What's the story?
GIRLZ ROCK features 15 perky tracks performed by young women and featured in recent Disney movies. The material is all absolutely family-safe; the only danger here is that you may already have many of these songs on other compilations. But let's say this is your first Disney girl-power purchase. It's a fine one to start with, as it features some of the brightest young female Disney stars performing familiar songs from recent hit movies. High points are Raven Symone's understated cover of Stevie Wonder's \"Superstition,\" the Duff sisters' surprisingly adorable take on the Go-Gos' \"Our Lips Are Sealed,\" and Myra's uplifting show-closer, \"Miracles Happen.\"
Is it any good?
The two Disney inevitabilities -- excellent production standards and an empowering you-can-do-it message -- are strongly in evidence. The instrumental tracks, anonymous as always, are flawless (wouldn't it be fun to know who these terrific studio players are)? And as always, it's rockin' family fun.
