Excellent Collection For Youngsters.....And Their Parents!,
This review is from: Hannah Montana (Audio CD)
Yep, it's hard to believe that a man of thirty-one years is writing a review of the "Hannah Montana" soundtrack but it's true. My daughter, age six, has always enjoyed the TV series that this soundtrack was put out in support of. She naturally wanted to get this disc and did so for her birthday a little over a month ago. Since then, I can't tell you how many times I've been subjected to my daughter singing many of the songs on this album. It is pure bubblegum pop. It's not too offensive nor is it too risque for the younger crowd. It's also easily digestable for parents of children enthralled with Miley Cyrus' portrayal of Montana. Despite being rather fluffy lyric-wise, these songs still manage to be better that pretty much all of today's reigning pop princesses. Cyrus' vocals are much better than the likes of Ashlee Simpson and Avril Lavigne. She also seems like an altogether nicer person than either of them. I've always respected her father, who real fans of country music know spent many, many years trying to make it before hitting with "Achy Breaky Heart." The guy isn't as cheesy as you'd think, and is actually a truer country artist than most of today's mainstream stars like Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney. It appears that he and his wife are taking the right steps to prevent their daughter from turning into a teenage burn-out queen like Britney Spears or so many other teen stars who couldn't handle being on top.
Highlights of the album include the show's theme, "Best Of Both Worlds," "Who Said," and "This Is The Life." A few of the songs are from other artists and other than the Click Five's "Pop Princess," they are a definite step down from the pop quality of Cyrus' tracks.
Overall, I'd have to say that any person who really enjoys pop music will find that this is one of the better albums out there. It also looks as if many of its songs will have a longer shelf life than many other pop songs that are currently out there. Definitely buy this if you have a daughter between the ages of six and twelve. It's great music for them to listen to.
I highly recommend this album.

You're right about Miley Cyrus.I also like Miley & her TV Show is Hannah Montana even though I'm 23.She is appropriate for young kids & that was a great choice a CD you gave you daughter.I hope Miley Cyrus older like Britney Spears Lindsay that she won't wear alot revealing clothes & end up getting into alot of trouble like going to jail.
