Glee's First Collection- Fabulous Chartopping Rema

by T Rogers on 10/6/2011

Glee is certainly a well written comedy, however, what makes the show so fresh are the songs ranging from Broadway to Rap. Volume 1 is fabulous!The stand out songs are: Defying Gravity- modified from Broadway's Wicked sang by both male and female leads thus breaking the gender barrier; Journey's Don't Stop Believin'- Glee's theme song as it ends the pilot episode ; and a, slick, slow paced remix of Dancing with Myself, originally a heavy metal tune by Billy Idol! You won't be disappointed!

Product Overview

2009 soundtrack to the hit TV show featuring tracks performed by the show's cast. Glee, from Ryan Murphy (creator of Nip/Tuck), is an uplifting comedy musical series with biting humor that features a soundtrack of hit music from past to present. The show follows an optimistic high school teacher as he tries to refuel his own passion for singing while reinventing the school's glee club and challenging a group of ragtag performers to realize their star potential. Each episode of the series features an eclectic selection of hits from genres spanning pop, R&B, Hip Hop, Country, Broadway and Rock 'n' Roll, reinterpreted through the lens of Murphy's modern sensibility and razor-sharp wit.

Like the HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL franchise, GLEE became more than a TV show when several of its songs cracked the Hot 100, including the number four hit "Don't Stop Believing." That song kicks off this soundtrack, the first in a series of albums cataloging the music performed by the show's cast. Not all GLEE members are created equal--some cast mates are far better actors than singers--but this soundtrack has enough star power to keep things trucking along, especially when powerhouse alto Lea Michele takes the wheel. She sounds fantastic throughout, whether she's holding her own during a duet with Broadway queen Kristen Chenoweth or covering the likes of Jordin Sparks, Avril Lavigne, and Queen. The soundtrack is mostly a vehicle for her voice, yet it also gives ample stage time to Matthew Morrison, who downplays his own Broadway career by rapping on two different tracks. Tuneful performances by Mark Salling (the Neil Diamond-loving jock) and former boy band member Kevin McHale (the wheelchair-bound Artie) also point to the fact that GLEE is an ensemble production in disguise, but Lea Michele still receives top billing, as she sings circles around most of the pop stars whose music is featured here.
