A big-budget Disney production like Oz The Great and Powerful needs an equally impressive soundtrack. And, luckily, Mariah Carey delivers with her contribution "Almost Home."
Produced by Stargate (Rihanna, Katy Perry), "Almost Home" is a big pop production and a nice break from Carey's recent R&B/hip-hop material (she barely sang in her latest single "Triumphant"!) Mariah keeps it tame at the track's beginning, then lets it rip with some impressive vocal acrobatics showcasing her range.
Welcome back, Mimi! "Almost Home" is definitely a contender for one of the best Disney songs ever sung by pop stars.
