Original soundtrack to the 2011 motion picture. Jam-packed with music, the movie has all of the Muppets performing classic and new songs that you will love to experience over and over again...including "Rainbow Connection," "Mahna, Mahna," "Muppet Theme Song" and more! Plus, newly recorded songs written by Bret McKenzie (Flight of the Conchords) like "Man or Muppet" featuring Jason Segel and Peter Linz, "Life's A Happy Song" and "Me Party" performed by Amy Adams and Miss Piggy.

It may only be 40 minutes long but if you like the Muppets and enjoy silly, engaging, eclectic music with a lot of variety, you'll find a lot to love in this new Muppet Movie soundtrack. Even the `old' songs from the original movie seem revitalized and new.

There are 15 intro tracks on the CD, usually spoken dialogue from the movie, and 15 actual songs.

Both Jason Seigel (Gary) and Peter Linz (Walter the Muppet) can really carry a tune and do a great job on the tracks they're featured on together. 'Life's a Happy Song' it sweet, but not overly so. The `Are you a Man or a Muppet' track is a GEM. Clever, hilarious and touching. ("Am I a man or a Muppet? If I'm a man then I'm a muppet of a man.") It has kind of a 70's rock ballad feel, which I'm guessing is Jason Seigel's influence. Definitely my favorite track on the CD so far.

`Me and Julio...' is not a remake as I thought (hoped) it might be, but it's still a great classic which fits in with the feel the soundtrack. 'We Built this City' is also the Starship original and, in my opinion, doesn't really seem to go along with the tone of the soundtrack. I'm curious to see how both fit into the movie.

`Rainbow Connection' is on the soundtrack twice. The first remake is an advertisement sung by Fozzy. It's mildy funny the first time around but it just makes me miss the original. Luckily you get to a better version later on in the CD.

`Me Party' is a latin-flavored disco song featuring Amy Adams and Miss Piggy - Amy has a sweet voice and the track is a solid entry on the CD. ("What happens at a Me Party stays at a Me Party...")

`Let's Talk about Me' is one of the best tracks on the soundtrack, featuring Nathan Pacheco and Chris Cooper... rapping. Weird, but it totally works.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Time to Play the Music... November 21, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying that I wasn't looking for this album.

It somehow popped up in the recommendations for me and I figured what the heck.

Turns out, it's a pretty good album!!! If you like the style and comedy of the Muppets, then this album will probably make you smile.

There are a couple of different songs on the album by artists of old, but to me the real stars are the original songs and the songs done by the Muppets themselves. Even the Muppet Show Theme seems to be a strong entry in this collection.

I found myself clucking along with the chickens in the Muppet rendition of "Forget (or the explitive version) You" by Cee Lo Green. It's funny how much the clucks actually sound like the song, if you know the song.

I also really enjoyed "Man or Muppet" by Jason Segal. I've enjoyed Segal's songs before, mainly the couple of them from "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," and this one fits with those as well. It's basically a duet but it's entertaining the whole time.

Songs done by the Muppets like "Smells Like Teen Spirit" are just hilarious, especially when they are done by a Barbershop Quartet.

The album finishes strongly with a Muppet version of "Mah Na Mah Na," which you may not know by name, but you've probably heard it before...I never knew what it was called, but as soon as it started, I knew what it was from numerous commercials and other things.

As is the case with lots of movie soundtracks these days, this one includes lots of little segments of lines from the film. Often, I find these to be completely unnecessary and they usually have nothing to do with the songs on the album, but this one seems a bit different. Many of them go hand in hand with the song that they come before or after.

Overall, if you're a fan of the Muppets, you're going to absolutely love this album. I know I did!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Muppets YET! November 24, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Saw the movie last night, got super nostalgic with each old song, got super excited with each new song. If you're searching for that familiar warm and uplifting spirit, the Muppets have not lost it--they've only expanded it!

See the movie. Buy the soundtrack. Share, repeat.

And have a Happy Thanksgiving! :D

5.0 out of 5 stars Flight of the Conchords November 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD
If you miss FOTC, you can get a piece of it with this movie and the soundtrack. Bobin was a major writer/director for the show and it seems he employed his old boss, Brett McKenzie, to be the musical coordinator. Part of what makes the movie so wonderful is the soundtrack (although there are many more reasons). And part of what makes the soundtrack so wonderful is Brett's contribution. Much like Rio's "Pretty Bird" had many hallmarks of a FOTC piece due to Jermaine, you can feel the impact of the group all over this movie. The easiest is the music, which is much more erudite than any Muppet music of the past. "Man or Muppet" could have come right out of the duo's act or the show. And once you start realizing Brett's role, you see it more in such songs as "Let's Talk About Me" which seemed odd in the movie until a second viewing where you consider it in regards to Hippopotamus, and then it makes a ton of sense. Even "Life's a Happy Song" has much of the wordplay you would associate with the 4th most popular parody folk band from New Zealand. But aside from the movie, there are visuals via Bobin that harken back to the great show. Kristen Schall makes an appearance, Amy Adams's diner scene makes a shout-out to the opening credits of FOTC (which of course make reference to Charlie Chaplin) and the final scene is pulled right out of "Brown Paper, White Paper".

So aside from being the best Muppet Movie ever, if you are a FOTC devotee, there's a little extra for you in this. I've bought the album and felt quite justified to place the music in my "FOTC" play list :) Enjoy
