Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that most of these fun, friendly songs appear on many other CDs and compilations. Make sure you don't already have the whole collection before buying. Also, be prepared for some typical Disney marketing.

What's the story?

RADIO DISNEY JAMS VOL. 8 includes a DVD showing five of the artists performing "live" tracks from the album. Some of these videos are pretty imaginative, combining real-life video of one clean-cut performer after another with clever animation. (An exception is the silly Aly & AJ video, with lip synching so inept it's funny.) The CD includes songs by Jesse McCartney, Rihanna, Hilary Duff, The Click Five, Everlife, Avril Lavigne, and other sure-shots.

Is it any good?


The audio CD includes many of the most recent teen pop chart-toppers, and includes one infectiously irresistible tune after another -- guaranteed to be a favorite with young Radio Disney fans. Great for a long car trip or family dance party, just make sure, before buying, that you don't already have these songs on other compilations.

The best Radio Disney CD, in my opinion!

I have this CD and would listen to it over any of the new Radio Disney series installments anyday. These songs are epic. My favourite is How Do I Feel by Hoku and Vacation by Vitamin C. Some of the songs, like Dancing In The Street by Myra (I remember this song was covered to promote the Recess movie! I remember it being a really popular song when I was a kid!) and All Star by Smash Mouth, are really nostalgic. This CD is definitely one you won't want to miss.
