Worth The Years of Waiting!,
This review is from: Tangled (MP3 Download)
I have been eagerly awaiting the release of Tangled for a very long time, and followed it's production from it's early stages (back when it was originally titled Rapunzel Unbraided then Rapunzel, before getting it's last minute name change to Tangled!). I am a huge fan of Disney in particular their animated feature films for which the studio is famous for. When it was announced that Menken would be working on the music for the film I had very high expectations! Tangled (finally!) got it's UK release on January 28th 2011 two months after the majority of the world, and it was without a doubt worth waiting for! The many years of production on this film have paid off and I have no qualms saying that the Walt Disney Animation Studio is back on form after a string of underperforming releases throughout the 2000s. I purposely held off listening to the soundtrack before seeing the film, so it would be a surprise and what a soundtrack it is! This has been on repeat on my iPod since I purchased it, I'm in love with it! The score is tremendous full of emotion (it gives me goosebumps in parts!) and encompasses everything you would want from a Disney Score. Then there's the songs, I still cannot settle on which is my favorite as they're all brilliant. Mandy Moore, Donna Murphy and Zachary Levi are immensely talented individuals and this is the first time I've been exposed to any of their work. I can see the likes of "When Will My Life Begin" and "I See the Light" being as highly regarded as previous Disney Classics such as "Part of Your World", "Beauty and the Beast" and "Wish Upon A Star" in the near future. This is without a doubt a worthy purchase for any Disney fan, worth every penny!
