Product Description

This is a love letter to that special pop song genre cultivated in Disney films (and in some cases, musicals). Instead of the chestnuts from Disney's classic canon, Michael Crawford has chosen a program of contemporary Disney creations (except for the vintage "Baby Mine" from Dumbo), but these are destined to become evergreens in their own right. For starters, the magical combination of melody, atmosphere, and gentle lyrics showcases the Disney folks' uncanny ability to patch together sensational creative teams, drawing on such diverse artists as Alan Menken, Elton John, Randy Newman, and Phil Collins. And Crawford's mellow tenor, with its hint of Peter Pan innocence, is well suited to these expressions of joy and love, which include a memorable duet on "If I Never Knew You" (from Pocahontas) with Sherie René Scott. The production is lush and polished, but the length, a mere 40 minutes, is disappointingly skimpy.

Format: Audio CD
Michael Crawford is the master of the soft, tender song and he demonstrates this "The Disney Album." Any song he sings takes on a new, larger-than-life dimension and he is very canny about selecting songs which are suitable for him. Especially lovely on this album are "Colors of the Wind", "When She Loved Me" and "Baby Mine", the last will bring a lump to your throat. This CD is beautifully produced and a lot of love and care went into it. Incidentally, those who have not heard Michael Crawford sing "When You Wish Upon a Star" should purchase his album, "Songs From Stage and Screen". Hearing him sing this piece is a revelation. "The Disney Album" will be the perfect introduction to Michael Crawford for my six-month old grandson. I know he will become a big fan!! We love you Michael, keep turning out beautiful recordings-I think all the ones you have done so far are magnificent. My one hope is that more songs will be written just for Michael so that the full range and beauty of his voice can be demonstrated.

Michael Crawford has the amazing gifts of continuously reinventing himself and adding new dimentions to every song he sings and role he plays. The Disney Album is no exception! Firstly, he wraps his voice around these pop-rock tunes, which, to say the least, are a bit different from the majority of songs found on most of his albums. Then, not only does he adapt to this new style, but he envelopes these famous songs which we have known for years and re-invents them, making them his own and adding powerful depth and expression to each note. It is truly a very moving experience to hear!

I'd give Michael's singing 10 stars if I could (or how about 20?). It's so good to have a new album from him. The only reason I'm not giving this one five stars is the songs. Some of them follow the pattern of too many modern pop songs -- a catchy melody with a lot of cliched lyrics ("Why can't they understand the way we feel," etc. And I think the words "dry your eyes," or some variation thereof, are sung in about half the songs).
I would give a great deal to hear Michael do another collection of the great Broadway songs. I keep hearing about him singing "I Won't Send Roses" in concerts, and heard him sing -- magnificently -- an all-too-short version of "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face" in the "My Favorite Broadway" concert on PBS. Please, Michael, get some of those (full versions) recorded! Another sacred album would be wonderful too.
All that being said, however, there are some really good songs on here, the best one being "If I Never Knew You." "Baby Mine" is lovely, and "Reflection" has echoes of "Phantom" ("If I wear a mask, I can fool the world") that longtime fans will appreciate! I should add that Michael sings "The Lion King" songs better than Elton John and the "Tarzan" song better than Phil Collins. He DOES. Just listen if you don't believe me!
What really matters is that brilliant voice is going stronger than ever; like the Phantom in the novel, it can "make gems from mud" -- and these songs, cliches aside, really aren't bad enough to be called "mud"! So do get this one as soon as you can. It's well worth it!

Michael Crawford's magnificent voice lends new meaning to these modern Disney classics, and each song is enhanced by the Crawford touch. This is a gentle album which can be appreciated by both adults and children. It is a positive album filled with hope and love.

I have long been a fan of both Disney AND Michael Crawford seperately, so when I heard that his next album would be all Disney music I was very excited. After listening, my excitement was more than justified. The arrangements are lovely and Mr. Crawford's voice only seems to improve with every new album he releases. The songs are mostly from the contemperary movies, such as "When She Loved Me" and "I Will Go Sailing No More", both from Toy Story movies. There is a BEAUTIFUL (and favorite) track from one of the movies from the Golden Age of Disney--"Baby Mine" from Dumbo left tears in my eyes.
This album is for children of ALL ages!

I, too, have always been a fan of both Disney and Michael Crawford. When I heard that Michael Crawford was doing a CD of Disney classics, I had to get it--especially since many of my favorite songs are on it: Reflection, I Know the Truth, You'll be in My Heart, and Your Heart Will Lead You Home. Just as good as--or even better than--the originals. Michael Crawford never fails to delight!

It is certainly interesting to see Michael Crawford continue to build on the legacy of his star making turn as "The Phantom of the Opera" with this collection of songs from Disney movies and musicals. These are mostly contemporary works, the exception being "Baby Mine" from the classic cartoon "Dumbo," which is turned into an exquisite little ballad by Crawford. The same applies to "I Know the Truth" from Broadway's "Aida," which indicates where Crawford's strength is on this collection. My favorite song on this album is "Your Heart Will Lead You Home" from "The Tigger Movie" (I vaguely remember there was such a thing, but have never seen it and never heard the song). Crawford is backed on this one by a children's choir and luscious strings. The featured duet this time around on Crawford's album is "If I Never Knew You" from "Pocahontas," sung with Sherie René Scott (apparently an up and coming young Disney singer). Your appreciation for most of these tracks may well depend on how fondly you recall the original performances. He comes close on "Colors of the Wind," but does not fare as well on "Can You Feel the Love Tonight." Fortunately, "The Disney Album" is really aimed at fans of Crawford, and they will certainly continue to enjoy hearing him expand his repertoire of cover songs.
