More Great Music from The OC
on May 29, 2005
The OC is a great show on TV. Not only are the plots, acting, and themes presented on the show great, but it is backed up with a great soundtrack. Songs on this CD are from the second season of The OC, and added a great mix of genres to amp up the show. Here is what I thought of the tracks:
1. Decent Days And Nights - The Futureheads: 5/5 = The Futureheads are a great band, this song gets you up and moving.
2. Goodnight And Go - Imogen Heap: 5/5 = Another great song, cool techno sounds bring this song to life. Great lyrics.
3. Fortress - Pinback: 5/5 = Good lyrics, simple chords, a good song.
4. On The Table - A.C. Newman: 5/5 = Fun, upbeat song. Good to listen to in the car
5. To Be Alone With You - Sufjan Stevens: 5/5 = This is a beautifully written song, with great lyrics and music. The banjo adds a nice touch.
6. Play - Flunk: 4/5 = Intresting...not much to say about it, but it grows on you
7. Scarecrow - Beck: 4/5 = Not the best Beck song I've heard, kind of melancholy and dull at points
8. The View - Modest Mouse: 5/5 = Fun song, has pop and energy, good lyrics
9. Hardcore Days & Softcore Nights - Aqueduct: 3/5 = Probably my least favorite song on the album
10. Cartwheels - The Reindeer Section: 5/5 = Nice, soft song, has a good sound
11. Eve, The Apple Of My Eye - Bell X1: 5/5 = Dreamy, sweet, sad song that makes you want to keep it on repeat
12. Champagne Supernova - Matt Pond PA: 5/5 = My favorite song on the album, mainly because of the moment it was played on the show. Nice long song, cool strings added into the mix of the song make it fun and worthwhile.
OVERALL GRADE: 56/60 = 93%
Good album if love The OC and want to get into new indie bands
