A soundtrack as good as any Disney movie has had June 13 2002
By woburnmusicfan - Published on
Format: Audio CD
"Muppet Treasure Island" is the most satisfying Muppet movie to date, and a big reason for it is the music. Composer Barry Mann and lyricist Cynthia Weil have written a half-dozen songs that compare admirably to any of the great Disney movies. The big show-stopper is "Cabin Fever", an uproariously silly number about the crew going stir crazy when the ship is trapped in the doldrums. But my favorite songs are three nautical numbers that remind me of the Kline-Ronstadt version of "Pirates of Penzance". "Shiver My Timbers" provides an ominous exposition of how the treasure was originally hidden, "Sailing for Adventure" is a rousing start to the sea voyage ("With our hearts unbound and our flag unfurled/We're under way and off to see the world"), and Tim Curry as Long John Silver extols the advantages of being "A Professional Pirate". Inevitably, there's also a big smarmy "Can You Feel the Love Tonight/A Whole New World"-type ballad, "Love Led Us Here" -- I prefer the Kermit-Miss Piggy rendition to the lush version by John Berry and Helen Darling (maybe YOU'VE heard of them). A big chunk of the album is orchestral music that played in the background of various scenes. The album starts with a brief but rousing opening theme, goes into the songs, followed by the soundtrack music, and ends with a catchy Ziggy Marley closing song and the Berry-Darling duet. This pacing makes listening to the whole CD at once less than the sum of its parts, as the transitions are too abrupt.

The Best Ever Aug. 10 2002
By Idatecreeps - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Even though Muppet Treasure Island has been said not to be a true Muppet movie, it's awesome. Who ever said that needs to get their head exaimed! I can't stop listenig to the soundtrack. My favorite song on there is "Something Better" but "A professional pirate" ranks a close second. I recommend this to people of all ages. Get it while you can because(from what i've heard so far)Jim Henson productions won't be releasing anymore soundtracks again.

Muppets do Sailor Music and it's grand! Sept. 2 2001

This album is one of my son's favorites. They love it for the sea bearing fun songs and excellent music. The opening song is one of the best opening songs from a movie I myself have heard. IF you like the quality of the first muppet movie music, you will love this one too!

Aye, it rates up there with 'Raiders' and ' Star wars' April 27 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I find the music very exhilarating, in the opening number, you can visualize the pirates laboring to drag the pirate chests across the sand and it's final resting place. The first few songs tell the story of a young man who is in search of his past and his future. Adventure is the goal, and he finds it, with the music following his ups and downs. Even Miss Piggy gets to sing a love song, which isn't bad for a pig. I feel the music helped tell the tale of this wonderful story, and it's not often, a frog, a pig, a rat and a what ever ( The Great Gonzo) gets to sing. This is the kind of music that will brighten your day, if your blue. From a true " Pie-Rat "

A work of art! June 10 1999

This soundtrack is truly awesome! Right from the beginning title, it sets the mood for the movie! Hans Zimmer came up with really clever themes that tell the story beautifully! Not only is the classical music great, but the songs are great as well! The songs illustrate the struggles of a little boy yearning for "Something Better"! And Tim Curry's songs are really awesome! This soundtrack is for everyone who is young at heart! Enjoy!
