Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Anybody who owns the first two Shrek soundtracks knows that ogres inspire not only charming films but great music--last time out, Pete Yorn, Counting Crows, and Joseph Arthur left monster-sized impressions, and the original movie let loose a masterful rendition of "Hallelujah" by a still-under-the-radar Rufus Wainwright. This go-round the proceedings are playful but backward-looking: Fergie's freewheeling take on the Heart standby "Barracuda" leavens Harry Chapin's "Cat's in the Cradle," and Wolfmother's guitar-heavy "Joker and the Thief" stands up straighter than classic rock fans might like alongside Led Zeppelin's classic "Immigrant Song." Eels returns, this time with two doleful but sweet selections, and Eddie Murphy and Antonio Banderas again cut up (but still manage to carry off) a classic: Here, Sly & the Family Stone's "Thank You (Falletin Me Be Mice Elf Again)" gives up the funk and the fun. The court will be split on a certain actor's absence from the disc; King Arthur, played by Justin Timberlake, might have done a mean cover of Moody Blues' "Nights in White Satin." But we'll never know. --Tammy La Gorce

1.0 out of 5 stars No 9 Crimes? May 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD
How could they publish this soundtrack without the most definitive song from the movie - "9 Crimes" from Damien Rice? Anyone who has seen the movie knows what I'm referring. Quite a shame - I wouldn't waste the money on this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reason for omission of "9 Crimes" May 21, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I agree with a previous reviewer about the omission of "9 Crimes" by Damien Rice. The song has explicit lyrics, and the producers may have felt it was an inappropriate choice. However, why they chose to keep it in the movie we can only guess! I got the song from iTunes. Beautiful!

This is good overall. But, where is 9 crime as other people asking the same thing? It is not included!! I am a bit disappointed in that.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing beats the original August 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The original Shrek Soundtrack was the best soundtrack ever. I still listen to it and it has a permanent slot in my car's cd player. The 2nd soundtrack blew. The 3rd? Eh. I haven't bothered. 9 Crimes by Damien Rice, however, is a great song. The woman singing in it is Lisa Hannigan and the song is available as a CD single and as one of the tracks on his "9" CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4 and a half stars!! June 16, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The soundtrack to Shrek the third, like it's predecessors, features a diverse array of artists. While not as good as the first (which was brilliant - by the way, to the other reviewer, it DID have Rufus Wainwright singing "Hallelujah" on it, I have the cd), this is still very good. Having not seen the movie yet (so I don't know what was omitted), and having already owned "9 crimes" by Damien Rice (on his "9" album) whose omission bothered most, I'm writing my review based on the music on the cd.

Appearing again (he's been on all 3 soundtracks) is Eels, opening with the upbeat "Royal pain", and appearing again the sunny but merlancholic "Losing streak".

Black Eyed Pea Fergie does a chugging version of the Heart rocker "Barracuda". "Best days" by Matt White is sunny and upbeat, the choppy rocker "Joker and the thief" by Wolfmother (with wailing vocals), the jangly, midtempo "Other ways" by Trevor Hall (great voice), and "What I gotta do" is a soulful ballad by Macy Gray (also featured on her superb new CD "Big").

We get the singing donkey again, Eddie Murphy (with Antonio Banderas), on a remake of the funky Sly & The Family Stone hit "Thank You (Falletin Me Be Mice Elf Again)". "Final showdown" is a showtune like piano ballad by Maya Rudolph and Rupert Everett, and "Charming's plan" is a sweeping cinematic instrumental by Harry Greggson-Williams.

Some oldies show up; "Immigrant song" by Led Zeppelin, "Live & let die" by Wings, "Do You Remember Rock 'N' Roll Radio?" by The Ramones, and the lovely "Cats in the cradle" by Harry Chapin.

Good, 4 and a half stars really!

2.0 out of 5 stars Shoulda used original Barracuda June 3, 2007
By Mary C.
Format:Audio CD
Soundtrack is okay, but I was disappointed they didn't just use the original version of Barracuda by Heart. Why a cover & why Fergie? Sorry, but she's not in the same league as Ann & Nancy Wilson.

Song in Shrek the Third but not on the Soundtrack
It's the Damien Rice song called "9 Crimes". I came home after seeing the movie and immediately wanted to know what song that was too. Saw some peoples reviews and a few saying, why did they leave out the 9 Crimes song, so I downloaded it and sure enough..that's the one. :)

Missing Songs
I think it is called "Never Been to Me" -- it is a great old song. It has been in my head since I saw the movie. It goes "I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me."
