5.0 out of 5 stars
If you want to keep the impression of the movie!, May 5 2003
Comparing with Moulin Rouse, Chicago is more powerful and fantastic. If you want to keep the impression you get when you see this movie, I strongly recommend this CD, Chicago.
Originally being a musical, this album Chicago is as vivid as a musical sound track. Thinking of disappointment that I feel when I listen to Moulin Rouse because of its weak vocals, Chicago is very impressive. Catherine Zeta Jones, Renee Zellweger and Richard Gere's singings are so admirable.
This album contains all the music you can hear in the movie, which makes you feel like watching it. Moreover, there are some other songs that you cannot hear when you see the movie: track # 17 performed by Queen Latifah and Lil¡¯kim and # 18 performed by Anastacia. These two tracks are somewhat inharmonious considering all the other songs based on jazz, but they¡¯re somewhat unique. For my part, my favorites are track #6 We Both Reached For the Gun and #14 Catherine Zeta-Jones and Renee Zellweger:I move on. These are both reminding of the movie Chicago and especially track # 14's words are really moving, with Jazz sound.
If you are someone who enjoys listening Jazz, this CD will be the best choice you can have. Not only are melodies great but also are their words so touching.
