Barnes & Noble - Moira McCormick
Spun off the insanely popular Japanese video game and animated TV series about a trio of kids and the fascinating creatures they alternately track, befriend, and battle, this album's a can't-miss item with the Pokémon masters of your own domain. For the most part, it's pleasant if generic pop-R&B (with, frankly, a few too many ballads), thirteen tunes inspired by some aspect of the Pokémon phenomenon: "2.B. A. Master," for instance, runs down all existing classifications of the critters (grass, fire, electric, water, etc.).

Spun off the insanely popular Japanese video game and animated TV series about a trio of kids and the fascinating creatures they alternately track, befriend, and battle, this album's a can't-miss item with the Pokémon masters of your own domain. For the most part, it's pleasant if generic pop-R&B (with, frankly, a few too many ballads), thirteen tunes inspired by some aspect of the Pokémon phenomenon: "2.B. A.

There's even an amusing number, "Double Trouble," performed by the hilariously inept enemy trio known as Team Rocket. The real draw here, though, is the entire "PokéRAP." As the regular bit that closes the "Pokémon" TV show each weekday, "PokéRAP" names 150 known species of Pokémon in hip-hop style, but the song's divided into five different parts. Here, though, is the whole enchilada, with printed lyrics too (which helps enormously if, like me, you tend to get stuck learning the one that goes, "Kabuto, Persian, Paras, Horsea, Raticate, Magnemite, Kadabra, Weepinbell...") As a bonus, the "PokéRAP" video portion can be viewed on the enhanced CD version.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Pokemon trainers of all ages will enjoy the soundtrack from their favorite cartoon. Along with the show's theme and "PokeRap," 11 previously unreleased songs appear, including "2.B.A. Master," "Misty's Song," and "The Time Has Come (Pikachu's Goodbye)." The enhanced CD contains a video for "PokeRap" and includes a 15 dollar Nintendo Game Boy rebate coupon.

    A great CD for Pokemon enthusiasts and kids of all ages!

    This CD was just incredible! I had only heard a few of the Pikachu's Jukebox songs before I purchased the CD, so I wasn't sure what kind of music I was going to get. But when I popped it into my CD player, I was totally blown away! All those Jukebox songs, as well as the title theme, have been expanded to full-length (3 to 4 minutes long)songs. They're not too repetitive, yet easy enough to sing along to (thanks to the enclosed lyrics sheet!). The enhanced CD PokeRap is great too! My favorite tracks are #9 (The Team Rocket song- probably the most amusing track) and #11 (Misty's Song- ever wonder how Misty feels about Ash? This explains it from her perspective! Excellent for romantics everywhere!). Even if you're not completely obsessed with Pokemon, but have watched the show a few times, I recommend buying the CD- it's definitely a great collection of music, with a variety of fun, upbeat songs (and a few slow ones). You'll have difficulty replacing this one in your CD player!

    This is a great CD!

    This is a great CD! Misty's Song confirms everything we've been wondering since she was introduced into the show. The Time Has Come(Pikachu's Goodbye), Together Forever, Misty's Song and You Can Do It(If You Really Try) are my favorite songs.

    A soundtrack worth getting

    I'm 19 but I find this soundtrack very entertaining. Pokemon is a tv show that is no longer shown in my area but It is good to know it is as popular today as it was since day one. This soundtrack has very good songs and I consider it one of the best soundtracks ever. My favorite songs are tracks 1,5, and all of side B. Misty's song gives us what we all knew from day one. The love each other but are to shy to admit it. And Pikachu's Goodbye is a sad song but is one of the best on the soundtrack.

    Colette a 13-yearold poke'maniac

    This cd rocks, I could listen to it all day and I love it when they show a video after the show. Though I have two wishes,I wish they would make a video for Misty's song and I wish they would make another cd with only love songs,pertaining to the characters like Misty's song.
