Album Review: Brian Wilson - 'In the Key Of Disney'
A joyful Wilson performs Disney's finest
8 / 10
Deny the sheer emotive glory of Disney’s finest musical moments all you like, but you’re only lying to yourself. Even errant genius Brian Wilson
knows that it’s not the devil who has all the best tunes, but cartoons. Try not to grin inanely as the banjo-led big band play ‘The Bare Necessities
’, sob to Wilson’s lounge lizard harmonies on ‘When You Wish Upon A Star
’ or find lions sexy during his restrained ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight?
’. Listening to a joyful Wilson sha-la-la his way through The Little Mermaid
’s ‘Kiss The Girl
’ is almost enough for us to forgive him refusing to join The Beach Boys
on their 50th anniversary tour. Almost.
