5.0 out of 5 stars Works with iPod March 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
To all those who might hesitate to buy this wonderful CD, of one of the greatest Disney movies ever, because of a review here on Amazon that the CD could not be downloaded to the iPod. This is NOT true. I got my CD yesterday and downloaded it directly onto my iPod without any problems. Now I can hear the gorgeous music of "The little Mermaid" wherever I want!!! Don't hesitate to buy this CD, the songs are great and a must for every fan of Disney movies and this in particular. I, also had been concerned about buying this CD, becuse this review said it would not work with the iPod. But I did buy it then and it DOES work !!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Music - Another Excellent Disney Soundtrack February 23, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Walt Disney and, in particular, the Disney Studios, have given us some of the most wonderful, timeless and memorable movies, cartoons and music for over 70 years and this is no exception.

I'm not a music critic, I'm just a person who appreciates and loves music with passion and heart. The songs, such as "Part of Your World" and "Under the Sea" are just as great as anything from the "classic era" and the score, although a shame that many people don't have enough interest to listen to it, is simply beautiful. "The Little Mermaid" is a soundtrack worth having in your cd collection and will stand the test of time, right alongside of "Snow White", "Fantasia", "Cinderella", "The Lion King", and all the other wonderful Disney masterpieces.

(Note to Arleta J. Bagchi "Siam": Leaving a review is simply giving an opinion of a particular recording/movie, etc...The fact that you're not able to download it onto a silly ipod isn't relevant to this feature!!

5.0 out of 5 stars JUST like the movie! October 24, 2006
By Hannah
Format:Audio CD
Listening to this in it's entirety is almost as great as watching the movie. My daughter gets happy when she hears the first couple of notes and runs to the TV thinking the movie is on. I was really planning on buying the original CD that was released in 1988 because there were not many reviews for this new release but I'm so glad I changed my mind. This CD sounds great and is truely a score of the movie. Every song is there. If you end up not liking the second CD, doesn't matter because the 1st cd is worth your money already, I didn't mind the 2nd cd but that's not why I purchased the set anyway. made no difference to me, we just keep the first one on repeat and love every minute of it.

Format:Audio CD
Just as how I expected, this music collection has been published. Because after the special edition of a movie had been published, its soundtrack CD would come along as well. At the beginning, I expected that this CD must be just like other special edition CDs, having recorded all songs from the movie but without scores. But this one is so different, it's really complete.

Disc 1, I can say that, is the soundtrack of "The Little Mermaid". All the songs and scores which are familiar to us are in this disc. It a great difference to any other special edition CDs, all the songs and scores were recorded completely. It's a good chance to those people who haven't collected the initial edition of the soundtrack(The initial edition's cover was more pretty than this one though). It's really worth collecting to no matter who have or not got the initial edition soundtrack CD.

Well, disc 2 is good too. There're songs from the movie sung by other singers. If you have listened to the album "Disney Mania", the 3rd track, "Part of Your World" by Jessica Simpson, won't be unfamiliar to you. It's really the most beautiful version of all versions(except the one in the movie of course) of this song, it impressed me so much. I was a little surprised that "Poor Unfortunate Souls" can be sung in that way, by young men! The tune and style have been changed a lot, then give me very very different feeling. Well, the feeling is not bad! ^^ "Kiss the Girl" and "Under the Sea" were sung by girls, they're very lively though, not so good as the versions in "Disney Mania". However, the tracks in disc 2 are wonderful too. Oh, there're music videos in this disc!

I think this edition of special soundtrack is the best one ever, than any other. The special edition CDs of "Aladdin" and "The Lion King-2: Simba's Pride" made me not very satisfied with them. But this one is quite good in my opinion, it's a great part of my Little Mermaid collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it then. Loved it now. April 10, 2007
By C. Lorz
Format:Audio CD
Little Mermaid was the first video I ever owned myself. Loved it from the first day I saw it. I don't hold the same view as I did as a child but it's still a wonderful story. And the music is just plain fun. The best part of this special edition is Ashley Tisdale's rendition of Kiss The Girl. Let me start by saying I have issues about Disney's need to turn every actor into a singer and every singer into an actor and the promote them to the ends of the earth. And it's not so much Ashley Tisdale - though she's very talented - that makes me love this version of the song. Whoever revised the arrangement is who I'd like to really thank. I love every thing about how this version was put together. Upbeat. Fun. Totally "sqeeable". But then I'm a hopeless romantic.

5.0 out of 5 stars ASTOUNDING ORCHESTRAL SCORE REFLECTS MENKEN'S GENIUS! November 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
From the moment the Prince's ship sails into the horizon, you get instantly captivated by this breath-taking score. And right throughout the movie the music enthralls you. One of the last collaborative efforts of Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, this magical soundtrack truly earns the title of a masterpiece.
The songs are excellent and vary from soothing ballads to beautifully styled Caribbean tunes. "Part of Your world" is unique; its haunting melody and Jodi Benson's mesmerizing voice (just listen to Ariel vocalizing) making it the best slow ballad ever heard on the silver screen. Samuel E. Wright's Caribbean vocals are the main highlights, with "Kiss the Girl" being a very tuneful, salsa number that has you swaying to its melody. "Les Poissons" in Rene Auberjonois' voice simply makes you giggle with laughter and Pat Carroll's "Poor unfortunate Souls" is a good villain song. "Under The Sea" truly is THE song of the movie, its Oscar-winning, foot tapping and humorous appeal making you want to listen to it over and over again.
The score, which earned Menken his first Academy Award, is outstanding and is easily one of the best scores in movie history. Later Menken efforts (like Aladdin and more recently Hercules) lack the magical charm so evidently present in The Little Mermaid.
"The Jig", "The Storm" and "Tour of the Kingdom" are definitely the finest sequences; the piano, strings, clarinet and drums conglomerate to produce a deeply invoking and overwhelming effect. Menken masterfully utilizes a host of instruments to eminently bring out the joyful, tense and melancholy atmospheres. "Destruction of the Grotto" and "Wedding Announcement" are such fine illustrations of the tense moments.
