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.
