Title - 'Enchanted' (Disney)
Artist - Various
It's been a long time since I've been to a movie and thought "I can't wait to hear the soundtrack again," but "Enchanted" was such a case. Alan Menken, as usual, has provided a terrifically evocative score, and the songs he's written with Stephen Schwartz are joyful, witty and oh-so tuneful. And they're a perfect compliment to the film itself, which is an absolute charmer.
Admittedly, the songs work better IN the film, accompanied by the gorgeous animation or spot-on performances by Amy Adams and James Marsden (or the clever pop-up sequence that runs over "Ever Ever After"); but this is a small qualification. I do suggest you see the film first, so you'll have a context in which to enjoy the score.
But I bet that after you do, you'll buy this truly wonderful soundtrack!
