Thomas and the Magic Railroad

Here's a rather diverting hodgepodge of tunes from the feature film debut of preschool favorite Thomas the Tank Engine, called Thomas & the Magic Railroad. Leadoff track "Really Useful Engine," an orchestrated Broadway-style ditty, is charmingly performed by Steven Page of Barenaked Ladies (he has a child who's a Thomas fan, apparently). Another grown-up guest, iconoclastic singer-songwriter Joe Henry offers the sweet little ballad "Sometimes Things Never Leave You." Then there's the band Atomic Kitten, who render a dance floor-ready version of golden oldie "The Locomotion." Singers Maren Ord and Dayna Manning check in with a pair of ballads more generic than not, but the jazzy "Summer Sunday," performed by a quintet of guys (two of whom are named Dominic), makes up for that. The second half of the album is the winsome orchestral score from the movie. As kids' soundtracks go, this one's slight but undeniably enjoyable.
