13 Songs, 46 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

With its banging electro beats and knob-twiddling, Auto-Tuned wizardry, it might take a few spins to realize that the soundtrack to 2012's animated adaptation of The Lorax is tailored for kids. Composer John Powell (who received an Academy Award nomination for his score to How to Train Your Dragon) penned a clutch of riotous, sophisticated pop songs that are conveyed by an exuberant troupe of top-notch comic actors—a blessing for parents who are weary of cutesy, simplistic songs for their little ones.
