The Wild Thornberrys Movie
Eliza Thornberry and her simian pal Darwin take on an African safari, evil poachers, and a London boarding school in Eliza's big-screen debut. That's quite a tall order for a 12-year-old--and a movie soundtrack--to handle, but like the dynamic tween, The Wild Thornberrys Movie delivers. Youssou N' Dour and Sting, Angelique Kidjo with Dave Matthews and Las Hijas del Sol contribute world music celebrations flavored with exotic percussion and soulful vocals, while Baha Men skid around on the manic pace of reggae-pop with "Accident." Paul Simon's jungle-folk-tinged "Father and Daughter" is more traditional rock, as is the Pretenders' cheerfully uptempo cover of Intaferon's 1980s obscurity "Get Out of London," and Peter Gabriel's "Animal Nation," which harkens to the throbbing guitar electronics found on his 1992 album Us. Even the teen pop-centric tracks are high quality--Nick Carter's sunny keyboard nugget and Sita's irresistible "Happy." Appealing to kids and adults both, without pandering to either crowd, The Wild Thornberrys Movie is an enjoyable delight through and through. --Annie Zaleski

Nice to hear how wrong I was.
I loved the film and I loved the soundtrack just as much, if not more. The list of artists for this project is amazing: Peter Gabriel, Sting, Dave Matthews, Paul Simon, and Rusted Root just to name a few. the whole album is well produced, not one of those typical crappy "look we have kids singing kids songs and they're sooooo cute!"
My son and I have spent hours listening to this cd in the car, wherever we go. The Peter Gabriel tune, "Animal Nation" is one of the best songs he's put together in over 10 years. A real treat for sure.
The music producers put together a smart list of artists who put out some smart, original pieces for this film. I love this compilation and I heartily recommend it to all.
Pick it up, you won't be disappointed.
Then there's Paul Simon's "Father and Daughter". Apparently the version on this CD is a unique mix that is only available on this CD. It is a touching song that makes a great choice to be played for the father & daughter dance at a wedding reception. This is far from your usual 'children's music'.
Those two songs make this CD worth getting. Everything else is a bonus.
