Alvin and the Chipmunks return to the big screen

The No. 1 children's act of all time is back! Alvin and the Chipmunks pick up right where they left off, with the soundtrack to the new FOX film.

The group consists of three singing chipmunks: Alvin, the mischievous troublemaker, who quickly became the star of the group, Simon, the tall bespectacled intellectual, and Theodore, the chubby, impressionable sweetheart.

1. Funky Town
2. Witch Doctor
3. Get Munk'd
4. Mess Around
5. Come Get What You Want
6. Coast 2 Coast
7. Christmas Song "OG Version"
8. We Roll
9. Get You Goin'
10. Only You
11. Christmas Song "New Version"
12. Follow Me (New Song)
13. Christmas Song "Original Version"
14. Witch Doctor "Original Version"

The trio is "managed" by its human "father" and confidant, David Seville who is played by Jason Lee in the film.

The music on the album is prominently featured throughout the film as the Chipmunks navigate the perils of the music industry and fame. In addition to classic versions of their top tunes ("Witch Doctor" and the "Christmas Song"). These new songs update the chipmunks sound and are sure to appeal not only to kids but to mom, dad, grandma and grandpa - who all grew up with Alvin, Simon and Theodore!

As a kid growing up I remember just sitting and waiting for the cartoon to begin and from the sound of the film track there hasn't been a change in the way in which that one fell in love with the trio. More than anything people fell for them for the way they were able to create its sound and voice the song into their own.

No matter how old one gets there is that nostalgia that all can say Alvin and the Chipmunks are as cool as ever. That Alvin, Simon and Theodore! Gotta love them!


Rating: 4 out of 5
