Atlantis: The Lost Empire (Soundtrack)

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
For his score to Disney's latest animated feature, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, composer James Newton-Howard uses the same sensitivity that helped him to capture a child's sense of fear and wonder in his score for the spine-tingler The Sixth Sense. A six-time Oscar nominee Prince of Tides, My Best Friend's Wedding who also wrote the theme for ER and occasionally plays piano with Elton John's band, Newton-Howard has scored more than 65 feature films from a variety of genres. Teaming with Grammy-winning songwriter Diane Warren, Newton-Howard co-wrote the inspirational ballad that opens Atlantis, "Where the Dream Takes You," which is tenderly sung by R&B and pop princess Mya and thematically correlates to the film's...

For his score to Disney's latest animated feature, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, composer James Newton-Howard uses the same sensitivity that helped him to capture a child's sense of fear and wonder in his score for the spine-tingler The Sixth Sense. A six-time Oscar nominee Prince of Tides, My Best Friend's Wedding who also wrote the theme for ER and occasionally plays piano with Elton John's band, Newton-Howard has scored more than 65 feature films from a variety of genres. Teaming with Grammy-winning songwriter Diane Warren, Newton-Howard co-wrote the inspirational ballad that opens Atlantis, "Where the Dream Takes You," which is tenderly sung by R&B and pop princess Mya and thematically correlates to the film's tale of an inexperienced young adventurer. On "Submarine," violins, brass, flutes, timpani, and a wordless chorus conjure up the mystery and intensity of discovering this new land. Although Atlantis begins quietly, by the score's conclusion Newton-Howard's colorful use of triumphant trumpets, waves of violins, and angelic voices evokes an enchanting, watery underworld.

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
Like all good Disney soundtracks, there's a requisite end title song/surefire pop hit sung by a young singer "Where the Dream Takes You," by Mya and a lot of great, whimsical score music. Atlantis is not a musical animated feature, so this is the only actual music/lyrics song, and it's fairly generic Diane Warren-written fare. James Newton Howard's score that follows brims with excitement, with the opening track "The Submarine" tackling a slight Western film motif before marching in with dramatic brass swells. The score follows the film's story, from the danger filled "Milo's Turned Down" through the booming, choir-enhanced adventure explosion "The Leviathan" and on to the mystical "City of Atlantis" and beyond. The main title piece that closes the disc is fairly standard, weepy, swelling stuff that certainly works better attached to images. The packaging features some very cool animation from the movie, including a pinup poster unfolding the CD booklet of three of the characters. That and of course the obligatory advertising for more Atlantis-related products.

    The Most Thrilling Soundtrack

    This is the most exiting,thrilling,and relaxing. If you've seen the Atlantis movie then it's almost like your seeing it again plus Where The Dream Takes You by Mya. It's the best soundtrack I've ever listened to. I think the best song is Milo Meets Kida it's extremely adventrous!!! It's worth every penny, buy it!!!
