Sarah Michelle Gellar may be saving the world from vampires but her TV show is also helping a few worthy bands get some much needed exposure. Dayton, Ohio's ridiculously prolific Guided by Voices lead things off with the playful "Teenage FBI," a strong distillation of the band's knack for the irrepressible hook. The all-femme Hepburn protest in true "Maggie's Farm" fashion (as in "I ain't gonna work on...") for the quickstepping, bubble-gum punk-pop of "I Quit." Bif Naked's arena anthem "Lucky" is perfect for staring at candles. Garbage are in suitably psychedelic glam shades for "Temptation Waits." Rasputina, the gothic cello ensemble, include the appropriate "Transylvania Concubine." The only misstep is from virtual old-timers the Sundays, who deliver a lazy-day version of the Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses." But this is made up for with the inclusion of Nerf Herder's "Buffy" theme song and Christophe Beck's instrumental theme music, which round out this all-inclusive collection. --Rob O'Connor

Simply put, if you are fan of alt rock and/or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you will enjoy this album. It is a nice blend of ballads and rockers that really sum up the general feeling of the first four seasons of Buffy. This CD is a welcome addition in anyone's collection, along with the two other Buffy CDs ("Radio Sunnydale" and the soundtrack to "Once More, With Feeling"). Below I have listed which episode each song appears in, because I know a lot of people are curious.
1. "Buffy Theme" (Every episode)
2. "Teenage FBI" (Does not ever appear in the series)
3. "Temptation Waits" (Does not ever appear in the series)
4. "Strong" (episode 1x5 Never Kill a Boy on the First Date)
5. "I Quit" (Does not ever appear in the series)
6. "Over My Head" (Does not ever appear in the series)
7. "Lucky" (episode 4x3 The Harsh Light of Day)
8. "Keep Myself Awake" (episode 4x13 The I in Team)
9. "Virgin State of Mind" (episode 3x16 Doppelgangland)
10. "Already Met You" (episode 1x4 Teacher's Pet)
11. "God is a Man" (episode 4x18 Where the Wild Things Are)
12. "Nothing But You" (episode 4x5 Beer Bad)
13. "It Doesn't Matter" (episode 2x1 When She Was Bad)
14. "Wild Horses" (episode 3x20 The Prom)
15. "Pain" (episodes 2x16 Bewitched Bothered and Bewildered, 3x2 Dead Man's Party and 4x2 Living Conditions)
16. "Charge" (episode 2x19 I Only Have Eyes for You)
17. "Transylvanian Concubine" (episode 2x13 Surprise)
18. "Close Your Eyes" (several but featured heavily in 2x22 Becoming)

I must say that when I bought the CD (after buying seasons 1,2,3 on video and the watcher's guide book - I can't seem to get enough! ), I only knew a couple of the main tracks (you know the ones! ). But apart from the theme (I'm learning to play it, man!) and the haunting love theme, you had classic Garbage, 'Lucky' by Bif Naked, The classic 'Devil You Know (God is a Man)', The delightful 'It Doesn't Matter', 'Wild Horses' (it was tear jerking), Dingoes Ate My Baby aka Four Star Mary's amaaazzzing 'Pain' but the only complaint - Joss Whedon, if you're out there, you missed the beat by not including Sarah McLachlan's 'Full of Grace' on the album. I implore you to include it on Volume 2, it has etched it's mark on every true Buffy fan, and I am not alone in thinking this. Becoming was the best episode ever, and Sarah deserves a mention. Sarah, if you're listening, ask Joss to include the song on Volume 2. It permanantly haunts the psyche (if you can relate), that's how affecting it is.
For anyone who want's the Sarah McLachlan 'Full of Grace' song, buy her 1997 album 'Surfacing'.
Apart from that, Buffy Slays, and Joss Whedon is a class writer. Nuff said.

CD has some good tracks, some great ones, and a few clunkers. As another reviewer said, where's Cibo Matto? And Morcheeba(played in "Passion") or Sarah McLachlan(played in "Becoming 2")? I know the collection was picked by Joss Whedon himself, but he could have done better. Clunker list, IMO: "Teenage FBI," Furslide," and "Pain." Tracks that make the purchase VERY worthy: "Buffy Theme," "Close Your Eyes"(any Buffy fan knows this classic instrumental tune), "Temptation Waits"(yeah, Garbage!), "Transylvanian Concubine," "It Doesn't Matter," "Wild Horses," and "Strong." Only one more gripe: I want a completely instrumental soundtrack by Chris Beck! The only track on the CD that almost matches the greatness of "Close Your Eyes" is Nerf Herder's "Buffy Theme."

Despite the gush of Buffy fans, this CD is worthy of purchase by anyone with a tilt toward the alternative or the old new wave. I bought this CD for my daughter who loves the show. Once you get past the shows theme song, you have a selection of some of the best alternative rock you may have never heard.
For almost four years, Buffy the Vampire Slayer has been appealing to early teens. One of its biggest appeals has been the music. This isn't your typical top forty schlock. The fans of the show will tell you its great. What else would you expect?
In fact this is one of the best CDs I purchased in 1999. The only song on the CD that I'm not crazy about is "The Devil You Know"
Some of the songs have a decided link to the show, such as "Transylvania Concubine" and the theme song by Nerf Herder, but even these songs merit listening to.
My personal favorite on the CD is the cover of "Wild Horses" by the Sundays. It is hard to pull off a famous cover song but the Sundays have filled their version with a haunting emotion that Mick Jagger could have never managed.
The CD should appeal to anyone who likes alternative rock and possibly even the adult contemporary crowd who swears the "New Wave" never ended.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Album is quite a varied blend of music from all kinds of artists.They all have one thing in common,of course,which is they were at one time used on the show.
My favorites include "Transylvanian Concubine" and the wicked "Temptation Waits",the flavor of these songs suiting the more slightly gothic side of the TV show,without going over the top.To cater to the drama side of Buffy,we have the emotional "Virgin State of Mind","Wild Horses","It Doesn't Matter",and "Keep Myself Awake",which are all very nice.My other favorite song would be "Teenage FBI".I never heard it before I got this album,so I don't recall where on Earth they used it on the show,but it really grew on me the first time I heard it.
The other songs on the CD include the slightly irritating "I Quit",the infamous Buffy/Angel love theme composed by Christophe Beck,and Bif Naked's "Lucky".
And,of course,Four Star Mary's "Pain". (on the show,Oz's band "Dingoes Ate My Baby" plays Four Star Mary's music)
It's probably the best song by Four Star Mary,but unfortunetely,it's an edited versian (due to a cuss word or two) on the Buffy album.If you buy FSM's album,you get the unedited versian of the song.The edit doesn't take TOO much away from the song,but it's certainly a noticable difference.
All in all,I'd definitely reccomend the CD to a Buffy fan,or even a non-fan.It's a good sampling of all kinds of interesting current artists.
