The Nickelodeon series "Spongebob Squarepants"--a sharp, funny cartoon that attracts more viewers than any other program on the channel and has spawned a $2 billion-a-year franchise--reaches the big screen with The Sponge Boy SquarePants Movie. Its album features music written for the animation plus live action film and perfrormed by a Modern Rock roster appealing to the show's college audience, including The Flaming Lips, Wilco, The Shins and The Dust Brothers' Mike Simpson. The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie: Music From the Movie and More-slated to be in a bright yellow jewel case-is destined to be that rare soundtrack that is both a favorite of kids and a college cult classic.

"I am a closet SpongeBob fan (and probably not the only one), due to my kids TV and movie watching habits. I've seen the movie 3 times, heard the soundtrack once and decided I had to have it (for the kids of course). My favorite cut is SB himself singing "Best Day Ever." This is without a doubt the cutest, happiest, and most Beach Boys-esque song ever recorded (hats off the the brilliant production team who obviously spent many hours listening to Pet Sounds). Many of the other cuts are quite good, including the Wilco and Electrocute songs. A couple of exceptions: Patrick the Starfish cannot sing a note, and I defy anyone over 30 to listen to this for longer than 1 minute. The Motorhead song also, well, sucks (fortunately I can hit FF faster than my kids noticed I skipped 'em). If you want a fun, upbeat, catchy CD to listen to with your kids in the car this is it."
Great album for a great movie

"The person below obviously doesn't know anything about good music. Some very good bands were selected for this album. Allow me to show you...*Ahem* MY REVIEW
Track 1: Spongebob Squarepants Theme (Avril Lavigne) - I don't like Avril Lavigne, but this version of the theme song is OK. Could be better but her voice kind of ruins it. 2/5
Track 2: Spongebob and Patrick Confront the Psychic Wall of Energy (The Flaming Lips) - A very nice, happy sounding peaceful song. This is one of the best on the whole album. I love the way it's sung. The music video is also good. 5/5
Track 3: Just a Kid (Wilco) - A REALLY catchy song. I like the part where the weird kids come in singing "Na na na na na na na na na!" This is fun to listen to. 4/5
Track 4: The Goofy Goober Song (Mike Simpson) - Just like what Mr. Tex said, this is my favorite on the album and is irresistibly catchy. I really like the drum & bass parts, and I LOVE the demented little children in the background going "Blah blah blah blah blah blah". This is hilarious. 6/5
Track 5: Prince Paul's Bubble Party (The Waikikis, Prince Paul & Wordsworth) - I don't really like rap music, but this track is somewhat decent. Most of it is samples from the Bubble Stand episode of Spongebob Squarepants. 3/5
Track 6: Bikini Bottom (Electrocute) - I really don't like this one. It's too poppy and happy and annoying. The only thing that saves this from getting 0 is the fact that I like the keyboard parts. 1/5
Track 7: The Best Day Ever (SpongeBob) - A fun bouncy song with a mix of instruments. Sounds kind of like The Beach Boys. The only thing I really don't like about is SpongeBob's voice. 4/5
Track 8: They'll Soon Discover (The Shins) - A really good track, even if I can't understand what the heck the guy is saying. Very good rhythm. 5/5
Track 9: Ocean Man (Ween) - Really really catchy. The ukulele sounds very nice against the guitar and the demented vocal. And the guitar solo is nice. Much better then the Loop de Loop song the band did for You're Shoe's Untied. 5/5
Track 10: Under my Rock (Patrick) - There's just something about this song I really like, but I can't put my finger on it. Maybe it's the nice keyboard part, harmonica, or the goofy lyrics. It's good. 5/5
Track 11: Now That We're Men (Spongebob, Patrick, & The Monsters) - A good song, but it's ruined on here! It's really all about the visual humor of the scene where Spongebob and Patrick sing this song in the movie. Plus, now the knee slapping part doesn't make any sense! 3/5
Track 12: Goofy Goober Rock (Tom Rothrock with Jim Wise) - This is one of the better-known pieces on the album. It's good but I like Mike Simpson's version better. The way they use this song in the movie is hilarious! 4/5
Track 13: You Better Swim (Motorhead) - This is my least favorite on the album. I dunno. I guess I just don't like this kind of music. The guy's voice irritates me and the guitar riff is really boring. 0/5
Track 14: The Jellyfish Song by The Jellyfish Band (Plus-Tech Squeezebox Featuring SpongeBob) - A catchy, fast, mostly instrumental keyboard number. I kind of wish it was longer. 4/5
Track 15: Spongebob Squarepants Theme (Movie Version) (The Pirates) - Pretty much the opposite of Avril Lavigne's version of the theme. Kind of relaxing. A very good way to wrap up this album. 5/5
In a nutshell: A good soundtrack for the movie. Although it could have been better at parts, it's pretty solid and nice to listen to. Recommended.
