Product Description

John Debney - The Emperor's New Groove

Amazon.co.uk

Disney's score-heavy soundtrack to the animated Emperor's New Groove blends a scoop of splashy and sentimental contemporary tunes with a shovelful of evocative, masterfully crafted compositions. Big-name artists such as Shawn Colvin, Eartha Kitt and Tom Jones each signed on to sing one of five Sting-penned songs, and Sting himself lends vocals to two tracks (one a duet with Colvin), so the stars are flying high. But fans of these folks may feel they are forever flipping through the wordless orchestral numbers in search of the record's radio-friendly fare. But buyers with more eclectic listening habits are in for a fully engaging if sometimes jumpy sonic ride: Composer John Debney sends pulses racing then mellows them out on tracks teeming with tension ("Beware the Groove"), trepidation ("The Jungle Rescue"), or tenderness ("A New Hope"), and Sting as songwriter doses up splashes of spice by way of the salsified "Perfect World", for which Jones's considerable vocal energies couldn't be better suited, and the prickly "Snuff Out the Lights", which is put across with practised insouciance by a pucker-faced, still-out-of-this-world-after-all-these-years Kitt, who also plays the movie's devious diva Yzma. "My Funny Friend and Me", Emperor's end-title song and the record's first single, presents a more familiar Sting, and not only because he is its singer. Soundwise, it hardly strays from the artist's huge-selling adult-skewed ballads--his bread and butter in recent years--and as such, it, along with the tender duet "One Day She'll Love Me", grips the potential to send this record racing up the charts. --Tammy La Gorce

I'd say this is one of my most favourite Disney soundtracks and I own lots! A fantastic blend of romantic ballad type songs and funky upbeat tunes like "Perfect World" and great sing-a-long songs like "Snuff Out The Light" (yes I do sing-a-long LOL). This one is quite different from the more sentimental and romantic Disney soundtracks and has more upbeat tunes than a lot of other Disney soundtracks. A must for every one- not just for kids - after all I'm 19 years old LOL!

Bought this soundtrack simply for "My Funny Friend and Me" by Sting. I've been an avid Sting fan for years and this is a fantastic yet emotional song. Recommend this CD to anyone - Captures the comedy of the film along with the musical highlights. 5 Stars!

Although expectations were high, this album delivers not what was expected. The songs lack every kind of enthusiasm and are actually quite boring. Sting really dissappointed here and although it has taken him years to complete it, the result doesn't sound like it. Unlike the movie itself, this is a typical Disney CD, easy tunes, boring lyrics, in short: only for die hard Sting fans and small children.
