Editorial Review

He's sold millions of albums, filled arenas, and hobnobbed with George Harrison, Bob Dylan and Roy Orbison, but Tom Petty's driving heartland rock has often been taken for granted by the same critics who hail John Mellencamp as a genius. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect!!!!
Now this is one of if not the best greatest hits album ever made. Tom Petty is a very underrated artist and this album shows how great he was and is. From his first album untill today Tom Petty is one of the best rockers out there. Every song here is a classic and can be listened to over and over. Must have for anyone who likes music. Tom Petty rocks!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars It was because of the oldies, but goodies
I feel that after Petty released "Full Moon Fever". and hung around with the rest of the Travelling Willburys he lost some of the moxie that his albums had. There were some rather good nuggets left off here like "Shadow Of A Doubt", "Thing About You", and "Letting You Go". I felt the two new songs on here are split down the middle. "Mary Jane's Last Dance" is pathetic, and last desparate act. However, "Somthing In The Air" is a respectable cover of the Thunderclap Newman song from 1969, and in some ways even better. "Mary Jane" though was one of the horrible songs I had to endure listening to the first few months that I moved down to Florida. The oldies saved this from a bad rating.
5-0 out of 5 stars Everyone who loves music should own this
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Greatest Hits captures just that from their debut in 1976 right up until 1993, before they moved to the Warner label. Around the time of its release, the single "Mary Janes Last Dance" was a huge worldwide smash and that song, and a cover of the old classic Thunderclap Newman "Something In The Air" which was a humble hit in England complemented most of their best and well known hits at the time.

5-0 out of 5 stars A review of reviews.
This review will begin by quoting from what I found to be the most helpful and entertaining reviews written up until this point.I will then offer a few thoughts of mine on the album.The quotes:
3-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre at best.
You know why Trivium are the NEW Metallica??? BECAUSE THEY RIP THEM OFF IN EVERY ASPECT THEY CAN...
3-0 out of 5 stars I like it, but not as much as Ascendancy
I'd give The Crusade a 3.5 star rating (I'd give Ascendancy 4.5...I love that record).I like The Crusade a lot, but it took a few listens to grow on me.It's an entertaining listen with solid riffs and nice leads and solos.Some of the lyrics are good, some not so...I do appreciate the obvious political/spcial themes of some of the tracks.I do like the singing, as I'm an old school metal fan, and I don't consider it a sell-out as many have called it.However, I got to know Trivium through Ascendancy, and later Ember to Inferno, and the change on The Crusade kind of threw me for a loop even though I knew before hearing the album this was the direction they were taking.I used to hate the screaming and Ascendancy was one of the records that finally got me to "get over it."lolAnyway, this is a good record with obvious Metallica, Megadeth and Iron Maiden influence on it.If you like metal without the screaming, this is definitely worth picking up. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Strange, twisted, and funny
The second I heard the song, "Crows," I knew I had to own this album.I know nothing of Lemony Snicket books, but I've a been a Magnetic Fields fan for awhile.So, after very awkwardly browsing the childrens' section at the bookstore, I was able to find a copy of this really great album.I was very happily surprised to find that this CD is more in line with Merritt's great early nineties albums (like Holiday, Wasps' Nests, and The New Despair) rather than i or (shudder) Showtunes.This is a great mix of synths and traditional instruments (if you consider an electric sitar "traditional").The lyrics are very depressing/weird/funny/moving depending on the song, though some are all four.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Gothic Archies' strongest outing yet...
...and one of Stephin Merritt's most memorable, and by far the funniest.On this album he is doing what he does best: being a glum old curmudgeon-popster with tongue wedged squarely in cheek.No knowledge of the Lemony Snicket books is needed.There are a number of direct references in several of the songs, but the lyrics stand on their own quite well, particular in numbers such as Freakshow, Shipwrecked, How Do You Slow This Thing Down?, and A Million Mushrooms.Expect an expertly crafted mixture of glum yet surprisingly catchy arrangements coupled with more of Merritt's hilariously morose lyrics.Highly recommended! ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Something Missing
I am not going to rate this particular album as compared to the other two Coldplay releases as they are all essentually the same quality.I really find that I enjoy listening to Coldplay, however it took a while to figure out why.I have decided that Coldplay represents to me what I miss from yesteryear on the radio, however, there is nothing groundbreaking or unique about Coldplay's music.For those younger people who believe Coldplay is the next this or that, well, they aren't.I think my biggest problem with Coldplay is they lack an identity of their own, which is why there is so much debate on who they sound like.Throughout their collection, I hear U2, Dave Matthews, Depeche Mode, the softer Smashing Pumpkins, and even Soundgarden (Daylight).Maybe it is commendable that they remind me of so many other bands, as it suggests they are not one dimensional.
5-0 out of 5 stars great album
Coldplay rocks! rocking, yet raw and spiritual, simple and moody, yet uplifting. "Politik" rocks while "clocks" is a beautiful and earthy song. Other standout tracks include "The Scientist", "in my place" and "amsterdam" great album, buy it if you dont already have it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Coldplay's "A Rush of Blood to the Head"
This is a quietly brilliant album by Coldplay. There's something for everyone here, from the rocking "Politik" to the celestial, beautiful "Clocks". I highly recommend it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Debut CD
Good country voice.Good listening.Several songs I really enjoy."Beer or Gasoline" is cute, "You're Gonna Love Me" and "Drinkin' Me Lonely" are well sung and "I'm Headed Your Way, Jose" is great fun."Flowers" is also good.I was pleasantly surprised with many good songs.(I bought it for his Nashivlle Star song, "Drinkin' Me Lonely) and was not disappointed with the whole album.

