Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Say you're a fearless, smart, crime-solving high school student: what's on your iPod? If you're Veronica Mars, you've got a great playlist. The songs included on the "Veronica Mars" soundtrack (featured in both seasons one and two) are drawn from a pool of strong indie talent--exactly what you'd expect from a think-for-herself individual like Veronica. The Dandy Warhols' show-opening "We Used to Be Friends" sets up Veronica's emotional struggles in the deeply divided town of Neptune. And fans of the show will recall Cotton Mather's sad, Beatles-esque "Lily Dreams On" playing while a relieved Veronica dreams of her murdered best friend-- just after finally exposing her true killer. With additional tunes like Spoon's funked-up "I Turn My Camera On" and The Perishers smooth "Sway," plus the U.S. introduction of U.K. pop/punk band The Faders ("No Sleep Tonight"), the soundtrack moves through a wide range of musical and lyrical styles, yet somehow it hangs together, due in part to the eclectic nature of the show itself. Veronica aficionados will enjoy getting to know her even better through the songs chosen for this album, and newbies may soon find themselves converted to rabid fans. --Noelle Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect mixtape for one of the best shows on TV... November 4, 2006
By Shannon
Format:Audio CD
I've always loved a good soundtrack. Most of the time, soundtracks are pretty crappy-just a hastily thrown together collection of some random songs that happened to appear in a movie or on a TV show. However, sometimes a film or show has a soundtrack that is just as important as the work itself. What would "Top Gun" be without "Danger Zone" and "Take My Breath Away?" What would "Pretty in Pink" be without the title song? The soundtrack to "Almost Famous" is one of my favorite albums, simply because it doesn't feel like a soundtrack--it feels like an expertly crafted mixtape. That is exactly the feeling I get when I listen to the soundtrack to "Veronica Mars."

I have loved this show since it first premiered in 2004 and I will watch it faithfully until it goes off the air (which will hopefully not be soon). Unlike many shows geared towards teens, "Veronica Mars" actually has a brain and a heart. And also unlike other teen shows, it doesn't use music as a marketing tool. Horrible shows like "The OC" and "One Tree Hill" essentially pack their episodes full of anemic "indie" music and then try to sell it to you. It isn't about creating a mood. Its about making money. "VM" is completely the opposite of this. This is clearly a show made by people who love music and don't flaunt it every chance they get. Key moments are often met with perfect soundtrack choices that enhance the mood, tell a story and make sense for the show. Fourteen of these songs are included on this amazing soundtrack.

SONG: "We Used to Be Friends" by the Dandy Warhols

WHEN IT APPEARED: This is the show's theme song. It appears before every episode, though they have rearranged it to a moodier, darker piece for the show's third season.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best soundtrack ever October 22, 2005
By Liza180
Format:Audio CD
I was a late bloomer regarding veronica mars. I missed the first season until some were re aired over the summer and I was hooked. I bought the first season on dvd and the soundtrack at the same time. Now I can't get either one out of my dvd or cd players. The soundtrack itself rings of neptune and our spunky blonde detective. Some of the songs are from the first season and some I have heard in the second season so far. If you are a fan of great melodic indy pop, you can't miss with this soundtrack. Even if you don't watch the show but enjoy the Dandy Warhols, the Faders, and my new personal favorite..the Delays, it will soon become one of your favorite cds. It is a must buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars my new favorite November 3, 2005
By abuella
Format:Audio CD
I bought the Veronica Mars CD cause I always really like the music on the show. It is a great CD but one of the best things about it is discovering new bands/music, like 46bliss...I kept playing their song, 'The Way You Are' over and over; it's got a haunting quality that simply blows me away. I ended up buying their own CD ('46bliss') and it is amazing. So thanks to Veronica Mars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mars Music September 27, 2005
By Cat
Format:Audio CD
Veronica Mars the show, strays from the normal course of teen drama in its writing and plot lines, so naturally we might expect the same from the soundtrack. Unlike other shows, namely The OC, the music used on Veronica Mars isnt made up of carefully chosen trendy tracks designed to sell several similar soundtrack compilations, but rather chosen to underscore the actual drama between characters. Songs like " Lily Dreams On" and " Momentary Thing" were used in the first season to highlight important moments, with lyrics that perfectly accompanied the ensuing drama. While the artists included here may not be known for their indie credibility, its impossible not to thoroughly enjoy this soundtrack as opposed to just feeling cool for listening to yet to the next-big-thing. While all the songs chosen are great tracks, highlights include "Dakota", " Lily Dreams On", " We Used to be Friends" and " Long Time Coming". Get this soundtrack and watch Veronica Mars: a show that doesn't get half as much of the attention as it deserves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic beyond belief March 1, 2007
By Arg!
Format:Audio CD
I'm a complete "Veronica Mars" loyalist, having religiously watched the show since season 1. It was a no-brainer for me to buy the soundtrack but I was surprised by how much I would enjoy it. Usually TV show soundtracks have half the songs that you actually like, and the other half are songs you can't even remember being on the show and seem like filler. This CD is unique in that it is one of the only CDs I own where I like EVERY single track. It's amazing.

Track 1: We Used to Be Friends

Probably my least favorite on the album only because I've heard it so many times. It's still catchy and a great song, though.

Track 2: I Hear the Bells

Fantastic song by Mike Doughty. The lyrics are interesting and the melody is addictive. It reminds you of when it appeared in the show and makes you think of Logan and Veronica back in the day.

Track 3: I Know I Know I Know

One of the main reasons for me wanting this soundtrack. I remember hearing it in the episode when it originally aired. It's insanely catchy and a great song to listen to in any mood.

Track 4: I Turn My Camera On

Perfect song to emulate Veronica's job as an amateur sleuth. It has an atmospheric, funk pop feel that is extremely enjoyable.

Track 5: No Sleep Tonight

Song with a great beat. A great song to listen to if you want to get in a good mood.

Track 6: Dakota

My favorite track of the album. A mellow and amazing song that evokes times past. It sort of reminds you of the past.

Track 7: Sway

Great love song. I wasn't too keen on it at first, but it grew on me.

Track 8: Long Time Coming

Another highlight of the album. Has a funny feel to it but is very enjoyable.
