We gave it a C+

This sticky-sweet grade-school party disc is chockful of top 10 faves (sound-alikes ‘N Sync and 98[Degrees]) and top 10 wannabes. So when your 9-year-old begs to hear this (and she will), bypass the ”Flashdance”-style ”Pokemon Theme” and Baby Spice’s latest in favor of tracks like Vitamin C’s slinky-with-surf-guitar ”Vacation” and Britney’s Jamaican-spiced ”Soda Pop.” C+
