Well, Frozen is an absolute win in the musical category, and if you’re a fan of Broadway, then you will be very, very pleased.
The orchestral score from Christophe Beck is quite, quite lovely, and pulls you strongly in to the film right from the beginning. But as solid as the score is, the actual songs are where Frozen soars.
“Frozen Heart” starts the film off strong with a solid, sea-chanty-esque rhthym, “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” establishes the relationship between the sisters and is heart-breakingly sweet and sad at the same time. “Reindeers Are Better Than People” is a cute little ditty featuring Jonathan Groff, and “Fixer Upper” is fun and energetic and will make great background music when walking through the Disney parks.
But there are three songs that everyone will be talking about.
“For the First Time in Forever” (and its reprise) is the adult counter-point to “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” and is absolutely essential to understanding who both Anna and Elsa are. It has a great build throughout, catchy lyrics, and really fun visuals. Think of it in the same vein as other Disney "I Want" Songs, and you won’t be far off at all.
“Love is an Open Door” is a really lovely love-song duet, and in a different film, could easily be the one that everyone will remember at the movie’s end. The opening and closing of doors is a recurring theme in Frozen, and when the song plays, it is easy to see how Anna can be swept away by her handsome prince.
Incidentally, although we’re past the point where this should be surprising, Kristin Bell has quite a lovely singing voice, and she’s really fun to listen to throughout.
But the breakout hit song of Frozen is, without question, “Let it Go.”
Anyone familiar with Idina Menzel’s career knows this, but that woman has an amazing voice, with a tone very unlike many others. She isn’t always technically perfect, but she is incredibly talented, and the imperfections in her voice are what allow it to bring so much emotion to what she sings. If you only know her from watching Glee, than this may surprise you. If you’re familiar with her from Rent, then you know she has the pipes, but you may not be prepared for her ability to reach in to your heart and twist. If you know Menzel from listening to Wicked, then you know what I’m talking about.
I was introduced to Idina Menzel’s singing when she performed “Defying Gravity” at the 2004 Tony Awards, and fell in love, rushing out to purchase the soundtrack. Although I love the entire show, “Defying Gravity” was my favorite feminine power ballad of all time, and remains a regular on my iPod.
“Let It Go” is better.
Any review of the music itself seems completely irrelevant (it's really good though). Come on, if you have seen the movie you know what the music sounds like. If you have small children in your home/car then the kind of music that YOU like is completely irrelevant as we all know it's much more important to keep the children happy so that you don't have to crash your car to stop the fighting in the back seat!
The most annoying aspect of this soundtrack is how damn catchy it all is, it's almost impossible to get it out of your head and I find myself whistling and or humming various songs throughout the day, in the shower, walking around the office, in meetings. It's a little embarrassing... unless your co-workers are parents as well because I guarantee they are doing the same thing.
If you have small children, this will be a soundtrack that you can get a lot of mileage out of and the music is really good to boot. Given the choice (as a parent) between this and any other Disney soundtrack for a long cross country drive, I would pick this any day of the week and twice on Sunday.
