A score full of life

"Randy Newman does it again with A Bug's Life. His previous efforts were the Toy Story scores, but this one clearly outdoes them both and is some of the best music written for a Disney film. The music itself is part jazz, part big band, and orchestral. The orchestral is by far the best of the three. The song "The Time of Your Life" written and performed by Randy Newman himself is an upbeat catchy tune that he has a knack for writing. The main theme is a heroic melody that is heard in "Flik Leaves", "Return to the Colony", "Flik's Return", "Victory" and "A Bug's Life Suite", which contains a bit of all the orchestral music in the score. The big band stuff is found in "Flik Machine" and "The City". The jazz part is heard in the song "The Time of Your Life" and pops up now and then, especially at the beginning of "Flik Leaves". The action music is superb and blows you out of your seat. It is present in "Red Alert", "Robin Hood", "Dot's Rescue", "Grasshoppers' Return", "The Bird Flies", and "The Ants Fight Back", as well as parts of "A Bug's Life Suite". The action music is dominated by a powerful brass section and snare drums. This soundtrack has a little something for everyone for all ages. It's got swinging jazz, groovy big band tunes, and powerful orchestral music. A must have!"
A Good, Solid Disney Score

"It's solid, and some of the cues really sweep you up, but this is Disney, remember. However, don't get me wrong, Disney has a tradition of fantastic scores, and this one doesn't really disappoint... It's a good, solid score, and if you liked the film, you should definately get this."
