4.0 out of 5 stars A Little Golden Nugget April 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is that rare Disney Animated Feature Soundtrack that is best appreciated apart from the visuals in the film. When I first saw HOME ON THE RANGE in the theatre, my disappointment in the story and characterizations negatively affected my appreciation of the music. But since I can't have an incomplete collection of Disney soundtracks, I bought the CD anyways. Now I find myself listening to this music daily.
Alan Menken has written an exciting and tender score for HOME ON THE RANGE and his compositions are my favorite aspect of this soundtrack. Cue up "On The Farm" and listen how he weaves multiple themes together. The lyrics by Glen Slater are very good for the most part, but I wont fault him for some of my complaints because he keeps things right in line with the style of the story. Music and lyrics gel perfectly though on "Little Patch of Heaven" (sung perfectly by kd lang and my favorite track) and "Will the Sun Ever Shine Again" a ballad that seemed trite in the film but is far more engaging on it's own. "Wherever the Trail May Lead" by Tim McGraw is preformed a bit too country-popish for my tastes, but the melody and lyrics are strong and he manages to rope things in before he loses control. The Beu Sisters aren't nearly as successful with their version of "Anytime You Need a Friend" which sounds like every other teeny pop group ever heard. Menken's version of the same song takes a more emotional approach, which works much better for the song, but Menken's voice can't convey the emotion he is trying to achieve.
If you didn't care for the music in HOME ON THE RANGE when you saw the film, give it another chance, you'll probably be as surprised as I was when listening to this CD for the first time. You don't have to be a fan of country music to enjoy this surprising soundtrack.

4.0 out of 5 stars good music, good movie April 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
First of all, go see the movie. It's funny.
The album is an excellent representation of the music from the movie, which was written by Alan Menken. In case you're not familiar with his work, here's a resume: The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Hercules. Excepting that last one, they are excellent musicals all. Home on the Range isn't as good as, say, Mermaid, Beast, or Aladdin, but it's as good as all of the others (and way better than Hercules).
The songs are excellent, with "Little Patch of Heaven" being the best of the lot. k.d. lang's performance of that song is excellent, as is Randy Quaid's on the yodel song. Even better is the score, which has a very rich feel to it and is one of the best Menken has yet provided for Disney. If you have enjoyed his previous Disney films, then I think this soundtrack is a solid purchase for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful music! May 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
The music from "Home on the Range" was much more than I expected! I loved the songs, especially the ones sung by kd lang and Tim McGraw.
Kd lang's voice is so beautiful and lilting in "Little Patch of Heaven," and it fits extremely well with the feel of this film. McGraw also does a great job with his sensitive performance of "Wherever the Trail May Lead," played during the film's credits.
Alan Menken deserves a lot of credit for this creative and funny soundtrack. Even though this movie was overlooked and not incredibly popular at the box office, the music deserves some awards! I loved the movie and the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Home on the Range April 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
I am a huge Tim McGraw fan and purchased this record for his song "Wherever the Trail May Lead." (Which incidentally would be a great wedding reception song.) But I also really enjoyed the songs by the other artists, especially "Will the Sun Ever Shine Again?" by Bonnie Raitt. The chorus and score are also a fun listen. This is a good CD to pop in the car with the kids for everyone to enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just plain fun April 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
This CD has talented music. Don't do what I did and under-estimate it because it is a cartoon. I was more than surprised when I heard the quality of music contained within this CD. I especially like Tim McGraw. I find myself listening to this every moring on the way to work. I love it!
