4.0 out of 5 stars Another good "Glee" collection. May 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD
The sixth regular musical collection from the hit TV series "Glee" (there having previously been additionally a few other special collections, either holiday-themed or devoted to specific episodes) is a decent cross-section of the music from episodes 17 to 22 of the second season. This is one of the larger stretches of episodes covered by a single CD among the recent collections, and I'd argue that it shows in some of the omissions. However, one obviously can't include everything (nor should one, since, much like pop culture in general, not everything to show produces is ultimately very good).

Compared to some past collections this year, it doesn't feel like any major voices from the show are significantly underrepresented. It's also worth noting the significant presence of several major guest-stars on this CD: not just Gwyneth Paltrow, who has had songs on two previous volumes, but also Charice, Kristin Chenoweth, and Jonathan Groff. The individual songs on this volume are:

1. "Turning Tables" (originally by Adele) - the sole contribution to this album from returning guest star Paltrow is the first of two Adele covers here (the other of which also features a returning guest star). Paltrow has impressed as a surprisingly good singer in the past, and she does fine here, but she lacks the distinctiveness that has made Adele stand out. Competent.

2. "I Feel Pretty/Unpretty" (a mashup of songs originally from the musical "West Side Story" and TLC) - one of the standouts of the collection, and the season as a whole, is this affecting mashup featuring Lea Michele (Rachel) and Dianna Agron (Quinn). Agron is arguably the weakest female singer in the cast generally, but this is by far the best work that she has ever done. Superb.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overall, Glee worthy but one HUGE omission! June 3, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Am I the only person who has noticed that they have left off what is argueably the best song from the finale episode?? The duet of Kurt and Rachel performed in the Gershwin theater of "For Good"? I bought this album almost entirely for that duet, and because I have all other Glee albums, and was completely disapppointed that it was nowhere to be found. And everyone who is raving about it seems to have glazed over what I feel is a completely GLARING OMISSION. I mean am I the only one who watched the show? The other songs were great and I would put the duet of "I feel pretty/Unpretty" right at the top of my list of songs from this album, but come on, I understand they have to leave songs out in order to create an album but we get all the shabby fleetwood mac remixs but not the very well done performance of the Wicked song on the Wicked stage?!? Come on. Look back at Glee volumes 2,3 or 4 and they are really starting to not compare. These last two just dont hold up when looking back at the older compilations.

The final CD for Season 2, which is the 6th full album, is nothing short of spectacular from front to back. Maybe one of the best of the entire series, thanks to some HEAVY hitting covers, and epic guest stars from Gwyneth Paltrow as the sultry Holly Holliday, to Kristin Chenoweth as the hilarious booze hound April Rhodes, to Jonathan Groff's triumphant return as Jesse St. James. The entire experience is as 'Gleeful' as we've come to expect. And so without further ado, my humble opinions of Glee: The Music, Volume 6...

1). A+ - Gwyneth Paltrow (Holly Holliday) - Turning Tables - This is probably my absolute favorite of Gwyneth Paltrow's Glee numbers. And has anyone noticed that as she is getting more and more confident that she can, in fact, sing... She's getting AMAZING! I loved Forget You, and Do You Want Touch Me, but this is haunting and heartbreaking, as pretty much anything by the masterful vocals of Adele is... And Gwyneth does it complete and total justice. Amazing!

2). A - Lea Michele (Rachel Berry) and Dianna Agron (Quinn Fabray) - I Feel Pretty/Unpretty - Dianna Agron is noticeably underused, and it's almost understandable with voices like Lea's and Amber's and Chris'... But she has a pure, soft, lovely voice nonetheless, and it's REALLY showcased here. This is yet another BRILLIANT Glee mash-up, and the song is all the more powerful once you've seen the episode it comes from. So beautiful...

3). A+ - Chris Colfer (Kurt) - As If We Never Said Goodbye - I look back and I can't believe that the first time I heard Chris Colfer sing, I did a double take and I was like; "WOW that's high! He sounds weird!" And I guess what I really meant is he sounds different...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, Not Great Selection from a So-so Season July 15, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The selections are good, not great. How can the defining song for Kurt and Rachel, "For Good", not be included? On the other hand, every major character has something to "sing" about. Loved Santana's "Songbird." Her best work by far. The season was not a great one. Very sporadic in quality.
