Barnes & Noble - Amy Barkat
O Brother! The success of the multi-platinum O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack ignited a nationwide bluegrass fever -- the cure to which appears to be more of that high lonesome sound. Sweetening the medicine even further, Disney presents a collection of its classic movie songs with a down-home, banjo-fueled makeover. It's hard to decide what is more exciting about O Mickey, Where Art Thou?: hearing Disney favorites with a whole new sound or hearing bluegrass and country artists embracing these treasured songs with such ease and skill. In any case, this spirited disc does not disappoint. Setting the tone is "Circle of Life," from The Lion King, jubilantly rendered by ...

O Brother! The success of the multi-platinum O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack ignited a nationwide bluegrass fever -- the cure to which appears to be more of that high lonesome sound. Sweetening the medicine even further, Disney presents a collection of its classic movie songs with a down-home, banjo-fueled makeover. It's hard to decide what is more exciting about O Mickey, Where Art Thou?: hearing Disney favorites with a whole new sound or hearing bluegrass and country artists embracing these treasured songs with such ease and skill. In any case, this spirited disc does not disappoint. Setting the tone is "Circle of Life," from The Lion King, jubilantly rendered by country rocker Collin Raye, who interweaves elements of the bluegrass standard "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" to connect past and present. Kevin Montgomery, another country rocker, retains the compassion of Phil Collins's Tarzan hit "You'll Be in My Heart," assisted by sweet harmonies and an arrangement rich in banjo, Dobro, fiddle, and mandolin. The innate energy and zip of instrumental bluegrass gets its day with a wordless take on the Mary Poppins tongue-twister "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," featuring rousing solos from fiddle virtuoso Aubrie Haynie and New Grass Revivalist Sam Bush on mandolin -- try dancing to this fast-paced ditty, and you just may bust a hip! After that, you'll want to take it down a notch with the "The Bare Necessities" from The Jungle Book, sung by Grand Ole Opry stalwart Stonewall Jackson, who lends his own wisdom and deep voice to this playful tune. This phenomenal disc ends with a hearth-worn version of "When You Wish Upon a Star," from Pinocchio, sung by '70s country hit maker Ronnie Milsap, whose soothing voice is both comforting and uplifting. It's a fitting finale, as this impressive collection pays tribute not only to Disney but also to the style and staying power of bluegrass.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Combining the enduring popularity of the songs from Disney movies with the current craze for bluegrass and old-timey music, O Mickey, Where Art Thou? presents Disney standards as performed by country and bluegrass performers. Not surprisingly for such a high-concept album, the results are something of a mixed bag; the dueling-banjos rendition of "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" is inspired, as is the similar treatment given to "Mickey Mouse Club March/The Ballad of Davy Crocket." Elizabeth Cook's "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah," Robbie Fulks' "When I See an Elephant Fly," and Stonewall Jackson's "The Bare Necessities" have fun with the clever wordplay in the songs and sound natural performed in the old-timey style; likewise, Collin Raye's "Circle of Life," Charlie Louvin's "I Will Go Sailing No More," and Ronnie Milsap's "When You Wish Upon a Star" also work especially well. The songs that aren't as successful certainly aren't bad, but don't really gain as much from their makeovers as the rest of the album. In particular, ballads like "Baby Mine" and "When She Loved Me" suffer the most from the slightly over-produced sound that keeps the album from sounding genuinely old-timey. Still, O Mickey, Where Art Thou? is a creative and entertaining album that should please both parents and kids.
