Good, but if you want the tunes from the show, tough.,
This review is from: Moulin Rouge (Audio CD)
A good collection of tunes, but I certainly don't remember David Bowie or FBS appearing in Victorian top hat & tails in the film. There were some outstanding pieces of music from the film missing from this CD - "Like a Virgin", "Show Must Go On" and plenty of incidental tunes that could quite happily have fitted on the CD without getting 2 versions of "Lady Marmalade" & "Nature Boy". Call me Mr Cynical, but whenever I see the "Music inspired by..." sticker my heart sinks, because it's just another way of bilking the punters, who are going to shell out again in 6 months time when "Moulin Rouge... Part deux" is probably going to be released. Please, just give us the OST!
After all that, the songs are good and well produced, and there is enough of the film on it to keep you relatively happy.
