AllMusic Review by

Composer John Powell (How to Train Your Dragon, Happy Feet) is no stranger when it comes to grafting quality scores onto animated films, so his involvement with a big-screen animated rendition of Dr. Seuss' The Lorax should come as no surprise. Powell's deft blend of old-school orchestral grandeur and modern bombast yields some splendid fruit here, channeling the whimsy of Randy Newman, the joy of Alan Silvestri, and the mad fancy of Danny Elfman without ever breaking a sweat.