5-0 out of 5 stars HUGE Debut for Chris Young
It's very rare that I get a cd, much less a debut cd, from an artist and I can honestly say there's not a bad track in the bunch, but I'm glad to say that I can say that about this one.I watched and voted in the Nashville Star competiton and I am so glad to see this release.The song choices are excellent, the production is outstanding and what can I say about Chris's voice except that it's excellent!I would be happy to hear any of these tracks on the radio, but will say my favorites are of course the 1st single, "Drinkin' Me Lonely", the excellent message song "Flowers"and the tounge firmly planted in cheek "I'm Heading Your Way, Jose".The disc starts off on a high note with "Beer Or Gasoline" and doesn't let you down until "Who's Gonna Take Me Home" which is another great track.If you love your country, then you have to love newcomer Chris Young. Give him a listen and see if you don't agree.

5-0 out of 5 stars Chris Young Has Got It All
It has been a long time since I have been so excited about a CD.This CD is a great mix of music from a tear jerker (Flowers) to a couple of tunes that make you LOL (White Lightening and Your Way, Jose).Ballad or up tempo song, this guy can sing!He has that smooth Tennesee baritone voice that makes you keep listening to every song over and over again.I am a huge country music fan, and having heard this CD I can only think "YES, this is what I have been wanting to hear!" I love every song on the CD!This is only the beginning for the rising star of Chris Young!A must buy! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A recording genius.....JESSE'S BACK!!!!
The moment I heard the first single (Right where you want me) on the radio, I went out and bought it.It's THAT good.In fact, when the album came out, I bought that pretty much straight away too.To be honest, I was a little scared when Jesse said he was going to try some different things on his new album, because I REALLY liked what he did on the last one!!But my fears were allayed straight after I first chucked it on the stereo.JESSE'S BACK!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Regarding "Honest Opinion"
Amazon's claim that these are snippets of some of the songs from a larger LP, ARE CORRECT. I give this three stars just as a middle grade / to not sway the other reviews, but FWIW the actual LP will be released on Halloween. This is not the full album that people have heard.

4-0 out of 5 stars Vintage WHO....but no Entwistle or Daltrey "B" side song...
This is THE WHO in 2006. Finally after what is left of the band plus 4 some superb musicians like Pino Palladino, Zack Starkey, Simon Townshend and John "Rabbit" Bundrick, entered the studio with Pete Townshend not only writing all the songs but producing and mixin, we have THE WHO first taste of their complete new collection of songs since 1982 "IT S' HARD", a cd with great songs and production but with a wrong runnin order (the same problem that "Who are You" had). THE WHO began recording this cd in 2002 when John Entwistle was still alive. They practice 3 songs and released two on "NOW and THEN" another "greatest hits" CD with two SIMON TOWNSHEND produced songs: "REAL GOOD LOOKING BOY" (a tribute to Elvis and Pete himself), and the great tribute song to John Entwistle "OLD RED WINE". They did practice a Roger Daltrey song called "CERTIFIED ROSE" that remains unreleased in the best of WHO tradition. JOHN ENTWISTLE recorded many songs on his own for this proyect but did not gave to Roger and Pete, as STEVE LUONGO said on an interview...and the sad thing is that neither Roger or Pete took the time to ask for them in order to hear them.
4-0 out of 5 stars Tommy's Grandparents
Pete Townshend didn't just invent the rock opera, but also the "mini opera" when he wrote "A Quick One While He's Away", which Pete often referred to in early performances as "Tommy's Parents".Well, Wire and Glass could be "Tommy's Grandparents" because this rich song cycle delves deeply into Townshend's familiar semi-autobiographical world which will be instantly recognizable to any Who fan.From the self-confessional "They Made My Dreams Come True" which echoes the Cincinnati tragedy ("people died when I performed") and the Isle of Wight ("and the band played on until the dawn") to the powerful Mirror Door which revisits Tommy and the Mirror in so many ways, Wire and Glass proves that while Daltrey's voice may be fading, Pete Townshend is still the best songwriter of his or any other generation.To be fair, like any Who material, Wire and Glass works best on the stage, so be sure it see it live if and when you have the chance. ...

