Reasons to buy THE GREEN ALBUM:

- You grew up watching THE MUPPET SHOW and you have a bit of a nostalgic streak.

- You smiled and laughed throughout the preview to the forthcoming movie THE MUPPETS.

- You've always felt that Muppets instantly make everything more fun.

- You own anything with a Muppet on it.

- You are already a fan of any of the bands that make an appearance on THE GREEN ALBUM.

- You are open minded enough to listen to a few hipster/indie rock style interpretations of your childhood memories.

- You are traditional enough to appreciate that most of these songs are played relatively straight.

- You think you can forgive OK GO for possibly effing up the opening track by making it too weird.

- You like the idea of a compilation/tribute album of cover songs from a thirty-five year old puppet show being able to stand on its own as an album - only a few songs are chained to The Muppet Show here, the others could make it on their own in the world if they wanted to.

- You're still looking for "the rainbow connection" - the lovers, the dreamers, Kermit, and you...or maybe you've found it, in which case you might also be picking up a copy of the new Barbra Streisand album that was released today.

This is a fun little collection of cover songs, but ultimately there was only one song on the album that I felt was comparable in quality to the original. Weezer re-imagines Rainbow Connection as a duet, which ends up working pretty well. The rest of the songs just don't have the same magic or energy as the original Muppet versions. I don't know if that speaks poorly of the bands involved or if it's just a testament to the care that went into the movies. There were also a few songs that I really wish were included, most notably "Can You Picture That?" from The Muppet Movie.

The Green Album is definitely worth a listen, but not necessarily a full-price purchase.

I'm not going to do a music review, I'm just going to say that owning this album makes me happy. Listening to this album makes me happy. It's silly and wonderful and it makes me just...you guessed it... happy. If you're one of the many who grew up watching the Muppet Show, you will enjoy these new takes on old childhood classics.

Caring whether your kids have "good" (read: "your") taste in music, books, and movies is a foolish thing to do, so it means something that the day that my daughter said she really didn't like The Muppet Movie was one of the very few times when I actually, well, cared. It's a great movie, a little cheesy at points maybe, but funny and tender, one of the great movie musicals of the past half-century. (Seriously -- there are very few post-1960s musical on the AFI list of the Greatest Movie Musicals, and even fewer created specifically for the screen.)

Why do I relate the story? Well, more so than most albums reviewed here, it's my opinion, not that of kids, which matters here, because Muppets: The Green Album isn't really a kids music album. The album is a collection of 12 Muppet-related songs, drawn mostly heavily from The Muppet Movie or from songs heard on The Muppet Show. Much like Disney's collections of covers from their own stable of American tunes, Disneymania, Disney's approach here is to get popular (critically or otherwise) artists to tackle the Jim Henson-related songs. The fact that some of these artists weren't yet born when The Muppet Show went off network television doesn't seem to have hurt their recruiting efforts. (The fact that the rest of 'em were kids when the show was still on probably helped tremendously.)

And as is the case with any such collection, Disney or otherwise, this album succeeds or fails based on how good the songs are and whether the artists bring anything new to them (or, if they ruin their charm).

Each song is a fun visit to my childhood! Some songs I didn't even remember, but upon looking them up on youtube, quickly remembered them, and enjoyed the new versions right away. Some songs, like the Wishing Song (sung by Gonzo on The Muppet Show) are very rare and hard to find originals of. I do wish they had listed where each song was originally from. I had to do a lot of personal searching to find this out for myself. For those wondering:

1. Muppet Show Theme Song (Personally? The music video version of this song is better.)
2. Rainbow Connection (The Muppet Movie, Kermit)
3. Mahna Mahna (The Muppet Show, various cast)
4. Movin' Right Along (The Muppet Movie, Kermit and Fozzie)
5. Our World (Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas, various cast)
6. Halfway Down The Stairs (The Muppet Show, Kermit's nephew Robin)
7. Mr. Bassman (The Muppet Show, Dr. Teeth and Scooter)
8. Wishing Song (The Muppet Show, Gonzo, rare find!)
9. Night Life (The Great Muppet Caper, Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem)
10. Bein' Green (Various venues, Kermit)
11. I Hope That Something Better Comes Along(The Muppet Movie, Kermit and Rolfe)
12. I'm Going To Go Back There Someday (The Muppet Movie, Gonzo)

Hope this list helps the curious! :)
