Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

While the idea of infusing a weekly TV series with a Broadway musical ethos isn't exactly a new one--think Randy Newman's ambitious Cop Rock--it became something of a turn-of the-century television mini-trend. But few have reached as far--or succeeded--like this November 2001 episode of Fox Network's Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Penned by series creator-producer Joss Whedon and performed by Sarah Michelle Gellar and cast, it's a loving, loopy musical pastiche that takes potshots at everything from Andrew Lloyd Webber to alt-rock. Paralleling the show's lovable pop culture tweaking, the musical styles here (the episode's musical conceit is a curse visited upon Buffy's hometown of Sunnydale) range from a patent footlight chorus of demons being interrupted by Gellar's hard-rocking stake thrusts on "Going Through the Motions" to Spike the Vampire's goth-metal complaint "Rest in Peace," with everything from parking tickets and mustard stain removal to climactic duels with the supernatural getting the Broadway send-up. Also includes strong orchestral score-suites from three other episodes, as well as Whedon and wife Kai Cole's demo for "Something to Sing About." --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential companion to the incredible episode. April 16, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Episode number 107 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Once More, With Feeling - was an episode breakthrough for international television. It was a musical, so daring and bold, where the cast did all their own singing and the creator wrote all the music and lyrics. It was an amazing achievement and as a big Buffy fan I have to admit I was not disappointed by the episode. The CD is also brilliant, and as well as all the songs from the episode, it has some scores and suites from other episodes, like Hush and Restless, two of my other favourite epiodes beside OMWF.
Here's my track-by-track guide to ONCE MORE, WITH FEELING...
TRACK 1 - OVERTURE/GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS
Nice overture, and Going Through the Motions is one of the many comedic highlights of the episode while also showing Buffy's discontentment with her life. A great song, but would've worked better with the sound effects from the episode.
TRACK 2 - I'VE GOT A THEORY/BUNNIES/IF WE'RE TOGETHER
Awesome track, and still very funny on CD. I've Got A Theory has a cool little ring to it, and is so fitting for the Scoobies. Emma Caulfield's Bunnies is hilarious, and If We're Together is a touching track sung brilliantly by Sarah Michelle Gellar.
TRACK 3 - THE MUSTARD
This doesn't quite fit in the CD. It's hilarious in the episode though.
TRACK 4 - UNDER YOUR SPELL
Amber Benson proves she has an amazing voice. This is a great song with excellent guitar work and stunning vocals. I listen to it a lot.
TRACK 5 - I'LL NEVER TELL
Another really funny song, which shows Anya and Xander's nervousness before their wedding. Their complaints about each other are hilarious and always entertaining to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something to Sing About October 12, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Everyone involved in Once More With Feeling - from Joss to Christophe, from Jesse to Marti, from every mainstay and guest star to each extra or backup dancer - is to be thanked and praised. A musical episode is a huge undertaking and it was pulled off brilliantly.
Once More, With Feeling was a true musical. Sometimes, folks burst into song for no reason; other times, it was just the right time and place. It offered funny tunes (The Parking Ticket), a jazzy duet (I'll Never Tell), showstopping ballads (Under Your Spell, Standing), the group numbers and more. The hour was replete not just with songs but with emotion. It moved the stories, the people and the plots forward. This episode shook up almost every friendship and relationship and altered the course of the season. Secrets were revealed, hearts were broken, lives were changed.
Much like I pay heavy attention to the writing in a regular episode - the dialogue, the snappy our-show-only lingo to which we've grown fond, grown accustomed - here, I listened closely to the lyrics. I wasn't expecting everyone to sound perfectly. I was watching their acting and listening to the words. Not everyone wanted to sing, but they did. They were brave enough to do it. What I say to the naysayers who are telling me so-and-so sang poorly is this: Were you up there, on that screen, bearing your heart for the world to see? Just standing up there on stage - or in this case, in front of a camera - takes guts.

What an absolute pleasure it is to have the entire cast actually sing and take part in the episode rather than lipsynch to other people's voices. Granted, some shy away from singing, so Joss had them only sing a few lines by themselves and otherwise take part in the group chorus. Everyone took part; everyone was passable...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Stunning and Memorable Piece of Television and Music September 24, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Once More with Feeling" is a definitive "Buffy" episode. It displays the zany humor of the show, the dark brooding emotions, and the daring ability to take risks by the show's cast and creator. The cast's voices are good - not all great - but good and the songs honestly reflect the lives of the characters at this point in the show's development. Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy)'s voice is occasionally flat, but her stunning "Something to Sing About" is a heartbreakingingly honest performance. Other cast members whose voices excel include Amber Benson (magical Tara), Anthony Head (bookish Giles), and James Marsters (cynical vampire Spike). All efforts are put forth to create an incredible piece of pop culture that outshines many of its predecessors and, most likely, many that will follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once More, With Feeling = Definitely Worth It December 23, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I must say, this is probably one of the items in my Buffy collection I treasure the most. I LOVED the episode, and I was ultimately stoked when I discovered there was going to be a soundtrack. Naturally, I snapped it up the first day it arrived in stores. ;) It's a must-buy for any Buffy fan. Even if you're not a Buffy fan, any musical-lover will love this. I even find my college roommate humming a couple of tunes from it once in awhile, which she always denies - even she likes it, and sadly, I can't get her to understand the joys of the Buffyverse. *sigh* Anyway. Back to the review.
The fact that Joss Whedon was not credited with an Emmy nomination for this work is an insult. Of course, the Emmy people said they fixed it, blah blah, but whatever. The fact that he wrote all of the songs make it even more special. The man is definitely multi-talented - he even lends a bit of his voice to the final track.
However, it is the cast's voices that shine on this cd. Amber Benson and James Marsters in particular were gifted with fabulous, amazing PIPES. They make me wish Amber had a cd and I got to go a Ghost of the Robot concert once in awhile. Sarah Michelle Gellar and Anthony Stewart Head also give notable performances, and the rest of the cast isn't half-bad, either. The best song is probably "Walk Through the Fire", which includes all of the cast, plus Broadway alumni Hinton Battle.
The disc also includes some extra instrumentals, such as the tracks "Sacrifice" from "The Gift" - which always makes me cry - and the excellent suites from Emmy award-nominated "Hush" and season four finale "Restless".
All in all, it's a fabulous compilation. Five out of five stars, all the way.
