I especially loved the guitar and trumpet performance on track #7. Having seen the movie, I was pleasantly surprised to hear how good the score was.

If you liked the movie, then you know that the soundtrack was very good as well. I especially like the title song, and the Spanish treatment of a "Whiter Shade of Pale". I don't even speak Spanish and I enjoy this soundtrack.

Casa de Mi Padre is an intentionally silly spoof of those wonderfully cheesy but enormously popular Spanish-language telenovelas, especially ones from the 1970s which have a Grindhouse-esque quality. English-speaking audiences are generally unaware of their success and popularity, but they form a cornerstone of Latin popular entertainment, especially in countries like Mexico, Spain, Portugal, and most of South and Central America. The brainchild of actor/producer Will Ferrell, screenwriter Andrew Steele and director Matt Piedmont, the film stars Ferrell as Armando Alvarez, the good-natured but dim-witted son of a wealthy Mexican landowner (the late Pedro Armendáriz, Jr.), whose life is thrown into turmoil when his younger brother Raul (Diego Luna) returns to the family home with a beautiful new fiancée, Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez) to take over the business. However, Raul has fallen in with the wrong company, and soon Armando finds himself caught up in the middle of a bitter feud between Raul and the evil drug kingpin Onza (Gael Garcia Bernal). Yes, despite the rather serious plot, it is a comedy, and yes, it's entirely in Spanish, and the jokes come thick and fast, with intentionally bad continuity, poor special effects, and hilarious psychedelic inserts competing with the broad slapstick and clever wordplay Ferrell brings to the table.

The music for Casa de Mi Padre is by Andrew Feltenstein and John Nau, newcomers to the film music scene, but who clearly have a big future ahead of them if their work here is anything to go by.

Casa De Mi Padre is that trailer to that Will Ferrell movie that you probably will see someday on TBS a few years down the road. The Spanish soap opera spoof demands a score to go along for the ride and Andrew Feltenstein and John Nau answer the call. The composing duo haven't had many high profile gigs yet and have done direct to video stuff like Wild Things 2. The soundscape for Casa De Mi Padre is a decent one, and as a standalone listen presents itself as something different than what you're probably used to listening to.

The score plays it pretty straight while replicating a sort of Mexican groove type of sound. The cast contribute some comical songs to the album as do some other artists. So as a whole this does become a bit of a song album, but the score and songs work really well together. I can't really say anything bad about the music because the execution is pretty great. I can't say the score is anything fantastic either. It is what it is, and honestly you can't expect much from this Will Ferrell sleeper. The tunes play very well and as background music it works. Since there isn't much score here anyway it doesn't play out the story very in much depth. The comedy clearly comes from the fact that the music plays it straight, so on its own the music isn't "funny". In the end it's a so-so experience.

This score is neither good nor bad. It is what it is and has some pretty nice arrangements from the composing duo. While the material they're working with isn't anything spectacular they do make it work. I would recommend it as a listen just to hear some great new talent. If you loved scores like Austin Powers or Nacho Libre then you may get a kick out of Casa De Mi Padre since you can get the styles the music is referencing.
