Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this soundtrack offers pleasant rock with messages of diversity and empowerment. The only downside is the overt commercialism, with TV show, video, and book tie-ins.

What's the story?

There's not much to THE CHEETAH GIRLS SOUNDTRACK, a CD of tunes from the Cheetah Girls' Disney Channel movie. Perky and upbeat, with a squeaky-clean message of diversity, independence, and empowerment, the girls make fine role models for young fans. (But be warned -- girls who loved the TV movie might be disappointed with the CD and its packaging: only eight tunes and no liner notes or personal information about the Cheetah Girls.)

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

Raven, Sobrina Bryan, Adrienne Bailon, and Kelly Williams do a fine job on vocals, but lackluster production values make the whole thing sound prefabricated and unexceptional. The Cheetah Girls are adorable, and it's great that their "girl-power" message comes through loud and clear. But in a perfect world, more attention would be paid to the musical presentation as well. Young fans deserve better than this; we need role models with musical, as well as social, integrity.

Awesome CD

What the hek? People here have said bad things about the cheetah girls. Guys its the CHEETAH GIRLS!!! The Cheetah Girls are great role models and they're songs are good. Just because it talks about girl power doesn't make it a bad CD. It shows girls that they need to show what they're made of. Its very appropriate. The movies are great too!
