Mulan: An Original Walt Disney Records Soundtrack
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

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.
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.
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.Read more ›
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.

I too am very disappointed with this soundtrack. I wanted one song and one song only, just like another person here who left a review. Read morePublished on Feb. 24 2008 by A. Ansah
Beautiful music, beautiful voices, beautiful songs. I especially like "Reflection" whose lyrics I can really relate to.Published on July 12 2004
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!Published on May 17 2004 by adam

Well-crafted movie with a good soundtrack. I LOOOOOOOOVVVVVVE the song "Reflection" (Lea Salonga's version). The instrumental numbers (esp. "Mulan Suite") are also great. Read morePublished on Jan. 22 2004 by berri
Great songs, great instrumentations. And great voices (especialy Lea Salonga's and Donny Osmond's).
There was definitely no need to do the pop numbers here. Read more
