Buy it... if you are either a general Phil Collins enthusiast or a collector of animation, because Tarzan succeeds for both audiences.

Avoid it... if you expect to hear more than a token amount of Mark Mancina's strong score for the film, which is limited to 16 minutes on the Disney album.

Mancina
Mancina
Tarzan: (Phil Collins/Mark Mancina) An endearing, all-around success story, Disney's 1999 summer animation blockbuster Tarzan returned to a formula that had worked wonders for 1994's The Lion King. The studio's adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' tale was graced with outstanding visuals, a well-rounded cast, and a soundtrack that once again combined a member of the Media Ventures scoring machine with a well-known rock musician. The pairing of Elton John and Hans Zimmer for The Lion King may be more famous than that of Mark Mancina and former Genesis lead Phil Collins for Tarzan, though when it came time for both duos to tackle another animation film together, the latter two men arguably succeeded better in the end. The voice of Collins was still a mainstay in the late 1990's, with his distinctive tones mixed here in layers similar to those often heard in his famous Genesis and solo efforts. Because Collins wrote his own material for Tarzan, his five songs also sound very familiar to his career in terms of structure and instrumentation; only additional arrangements made by composer Mark Mancina to tie the songs to the score (and the film's overarching atmosphere) distinguish these efforts from Collins' larger body of work. Mancina's career had already taken flight by 1999, with several major blockbuster action scores under his belt. While the tone of his music often reminded of Zimmer, his former collaborator, he had begun to branch out significantly by the end of the decade. His score for the dramatic 1998 character tragedy Return to Paradise has the most influence on his music for Tarzan, exhibiting some of the same exotic instrumentation and, interestingly, an occasional reference to the former score's title theme. Mancina stated clearly at the time that he was very happy with his collaboration with Collins. Some of Collins' themes were integrated into the score and, conversely, as already mentioned, Mancina handled instrumental arrangements for Collins' main pieces.
