While the inclusion of novelty songster Weird Al Yankovic (here with "Polkamon") and new-waver all-stars the B-52's (here with the playful "The Chosen One") sharpens the proceedings with their individual visions, most of the performers here have been coached by producer David Foster or other music industry veterans. Most successful is former disco diva Donna Summer, who emerges with the dramatic tune "The Power of One," which sneakily includes the Pokémon theme featured throughout the film. Twelve-year-old Alysha may be a burgeoning teen star with her surprisingly mature interpretation of "Dreams." The emphasis is on the current teen-pop trend. Dream Street, Christian boy band Plus One, and O-Town (the band documented in ABC's TV series Making the Band) all serve up the prescribed recipe for success: swooning harmonies, Hallmark-card lyrics, and near-operatic melodies designed for radio. You expected a movie starring Pokémon to miss a trend? C'mon. --Rob O'Connor

The rest I'm not all that crazy about, like Weird Al Yankovitz's "Polkamon" or the Bellosom song (what possessed them to include that is beyond me. The others are kinda mediocre, or just for reeeeealll die-hard fans. I'm not a die-hard fan anymore so I guess I'm too old to appreciate all of the material, but I am still kinda into Pokemon, so overall it's a good album. More suited for younger children or veteran fans like myself.
Ah the sweet memories.....
What surprised me about this CD was that the whole family didn't mind listening to it over and over in the car. I have a short tolerance level for Pokemon. But this CD has some strong "power ballads", cute pop tunes and the very entertaining Weird Al Polka (everybody Polka mon-get it?) The song "Blah, Blah, Blah" humorously addresses all of the adults who don't understand the obsession.
The production values are good too. Some children's CD's have second rate orchestrations, digital mastering, etc. This is a professional recording.
If you're a true Weird Al fan looking for obtaining a legit copy of the song, its well worth it for you! :D
