Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Disney has struck platinum with High School Musical, a made-for-cable movie that was mega-popular on the Disney Channel before spawning a mega-popular soundtrack. Echoing Grease, the plot involves two students (Zac Efron and Vanessa Anne Hutchinson) who fall for eath other while on vacation, only to realize they go to the same high school — though they belong to different cliques. Fortunately they both love singing! The songs are typical Disney pop: on the bland side but also very well-crafted, they stick to your head like strawberry-flavored gum. Among the standouts are "Get'cha Head in the Game," which incorporates noises from a basketball game (squeaking sneakers, bouncing balls, whistles) to great effect; the fab tribute to 1970s piano-pop "What I've Been Looking For"; and the old-school show-tuney "Stick to the Status Quo." The music falters when it tries to go "caliente suave" (a la Gloria Estefan's substandard "Bop to the Top") but overall this CD could get kids to bounce and sing along nicely. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost as Much Fun as Watching the Movie 28 Jun 2006
By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
It started as a Disney Channel Original Movie. However, "High School Musical" was an instant hit and has become a phenomenon.

I finally gave in a couple weeks ago and watched the movie. I immediately discovered what all the hype is about. It may be cheesy, but it is lots of fun. I just had to get this soundtrack CD.

This is not a musical in the traditional Broadway sense of the term. Since this was made by Disney, it is teen pop, something that has worked well for the company for several years now. This will limit the appeal to adults, but it explains the love of teens.

Personally, I find it highly addictive and a little embarrassing. I find myself with these songs stuck in my head when I'm not listening to it. When I am listening, I can't help but tap and groove to the beat, which can be just as embarrassing.

While the majority of the songs are teen pop, they do incorporate other styles into the mix. "Get'cha Head in the Game" is a hip hop song complete with basketballs bouncing and shoes squeaking to the beat. "Bop to the Top" has a catchy Salsa rhythm and "What I've Been Looking For" has a 70's feel to it.

"Stick to the Status Quo" is their nod to the traditional Broadway big cast song. It still gets a pop feel and is a great cross between the two styles. This funny song includes the spoken dialog from the movie as some of the students share their secret desires that are not appropriate for their click.

My favorite song on the CD is "When There was Me and You." Vanessa Anne Hudgens truly shines in this ballad singing about the hurt she feels when another character turns his back on her.

And that does bring up a great thing. All the vocal work here is top notch.

5.0 out of 5 stars track repitition 8 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
i just thought i'd write a very quick note with regard to the apparent repitition of several tracks on the track listing...(i know that someone else was asking about this in their review). it puzzled me as well at first, but having now given in and bought the cd, it all becomes clear.

track 11 is the same song as that of track 2 but performed by 'B5'...i have no idea whether this is an artist/band...never heard of him/her/them before.

tracks 12 and 13 are the karaoke instrumental versions of tracks 1 and 8. these are probably the most popular of the songs from the movie...two duets sang by the main two characters, troy and gabriella...the ones that every little girl is going to want to sing along to! i do think that it's a bit cheeky trying to make the cd last longer by adding instrumental versions, but if any soundtrack can get away with it...it's this one! kids are gonna want to sing along!

and tracks 3 and 4 are again the same song...infact just the same words really...two very different musical arrangements and two different sets of singers. the first performed by characters sharpay and ryan (an upbeat, quick, very cheesy version), and then a shortened version performed by troy and gabriela (a heartfelt ballad). both of these are direct from the movie.

hope that helps if you were wondering like i was!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great start to this wonderful sequel! 13 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
Original premiered in American in January 2006, the first version of High School Musical made its way to UK TV screens in mid to late 2006, and boy was it hyped! People were going crazy about it, and it would soon prove to be the start of a so far brilliant sequel.

1/ Start Of Something New/ 3:16
The opening song, and one of the best known. Performed by the wonderful Gabriella and Troy, Start of Something New is an awesome ballad basically about love or friendship. But you've heard it anyway.

2/ Get'cha Head In The Game/ 2:27
Performed by Troy, despite its hype and popularity, this is actually one of my least favourites, but it's incredibly catchy and still loveable.

3/ What I've Been Looking For/ 2:03 & 4/ What I've Been Looking For (Reprise)/ 1:19
The former, performed by Ryan and Sharpay; my second favourite on the set. A wonderful, catchy sing-a-long tune and you'll find yourself tipping your toes to. The latter is the same track performed in ballad form by Troy & Gabrielle, though the full song is not used. My least favourite out of the two.

5/ Stick To The Status Quo/ 4:28
Yet again one of the more popular songs. This was not released as a single, yet still managed to enter the UK Top 75 on downloads alone due to its insane popularity. It's the only album track on the set to have achieved this.

6/ When There Was Me & You/ 3:00
This seems to be one of the most hated songs on the soundtrack with critics and even fans alike, yet I don't understand it because Gabriella's vocals are absolutely astounding.

7/ Bop To The Top/ 1:47
Ryan and Sharpay's second song on the album, and my favourite. Awesome song.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great film, great soundtrack! 2 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
I had been getting mixed responses from friends who had seen the film but when i decided to watch it, i loved every part of it! I immediately had to go out and buy the soundtrack which is such fun to listen to! I am 14 and i think people around my age group will love the soundtrack because it has such enthusiasm, but i don't think the music will be appropriate for adults.
