Overview

A savvy, bestselling sing-along album that takes its inspiration from the kind of upbeat contemporary radio hits that fuel Radio Disney, Kidz Bop features 18 remade hits sung by kids and a few adults. Nearly all the songs here are faithfully rendered and retain the catchy hooks that made them irresistible in the first place. So while older music fans may do a double take at the sound of unfamiliar voices, younger listeners probably won't know the difference between the originals and the covers. The children's energetic voices work best on some of the catchiest rock: Smash Mouth's brilliant "All Star" and Sugar Ray's hooky, hip-pop "Fly." Some may balk at the very idea of kids singing along to Britney Spears' "Oops! I Did It Again" or the sweetly innocent "Kiss Me," but Kidz Bop is about as upbeat and hit-heavy a collection as pre-teeny-boppers -- and their parents -- could ever want.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
A very literal singalong album, Kidz Bop collects 18 remakes of contemporary hits that also feature a chorus of kids singing along with the hooks. Generally, punk-pop songs like the covers of blink-182's "All the Small Things," Sugar Ray's "Fly," and Smash Mouth's invincible "All Star" fare the best as singalong material for kids, as do nonsensical hits like LFO's "Summer Girls" and Barenaked Ladies' "One Week." For the most part, Kidz Bop provides parents with a safe collection of pop music for their kids.

Everyone who is in Kids Bop is just a big fat wanna be of the orginal artist. They act so incredibly stupid on the commercials. Kids Bop reeks. Don't waste your money on this terrible junk-buy the orginal instead. They are actully famed and well liked! They ruin well liked and fun songs but they're horrible, pre-mature, squeaky, fake voices. I don't recommend this to anyone.

This CD is okay, but it's not great.

As I ordered ''Kidz Bop,'' I wasn't expecting much from this cavalcade of pop masterpieces, but boy was I wrong. As soon as I had finished listening to the first song, I knew I had stumbled upon audio gold. I quickly rushed out to buy as much canned food as my El Camino could hold, because I knew I was going to be listening to ''Kidz Bop'' for a really long time. I shut all my curtains, locked all my doors, put my headphones on and melted under the soothing sounds of ''Kiss Me'' and ''I'm Real'' and ''Hangin' by a Moment'' as my leg muscles slowly began to atrophy. Thanks ''Kidz Bop''!

Hi, It's Wesley again, except now I'm ten years old. I would like to say that this CD is really good!!! Except after listening to it it gets kinda boring... I don't listen to it much anymore. But when it's new, you'll like it. It just get's kinda old.

Well the kidz bop stuff was annoying the heck out of me with their commercials, so i came to hear some samples. I litterally almost cried after hearing how they destroyed pretty cool songs. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS TRASH!!!!!! Too bad there's nothing lower than 1 star.
