I haven't had much chance to listen to this album yet so this is only my initial opinion. I think it is much stronger than the first soundtrack but it is missing a few of the best songs from the series! Also, it is mostly music from season 4, despite it being volume 3.
Season of the Witch, Me and the Devil, She's Not There and Paradise Circus are very good songs. Much of the album is very deep, dark, intense and stirring... just how it should be! But then there are a few songs which really aren't anything special.
I'm gutted that they have missed out some of the best songs of the series such as
"I Wish I was the Moon"- Nekko Case
"Burning Down the House"- The Used
"Aly Walk With Me"- The Raveonettes.
...and lots of the other brilliant songs that appeared on the end credits. But oh well, you can't have everything! Overall, the album is worth a listen, whether you're a True Blood fan or not!
