This family event movie that stars LEGO figures (including LEGO Batman) opens wide in theaters on Feb 7. An ordinary LEGO minifigure, mistakenly thought to be the extraordinary MasterBuilder, is recruited to join a quest to stop an evil LEGO tyrant from gluing the universe together. The movie stars Will Ferrell, Channing Tatum, Liam Neeson, Elizabeth Banks, Morgan Freeman, Will Arnett, Charlie Day. The movie as well as the movie's marketing campaign features the song, Everything Is AWESOME!!! by Tegan and Sara featuring The Lonely Island. That song + score composed by Mark Mothersbaugh (Devo, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, Rugrats, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked) is featured on the Soundtrack.

And what better way to promote it than with a unique soundtrack?
I have been a fan of LEGO since the first BIONICLE sets, and, even though I'm almost 20 years old, it's still an everyday hobby. Why should kids have all the fun?
Anyway, the soundtrack is unique on its own: the song "Everything is Awesome" is performed by Tegan and Sara and features adult comedy rap group The Lonely Island (check out SNL's "YOLO" with Adam Lavign). The song is funny, especially when TLI sings about "awesome things", and has that techno vibe that is ever-present in the soundtrack.
Then the score starts up, created by Mark Mothersbaugh, which blends classical tunes with electronic beats to create something modern, and not like what you heard in 80's movies like Indiana Jones. Even the music samples that were released before the album have some modern, unlikely, but cool, beats.
The score is closely followed by two versions of the "Everything is Awesome" song, one by Jo Li, and an unplugged one by Shawn Patterson. Then, Will Arnett, the voice of Batman in the movie (BATMAN!) has his own skit on the soundtrack titled "Untitled Self Portrait", which has more talking than the "Batman" sequence in the middle, and uses a rough, heavy metal-like voice. Finally, the instrumental version of "Everything is Awesome" ends the soundtrack with an upbeat mood.
In conclusion: the soundtrack is well-produced, well-orchestrated, and well-sung in places.
The LEGO Movie: rated PG for mild action and rude humor.
