The songs? Still pretty good. But maybe Disney’s cash cow didn’t need a further milking with this live version of the hit soundtrack. High School Musical: The Concert is essentially stopgap product for tweeners who’ve exhausted the karaoke or video encore editions, and a teaser for the concert DVD they’d be better off waiting for — previewed here via a bonus disc with live footage of five key tunes. Complaining about the lip-synching is as useful as visiting Disneyland and kvetching about anatomically disproportionate mouse ears.
