Title - 'Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D'
Artist - Carl Thiel & Robert Rodriguez
On the surface, Marissa Cortez Wilson has it all. Married to a famous spy hunting television reporter, a new baby and intelligent twin step kids!
But in reality, trying to mother Rebecca and Cecil, who clearly don't want her around, is her toughest challenge yet.
Also, her husband, Wilbur, wouldn't know a spy if he lived with one which is exactly the case - Marissa's a retired secret agent!
Carl Thiel & Robert Rodriguez's score to Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D kicks off in fine spy style with the pulsating 'Spy Mom' track. Full of musical bits, bobs and swoops, the track sums up the entire movie in one two and a half minute burst!
The quickness of 'Rebecca & Cecil' is more laid back, more Rodriguezesque flavored, if you will, whereas 'Panic Room' strains its way through its near four minutes. 'Jet Luge Chase' is a fast-paced piece, with a haunting 'Carmen Cortez' following behind.
'Spy Baby,' 'Argonaut,' 'T.O.O.T.' and 'Big Time Watch Stop' are all plot pieces whose musical flow is more filler than stand out. Whereas tracks like the very Bondish (and sadly too short) 'Wilbur Wilson,' 'Timekeeper' and the bouncy 'Hammer Hands' are all forceful, stand alone works.
'O.S.S' is an X-filesish tune, with the very short 'Juni Cortez' and 'Danger D'amo' both upbeat and soaring. 'Spy Kids 2.0' is a compound track to the album, make no mistake, with the tranquil-starting 'Time And Time Again' and the building 'Danger's Past' both close behind.
The album closes out with 'Time's Up,' the quaintly-Bondish 'Spy Hunter' and the euphoric 'You Have Been Activated.'
