4.0 out of 5 stars A fine Disney Soundtrack 26 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Well, here I am - 18 years old! Yes, reviewing a Disney Soundtrack! Well, I remember watching Aladdin in the cinema. I was spellbound, and so this soundtrack kept me spellbound for years! Sometimes it still does. (Novelty value only, you realise?!) If you liked Aladdin, get it. If your children liked Aladdin, get it. If you want to impress your children, get it, listen to it, learn it, then sing it to them. The songs are all very memorable, and if you're down, it cheers you up. I think that whatever age you are, you should use this to cheer yourself up in the car home from work, or in another suitably isolated environment, unless of course you don't mind the ridicule. I can take it. YOU could too! It's worth it! Anyway, only 4 stars because some of the instrumental tracks are a little boring, but do, admittedly, add to the character of the soundtrack.

4.0 out of 5 stars Aladdin Soundtrack Review 26 Oct 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a must have for any fan of the sensational film. It includes all the original songs and those remixed by artists as well as all the music. It's great to have a sing a long to for adults and children alike. You can't sit still whilst listening to absolute classics like 'Friend like me' and 'Prince Ali' and what could brighten a party up more than a good sing along to 'A Whole New World'. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical 15 July 2005
By Kurt Messick HALL OF FAME
Format:Audio CD
I have a friend in Bloomington with whom I go to films on a regular basis. We have several genres of films which we prefer, and others with which we will experiment, but animation, particularly Disney, was never among them. However, I've often enjoyed Robin Williams characterisations, and so persuaded my friend Jim (who informed me that I would then owe him the next three film selections) to go to Aladdin. He enjoyed the film, and I loved it. This was a children's film that had entertainment value for adults, too, and crafted the witticism and irony into the dialogue and songs that were incredible.
Alan Menken is the primary composer behind this soundtrack. Working with Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, Menken and company produced a Oscar-winning soundtrack with individual songs as winners and nominees ('A friend like me', Williams vocal character tour de force, received a nomination, and the themesong, 'A whole new world', won the award).
Tim Rice (Sir Tim Rice, actually), lyricist, is known for many spectacular productions, including various collaborations with Andrew Lloyd Webber (again, now titled...), such as Jesus Christ Superstar and Evita. The crafting and care in the songs is evident; erudition is not sparing in this collection, but neither are the songs inaccessible to either children or adults. This, I feel, is the mark of a great talent.
Finally, working on the project was Howard Ashman. Ashman died of AIDS in 1991. He worked on many Disney projects, including Beauty and the Beast. According to the Disney corporation, 'In animation, we have two guardian angels. One is Walt Disney, who continues to touch every frame of our movies. The other is Howard Ashman, who continues to touch every note of our movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars "A whole new world" of music on one cd! 3 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a perfect cd for all the family, and especially for all those budding disney fans out there.
I enjoy especially listening to this cd on the bus. It keeps me highly entertained as the vehicle cruises through london in manic rush hour. It just like watching the film, but without the rigmarole of having a tv and a dvd/video going.
My favourite song has to be "A whole new world". It is the perfect love song and is perfect to sing along to. The song by jafar is also pretty impressive, and if you are feeling particularly nasty you can sing along to that too.
Great price. Buy it before someone else does!

5.0 out of 5 stars Aladdin...in all its EDITED glory! 28 Feb 2004
By Jake - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Aladdin features some of the best music ever heard, and both the songs and the movie will outlast time.
However, this edition of the soundtrack is CENSORED and EDITED, NOT remastered. During the original theatrical release of the movie in 1992, the opening number, "Arabian Nights," featured the objectionable lyric "Where they cut off your ear if they don't like your face"; on this reissued version of the soundtrack as well as the 1993 video release of the film, it has been removed and replaced with "Where it's flat and immense and the heat is intense." This is not only wrong, but it is done in a very unprofessional and obvious manner: that is, you can tell that the actor singing that line is different than the actor singing the rest of the song.
ther lyrics have reportedly been changed for this CD release, as well (supposedly in Friend Like Me and maybe others.) However, I am lucky enough to own the original release of the soundtrack from 1992, which is blessedly unedited, so I can't comment specifically.
