Editorial Reviews

Review

This soundtrack to [the] ABC special that celebrated the Muppets' three decades in showbiz is larded with unremarkable renditions of classic Sesame Street tunes.... Only Shawn Colvin's collaboration with Ernie contains the subtle simplicity that is the cornerstone of all great preschool pop. -- Entertainment Weekly

[A]rtists like the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, the Fugees, and Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler deliver tracks that even geezers can enjoy on this selection of songs from TV's Sesame Street.... En Vogue turns up the sassy funk on "I Want a Monster to be My Friend" ... but nothing can top the weirdo experience of hearing Kermit talking nonsense with Jimmy Buffett.... -- People

I bought this CD expecting songs we could sing along to. I had never seen the video. When I got it home, I didn't like it too much, but then it grew on me. Now I can't decide which track I like best, and while I thought the En Vogue song was boring at first, I can tolerate it now. I still don't care for the Celine Dion cut. My daughter took to the CD immediately when she was 11 months old. Her favorite is the Elmo song at the end, but she dances to "Mambo", "I Love Trash", "Zig Zag Dance", and she knows the words to all of the songs and sings along (she's 17 months old now).
I disagree with the review I saw here that this is not intellectually stimulating for a child. It is. It exposes them to many different styles of popular music, all with good messages. I just think that the music is more sophisticated than many people expect on a children's album. The orchestrations are not dumbed-down, and there is a lot for adults and children to listen to. Why do people think that children need watered-down arrangements all the time? A little variety is healthy.

Entertaining on a more adult level. Slightly disapointing to a toddler expecting all Elmo, nothing but Elmo. For an 18 month-old Elmo obsessed The Best of Elmo was more successful.

I'll be 17 next month and I still love this CD! I bought it because Steven Tyler of Aerosmith was on it and it turned out to be an all-around good CD! Now my sister, cousins, and friends all ask to borrow it!

This CD is a mix of original and classic Sesame Street songs performed by popular music acts along with various Sesame Street characters. The music is current with today's pop music scene so Mom and Dad can enjoy along with Baby. You will not want to pull your hair out after the fifteenth replay. This is not a build your baby's brain CD, but rather an innocent, fun escape. Isn't that what music is supposed to be about? If you are looking for an homage to Elmo, this is not it. If you are looking for a break from Barney and Pooh you found it. Our eighteen month old loves it...almost as much as we do!

My kids loved the video so we had to get the CD. It's just as wonderful! They love it and so do we, the songs are fun and don't get annoying after listening to them over and over.

this cd is filled with a combo of new and old song from Sesame Street. now as an adult who grew up on this magical show ,I enjoy being able to sing along with my kids. The songs are updated but still retain their quality. This is a must for adult fans of sesame street with or without kids

Elmopaloza is a 1998 TV/CD special celebrating the legacy of Sesame Street. The name, referencing Lolopaloza, references the then newest rising star in the Sesame Street pantheon, Elmo! The DVD is basically a musical video, and the album contains the audio performances from the TV special. Like so many other preschool projected headed by Sesamee Street, the producers enlisted famed musicians to help bring some versatility to the project and also to appeal to adults as well as children (which they succeed, thankfully).

Once concern about the album/TV special, however, is its lack of Elmo. [As far as Elmo fans go, however, pretty much get the shaft.] For a TV special/soundtrack celebrating Sesame Street with a seeming focus on Elmo and even titled Elmapoloza, there is VERY LITTLE Elmo on the record or the video that was released in conjuction with the soundtrack. He only appears as a major contributor to on three of the eleven songs. The project was actually a 30 year celebration of Sesame Street, and not really focused on Elmo at all, which is quite misleading, to say the least. In the late 1990s is when Elmo first rose to prominence, and the title feels more like a marketing ploy to lure people and also reference Lolopaloza (then a popular musical festive) in that an actual focus on Elmo himself, although to be fair I don't know what else you would call it and still attract the same amount of attention.

It is because of my status as a Parrothead that I even know about this record. In my quest to hear all the commercially available Jimmy Buffett, I discovered this little curio of an album. This is actually the second time Buffett has "collaborated" with The Muppetts (the firest being the Gonzo/Ritzo the Rat "Hey Mr. Space Man" song from 1995 "Kermit Unplugged" record).

As a thirteen year old, I LOVE this CD!! The various artisits who are singing are great, some of my faves, and so very varied. The songs are cute and up beat too- great for little kids but a happy beat for teens and adults with meanings that aren't bad. A good CD for all!
