Editorial Reviews

The follow-up to her successful Lullaby release, this delightfully playful album of charming originals and timeless sing-along favorites from multi-platinum singer-songwriter Jewel was fondly made to be enjoyed by adults and children alike.

"The Merry Goes 'Round" is Jewel's second children's album (the first was 2009's "Lullaby") and is part of the Fisher-Price Music Series. It's fitting that she is releasing this album just weeks after her first child, son Kase Townes was born. She said that she wrote the songs with lessons she'd like her son to learn in mind. Jewel's voice is so sweet and beautiful it's perfect for children's songs. Her acoustic guitar sounds awesome (as always) and compliments her voice beautifully. Comprised of both original songs and covers of children's classics, Jewel proves yet again that she is versatile and talented in whatever genre she chooses to sing. A few highlights include "Just Like Penguins Do," a beautiful song with a honky tonk vibe. I love "Oh! Susanna," a classic children's song that sounds wonderful with Jewel's country-folk touches. I literally got goose bumps when I listened to "She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain." Her voice is so pure and elegant I couldn't help being touched by her singing. I realize long time fans of hers might want her to return to her "Pieces of You" days, but I really love this album. Babies, toddlers, children, and even adults will be able to appreciate these songs. Highly recommended!

Though not a Jewel fan, I was gifted her lullaby album and I ended up really liking it. I bought this one to expand the CD collection for when we are driving. Overall, I think the lullaby album is superior, but this one is definitely better than some of the kids' music out there.

Pros:
There are lots of different music styles, from the Andrews Sisters-esque Supermarket Song, to the good ol' 'tellin' a story' style of Bucky the Bull, to the bluesy Snooze Button Blues, to the older school country Jolene-esque of Give me The Rainbow (I think...I could be wrong...but one of the songs on there is in that style!)

The familiar songs are done in a new and innovative way, just like on her lullaby album. 'Oh, Susanna' and 'She'll be Coming Around the Mountain' are miles above the versions done on other kids' albums.

Cons:

-I think this skews a little more feminine, and can see it appealing to more girls than boys once they get past the toddler stage. Right now, my son is 19 months so it's not much of an issue, and I'm sure there will be some songs that are gonna be favorites no matter what. But overall the songs like Sarah Swan Sleepy Head and My Favorite Things I can definitely see being preferred by girls.

-The existence of "Just Like Penguins Do"- first off, the placement on the disc at #3 is weird. It's a very slow, very mellow song and it's sandwiched between the fun and upbeat 'Supermarket Song' and 'Bucky the Bull.' Not a huge deal if you listen on random, but I kind of feel like the order of songs on an album should be intentional. This would've been good near the end after the kid dances and has fun and is ready for a nap.

I can freely admit that I love this album. The original songs are upbeat and singable with catchy tunes and clever lyrics. This is the type of children's music that's enjoyable for both children and adults. Highly recommended!

This is only the second CD I bought for my children. I find that most of the music out there is either cheesy (think Barney) or unpleasant to the ears. I will not get sick of hearing these songs 100 times in a row. The tunes are catchy and up beat. My toddler, who is addicted to TV, didn't mind being torn away from her shows. She started to dance and laugh! (No melt down from turning the TV off. And before you start judging and reciting about the effects of TV on a child's brain, remember this is a review about a music CD.) A true winner. Love the original songs with the folksy beat.

As a fan of rock/punk/reggae/metal, I was extremely hesitant to play this CD for my son. I was afraid he would love it and I would be stuck listening to it, trying not to tear my ears off. Alas, I underestimated Jewel's musical talent as both an artist and a songwriter. If you're looking to introduce your child to different genres in one fell swoop, this is definitely the right album. She has country, folk, blues, classic singer/songwriter love songs, even some swingy-type sounds. It's great. Absolutely entertaining and, because of the diversity, you can listen to it regularly.

The entire CD is awesome. Tons of fun songs, with a great mix of upbeat songs and slower ones. Our daughter's favorite song is "Favorite Things". All the lyrics are great and age appropriate and I wish she would make another CD like this one!! Her voice is beautiful and well suited for fun and soothing children's songs. Love, love, love it.

My 21 month old daughter received this as a gift. First time we listened to it, I enjoyed it. Second time we listened to it, I fell in love with it. The songs are all varied, some you know, some are new. They reflect different genres of music with some sounding country, some folkie (as you'd expect from Jewel), some jazzy, others slow and rhythmic with beautiful melodies, some fast paced and fun. There's something here for everyone and what I love most is that my daughter can grow into these songs and enjoy them in different ways as she matures.

The lyrics are well written and fun to listen to. The only song I'm not fond of is the Green Grass one as I know a different version and like the original lyrics better. Other than that, I have absolutely no complaints and was so pleasantly surprised by this album.

If you like Jewel and you have kids, you'll love this. It's one of those albums I can listen to all day long and not get tired of. The person who left a one star review was really off base here. Do you think an album released by Fisher Price is geared for adults? It's enjoyable for kids and their parents. Have some reasonable expectations.

Thanks for a wonderful album, Jewel. Best to you and yours! Being a parent is truly the best gift one can have. I highly recommend her lullaby album called "Jewel Lullaby". Her version of Simple Gifts is one of my favorites.
