    With a new Muppet movie one of the most anticipated merchandise releases is the official soundtrack. Order the Muppets Most Wanted original soundtrack scheduled to release Tuesday March 18.

    It's pretty strange to say but I don't like the soundtrack as an album. That said, I love the songs on it. Pretty strange. :concern:

    The songs on the album are really good but need the images from the movie. The soundtrack of The Muppets is song-based really good as itself. I listen to it regularly. I think I'm not going to listen to the new soundtrack as often. They've ordered a sequel is the one song that just lifts the album. The other one is Together again (obviously). But that song is a little bit ruined because of the second again after Together Again. In the movie it will be hilarious but when I listen to it on the album after the second again I goosebump. It isn't nice to my ears. The rest of the songs are real fun but doesn't have the relisten factor I loved on The Muppets soundtrack.

    The demo's are a fun extra. The impressions of Bret are sometimes spot on. It's nice to know how a song got started.

    Since I still have to wait another week or so for the album, I've been listening out for it on Live365. The Interrogation Song is the only one I've heard so far and it is AWESOME! As someone who takes music seriously, I'll give the soundtrack a proper review once I have it in my posession.

    My favorite songs have to be Were Doing A Sequel, Im Number One and Ill Get You What You Want! Those are just favorites I love all the songs! Together Again sounds pretty amazing except the Russian part its kind of weird!

    So far, my fave is Welcome To The Big House, but that and I'll Get You What You Want are all I've been able to hear.

    The Big House has a delightful 50's doo-wah feel to it, Tina Fay's spoken part and the trumpet sound effects add to my liking of the song overall. :)

    I really dig the remake of Together Again (Again!) as the finale, but much like the other numbers it does seem to be missing the context of the movie heavily. That's the only thing I can criticize here: there really aren't any stand-out, standalone numbers here like the 2011 film had. While the songs are fun and catchy with clever lyrics, it's sown quite tightly to the film itself. None of these are going to win an Oscar, but I can say I never, ever expected "Man or Muppet" to nab one in the first place anyways. "We're Doing a Sequel" is obviously the strongest song both comedically and musically.

    I'm just anxious to see how it all ties into the final product this Friday!

    I honestly think a couple of songs could go for Oscars! Were Doing A Sequel, Im Number One, Ill Get You What You Want, and Something So Right could defintely go in my opinion!

    Can someone please put the full version of Moves like Jagger on YouTube? And if there's something in the track that deals with the plot, could you edit that out? Thank you!

    Remember in the other thread, when I said that "Something So Right" sounded sappy? Well I was wrong.

    Very,

    Very wrong.

    Simply put, the song is near perfect. Good vocals, instrumentals, and a delightful blend of well known (Piggy, Pepe, Beaker) and lesser known (Link) Muppets. It's almost as if they pulled names from a hat to see which Muppets would be in the song. Although, I actually thought that Link was Statler at first (Wow. I don't get to type that sentence too often), from the way it sounded.

    Good god, Matt Vogel is doing a terrific job with Floyd. There are no flaws in his performance as Floyd, as far as I'm concerned. I'm not saying other performers are off, they're doing spectacular. But, Matt practically replicates Jerry's Floyd. Amazing.

    If there's one track that's a shoo-in for an Oscar nomination, it's this one. If you can only buy one song from this album, make sure it's this one.

    Amazing.

    My favorite song is I'll Get You What You Want (Cockatoo in Malibu). It's such a fun and catchy song. Brett McKenzie's version is incredible as well! :)

    That's why you shouldn't judge a song until you've FULLY listened to it. So to those who actually have the soundtrack are there any good pictures in the booklet?

    Thank you Casey! It's good to be back. I'm just torn on whether it's worth getting the disc or just downloading it off of iTunes.

    I just got it. Walmart had it...(which went today)...and they had it. They didn't have it yesterday. But there are some really cool pictures. There's even a picture of Bret McKenize with a Build A Muppet Character of himself. Pretty funny.
