Kidz Bop, Vol. 2 is another edition of the singalong series that combines light cover versions of mainstream pop songs with a chorus of singing children. Like the first version, this alternates between pleasantly appropriate material and songs that are jarringly changed around in an attempt to make them more child-friendly. Still, tracks like "Get This Party Started" retain many of the veiled sexual themes that drove the original versions, and the awful reworked take of "I'm Real" shouldn't have been included at all, even if they changed the dirty words. A lot of the songs here are perfectly fine, but the songs that aren't may cause parents to give second thoughts to buying Kidz Bop, Vol. 2.
