Comments about the soundtrack for Home on the Range (Alan Menken)

Worst. Menken. And. Disney. Score. Ever.

Sorry to disagree with FilmTracks' review, but I was regretted wasting my time with "Home on the Range" as a film, and Menken's score did nothing to make it better. Like the movie, I found his tunes and score to be banal, insepid, and unappealing.

Failed Disney cartoons don't have to be this horrific; case in point: "The Black Cauldron" and "Atlantis: The Lost Empire" both fell short financially and were flawed as films, but at least attempted to do something more complex and adult-oriented than typical Disney fare. This film, on the other hand, feels like a big step backward, and having Menken rescore the movie is only enough to bring back unpleasant memories of his weak score for "Hercules", but this one outstrips it for being the worst of the worst. Not only is it lame and uninspired, it's simply unmemorable.
