What's the story?

In CHEETAH GIRLS 2, the indelibly adorable girls are back, chirping merrily about friendship, individuality, and self-esteem -- all set to irresistibly rockin' (if overly synthesized) beats, with a little help from some famous and talented friends.The Cheetah Girls began as a Disney Channel Original Movie based on a best-selling book series for kids and tweens. This soundtrack of the sequel tracks the aspiring rock stars, led by the amazing Raven-Symone (as Galleria), as they wind up in Barcelona. Raven-Symone takes the lead on a few cuts, and special guest Belinda Peregrin contributes wonderful Spanish-language vocals, but most of the heavy lifting is done in ensemble by Adrienne Bailon (as Chanel), Sabrina Bryan (as Dorinda), and Kiely Williams (as Aquanette).

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

The (uncredited) musicians who provide the instrumental tracks are excellent, delivering surprising accordion fills and delicious piano work. Most of the lyrics are upbeat and friendly. "You don't have to be like anybody else/So what's the problem, why can't you be like yourself/You're individual, you might as well let it show/Because you're beautiful just the way you are" ("Do Your Own Thing") and "We're sisters, we stand together/We make up one big family though we don't look the same" ("Cheetah Sisters") are typical, providing uplifting girl-power messages with the subtlety of a sledgehammer.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the values expressed, and whether or not songs (or other art forms) can really help you develop self-esteem by hitting you over the head with a message. You can also talk about the different Cheetah girls and their personalities. Which one is most like you?
