Much like music, cartoons are a universal medium that appeals to kids of all ages. With that concept in mind, Dreamworks has cobbled together a broad range of pop for the soundtrack to the computer-animated fairytale SHREK. Smashmouth checks in twice with the 1999 hit "All Star" and a dub-flavored cover of The Monkees' "I'm A Believer." Guilty pleasures abound, whether it's Leslie Carter (sister of Aaron and Backstreeter Nick) and her use of percolating beats and scratches on the cotton-candy "Like Wow!" or the Baha Men blowing away their potential one-hit wonder status with the infectious party chant "Best Years Of Our Lives." The scale also slides to the sophisticated side of the spectrum as evidenced by Rufus Wainwright's gorgeous rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" and E's quirky "My Beloved Monster." Other highlights include Halfcocked's pogo-worthy version of Joan Jett's "Bad Reputation" and The Proclaimers' jaunty late-'80s nugget "I'm On My Way." SHREK proves cartoons and music are two pleasures you never get too old to enjoy.
"I'm a Believer" is clearly the highlight of the soundtrack from this blockbuster release. It is easy listening and will see you imagine yourself in the movie with all of the characters. The tracks have been well chosen to compliment each other in order to depict the mood of each scene of the movie, with 'Hallelujah", bringing a certain element of sadness, not unfamiliar with the kids movie. A solid addition to any soundtrack lovers collection!
