Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Dave Gil de Rubio
For Disney's retelling of Meg Cabot's novel The Princess Diaries, newcomer Anne Hathaway portrays Mia Thermopolis, an ugly duckling who turns out to be a royal swan and heir apparent to the throne of a small European country. Given that the target audience for this fanciful yarn is prepubescent girls, the film's soundtrack bubbles over with plenty of frothy pop from some of MTV's favorite teen idols. Among the best-known names crashing this musical slumber party are the Backstreet Boys, with the original ballad "What Makes You Different Makes You Beautiful," Brit babes BBmak with the wide-eyed lament "Miss You More," Hanson with the jangly "Wake Up," and B*Witched ...

For Disney's retelling of Meg Cabot's novel The Princess Diaries, newcomer Anne Hathaway portrays Mia Thermopolis, an ugly duckling who turns out to be a royal swan and heir apparent to the throne of a small European country. Given that the target audience for this fanciful yarn is prepubescent girls, the film's soundtrack bubbles over with plenty of frothy pop from some of MTV's favorite teen idols. Among the best-known names crashing this musical slumber party are the Backstreet Boys, with the original ballad "What Makes You Different Makes You Beautiful," Brit babes BBmak with the wide-eyed lament "Miss You More," Hanson with the jangly "Wake Up," and B*Witched with the chugging, harmony-rich "Hold On." The party continues with clever covers of popular tunes such as Aaron Carter's rendition of Thurston Harris's finger-snapping "Little Bitty Pretty One," Nobody's Angel's take on Salt-N-Pepa's "Ain't Nothin' but a She Thing," and Diaries costar Mandy Moore with her version of Connie Francis's chirpy "Stupid Cupid." A few promising newcomers also turn up, including Backstreet Boys protégée Krystal, whose energized vocals on the catchy "Super Girl" rival Christina Aguilera's powerful pipes, and Disney discovery Myra, who shows that girls just wanna have fun on the bouncy, Eurobeat-flavored "Miracles Happen." With this much bubblegum royalty assembled on one disc, The Princess Diaries is a regal soundtrack.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
The original soundtrack to Gary Marshall's teen makeover fantasy The Princess Diaries features teen pop galore from the likes of Krystal Harris, Youngstown, and B*Witched. While most of the album consists of slick, virtually interchangeable singles like Myra's "Miracles Happen" and Steps' "Happy Go Lucky," a few tracks, for better or worse, are particularly distinctive. Aaron Carter and Mandy Moore tackle "Little Bitty Pretty One" and "Stupid Cupid," respectively, in misguided attempts to update the songs. However, the cold productions and clunky rhythms on both covers make them almost unlistenable. Fortunately, Melissa Lefton's "I Love Life," BBMak's "Miss You More," and 3Gs' "Crush" suggest that there's some hope for teen pop's future; the genre's most venerable acts, Hanson and the Backstreet Boys, each turn in decent if unremarkable tracks in "Wake Up" and "What Makes You Different (Makes You Beautiful)"-- a philosophy that both The Princess Diaries and its soundtrack could have used more of.

    Cool pop music soundtrack.

    One of the best soundtracks of the summer, in my own personal opinion. There are some really great tracks on this CD from artists such as Backstreet Boys, Aaron Carter, Krystal, BBMak, Mandy Moore, Myra, Youngstown, and Steps. A lot of people buy this soundtrack for the new Hanson song, but it really isn't all that. It has mostly pop music, a little bit of rap, and a little bit of rock. But most of it's pop. It probably isn't for those who despise pop and love hard rock, but it's definitely for those who love pop music. I, for one, love pop music. So I'm one of those who likes this soundtrack. Also check out the film - it's great, too! :-)

    awesome music

    this CD is awesome from start to finish. It may be a bit too pop-ish for some people who are into the harder rock. But I'd say it fits the movie as a whole. The reviewer above was right--it does fit the pre-pubescent age. Mells

    Isn't there one missing?

    Some of the songs are worth listening to. others are not music- they are noise. But hey- you know in the movie when Mia is at the ball and she's seeing if Michael is there so she can dance with him? What is the music there while she is turning to look for him? I didn't hear it on the list!!

    This is the coolest!!!!!!!

    This CD totally rox! If you enjoy BBMak, Mandy Moore, Krystal, Myra, they so totally rock! They have such talent in music! Go see the movie NOW if you haven't seen it before, because it might go in video soon, but it's always better to see it in the movie theatres because they have more sound.

    oh yeah, baby!

    I love this soundtrack! And, yes, the music did go great with the movie, too. There are so many talented and great performers on it and it has an awesome mix. From up-beat songs to a little more mellow ones, they're all wonderful. Cheers to this CD :-)