I highly reccomend seeking out a copy of the original 1992 release if you can find it. It might be found through eBay, Amazon marketplace sellers, or secondhand music stores. The original release can be easily identified by its alternate cover art, which is different than the one seen on Amazon's page for this version. It features Geenie coming out of his lamp, holding onto a square in which we see Aladdin and Jasmine on the Magic Carpet against the background of the city of Agrabah.
If you can find that version, by all means do and teach Disney that censorship of their movies and music is wrong. If not, since the majority of the music is the same, this version will do nicely. Either way, be sure to add this wonderful soundtrack to your CD collection. You won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars best Disney soundtrack out there 30 Jun 2003
By J. Branham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion for a soundtrack of any movie to be considered excellent, it has to have an extremely good score e.g. Star Wars, The Patriot, Braveheart, etc. Soundtracks for animated movies must have extremely good songs but it's usually ok if they don't have the strong score to back the songs up.
Aladdin has both. The songs are awesome! "A Whole New World", "Friend Like Me", "Prince Ali", and "One Jump Ahead" are great. Lea Salonga and Brad Kane sing an amazing duet on "A Whole New World" and Robin Williams is perfect for the Genie in "Friend Like Me". He sings very well and makes the song funny at the same time.
The songs are very well done but what really makes this CD one of my favorites is the orchestration. The score is simply amazing. Most people listen to just the songs only on these types of soundtrack albums but you can listen to this entire CD because the music is just that good.
This is in my opinion the best Disney soundtrack by far. You will not regret buying it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jonathan Freeman: A Broadway Winner in My Book! :) 20 Dec 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have the original version of this CD. And the other reviewers are right; this is a wonderful recording for ANY collection. All the performers are wonderful, and Disney was smart to lure Broadway vets such as Brad Kane, Lea Salonga, and Jonathan Freeman in for the soundtrack and film.
Brad Kane and Lea Salonga's heartfelt performance of "A Whole New World" is truly mesmerizing, and wonderfully well-written (both musically and lyrically). Out of all the songs, though, my favorite is (as always) the VILLAIN song. In this case, the "Prince Ali (Reprise)" performed by Jonathan Freeman (who also speaks for Jafar in the film). This song is performed with just enough elegance and sinicism to make it worthy of hundreds of listenings. He's wonderful on this CD! You won't regret buying this soundtrack. Even though it's intended for kids, adults will get just as much a kick (even more so) out of it. The soundtrack doesn't really even reflect the "animated" style of the film; it actually sounds more like something written for Broadway/live-action than anything else (mainly because Disney brought in great talent). This is a clear winner! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Five fun songs and a bunch of instrumental filler 6 Jan 2002
By burghtenor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Of Disney's full-length animated movies since the late 1980's, ALADDIN boasts one of the strongest scores. Music is provided by Alan Menken, whose partnership with Disney over the past 15 years or so has produced many great songs. This is the last Disney movie to feature lyrics by Howard Ashman, who passed away during the production of the movie. Lyrics later in the production cycle are provided by Tim Rice. All three of the previously-mentioned men are quite talented.
All the voices are great on this CD, although it's a shame that Lea Salonga is only featured on one track. Brad Kane, Bruce Adler, Peabo Bryson, and Regina Belle are great. Robin Williams does a surprisingly good job on the singing of his funny songs. Jonathan Freeman's unique voice is perfect for the evil Jafar.
However, like many of the Disney soundtracks, the original songs plus any reprises are not enough to fill up the CD, so the second half is comprised of the instrumental underscoring used in other parts of the movie. While the underscoring is always pleasant, it is never as interesting as the sung songs. When I listen to this CD, I often skip over tracks 12 through 20.
My CD is not the "remastered" recording, so it features the original, somewhat-insensitive lyric in "Arabian Nights." Therefore, I cannot comment on the recording quality of the substitution made.
