( 12 )

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
The Lion King soundtrack roars back to life with a bonus track, "The Morning Report" -- sung by Jeff Bennett, James Earl Jones, and Evan Saucedo -- and a remix of Elton John's "Can You Feel the Love Tonight." The sweeping score from Hans Zimmer, divided into four brief segments ("This Land," "...to Die For," "Under The Stars," "King of Pride Rock") remains as grandiose as ever and will ring familiar to the many King fans. Experience the musical majesty of this award-winning disc and you’ll be humming "Hakuna Matata" in no time.

    Classic soundtrack

    This is still one of the best soundtracks of all time.The songs are excellent, and they are beautifully performed. The instrumentals are even better, thanks to Hans Zimmer.His underscore and arrangements of the songs are masterful!And it's got the best opening number since "West Side Story"!

    Special Edition isn't all that special...

    Although "The Lion King" and its music can be given 6 out of 5 stars, this so called "Special Edition" lacks the luster that the "Beauty and the Beast" special edition soundtrack had. Early demos and alternate tracks were added to the "Beast" soundtrack, while the only thing "special" about this CD are "The Morning Report" (the new song that appears in the Special Edition of the film, which isn't all that great) and a very well done remix of Elton John's "Can You Feel The Love Tonight". If you are trying to choose between the original and special edition soundtracks, choose this one. After all, it does give you 2 extra songs.
