A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this music.

Positive Messages

Inappropriate behavior is not suggested.

Violence & Scariness

There are no violent images.

Sexy Stuff

References are infrequent and limited to pleas for kisses.

Language

Any eyebrow-lifting language from the originals tends to be sanitized.

Consumerism

Although "Basketball" refers to a brand name or two, it is an exception.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

There are no references to drugs or alcohol.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that nothing in this album is toxic, and some of it may inspire young kids to sing along. If so, parents may need to ask themselves if they really want to hear their 6 year olds shout out the lyrics to songs like Kelly Clarkson's "A Moment Like This" ("So tell me that you don't think I'm crazy/ When I tell you love has come here and now/ A moment like this/ Some people wait a lifetime for a moment like this/ Some people search forever for that one special kiss").

What's the story?

It was only a matter of time before Radio Disney would decide to compete head to head with Razor & Tie's Kidz Bop albums, which climbed steadily up the Billboard charts with nary a squeak from the Mouse. This Disney entrée --SUPERSTAR KIDZ -- is unlikely to vault dramatically into first place, but its quartet of almost-unknown preteens sing tunes made popular by the likes of Avril Lavigne (\"Sk8er Boi,\" \"Complicated\"), Kelly Clarkson (\"Miss Independent\"), Jennifer Lopez (\"Jenny From The Block\"), and Smash Mouth (the ubiquitous \"All Star\"), sure to please the same audience who enjoyed the style of their Kidz Bop rivals.

Is it any good?

Questionable lyrics on Superstar Kidz are sanitized or tweaked, accompaniment tends to be synthetic yet simple, and the preteen chorus is competent but rarely impassioned. Like the Kidz Bop singers, the Disney foursome is credited; but also like them, they'll likely change with each new album, as Radio Disney searches for new "stars" from its Radio Disney audience.
