Disney's Pixel Perfect -- a Disney Channel movie seemingly concocted from equal parts of Weird Science, Aerosmith's "Amazing" video, and Josie and the Pussycats -- features a soundtrack that is nearly as much of a hodgepodge as the movie's inspirations. The bulk of the eight-song soundtrack is performed by Zetta Bytes, whose songs range from the perky, post-Avril Lavigne "Notice Me" and "Get Real" to the more typical ballad "When the Rain Falls." The rest of the album ping-pongs between sanitized rock like LaLaine's "If You Wanna Rock," fluffy teen pop such as Huckapoo's "Perfectly," and tougher, more urban songs like Jai-da's "Don't Even Try It" and Lil' J featuring Chase's "Tru Blu." Despite its attempts at diversity, the soundtrack ends up as blandly pleasant as most of the rest of Disney's pop music. While it's not a bad album -- especially when compared to other music expressly made for and marketed to preteens -- it's not especially distinctive either, and it's a long way from perfect.
