As a major music lover I absolutely love this show. It is one of the most original shows on television, yes that’s right it’s not another fucking cop/hospital/legal show. Thank fuck!
It’s as if the last twenty years of television the producers are as weak as piss and try to feed us the same old shit repackaged to sound brand new (ie Grey’s Anatomy - General Hospital seriously what’s the fucking difference!)
Anyway back to the album. I am a big fan of the show so I decided to get the soundtrack, I must admit I felt like shit buying it especially the look from the sales assistant, smug bitch!). The album starts with the song ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ and it is an awesome start. Then it’s ‘Can’t Fight This Feeling’ which is cool and this is followed by ‘Gold Digger’ and I must say I love this version of the song better than Kanye West’s version. I am not a big fan of Kanye i just think he is the quintessential wanker, so far up his own ass I don’t know where he starts and his ass ends.
‘Take A Bow’ is cool but the next song ‘Bust Your Windows’ sung by Amber Riley (Mercedes Jones), really delivers the goods, this song is absolutely awesome, man I don’t know how someone so young can have so much talent but she does, it must be something that those African-American girls are born with. I mean their voices are so powerful that I an in shock and awe!
The next song ‘Taking Chances’ performed by Lea Michele (Rachel in the show) is unreal and I expect big things from this girl, her cover of the song is amazing, She is a real talent!
‘Alone’ is one of the best songs on the album sung by Kristen Chenoweth (April) and Matthew Morrison (Will Schuester), it is a truly fantastic song and a stand out on this album.
Then it’s ‘Maybe This Time’, ‘Somebody To Love’, ’Hate On Me’ & No Air’ all performed by members of the cast they are really good cover versions and give the originals a run for their money.
Then it’s onto one of my favourite tracks ‘You Keep Me Hanging On’ sung by Dianna Argon (Quinn). I would seriously not keep this sexy little cheerleader hanging on why the fuck would you! I really love this song, I mean, I loved the original too (sung by the Supremes) which helps I guess.
‘Keep Holdin’ On’ is OK then it’s ‘Bust A Move’ sung by Matthew Morrison (Will Schuester), I loved this song when it was sung by Young MC with Flea from the Chilli Peppers on bass guitar and I love this version!
Next is song by one of my favorite characters from the show Puck (Mark Salling), he reminds me so much of myself, filthy and flirty but the chicks just love it. The song is a cover of Neil Diamond’s ‘Sweet Caroline’ and he just OWNS it!
The last songs are not my favourites but I still like them ‘Dancing With Myself & ‘Defying Gravity’. All up the The Glee soundtrack is a collection of re-makes of fairly recent popular songs performed by a quite talented group of young singers.
I doubt this album will appeal to those who don’t watch the show and as such I will be giving it 3 and a half shots of whisky out of five. I have all the albums by the way! I just thought I would go back to the beginning!
Till next week, peace out my bitches!
