5.0 out of 5 stars My kids love this!, 5 April 2009
This review is from: Wall - E OST (Audio CD)
Bought this for my 3 year-old's birthday. He's likes anything to do with Wall-e, but also likes any kind of music too, so we thought we'd try this out! We're really pleased. Both our children (5 and 3) enjoy listening to it (we do too) and talking about which bits of the film the music would go with. It's fun watching their expressions of anticipation as some of the bits of music come on that are building up the tension in the film, it seems to grip them even more than the actual film! It's got them thinking about how with some music, different instruments "represent" different things, but it's not quite as abstract as some classical music as all the different sounds and bits of the tunes (I'm sure there's a technical word for that) match really well at helping you imagine what's going on. This has probably been helped by the fact that (a) Thomas Newman is fantastic at this kind of stuff and (b) the film itself has very little dialogue and so the music was given much more significance than in a lot of films. Having said all that, this CD isn't specifically a kid's CD, anyone who enjoys film soundtracks or orchestral music will enjoy it. You don't even need to have seen the film to appreciate it, I would say it stands up great on it's own just as great music. Listen to this in the morning, you'll be bouncing along to some of the ditties all day!
