Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

After the success of an out-and-out comedy like Aladdin, Disney knew they were on to a good thing but understandably they also didn't want to repeat themselves. So it is that all the way through this coming-of-age tale we have Rowan Atkinson, Nathan Lane and Ernie Sabella making merry wherever possible. In the songs, it falls to Bean himself verbally to gurn his way through "I Just Can't Wait To Be King". The other comic duo fire off each other superbly through the classic "Hakuna Matata" and the prologue to the cast version of "Can You Feel The Love Tonight". One aspect mildly missed is a sense of togetherness by having motifs from the songs re-appearing in the score. Synth overlays denote the Crimson Tide style of composer Hans Zimmer but then innocent flute lines ("King Of Pride ... Rock") do not. So it's an album of halves, where the songs are their own reward and the score proper can only threaten familiarity to those who know the composer's work. --Paul Tonks

Format:Audio CD
This CD has songs from The Lion King, Simba's Pride and Rhythm of the Pridelands, and I find it has captured the very magic from the films in its music. It features the exclusive vocal talents of Lebo M, who was a great inspiration to The Lion King. Also such celebrities as Tina Turner and Elton John have contributed to this album, with their own versions of Circle of Life, Can You Feel the Love Tonight and He Lives in You. My personal favourite song on this album is number 6, One Of Us as it is a very dramatic song and it plays a big part in the film Simba's Pride. As you can see I have rated The Lion King Collection with 5 stars, it has every good Lion King song on it from Be Prepared to Hakuna Matata! For those who arnt big fans of the Lion King, this CD may still be of interest as it has sensual songs by the South African Choir, and Ladysmith Black Mambazo who add to the African spirit which makes the Lion King so unique.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent CD 16 Dec 2002
Format:Audio CD
The is one of my favourite CD's. Why? The variety of songs on it for starters. Some parts are Traditional African music, others are the classics everyone knows so well ( Circle of Life, Can you feel the love tonight, Hakuna Matata etc...). There are songs from both the original film, and the newer 'Simba's Pride'. Some don't seem to come from either, yet still manage to fit effortlessly into the CD. There are tracks on it that are lively enough to make one want to dance, yet there are others that are gentle and emotional enough to move one to tears. Beautiful in places and hilarious in others its one one the most diverse CD's I own. I would thoroughly recommend this CD to anyone who is fond of the Lion King, and to all those who are looking for a CD that is somewhere between modern music and classical. Overall - excellent.

3.0 out of 5 stars All in all, a disapointing cd 22 April 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you are looking for a cd to remind you of the wonderful music in the lion king, this is not the one for you. Many of the songs lack the the snazzy sounds that the characters give, and leave you unsatisfied.
All in all, it was very disapointing. You dont get the best of both worlds. You'd expect the cd to be a collection of all the best songs, however very few of them actually come from the films, and are sang by artists you dont really want to hear.
