The several strains running through this kid-ready TV-soundtrack disc--pop and R&B boy groups, '70s and '80s Top 40 nostalgia, modern-rock stars, the Spice Girls, and one little-heard Geffen signing--hold together surprisingly well, like the mix tape proffered by the heroine of Ben Folds Five's "Kate." Backstreet Boys' "Hey Mr. DJ (Keep Playin' This Song)" displays them at their most Michael Jackson-esque, as Robyn's "Show Me Love" does at hers. The Cardigans' "Blah Blah Blah" fits the show's wiseacre tone, and Matthew Sweet's "Magnet & Steel" is a remake that's been waiting to happen for years. Good stuff. --Rickey Wright

Okay but gets cheesy at times

"Sabrina The Teenaged Witch is a very cute, teeny-bopper show. Therefore you get cute, teeny-bopper songs. The highlights are Robyn's song Show Me Love which is a track with killer vocals, and Sugar Ray's cover of the classic song Abracadabra. The Spice Girls also give us a good track with Walk Of Life which is a fun song all about enjoying life. 'N Sync's can keep you entertained, as will Five and Ben Folds Five. However, there are fallbacks. I still cannot listen to I Know What Boys Like in full, it is just so bad. The Britney Spears song Sodapop is pop corniness at it's best complete with a reggae singer. While Melissa Joan Hart can definately act, she can't really sing making her track not that interesting. Overall though, if you are a fan of the show and pop music in general, you'll like this collection of songs."

"I used to watch "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" all the time; now I hardly ever watch the show. Why? Who knows? Anyway, I don't own this soundtrack but my younger sister does and let's just say that I've "borrowed" this soundtrack from her a few times to listened to it and see what it's like. I think this soundtrack is okay for kids. I'm 17 years old, and I have to say that I very much enjoy listening to Pop music (especially the Boy Bands) so I thought this would be a good CD. I was both right and wrong. How? Let's just say that most of the songs on this soundtrack weren't all that great but a few of them were actually pretty excellent. I especially enjoyed listening to "Show Me Love", by Robin, and the Backstreet Boys radio mix of their song, "Hey, Mr. DJ (Keep Playin' This Song)" - not the original version from their 1997 self-titled debut album! And I even liked Britney Spears's song, "Soda Pop", which is also on Britney's debut album. And I really liked the old Blondie song that Melissa Joan Hart sang, "One Way Or Another". I guess one of the reasons why I really liked that song was because she performed it on her show in the episode where she competed with her friends for that "Battle of the Bands" contest - in one of the earlier seasons. It was the same episode that the Backstreet Boys (my absolute #1 favorite band in the entire world) guest-starred as the final band to perform at the contest! That, I have to say, is my favorite "Sabrina" episode. (My other favorite episode is the one where Sabrina and her school went to Salem for a day, another one of the older epiodes.) Anyway, this is a pretty good soundtrack to get if you're a fan of the show. But if you're not a fan of the show then you're better off not buying this soundtrack and buying the albums by the artists listed here on the soundtrack."
A music CD for the Kids!!!

"ABC's television show, "Sabrina, The Teenage Witch," is the #1 show among teens and women and also in the Top 10 of all broadcast television with kids and teens. A perfect formula to cash in and Geffen definitely will score with this soundtrack. Let's see, who would some of these bands target for the TV audience? How about every top selling act for those age categories like the Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync, Chumbawumba, Robyn and many others. Melissa Joan Hart who actually plays Sabrina also joins the mix and sings the old Blondie classic, "One Way Or Another," and Sugar Ray give a great version of Steve Miller's classic, "Abracadabra." Not only is the soundtrack loaded, but many of these bands will also appear on TV shows in its upcoming third season. A definite witches brew of bands and music to cash in on what's hot with the kids and teenagers. Guaranteed to be a CD many parents will hear loud and clear from their kids' rooms in the next months!"
