Editorial Reviews

Nicole Kidman playing a singing prostitute? Ewan McGregor channeling the Police? If the soundtrack to director Baz Luhrmann's freakish musical Moulin Rouge has its way, we'll all be wearing corsets and swinging from the ceiling while the former Mrs. Tom Cruise becomes our favorite new pop sensation. As daring as Luhrmann himself, the compositions test Kidman--who could have easily used a league of backup singers and studio knob-twiddlers to hide her inexperience--and she actually passes. She's no Olivia Newton-John, but she capably mixes Madonna's "Material Girl" with "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" (which is as breathy as Marilyn would've wanted it to be) and goes full throttle on any medley thrown her way. Her cover of "One Day I'll Fly Away" is especially poignant given her much-publicized personal tragedies. Ewan, though, is a real star; his giggly schoolboy brogue morphs into a fun cradle for Paul McCartney's Wings as well as U2's Bono on "Elephant Love Medley." Beck's cover of David Bowie's "Diamond Dogs" is a hit waiting to happen, while Pattie LaBelle's '70s staple "Lady Marmalade" (remade by an all-star cast of divas, Lil' Kim and Christina Aguilera among them) already is. A delicious, racy soundtrack that is equal parts cabaret, glam rock, and trip-hop, Moulin Rouge doesn't disappoint. -Kristy Martin

4.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular..."Collector's Edition"...? May 13, 2002
By Jessica
Format:Audio CD
If you have already purchased the first two Moulin Rouge individual soundtracks, then do not waste your money buying this one. All the tracks are the same (and in the same order) as the first two discs. There is only a single "Lady Marmelade" remix added.
Of course all the music in this edition is absolutely fantastic. But having purchased the first two single discs, I already knew that. I would have hoped that this disc would at least have put the songs from the two discs together in ORDER that they appear in the movie...but it isn't so. Basically it's like having the same two discs, in a different case.
If you have not purchased either of the previous soundtracks, then I WOULD recommend buying this one. Most of the songs directly from the movie are on here, and the instrumentals are beautiful...it's funny how a simple song ("Your Song") can take on such different meanings depending on the tempo/dynamic/instrumentals used. The instrumentals really show how well the music fit the mood of each scene.
There are some songs from the movie NOT included on here, that I really want to hear, including the Green Fairy bit, some of the intro dance mixes, and the final Satine/Christian/company song. Maybe there will be another collector's edition that we can pay even more money for, that will include all these songs.
Until then, enjoy this music which I highly recommend, unless you have already purchased the previous single discs.

If you are hoping that the whole score and all the musical numbers are found in the collector's edition, you will be disappointed. First, the tracks are not ordered in the manner as they occurred in the film. Song bits from the "Sound of Music" and from the Green Fairy are missing. You don't get the film version (which sounds way better!) of "Your Song" or "Children of the Revolution" on either disc. "El Tango de Roxanne" would've been better if the intro dialogue was included. I personally would've liked the soundtrack collection to include some of the notable lines/quotes from the movie as supplemental tracks. The collection is good, but you aren't getting everything that you hope to. My solution to this problem, buy the dvd, capture the songs to your computer, and create your own soundtrack! I created my own "soundtrack" (for my own use) and it's better than the collector's edition could ever be!

After I saw this movie I dashed out to buy the CD to hold me off until I can buy the DVD. What blew me away was the great original soundtrack by Craig Armstrong, especially the ending credit music... I was appalled to find out that not only was that not on the CD, but the original actors were not singing on most of it and were instead featuring well known music stars which was Extremely Disappointing. How can you call a soundtrack original if it doesn't play the music featured in the actual movie?
This also happened on Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet soundtrack. I don't buy the CD because what's her name or what's his face is singing on it, I buy it because the music, with the original actors, moved me in the movie--so I can listen to it and feel what I felt in the movie.
Although I LOVE David Bowie, I wanted to hear John Leguizamo sing the "Nature Boy" which is very key to the whole movie. Even the "Hindi Sad Diamonds" is different from the movie. And they put an old record filter on Nicole's voice when she sings the "Sparkling Diamonds" intro which changes the mood from how it was in the movie. ! This type of "creative license" is actually detrimental to the integrity of the true cut of the film.
I feel cheated...I am not sure why they are doing this or who is making these nonsensical decisions. I even wrote to Interscope of which they never replied. Don't people listen to what the customer's want anymore? It's just like how on TV nowadays they squash the ending credits on a movie with advertising together so you can't enjoy a proper closure--what's the point because you can't even see the credits anymore? It destroys the end of the movie and no one seems to care that it feels improper anymore.

4.0 out of 5 stars hindi sad SOUNDTRACK August 30, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I've had my cd for over 3 months now and I do love what music from the movie they decided to put in there, but like many others I'm disappointed there wasn't more. I too have been looking (for THREE months) for a second (more songs from Moulin Rouge) soundtrack to come out. I was hoping there would be the "lady marmalade" remix that they played in the movie. (it's much more tolerant than the original) I'm also disappointed that the soundtrack version of "Come What May" wasn't even ONE of the film versions. In all actuallity I was hoping they'd have both film versions on the CD. (I love the version @ the end of the movie) I was also looking for the remakes of "Like A Virgin," and "The Show Must Go On." One other one that I enjoyed a lot that wasn't on the soundtrack was the "Spectacular Spectacular" song. In all honesty I believe they wasted their money putting Beck, Fatboy Slim, Valeria, etc. on the soundtrack beacause the only tracks I listen to are "Nature Boy" (while David Bowie is no John Leguizamo.....lol just kidding) "Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend," "Your Song," "One Day I'll Fly Away," "Elephant Love Medley," "Come What May," "El Tango De Roxanne," "Complainte De La Butte" and "Hindi Sad Diamonds."
The sad thing though is that none of the songs that I actually listen to (with the exception of Elephant Love Medley) are as they are originally in the movie.
While the soundtrack will hold me over until the DVD is released, I'm still sadly disappointed in the big wigs who decided to edit this CD.

This is a decent representation of the music from the film, though I found that Moulin Rouge 2 has a better sampling, since it doesn't have music from David Bowie and such.

Not a true sound track, missing two numbers from the movie.