Editorial Review

The Weepies are a duo of songwriters Deb Talan and Steve Tannen. How can one not help but be delighted when two such similar sound names align with one another? Perfectly matched, the thirteen songs are quiet but insistent, with lyrics full of pop smarts and poetic depth. Narratives, whether fragmented or direct, empower most of the songs, giving even first-person vantage points a solid foundation. Talan does the bulk of the lead vocals, and her voice is a confident instrument, full of sly surprise and subtle phrasing. The pair's harmonies are thoughtful and evocative, oftentimes utilizing less than obvious intervals. In fact, the chorus vocals owe more to great radio pop of the sixties and seventies than to the various contemporary strains of folk and Americana. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Suprisingly amazing
I just bought it because I liked the cover art. That's not entirely true, I did hear one of their songs on the Paste sample CD.Anyway, this is smart music; smart lyrics, smart melodies and smart writing.It's very soft, subtle music (which is where I'm at musically right now).Most of the songs focus on the vocals which means that the listener will listen to the lyrics.I can't say enough about the song "The World Spins Madly On"Blew me away when I first heard it and still does.It sounds like a Fountains of Wayne not to mention he sounds a little bit like Adam Slessinger.Never before have I heard someone sing about the world moving on while I silently sit still and think about the opportunities I've passed up.
5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Music
This is the kind of CD that makes you smile when you listen to it.It's the kind that makes you want to sing along before you even know all of the words.The kind where you think every song on it might be your favorite.The songwriting is thoughtful, heartfelt and sweet (in the best possible sense of the word) while also exhibiting an intellectual edge.The lyrics are well-written without overshadowing the lovely harmonies that Steve and Deb have created.Her voice is evocative of Patty Griffin, but at the same time is unique and absolutely lovely.His voice is just at nuanced and gorgeous, and when they are singing together, it is a study in the beauty the human voice can produce.This is Americana at it's finest.I'm torn between wishing The Weepies all of the commercial success they so richly deserve and wanting to keep them my little (newly discovered...thanks, NPR!) secret.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Weepies
Infectious and joyful, I literally feel better after listening to their CD.Able to communicate the sorrows faced in life within a validating presense."Painting by Chagal" is terribly romantic, captures the essence of what the experience of "love" is."Painting by Chagal" is part poetry, mythology and ordinary reality. ...

Editorial Review

Pink Martini should be known as the little orchestra that walks a fine line in its music. The Portland, Oregon, outfit is deeply influenced by Latin music, jazz, cabaret, cinema scores, and a smattering of other styles. But rather than simply aping legendary artists in their prime--and fooling only a few dim bulbs in the process--band shakes things up by writing its own material, or at least creating tasteful new arrangements that fit within the band’s unique post-lounge framework. The band keeps the playful musical vibe on Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars great music for parties and scrabble games
This is great music for parties, when you want something interesting enough to create a fun, jazzy mood - it also works equally as well for candlelit scrabble games with your boyfriend.Although this album is not quite the classic as their first (both the songs Veronique and The Gardens Of Sampson & Beasleyon my nerves and I deleted them from the album on my Ipod) it is still one of my favorites and most often played cd's.I hope it odesn't take another 7 years for them to put out their next album.

5-0 out of 5 stars A trip across time, cultures and memories
This is one of the most beautiful and refreshing albums I have heard in a very long time.I heard it first on a long-plane ride - I was instantly in a different world - flying from place to place reliving memories that I had forgotten existed.
5-0 out of 5 stars Beyond brilliant!
When Pink Martini produced Sympatique WAY back in 1997, I was literally floored by the quality and excellence of the album. It remains one of my favorites, to this day, almost 10 years later.

