Bayou Boogie Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Randy Newman wrote the songs for Disney’s 2009 animated feature The Princess and the Frog but has nothing to do with 2010’s Bayou Boogie, a collection of songs inspired by the film and sung by its characters. Fittingly, the songs here sound like skillful knockoffs of Newman’s clever Big Easy pastiche, only broader, cartoonier -- still catchy, but undeniably kiddie, relying on character and jokes. This is bound to disappoint anybody who found the original soundtrack a pleasant surprise but this is still entertaining, even if it’s more of a conventional family album than the proper soundtrack.
