Product Description

Dreamwork's 1st animated feature, the Prince of Egypt, is an epic drama that tells the story of 2 men - one born a Prince, the other born a slave. This original soundtrack album boasts the highly anticipated duet between superstars Mariah Carey & Whitney Houston, an a capella track by platinum+ superstars Boyz II Men and 6 new songs by Academy Award winning lyricist Stephen Schwartz (Pocahontas). Academy Award-winner Hans Zimmer (The Lion King) composed the score.

Amazon.com

It should be little surprise that of the three Prince of Egypt CDs, this one, which contains music actually used in the picture, is the best. The disc features songs written by Academy Award winners Stephen Schwartz and Hans Zimmer. It also showcases the always impressive vocal talents of Ofra Haza on several tracks. The disc also crams in a few singles--ranging from the solid Boyz II Men track "I Will Get There" to the average "The Prince of Egypt (When You Believe)" by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey to the dismal "Through Heaven's Eyes," by K-Ci & JoJo. But ultimately, Haza steals the show on tracks like "Cry" and the gorgeous "Deliver Us," performed with Eden Riegel. Other standouts include "Playing with the Big Boys," by Steve Martin and Martin Short, and a pleasant, if not unexpected, vocal by Michelle Pfeiffer on "When You Believe." --Aaron Tassano

This movie came out several years ago, and I still relish listening to the soundtrack today, particularly tracks 2, 7, 8, 12, 14 and 15. I am not a fan of the junky contemporary stuff they stuck on there, but you don't have to listen to it anyway.
Here's a review of my favorite tracks.
Track 2 begins softly, for the intro of the movie. Then WHOMP, Israelites slaving in the desert. Incredible music. It perfectly fits the scene: a mighty people straining to be free. The all-male choir for the Israelites is perfect, as are the lyrics. And having some of the singing in Hebrew, brilliant. The music softens for Yechebed's lullaby to Moses, intensifies as the floating cradle encounters the dangers of the Nile, and softens again as the crib is found safe by Pharaoh's daughter. It swells again into the male choir praying to God on High for...Deliverance.
Track 7 is an excellent track sung by Jethro (and no, NOT the Clampets') to Moses about his (or anybody's) meaning in life, whether he knows it or not.
Track 8 is beyond words. It's truly like the very music of Heaven is playing, a celestial choir singing the most awesome tune in the world. If any tune on earth could contain God's glory, this one could. This track alone is worth the price.
Track 14 begins slowly and builds as the Israelites are set free, and Miriam and Zipporah sing of the miracles God provided for them. A great little in-the-middle part, the Israeli children sing a praise song to Jehovah in Hebrew, which peaks in the chorus of Miracles.
Track 15 is another spectacular track. If you've ever wondered what the music could be when God divides waters for His people, this is pretty close! Another track worth listening to.
Disappointingly, the soundtrack does NOT include the score for the chariot race towards the beginning of the movie. That was a mistake not to put it on the disc.
Whether you believe in God, Moses, or the Bible or not, this is an awesome CD to buy.

The Prince Of Egypt is an animated movie soundtrack and as such it is replete with songs, but unlike most other animated soundtracks, The Prince Of Egypt contains much of Hans Zimmer's understated score. THe songs are fine and some are interesting, but Hans Zimmer's score is exceptional. While many of his scores are action oriented, Zimmer combines the exotic sounds of the Middle East with an inspiring score. His theme for God is one of the most beautiful that Zimmer has ever written. The only complaint I have is that the cd producers could have written off the contemporary versions of the movie songs at the end and added more score.

This is one of my favorite soundtrack/scores of all time. First of all, the movie is absolutely incredible, and is my favorite animated movie (along with Iron Giant). The soundtrack is equally great. The thing about this soundtrack, is the songs are actually extremely good. They all go well with the film, have great lyrics, and catchy beats. My personal favorite are the film version of "When you Believe" and "The Plagues". Every song from the film is wonderful. Unfortunately, the songs by the pop singers are horribly weak in comparison, but it's never hard to press the skip button a couple times. But as good as the songs are on this album, the definate highlight is the score. Hans Zimmer has outdone himself, creating one of my all time favorite scores. The music goes perfectly with the film, and every score track on the album is excellent. Two of the best tracks I've ever heard, The Red Sea and The Burning Bush, are so grand and beautiful you can't imagine. Only once has Zimmer provided a better score (The Thin Red Line), but this is so extremely close behind it. If you are a film score fan, you must own this cd, even if you are against songs on soundtracks. This is Zimmer in top form, and if you pass it up you will be missing so much. Even friends who aren't the biggest Zimmer fans believe this is his one brilliant work. Grab it now, and you will be listening to it for many, many years to come.

I have so much love for this CD, it's a little embarrassing. The songs and music are so beautiful and captivating. My personal favorites are "Deliver Us" the movie version of "When You Believe" and "Burning Bush." The vocals are fabulous, and I think it's adorable when the children sing in "When You Believe." I listen to the singing tracks when I'm in a mood to be energized. However, the beautiful music in "Burning Bush" and "Red Sea" as well are excellent. I listen to this album almost every night before bed, not because it's boring, but because I find it very 'centering.' I am not a fan of the music included that was not from the moive, but it's not terrible, and it doesn't detract from the CD as a whole. A 5-star CD if there ever was one.

If you're a fan of soundtracks, this one's good. If you're a fan of Ofra Haza, it's even better. On the tracks where she sings, her voice is uplifting and beautiful. This movie was my introduction to her as a performing artist, and I've been a huge fan since.

Besides Ofra, it's great fun listening to Ralph Fiennes sing on his track, as well as Steve Martin and Martin Short on theirs. The music is well orchestrated and moving, and the pipes and drums in the opening of "All I Ever Wanted" still gives me chills. I was also happy that the songs hadn't been changed much from the ones used in the actual movie, which is a plus if that's the version you enjoyed most.

All in all, its enjoyable to listen to.
