    Despicable Me 2

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   ~ Pharrell Williams
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   +180 RECORDS (2013, Jun 18th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger The soundtrack for the sequel to Universal's hit 2010 animated comedy Despicable Me follows a familiar script, once again utilizing the talents of multi-faceted pop handyman Pharrell Williams and composer Heitor Pereira (Spy Kids, Curious George, The Smurfs). More heavily weighted toward Pereira's appropriately mischievous score than the last time around, it's Williams' contributions that pack the most punch. The obvious single is the leadoff cut "Scream," which pits the inimitable CeeLo Green against an infectious, Motown-inspired shimmy that doesn't waste a single beat, but sunny, buoyant soul-pop confections like "Just a Cloud Away" and "Happy" hold their ...

    Divergent

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   ~ Various Artists
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Interscope Records (2014, Mar 11th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Heather Phares The soundtrack to Divergent, the first film adapted from Veronica Roth's dystopian young adult novel series, reflects the story's high-tech future -- in which people are separated into factions based on their virtues -- in its mix of EDM and hip-hop. Even if the EDM craze had peaked somewhat by the time of the film's 2014 release, it's a refreshing change from the brooding alt-rock that dominated the Twilight Saga soundtracks and, to a lesser extent, The Hunger Games' music. Befitting Divergent's theme of breaking the rules, the soundtrack's most daring moment is among the best. On "Backwards," Tame Impala and Kendrick Lamar turn their unlikely collaboration into a ...

    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger The 2011 Muppets reboot managed to re-establish the rainbow connection for millions of longtime fans, while simultaneously introducing a whole new generation to Jim Henson's beloved sketch-comedy puppets. 2014's Muppets Most Wanted finds the gang back on top and touring the world, only to become embroiled in an international crime caper that involves a chippy Russian prison guard played by Tina Fey, a tenacious Interpol agent played by Modern Family dad Ty Burrell, and a Kermit doppelganger/super-criminal and his slimy number two, the latter of whom is brought to life by Ricky Gervais. As one would expect, musical hijinks ensue, beginning with the likeable, ... See more details below Eligible for . more

    Pages:   

    All Music GuidePresenting a collection of his most intimate songs, Barry Manilow's Night Songs is his most stripped-back album to date. Featuring just Manilow playing bass, piano, and on vocals, it features smoky and classy renditions of classics such as "Alone Together" and "My One and Only Love.," All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger In 2011 Barry Manilow delivered his first set of original pop songs since 2001, and the resulting shape-shifting and ambitious 15 Minutes, a concept album about the pitfalls of fame that found the music legend crooning, swearing, and occasionally rapping over some of the riskiest (for Barry Manilow) work he had done in years, ...
