Elton John doesn't seem like a natural choice to write for a Disney musical, but he rose to the task on The Lion King, transcending his usual penchant for the softest of soft rock. Sir Elton's collaboration with Tim Rice (former writing partner of Andrew Lloyd Webber) helps connect the soundtrack to the theatrical lineage of all Disney musicals--so much so that, like Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King was eventually adapted for Broadway. Undistinguished songs like "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" are far outnumbered by stirring, stately tunes that lent the film so much of its sense of pageant and play. --John Sanchez

As an owner of the Special Edition Lion King DVD, I was at first quite curious to see that there was a Special Edition Lion King CD as well as I couldn't imagine what they would have put on here to make it "Special". But besides a fancy package and the inclusion of the over hyped, but still catchy, "Morning Report" song that is found within said special edition DVD there is really very little to make this a 'Special Edition' CD. Yes they have a remix of "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" by the writer of the song and famous musician Elton John, Which isn't bad, but still is this enough to warrant a whole new CD that has exactly what the original soundtrack has on it besides? I would have to say both yes and no.

A yes, if you never bought the original soundtrack and just got into the music and movie with the re-release of the DVD. It's a great buy as you get the new song you will have heard in the DVD of the movie that goes with this, as well as all the original iconic soundtrack songs.

A no, if you like millions of people own the original soundtrack and aren't that crazy about a very short song of the "Morning Report" and can't get all excited about a CD having 3 versions of the same exact song on it, just slightly differing.

It still is a great overall soundtrack though. It has "Circle of Life", "I Can't Wait to Be King" "Hakuna Matata" and all the other songs you will remember from the movie. It has the instrumentals and the Elton John versions of the main songs from the movie. The only special thing though is the addition of two songs and one of them being short and not that fulfilling.

So the choice is yours. If you already own this it isn't worth buying again.

My father bought me the initial edition of this soundtrack when I was an 8-year-old pupil, and I was attracted by it, then I listened to it before I went to bed every night. After The Lion King's platinum edition series have been published, I bought the DVD, and also collected this special edition soundtrack. In fact, the songs in this special edition soundtrack are not very different from the ones in the initial, except the new song "The Morning Report". But I think this special edition soundtrack is really collectable to Lion King fans.

Actually, till today, I can't say which song is the theme song of this movie, "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" or "Circle of Life"? They're both so good and very famous, they have wonderful melody and excellent backgroud music. "Circle of Life" has faithful and beautiful lyric that tell us the endlessness and strength of life. "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" has romantic lyric, and the romantic atmosphere often attract our attention and will always be remembered by everyone. When I was young, the song "I Just Can't Wait to Be King" was the most impressive and attractive to me. Maybe it was because that I was at the age of Simba and had the emotions and thoughts that Simba had. Besides, the tune and vocals of this song are great and funny. "Be Prepare" is a good song too, it expressed the absolute careerism of Scar, the rhythm and musical instruments that used are good and suitable. "Hakuna Matata" is a very humorous and comical song, it makes me feels that leading a problem-free life is wonderful. The new song "The Morning Report" is funny, but I think Simba's dubber in this song was not very good, the voice was too different from the initial dubber's of Simba. The scores are so glorious, sometimes I think they feel like symphony!

Lion King is a great movie with great music! First there's the full-of-spirit "Circle of Life", performed by the wonderful Carmen Twillie and Lebo M., and another version performed by Elton John, as well. Then there's the lively "I Just Can't Wait To Be King", performed by Jason Weaver, Rowan Atkinson as Zazu and Laura Williams as Nala. "Be Prepared" is the song that warns us about Simba's evil uncle's plans of becoming king. "Hakuna Matata" will always be a classic,with Timon and Pumbaa telling about how to live a worry-free life. And the lovely "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" as a perfect love song, also performed beautifully by Elton John. It's a great soundtrack for fans of the movie or beautiful music!

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on March 16, 2006
Format: Audio CD
( im not a kid, i just don't want to give my email )

I have read probably every review on this soundtrack and on the other lion king soundtrack, and i see everyone talking about the songs like "cant wait to be king","can you feel the love tonight" and all those other songs with lyrics and how good they are blah blah blah.

I think the true spirit and grace of this album comes COMPLETELY from mista Hans Zimmer.

Only 4 tracks!!!??? i think thats a crime, and he should've said something. I own almost every one of his soundtracks and the lion kings is one of (if not THE best) soundtrack he's made. There was just to little. I think they should have made a completely seperate soundtrack for JUST HIS music, and the music from the EXPANDED scores, which i thought was screwed up becuase i REALLY like the music when simba and scar fought, and now i can't get it. Turst me, if he put ALL his songs on one album, it would be quite a decent size soundtrack and worth EVERY penny from every lion king fan out there. Zimmer was underated on this one, simple as that. So for all you out there who listen to nothing but the Elton John stuff etc.m instead try listening to tracks:

6. This Land, 8. Under the Stars,...and

YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST listen to the End of 9.King of Pride Rock

fast forward to 4:18 into the song for (in my opinion) the most powerful and beatiful part of the WHOLE album.

You'll remeber the scene from the movie INSTANTLY, trust me ;)

Listen to those tracks, and you'll understand Zimmer's true gift of expression through the sound of music.

( i would give ZIMMER'S songs 1000/5 stars if i could :P )
