First of all, you should know that this isn't a CD with a lot of singing. If you watched the movie, you'd probably catch onto that because only three songs are sung, and they are all on the CD. The rest is Randy Newman's awesome fantasy world. Track #14 is so perfect....it honestly takes you to another place with its catchy tune which is just as cute and mysterious as "The Cleaner" himself. Track #18 begins with the exciting Woody-the-hero melody blaring in the brass with a bold cowboy sound. It sounds almost like Aaron Copland at times, but with a little toy-flare to it.
This CD seriously just makes you smile! The Sarah McLachlan song in the beginning is probably the saddest song on the CD, but it is absolutely charming and sweet. If you like any of Randy Newman's instrumental music ("Maverick" and "A Bug's Life"), you won't be disappointed by this CD. However, if you somehow thought that Woody and company sang songs throughout the movie, you probably won't like it. For the rest of you, it's incredible! :)
