Where do i start? Some of the tracks you will recognise yes, as they are existing covers, but most of the material is new and unheard. No 2 tracks are the same on this extremely varied album, and all tastes are most definitely catered for. No matter where your musical tatse lies, there really is something for everyone.

Personally, the album should be commended for Tom Hodge's orchestral version of Daft Punk's hugely successful 'Aerodynamic' (finds fame in the Pantene Advert with Mylene Klaas) which i hope you will agree is an amazing song. Notable tracks also include reinventions of the iconic 'Billie Jean', 'Ain't Nobody' and a COMPLETELY outstanding take on the club-classic… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't It Be Nice??, 28 Aug 2006
Wouldn't it be nice if the soundtrack included two of the most important, and indeed prominent, songs featured in this beautiful film. "Wouldn't it be Nice" by the Beach Boys is charming, sweet and played repeatedly throughout the film, yet it isnt on the soundtrack. Also, the final song (a delightful mix of "What a Wonderful World" and "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" in a simple acoustic style) isnt to be seen on the soundtrack. Don't get me wrong, the soundtrack is brilliant without them, but i believe that it would be simply magical with them. So... 3 stars :-) Enjoy.

Having played the Japanese version of this game i can truly say that this is phenomenal. Building on the first games' complex narrative you continue your story with Sora, Donald & Goofy. Except this time you start the game as someone else.... I wont spoil the details but the first few hours of gameplay are extremely revealing.
Square Enix have now announced that the game will be released in the US on 28th March, meaning here in the UK should only be 2 or 3 months behind.
This game really shouldnt be missed, with its exceptional graphics, a gameplay full of enigmas and a musical score fit for a king... King Mickey perhaps??!!! ~wink wink~
