Disneymania, Vol. 3 Review

by Heather Phares

Disneymania, Vol. 3 collects even more covers of classic Disney tunes by the studio's roster of teen pop performers and other kid-friendly artists. As with all the Disneymania comps, the quality of the performances is all over the place, ranging from highlights like Bowling for Soup's cheeky, punky take on The Jungle Book's "Bare Necessities" to missteps like Jesse McCartney's whiny version of "When You Wish Upon a Star." The collection is pretty evenly divided between faithful and more creative renditions of Disney classics, and there's something to be said for both approaches: Skye Sweetnam has fun with her Avril Lavigne-esque cover of The Little Mermaid's "Part of Your World," while former American Idol contestants Clay Aiken and Kimberley Locke contribute sweetly traditional versions of Aladdin's "Proud of Your Boy" and Cinderella's "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes," respectively. Tracks by Aly & A.J., Raven-Symoné, LaLaine, and Jump5 round out the album. Like the volumes that came before it, Disneymania, Vol. 3 isn't perfect, but fans of Disney's current pop stars should find at least a few enjoyable moments here.
