The Lion King (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) – Various Artists
… For a spectacular soundtrack but not as spectacular as the original Disney classic from 1994. Having watched the movie and now listening to this soundtrack, I have to say I prefer the original (sorry guys!). Can’t say I’m a fan of Beyoncé to be honest, her songs don’t really do it for me. Great voice but not my style of music. The song “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” in 1994’s Disney version is much better, I felt the romance and connection in both the singers voices.
“Be Prepared”, again not a patch on Jeremy Irons, especially when I noticed the famous line “You Won’t Get A Sniff Without Me!! / You’ll never go hungry again!” has been cut from the 2019 version!
The score is great but again, much prefer the original from 1994. Great effort though.
