Cars Soundtrack (Collector's Edition)

With a track listing that's roughly half rock, country, and pop songs and half Randy Newman's score, the Cars soundtrack is probably the least inspired collection of music to support a Pixar film. However, that's only in comparison to the brilliant soundtracks to their other movies -- especially Finding Nemo and The Incredibles. Both the pop music and score for Cars fit the film perfectly, and neither is totally predictable. Indeed, the biggest surprise may be the soundtrack's opening salvo, Sheryl Crow's "Real Gone." With a stomping beat and driving (no pun intended) riff that echoes the Who's "I'm Free," this is the most fun her music has been in years. As good as she is at the thoughtful, mellow ballads that made up Wildflower, she's truly incandescent as a smart but happy-go-lucky rock chick. There's also a '50s undercurrent to the soundtrack, nodding to the fact that many of the characters in the film are cars designed during that decade, including a 1959 Impala and a 1959 Fiat 500. The Chords' "Sh-Boom" and Chuck Berry's "Route 66" add a sweetly nostalgic feel to the album (later on, John Mayer contributes a blandly slick version of "Route 66" that could appear on virtually any soundtrack). The soundtrack also ties in the film's NASCAR motif with country songs like Rascal Flatts' version of "Life Is a Highway," which sounds like a slightly twangier take on Tom Cochrane's smash hit, and Brad Paisley's "Behind the Clouds," a sweet, affable, traditional country song that is one of Cars' highlights. Newman's score, meanwhile, follows in the tradition of his Toy Story and A Bug's Life work, translating his witty musical style into orchestral pieces that are rooted in traditional film music but never sound stuffy. "Opening Race" alternates between brass fanfares and revved-up guitar riffs, while the thrilling strings on "McQueen's Lost" and "Dirt Is Different" suggest curving roads and wide-open landscapes. And as always, the whimsical love theme "McQueen and Sally" and self-explanatory "Goodbye" show that Newman is still capable of being sentimental without being schmaltzy. Even though a soundtrack that consisted entirely of Newman's pieces and songs would be more in keeping with Pixar tradition, Cars does a good job of balancing its pop and score elements. ~ Heather Phares, All Music Guide

We enjoy all the music very much even though half the sound track is orchestral scores as opposed to rock. We played most of the sound track at my 3 year olds birthday party and people commented positively. I like to copy CDs for personal use in the car as CDs in the car get mystery scratches and don't work after a while. Either Disney programs this one so or because it's a "digi-something"...we couldn't copy it at all. If you are set up to down load music legally (which Walmart offers) and have small children...I'd make your own copy so you can do with it as you need...note some songs are not individually copyrighted anywhere, so from any downloading music source, you must purchase and download the entire album to get certain songs. We will probably never take it out of the family room to prevent damage while our kids are very small, therefore we don't enjoy it as much as we'd like to.

My son loves the movie, and this just makes the car ride to daycare fun. It's also fun to hear the music when you are driving because it feels like you are "Lightning McQueen". The songs are a lot of fun to sing along with.

My three year old is a "Cars" expert! He loves Cars and when I turn on the music he starts dancing and singing! Great soundtrack! I turn it on just so I can listen to it too!

My 3 year old boy loves this movie so it was a no brainer to purchase this for him. He loves to put it in his little kids cd player and listen to it.

My kids love this CD! They are big fans of the movie CARS and this is the perfect alternative to watching the movie all the time! The songs are fun and remind them of their favorite parts in the movie! It was difficult for us to find it in stores, so Wal-Mart made it easy and the shipping was minimal! I recommend this CD AND buying it through Wal-Mart!
