Format: Audio CD
As a 40-something adult, this is the kind of movie that would usually send me running from the room. Of course, things change if you have a target-aged young daughter who comes home and tells you that her friends told her this movie is a MUST WATCH!! All right, so with much trepidation I agreed to sit and watch this with my daughter.

And what do you know? It turns out to be charming. No, there are no surprises here (except maybe that it IS charming and not just treacly pap, as are so many for-kids morality movies). Someone had the clever idea of making a musical for kids--a series of music videos tethered by a thin plot, really--and it works. I have to admit that I was fully won over when the basketball practice turned into a music number (Get'cha Head in the Game), with the stock sounds of basketball (squeeky shoes, etc.) cleverly mixed into the song.

There are a number of pretty good songs/videos in the movie, though my favorite is the Breaking Free duet that basically serves as the climax.

Much has been made about the question of whether the actors who sing these songs are really all that musically talented. It's hard to say without seeing them perform live, but most of these songs have clearly been enhanced by an autotuner, which suggests these may be actors with very modest singing ability (typical of the modern Disney stable, think Hilary Duff, Christy Carlson Romano, etc.) rather than singers who can also act.

But who cares? The songs are catchy and worthwhile within the context of the film and they sound fine and in-tune and catchy on the soundtrack album. I don't expect that these actors will be taking the production on the road anytime soon, so it really is irrelevant what studio trickery might have been used to get the songs to their final state. This album is a fine sourvenir of the movie, and is eminently listenable (and often a lot more than that).

I am an avid Disney Channel watcher and I tend to watch some of the new DCOMs that come out. Most of them are eh, so-so and rather predictable. However, High School Musical "bops to the top!" All of the actors are magnificent and the songs vary in the style. There are some ballads, hip-hop, "show tune" style, and so much more. I also think the dancing is AWESOME!!!!

The acting is great. Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Vanessa Anne Hudgens, and Zac Efron all star in this musical. And they all sing their own songs (pre recorded yes, but still great!!!!). Their dancing is wonderful as well. Kenny Ortega directed AND choreographed the movie.

So, what you need to do is watch the movie on Disney and buy the soundtrack...I have listened to it several times now and have yet to get tired of it. It's a worth while purchase.

Many people refuse to even take a glance at this movie and soundtrack because they hear that it's a cheesy musical. It's a shame that they are missing out on something great just because they may think that it's cool to ignore it. In some cases, they just hands down don't like it, but i can guarantee you that most people just won't give it a chance or are too embarrassed to admit it. But they're entitled to their own opinions, so I'll leave it be.

I am entitled to my own as well, and I'm here to say that this movie and soundtrack are very impressive. The cliche moral of the movie (to break free from what you're used to & to follow your dreams) seemed to somehow be a novel concept because it was taught with songs and music, but maybe it was just me. Kids can really relate to this movie and the humor in the movie was not that of regular Disney movies. It was actually funny in a way that didn't involve pratfalls or forced laughter. Old Disney movies were great, but they started to get pretty bad. I'm a sucker for musicals, so I watched this movie. I'm proud to say that High School Musical gave me hope for a better future in Disney Movies.

This soundtrack will bring cheer and a sense of comfort to most people who listen to it. The young voices of Zac Efron, Vanessa Anne Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, and Lucas Grabeel are fantastic and compliment each other very well. The songs that were written are more than appropriate for the movie and the catchy beats make you want to listen to them again and again.

I felt the need to write this review because people seem to be so harsh on everything Disney related. Before you get all offensive, just remember that we are all entitled to our own opinion and I chose to acknowledge some of your harsh ones, but still accepted them. This soundtrack is very good, and I highly recommend it.

What do you get when you get a great cast emsemble to sing in this Disney Channel movie? You get something amazing! Here's the main cast: Summerland's Zac Efron as Troy, Thunderbirds' Vanessa Anne Hughes as Gabriella, Catch That Kid and Flight 29 Down's Corbin Bleu as Troy's best friend, Chad, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody's Ashley Tisdale as Sharpay, and some guy from Halloweentown High as Sharpay's brother, Ryan. These kids can sing! If you love the soundtrack, then wait 'til you see the movie! ROCK ON!

Format: Audio CD
1. Troy and Gabriella - Start of Something New (5/5) This song is amazing. They can sing great and the music just highlights their beautiful voices amazingly.

2. Troy - Get'cha Head In The Game (3/5) Eh, it was okay. I'm not much of a fan of rap. But it was pretty good.

3. Ryan and Sharpay - What I've Been Looking For (5/5) This was the best song on the entire CD! The song is too amazing for words!

4. Troy and Gabriella - What I've Been Looking For Reprise (4/5) I like it, but I liked it better when it was faster like with Ryan and Sharpay's version.

5. Cast - Stick To The Status Quo (5/5) Excellent song! I especially liked Sharpay's part in the song.

6. Gabriella - When There Was Me And You (5/5) This girl can sing! She is probably the second best singer on this CD (after Ashley Tisdale, Sharpay).

7. Ryan and Sharpay - Bop To The Top (5/5) Ai, ai, ai! This song was awesome! I loved the fact that a part of it was in Spanish. This duo of Lucas Gabreel and Ashley Tisdale can sing!

8. Troy and Gabriella - Breaking Free (5/5) This was an amazing song! Nothing else to say!

9. Cast - We're All In This Together (5/5) I correct myself on my comment from track three (What I've Been Looking For). THIS is the best song on the CD! I love how the entire cast (including extras) come together to make the perfect song!

10. Troy, Gabriella, Ryan, and Sharpay - I Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You (5/5) The song is amazing. I wish it were in the film! Lucas Gabreel (Ryan) did spectacular in this song!

11. B5 - Get'cha Head In The Game (4/5) This one was a little better than the first. But it wasn't perfect. But B5 is an amazing group.

12. Start Of Something New Karaoke (4/5) I liked it instrumental, but there were parts of it where it needed vocals.

13. Breaking Free Karaoke (5/5) This was amazing instrumental!
