Album Review

Disney retired what was once Sir Elton John from the office of animated film/adult contemporary hitmaking and replaced him with the yet-to-be-knighted Phil Collins. A squire he may be but, unlike fellow composer Randy Newman, Collins is in no danger of writing intelligent and engaging songs that go largely ignored by the masses, making his Brother Bear score a likely Oscar contender. That's not to say that middle-of-the-road pop confections like "On My Way" and future American Idol standards such as "Look Through My Eyes" are devoid of craftsmanship — they positively radiate Hollywood gloss — it's simply indicative of pop culture's voracious appetite for audio fast food. Here Disney continues to utilize the same musical formula that fueled The Lion King by dipping pop songs into worldbeat dressing. Collins, a talented and accomplished musician, does his best to rise above the restrictions of the cartoon genre by inserting some good old-fashioned Genesis-like prog rock into the mix. The exhilarating "Transformation," which features the heavenly voices of the Bulgarian Women's Choir, channels the superb work done by Hans Zimmer on the aforementioned Lion King soundtrack, and like "The Circle of Life" before it, its serpentine melody features prominently throughout the piece, firmly establishing a sense of place. Tina Turner utilizes the cool mystique that made Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome's "We Don't Need Another Hero" such a gem, in the lush, midtempo hymn "Great Spirits."

OK

I am glad they put the album on itunes but I love "On My Way." Im so disapointed that you have to buy the album to get the song. If that was on there it would be 5 stars.

will not buy it

My kids only like one song. The fact that I need to pay for the entire album defeats the purpose.

This is awesome

This is an awesome family album I would reconmend it my self, I just wish that some of the songs were not album only. I really love I'm on my way.

Phil Collins' ascent to the status of one of the most successful pop and adult contemporary singers of the '80s and beyond was probably as much of a surprise to him as it was to many others. Balding and diminutive, Collins was almost 30 years old when his first solo single, "In the Air Tonight," became a number two hit in his native U.K. (the...
