Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love Glee! Great as always
Date published: 2011-02-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better Selection than the Last Really, when I review these albums, it's not about the content of the music for me, because everything Glee tackles is fabulous! It's more or less what your money is worth when purchasing this. I'm actually listening to this album on shuffle as I write this. This selection was definitely way better than last volume's selection. They included smash hits like Forget You, Marry You, Billionaire, Teenage Dream etc. that were instant best sellers on the iTunes charts. The only few smash hits that they left out (I think) were Hey Soul Sister, Umbrella/Singing in the Rain and Dog Days are Over. I would have swapped out Matthew Morrison's Sway (in the episode Furt), One of Us (in the episode Grilled Cheesus) and I Want to Hold Your Hand (in the episode where Kurt's Dad's hospitalized). Here's why: A) Hey Soul Sister vs Sway: Who doesn't love Darren Criss? I mean really, a very potterific musical? Sway was a smooth jazzy tune that was really nice for Matthew Morrison's voice. However, when you have your glee playlist on your iPod on shuffle (it's my best playlist - I have every album made! 105 songs! There's a reason they call me 1#Gleek) would you rather listen to a candy coated, up-beat a cappella from the dreamy Dalton Academy Warblers or a seductive and slow Sway? That's what I thought. B) Umbrella/Singing in the Rain vs One of Us: Who doesn't enjoy a fun mashup? Especially totally gleed-out? Umbrella/Singing in the Rain was from one of my favourite episodes this season and it was one of the best mashups the New Directions have done. It was a really neat mixture of two great songs and it just makes you happy listening to it! One of Us was nice, I guess. But as I said above, I'd rather listen to a upbeat song than a slow one. It was pretty but it's also religious so some may not enjoy the morals of the song. C) Dog Days are Over vs I Want to Hold Your Hand: Dog Days are Over was my favourite song from the sectionals episode this season. It was featuring the smooth and sassy vocals of Amber Riley (Mercedes) and Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina). It was an upbeat version of Florence + the Machine's smash hit. It wasn't musically very different - it was just a vocals difference - probably because Amber and Jenna aren't british! It was fun and catchy and lovely! It's high up on the iTunes Charts right now too, so it's not just me! I Want to Hold Your Hand was well, short and sweet. Sure, it's sad and makes you have that moment of "awwww!! *sniffles*" and makes it onto your list of sad songs to listen to when your boyfriend dumps you, but when your in a good mood it's just plain out depressing. As much as I love Chris Colfer's character Kurt, I find his vocals a bit whiny. Hence, I'd rather not have 2:38 minutes of that and instead have a blast listening to a good Florence + the Machine cover! I think the people who selected the songs for this are really smart. It's a good selection and has enough good songs that people would buy it. But, it does miss some obvious favourites that make you scratch your head and go 'what were they thinking?' but this is just a sneaky marketing techinique for you to buy more of the glee music on the iTunes glee store! I don't mind this because I am always replenishing my iPod with the iTunes store and will probably buy those songs I mentioned above anyway. If you actually read, this - wow! Hope this was useful!
