Once of the most exciting features about the CD is that when your child inserts it into their computer, there will be exposed to a whole new area of bonus content. This content includes additional musical selections, behind the scenes looks at the movie, and links to different Princess and the Frog communities online. Overwhelmingly, the Princess and the Frog soundtrack has enjoyed positive reviews from those who have bought, from adults to children. Despite some level of controversy that has surrounded the movie, most individuals are able to agree that the soundtrack is reminiscent of the work of the late great Alan Menken in the early 1990’s.
Unfortunately, the song Never Knew I Needed by Ne-Yo has been criticized as the album’s primary weak point for its overcommercialization and weak sound. On the bright side, Randy Newman’s trademark jazz and blue rhythms are noticeable throughout the rest of the album’s titles. Many fans of the album are indeed calling the soundtrack a return to the Golden Age of music for the Walt Disney Company.
