What if mankind had to leave Earth and somebody forgot to turn the last robot off? Academy Awardr- winning writer/director Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo) and the inventive storytellers and technical geniuses at Pixar Animation Studios transport moviegoers to a galaxy not so very far away for a new computer-animated cosmic comedy about a determined robot named WALL E. After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, WALL E discovers a new purpose in life when he meets a sleek search robot named Eve. This encounter leads to WALL E chasing Eve across the galaxy and sets into motion one of the most exciting and imaginative comedy adventures ever brought to the big screen.

If you know the Wall-E movie, you will certainly remember it while listening to Newman's score. If you are a Peter Gabriel fan (e.g, So), then you will love his song included on this album. If you watch the movie Wall-E, then you will see how Gabriel's song integrates perfectly with Newman's movie composition as the credits roll at the end. Gabriel's song is fitting at the end; it is a lyrical account of what just happened: a thrilling adventure, love story, and then a return home.
It's most of the music from Wall-E. It's great music. It always reminds me of my favorite scenes from the movie when I listen to this compilation.
It doesn't include ALL the music. For example, the piece that starts with low flutes at 17:10 in the movie where Eve is shown searching industrial wasteland. It continues through 18:13, over a minute, which if it were included would not even make it the shortest track. Not sure what they were thinking. There are other sections that are missing as well.
When I buy a soundtrack, I want ALL the music, without any of the other sound from the movie. I don't care how short or insignificant the tracks are; I can always skip tracks I don't want to hear or remove them from a playlist. I can't add music in that isn't there on the CD.
Also, the music isn't in the same order as it appears in the movie. I'm not sure why the ordering was changed.
The movie was so visual that when I've mentioned to people that I got this soundtrack they often remark something like, "I don't remember the music." Then they hear the music and fall in love with it, too. The reality is that they were so seamlessly melded together that the movie wouldn't have been nearly as good without this wonderful music.
Oddly, the most significant theme, the one that introduces us to WALL-E's complex and inquisitive character, isn't isolated and finally named on its own track until well into the score--a soulful little clip titled All That Love's About--which is, more or less, the main idea within the movie.
WALL-E is the most satisfying movie I've seen in quite a while and the music carries the story and scenes along beautifully. The selection of the Hello Dolly songs is also a strange genuis. Put on Your Sunday Clothes is hard to put out of your head. In the film, the tracks Down to Earth and Horizon 12.2 accompany one of the most pleasant closing credit sequences of a film anyone might hope to see.
Five stars to this CD.

He has listened to it every night at bedtime since we bought it.
Exploring sounds from electronic in his on minimalistic way, combined with the beautifully of his orchestral textures chords progression, he's able to create great soundtrack.
WALL-E OST is really a must have if you like Pixar films and/or Thomas Newman Works.
