Product Description

Amazon.ca

Nicole Kidman playing a singing prostitute? Ewan McGregor channelling the Police? If the soundtrack to director Baz Luhrmann's freakish musical Moulin Rouge has its way, we'll all be wearing corsets and swinging from the ceiling while the former Mrs Tom Cruise becomes our favourite new pop sensation. As daring as Luhrmann himself, the compositions test Kidman--who could have easily used a league of backup singers and studio knob-twiddlers to hide her inexperience--and she actually passes. She's no Olivia Newton-John, but she capably mixes Madonna's "Material Girl" with "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" (which is as breathy as Marilyn would've wanted it to be) and goes full throttle on any medley thrown her way. Her cover of "One Day I'll Fly Away" is especially poignant given her much-publicised personal tragedies. McGregor, though, is a real star; his giggly schoolboy brogue morphs into a fun cradle for Paul McCartney's Wings as well as U2's Bono on "Elephant Love Medley." Beck's cover of David Bowie's "Diamond Dogs" is a hit waiting to happen, while Pattie LaBelle's 1970s staple "Lady Marmalade" (remade by an all-star cast of divas, Lil' Kim and Christina Aguilera among them) already is. A delicious, racy soundtrack that is equal parts cabaret, glam rock and trip-hop, Moulin Rouge doesn't disappoint. --Kristy Martin

5.0 out of 5 stars Ranks up there with the great movie soundtracks May 26 2002
Format:Audio CD
I found the film "Moulin Rouge!" to be uneven, but ultimately very compelling and enjoyable. One of the best things about the film was its unbelievably diverse and daring musical soundtrack. The soundtrack CD, while incomplete, is superb. It's filled with excitement, palpable emotion, and great vocal and instrumental performances.
David Bowie opens the show on a somber note with "Nature Boy." This leads into the outrageous urban funkiness of "Lady Marmalade," performed with irresistible zest by the multicultural diva quartet of Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mya, and Pink. Also fun is Fatboy Slim's hyperactive "Because We Can." Other great selections include the tender, world-weary voice of Rufus Wainwright on the melancholy "Complainte de la Butte," and the freaky, beautiful "Hindi Sad Diamonds" (featuring Alka Yagnik).
But like the film, the CD really depends on the two leads: Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman. They are outstanding. Kidman is fierce and sexy on "Sparkling Diamonds," romantic and authoritative on "One Day I'll Fly Away." McGregor is especially impressive on "Your Song" (featuring Alessandro Safina). Who would have thought that Obi-Wan Kenobi had such a fantastic singing voice? As excellent as Kidman is, I really think it is McGregor who gives both film and soundtrack their heart and soul.
When Kidman and McGregor come together on the "Elephant Love Medley," the most potent magic of the whole CD really becomes evident. This medley of segments from a diverse bunch of songs ("All You Need Is Love," "Don't Leave Me This Way," "Silly Love Songs," "I Will Always Love You," etc., etc.), combined with dialogue, showcases the chemistry these two performers shared. The "Medley" is ultimately a soaring, triumphant, even inspirational tour de force of arrangement and performance.
Yes, I loved the "Moulin Rouge!" soundtrack. I rank it right up there with such classic song soundtracks as "Purple Rain" and "Saturday Night Fever."

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE IT!! June 25 2001
By Billie
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack rocks! It's all I listen to now! The sounds were awesome in the movie, so of course the soundtrack would be wonderful to listen to, also. I can't even listen to "Come What May" because I'll start crying, but I love all the others. They're either extremely pretty to listen to (like Roxanne) or else upbeat (like Lady Marmalade) or even fun (like Sparkling Diamonds.)!
They left out "Spectacular Spectacular," "Like a Virgin," and "Zidler's Rap." While Zidler's Rap was cool, and I wish it would be on the soundtrack, the other two were kind of...I don't know the word. But, while they were an enjoyable part of the movie, they weren't exactly ones I'd pop into my car stereo and listen to. Needless to say, I certainly don't mind the fact that they were left out, and unless you're an extremely die-hard music fan you won't either.
All in all, it's an excellent soundtrack from a great film. I love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Truly Intriguing Soundtrack May 8 2001
Format:Audio CD
Listening to the soundtrack to the upcoming film "Moulin Rouge," you almost anticipate the thing to fall flat on its face. It is such a HUGE commerical and artistic risk: untrained singers Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor headlining a period musical whose songs are mostly comprised of 70s and 80s hits. However, the risk pays off tremendously. Safer bets are the modern tracks by Beck, Fatboy Slim, and Christina Aguilera (et al), whose "Lady Marmelade" is a fun and energetic remake. The songs from the film stand well on their own as Kidman and (especially) McGregor stun the listener with their surprising range and vocal power. Disappointments are few but include a rocky start to a tango-influenced "Roxanne" remake and an odd, but ultimately winning, entry by Rufus Wainwright. Still, this is one of those CDs that pays off upon multiple plays when the tapestry of soaring music and snippits of modern lyrics blend into the subconcious. This CD isn't for all listeners as "Lady Marmelade" would have you believe, as I'm sure the movie will be. However, true lovers of musicals will not be disappointed by the substantial artistic talent on display in this memorable CD.
