"I have always loved Alvin & The Chipmunks, and it's a given, even till today. This CD is extremely wonderful and fun to listen and sing aloud to, even dancing. *coughs*forme*coughs*. All of the classic songs being Chipmunk remixed. I think even some are better than the originals. I only give it 4 stars, cause like everyone, Track 3 and 8 get tired or old pretty quickly when talking, though is fine to listen to anyway. Still, this will never be a disappointment, I assure you.
I always thought Alvin was the best singer out of all of the group (I even like his voice out of all of them too, and even my friend agreed with me), since he could hit the perfect melody, the right pitch, and high soprano sounding really smooth and husky when needed, even though he's the one that usually sings the lead. The others are great, but his tone appeals to ME the most. My personal favorite is "Purple People Eater", in here Alvin's voice really stands out, and in some parts, though still squeaky but controlled, is silky and to the beat. Another is "Rocket Man", though I would have preferred it without Dave interrupting, and "Mr. Spaceman" (I had fun with this one). As for The Chipettes, I definitely like "Venus".
But the best is The Chipmunks & The Chipettes version of "The Time Warp". It's so much better than the original is not even funny, and is the one I repeat the most and never get tire of. It starst out with a Twilight Zone Theme, and then it goes into the actual song. Simon plays the Narrator, Alvin plays RiffRaff, doing an awesome job rocking out some of the last lines when reaching the chorus, in that perfect raspy high pitch of his again, Brittany as Magenta (I can tell her voice, besides who else?), and Theodore doing the Columbia solo *glomps* (SOOO cute!), while the chorus are sang together by the 2 groups.
A must buy for any Chipmunk loving fan."

"This is another cd I first heard when working in children's radio. I really enjoyed listening to most of the songs on this album. My favorites include:"Purple People Eater""Men In Black""Rocket Man""Venus""The Time Warp""Mr. Spaceman"My favorite song is by far "Rocket Man". I think the Chipmunks have made a better version that the original. I only give this 4 stars instead of 5 stars because though I enjoy listening to the "X-Files Theme" and "Star Wars-Cantina Band", once listening to the dialogue versions found here is enough.Overall, a great album for any Chipmunks fan, space fan junky, or person who loves great children's music."

"I love this cd. I bought a used copy, and it was in mint condition. Not only do I love this cd, but my soon to be 4 year old son loves it too. It is very rare that my husband and I can find music that we both like and that is appropriate for a child as well."
