For the kids

This is a compilation from 2002 performed by some fairly well known US artists. It starts off great, with a kicking version of The Muppets' "Mahna mahna" from Cake. The next few tracks are really good too, although there's too much variation in tempos - I find for an album to work for my kids it has to be fairly consistent in tone, and a slow song following a few upbeat numbers totally loses their interest. And thereafter the quality really starts to dip, alas - lots of second rate grown-up songs masquerading as kids music, and some real clunkers. And whoever wrote that "It's alright to cry" song obviously doesn't have kids themselves - my kids certainly don't need any encouragment when it comes to crying.
