AllMusic Review by

Not to be confused with Anti's excellent POTC movie tie-in Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs & Chanteys, Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Swashbuckling Sea Songs collects 14 seafaring singalongs that aim their cannons at the children who have spent time on the legendary theme park ride. The goofy renditions of classic sea shanties like "Blow the Man Down" and "Yo, Ho, Ho (And a Bottle of Rum)" have more in common with the Popeye cartoons than they do Naval work songs, and obvious film nods like "Welcome to the Caribbean" and "Davy Jones' Locker" sound hastily crafted for action figure commercials, but there are no Phil Collins or Elton John ballads here, making this one of Disney's more enjoyable bits of filler in years.
