Over The Hedge - Music From The Motion Picture
by Various Artists
Epic/Sony Music Soundtrax
Not to be confused with that of the 1979 cult epic Over the Edge, this film's soundtrack contains no Cheap Trick nor any Ramones. But it does manage to cleverly juxtapose the organic orchestral scores of Rupert Gregson-Williams with the triumphant piano-rock of Ben Folds. Gregson-Williams' cinematic compositions recall Danny Elfman's playful works, while the songs of Folds may make you wonder why you never got into early works by Billy Joel and Joe Jackson.
