Composer/producer Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, etc.) has already lassoed eight Oscars in his run as a Disney hit-deliverer, and here he rustles up several good reasons for the Academy to offer him one more. Of the eight non-score songs on offer, three are knock-your-spurs-off dazzlers: k.d. lang pours her perfect pitch all over "Little Patch of Heaven," Bonnie Raitt breaks hearts with the fragile piano ballad "Will the Sun Ever Shine Again," and Tim McGraw tips a twangy hat to friendship on "Wherever the Trail May Lead." The Beu Sisters' version of "Anytime You Need a Friend," also performed as a final track by Menken, satisfies musical sweet teeth--it's the sort of song that's practically mandatory on a Disney record these days--but its slightness doesn't detract from the at times rootin'-tootin', at times pure-prairie-pretty mood. Listeners of all ages, saddle up. --Tammy La Gorce

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The songs are underpinned by country influences, but seem way more like old fashioned cowboy songs than anything that might pass for pop music today. More than half the album is score, and while it's decent, the songs by Alan Menken outshine them all. The main ballad ("Will the Sun Ever Shine Again?") has a breadth of emotion that should never been placed in the same film with Roseanne Barr.
Sadly, because of the utter failure of the movie, this is one of those Disney soundtracks that is probably destined for obscurity. But it could have been worse. It could have been the soundtrack for Brother Bear.

What to say about the OST? Honestly, as far as my opinion is concerned, it ain't got the qualties of a Mermaid in desperate love, or of a hungry thief with a heart full of hope. But it's got singing cows, yodels in the air, and a whiff of the wild west which is hidden in the warm breeze below a blue sky above a dusty ground.
