What's the story?
Has Skye Sweetman watched a few too many Avril Lavigne videos? Who cares? Like most of the cast on RADIO DISNEY JAMS VOL. 7, she delivers a delightful performance on \"Tangled Up in Me,\" both on the CD itself and the enclosed bonus video DVD. Other high points are \"Geek Love (Oh My Gosh Version)\" by fan_3, in which the hot girl falls for the geeky guy, and Raven-Symone's remedial-boyfriend instruction manual, \"Backflip.\" Heartthrob-in-training Jesse McCartney provides the adolescent mush with a sentimental ballad, \"Because You Live,\" and Smash Mouth comes through with infectious punk-infusion on \"Come On, Come On.\"
Is it any good?
There are no surprises on this CD, but it is well-mastered and nicely sequenced. Disney's usual excellent production standards go far to make up for all that may be lacking in the originality department, and this collection comes off as a fun, family-safe showcase of some adorable young performers with a lot of talent and gently positive, occasionally instructional messages. You -- and your kids -- could pick worse role models.
