The first song on this compilation, the classic "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane, is the best, and it's all downhill from there. Most of the other selections must have seemed like good ideas, but they don't really grab my ears. The performers are mostly solid musicians, but this isn't their best material. The Elvis Costello number, "Deep Dark Truthful Mirror," placed near the end, helps hold the whole thing together, but it doesn't rescue it. Thankfully this is a fairly cheap CD, so I don't feel that I totally wasted my money. I think it may work as background music when I'm doing studio work.

I bought this CD b/c I'm on an Alice In Wonderland kick. BUT I feel like it's missing it's "muchness."
I mixed it on a playlist on my iPod with "Almost Alice" from the movie, and the two CD's blend beautifully.
However, standing on its own, this CD is just okay. I hate the Elvis Costello song, but love the ScarJo one.
The best one is the Jefferson Airplane track of course! The Cure and Sisters of Mercy make nice additions as well.

Although I feel like "White Rabbit" should have come a little later in the album, I enjoyed it thoroughly. It's a good example of how many different perspectives and interpretations there are of Lewis Carroll's work. I listen to a lot of Classic Rock and even though there's a fair percentage of newer stuff on here, I liked it.
Like CheeryTomato, I use this as background music while I'm working, but I enjoy the album on its own too.
Lots of the "Music Inspired by [blank]" albums are, from my experience, boring or even painful to listen to. But this was a really good buy.
