Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam Soundtrack
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this soundtrack is a lot like the first Camp Rock soundtrack, and most Disney records, for that matter: it avoids adult content and explicit language, focusing mostly on upbeat themes, like friendship, that are entirely suited for younger kids.
What's the story?
CAMP ROCK 2: THE FINAL JAM is a collection of 15 tunes from the second installment in Disney's Camp Rock movie series, featuring mammoth stars Demi Lovato and the Jonas Brothers. Mirroring the battle-of-the-bands storyline of the second movie, the soundtrack includes songs with some wholesome boasting about being the best -- along with other tracks about the typical trials and tribulations of growing up and young romance. As is usually the case with music by Disney's stars, there's nothing offensive in the way of mature content or graphic language here, making the record more than appropriate for younger audiences.
Is it any good?
Though most of the songs on this compilation come from Camp Rock's main stars, Lovato and the JoBros, the record also includes a couple of tunes from other stars of the film, like R&B artist Matthew "Mdot" Finley and pop singer Meaghan Martin. All of these young artists put in respectable performances, churning out the type of pop-infused songs with the mass appeal that their tween fans love.
