What's the story?

PHINEAS AND FERB: ACROSS THE 1ST AND 2ND DIMENSIONS SOUNDTRACK lets fans enjoy 22 songs from the hit animated kids' TV show, as well as tunes from the feature-length movie Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension. The album includes favorites like "Summer (Where Do We Begin?)," "Perfect Day," and "Perry the Platypus."

Is it any good?


When they accidentally stumble upon another dimension of Danville, Phineas and Ferb find themselves on a zany adventure. The music takes you along for the ride with the usual clever brand of P&F lyrics and funky pop, rock, rap, disco, and even evil singing from a delusional scientist. Fans will love the bluesy "Rollercoaster," Candace's rhyming skillz in "Come Home, Perry," and Love Handel's "Robot Riot."


The genius of the show is that it caters to all ages, and the same goes for the music; parents shouldn't feel guilty about adding this soundtrack to their playlists.

Great Soundtrack!

The music is great! However there are some songs that should have been included like Summer Belongs To You.

You won't be able to get these songs out of your head.

This is a cute CD of songs from the new movie (2nd dimension) plus the episode called Rollercoaster: The Musical. There are a few annoying ones but for the most part it's good fun. Very catchy and the kids love it.
