Snow Day

Snow Day



Despite all the ballyhoo about the past year's sudden glut of teen pop groups, the fact remains that there has always been plenty of teenybopper music made for and by the pimple-popping set. The soundtrack to SNOW DAY -- a comedy about high schoolers trying to prolong their day off from school by hijacking a snow plow -- reminds us why the genre is so enduring: Its music is fun and catchy, while reveling in the irresistible pathos of young love's setbacks. None of the major marquee players appear here, so the album works best as a sampler of some up-and-coming teen popsters. Hoku, daughter to Hawaiian rocker Don Ho, offers the ultra bubble gum "Another Dumb Blonde," on which she sets herself apart from Britney and Christina by sounding her age rather than macking like a diva-in-training. Former New Kid on the Block gone solo, Jordan Knight fails to impress on "My Heart's Saying Now," but his song is followed by one of the album's brightest spots, LFO's "The Reason Why." The boys live up to their billing (LFO stands for "Lyte Funky Ones") with a groovy little jam you'll be humming for weeks. The guys in 98º flex their harmonic muscle on the ballad "Still," and in the process prove themselves the album's senior statesmen. Hey, Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync: Better watch your backs.
