The garish album cover of this compilation of songs is good enough a reason to earn a place on your shelves. To have Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter smiling at you with his burnt orange hair? You’ve got yourself the best tea party partner anyone can ask for, and the 16 songs inspired by visionary director Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland are all ready to blast your afternoon away.

Kicking off the 58 minute disc is Avril Lavigne’s “Alice”, which adds a touch of ruggedness to the girly fairytale version we are familiar with. You can almost imagine a teenage girl running through the woods with a tattered and torn dress, all the while being independent about protecting herself from the forces of evil – you go, girl! “The Poison” performed by American rock band The All American Rejects adds a bit of edginess to the initially nice and friendly song. “The Technicolour Phase” featuring American synthpop project Owl City is a trippy and psychedelic tune which will hypnotise your senses.

The angst comes in American band Shinedown’s “Her Name is Alice” – this is also where you realise that this is no family friendly album, with wild and colourful musical styles brought to you by other artistes like Metro Station, Robert Smith and Plain White T’s. These headbanging songs are exactly what you need on a frustrating day when you wish you can just run away, fall into a rabbit hole and visit a mythical place called Wonderland where anything is possible.

Interestingly, Kerli’s whimsically energetic techno tune “Tea Party” is placed alongside Franz Ferdinand’s “The Lobster Quadrille”, which soothes things down with a dark and creepy melody. These two songs strangley complement each other, and is reminiscent of Burton’s arrestingly unique visuals.

Kudos goes the soundtrack producers who have managed to gather these artistes to come up with such inspired titles to echo the film’s main themes. Where else are you going to get songs with titles like “Always Running Out of Time”, “Fell Down a Hole” and “White Rabbit” in one compilation? Even if it’s a marketing ploy, we are buying it. Imagining sipping tea with The Mad Hatter, while listening to this varied collection of songs is definitely worth it.
