The newest Disney game for the Wii is an extremely bold and entertaining approach to one of the most cherished animated characters of all time. Epic Mickey follows Mickey Mouse as he gets sucked into a dark depressing world called Wasteland. Wasteland is inhabited by the forgotten characters of the Disney universe. Mickey must now use his magic paintbrush to bring new light into the dark world. The concept is indeed epic for the character and the game itself is incredibly story driven while still being a platformer. James Dooley was responsible for the music in the game and has created an incredibly unique world through the music.

Excuse me for the lame comparison but Dooley paints the world through the music just as the player paints the world with Mickey's paintbrush. I think what surprised me the most right off the bat with the score was the way it was structured. While most game scores have a looping quality to the tracks I didn't really get the feel with the longer tracks here. Sure some of them feel like they could loop and loop because they were designed to in-game. The score works almost the same as you would hear it for a progressing narrative. The themes and variations are fantastic. Even though this is a synth based score it still has a large heartwarming feel.

What's impressive is that Dooley was able to maintain his unique style and voice and still incorporate certain aspects that felt "Disney". The game's production design is stunning and some levels incorporate classic Disney cartoon stylings and of course the music had to reflect that. Dooley will bring the ragtime piano now and then to accent those parts. While some of the shorter tracks are short bursts of whimsical tunes they still function as accents to certain characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing writing music! Great soundtrack! February 7, 2013
By Lee
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I get annoyed easily by those soundtracks where it is just a bunch a mood clips pieced together. You know the screeching violins, with weird noises and you only get maybe one great orchestral work.
Rest assured you will not find that with this soundtrack. If you have played the game you will recognize the amazing melodies, but even if you have never played the game, this music is so worth it. The album includes fun and also dramatic scores that shine with memorable melodies. I have written novels to this and whenever I play it people are always asking me what it is.
So if you are looking for that great soundtrack to sweep you up and keep you creative and inspired. This is it!

4.0 out of 5 stars New twists on Disney music May 26, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The whole concept behind Epic Mickey was to twist what we know about Disney and give it a new edge. The music tries to follow on that vein. The best tracks in the album take cheerful classics like "It's a Small World" and make them scary. Unfortunately, the soundtrack doesn't take full advantage of this potential. Overall, it's a great video game soundtrack and I'm glad it saw an official release, but there's more room in the next Epic Mickey game for taking and twisting Disney classics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it, but... March 1, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
... I wish I could get it on an official CD. It'd look great on the shelf with my Disney soundtrack collection.
The dark variations of well-known tunes are nice. I especially like Dark Beauty Castle.
