Editorial Reviews

Glee: The Music, Volume 5 features 16 exciting tracks from season two of the hit TV show. For the first time ever, Glee premieres two new and original songs including "Loser Like Me," an energetic ensemble track co-written by pop mastermind Max Martin (Britney Spears, P!nk) and "Get It Right," a moving ballad brought to life by Lea Michele's immense voice. In addition to these new tracks, Glee: The Music, Volume 5 features the Glee cast's take on such classics as Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now," Katy Perry's "Firework" and Justin Bieber's "Baby." Gwyneth Paltrow makes a triumphant return to Glee and is featured on such classics as Prince's "Kiss," Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide" and Joan Jett's "Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah)." Also featured is the cast's much talked about mashup of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and the Yeah Yeah Yeah's "Heads Will Roll."

Glee's tenth CD release (four previous regular volumes, plus three episode-specific EPs, one Christmas album, one Valentine's Day collection) arrives in stores, featuring a broad selection of songs from episodes eleven to sixteen of the show's second season. Some story-related spoilers are included in discussions of the songs, so be warned.

The first general note is that the selections for this CD have clearly prioritized the more contemporary covers done by the show, with the older songs and showtunes mostly marginalized. However, compared to the preceding CD, this has not greatly limited the presence of Lea Michele (Rachel), the show's overall lead singer, who is featured much more frequently in these songs. Male vocals continue to be dominated by Kevin McHale (Artie), with Mark Salling (Puck) also making his presence much more evident on this collection than in the one preceding it. There's also quite a bit of special guest Gwyneth Paltrow.

One notable absence from this collection are any of the acapella songs performed by Darren Criss (Blaine) and the Tufts Beelzebubs (the Dalton Academy Warblers). Presumably those numbers are destined for their own independent collection.

The sixteen songs included are:

"Thriller/Heads Will Roll" (originally by, respectively, Michael Jackson and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) - the much-talked-of mash-up from the Superbowl episode, with vocals primarily handled by McHale and Naya Rivera (Santana), with Michele dueting with McHale for a piece of it. Overall, it's quite a fun piece that would make a good dance mix (though Rivera's vocals are unnecessarily overprocessed in places).

"Need You Now" (originally by Lady Antebellum) - duet between Michele and Salling that should please Rachel/Puck shippers.

Here is my review of Glee's Volume 5 soundtrack album:

Track 1: "Thriller/Heads Will Roll" - mash-up song of Michael Jackson and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The song was performed during the Super Bowl Episode (s2x11). Thriller is a classic and there is not a cover to top this original. In my opinion, their choice to do a mash-up was an excellent choice.Leads by Artie (Kevin McHale) and Santana (Naya Rivera). It may look a little over-processed song at first, but as you listen to it once or twice, you'll get the hang of how fun this number is.

Track 2: "Need You Now" - Lady Antebellum's latest album that snagged five grammys last month. It is the first ever duet between Puck (Mark Salling) and Rachel (Lea Michele). They nail the song, and the mood of the scene is just perfect of how badly Rachel needs a someone to be with (...and to make Finn jealous). The song looks very similar to the original, but the emotion by both singers make it very Glee-ful to hear.

Track 3: "She's Not There" - it's a Zombies' classic song. Finn (Cory Monteith) takes the lead, it's pretty much a solo - and i feel he has improved so much. Although his "Jessie's Girl" will always be my favorite. This song is for Finn to bring back Quinn (Dianna Aggron) back to the Glee club. The remake of many faded-away Rock songs is something I appreciate Glee for. Hey, it's not easy to remake a song, let alone appeal to the 21st Century.

Track 4: "Fat Bottomed Girls" - from the band Queen's repertoire. It is a solo by Puck (Mark Salling) and it's like a love letter for Lauren (Ashley Fink), a new member of the club and he wants to express his feelings to her. Although she thinks it's offensive, he meant it in a good way. The song is very fun to watch!

As always, there are various songs from the episodes this soundtrack spans that are left off, but some of the most memorable highlights are here, including covers of Katy Perry, two of Michael Jackson (one mashup with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Queen, Justin Bieber, the Human League, Joan Jett and Prince. Some good modern electro pop arrangements make these renditions fresh and new. Of course, there are some ballads, the standout really being Gwenyth Paltrow's modest interpretation of the Fleetwood Mac staple "Landslide" (she handles this one better than Do You Wanna Touch Me, which fails to capture the bad girl growl of Joan Jett's cover, which she is obviously doing). The fun of this volume seems to reflect the fun that Season 2 Part 2 has been so far--the episodes are getting better and better as the season comes to a close.

Overall, this is one of the best Glee soundtracks so far I think--still wish they would have listened to the disappointment of fans and included the cover of Umbrella/Singing in the Rain that was left off the last soundtrack...

We have bought every volume to date. We are suckers for Glee. WE like the tv show, even though it's a bit adult and we love the music for in the car, it's more family friendly when you can only hear and not see the video that goes with the songs. We recommend the CD's.

The 5th Volume of "Glee The Music" cd series gives us a compilation of 16 tracks from the middle of season 2. Everyone around here has been pointing out that this album is probably the most upbeat, contemporary and pop-filled of all Glee volumes. This is also a reflection of how the song selection in general during this time of the season was taken. It sort of threw-off old Glee fans that were used to a much more balanced genre selection, but ultimately it worked out.

This is not to say its a bad compilation, its actually a really fun album and a nice change of pace after going thru the soundtrack from the 1st season. It's just a bit odd to see how this album throws Michael Jackson, Justin Bieber and Kathy Perry at you and then attempts to wash it down with some slow Fleetwood Mac song.

Also, as it usually happens with me, the omission of several great tracks that would have fit well in this album bothers me. But who knows what they use to filter tracks for the cd volumes and its no use to stress about it I guess.

Another thing I don't like about this album is that there are pretty much no "Glee-style" songs. Aside from the awesome Thriller mashup, most of the tracks here are exactly like the originals... which sort of misses the point of what we like hearing from Glee to be honest. They are still good covers, but you really do wish they tried a bit harder to do their own versions.

Another important thing to point out about this album is that its the first Glee album that features original music. Both "Get it Right" and "Loser Like Me" were tracks specifically written for Glee, which is always a welcome change from the all-covers formula.
