Overview

In the tradition of Shrek, Dreamworks has wowed audiences with Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, its animated epic about a runaway stallion's voyage across the Old West. The sentimental feature gets an inspirational boost from the music of Canadian rocker Bryan Adams, who picks up on the success of his hit "All for Love," a collaboration with Sting and Rod Stewart for the Three Musketeers soundtrack, with a set of soulful rockers and ballads. Among the standouts is the bad-boy rock tune "Get off My Back," which Adams delivers with his familiar gritty vocals, and the ethereal ballad "Don't Let Go," sung by fellow Canadian Sarah McLachlan. Throughout, Adams's songs echo the film's themes of survival (as Spirit encounters man for the first time), hope (as the stallion eventually befriends a young Lakota brave), and new beginnings (as Spirit falls in love with a mare named Rain). In the absence of the syrupy songs often associated with kids' movies, this heartfelt soundtrack will appeal to more than just the film's youthful target audience. Similarly, the batch of instrumental pieces included here capture the movie's setting on the untamed American frontier with orchestral grandeur. The pairing of Bryan Adams, who brings his trademark voice and skillful ballad-crafting to the fore, with this sweeping animated flick has produced an uplifting album that's wonderfully sincere and -- no pun intended -- full of spirit.
