Audio CD, Soundtrack, Import, August 15, 2006
Value-added Australian-only release featuring the soundtracks to both of Disney's hit 'Little Mermaid' animated films, the original 1989 theatrical release and 2000's straight-to-video sequel 'Little Mermaid II: Return To The Sea'. The first film's soundtrack also contains a bonus track not included on the U.S. release, 'Part Of Your World (Alana De Roma)'. A combined total of 29 tracks. When you consider how much money you'll save since the U.S. pressings respectively have suggested list prices of $16.97 & $9.97, how can you pass up a deal this good?! Standard double jewelcase.

The music itself is amazing, especially the first disk, which is the original Little Mermaid soundtrack. For some reason at the beginning of "Part of Your World" Ariel says: "Maybe he's right. Maybe there is something the matter with me." When in the movie she says: "If only I could make him understand. I just don't see things the way he does." But I've noticed it's like that on other releases too, like the versions on the Princess Favorites and Disney's Greatest cds. There is a bonus track, a remake of "Part of Your World." I couldn't stand to listen to the whole song, so I'll just say the first few seconds sound like a ten year old vocalist trying to make the Little Mermaid hip hop.
The second disk is mostly music from the sequel, which is the main reason I bought the pack because I couldn't find it on itunes. There are really only a few songs from II that I wanted. With the exception of "For a Moment" they aren't as good as the ones in the original, but I remember getting this movie a few weeks before going to an island as a kid and singing the songs in my head while we were there and playing mermaids with my sister. So even though they don't impress my inner music critic I still want them. The other tracks are random songs (mostly remakes) ostensibly sung by Sebastian the crab. Why do it?
Overall, this combination pack is highly recommended for value and the majority of its content. I took off a star To penalize Disney's bizarre compulsion to hip-hop and popify classics. (Plus the uninspired "Sebastian" songs) But who knows? You might end up liking them. And if not, that's what the skip button's for, right?
