Hercules [Original Score] [Blister]
The soundtrack to Disney's surprisingly ambitious animated adaptation of the Hercules myth isn't quite as strong as many of the studio's soundtracks in the '90s. It doesn't have the same effortless, memorable melodicism of The Little Mermaid or Beauty and the Beast, nor does it have the glossy MOR sheen of Elton John's work for The Lion King. Nevertheless, the music is stronger than Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and "The Distance" is a fine adult contemporary pop song, even if Michael Bolton oversings it in the re-recorded version targeted for radio. ~ Rodney Batdorf, Rovi
