Almost Alice (Alice Soundtrack) Review

I was soooooo pumped when I found out that they were releasing a cd inspired by the movie! After hearing it, it's not completely awesome, but it's still a good cd.

Ok, I was disappointed in some of the songs because, although they are catchy, the only thing they say that relates to the story is they will throw in a "follow me" or they will mention the Drink Me bottle or something. I was hoping for something a bit more Alice fueled and original. But none of the songs are terrible.

My favorite song on the CD is "The Lobster Quadrille" by Franz Ferdinand. It's way more original than the others and it sounds like it's part of the story.

Other more Alice-ish songs on the soundtrack are: Alice, Her Name is Alice (which is darker but still really good), Painting Flowers, and Welcome to Mystery

Other songs like Poison, Strange and Always Running Out of Time, are all good songs, they just don't have the Alice feel to them... Still, Strange is one of my favorite songs...just not very Alice-ish to me.

And, of course, White Rabbit is on this CD. Its a pretty good version of the song. My favorite White Rabbit, besides the original by Jefferson Airplane, is Collide's version.

Overall, its a pretty good cd... It's fun to listen to when you are sewing. It's better than anything else, music wise, that Disney has compiled as of late.

Welp, That's all for now! *^_^*