Editorial Review

The notion that rock must perpetually break new ground and reinvent itself is the odious legacy of 10 too many years of rock-crit navel gazing, and one that young Australian power trio Wolfmother stands gleefully on its head with their effusive debut. Hardly surprising to find a new generation's reaction to a decade of shoe-gazing alternative rock angst to be a return to the guilty pleasures of unabashed, blues-based stadium rock--even if they seem unsure whether they're channeling the early Zep scream 'n' sludge frenzy of the single "Woman" or adopting The White Stripes' stripped-down ethos on "Apple Tree" and elsewhere. They bravely mix suspect '70s lyrical thematics ("White Unicorn," "Where Eagles Have Been," "Tales") with usual suspects like Sabbath ("Dimension"), stir in the neo-prog of "Colossal," "Witchcraft," and "Tales," (the latter complete with Tull-savvy flute break), then toast Soundgarden and Queens of the Stone Age on "Mind's Eye" and elsewhere. Their frightfully funk-challenged "Love Train" gets promptly derailed, making one yearn for a hit of Eagles of Death Metal for relief, but its wreckage only proves how far Wolfmother is willing to push the envelope in forging their often intoxicating evocation of the past as future.

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid but not Unified
Wolfmother creates genuinely good music on their self-titled debut. Many of the songs are catchy and throwbacks to the great classic rock artists of the 70's and 80's. Therein lies the only problem with this album. All the songs may have well been recorded by different artists. The band, instead of using their own style, seems to have paid homage to a different band in each of their songs. I am, however, optimistic that with future releases the band will find their own style. The instrumentation is great, and the vocals are excellent. Buy it for it's odd neo-nostalgia to the great artists of the 70's, and buy it to discover an emerging new band.

1-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre garage band tries to cash out from '70s hard rock
This is simply bogawful. Annoying vocals (another Robert Plant wannabe --- I've lost count already!) coupled with substandard, boring and repetitive riffs played by a garage band who struck a record label deal.Sorry, but these rookies are just too lame and pretentious to compare them to any hard rock band who played in the '70s.

This is like early Black Sabbath for the 21st Century, only lacks Tony Iomis soaring guitar solos.If you loved Iron Man, and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, this is the album for you.Check out the website too, very cool.The tracks will grow on you, but Witchcraft and Joker and the Thief really stand out. ...

Editorial Review

With her fourth album, Australia's Kasey Chambers is expanding her realm. There are bigger sounds, including a flurry of electric guitars, and she has winningly created a whole new set of mysterious tensions. Eschewing the softer sound that had defined her earlier work, Chambers' innocent sounding voice is now set against a world of shadows and acute angles. The band also eases into a range of sophisticated grooves, from the noir-infused "Light up a Candle" to the barn burning "Got You." Chambers can still churn out catchy melodies, which she does at every turn (the chorus to "Sign on the Door" is unstoppable), though she keeps them from ever becoming cloying. Also with the expansive arrangements there's a dynamic quality to the album as a whole, as density gives way to open spaces. Indeed, Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Divine
This is a phenomenal album that grows stronger w/each listen. From the opening, hypnotic "Colour of a Carnival" to the closing, heartfelt "Don't Look So Sad," there's nary a weak track. And while it's true that Kasey has eschewed some of the alt.country underpinnings of her previous works for a more mainstream approach, there's still plenty of twang here - "Light up a Candle," "Hard Road" and "Railroad," for instance, the latter of which chugs along a la Lucinda Williams' "Joy" (and feature an incredible vocal from Kasey). Other highlights include the rollicking "I Got You Now" and the absolutely divine "You Make Me Sing" ... plus "Dangerous," which - as all the songs here, actually - features a hypnotic vocal. Perhaps that's why the change in sonic colourings almost seems a moot point. Her voice is such an expressive instrument that, regardless of context, you come away entranced. I do, at any rate.

Kasey is back with a new cd.She's stepped farther way from her country and alt/country roots and approached the rock-tinged, singer/songwriter sound with her considerable song writing talents intact.She's accomplished this with more success and sincerity than either the Dixie Chicks or Allison Moorer did in their recent releases.

