All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Groove to the Music follows The Backyardigans almost an exact year to the date with 18 additional songs pulled directly from episodes of The Backyardigans. Smart, fun, and (perhaps just as important) not nearly as potentially annoying as the average disc of children's music, the songs consistently switch styles through several eras and are engaging (whether you're a child or a parent) without fault. They're all 90 seconds to two minutes in length and never sound formulaic, despite a steady amount of boisterous -- but sugar-powered -- energy. Highlights include "Ski Patrol to the Rescue," "Rad Moves," "Hold on Tight," "Shake Your Body," "The Ballad of the Brave Pink ...

Evan Lurie, the show's musical director, is probably the best thing that ever happened to children's music; Oswald: Pop Goes the Octopus also involves his work and is a soothing alternate that involves the use of more woodwinds and light piano play.

    granddaughter loves the lively music

    I purchased this for my 4 yr. old granddaughter and she just loves the lively music. I like the instilling of the use of imagination that the Backyardigans use. Good investment.

    My daughter (who's 2 1/2) loves the entire CD. Typically when we have to listen to kid's music in the car, it's one of the Backyardigans CDs, because, even after repeated playings, they don't get on your nerves like a lot of kids music. There are a couple of tracks on here that I try to skip if my daughter doesn't catch me first - "Gotta Get the Job Done" and "Oh My Sherman" - the first isn't all that bad, just not a favorite (though still catchy), and the second I just don't like - it doesn't even have a catchy-ness to it like the rest of the songs. But all in all, that's about 3 minute's worth of the CD, so not real loss. My personal favorites are ones that my older daughter (a 14 year old) and I can also sing along with (and enjoyably, too !) - Drumming Song, Tree to Tree, and Hold on Tight - all very catchy and fun and upbeat, and they make you happy when you sing along.
