Product Description

Amazon.ca

Lea Salonga, best known as the voice of Jasmine in Aladdin, steals the show here as the title character in Disney's Mulan. The former star of Miss Saigon adds touching elements to the feature, especially on introspective numbers such as "Reflection." Unfortunately, the voice of Donny Osmond, relegated to anthems such as "I'll Make a Man Out of You" doesn't really enhance the story line, a saga set in ancient China. Jerry Goldsmith provides the Far East tinge to the score, almost reminiscent of early Les Baxter. While Mulan is a far cry from the memorable Beauty and the Beast, it is both funny and charming. --Jason Verlinde

1.0 out of 5 stars A potential masterpiece, ruined June 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
I would have given this CD at least three stars, maybe even five, if Disney didn't cut it up. Maybe I'm over-reacting but I bought this soundtrack for one reason and one reason only: the score that plays when Mulan lights the incense and prays to her ancestors, cuts her hair, and dons her father's armor. Well, that little synth piece was slashed right out!! Yeah, sure the rest of the music isn't all that bad, but this omission ruins everything!! EVERYTHING!!! I wasn't even sure I wanted to buy an entire soundtrack for just one song, and I didn't even get what I paid for.
This review may be of no use to you, but before you ever buy a soundtrack again, make sure you get every piece of info on it first.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great Disney soundtrack Nov. 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
Mulan was a fantastic Disney movie. It returned Disney to it's success of animated movies, something it had lacked over the last couple of years.
Jerry Goldsmith has written a fantastic score. It accents the movie very well. It has a nice oriental tune. It's some of the better work he has ever done.
I liked Be True to Your Heart by 98 degrees. It's a well sung song by a good pop group. The vocals are good. It's a must for there fans.
I'll Make a Man Out of You is a great song. It's sung by one of the greatest singers alive in Donny Osmond. His voice an amzaing thing to listen to. His vocals are always clear and strong, and it's my favorite song from the film.
Reflection by Christina Aquleira is a beautiful sung. Chirstina has one of the most beautiful voices in the world. I can't say to much about what she does out of the studio, but the woman can sing. It's a must for her fans.
I like the Mulan soundtrack. It's not as good as Beauty and the Beast of The Lion King but it's a worthy soundtrack. It's something the kids will love. Check it out, you'll probaly like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best in Recent Years Oct. 23 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The legend of Mulan is well-known in China, where it has been passed down for thousands of years. In fact, the Disney film based on the story was originally called "The Legend of Mulan," but wisely, instead of placing the story among legends like Davy Crockett or Paul Bunyan, the story of Mulan is played out for all the pathos and beauty of its storyline--embodied in the strongest of all Disney cartoon heroines, Mulan herself.
For the story, one must watch the fantastic film, which surprised even Disney with its success (considering it was made in far-off Florida, out of the watchful eyes of corporate execs, which probably could explain some of it). For the music, the soundtrack is a highlight and a must for any fan of Disney music, or those who are fans of epic film scores.
For the Disneyphiles, the songs from the film, written by Matthew Wilder (the 80's pop singer who had a hit with "Break My Stride") and David Zippell (Tony Award winner for the lyrics to "City of Angels"), are catchy and mostly memorable. Sung by a great cast (including Lea Salonga, Donny Osmond, and Harvey Firestein), they help tell the story, set up conflict, etc.--just as any good musical numbers should.
The strongest of the songs is the contemplative song for the heroine, which sets up the struggle she faces and the reason behind her decisions in the film. Called "Reflection," it is beautifully sung by Lea Salonga. Following closely on its heels is "Honor to Us All," which shows the prospect facing a young woman in ancient China and how the best honor she could bring to her family was to marry well. (The song also features a performance by legendary voice Marni Nixon, the singing voice of Audrey Hepburn in "My Fair Lady.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Disney masterpiece score Dec 4 2002
Format:Audio CD
The soundtrack for Mulan is a good one, with good songs and an outstanding score. The songs written by Matthew Wilder and David Zippel are good and fun to listen to in parts. The pop song "True To Your Heart" by 98 Degrees and Stevie Wonder is a good song, as well as the Christina Aguilera version of "Reflection". As for the score, composed by veteran Jerry Goldsmith, it is the true voice of the film. About 30 minutes of score is featured and every bit of it is simply outstanding. It is based on a seven note fanfare for brass, which represents the Mulan character. "Suite from Mulan" contains all of the themes arranged into one 7 minute suite. A large orchestra is featured in "Mulan's Decision" and "The Huns Attack", along with Goldsmith's electronics that he uses in just about every score that he does, which give the music a nice touch. The Reflection theme is similar to Air Force One and Star Trek: First Contact themes, which Goldsmith also composed. Bits and pieces of Chinese music are thrown in some of the cues, representing the setting of the film, which is in (take a wild guess). Overall, a great soundtrack with a score that should have given Goldsmith an Oscar and songs that fit in nicely with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets June 5 2002
Format:Audio CD
As you know, the Mulan cd is an original soundtrack of the movie "Mulan" that has the same title. If you have watched the movie already, you shoud buy this cd because whenever you hear this songs you can imagine the scenes of movie. Even if you have not watched it, to buy it is a great choice for you.
Each song has a story and includes many meanings because it is played at an important point of the movie. The story of it is that a brave woman, of course whose name is Mulan, saved China when the Hunds invaded China. So most of the songs have a strong and grandeur mood.
Among those songs, my favorite is "I'll make a man out of you." The general who Mulan likes sings this song. Mulan pretended to be a man, so the General regarded her as a weak man. He thought he has to make her a strong man. It's a story of this song.
The background of this movie is China, so when you hear this song you can feel the mysterious atmosphere of Asian country. The song starts with like an march tempo. You can hear the lyrics "be a man" that is funny and humorous so many times as a chorus. It If you can understand the meaning of "mysterous dark side of the moon", you must understand the story totally.

The best tracks are Mulan Suite and Reflection (sung very beautifully by Lea Salonga). The worst track if Christina Aguilera's version of Reflection. What a way to ruin the song!
