After a two-year gap, Bryan Adams chose the animated movie Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron to make his triumphant return. The soundtrack is by no means a solo effort, but he has cowritten and sings on eight brand-new songs. Two of them are deemed so good they appear twice. The first of these, "Here I Am", is an uplifting tune that plays as the film's end credits. The other is the film's finale, "I Will Always Return", which seems like a statement on the artists' career. Of the others, the most interesting is the duet with Sarah McLachlan on "Don't Let Go", lending it a particularly atmospheric air with their combined breathy vocal stylings. This being a story of a mystical heroic horse, the lyrics are consistently upbeat and optimistic. Behind those lyrics is a collection of composers providing the melodies. Leading the team is Hans Zimmer, who's now an old hand at the animated genre (cf The Lion King and The Prince of Egypt). Towards the end of the album are four cues totalling 20 minutes of his instrumental score. These are perfectly in keeping with both the songs and Zimmer's style, featuring big orchestral themes overlaid with electronic augmentation. All together it's an hour of exactly what both artists do best. --Paul Tonks

When I saw the movie, I noticed Bryan Adams' music right away. I didn't realize how perfectly matched the soundtrack was for the movie until I bought the CD and listened to it, then watched the movie again. It's wonderful! You almost can't help but to sing along, and Adams' vocal performance is particularly poignant. Since the movie is largely about non-speaking characters, the music is particularly good at conveying the feeling behind certain scenes such as when Spirit is in the train car and imagines he sees his herd in the snowflakes. You'll listen to this cd over and over.

While I must give in and confess that it's a movie made for everybody, what really made the flick standout above the rest was how the story was told - through music. Music is a powerful weapon and can add greater emotion to any scene of any movie. If done right, the movie will become an even greater experience after it reaches the climax. Luckily, a good friend of mine had a copy, to which I borrowed for a few days and listened. I came out of the listening sessions with an aching desire to check out more works of Bryan Adams. Bryan Adams, along with Award-Winning composer Hans Zimmer, collaborated to bring the movie to life through music.
But before I even speak of the music and how beautiful it can be for the ears, I'll explain the story behind Spirit - Stallion Of The Cimarron. The movie is an animated flick and tells the story of a Kiger mustang named Spirit, who runs wild and free on the Cimarron (New Mexico) wilderness with his family and is determined to make sure they are kept away from enslavement. Unfortunately, a group of soldiers discover and capture Spirit, thus forcing Spirit to be away from his family, as the proud horse is taken to a U.S. Calvary fort, where they attempt to master the proud horse. Sick of seeing his kind being treated in a bad fashion, Spirit escapes the fort with a new goal in mind - to return home and be reunited with his family. Along the way, he encounters new friends and old enemies, not to mention falling for a beautiful paint mare named Rain.
Whereas most stories that you see in movies are told through dialogue, the movie's plot is told through a different standpoint - narration. Matt Damon was hired to convey Spirit's thoughts to the audience.

I love the movie "SPIRIT" and of course, I love my Spirit soundtrack! You can really understand the horses in the movie, even if they don't speak! That's what makes the music so special. It seems perfect for what a wild stallion would feel. All of the songs express different emotions, in some way, and sometimes you can just picture wild mares, colts, foals, and stallions running free. The soundtrack and the movie are tied in quality. In the movie, it's from the horses' point of view. It's as if it's saying, " how would YOU like it if that happened to you?" The soundtrack is so real that you can almost HEAR horses' hooves clopping on the ground, and horses' breathing! The music, ( by HANS ZIMMER,) really go along with the words, ( by BRYAN ADAMS.) Both of their tunes have the feeling of wild horses. It is great to hear it! I listen to my soundtrack... almost every day! My opinion is that if you get this, you should get the HOME ON THE RANGE soundtrack, where cows are on an adventure themselves' in the wild west. The songs are great in both of these. They're even better if they go together!

ONE: I Will Always Return (Credits)
This one was quite likable. It starts abruptly, with quiet instruments backing up Bryan Adam's whimsical-type voice, which automatically makes you want to like it. The words are quite good, albeit, slightly unoriginal at parts; "now I know it's true, my every road leads to you" which have certainly been used before. But the tempo is good and the tune original. In the end, it's just rowdy enough to interest, and makes for a fine start to the soundtrack.
TWO: Here I Am (Beginning)
This is a great second track, mostly because it's a little more soothing than the first one. The music is toned-down somewhat, with a echoing quality as well. The words are both original and well-done. I liked it especially because it seems to ring the feel of a newborn horse, which is the scene it's played for in the movie. Charming!
THREE: This is Where I Belong
I actually liked this track better than ONE, though I'm not sure why, considering a lot of the words are the same. I liked the tone more, I think. ONE is rather chop-full of rowdy music, whereas this track seems beautifully sincere; more the majestic of horses it was meant to be. Between the excellent lyrics and piano solo, it's an easy favorite.
FOUR: You Can't Take Me
It's exciting. With the sudden build-up of the music after some brief drum-beating, you're automatically wanting to like it. The chorus is stimulating with fast lyrics that make you want to tip back and lip-sync. Good words too, considering they seem rather 'obstinate'. Very cool, this one.
FIVE: Get Off My Back
This one is more fun than anything else. I guess it's mostly because the corresponding scene in the movie was so hilarious.
