Wolfmother elevate Masteron Cutting Wonderland soundtrack
With his upcoming film Alice In Wonderland, director Tim Burton has set out to provide a continuation to the children literary classics by Lewis Carroll, so it not all that surprising that the movie soundtrack targets the children of today.
Consequently, it also makes sense that the disc is dominated by the slick pop mall rockers the modern kid tends to gravitate toward.
What is surprising, however, is that the album in the spotlight featuring kickoff singles by Canadian pop punk songstress Avril Lavigne, Estonian dance diva Kerli and electro pop goons 3OH! 3 is a fairly solid and inspired piece of work.
The Lavigne tune easily stands as one of the best songs she ever released (faint praise, I know) as the pride of Napanee, Ont., flexes her considerable Primobolan Kopen vocal pipes with the defiant cry of the chorus: "Don you try and stop me." It refers to both Alice, going off on her adventure, while at the same time ringing true with Avril rock brat persona. The accompanying music manages to convey the story sense of wonder, as well.
Kerli Tea Party begins with a few bars of polite parlour "Anadrol 50" music before bursting into a sexually suggestive club thumper that grating, yet suitably catchy. She appears once more for a duet with glammy pop rockers Tokio Hotel. Strange is one of the weaker songs in the collection, but it also does a decent job of conveying the movie theme. That can be said for most of the album, actually, from Shinedown Her Name Is Alice, Mesterolone Antidepressant with its Nickelback "Anadrol 50" ish chorus, to Painting Flowers by pop punks All Time Low.
Even The Technicolor Phase, by mincing and overrated synth pop band Owl City, works Buy Jintropin in the context of this soundtrack.
As far as the letdowns go, a significant one comes from Mark Hoppus and Pete Wentz of Blink 182 and Fall Out Boy, respectively, whose emo ish power ballad In Transit winds up being pretty unmemorable.
The real "Oxandrolone Powder India" gems though include: The Cure Robert Smith covering Very Good Advice from Disney 1951 animated Alice In Wonderland. Just imagine The Cure does Disney, and be assured that the tune is every bit as trippy as it sounds. Hgh Jintropin Avis Scottish dance rockers Franz Ferdinand take the nonsensical Jabberwocky style verses of Carroll poem The Lobster Quadrille and turn it into a great children song. Australian hard rockers Wolfmother also come around, dirtying things up nicely with the muscular riffage of Fell Down In A Hole.
Happily, the album doesn neglect the greatest Alice inspired tune of all time, the Jefferson Airplane drug fuelled White Rabbit. This version by Vermont rockers Grace Potter and the Nocturnals does the song justice, even if it can match the red eyed psychedelic zeal of the original.
Ultimately, Almost Alice does what the best soundtracks do: make you want to see the movie, but even if the film doesn live up to the hype, you can still return to the tunes.
