For all Disney fans, this is a great album with incredibly colorful artwork on the vinyl record, where Ariel herself graces one side and Ursula adorns the flip. Containing songs from the Oscar winning "Under The Sea" to the award-winning score composed by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, this is a must have for any Disney fan, whether old enough to have seen the film at its first release or if only old enough not to know a world before cellphones. If there's anything wrong with the album, all the songs seem to be in a higher key than the original recordings; although it is possible that my record player is doing this. (Kiss the Girl was originally written for C, this album plays the song in D.) But even still, a timeless soundtrack from a timeless film.
