Brilliantly rousing album. The arrangements and performances are amazing on the best tracks such as Take A Bow and Somebody To Love. If you want an album for long car journeys that everyone can sing to, then let this be it!

Don't buy vol.2 either, or download the MP3s. Don't watch the TV show and definitely do not buy the DVD. They are bad for you and I'm going to tell you why.

A few weeks ago I was a normal person who liked their entertainment to have an edge. I love raw Blues (Blind Willie Johnson, Howlin' Wolf) and hard Rock (Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen) and Johnny Cash (I don't like Country otherwise). I like music so raw that if it was steak (and if I wasn't a vegetarian) I'd eat it raw and bloody. I like tough TV. I like Skins and I like True Blood and I like Dexter. And when I heard there was tv series about High School students who sang in a glee club I wanted to throw up. I would make it my mission to exterminate such a vile and inspid and bland thing and eradicate its memory from the collective human consciousness. So of course I had to watch at least one episode to make sure it was as sickening as I expected.

And another.

And another.

And another, until I began to weep. It had snared me in its insidious clutches and my destroyed my credibility in my own eyes. I enjoyed the stories and the characters, but my exposure of their particular horrors shall wait until I've watched the DVD and all the extras. Twice.

I enjoyed the music -me who likes his music raw and bleeding. I loved the range of the strong voices, leads and harmonies. I loved the mix and the arrangements of the blend of pop songs and shown tunes and, yes, rock. I loved the choreography and colour and bounciness. And so I bought Glee: the Music CD vol 1. And Glee: the Music CD vol 2. (And pre-ordered Glee: Season 1 the DVD.) And, like the show itself, the music made me smile and it made me happy and I couldn't deny it any longer. I loved Glee.

Keep away lest this devious piece of skilled wonderfully enjoyable delightful entertainment ensnare you too and destroy all your credibility and illusions. Don't buy this CD!

I too used to be a normal 30 year old...
<stands up> I would like to make an announcement....
"My name is Bobs and I'm a Glee-aholic."

There.
I've said it.

Watch the series. Buy the DVD boxed set. Buy the soundtrack.
And you too can be a Glee-aholic.
My partner says I've got a problem.

The only problem I've got is that the next series and soundtrack can't come quick enough.
Somebody send me some songs so I can hum through the withdrawals...

<la la la.... hum.... la la la!!>

I have been playing this non-stop in the car, I think the choice of songs covered is quite diverse and the talent indisputable. Whilst Lea Michelle (Rachel) is the main 'lead' and does of course sing extremely well, I personally prefer Amber Riley's (Mercedes') voice and style; Kevin McHale (Artie) was a revelation too! I've just ordered my Glee Volume 2... All in all a great, fun CD with a good mix of tunes- buy it!

This album is perfect for anyone. If you are a fan of music in general then you will be amazed by the wonderful renditions of all types of songs from a variety of genres.
The performances never get boring and having had it on repeat for longer then i'd like to admit you can trust me.
A wonderful all round album that is great for all ages.

Glee is an amazing program although if you are one of the few who have watched the first one or decided, without watching it, that you don't like it then you are missing out. Big time. When I purchased this I was loving the CD too. It has accompanied my friends and myself on many a road trip, mainly playing on full volume!
The reason for the lack of the fifth star is due to the lack of Mash Ups on this and Glee: The Music, Volume 2 and a few songs that are too awesome to be missed out. Anyway you should buy this because...
...well guess what I'm listening to at the moment?
Enjoy!

Some would argue that Glee ruins the originals and their favourites have been destroyed, but I would argue that it introduces many new fans to the original artist or song because they heard it on the show and went looking for it. In that respect, Glee has been a great promotional tool for many singers whose songs have been shelved long ago. In my opinion, if you like the original song, however you feel about Glee's rendition, you should be pleased that their cover has given it some much needed attention again.

For this album in particular I think it was a great start to the show. It was missing a few great songs, but overall I love most of the tracks on it. Standouts for me would be Don't Stop Believin', Taking Chances, No Air, Keep Holding On and Defying Gravity. Sometimes you can't improve on the original, but you can appreciate other versions.

I love this album. It's as good as the show.

I love the show for the humour, the characters I can identify with, and the great songs that (generally) are proper numbers rather than methods of moving the plot along.

I love the album for reminding me of a great show. The cast's singular and collective voices are all stand-out and have the ability to both uplift and cut to the bone. Every song is a joy to listen to - and really listen to these songs, people. The lyrics really tell a story; so many of the songs have been chosen to illustrate points in the show.

Favourite song is the cast's version of Defying Gravity - not at all like in the musical Wicked. But the words... the words have the ability to turn me into a gibbering wreck, and the voices singing the words are heavenly.