Editorial Review

This packed double-disc is the slim option for fans who find the Eagles' vaunted greatest hits sets too little and the boxed set too hefty. Hit singles large and medium are here, often ("One of These Nights," "Hotel California") still sounding definitive and even tough. Large helpings of favorite album cuts are also included, along with a taster from a promised 2004 Eagles studio reunion. Unfortunately, "Hole in the World," Don Henley's response to September 11, feels just as empty and entitled as "Get Over It," the band's previous state-of-the-union message (from which the newer song represents a philosophical 180-degree turn). But for those seeking an overview of this Southern California juggernaut's successes, as well as telling comments from band members--mostly Henley and Frey--in a well-designed booklet, Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Of The Best
This is the best collection of Eagles hits. Every thing you could want is contained in this double disk set. Solid throug and through. Can't go wrong with this one. Must have.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Only Eagles' Collection You'll Need
This two CD set has every essential Eagles song. It has everything from the original greatest hits albums from the seventies, and then some. Moreover, the remastered sound means that these classic songs have never sounded better. The sheer number of songs on this two cd set means that this is not the tight set of hits that the classic 1975 collection was, but you can always skip over any extra tunes that you don't like (like the silly "Doolin-Dalton").
4-0 out of 5 stars Still flying high
I can understand the dismay of many Eagles fans, being presented with yet another compilation, a repackaging of the same oft-compiled material.It can seem like another of the Laurel Canyon crowd (Joni Mitchell is the prime example) preaching to us about the evils of materialism while they grow ever richer with reshuffled Best, Very Best and Very, Very Best albums.I suppose, as they are such keen environmentalists, there is some logic to all this recycling.

Being, as she is, the daughter of prominent British actor Keith Allen, the cynics could easily dismiss the rise of Lily Allen as an act of backroom nepotism, a talent-free starlet helped to the stage by the right connections. But one listen to her debut album Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Nellie McKay + Sheila Nicholls/Kirsty MacColl = Lily Allen
And that is a very good thing.Take the witty, biting lyricism of Nellie McKay, the great melodies, harmonies, and production of Sheila Nicholls, and the clever, lamenting heartbreak of the late, great Kirsty MacColl (and just a pinch of Fiona, while we're at it), and you have Lily Allen.Which is just astounding and wonderful to find.Due to play on "Grey's Anatomy" and KCRW, I've been trying to find her music here in the states, and this album finally available, albeit it as an import.But it's worth the extra few bucks.
1-0 out of 5 stars Bad Spice Girls impression
I know what you're thinking: isn't Bad Spice Girls redundant?Well, I thought it was until I heard Lily Allen.The lyrics are insipid and repetitive and the music is standard issue, overproduced pop.There are apparently lots of folks who go in for that, so I'm sure Ms. Allen will be huge.For about 6 months.Then the next pop sensation will arrive and we'll forget all about her.Good riddance, in advance.

5-0 out of 5 stars More than alright!!
'Alright, still' is the fun filled, summery debut from 21 year old English singer Lily Allen. Discovered on myspace by hundreds of millions before she'd even signed a recording contract, her sunny, upbeat riposte at an ex, 'Smile' got to no.1 in the UK.

While the cocktail lounge fad has seen more than a few musicians climbaboard as a career move, the members of Pink Martini are no bandwagon-ridingaficionados. Fronted by pianist Thomas Lauderdale, Pink Martini is the real article--aband that approaches the music with unwavering seriousness yet never forgets the fun atthe heart of it.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Quepaso, Qhe paso Yolanda?
If you ever buy an album just because of one song, you have got to check out Yolanda which is track 5 on this album, which is just amazing.I cannot possibly do it justice by attempting to describe it, except that it just makes me feel incredibly good.I would recomment this album for this reason alone, although I have to say it is an enjoyable easy to listen to album, with excellent instrumentation vocals, and excellent atmosphere.
4-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, but where did Bolero go?
I bought this wonderful CD a while ago, and recommended it to many friends. I then gave away my copy and bought another to replace it. Imagine my surprise to find that the newer copy didn't contain Bolero. For that it loses one star.

