There is a definite feeling that this album is aimed firmly at teenage girls. I only have to say the words Miley Cyrus and you will probably think of the Cyrus media vehicle which is currently ploughing through the world, destoying all in its path.
This album contains songs and artists much in the vein of Cyrus and also comes with a bonus DVD, so you can enjoy the videos.
Cyrus kicks off the package with the romping 'Hoedown Throwdown' which stirs memories of her father Billy Ray. The track is pretty naff, but she has bags of enthusiasm and there is a sufficiently catchy allure to it to get stuck in the head.
The Jonas Brother follow suit, immaculately groomed and so very cheesy, these three brothers deliver a pop anthem which is part Busted and part Osmonds. Hideously addictive stuff. We then move to a duet between one of the aforementioned brothers and newcomer Demi Lovato. 'This Is Me' is the kind of song you can imagine teenage Hayley singing to in front of the mirror. The chorus is blustering and stands proud though and will empower younger audiences.
High School Musical babe Hudgens delivers a hideous turn on 'Sneaker Night' which has some ghastly minor chords. I could feel my back arch as she spun out this song. Next!
The Cheetah Girls perform 'Strut' which starts dubiously, then zooms off into an energetic r and b funky pop sort of thingy. You could have a strut to it, but I would say more a good old stomp. The album continues with the same sort of flavour, culminating in a couple of rousing High School Musical tracks, which will make you feel like dancing in a line with some mates and raising pom poms into the air, while being reminded how darned good life is!
21 tracks and 9 bonus videos complete a cheesy package. Useful for parties or kids presents perhaps.
Summary: cheesy pop
