The Meaning of Life Review

by Al Campbell

Unlike most comedy releases, the soundtrack of Monty Python's The Meaning of Life is an appealing audio souvenir that doesn't get stale after listening to it a few times, because of the incredibly catchy and satirical songs from the film, which are all included: "The Meaning of Life," "Galaxy Song," "Accountancy Shanty," "The Not Noel Coward Song," "Christmas in Heaven," and "Every Sperm Is Sacred." Also interspersed with the music are dialogue snippets from the film involving, but not limited to, a wafer-thin mint, the machine that goes PING, a drill sergeant marching up and down the square, six philosophic fish, live organ transplants, and, of course, the meaning of life.
