Review

While it is hard to argue with the ecology lesson behind "Circle of Life" or the impossibly infectious rumba of "Hakuna Matata," the true heart of the original soundtrack release of Disney's The Lion King was the 17 minutes it included of Hans Zimmer's inspiring and majestic score, divided into four brief segments ("This Land," "...to Die For," "Under the Stars," and "King of Pride Rock"). Unfortunately, this special edition reissue of the album does not add any additional portions of the score, opting for an unreleased song, "The Morning Report" (sung by Jeff Bennett, James Earl Jones, and Evan Saucedo) and yet another remix of Elton John's "Can You Feel the Love Tonight," this time with added percussion. These two additions are nothing special, and certainly not enough to merit buying The Lion King soundtrack a second time. Disney missed an opportunity here.
