Frozen has been the most popular hit in Disney's last decade (original, I mean). It wasn't a huge box office, but it became a cult classic for kids. The sequels was going to be a killer.
But the movie was so good because the songs were simply amazing. I think Disney songs weren't that good since the peak of Alan Menken. It seems that it didn't last, though, which is normal, composing killer songs is like getting lighting in a bottle.
Yeees, that was the main success of That movie the music. It was like old days good. Since beauty and the beast we didn’t get such great songs in an animated movie.
If we applaud something to frozen it’s the music.
And you are so right on how difficult is to always write new killer songs, it happens to the biggest music stars that they get once in a while awful albums. Because they can’t always get the best songs.
Last year I was angry that from all the singers I like no one had a good album.
With Ariana Grande I was getting excited with no more tears left to cry and then came her horrible thank you next and her mix up with my favorite things ughhh why?
Taylor swift I loved her album with Blank Space, Style and so many others of that album.
And then came the horrible what you made me do ughhh. Great video but horrible song and Katy perry what the hell happened to her ?
So going back to frozen if it’s hard to get an album fir a singer imagine how hard is to get killer songs for a movie and the songs need to fit the story.
Fully agreed. Into the Unknown feels just as a standard Broadway song. No magic, no soul. The songs in the first Frozen gave me the thrills, like the songs in Beauty and the Beast, or Aladdin's A Whole New World. The songs in Frozen 2 have no magic.
Yeap, I know what you mean about expecting some album from your favorite singers or musicians. I have been expecting another great album from Yann Tiersen for years. Probably it will never happen. And the last album from Zaz was quite a shitty one :-(
A recommendation, though: don't miss the last album of Leonard Cohen, with the last songs he left before dying and that's gonna be released this winter. What Happens to the Heart is a killer song.