2-0 out of 5 stars Musical Hodgepodge
A hodgepodge of music featuring some really bad French and a bleating trumpet. Some tracks shine while others made me cringe. A real disappointment. I should have listened to all the samples before buying it and not just assumed it would all be similar to the tracks I heard on the radio. Probably the worst version of Que Sera Sera I have ever heard, tho it is not a song I cared for to begin with. Like one review says, it's a variety of music, tho I add: none of which is related other than being from the same planet... not an ethnic fusion, just a sampler of divergent sounds. Reminds me of the Lawrence Welk Show, tho not as good technically. One for the back of the drawer. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Thanks to a fortuitous intersection of talent and fate, 22-year-old Josh Groban hasn't finished his senior year in performing arts school but has already released his sophomore effort on a major major label. Fans of the young vocal phenom's debut will find much to enthrall them here, even if it nudges the singer closer to the center of producer/mentor David Foster's MOR pop sensibilities. Eschewing much of its predecessor's more overt classic-lite pretensions and pop-rock covers for a slate of dramatic, Eurocentric ballads that serve as a showcase for the singer's inviting baritone, Groban shrewdly positions himself as the American alternative to the Bocelli-Watson crossover axis. "Caruso" may find the singer falling short of its operatic inspiration, but "Oceano" and "My Confession" quickly showcase his truedramatic range (which seems to all but yearn for a bona fide Broadway musical challenge), while a vocal take of Bacalov's graceful "Il Postino" theme uses classical virtuoso Joshua Bell's violin flourishes to good effect. To his credit, Groban displays some promising efforts at songwriting collaboration on the bittersweet "Per Te" and "Remember When It Rains," while the ambient/ethnic soundscape of Deep Forest's "Never Let Go" offers a teasing alternative to the record's otherwise melodramatic production formula. Groban has found commercial triumph via Foster's mentoring, but there remains a nagging sense here that he hasn't truly pushed himself as an artist--yet.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Love Josh Groban's work
I love Josh Groban's work. I own both his first CD and Closer. I would buy all of his CDs except I have never been fond of live concert CDs. I think the fans clapping and shouting out detract from the artist's work and so I tend to stay away from those sort of CDs. May he continue producing new work so I can continue finding new CDs to listen to.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST MALE ALBUM EVER!!!
As my title states, Josh Groban's CD has to be THE BEST MALE ALBUM EVER!!!The tracks show off Josh's amazing vocal range and talent, along with a wide range of different languages, such as French, Spanish, and Italian.There isn't one track that I wouldn't want to skip, but my all-time favorite song has to be "You Raise Me Up".Amazing vocals, choral arrangments, and instrumentals accompany this piece, and you just want to listen to it over and over again!I also recommend that if you love Josh Groban, you may want to look into other classical superstars, such as Charlotte Church or Sarah Brightman.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great music
I love his first album and I love this one.No, Josh cannot be compared to some of the finer classical singers (as "MaestroMichael" so scathingly said in his review) but that isn't why most people like his albums.

5-0 out of 5 stars To Expand Your Musical Horizons (Or At Least To Expand Mine)
I adored this CD. Being a huge Gilmore Girls fan I asked for this for my birthday as I had no money, and have not regretted it. I can listen to it over and over without getting sick of it, and I never want to skip a track, though I have my preferences (Clear Spot, One Line, I'm The Man Who Murdered Love, Human Behaviour, Where You Lead I Will Follow, I Don't Mind, It's Alright, Baby, God Only Knows). I was pleased to hear that I agreed with Rory on Child Psychology - I liked it because it made me 'gloomy'. I also love Sam Phillips and the 'la-la' music from the show, and the cues make great transitions on this CD, just as they do in between scenes. I'm ashamed to say I hardly knew any of this music before watching Gilmore Girls, but this CD has made me want albums by every artist on here, so that's probably what my next birthday list will consist of.

3-0 out of 5 stars Our Little Corner of the World: Music From Gilmore Girls
The CD provides the themes heard on Gilmore Girls and that is interesting. However, I was looking for something more such as music referred to by Lorelai, Rory and Lane. As an example, it might have had "Shadow Dancing". It is not a CD I would RIP to a hard drive for inclusion with an evening of music. I would have a hard time playing the CD more than the three times I have played it.
4-0 out of 5 stars Gilmore Girls Rock
I loved the CD. The main reason I bought the CD is that my 8 month old daughter loves the music during the episodes. I own the 1st 4 seasons on DVD and we are just about out of shows to watch. She loves the opening song and the closing credits. The only thing I was upset over was that the closing credits were not on the CD. Otherwise, it is a CD that will rock in our household for years to come. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing album
There seems to be two groups of reviewers with regard to FFF, the 5-star gang who love John Ondrasik's musical versatility, opera-trained voice, and whimsical songwriting, and those who disparage the album for 'only having one good song' or Ondrasik for having too high a voice or writing lyrics that don't always make sense.
