Given their spectacularly successful track record, it would be easy to accuse Disney-Pixar of working from a musical formula for this animated, anthropomorphic nod to America's love affair with the automobile. In fact, expected road-themed pop chestnuts like "Route 66" (in covers by Chuck Berry and John Mayer) and The Chords' pioneering "Sh-boom" take a back seat to more contemporary pop-rockers like Sheryl Crow's muscular "Real Gone" and Rascal Flatt's twang-savvy take on Tom Cochrane's "Life is a Highway." Even Randy Newman's underscore is anything but formulaic, expanding the bright orchestral Americana of his Toy Story and Monsters Inc. work to include unlikely dollops of screaming metal guitar and savory blues, touches that evoke both the film's Dixie stock car circuit setting and the musician's own half-Southern roots. In another break with the past Newman hands off the gorgeous, reflective ballad "Our Town" to veteran James Taylor, whose expressive, melancholy voice ably lifts the song — and Randy's Oscar-nod odds with it.
Good, but why so many "Album Only" songs?
these are some good songs, but why is John Mayer's "Route 66" album only? Come on iTunes!!!
wow! this album is filled with great music! too bad some of the songs can only be purchased only if you purchase the album! but otherwise, this album goes great with the film! GREAT MUSIC!
This soundtrack makes me even more excited for the movie! The soundtrack is amazing with excellent songs all the way through. I really like "Real Gone" and "Route 66" - The John Mayer one. Definitely worth the money!
