Disney Channel Hits: Take 2 Review

by Johnny Loftus

The second volume of Disney Channel Hits follows the format of its first, featuring soundtrack highlights from existing Disney TV shows and movies with a few videos as bonus content. Take 2 starts out with three tracks from 2004's Stuck in the Suburbs, including Jesse McCartney's "Good Life" (which is also included in remix form), "Whatever Life" from Hilary Duff hopeful Haylie Duff, and the pleasant teen pop of Annelies VanDerPol's "Over It." The "Cheetah Sisters" theme is reprised from the Cheetah Girls soundtrack, but that set's "Girl Power" and "Cinderella" appear here in slightly remixed dance-pop forms. Elsewhere, the light pop vehicles for Disney starlets Hayden Panettiere ("My Hero Is You") and Christy Carlson Romano ("Anyone but Me"; "Dive In") differ negligibly from Zetta Bytes and Huckapoo's Pixel Perfect material. The fan who already owns the music from these films probably doesn't need Disney Channel Hits: Take 2, unless its video content is appealing. But for those who don't have the separate soundtracks, this is a nice enough sampler.
