Barry goes wonderland !

"Barry characterized the soundtrack as having "almost a Gilbert & Sullivan style, but with a contemporary feeling," but fans will recognize no musical identity except for Barry's own. The score, as wonderfully recorded for the soundtrack LP, includes three ballads, large symphonic pieces, and enjoyable settings of classic Caroll nonsense -- with Barry melodies through and through. "

"Alice's Adventures In Wonderland was a British multi-star musical including Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan and Dudley Moore - all of whom are featured in the film's various musical numbers. Yes, this is a song-score. And the songs are richly melodic, beautifully arranged and are a delight to hear. There are no less than three main themes are they're all top-class Barry: ‘Curiouser And Curiouser’, ‘The Me I Never Knew’ and ‘I've Never Been This Far Before’. It's not kiddie music. Each has that You Only Live Twice kind of romantic maturity. Each has that The Appointment sincerity. There are a handful of enjoyable secondary songs and a number of great instrumental numbers including ‘The Royal Procession’, an addictive march with that distinctive Barry strings-and-brass sound cleverly decorated by the mandolin. Imaginative? You bet. Fresh sounding? Sure. Rich? Immensely."
