REVIEW: ‘Frozen’ Soundtrack Disney’s Best Since ‘Beauty and the Beast’

Note: This is a review of the original motion picture soundtrack to Disney’s Frozen. Reviews for the film are under embargo until later this month.

Disney 'Frozen' Original Motion Picture SoundtrackOn November 25, Walt Disney Records will release the original motion picture soundtrack to Disney’s Frozen in both single disc and 2-disc deluxe formats (available for pre-order via Amazon and iTunes), the latter of which features demos of songs that didn’t make it into to the film for various reasons (25 were written with just eight plus a reprise making the final cut). In addition to the songs written by the [married] songwriting team of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the soundtrack features a score by Christophe Beck and orchestration and arrangements by Dave Metzger. With a pedigree such as this, it’s a natural expectation for the soundtrack to exceed, but frankly expectations are greatly exceeded in what can easily be seen as Disney’s best musical since Beauty and the Beast, and in some ways, even better.
