fan of the movie, I fell in love with the music. Imagine my disappointment, when I found out that CD issued in the States didn't include the original artists from the movies.

Thank God for Amazon. This is just wonderful, wonderful stuff! This CD truly recaptures the magic from the movie! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A cute soundtrack to an "okay" movie
I wasn't thrilled with the movie Ella Enchanted, but I loved the music on the ELLA ENCHANTED SOUNDTRACK. Here are a few highlights of the disk:

*Don't Go Breakin My Heart (Jesse McCartney and Anne Hathaway) - Anne Hathaway has an amazing voice, I think she's a better singer than she is an actress. Add Jesse McCartney (who has an awesome voice as well) and a catchy song like "Dont Go Breakin My Heart" and you have a great intro to a CD.
*Once Upon a Broken Heart (The Beu Sisters) - The Beu Sisters are all very good vocalists. This song is really pretty (I love the piano music in the beginning) and it's cute. It totally fits the movie.
*Walkin' on Sunshine (Jump5) - There are a lot of remakes on this CD, and Walkin on Sunshine is probaby the best. It's upbeat and fun to sing along with.
*Somebody to Love (Anne Hathaway) - When she goes really high, Anne's voice isn't great. But when she gets into the smooth jazz-ish parts, she sounds awesome!!!

All the songs on the ELLA ENCHANTED SOUNDTRACK are great, but those are the four best. If you liked the movie, you should love the soundtrack.

Overall grade - A

5-0 out of 5 stars just a few things
