4.0 out of 5 stars A Warm and Fuzzy Blend,
A nicely blended soundtrack of old and new songs, guaranteed to evoke those wonderful warm and fuzzy feelings of Christmas past.
Alan Silvestri's original score perfectly compliments the traditional favorites by Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, and the Andrews Sisters. A fresh spritz of energy is provided by Steven Tyler in the rocking "Rockin' On Top of the World", toned down only by Josh Groban on the very next track.
To round it all off, Tom Hanks sings! Two songs! Actually he kinda mugs/raps/goofs around - but it adds that perfect funny note to the album. One note Tom - don't quit your day job.
Just listening to this album will trigger an urgent burning need to see the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll believe in Santa again,
I love this album and I love the film too. I am an adult and I haven't got children and I have no excuse to listen to this album so much; but every December this is the first thing I'll be listening to. Great lyrical songs and wonderful music. Christmas in a box.
It'll make you believe again :)

5.0 out of 5 stars I BELIEVE!,
As a young boy, I can remember my mother's efforts to ensure Christmas was always special for me, my sister and my brothers. Christmas was always full of wonderful smells from the pantry and kitchen and that innocent certainty that a rotund, red-cheeked Father Christmas would arrive at our home on his sleigh, early Christmas Morning, to the sound of jingly bells. It was pure MAGIC! And Father Christmas always left us the greatest Christmas presents! One Christmas, he even left me some of his magic 'Jingle Bells' - I still have them and they sound great!
Both the film and the Soundtrack embody the Wonder and Spirit of Christmas. For me, it takes me back to my childhood and all the innocent pleasures of having Christmas with one's family - even if they are no longer there. If you are looking for 'Christmas' this music and/or film is a must. The film is amazing on Blu-Ray.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Aboard!,
I am a huge fan of the animated movie, so I had to buy this beautiful book to read and lose myself in the magical artwork where the movie originated from.
The characters come to life all over again, it is beautifully written and as I said the illustrations are wonderfully depicted. It is a book to read when the winter nights draw to a close and brings Christmas closer. All ages will love the book and read it over and over.
5.0 out of 5 stars A great soundtrack to a great film,
covers all the songs from the film and also some classic Christmas songs too ! A must for all Polar Express fans !
