Format: Audio CD
A silly-but-fun animated action/comedy set in a world of super-heroes and super-villains, Megamind features the voice talent of Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Tina Fey and Jonah Hill. After their respective planets are destroyed Superman-style, two alien babies - one who looks human, one with a giant blue head and superior intellect - crash land on Earth. The human-looking baby grows up to be Metro Man, the savior of the fictional Metro City, while the other grows up to be Megamind, his arch enemy and super-villain. After kidnapping beautiful reporter Roxanne, Megamind hatches a typically hare-brained scheme to kill Metro Man but - as much to his own surprise as anyone else's - actually succeeds in apparently dispatching is nemesis. However, rather than being happy with his triumph, Megamind quickly becomes depressed with having no-one to fight, and concocts a new scheme: to genetically alter Roxanne's hapless cameraman Hal, turning him into a new hero...

As is the case with all Dreamworks animations, the music for Megamind a product of Hans Zimmer's Remote Control stable. Despite Zimmer's name appearing first in the credits, the lead composer here is 34-year old Scottish-born Lorne Balfe, who has worked as an orchestrator, additional composer and synth programmer on dozens of scores for Zimmer, Steve Jablonsky, Ramin Djawadi and others since 2005, but who is making his debut as the main man here. I had never been really that impressed with Balfe's contributions to Zimmer's scores before, but his work on Megamind indicates that I may have seriously underestimated his talents.

The score opens with "Giant Blue Head", an unexpectedly lullaby-like theme for soft chimes and xylophones which gradually grows to incorporate the full orchestra, an upbeat percussion section, and even a choir.

Score updated to 2 stars . . . original review first, read edit next.

Graded on it's own, I'm sure this has SOME merit, but let's face it, if you saw Megamind, and you wanted a Sountrack, you expected AC/DC, Ozzy and MJ at very least . . . alas, the songs that were found in the movie were just too high-end for them to be able to come through with an adequate compilation.

The basics what you're looking for:
AC/DC: Highway to Hell (note, they turn the song off before it actually says Hell) -- From the "Highway to Hell" album --- if you're not a fan, buy the single.
AC/DC: Back in Black (from Back in Black) I'd recommend picking up this album Back in Black if you're at all interested. Several hits -- good album.
Guns 'n Roses: Welcome to the Jungle - first available on Appetite for Destruction, you can also get it on Greatest Hits which if you don't like 8 or more tracks, then just buy this 'soundtrack'
Ozzy Osbourne: Crazy Train - (buy this as an OLD used CD or the MP3) --- one of Ozzy's best, definitely best on Blizzard of Ozz, which has it's own problems.
Michael Jackson: Bad -- do what you want here -- Bad (Spec) is cheap enough with enough hits to make up for the cash you're dropping, but MJ might not be your thing.

-------------------
I've decided to revisit this review in fairness to the album.

I enjoy soundtracks for the background music they provide when I am working on my computer, etc. The score is light & fun just like the movie. Great movie. Great soundtrack.

I truly cannot add anything that hasn't already been said, except to say that this CD is a good start. It does not hold all of the songs which made this movie so spectacular -- not even all of the instrumental soundtrack. However, what is there is stunning. Zimmer et. al. have created a soundtrack that orchestrates the movie so completely that you don't even need to watch it. When listening to this soundtrack you can see the movie played out in your head. Look online for the end credits (which really should have been included, but were not) and most of the various rock songs that make this story so iconic. It was a good start for my Complete Megamind Soundtrack that I had to assemble. But you have to start somewhere.

I love this movie it is so funny and the music is wonderful in and so that is why I bought the soundtrack because there are some cuts that I really like and they are all on one CD and I still love CDs I do not trust servers hanging onto my MP3 files I still like hard storage.

By not including Crazy Train (Ozzy), Highway to Hell (AC/DC), Back in Black (AC/DC), Welcome to the Jungle (Guns and Roses) and even Bad (Michael Jackson) makes this a poor soundtrack that three/four good/fair songs can't fix.

Megamind is missing his goatee on the cover, like with the DVDs.
Yes, unfortunately only a few of the fantastic rock songs used in the movie are in the album, but I already own all the albums those songs are on, as does anyone with any sense.
Not all Zimmer's compositions for the film are in this album, but it is satisfying as far as most movie soundtracks go.
The music for the movie has a lotta heart, and a lotta backbone, and is one of my favorites. This product gets 5 from me because of that, and because I got what I was promised.
