Overview

Baby's Best: Music Box is a three-disc collection of lullabies and singalongs. Disc one and three feature originals and new age-styled old favorites performed and arranged by John St. John. While the material can be quite bland, it is definitely soothing and lush, and St. John lessens the saccharine quality of it a bit by employing the warm tones of a cello, nylon string guitar, and the clicking tones of a music box. These nods to creativity are welcome in a genre that too often maligns itself with poorly arranged and sloppily performed material that will make people of any age screw up their face in disgust. Unfortunately for Baby's Best: Music Box, the engaging St. John performances of discs one and three are undercut a bit by disc two. A conventional singalong collection that features the cheery/annoyingly precocious Countdown Kids, its unimaginative backing tracks and overdone vocals are pretty hard to take after the lulling dreamscapes of St. John's work. It's fortunate that the set is broken up into three distinct discs -- that way, the listener can decide the order of play.
