A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that a couple of songs on this Nick TV show soundtrack are about daydreaming about a relationship with a best friend's brother, a cheating boyfriend, and revenge, so while the overall content and lyrics are clean, the songs are best for older kids or fans of the show.

What's the story?
Is it any good?
Justice is yet another teenager in a long list of TV starlets who sing -- but the difference is that she actually can sing. Although the lyrics and music on the Victorious Soundtrack are typical tween pop fluff, Justice's vocals are mature and expressive. Standouts include the Jackson 5 cover "I Want You Back," and "All I Want Is Everything," a fast-paced, power-anthem about believing in yourself and giving your best.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about shows -- like Victorious -- about regular people "trying to be stars." Do you think our culture is too obsessed with celebrities and being famous? Do you think that's why reality shows are so popular?
Although Victoria Justice is still a teen, she, like many young stars, is often presented to seem older, with lots of make-up and sexy clothes. What kind of message do you think this image sends to young girls and teenagers?
Would you buy this soundtrack if you weren't a fan of the TV show? Does the music make you want to watch the show?
