Product Description

Product Description

We Bought a Zoo, directed by Cameron Crowe and starring Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson and Thomas Haden Church, is a funny, inspiring and true story about the magical power of family to persevere in the face of extraordinary challenges. The soundtrack is by Sigur Rós front man and leading light, Jon Thor Birgisson, aka Jónsi. Sigur Rós have had a close relationship with WBAZ director Crowe who included their music on his 2001 film Vanilla Sky and it is clear that the music of Jónsi and Sigur Rós is not just an accompaniment to the action but greatly influenced the making and conception of the movie. Actors and crew alike were given copies of the Sigur Rós documentary Heima prior to filming and the music was played during takes to create the right energy for each scene.
The soundtrack includes more than half-an-hour of brand new music from Jónsi, including two full songs and nine achingly beautiful themes, plus reimagining’s of songs from Jónsi’s acclaimed solo album, Go, as well as what might well be regarded as Sigur Rós’ most memorable tune, in "Hoppipolla".

4.0 out of 5 stars Animal magic ! 25 Jan 2012
By Arthur Dooley VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Jonsi-the lead singer of Sigur Ros- composed the soundtrack for the as yet unreleased in the UK,Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson feel good movie 'We Bought a Zoo'. What lies within is pure Sigur Ros. A selection of ambient yet inspiring new tracks which include that old favourite-Hoppipolla. It's a really nice album which was recommended to me. I'm surprised that at the time of writing it appears to be off radar as far as UK Sigur Ros fans are concerned ?

Sweet !!!

How can Jonsi not move you?! This guy has more creativity in his little finger than the rest of the world combined. Fun, wistful, unique, full of love and life... I could go on. And CHECK OUT JONSI GO, RICEBOY SLEEPS AND EVERYTHING BY SIGUR ROS if you haven't already... you won't regret it.

Part soundtrack, part new songs, part a mild retrospective, this - the fourth Jonsi album in three years if you count the behemoth "GoLive" CD/DVD concert - this is a hidden gem in the body of work and so far, often overlooked. A handful of previously known songs "Hoppipolla", "Go Do", "Boy Lillikoi" are represented. On the other hand, the new material is largely stately, timely, epic in vision : on one hand, ideal for nature documentaries about frozen wastes, on the other, an inner monologue wherever you can explore inside your own mind. Without having seen the film, it is difficult to imagine where these mights it in a conventional film, but if music is aimed at evoking emotion, feeling, and complementing an image, then this creates it's own images inside my mind. There's around 36 minutes of new material here (and about 16 minutes of old stuff), utilising a palette rarely seen in film scores, of toy pianos, organic instruments, and a distinct lack of anything resembling a traditional, beat-lead score defined by the stab of horns and the thump of a generic rap/rock track. Shorn of the film, the album works splendidly as a companion to the previous Jonsi / Sigur Ros releases, akin to a structured, more cohesive sequel to "Riceboy Sleeps", or as perhaps a more exploratory branch from the song-based "Go". A record of no small stature, that demands attention and perhaps more than that, a record that you listen to : not just one you hear.

3.0 out of 5 stars Movie sountrack? 11 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Music is ok but mostly quiet tracks. When I saw the film I am sure there was more lively music too. Still makes nice listening to chill out too.

5.0 out of 5 stars This soundtrack is the Best! 11 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is my absolute favourite soundtrack of all time! The film is also brilliant; and when I need to relax or when I am studying, I listen to the beautiful songs of this CD and I feel the love perspiring from all my pores. This soundtrack makes me feel totally relaxed and in peace with the world.
