Album Review

While Disney and Pixar's previous films — Toy Story, Toy Story 2, A Bug's Life, and Monsters Inc. — relied on the musical gifts of Randy Newman for their scores and charming theme songs, for the undersea adventure Finding Nemo they recruited the skills of another Newman. Academy Award-nominated composer Thomas Newman, to be exact, and his eclectic, slightly ethereal style is an inspired match for the film's aquatic setting. From the "Jaws"-like tension in "Barracuda" to the gentle, rippling "Nemo Egg (Main Title)," Newman captures the wonder, in its most terrifying and playful forms, of the water-dwelling denizens that make up Finding Nemo's cast of characters. Best of all, even though this is music for a so-called children's movie, Newman didn't dumb down his style or try to make it perky and "kid-friendly"; tracks such as "Wow," "First Day," and "Lost in Fog" are just as haunting and complex as anything he would write for a "grown-up" film. That's not to say, however, that Newman didn't have fun writing the music or that listeners won't enjoy more playful tracks like "The Turtle Lope," "Mr. Ray, Scientist," or "...P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney." From dreamy to scary to silly, each of Newman's 39 cues for Finding Nemo is a wonderfully intricate, miniature composition. While this score may not be quite as dazzling as his work on scores like American Beauty, this is still a thoughtful and rewarding collection of music that is absolutely perfect for the film it supports.

Stupid Review

Thats brilliant. Give a low rating to the soundtrack because iTunes doesn't have the movie. Are you kidding me? If you even read to the "Review Tips" it says "Review the music on it's own terms". Hey, I should give this soundtrack a low rating because I'm afraid of sharks. Hahaha, please dude. iTunes makes plenty of money. Get real with your time. That was ridiculous, and the absolute wrong place (and method) to air your grievance. In terms of the soundtrack, Newman does another brilliant job of blending synthetic sounds with his orchestral palette. He illustrates perfectly the embodiment of water and the "deep sea" through sound. Every other track makes you feel as though you are underwater, and the dramaticism of the music fits perfectly with the movie (which I saw before I wrote this review by the way) as well as being capable of standing on it's own. Congrats Newman.

i found nemo...and a great soundtrack!

Newman has done it again...he captures the beauty of the ocean just with music and it's amazing. best song, hands down is Nemo Egg it's so beautiful and i love it the Jellyfish one is good too...omg i gtg! i need to watch the movie now! lol Where's my Squishy?...I saw him right here...i think...hmm...

Beautiful Music For The World Beneath the World...

Thomas Newman really takes you into "the world beneath the world" (a.k.a. the ocean) with this score... My favorite track is "Main Title: Nemo Egg". It's a great song to listen to at the lake at sunset, twilight, or nighttime. Another minimalist album on iTunes that may soothe Thomas Newman fans is APOURIA: THE FIREFLY TREE (demo sessions).
