Instrumental versions (no lyrics) as advertised, but not original orchestrations.
on 20 August 2014
I'm somewhat astonished at all the one-star reviews here from people who simply didn't bother to read the product description of "eight INSTRUMENTAL tracks".
I was looking for an instrumental version, and this is it.
My only complaint is that the tracks are NOT straight instrumental versions of the original soundtrack versions - these tracks are played by a different orchestra, which is not quite as full and rich as the original versions. It's far from terrible, but it doesn't quite have the dynamism and depth of the original tracks.
Compare "Let it Go" from this CD to the "Let it Go Instrumental Karaoke" track on the Frozen Deluxe Edition, which IS the original version minus Idina Menzel and the differences are clear.
It's fine for the kids to sing with (which I suppose is the stated intention of the CD), but audiophiles and soundtrack aficionados may be disappointed.
