Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

From the Flashdance-like opener, "Pokémon Theme," to the closer, "You Can Do It (If You Really Try)," 2.B.A. Master is high-energy fare. This CD sports an over-the-top flavor drawn from video-game-styled electronic blips, disco danceability, and the hollow tripped-out beats of theme-park musicals, all of which makes this super hot stuff for the Pokémon generation. The 13 tunes here are spread between action narrative ("What Kind of Pokémon Are You?," "Together Forever"), scene-setting devices ("Viridian City"), and character theme songs for our hero Ash, his Pokémon Pickachu, and his pal Misty, as well as rival trainers, Team Rocket. "What Kind of Pokémon Are You?" features multitracked rapping and R&B choral refrains; the superlative "2.B.A. Master" bursts with space-age Michael Jackson-inspired speak-singing and electronic riffs; and not only is the funky "PokéRap" featured in audio, but the enhanced disc contains the visual component as well. --Paige La Grone

I wanted to respond to everyone who has been critisizing this CD as being excessively kiddie. I will admit that I am a huge fan of Pokemon at 17 years old. The outstanding cartoon has blown past The Simpsons to becmome my new favorite animated show. I even loved what little bit of the game I was able to play when a friend of mine lent me his GameBoy. I like Pokemon stuff because, although it's an animated show and although it doesn't have all the violence, swearing, etc... that are commonly associated with non-kids entertainment, that doesn't mean it can't still be entertaining for everyone. Think of Empire Strikes Back, which was an outstanding movie even though it didn't have a single swear. Pokemon has many excellent qualities that make it great. This CD is not trying just to have some childish, shallow music designed to appeal only to very young kids. Instead, it strives to deliver some great music in a style that's honest and optimistic, while realistically portraying various elements of the Pokemon world and its characters. I'll admit that a few of the songs are quite stupid. Others are good but not great. But there's also a lot of excellent ones. I especially liked Together Forever and The Time Has Come (Pikachu's Goodbye). It's also nice to have the cool Pokemon Theme Song on CD, even though I've already heard it a million times on the TV show. People who can't look past the fact that this CD has certain attributes that our society generally considers to be childish will be missing out on some great music.

This CD very nicely captures the mood of Pokémon. Any fan should at least like all the songs and will probably love many of them. Each sings about some aspect of the Pokémon phenomenon: "2B A Master" describes the unfailing dedication and plight of the Pokémon trainer, "What Kind of Pokémon Are You?" celebrates type superiority, "Everything Changes" is all about Evolution, and on and on. And of course, no Pokémon CD would be complete without the ballad of it all, "Aim To Be A Master", the Pokémon TV show theme.
While on the topic, I believe that parents who are unsure whether to let their kids participate in the cultural force that is Pokémon should buy and listen to this CD, as it so effectively captures the spirit of the whole entity. Pokémon is not about violence, it's about striving towards a goal; it's not about wasting time on an unworthy pursuit, it's about learning that if you are dedicated, there's nothing you can't do (the last track on the CD, "You Can Do It [If You Really Try]", says that better than I ever could). This CD is about Pokémon, the phenomenon, and should be bought by anyone who is interested for any reason in that phenomenon.
Thank you for reading my review, and I hope you enjoy the CD!

This is a very well produced album, and fun whether you're seven or seventy. For grown ups, there are some good work-out tracks, too.
The songs have an interesting range of styles, from pop to techno, easy listening to light rock, and even a little rap. One track sounds like a Michael Jackson ballad, another a dance mix you might hear when you're out clubbing.
"Misty's Song" is actually pretty thoughtful, considering this is supposed to be a kids' CD. It reminded me of a few tracks on Jennifer Warnes' CD "The Hunter", or something similar.
The most fun is, of course, the Team Rocket anthem, "Double Trouble". Jessie, James, and Meowth join in on the catchy tune. When I first heard James give his "evil" laugh, I burst out laughing. That and Meowth imploring Team Rocket to "stop yappin'," and capture some pokemon!
The overall mood is uplifting and fun, promoting teamwork, friendship, etc. It helps to be familiar with the TV show, but if you have a kid into the whole Pokemon thing, you probably know enough to understand the references to Viridian City, Team Rocket, Pokemon evolution, and generally what's going on.
You may be surprised just how many familiar Pokemon you can pick out of the PokeRap song.
The liner notes list all 150 (known) Pokemon, lyrics for each song, and a pretty snazzy Poke-poster on the back once you unfold the insert.
If you're faced with a Poke-challenge from a Miss Spears or N'Sync album, just take out your Pokeball and say, "2bA Master CD, I CHOOSE YOU!"
It'll be the shortest match history!

I think that this is a great CD for any Pokemon fan and I noticed that even teenagers tend to like these songs. My favorite songs were 2BA Master and Double Trouble. There are many other great songs on this CD (like Misty's Song or The newer Pokemon Theme) so I suggest that any Pokemon fan should go and buy this CD!
