Many people refuse to even take a glance at this movie and soundtrack because they hear that it’s a cheesy musical. It’s a shame, they’re missing out on something great just coz they think it’s cool to ignore it. In some cases, they just hands down don’t like it, but I can guarantee you that most people are just too embarrassed to admit it. But they’re entitled to their own opinions, so I’ll leave it be.
I am entitled to my own as well, and I’m here to say that this movie and soundtrack are very impressive. The cliche moral of the movie (to break free from what you’re used to and to follow your dreams) seemed to somehow be a novel concept because it was taught with songs and music. Kids can really relate to this movie and the humour in the movie was not that of regular Disney movies. It was actually funny in a way that didn’t involve pratfalls or forced laughter. Old Disney movies were great, but they started to get pretty bad. I’m a sucker for musicals, so I watched this movie. I’m proud to say that High School Musical gave me hope for a better future in Disney Movies.
This soundtrack will bring cheer and a sense of comfort to most people who listen to it. The young voices of Zac Efron, Vanessa Anne Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, and Lucas Grabeel are fantastic and compliment each other very well. The songs that were written are more than appropriate for the movie and the catchy beats make you want to listen to them again and again.
I felt the need to write this review because people seem to be so harsh on everything Disney related. Before you get all offensive, just remember that we are all entitled to our own opinion and I chose to acknowledge some of your harsh ones, but still accepted them. This soundtrack is very good, and I highly recommend it.
