I like it!! One of the most variation soundtrack. The bests songs are "Fish" (with a small variation of love, funny and attack themes), "Leopard Seal" (with a forth begin and chase theme), "Bob's Led" (for a funny song), "The Hill" (I like it the 0:57 minute), "Fun Food Storm" (a great song, with a small variates themes), "Killer Whales" (a song which demostrate the attack) and "The Alien Ships" (with a small theme of adventure and heroica act).

* : Unreleased track from the Promo ** : DVD rip of a song not in the album *** : A little part of the song is heard at the beginning of the film
"I say "complete" as there are 3 types of music in the film - pop songs, the actual score, and little bits of music that join the two together. It's the latter that isn't featured on either album, but why would it be? As for the score we do have, it's considerably more than heard in the film as a substantial amount has been cut out."
No sign of tracklisting yet? It's weird to have the cover already but not the tracklisting. Although I think the total playback may not exceed 40 minutes (Don't bash me if it does! :-P), still it'd be interesting to know how much music is in there.
The cover isn't really appearling but the music surely is. Haven't seen the movie myself but those who have, told me the movie and the music were great. Here's another thing to look forward to this christmas!
