The last time Disney hired a mainstream pop star to pen tunes for an animated jungle-themed blockbuster, the result was Elton John’s mega-selling soundtrack to "The Lion King." Here, Phil Collins does the honors, and his zestful, African-spiced songs make TARZAN one of the more listenable Disney soundtracks in recent memory. Fans of the diminutive Brit will kvell over Collins' double versions of nearly every tune, including a vocal-percussion number, "Trashin' the Camp," performed with monster boy band 'N Sync; actress Glenn Close, as the apeman's adoptive gorilla mom, is sweetly nurturing in her lullaby duet with Collins, "You'll Be in My Heart." Also included here is the always-engaging composer Mark Mancina's graceful, evocative instrumental score.

Never even watched the original movie, but I'm in love with ever song!
By far, this is definatley Phil's greatest work. Especially when he collaborates with 'N SYNC. Overall, every track on this cd is excellent!!
TARZAN IS A GREAT MOVIE WITH LOTS OF FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY. THE SOUNDTRACK IS ALSO GREAT BECAUSE IT HAS THE FILM VERSIONS BUT IT ALSO HAS PHIL'S VERSION!

If you like the Disney movies and like Phil Collins then this is the soundtrack for you. The songs are reminiscent of Disney's true character and Phil Collins does each song justice. It is upbeat and fun, yet can be quite inspirational with the mother and child song. Both my 11 and 14 year old daughters love to sing along with me when the songs come on, particularly Trashing the Camp. This soundtrack is not just for the young but the young of heart and a few of the songs can be quite romantic when shared with the perfect someone. Give iot a try we think you and your family will like it!
I thought this was the best film Disney has ever made! Phil Collins made it happen!
This is my FAVORITE soundtrack. I have wanted it for sooo many years and I finally am going to get it for my birthday. Phil Collins is EXCELLENT with great intellect!
This cd is one of the best cds i have ever heard. I absolutly love the duet with Phil and *NSYNC. It blows my mind!!!
Amazingly sung by Phil Collins!!! Bravo walt Disney!! I love your style!
The songs are short on this album but it really touched my heart. When I saw the movie i knew I had to get the CD,Now I listen to it all the time!
Reveiwers seem to have missed one detail worthy of note- that Phil Collins plays along with the Mark Manicina score tracks
