On this release, the Wiggles joined forces with The Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, which makes sense since they are all from Australia. For the most part the music is pure Wiggles with added comments from Irwin and his wife, Terri Irwin. The Wiggles are smart enough to not stray away from their popular formula, but by adding Steve Irwin they are able to keep their music and CDs interesting. The Wiggles write perfect children's music. The songs are short, bright, and peppy with strong beats and repeated lyrics. Children will love this, as will adults. They are sort of the Beatles for kids with a great deal of humor. The melodies are strong and the songs are about animals -- great music for the family. All of the regulars are here: Captain Feathersword, Dorothy the Dinosaur, and Henry the Octopus. And the standard Wiggles fare is here. Jeff Fatt even manages to fall asleep and needs to be woken, as usual. The CD closes with a wonderful medley of their hits, which makes a great way to conclude this fun CD.
