The music used in House M.D. is wide ranging, and dips into an inordinate number of genres. That variety is not really captured on this CD. Although the songs are listenable, you really have to be in the right mood for it, because of the slow, fairly downbeat tone of things. In saying that, each artist has the gift of being able to sing well without the need for a cohort of backing singers and cranked up music, resulting in a quality, carefully organised production. This isn't the essential House collection, as many of the more memorable tracks used on the show do not appear here, yet if you appreciate good music - on the same theme as that used in the programme - then you will enjoy this collection.
