The movie version of Kander and Ebb's Chicago was long in the making but its well worth the wait. Director Rob Marshall's main change was to turn the classic musical numbers into fantasy sequences, but of course this isn't obvious on CD. Most importantly, the arrangements are bursting with life while being true to the show's spirit, and the casting is simply inspired.

Catherine Zeta Jones actually started her career on the British boards (she was in The Pajama Game and 42nd Street) so her turn as slinky Velma Kelly isn't that surprising; Renée Zellweger as Roxie Hart is more of a leftfield choice but she shows she can handle the singing demands with pizzazz. The real revelation may well be rapper Queen Latifah, who belts out "When You're Good to Mama" with a marvelous affinity for the material.

Okay, so the R&B reprise of "Cell Block Tango/He Had It Coming" by Queen Latifah, Macy Gray, and Lil' Kim fails to convince, while Anastacia's "Love is a Crime" is just bland (rest easy, purists, it's over the end credits). On the other hand, the CD provides two bonuses: "Class," which was cut from the movie, and "I Move On," a great duet written by Kander and Ebb for the final cut. It's really easy to mess up film adaptations of Broadway shows: happily, Chicago proves it can be done right. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

If you want my opinion in short, "Buy this CD, you won't regret it!"
Last month i saw 'Chicago' on stage and ever since then i have been eagerly waiting for the new film to come out. I left the theatre with the songs in my head and the film was no different. These infectious songs are so catchy and once you've heard them, you won't be able to stop yourself bursting into song.
'All that Jazz' and 'When you're good to Mama' are personal favourites but really there is not a bad song on this enchanting CD.
When 'Moulin Rouge' came out, everyone raved about the new musical. 'Chicago' beats that, and everything before it. Its fast, witty and powerful.
Catherine Zeta-Jones really shines, with an amazingly strong voice, she really makes you feel the lyrics that she is singing.
This is a flawless CD. Buy It! Now!

Despite my pre-conceived views of movie adaptations of stage shows being second rate, I was most surprised when I got to see Chicago, but what made the film so good was this stunning sound track!
The entire CD is packed with the movies favourite sounds (plus a few extra) and all the performers, who you'd normally expect to be reviewing for acting roles, give a superb vocal performance, each with their own distinct tone, adding a bit more 'edge' to the recording.
My favourite track has to be 4 - Cell Block Tango. Not only has it unforgettable lyrics, but the musical score together with the surprisingly good vocal talents of the actresses, doubles its appeal.
If you've never seen any version of Chicago (stage or screen), you'll hear this soundtrack as a little abstract, but if you've been lucky enough to experience Chicago, you'll definitely be much more appreciative of the tracks in every sense, and will seem much more of a must-buy sound track.

I decided to buy the soundtrack before watching the movie, and it was well wort it. All the songs are good in their own right, but there are some that really stand out to be amazing. All That Jazz is so unbelievably raw and sultry, and Catherine Zeta-Jones' voice is a real surprise! When you're good to Mama is another good one, and Queen Latifah's voice is very soulful. But the highlight of the soundtrack, and also the movie was definately the Cell Block Tango, and Gaby Roslin and Michael Greco also agreed. Each of the murderesses tell their tale in incredible ways, and the whole song is fantastic!!
I'll finish by saying stand up. Go to the nearest music shop. Buy this soundtrack. I'll sit here waiting. Go. Now.

I was given the soundtrack as part of a dance routine. I had not watched the film, but the tunes that stood out the most were "Cell Block Tango" with its catchy chorus, and "Overture/And All That Jazz", with the soulful singing from Catherine Zeta Jones. It compelled me to rent the film, and I was not disappointed - I ended up buying my own copy!Only low point in the soundtrack is possibly track 15, as it is a bit down compared to the rest of the fantastic, catchy, upbeat tunes (or downbeat tunes with "Mister. Cellophane" which had me nearly in tears the first time I heard it!) If you loved the film, or enjoy dancing, maybe for routines, then this is a soundtrack to add to your collection…I loved it!

If you were anything like my friend and I when we went to watch this at the cinema... you would have wanted to get up out of your seat and start dancing round like mad people! Well this album allows you to do just that... without the embarrassment!
When you start playing the album, from the first track it gives you all the sensations of watching the film instantly! You are whisked away to a seedy jazz nightclub with full on trumpets and piano's banging out the overture.. then "the" song... All that Jazz! Zeta-Jones stunned you visually in the movie.. but now you get to hear just how good she is! It's sexy, racey and just brilliant!
One of the best tracks on the album and in the film is Cell Block Tango! A song about 6 merry widows on death row who systematically recall their murderous exploits... all in the name of love! Pop... Six... Squish... Ah-ah... Cicero... Lipschitz! It was a show stopper in the movie and still grabs your attention even without the visual aspect. Truly excellent!
Mr Cellophane is brilliant... a partial tear-jerker, slightly melancholy... but ultimately beautiful! Razzle Dazzle is also excellent, with Richard Gere strutting his stuff! Still can't get over his tap dancing!!! Zellwegger is also great in Funny Honey! She starts off sultry and innocent, then you can really hear the anger in her voice start to well up as the loving husband turns on her! Queen Latifah is so Soulful and her rendition of When Your Good To Mama is outof this world! An amazing talent! A far cry from her days as a female rap artist!
The film was unbelievably brilliant from start to finish, and so is this soundtrack! No real disappointments! Dancers and choreographers... get this album... it's excellent for stage routines etc and you can have loads of fun prancing around to it!!
