Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

You don’t have to be a gamer to enjoy the soundtrack to Stubbs the Zombie, but you do need a taste for irony, mixed with a moderate helping of kitsch. The concept is simple yet entertaining: hire a handful of very well-known "alternative bands," (The Flaming Lips, Death Cab, The Dandy Warhols) and have them rock to the oldies. Cake's "Strangers in the Night" is the best track hands down--you'll definitely want to spin this at your next cocktails-and-Halo-soiree--followed by the Ravonettes' "My Boyfriend's Back" (which also appears on Pretty in Black). But everyone does a fine job. These are songs that most people know like the back of their hands, so no big surprises--just a few giggles. Pop it into the disc player and enjoy... with or without brains. --Leah Weathersby

Product Description

Stubbs the Zombie's soundtrack will feature 13 all-new original titles from established, as well as upcoming rock bands, such as Ben Kweller, Death Cab for Cutie, The Raveonettes, Phantom Planet, The Flaming Lips, The Dandy Warhols and more. Sony. 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Soundtrack to an Amazing Game October 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Hearing these oldies ressurected (haha, get it?) in the form of transformed indie-rock covers is nothing short of a delight. "Lonesometown" is by far my favourite track.

I've noticed a recurring pattern in the theme of these reviews: the reviewers haven't played the game, but still love the soundtrack. That's all well and good with me, but I got the game the day it came out and played it through in about 9 hours. Not only is the game positively incredible (it actually includes a Parapa-esque zombie dance-off to four of these songs), but it is altogether complimented by this amazing collection of oldies-cum-newies. So in lieu of that, I would recommend playing the game to gain a full appreciation of the soundtrack. Unfortunately the better half of the songs actually aren't heard in the game, and those that are are emphasized over-enthusiastically ('Lollipop' especially; they got that one in there every chance they could), but they all fit the same motif, and the motif, as a whole, is just plain fun. Who hasn't fantasized about walking around a pseudo-futuristic 1950's metropolis as an undead travelling salesman from the 30s? I know I have.

Sceptics and elitists will be glad (or apathetic) to know that these new bands (none of which I am particularly fond of myself) have not butchered the sounds of the older songs at all, but have instead revived them into something new and different, something contemporary, something that is, frankly, completely kick-ass.

Good for music-lovers, amazing for fans of the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now appearing at the Velvet Sounds Lounge, it's.... October 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
a collection of incredible music pulled from the Oldies! Aspyr Media's producer Zach Rener does an excellent job of making this one of the best compilation albums of 2005.

Songs such as Rogue Wave's "Everyday" and Milton Mapes' "Lonesome Town" get a new, hazy-lazy-day feel to them that is both touching and inspiring. On the other end of the spectrum, Phantom Planet's "The Living Dead" and Rose Hill Drive's "Shakin' All Over" get an updated, funk-rock sound which reminds the listener what "psychedelic" means.

Overall, this album is a great mix of pop and alt-funk, with some lovely lounge sounds to keep us interested. It is not often a game soundtrack can hold its own. This album does just that.

4.0 out of 5 stars I dig it...Entertaining November 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Overall good assortment of songs...

I like how many artists gave their renditions...

If you like this... Give "The Bird has Flown" a shot...

Both CDs have Ben Kweller on them.

Worthwhile listen for old and young....

4.0 out of 5 stars Not too Shabby. July 31, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album is easily recommendable to anyone who either enjoys covers or indie rock. If you see one band you enjoy on the track list, there's a good probabability you will enjoy the entire album. It is a good break from the norm. Maybe not for everyone, but it is worth a shot. Very cool.

4.0 out of 5 stars i want to be a zombie May 10, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Wow, it's amazing what you'll find in clearance bins at record stores. I was browsing cds yesterday and came across this soundtrack. I'm a fan of oldies and when I saw the titles that were being covered, by the bands that were covering them, I knew I had to pick this up. This is easily one of the best cover albums I've heard. My favorite tracks are Lollipop, My Boyfriend's Back, Mr. Sandman, and Tears on My Pillow. I've never even heard of the video game but now I want to play it! Buy this if you're a fan of classic 50's & 60's or indie rock. Plus, you know this has to be good if it's put out by SHOUT factory. They released my beloved Freaks & Geeks dvd boxed set :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Companion to a Fun Game July 21, 2008
Format:Audio CD
So, the CD itself is amazing. A couple of misses as far as tracks go ("Everyday" comes to mind, although "Shakin' All Over" and even "There Goes My Baby" have grown on me), but it's still a great cover album if you're looking to introduce yourself to some 50s/60s music (except for the last track, which I believe is an original work).

I loved watching my friend play the game, and the music actually fits well with it. I, for one, am glad that the soundtrack was released separately!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Soundtrack! November 10, 2005
By Rachel
Format:Audio CD
I am not too into video games, but Stubbs the Zombie definitely caught my eye when I saw the tracklisting for the soundtrack. I knew it would not be disappointing! Not only does it have some of my favorite artists on it, but every single song by everyone is really enjoyable on the cd. Definitely check this out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Well Done!!!!! February 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I'm not a fan of any of the bands featured on this soundtrack but I must admit they did a good job at covering these 50's classics. "Earth Angel", "Lollipop" and "Mr. Sandman" are just some of the standouts. Classic songs with an updated touch. Buy it!!
