Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the soundtrack from the Disney movie Frozen is full of funny and sometimes uplifting music that celebrates acceptance and the power of love. With no iffy language, only one vague reference to alcohol, and mild talk about love and relationships, the soundtrack is OK for young kids and up.
What's the story?
The soundtrack from Frozen features 10 songs written and composed by Robert Lopez (best known for The Book of Mormon) and his wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez. The cast features talented Broadway star Idina Menzell as Elsa and actress Kristen Bell as Anna. The soundtrack also features Demi Lovato's version of the song "Let it Go."
Is it any good?
The music from Frozen is reminiscent of the golden days of Disney when the studio produced memorable songs such as "Beauty and the Beast," "A Whole New World," and "Under the Sea." The soundtrack is a wonderful mix of poignancy and humor with such lines as "Don't know if I'm elated or gassy / But I'm somewhere in that zone" and "Her quote 'engagement' is a flex arrangement."
The talented cast also does an amazing job bringing the different characters' personalities to life through song. Jonathan Groff captures Olaf's neurotic optimism in the hopeful tune "In Summer," and Kristen Bell showcases a surprisingly decent voice. But the real star is Idina Menzel, who'll give you chills on the soundtrack's best track, "Let It Go." Whether you've seen the movie or not, kids and adults alike will love this soundtrack.
