he tale of Mulan is a particularly satisfying one, accomplishing the rare feat of appealing to both boys and girls -- there's plenty of action, a strong female central character, and not too much mushy stuff. Mulan is a dutiful daughter in feudal China, who disguises herself as a man to fight in a war with the Huns. She does this to save her ailing elderly father's life -- he himself would have been forced to serve, since he has no sons. Aided by a pip-squeak dragon named Mushu (the voice of Eddie Murphy in the movie, and a Murphy soundalike here), Mulan succeeds at her daring scheme. She defeats the Hun despite being unmasked at a critical point, winning the heart of hunky Captain Shang in the process. The songs are above average, especially the flower-petal-delicate "Honor to Us All."

If you want one soundtrack this is the one. Disney did a good job when they chose Christina to be the lead singer. She shows her best in this soundtrack, no one could have done a better job.
Christina Aguilera and 98 degres put on a brilliant performance! A must have CD for the up coming year!
I loved this soundtrack, esspacilly the son 'Reflections'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i love this cd especially the make a man out of you and honor to us all those r my favorites
''Reflection'' is the best song, but you will also enjoy ''I'll Make a Man Outta You'' and ''Honor to Us All''. The score's pretty good, the only song that really stinks is ''Girl Worth Fighting For.'' Anyway, this CD's a good buy.
