Surprised that this forum isn't already up and running since the soundtrack has been out for a couple of days already. Anyway, I just wanted to have somewhere people could post their thoughts on the soundtrack whether it be praise, critique, or what have you. But here's my thoughts on the album. On the whole, I love the crap out of it. The songs from the movie are great and so too are the songs made by different artists (with the exception of one, but I'll get to that in a minute). The movie songs sound great and hearing a lot of the new actors do some of the singing (all of which I had seen in films, but never heard sing before) was a definite treat as all of them do an amazing job in their vocals. The non-movie songs are just as great, being very poppy, upbeat songs that fit in perfectly with the tone and themes of the show. Out of the entirety of the album, I can't really choose a favorite amongst the movie songs since they're all so good, but I can say without a doubt that "Off To See The World" is my favorite of the non-movie songs. I do have a couple of gripes, and while none of them are dealbreakers for me I feel that they should be mentioned. For one thing, I hate the song "Neighsayer". It's incredibly boring, extremely forgettable, and was by far the worst way to end the album. The only positive of the song that I can think of is that because it's at the end of the album, at least you can listen to all the good stuff first so it doesn't taint any song that would've come after it. And while I liked Sia's 'Rainbow' as a whole, I did notice that the song doesn't really have a climax and just sort of sticks to the same tone and tempo as the rest of the song. However, I still like it and it's not too much of a departure from a lot of other songs that Sia has done throughout her discography (of which I made it a point to listen to the entirety of before the album came out to give me potential hype to her song). My only other gripes are the smallest of the bunch and it's these: for one thing, I'm pretty sure they aren't including every song that was in the movie based on multiple sources of information we've heard prior to it's release. Maybe I'm wrong about that, but I just have a feeling. The other minor gripe is the lack of any musical score present on the album, but this gripe is by far the smallest since I didn't really expect Hasbro to release any of the movie score since they have neglected to do so for the show itself so I was already expecting it not to happen for the movie. Maybe if the movie is successful enough, they'll release a full score of the movie or at the very least, someone will rip the score from the film when it releases on Blu-Ray, but until then, no dice. While I definitely went more into detail about my dislikes of the album then my likes, know that all around I think this album is great and it definitely brings my hype levels for the movie even higher than they already were from all the other stuff coming out about the movie recently. For any fan of MLP, I highly recommend it and say that you will not be disappointed with it. Buy it. Right now.
