Following in the footsteps of Kidz Bop Gold, More Kidz Bop Gold is another set of older pop songs given the Kidz Bop treatment -- that is, they're re-recorded by studio musicians and vocalists with a gaggle of kids singing along on the choruses. Just as the later volumes of the Kidz Bop series have gotten more eclectic, tossing in Franz Ferdinand and Modest Mouse singles along with the regular diet of Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera hits, More Kidz Bop Gold is nearly as wide-ranging, spanning versions of the Archies' "Sugar Sugar" and the Jackson Five's "ABC" along with "Walk Like an Egyptian" and "Don't Worry Be Happy." However, these hits from the '60s, '70s and '80s are far more squeaky clean than the fare on the normal Kidz Bop collections, which makes this volume's reason to exist that much more questionable -- especially since parents are likely to own these songs (or songs like them) and could easily make their own mix like this. For what it is, though, More Kidz Bop Gold is well done, and could be a fun singalong experience for kids and parents alike.
