When THE SIMPSONS, the longest running and perhaps most culturally significant cartoon television show ever, finally hit the big screen in 2007 both fans and critics rejoiced. The simple yet vastly nuanced show made the transition to the big screen with class and in style, and the accompanying soundtrack is a nice microcosm of this leap.
Written by acclaimed composer Hans Zimmer, the music for the THE SIMPSONS MOVIE is, appropriately, grander and more sweeping than that used on the show. Yet Zimmer does an excellent job of keeping Alf Clausen's quirky, frenetic musical motifs in place (see the surf rock-inspired "Release the Hounds"), and gives Danny Elfman's beloved title theme a grand cinematic upgrade. It's both odd and exhilarating to hear such thunderous orchestral music being used to support the antics of Homer and company, then again, the same can be said for seeing a 20-foot tall Homer trying to save the world. The limited edition version of the disc comes in a pink frosted doughnut package. Mmm.... limited edition.
