4.0 out of 5 stars Magical March 19 2003
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album primarily for the theme/Christmas song "The Closing of the Year," which is a classic. The rest of the soundtrack is enjoyable as well; it doesn't rely totally on having watched the movie, although that is helpful. If you liked The Fifth Element soundtrack, this one is similar in a couple of areas, including a moving soprano solo and stirring instrumentals.

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD is all over the place May 22 2001
Format:Audio CD
First off, the movie is fantastic. It is funny, creative, and simply a guilty pleasure. It is one of the few movies I can watch over and over, but I suppose you have to have an off-beat sense of humor to think it's good. Now, for the CD, the songs on it are all over the place, and that's what makes it so good. I like every single song on it, although some more then others. The very first two songs are so beautifult they should be Christmas classics if more people knew about them. Ebudae and Alasatias lullaby are both interesting and beautiful. I don't like opera, but Alsatia's lullaby is amazing. The soaring orchestral performances (try track 11) are marvelous and great to listen to with the speakers on high. And of course, Happy Worker is simply a fantastic song and I enjoy every version of it on the soundtrack (listen for the last version after the last song, the lyrics are sung in a particularly interesting and fantastic way). Go buy this immediately, especially if you have an eclectic taste in music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A work of Art that cannot be expressed on paper Dec 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
The soundtrack from the movie "Toys" is Beautiful. It is mezmorizing, as is the movie. Both are amazing. Each track compliments the CD. Tori Amos and Enya are just some of the artists that contribute. "The Happy Woker" (Amos' song) is entrancing...I have fallen in love with it. Hans Zimmer has done tremendous work this time. One of my favorite tracks on the CD is "The mirror song" sung by Robin Williams and Joan Cusack in the movie...but on the soundtrack any sign of William's singing is distorted and the volume is lowered so we can barely understand him. That was disapointing. Other than that the Soundtrack is great. Just like the movie, it's filled with whimsey and wonder.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trevor Horn.... Hans Zimmer.....hmm May 8 2001
Format:Audio CD
First and foremost, lets get one thing clear. This is not just another wonderful Hans Zimmer soundtrack. His influence is present (especially in the rousing battle themes) but the majority of the work is that of the main man, the musical maestro, the God of music production himself... Mr Trevor Horn. Unbelievably, this is to date the only music score which Horn has arranged - and it is absolutely wonderful. Say what you like about the film - I think it's probably the 2nd most underrated film of all time after John Glen II's A View To A Kill - and the music is one of the main characters. Buy it, treasure it - you won't hear anything else like it.

4.0 out of 5 stars WOW! Nov. 13 2000
Format:Audio CD
For a crappy movie, this soundtrack is quite remarkable! I just saw the disapointing film and was mostly reading the new Stuff magazine I had just bought. But this soundtrack really stood out and made me look up a couple of times just for me to be let down by the stupid story and bad acting.
Most of the tracks have a very classic and epic touch to them. There are some new age-esque tracks that sound very similar to Vangelis! I think this soundtrack was wasted on the film. It should have been saved for something better.

From Amos' quirky "Happy Worker" to the powerful Grace Jones track (and what an astonishing diversity of artists is compiled here, too! ), this soundtrack is just about perfect.
It's the only holiday album I've heard that doesn't veer into "syrupy" territory, and the decision to include a reprise of "Closing of the Year," far from being a redundant waste of CD space, gives the listener a perfect sense of completeness when listening to this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Soundtracks EVER! Aug. 27 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is simply one of the best soundtracks ever. I like like almost all of the songs except Alsatia's Lullaby. The General gives the feeling of a half-crazed, glory-starved man with power, which is what he is. Battle Introduction gives you a good sense of preparing for the upcoming battle, which is greatly played out in the Battle Mix. Let Joy nad Innoncence Prevail is like the theme of the movie. Just buy this CD and you won't regret it.
