All Music Guide
Like a version of Now That's What I Call Music overrun by children, the unstoppable Kidz Bop series features youngsters singing pop hits while backed by adult musicians and vocalists. On Kidz Bop, Vol. 8 the kids get particularly rambunctious on U2's surging "Vertigo" and, oddly enough, Franz Ferdinand's post-punk single "Take Me Out," which features enthusiastic shouting at random intervals. For other tracks, the Kidz Bop crew mellows out a bit, most notably on the Frankie J slow jam "Obsession No Es Amor" and Gwen Stefani's shuffling "Rich Girl," while Avril Lavigne's "Nobody's Home" allows the ensemble to take on a sad yet soaring power ballad.

    Why do they keep on?

    I think it's nice that they give kids and opportunity to sing on a "real CD." But all the songs are ruined! They are loud when the song is supposed to be quiet, they add and take out minor parts, and the original recordings are so much better! If they had the actual artisits singing, it might be decent.
