GLEE, which features a soundtrack of hit music from past to present, follows an optimistic high school teacher, WILL SCHUESTER (Matthew Morrison), as he tries to refuel his own passion while reinventing the high school's glee club and challenge a group of outcasts to realize their star potential. It’s not an easy task when the pitch-imperfect club includes MERCEDES (Amber Riley), a ... Read more in Amazon's Glee Cast Store

Editorial Reviews

The Glee cast is back with the first CD from the second season of FOX's hit show. Paying homage to Richard O'Brien s cult musical masterpiece, the Glee cast injects their distinctive style to such Rocky Horror Show classics as Time Warp, Damn it, Janet and Touch A Touch A Touch A Touch Me. With all the excitement around Glee's return, it's evident why the New York Times proclaimed Glee is now a bonafide phenomenon.

Customer Reviews

I love the Rocky Horror songs and the Glee cast did a great job on them.
Ima Writer
It's almost as though the creators of Glee shouldn't have bothered with this if they had to completely castrate the show.
Good King Garion
Even though I wish they'd left the song as it was (Come on folks, you can't say transexual, but transvestite is alright?

"Glee"'s third episode-specific CD release (or EP), following those for "The Power of Madonna" and "Journey", is the soundtrack to their tribute episode to "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", the biggest cult film of all-time (and "The Rocky Horror Show", the stage show that was the original inspiration; indeed, some of the song choices made here are references to differences between the two shows). It is overall a strong effort, and features some great work by a number of the castmembers. Indeed, considering this was only one episode, a surprising number of the regulars (all save Mark Salling/Puck, who wasn't in the episode, Mike O'Malley, Jane Lynch, and Jessalyn Gilsig, who don't normally sing anyway). Some spoilers for the episode will inevitably creep into the review, so be warned.

Song-by-song:

1. "Science Fiction/Double Feature" - the longest song on the album, actually (though the shortest in the actual episode), a quirky melange of references to 1930s-1950s sci-fi/horror cinema that establishes the tone of the original story. This is actually the first solo song for Naya Rivera/Santana. It's a bit of an odd choice for that distinction, since it has no real relevance to her, but Rivera's mix of hard pop and R & B vocals have rapidly become one of my favourite sounds on the show, and she does well here. She sounds rather different than she normally does here, singing a much slower and less intense number than past work on Madonna or Lady Gaga - indeed, a lot of people were convinced that it was Jenna Ushkowitz/Tina or Dianna Agron/Quinn (personally, the former is plausible, as Rivera and Ushkowitz actually do sound rather alike; I really can't see how people thought this was Agron, though).

Would be 5 stars if we got the original lyrics and no Jane Lynch???

but i have enjoyed songs and understand this was for network televison not HBO or Showtime. Glee has pushed some borders this season Britney and Santana making out in bed, Britney and Kevin having sex, the whole religion episode. the producers probally gave into the rocky lyric changes to keep the others.

i did not feel it was "the same voices we always hear". I knew I would love the Time Warp and they knock it out of the park with Chris Colfer (kurt) as Riff devilishly delightful totally in his element. Emma (Jayma Mays) lead on "toucha toucha touch me" and john stamos "whatever happened to saturday night" are new and fresh. Emma's an important character but she has had few songs to this point. Amber Riley "mercedes" on sweet travsestite was pleasant i was expecting Puck or Kurt but in hindsight Riley's voice is the only one with the power to pull off a bawdy romp of a tune with the force it deserves. the one thing i did miss was no Jane Lynch (Sue) or Puck (Mark Salling) on any songs??

Don't be a Rocky snob. this is not a remake, not the original, but it is a nice tribute. it keeps the faith of the original alive and it is fun.

First let me say that I am really not a big fan of Glee BUT I am a fan of Rocky Horror and have been for many years. The rendition of some of the songs they did even with the "TV friendly" lyrics and casting was still awesome. I would say as good or better than the original but you really can't do a comparison due to the much better fidelity of this recording and the changes they made to fit inside the format and time limits. John Stamos was a real surprise to me doing Meat Loaf's song but ALL of these songs will be going into my iPod for regular playing. All I have to do now is decide if I need to buy some better MP3s of the original. This TV show may not be something I will tune into very often but this tribute to Rocky Horror was exceptional and deserves accolades to all involved. I wish they could have done it all unbroken without the lame story they created around it. I would buy the video :)

It's one thing to have Lea Michele do Streisand, because the admiration and respect is there as well as the voice (and the pushing to star in the eventual Funny Girl revival). But this is a travesty. There has probably never been as horrid a cover as Amber Riley trying to take Frankenfurter to church. If you're going to do an exact copy then have respect for the original and DO NOT change the lyrics. If something is not suitable for TV (and who believes there is anything Fox thinks isn't suitable) than just don't do it.

I never much cared for Rocky Horror when I was younger, but that's because I didn't understand it. When I got older, and started getting made fun of for my weight, I realized it was a show about celebrating your difference. And then I fell in love with the music. I was a little worried when I heard Glee was doing it, because I knew they'd have to tone it down a lot to get past censorship. But I was determined to keep an open mind, because, after all, that's what both Glee AND Rocky Horror are about. And so without further ado, my two cents about Glee: The Music, The Rocky Horror Glee Show...

1). B - Naya Rivera (Santana) - Science Fiction Double Feature - I never much cared for this song, but I don't think Naya is capable of singing something badly, so it still sounds amazing.

2). A- - Lea Michele (Rachel Berry) and Cory Monteith (Finn) - Damn It, Janet - Even a song as classic as this one, sounds fresh and new when sung by Lea and Cory. Such a fun little song.

3). A+ - John Stamos (Carl) - Whatever Happened To Saturday Night (AKA Hot Patootie) - I already knew that John Stamos could sing. After all, he was named an Honorary Beach Boy. Go ahead, I'll wait while you go look up the video for Kokomo on YouTube. LOL But bottom line, he ROCKS this song. So much fun!

4). A+ - Amber Riley (Mercedes) - Sweet Transvestite - I was a little concerned about this song being sung by Amber Riley, especially considering how long it took for Tim Curry's version to grow on me. But this is Amber Riley, and I forgot she can do ANYTHING. She murders this song like she was born to sing it. Even though I wish they'd left the song as it was (Come on folks, you can't say transexual, but transvestite is alright? And Heaven was blocked too?! Insanity, that's what these censors have!
