Where The Wild Things Are is the film version of one the most beloved books of all time, written by Maurice Sendak. Universal. 2009.

This track is very poignant and sets up the rest of the movie.

We just received this from Amazon today. Ran to listen to it and danced for a long while! My daughter has been so excited for the movie and so I thought I would purchase this to keep her from asking me almost daily if its time to see the movie.
I am also a HUGE fan of the Yea yea yeas and Karen O so I thought hands down I would enjoy this just as much as my little one and it was something we could enjoy with appropriate lyrics :) One thing I did not pay attention to is that it is only the Karen O songs, so if you are looking for the first trailer song by Arcade fire "wake up" you will not find it here. I suggest you buy the whole album of Arcade Fire...its great!
Go get it if you cannot wait to see the film! You will be happy!

"Hi," softly whisperes Max.
"I could use a story," answers his mother.

Thus begins the soundtrack to the highly anticipated release of the much beloved children's classic, 'Where The Wild Things Are.' Fortunately for us, the film is in good hands (Spike Jonze), and luckily, the soundtrack is in the hands of Karen O (of Yeah Yeah Yeahs)and The Kids. The result is a smartly composed fourteen track dream that successfully manages to capture and blend clever child-like tunes (kid choir and all) and sweetly crafted mature pop songs for those adults with an indie flare. Fear not. 'Where The Wild Things Are' ranks among the best soundtracks. It's stands confidently alongside Aimee Mann's 'Magnolia.'

Charming, fun, and yes, quite adorable, 'WTWTA' boasts some endearing tracks. The obvious standout is 'All is Love.' With live children backing up Karen O (who sounds much like a kid herself), "L-O-V-E, it's a mystrey," never sounded so sweet. However, 'Worried Shoes' is a surprise heart-tugger as well. It's a wonderful and much welcome cover of Daniel Johnston's original. 'Capsize,' which doesn't appear in the film, is mysterious, almost tribal-like, and wild, which I suppose is quite appropriate. And who could forget 'Igloo' with it lovely humming accompanied by acoustics and twinkles? I haven't. The rest is simply logical; We hear a few exerpts from the film and the music is consistent throughout. It's a great strat to what could be motion picture triumph-let's hope!

I just saw the movie and thoroughly enjoyed it! The score by Carter Burwell and additional soundtrack by Karen O And The Kids made the movie even better. Really enjoyed both their musical contributions. But now I have to buy two separate soundtracks because they refused to put the entire soundtrack on one cd or two disc set. I don't know if it's a money thing, some logistics I'm unaware of or just something they wanted to do, but in the future... one movie, one soundtrack.

p.s. the Arcade Fire song that's in the trailer is not on the soundtrack or in the movie. Just buy the Arcade Fire album "Funeral"

I just watched the short film on the making of the soundtrack and as it progressed I found myself leaning in further and further toward the screen of my computer. This soundtrack is just beautiful. It makes me feel like jumping on a trampoline and making a fort. Karen O is a goddess.

I saw the movie of WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE when it came out in theatres in October 2009. I thought the film was a solid adaptation and expansion that remained true to the spirit of the original story by Maurice Sendak. There are some very impressive visuals in the movie, but for me the thing I remembered most was the music. The movie soundtrack features original (mostly) songs by Karen O and the Kids. Before seeing the movie, I had never heard of Karen O, but apparently she's the lead vocalist for a band called the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and I might check out some of their work now because I was so impressed by her vocals on WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE. The tracks on this album are a perfect compliment to the film. The songs capture the vibrant enthusiasm, youthful energy, and childlike questioning that is at the heart of the tone and mood of the movie. I have some favorite tracks on the album, including "Igloo", "All Is Love", "Capsize", "Building All Is Love", and "Sailing Home". However, all of the songs flow quite well together; they're more akin to movements than separate pieces, and you can listen to the entire album without realizing that you've heard 14 different tunes. Children, especially those who have seen the film, will probably enjoy the album, but there's a lot here that adults will appreciate perhaps even more.

The movie was quite enjoyable and kept reminding me of The Neverending Story (1984). Boy leaves reality and enters his on fantasy world, then goes back to reality with a memorable experience.

1. The music was quite fitting for this movie, albeit it would have been great if the song from the trailer (The Arcade Fire - Wake up) was included on this CD. It would also had been nice if it was included somewhere in the end credits of the movie.

2. The best song IMO is missing from this CD: When Max finds the boat and begins his journey towards the Wild Things island. This track is very poignant and sets up the rest of the movie. It's a shame it was omitted for some reason or another.

Where Is The Trailer Version of Arcade Fire's Wake Up???
I 100% agree here. The trailer version introduced me to the Arcade Fire and is just a great version of an already great song. Hopefully it gets released as either bonus content or a digital download.
