Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Sandwiched amidst the remarkable string of renascent Disney animation successes that spanned The Little Mermaid and The Lion King, the studio's 1992 adaptation of the venerable Arabian tale won a pair of Oscars for Alan Menken's vibrant instrumental score and his memorable collaboration with lyricist Tim Rice, the infectious song "A Whole New World." This new edition does more than showcase those enduring musical charms, fleshing out the original 21 tracks of songs, underscore and antics of Robin Williams' manic genie with rare demo recordings of a pair of songs that were deleted from the film before its original theatrical release. The wistful yearning of "Proud of Your Boy" and the rambunctious "High Adventure" (both performed by Menken, the latter in a duet with lyricist Howard Ashman) also pay bittersweet homage to original project lyricist Ashman, Menken's Academy Award-winning partner on Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast. --Jerry McCulley

4.0 out of 5 stars Okay, Good, But Where's the Glory for Jafar? November 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The "Aladdin Special Edition Soundtrack" is a great volume restoring the classic Aladdin songs and including two bonus tracks as well. Although there is some unfortunate editing of "Arabian Nights," the CD is otherwise perfect. The songs sound just as good as you remember them if not better. This CD attractively mixes Academy Award winning vocal tracks with a stunning musical score. Included with the CD is a complete track listing and provided lyrics for all songs. Although there a couple errors in the provided lyrics, they are for the most-part spot-on.

This CD includes two excellent bonus tracks, "Proud of Your Boy" and "High Adventure," by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman. I actually find Menken's rendition of "Proud of Your Boy" quite enjoyable. "High Adventure" is spectacular and also gives great insights into characters that were planned for the original version of the movie and then deleted following sweeping changes.

The thing I don't understand about this special edition soundtrack is that it seems like they could have included so much more. My Windows Media Player gives the total length of the CD as 43:50. Now there are several deleted songs that are included on the DVD, including the superb "Humiliate the Boy" and "Why Me," as well as new music videos, so why could these not be included on the special edition soundtrack? I know they want to pedal the DVD, but if this is the special edition, let's get it all out there! Let's get Jafar's deleted songs, let's get the Clay Aiken version of "Proud of Your Boy" and lets get any other demo tracks that might be floating around, if there are any. Let's get the additional versions of Arabian Nights as well.

As for this CD's special edition CD-ROM features, I rather like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars want to know about the extra tracks? November 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The five stars are for the bulk of the CD, which is the same old outstanding "Aladdin" music that was on the original CD. This review is for people wondering if they should invest in this new edition for the two demos included as extra tracks.

The short answer: if you're a big Disney or Alan Menken fan, a definite yes, especially considering the relatively low price tag.

"Proud of You Boy" is a sweet, yearning ballad in the same vein as "Part of Your World" and "Out There." It's decent, but nothing to get wowed over.

"High Adventure," however, immediately became one of my favorite Menken/Ashman songs. It's a romp of a track, and it doesn't have any close analogues in the remainder of Menken's songbook, at least, not that I can think of. The performance itself is a duet between Menken and Ashman, and the two of them are obviously having a blast (and dig those ultra-cheesy synthesizers!). This track, in my opinion, makes the CD a must-buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Soundtrack - - But Where's Clay???!!! October 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD only to hear Clay sing "Proud Of Your Boy" on it. I heard it on AOL, and couldn't wait to have it on CD. It didn't list the singer for POYB, it just said DEMO TRACK. I assumed that Clay would be on it, since his song has been highly publicized.

I pulled up the track number and found only Menken's voice for the song. While Menken has an okay voice, I would have much rather prefered Clay's voice over anybody's!

I love ALADDIN, and am definitely buying the DVD on Tuesday. The soundtrack is great, including reprises and underscoring.

Not having Clay on there will pull Disney's expected income down for this CD, I know it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic...Only 1 Thing Missing.... September 29, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This Special Edition Soundtrack is very good. All of the main hits (Friend Like Me, One Jump Ahead, Prince Ali, and Whole New World...movie and pop version) as well as the instrumentals are here. However, as much as the fact has been publicized, one would think that Clay Aiken's rendition of the previously unheard "Proud of Your Boy" would have been included. However, there is only a demo of Alan Menken doing it. This fact could have been pointed out on the case. The pop version of Whole New World lists Peabo Bryson and Regina Belle. Apparently, Disney thought they would lose money if they listed the performer of Proud of Your Boy. I find it questionable that a video of Clay performing the song is going to be on the DVD. Why not include it on the CD? Still very enjoyable though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful soundtrack! July 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack, a joy to the ear when watching the movie, is just as wonderful to hear on cd. It's fun revisit favorite songs from the film like "Prince Ali," "a Friend Like Me," or "A Whole New World." Then too it's grand to hear the instrumental score to the film on disc. My daughter and I play the cd in the car and it makes our drives so dramatic! I like that she enjoys the more classical music at age 3 in addition to the vocal/character parts she recognizes from the movie. For me as a parent, it's delightful that some of the Disney films like Aladdin have music and characters adults can truly enjoy. A gem - clevel lyrics, beautiful music, fun to listen to and sing along to!

4.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING! MUST HAVE! October 10, 2004
By Lauren
Format:Audio CD
This is truly an amazing soundtrack. The only reason I gave it a 4 is because it was missing some of the newer versions of the songs such as Clay Aiken's Proud of Your Boy. I love this soundtrack of course because of all of the familair songs such as the beautiful, A WHole New World and the catchy Prince Ali, Friend Like Me and One Jump Ahead. And lets not forget Jafar's Prince Ali (Reprise). Arabian Nights is also a great song and has always been one of my favorites. The background is especially good. And lets not forget the rest of the score! My favorites were To Be Free which is extrememly moving and beautiful and then there is the Marketplace music which is VERY catchy and captures the Arabian setting. ANYWAY this is a MUST HAVE soundtrack! Especially if you love Aladdin as much as I do!
