The best thing about That's So Raven Too!
may be that it's not really so Raven after all. Instead of this being an all-Ms.-Symone-all-the-time affair--something only dyed-in-the-wool Raven-ites, if such a tribe exists, could handle--we get the same pleasant dice-up the original disc doled out. That means a pinch of Jesse McCartney ("She's No You," remixed), a dash of Aretha Franklin ("Respect"), and a drizzle of the usual Disney suspects, including the enduringly appealing Aly & AJ ("Walking on Sunshine"), Orlando Brown ("Will it Go Round in Circles"), and B5 (who get busy, and get the nod for concocting a surprisingly good track, with "Let's Groove"). Again, Raven's not going to win critical raves for her slicker-than-vinyl vocal stylings here--they're too canned for that. But by ending with the "B.F.F. Mix" of "Some Call It Magic," the former Cosby kid ratchets up the go-girl, friends-to-the-end charm. And what could be more Raven than that? --Tammy La Gorce
