Schoolhouse Rock! Rocks (1996)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Various Artists; Genre: Rock

After the recent Saturday Morning Cartoons compilation album, it's easy to dismiss the tribute to ABC's bygone series Schoolhouse Rock! Rocks as more navel-gazing by a generation too young to be nostalgic. But the outright charm of its varied contributions, especially those of Biz Markie (''Energy Blues''), Folk Implosion (''I'm Just a Bill''), and Daniel Johnston (''Unpack Your Adjectives'') is enough to keep cynicism well at bay.
