Just like Dr. House himself, the soundtrack to the hit TV series manages to be both eclectic and brilliant, with a definite edge. The TV show frequently features a song that captures the feel of the episode, and this collection presents a representative selection of those pieces.

The album features some amazing tracks -- Michael Penn's "Walter Reed" is a bittersweet yet powerful ballad. Amazingly enough, Elvis Costello's cover of Christina Aguilara's "Beautiful" manages to work despite its unlikely heritage. The final song, a cover of the Stones classic "You Can't Always Get What You Want" featuring Hugh Laurie (Dr. House), Greg Grunberg (of "Heroes") and several other TV notables adds a nice laid-back feel to the album. Of course, the main title theme, Massive Attack's "Teardrop" leads off the album -- those who have never heard the full track will find it to be a great chillout piece on its own right.

Like the show, the mood of the soundtrack is often less than cheerful. However, there isn't a bad track on the album, and some of the tracks are incredibly poignant. "Walter Reed" is rapidly becoming one of my personal favorites. This isn't necessarily an uplifting soundtrack, but fans of the show will enjoy the selection of pieces evocative of one of television's best shows.

Amazon's digital download technology works flawlessly, even on a Mac. The Amazon downloader even helpfully deposited all the songs into iTunes. The low cost, lack of restrictive DRM, and hassle-free downloading make Amazon's MP3 Downloads the best digital download service on the net.

Just as it reads above the soundtrack has finally come out! I admit I wish they had more songs on here or released the music by season, but still the selections they have are quite nice. I'm really happy to see "Beautiful" by Elvis Costello on here as I thought he did a fabulous cover of the song! All in all a good mix, but if you have a favorite and just want the one I'd head over to iTunes.
Check out the official House website on Fox and get a free download from the album!
Also, if you interested in the songs from the show and like iTunes check out my iMix which is updated to Season Five. Type in: Fox House M.D. TV Soundtrack

Upfront I like the House soundtrack a lot.

However it is only 12 musical cuts, including Tear Drop (the Theme from House) by Massive Attack. I wanted a few House-isms with his satire and wit, sprinkled in this CD..However this was not to pass.

The CD seems too quick and I needed to more. However, the last cut on this CD seems to answer me when I say I want more, and it is like House speaking to me musically... You Can't Always Get What You Want, performed by Hugh Lurie's band, Band from TV

The soundtrack is not a hit driven musical pieces. These 12 cuts fit the House tome. The music is somber and bittersweet, just like the show. A problem is they dont say what episode these songs were it..that still doesn't mean the music isnt good

If you heard this soundtrack and never knew It was The House MD soundtrack, you will enjoy the music just the same..and that is what you buy a CD for

First of all, I bought this soundtrack off of Amazon back when I had another account listing, so forgive me that it doesn't say "Verified Purchaser" or whatever, you'll have to take my word for it!

Back story: I love this show, since the very first episode (I admit, I saw the pilot episode only after it was well into Season 3, and everyone was raving about it). I had heard about that "Bastard Doctor Show" a few times, and I had no idea if "House" was a euphemism for something else or what.

What really pulls it all together for me frequently in the shows and movies that I love, is the MUSIC. I love how they integrate it into each show as helping the show progress, or showing the conclusion with the music playing softly in the background, etc. This show is no different.

Track listing:

1. "Teardrop" by Massive Attack (Full version of opening credits' song)
2. "See the World" by Gomez ("Half-Wit")
3. "Walter Reed" by Michael Penn ("Fools For Love")
4. "Beautiful" by Elvis Costello ("Autopsy")
5. "Dear God" by Sarah McLachlan
6. "Feelin' Alright" by Joe Cocker ("Detox")
7. "Waiting on an Angel" by Ben Harper ("Lines in the Sand")
8. "Got To Be More Careful" by Jon Cleary & the Absolute Monster Gentlemen ("Heavy")
9. "God, Please Let Me Go Back" by Josh Rouse
10. "Are You Alright?" by Lucinda Williams ("Fetal Position")
11. "Good Man" by Josh Ritter ("Human Error")
12. "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by Band From TV

However, the reasoning for 4 stars is obvious; they are missing quite a number of famous tracks that brought the show its fame! What about the iconic time when Baba O'Riley was featured, and we are introduced to Vogler?

A few weeks ago, after a 4 day "House" watching marathon on Netflix, I found myself wishing that the music played at the end of many of the episodes was available on CD. On a whim, I decided to Google "House M.D. Music." Lo and behold, someone had compiled some of the music from the series on a CD.
Like other reviewers, my main complaint is that there isn't enough here. I WANT MORE! But what IS here is great.
This CD begs for a "Volume 2," as do I. There was some great music on "House" and putting it together makes perfect sense. I am glad someone took the time to compile this disc. Now, I just wish they would do a few more.
