5.0 out of 5 stars Truly the best Disney soundtrack ever! 6 May 2006
By Kyle
Format:Audio CD
This is certainly the most amazing soundtrack that Disney has produced, proven by the fact that it has won awards for its brilliance. The music is absolutely mind-blowing, and there is something there to touch every emotion, from the dramatic "Circle of Life," to the beautiful heart-wrenching "Can You Feel The Love Tonight," the fun, bouncy "I Just Can't Wait to be King" and "Hakuna Matata," and of course there's no forgetting the dark "Be Prepared." There is, of course, the wacky "Morning Report" which, despite being very good in its own right, does not match up to the others, it being an additional song for the Special Addition. Of course, it is not only the Elton John/Tim Rice songs which make up the brilliance of this soundtrack. Hans Zimmer's scores, mixed with the amazing essences of African music, really bring the CD together! The hit songs at the end are also brilliant, especially the newly added "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" re-mix! Altogether, this is one heck of a soundtrack, and it is no wonder that it won the awards that it did! This may not have as many tracks as some other Disney soundtracks, but the quality of the music on this will make you listen to it over and over again!

5.0 out of 5 stars music that makes the film a masterpiece 2 Aug 2009
Format:MP3 Download
This album collection of score and songs from The Lion King is frankly unprecedented in its all-round strength. Rarely is every tune so perfectly suited for the film it is associated with, and moreover, even less frequently is the music brilliant as a stand alone melody. For me, the songs are the triumph of the film's soundtrack, with each actor reaching beyond the requirements to deliver stunning sing-alongs; "Be Prepared" , the song of Scar, performed by Jeremy Irons was top class, and Pumba, Timone and Simba in "Hakuna Matata" were also resonant.
I will admit that my love for the film, its storyline, the characters and how it made me so emotionally involved when i first watched it and ever since, may have swayed my response to the music. However, the fact remains that the film's success owes much to this soundtrack and deservedly so. Subequently, it receives the highest acclaim from me and this is supported by a generation of avid fans ever since.

5* is the only legitimate rating for this epic.

5.0 out of 5 stars An album that's still Disney's best work! 8 Jan 2003
By Ahmed
Format:Audio CD
This album is still one of Disney's best musical albums. Standing high up in the top 5 of the best selling soundtracks of all time, this multi-platinum album has sold 10 million copies in the US alone. The sweet melodies and flute inspired music is peaceful and relaxing. It's just like listening to new age music. Kids as well as adults will love this work of art. Some of Elton John's greatest works can be found on this album. The music from "El Dorado" is nothing compared to this masterpiece. Hans Zimmer's music and Elton John's vocals make a great collaboration. This multi-Grammy award and Oscar winning album is a sure winner. It's for lovers of all traditional Disney music (like the music from Beauty&the beast, Mary Poppins, and the Jungle Book). If you're also interested in great instrumental music and originality, you'll love this creative album! It was the first album I ever bought ( when I was 7).
The album starts out with the powerful popular "Circle of Life" with a great beat and a powerful vocal performance! It's a powerful passionate masterpiece! Next on the album is the ever-so-popular single that kids will still love today, "Oh I just can't wait to be king" another track with a good beat collaborated with great African drum sound sin the background!
Then the music suddenly changes into an evil creative track, "be prepared". But then you go on to the movie's most popular single at the time the fun-loving Timon and Pumba dance to "Hakuna Matata".
The album is filled with peaceful, fun-loving, romantic, and evil tracks as well as great instrumental works by Hans Zimmer. But still alongside the addictive "Hakuna Matata" is the romantic melody with great vocal performances. Yes it's "can you feel the love tonight" a passionate track with good lyrics and an influencing theme.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure musical genius. 17 May 2003
By Bluey
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When the soundtrack to this amazing film was first heard, critics said it didn't live up to previous titles such as The Little Mermaid. Please don't believe them!
Being one of those people who loves soundtracks, out of my collection (which includes various Star Wars CDs and The Matrix) this is the most played and most adored.
It's too hard to describe in words how magical this soundtrack is, especially the emotional and beautiful instrumental tracks (the tracks near the end of the CD). The African drums and vocals are really powerful and woven well into the orchestrated tracks.
People who dare to rank this CD as something sub-standard need to take a deep breath and listen to it again. If it doesn't blow you away the first time, try try again!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Animated Film Soundtrack of Choice! 21 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
Hold on now children. Sure, the Elton John songs are great. In particular, ‘Circle of Life’ (as heard in the film) sticks in the mind, as an irresistible blend of contemporary Western song writing with glorious African vocals. That spectacular opening zoom up to the head of Pride Rock as it hits the chorus (you know the bit) is a movie image that will probably never leave me, and its awesome impact owes BIG TIME to Elton’s songwriting talent. The quirky ‘Hakuna Matata’ and his likeable pop ballad version of ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight?’ are also definite high points of the album.
But hang on. We cannot speak of this soundtrack without mentioning the efforts of a certain Mr Hans Zimmer! (The previous user comment seemed to imply that Elton John also composed the orchestral cues – boy, did he get HIS lions crossed!)
The orchestral score aspect of ‘The Lion King’ is epic and beautiful, and simply WORKS, because it never allows itself to admit that all we’re really dealing with here is a few thousand cute animal drawings. Zimmer unashamedly approaches the drama and emotional nuances of the story with respect and straight-faced sensitivity; happily, no gawky cartoonish fluttery is anywhere to be heard.
His themes are great, and there are many. (Watched ‘The Lion King 2’ recently, and without Zimmer’s memorable leitmotifs, it seemed to have no soul.
