Dear Music Appreciators,

Much parental fuss has been made over KIDZ BOP. This is a music series by a record label called Razor & Tie that has been around for about ten years. Every year they release a couple of compilation CDs and up to four "special collection" CDs (such as "Kidz Bop Sings The Beatles"). The main concept is kids performing "kid-friendly" versions of Top 40 songs. "Today's Biggest Hits Sung By Kids For Kids" as the album cover proclaims. Some parents think this is great and some parents are horrified, what with all the sex, drugs, and rock and roll (but especially sex) vibes that are woven into many of today's top pop songs (and to have children listening to other children singing this filth...oh, the horror!)

I shall now throw in my two cents for what it's worth:

I am a reasonably religious and relatively respectable father of two. I think this stuff is fine and I can see why kids of a certain age or a certain phase might lap it up. The songs are edited to a degree and the kid performers turn in fairly quality performances.

Although the series is aimed at music fans 5-12, I would think it would hold the greatest appeal for the 5-9 range - a time when many kids will be more interested in the beats and the feel of the music - a time when kids just want something that sounds fun and cool that they can dance to. And "Today's Biggest Hits" certainly have plenty of big danceable beats that will blow the usual kiddie songs out of the water.

Many 10-12 year olds will already have moved on to the genuine article and for those that haven't, more power to them and their parents - they should keep listening to stuff like KIDZ BOP while they still can.

I have to admit, in a perfect world, my children would listen to classical music, contemporary Christian, perhaps some instrumental jazz, and so on. However, for the tween in my house, this is a good compromise. She likes the driving beat and the up-to-date song list. I like that it's at least partially cleaned up. Compared to the garbage that comes pouring in from many radio stations, this is not bad.

For those who would complain about little kids hearing or singing along to songs like Edge of Glory... please think back just a bit to your own childhood. Now, I don't know about you, but I grew up singing songs like Puff the Magic Dragon. Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. Even a little Def Leppard (Pour Some Sugar on Me - yowza). Never thought a thing of it. Sure didn't grow up to be a pothead because I unknowingly sang about Puff the Marijuana Dragon. Didn't become promiscuous because I sang along with Def Leppard. Never even picked up on the underlying meanings, not until years later.

Bottom line: the kids performing on this album are reasonably talented. The songs are well-chosen to appeal to kids. It's not too painful for an adult to listen to (especially after years of toddler tunes played ad nauseum). So, all in all, this one gets my thumbs-up.

My daughter is slightly obsessed with this CD. The production is good, they sound similar to the radio versions but like kids. I appreciate that the songs are very current but edited to be more age appropriate.

I can understand the arguments being made on both sides as to whether this album designed for children is actually appropriate for children, as some of the songs today that this album uses sing about topics that aren't really kid appropriate. Being in the public school system, my children are actually exposed to worse music than this in their gym class. It is ultimately up to each parent to decide if this album is right for their own child. The only time my children listen to CDs or the radio (outside of school) is in the car when I'm driving them around. If there is a song that comes on the radio or on a CD we are playing that I don't like them listening to they are ok with me skipping it because I've already explained to them the reasons why I don't like them listening to certain songs. I think it comes down to whether you choose to shelter your child from being exposed to certain things or if you try to teach them to make good choices by providing them with information that allows them to do so - it is up to the parent to decide which course of action is right for them.

As far as the music is concerned, my children (ages 8-10) enjoy hearing the songs sung by children like them.

I have been buying my niece, Kidz Bop Music CDs for years. She loves to dance and sing to the music. We always dance to Kidz Bop when I visit her. Some of the songs, are the same as current popular music, but the words are changed, to be acceptable for children's ears. I highly recommend this this CD, and the other Kidz Bop CDs, for kids from pre-school age to pre-teen age.

This series is great because it redoes the current music with appropriate lyrics for young children. My niece loves it. It makes the typical top radio songs more kid friendly!! And the great thing is that the children don't mind or even care that the lyrics are changed to kid friendly.
