Without so much as a squeak from the Mickey Mouse Club in decades, Disney had to rally its devotees one way or another, and who better to whip them into a frenzy than the artists gathered here? Disneymania delivers a clutch of bubblegum confections bent on causing more 'tween drooling than a trip to the orthodontist. Highlights on a collection that only occasionally dips into Disney's pre-1980s catalog include the A-Teens' frothy "Under the Sea," 'N Sync's polished "When You Wish upon a Star," Jump 5's fuel-injected "Beauty and the Beast," and the Baha Men's bouncy "Hakuna Matata." Disney purists may pout over these remakes--it's tough to argue with Phil Collins's "You'll Be in My Heart" or Elton John's "I Just Can't Wait to Be King"--but improving on classics wasn't the point. Better to think of Disneymania as a record-length pep rally go with the feel-good flow. --Tammy La Gorce

At first, I was disappointed with these new versions of classic Disney songs, but the more I've listened to it, the more I've come to enjoy it. Even the destruction of the beautiful love ballad Beauty and the Beast can be sung with despite the faster pace. Though I'm not an Aaron Carter fanatic, I just can't wait to be king is pretty similar to Elton John's pop version and still has that "oldies sound" that made me love the original version so much. Hilary Duff's Tiki Room is my favorite on the disc. All in all, this isn't a bad set of songs. For the most part, the artists have stuck to the original melodies while at the same time adding their own styles to the mix. Some tunes will grind on the ears of true Disney music enthusiasts, but I don't regret buying the CD.

I'm gonna ignore the fact that we know this was another gimmick for Disney to suck up our money. Fine, so be it! This album is worth every penny I paid! :) Combining Classic Disney songs with hot artists was pure genious.
SOMEDAY MY PRINCE WILL COME (Anastacia)--0/5 Definitely my least favorite song on the album. A terrible choice to start with. She butchered a beautiful classic song. The melody is barely even recognizeable!
UNDER THE SEA (A*Teens)--5/5 The A-Teens rock, and this song rocks: you put them together, and you get an AWESOME song! I could listen to this one over and over!
YOU'LL BE IN MY HEART (Usher)--3/5 This is okay. Usher has a great voice, but this song is just not the same without Phil Collins singing it...not even close.
WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR (N'Sync)--5/5 Absolutely beautiful! N'Sync shows off their vocal harmony prowess and turns a Disney anthem into gorgeous a capella.
COLORS OF THE WIND (Ashanti & Lil' Sis Shi Shi)--3/5 If any voices were supposed to sing this song, Ashanti and Lil' Sis were the ones. It's one of my less favorite songs, but done beautifully anyway.
I WAN'NA BE LIKE YOU (Smash Mouth)--5/5 In top competition for the best song on the album. This song has never sounded so funky and fun--definitely a SWEET track!
PART OF YOUR WORLD (Jessica Simpson)--4/5 Jessica has an amazing voice, but it's a little too grown-up for this song. Still, she blows the competition out of the water!
I JUST CAN'T WAIT TO BE KING (Aaron Carter)--4/5 I love Aaron, and I love this song. It somewhat lacks the fun & punch of the movie version, but it's fun to listen to.
CAN YOU FEEL THE LOVE TONIGHT (S Club)--3/5 I'm somehow missing the "love" in this song. It's very pretty, but I don't think S Club was made for such a mellow song.

I was a bit hestiant before buying the CD, I liked the songs, but would I like the different interpations of the songs?
So, I bought it and was rather impressed; I liked most of the songs on here! It's also quite fun to listen to, though I was disappointed by some.

1. Some Day My Prince Will Come- I like Anatacia's voice. First time I've heard her sing, nice! I don't listen to the song much though.-3/5

2. Under the Sea- Oh, this one's so catchy it's not even funny! I have it stuck in my head now! 5/5

3. You'll Be in my Heart- I like this version of the song. I like Phil Collin's original and Usher made it just a good!-5/5

4. When You Wish Upon a Star- I like how this is acappella. NSync's got great vocals. 4/5

5. Colors of the Wind- The singing's really dull, the chorus gets a little better, but they just both sound so monotonous. 1/5

6. I Wan'na Be Like You- I loved this song as a child and I like Smash Mouth's version! Very fun! 5/5

7. Part of Your World- Perfect Disney song for Jessica Simpson to sing. 5/5

8. I Just Can't Wait to Be King- Eh...I don't like Aaron Carter, so I don't usually listen to this..?/5

9. Can You Feel the Love Tonight?-I actually like this version of the song! They made a good version of Elton John's song though I do not listen to the track often. Heard this song in a demo and liked it immediately. 4.5/5

10. Hakuna Matata- Another very catchy song. Perfect for Baha Men. 5/5

11. The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Room- I don't like Hilary Duff. I really don't. I don't like her at all. But I DO like the beat to this song! So, regardless if you like the artist or not, it might be a good song!

Some people might be appalled at some of the versions on Disneymania, a collection opf some of Disneys greatest songs sung by some of todays biggest pop stars. Others will love it, especially pop music fans. Highlights include Anastacias funky new version of Someday My Prince Will Come, Nysnc's stunning new rendition of When You Wish Upon a Star, Ushers R&B version of You'll Be in My Heart, and Jessica Simpsons beautiful vocals on Part of Your World. Some songs I could do without, and I actually was a bit appalled how much certain songs were butchered. Like Jump 5's version of the classic Beauty and the Beast, now a euro pop dance song, and Ashanti's flat, uninspired singing on Colors of the Wind. Why they just did not put Vanessa Williams version is beyond me.Also included are Can You Feel the Love Tonight, sung rather sweetly by S Club, I Just Can't Wait to Be King by Aaron Carter, and Reflection by Christina Aguilera. Overall a great collection to have with some fun new versions of some of Disneys greatest.
