Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that in the growing market for sanitized albums of tween tunes that preserve a rocking beat while erasing sexual innuendo, this CD is less diligent than some of its competitors in keeping it squeaky clean.
What's the story?
TOP POP 2 boasts that it's a collection of \"chart toppers carefully selected for kids of all ages.\" But it's certainly up for discussion whether every song is a chart topper and just how appropriate songs are for all ages. For example, in \"Rock Your Body,\" Justin Timberlake's original lyrics, \"Better have you naked by the end of this song\" have been sufficiently scubbed to \"Gonna have you dancin' by the end of this song.\" But then why has the reference to \"Miss J's big butt\" in \"Intuition\" been left in, or the hint of unwed pregnancy in \"Sk8ter Boi\"?
Is it any good?
Some folks might dispute that every song is a chart topper, while others might complain that the selection could have been a bit more sanitized. Certainly the lyrics, while cleaned up on some tracks, remain objectionable on others.
