3.0 out of 5 stars decline 10 Jan 2007
By elvishmonkey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Over the past 4 years "The OC" has quickly risen to the top of tv soundtracks. Pretty much everyone has one song at least that they associate with the show, no matter how much they love or hate it. And that is why it is so heartbreaking that this is how the soundtrack series will conclude. As everyone who is reading this will likely know, Fox finally pulled the plug on the OC a few weeks ago. The show will finish its 16 episode 4th season and the series finale will air some time in february, but when it comes to the mixes, this is it. And what a pathetic way for such a great soundtrack series to go out. 1,2, and 4 were incredible, and while 5 wasn't as good, it still continued the quality of the series and had a few mindblowing tracks. But mix 6 shows that the music supervisors have finally run out of ideas. The quality of the show dipped last season, and as it did so did the quality of the soundtrack, but the show came back perhaps better than ever for season 4 and i hoped that the music would improve again as well. The first episode was promising, closing with keane's "A Bad Dream" and i was pumped. Sadly however, the rest of the season hasnt lived up musically to that episode. And here we have a cover album, and not only that, a cover album of songs that have already been featured and of songs that were all far better the first time.

thats not to say this mix is terrible. there is still some good music here, but there is nothing mindblowing, nothing that even stands out. Modest mouse's "Float On" is turned into a sunny indie pop track by goldspot, and "California" a slowed down piano ballad by mates of state, though we've all already heard it far too many times. Band's of horses delivers on "the end's not near", though it sounds remarkably similar to "the funeral", a song they actually wrote. Tally hall, probably the best band on here covers the killers "Smile like you mean it", probably the best song thats getting covered on here, and while its nowhere near as good as the original, its still nicely done. The two best surprises are "Into Dust" and "Can't Get it out of my head", both gorgeous slower songs, and of the originals i was not familiar.

but the good pretty much stops there. "pretty vacent" is absolutely excrutiating, "Debaser" irritating, and "i turn my camera on" retains no qualities of the origianl.

in the end the album is inconsistant at best, and boring and unoriginal at worst. i'm going to miss this show and these soundtracks, and its a shame this is how it had to end. at least the show will be able to go out with dignity which is more than i can say about the soundtracks. A cover album? It would be laughable if it werent so damn sad.

4.0 out of 5 stars The OC = Over Completely 24 July 2007
By Brittany Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Well the OC is done and gone, but I actually purchased this final tome in the OC soundtrack lineup when it first came out in December 06. As the show's quality declined, I have to say, so did its integration of music. While the first two seasons had fabulous new artists constantly introduced - and in many cases reused - the show's tunes in the latter seasons, particularly S4, fell victim to the desire for elevator, tuneless, tracks rather than melodic and memorable musical screen moments. As such, a lot of songs on this album have a sort of limp feel to them...plenty are skippable, few are memorable, and they don't really depart in some cases from their originals.

Which leads me to the schtick of this album...the songs are all covers of actual songs - I believe most (if not all) of the original songs were at one point aired on the OC, as were the covers of them. I've done my best to try and identify where, because in all fairness, it's a bit easier than past soundtracks (the 5th springs to mind) to place where you heard the songs this time.

Goldspot's cover of Modest Mouse's "Float On" is one of the most enjoyable and replayable tunes - and played during a montage of Katelin & Julie Cooper battling it out on the tennis courts. I'm guessing the original played during MM's appearance at the Bait Shop S2.

Rock Kills Kid's cover of "I Turn My Camera On" is a ridiculously close cover of the original...no clue when either version was aired. Lady Sovereign's "Pretty Vacant" Sex Pistols take is pretty much nothing like the original. I think they used these during party scenes...

I actually kind of dig the mellow version of the show's title song "California" although this is the third time the song has appeared on an OC soundtrack (the 5th features a redux version by Phantom Planet). This song replaced the credits in the S4 Chrismakkuh ep. Ditto to enjoying Pinback's "Wasted" although it like "I Turn My Camera On" comes across very monotone after a few listens. The original Wasted by Black Flag aired during Seth's stoner 'phase' in S3.

Probably my fave song on the album aside from Goldspot's cover is John Paul White's "Can't Get It Out Of My Head", a really sweet cover of an originally quite schmultzy tune. No idea when either version aired on the show, and I'm sorry I missed it in the case of the cover version.

Although I'm usually a big fan of Rogue Wave (their contribution to the 5th album is fab) their song "Debaser" rings very familiar - partially because it features the same monotone + instrument formula found in "Camera" and "Wasted". No real memory of when either version of the song aired sadly. I do heart the Pixies though.

Syd Matters cover of "Hello Sunshine" is another fave of mine. It's just so eclectic and different sounding - just wait till the final couple of choruses for the background chords...gorgeous. The original tune has a lot of meaning for Seth/Summer - as per it played when they first hooked up, and the cover I believe played during some of Seth & Summer's parting moments in the latter half of S4.

I also dug the cover of the Killers "Smile Like You Mean It", which also originally appeared on the second soundtrack with "Hello Sunshine". The original tune came on during the Killers Bait Shop concert. Although the alien sound effects in the chorus of this version aren't to my liking, I suppose the airing of the tune during the kids desert alien road trip was suitable, and overall it's an enjoyable cover.

"Come Into Our Room" has never been a song I've liked - it aired during the Oliver stuff in S1, and the cover is a sloppy steal rather than a true cover. Passed over nearly every time I listen to this disc. I'm also not a massive fan of "The End's Not Near" despite the fact it was the title of the final ep of the series. I just don't like the vocals on this, and otherwise it again sounds like a sloppy ripoff of the original, or at least a bad ripoff of the Smiths.

Finally the album closes out with the epic 9 minute version of Mazzy Star's "Into Dust" as played by Ashtar Command. The song of course originally aired several times in the Marissa/Ryan relationship, most notably in the first episode when he carries her in the house, and the last episode of the S1 'summer season' in Tijuana when Ryan carries Marissa down the alley. I believe this cover also aired during the Chrismakkah ep in S4. Although I think Ashtar Command gets a bit carried away with themselves and loses some of the vulnerability of the original, this is a nice mellow cap-off to the cd.

Overall this album is a mixture of a couple of solid songs (1, 6, 8, 9), a few soundalikes that would make good background tunes for a TV show like the OC (2, 5, 7), a couple of blah covers (3, 10, 11), and a couple of worthy covers of key OC-lore songs (4, 12). It's a good addition to people who own the rest of the series, but otherwise not really worthy of its predecessors.

3.0 out of 5 stars As I watch it go down in flames 17 Feb 2007
By Seth W. Russell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This cd is nothing more than the same songs that drew me to the O.C. mixes back in season 1 and 2, just redone not as well by less than talented artists. Which ironically strongly resembles the shows plot line these days.
4.0 out of 5 stars Nice compilation 31 Dec 2012
By Joel A Hovis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I got this album because I liked a couple songs on it and it was very cheap. It's hard to like every song on a compilation album like this, but this is a good one.
5.0 out of 5 stars Luv The OC 4 Dec 2012
By D. Price - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Some great indy groups and songs that helped define a show and it's audience. There hasn't been anything like the OC and probably...won't be for awhile. The soundtrack enforces that.
