This soundtrack may rival the one he produced for The Incredibles! It features period music from the 1930s, complete with a mono filter and record hisses and pops for the song "The Spirit of Adventure." But it also features such lovely waltzes that make me both excited and curious as to how they will match the fantastic images Pixar has produced. Definately the best way to get hyped for UP.

The only thing preventing this from getting a five star rating is the fact there will be no physical CD available.

Yes, yes. We've all voiced our outrage that this isn't receiving a proper CD release. But, so long as we're buying digital instead of a hard copy, why not get as much bang for our buck as possible?

Both Amazon and Apple iTunes have been authorized as the official distributors of this beautiful score. However, iTunes has +2-up over Amazon. For the same price as Amazon, $7.99, iTunes offers better-quality MP4 (.M4A, DRM-free) files, and includes a bonus 25-page PDF "digital booklet" and an informative, exclusive, 00:07:38 featurette entitled "Composing For Characters". In the featurette, director Pete Docter, producer Jonas Rivera, and of course, composer Michael Giacchino give insights into the motifs and themes used in the film, and how they were conceived and used to breathe even greater poignancy into the emotional tale told throughout the movie. We also get to see them recording bits of certain pieces, which is always a treat.

What's a digital booklet, you ask? In its 25 pages, it contains mostly captures from the film, but also includes liner notes and greyscale photos of the score's development team in action. It's a beautiful little thing to behold, and for the same price as Amazon's, why not go for it?

The only downside to this is that the files are, as mentioned, MP4--not MP3. This means they're compatible with fewer programs and audio players than MP3, but have slightly better quality (for those of us with audiophilic ears). Also, a note for Windows users: MP4 means you won't be able to see the tag information (artist, title, album, etc.) in Windows Explorer.

However, this "downside" is totally invalidated if you're a Mac user who uses only iTunes to listen to music and your iPod to listen to it on the go.

Whomever you buy it from, enjoy it--it's a beautiful, poignant, fun score to accompany the finest film I've ever seen.

5/5 stars for music .... 1 star for not releasing the complete score onto c.d, with printed art work .... which looks wonderful!

Not that I want to sound controversial and offend anyone at Disney, but I still believe Disney and Pixar will release the Up soundtrack on to c.d. Why do I believe this, well in Britain at least sales of records are still high, people like to buy something tangible to remind them of the film to link them in some way with the artist and this music is so beautifully composed and the song 'The Spirit of Adventure' is so wonderful just on it's own, that it seems madness not to release a complete soundtrack to the film Up on c.d. I have not bought many Pixar soundtracks, non of note in recent past, however I would have done for this soundtrack, the film is very appealing to me and the gentle sounds which hark back to a wholesome time evokes only nice feelings and thoughts, which makes me believe that this a wonderful story telling score and should be printed on to c.d with this wonderful art work as well.

The "Up" score is brilliant, but the fact that it is not available on physical CD media is the height of lameness.

Happy with the score, but upset with the process.
I like buying the physical higher quality CD versions of music and have always been against file-sharing, but if Disney later releases "UP!" on CD to "double dip" early buyers of the MP3s I will be sharing my MP3 purchase with everyone I know.

I buy many, many soundtracks each year and have most of the Pixar releases, some of which are among my absolute favorites. Why is this title not released as a regular CD for everyone to enjoy? I live in Europe and this music is not available to me anywhere, not here, not on iTunes, not anyplace else, and that sucks big-time. I wish that Disney/Pixar would release this as a regular CD (not tomorrow, today!) in the best possible resolution instead of as a mp3 download exclusively. Good music deserves the best sound.

This is a delightful score from Michael Giacchino. My favorite track is "Married Life". It has a nice retro sound. I love the violin and piano playing here. Another good track is "Memories Can Weigh You Down". It has a grand sounding quality that is very heroic. "The Spirit Of Adventure" is an upbeat song. I love the vocals here. I love the whimsical spirit of "Carl Goes Up". "Kevin Beak'n" is a such an easy listening track. I felt like I was on vacation while listening to this track. I like the tense dramatic sound of "Canine Conundrum" and "Three Dog Dash". "Paradise Found" is a short track, but it has a majestic sound that I like. I love this soundtrack. It is too bad that this is not available in CD form.

It is crazy for the one of the best soundtracks of the year to not be available on CD. To date this score has won the Golden Globe AND the Grammy as best motion picture score and yet Disney refuses to release it on CD.

For those of us who love soundtrack music, the quality of the sound on a CD release is much better than an MP3 download. Please, please, please Walt Disney Records please release this soundtrack on CD.

I'm giving this 5 stars as Michael Giacchino's best work. It's gentle, moving and subtle. Wonderful even if you haven't seen the film and I completely recommend the film as well. If you would like to see Walt Disney Records release this on CD, Contact Walt Disney Company CEO Robert Iger. They need to stop this policy!!!
