What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this is a kid-friendly collection of perky songs featuring Raven Symone, as well as some other heavy-hitters. One downside: Kids will be greeted by a Disney interface when they pop the CD in the computer and asked to sign up for a mailing list -- but they can get around this.

Good CD

I think its a pretty good CD for kids who would want to listen to Raven. I havent listened to all of it but most of it is suted for kids my age.

What's the story?

With most CDs, your computer's default media player starts the music automatically, right? Not so with THAT'S SO RAVEN TOO! Instead, an interface asks if you want to sign up for a mailing list and Internet options. Once again, the Disney marketing machine is set on \"Overkill\" mode, doing its best to roll over the lively, perky fun. Get past the marketers though (we started our player manually to do so) and you'll find a delightful collection of songs performed by terrific singers. Light-hearted and danceable, about half the songs feature Raven Symone on lead or duet vocals; the rest features the likes of Jesse McCartney, Aly & AJ, and even Aretha Franklin. This collection provides enough variety to be enjoyed by kids even if they are not fans of the popular TV show.

Is it any good?

High points include the amazing Aretha Franklin, of course, on "Respect" and the infectiously danceable "Let's Groove" by B5. That's So Raven, Too! provides the perfect pajama-party or tween dance party ambiance. And you can play it without signing up for Disney's mailing list.
