Product Description

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

3.0 out of 5 stars A Tad Disappointing Feb. 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
Sure, "Moulin Rouge" was a good movie. I loved it. Still, the fact that the movie was good did nothing to help this soundtrack. There are only fifteen songs on the CD, half of which either don't appear in the movie at all or are heard in the background for a few seconds.
ALL of the songs that Harold Zeedler (I'm not sure how to spell it and I don't know what the actor's name is, but it's the owner of the Moulin Rouge) sings or plays a part in are not featured on the CD. This means that songs such as "The Pitch," "The Show Must Go On," or "Like a Virgin" are not featured, even though they all play an important part in the movie itself. (AAHHHH!!!)
Even with these cons, this album still would make an excellent addition to any Moulin Rouge freak's CD collection. Why? Well, let's just say that I've somehow fallen in love with "El Tango De Roxanne" and "Complainte De La Butte" (which is very sad, considering that "Complainte De La Butte" is almost entirely in French, and I don't speak a word of French!).
If you weren't too attached to any of Harold Zeedler's songs, then buy this album by all means. If you were, then sorry; you won't find them here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Dec 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best soundtracks I have ever come across, in terms of variety, innovation and general entertainment value.
The eponymous 'Lady Marmalade' aside, this is truly the most outstanding re-working of classic songs, and ranks alongside the 'Forbidden Broadway' series as one of the all-time greats. Particular highlights are David Bowie's 'Nature Boy', full of melancholy and heavy gothic emotion, which never once becomes overstated or cloying, 'Complainte de la Butte' by Rufus Wainwright, a touching and beautiful lovesong sung in french and english, and Beck's rendition of the classic 'Diamond Dogs'.
The surprise here is Ms. Kidman's voice - although technically not the best singer in the world, she manages to pull off her showstopping 'Sparkling Diamonds' with as much charisma and gusto as she does 'One Day I'll Fly Away' - a version, which in my opinion, suits the lyrics and tone of the song better than Randy Crawford's original.
Although not all of the better pieces of music from the movie are on this CD, it's worth owning for the sheer quality of production. People who haven't seen the movie will still be impressed by how different and refreshing this CD is.

5.0 out of 5 stars In love at The Moulin Rouge July 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
Being a total Romantic, I fell in love with the movie the first time I saw the previews. I did not get to see it until just recently, tho, but once I did, I was over the top. I am beginning a collection of movie and music items, as well as bookmarking sites wherever I can find them. I have totally fallen in love with this soundtrack. My only disappointment is that none of the versions contain all the music from the movie. I do prefer Volume 1 to Volume 2. This version seems to be easier to listen to. Volume 2 has a brash sound to it. The fact that the songs were for the most part previously recorded music was an added attraction for me. I love to sing along with Satine, Christian, and the rest of the characters, enjoying both the story line and the artists who make it come alive. To listen to this CD is to relive the movie. I see the expressions on the faces of the different characters as they sing, and I am right there with them, sharing their sorrows and their joys as they move thru this brief moment in time.

By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The first Moulin Rouge soundtrack cannot really be considered or described out of context with the later second volume that was released. The deficiencies of this album are addressed for the most part in Volume 2, and thus this album cannot be judged as harshly as it was upon its initial release for the songs and numbers that are not included. The earliest reviews of this soundtrack are justifiably critical, for many of the tracks featured here are not the actual versions from the film. In essence, this CD is music that inspired and was inspired by the movie rather than an actual soundtrack. This becomes obvious from the very start, when one hears David Bowie delivering the melancholy masterpiece Nature Boy. David Bowie does a great job but it's not the movie version, and that is important because fans obsessed with this movie (including yours truly) are absolutely captivated if not in love with the actual movie versions. If Bowie singing Nature Boy feels strange, just wait until you hear Beck singing Bowie's Diamond Dogs later on.
Thus, one has to put aside one's concerns about this album's vast differences from the actual movie's music, knowing that some (but, sadly, not all) of those original film versions can be found on the Moulin Rouge Volume 2 soundtrack. Since I love the movie and music, so much, I'll say a word about every track on this CD. After Nature Boy, one gets the familiar pop hit version of Lady Marmalade performed by Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mya, and Pink. The one great weakness of both soundtracks is the fact that this is basically the only piece of music you get from the unforgettable sequence in which Ewan McGregor first enters the Moulin Rouge. Fatboy Slim gives us his driving version of Because We Can, a furiously upbeat track.
