We’re now able to hear one of the Alan Menken/Glenn Slater songs from Disney’s Tangled Rapunzel project:
I’m not really sure what to make of it. It’s a sweet song, but I don’t get the stylistic link between the song and the film. Is Disney trying to take the narrative style of Shrek, the musical eclecticism of Wicked and whatever elements the company has retained of their own fairytale formula, then throwing them all together and hoping for the best when everything settles at the lowest common denominator?
I suppose it all makes sense that everything about the film is “tangled”. I just don’t think I like it very much.
