I had only purchased this CD for the Marius De Vries remix of Sarah McLachlan's "World On Fire" and the Scumfrog Mix of "White Flag" by Dido. However, the rest of the tracks are quite good too.
First up is the Theme from the show. It's slowed down, but is exactly the same as it is in the show. The Queen and Elton John tracks that follow are digitally remastered and sound just as good as they did when they came out. "He's Hot!" is a fun track. It contains elements of Madonna's classic dance track "Holiday." There are some vocal samples from Madonna's song too, and there is plenty of voice samples from the four characters of Will & Grace. The longer version would have been better, but it's still good. It can be compared to that one track "Absolutely Fabulous" by the Pet Shop Boys which contained voice samples from the main characters on AbFab.
Here is where there is a slight problem. On the back, it says that Hex's Momentous Radio Mix of "Waiting For Tonight" by Jennifer Lopez is on there, BUT IT IS NOT!!! It's the original album mix. Not that the original is not good, but the remix is a great alternative version. Oh well, it's still a classic. Next is the Marius DeVries Radio Mix of "World On Fire" by Sarah McLachlan. This is an amazing track. This is not an up tempo dance mix. It's true to the version found on Sarah's Afterglow. It's just an alternate take of the track. I love it. It's refreshing to hear some mixes of tracks that sound like the originals. The Junkie XL mixes that came out of the track are quite good too, but those are really up tempo, and lose most of the feel of the original.
"Got To Be Real" and "Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves" by Cheryl Lynn and Cher, respectively, sound perfect. Carly Simon and Megan Mullaly's track is quite good. I enjoyed it. "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor is a perfect addition to this soundtrack. It's appropriate because Sean Hayes' character of Jack delivered the beginning part of the song as a monologue in an episode of the show. It was classic!
The Scumfrog Mix of Dido's "White Flag" is really good. I have not heard the original, but Dido's voice is in perfect form and works with the instruments and beats. The Britney Spears "Oops! I Did It Again" is fine. The "Footloose" track is a great track and is a perfect choice for inclusion on the soundtrack. And finally, there is the track with Eric McCormack and Barry Manilow. It's great. There are not that many people who knew that Eric could sing, but boy can he sing! He should cut an album of his own someday.
All in all, this collection is pretty descent. I wish that there were more songs on the soundtrack. And some of them should be in longer versions. Particularly the Sarah McLachlan, the "He's Hot", and all the disco tracks. There is plenty of space available on the disc to include more songs, or some other bonus stuff. Some multimedia thing for the computer might have been nice too. And I wish the Jennifer Lopez remix had actually been included and not falsely advertised as being included. Oh well, I can't be bitter about it. I have her remixes album that has the track on it.
If you really like at least four or five of the songs on it, I suggest purchasing it. But for the Sarah McLachlan track, it's worth every penny.
