When I first heard about this album I wasn't super psyched - while normally I love TV soundtracks, Gossip Girl doesn't really have a striking sound per se. This is still true after multiple listens of the album, I can't say it screams Gossip Girl, but it's definitely a screamer from start to finish, especially with multiple listens. In short, it's a great party mix.

There are three schools of sound on the album. The first is hipper than thou indie pop provided by the marching sounds of The Kills, the guitary strum of The Ting Tings and The Virgins, and the mellow buzzy beats of Oppenheimer.

Second, you've got your indie rock (possibly even pop rock), including the standout track of the album provided by Phantom Planet, 'Do The Panic', a wicked uptempo guitary tune. The Kooks 'Do You Wanna' is another more upbeat entry, while The Pierces and Albert Hammond Jr. spin a more mellow vibe. The Teenagers are too pretentious for words, but meld with the rest of the album.

Finally you've got the third wave, which is pure electronica / dance which takes over from songs 6 to 9 - all of which are great upon multiple listens for very different reasons, ranging from intense to airy.

For those of you looking for a very cohesive, defined sound - you might not find it here like you would on say, The OC or One Tree Hill soundtracks. You will however, find a great mix of indie-stream artists that makes a great up tempo, electric mix.

Mini-review: Before you ask, no, I've never seen an episode of Gossip Girl. I hear that it's a halfway decent show, but the title itself just sort of throws me off and makes me think of a post-millennium Beverly Hills 90210. Oh wait. Nevermind. The bottom line is that I'm currently inundated with far too many quality shows to watch, be it LOST, Heroes, How I Met Your Mother, or Pushing Daisies. But with a soundtrack this varied, this enthusiastically different, Gossip Girl may be the next show that I add to my DVR.

In 49 minutes, OMFGG takes the listener on a musical roller coaster that features such varied genres as indie pop, rock, dance, and straight-up techno. The Kills' "Sour Cherry" starts things off on a high note, with a percussion-driven dance rock groove that gets you makes you feel like you should be busting out of the doors of your high school in slow-motion with your trendy clothes and aviators on. Phantom Planet's "Do the Panic" is equally as awesome, with a chorus that will have even the most hardened hip-hop fan singing emphatically by the last time it comes around.

Other highlights include "Got Your Number" by Nadia Oh, which starts off slightly annoying and ends up slightly endearing, or Crystal Castles' entrancing "Crimewave." There are appearances from this year's almost-"it" band, The Ting Tings and The Strokes' Albert Hammond Jr. as well. In all honesty, there's something for everyone - as cliche as that may seem. It won't exactly elicit the same reaction as a party as, say The Jackson 5 would, but you could certainly do much worse. Aside from a few tracks that most will feel compelled to skip (The Teenagers and The Virgins, specifically) OMFGG is a fairly solid soundtrack in a world where most soundtracks aren't worth anyone's time.

Not what I was expecting. Really good quality of music, not the cotton candy fluff I was expecting. A good random listen. Don't be put of by the gossip girl title which is my guilty pleasure :)
