This review is from: Music from Scrubs - The TV Series (Audio CD)
I'll be honest - this won't be an unbiased review. I'm guessing that most people who will purchase/consider purchasing this will be fans of Scrubs, so I am reviewing it from this perspective. I am a Scrubs fanatic, and, like the rest of my kind, I know how impressive the soundtrack has been over the years. This CD is a good collection of those songs.
Obviously, the more well-known artists wouldn't have wanted their songs on this, as they are high-profile in their own right (eg/ Boston, Toto). However, Scrubs has always been a source of exciting new music for me (I don't know if the music is popular in the USA, but its certainly always been new to me). They way the songs are involved in and complement the storyline is one of the things that sets Scrubs apart from other top-class sitcoms - for me, it is unique in this respect.
So, if you recall the Scrubs songs from moments in the show, this CD is unlikely to disappoint. It would have been nice to have the following featured:
The Fray - How to Save a Life
The Coral - Dreaming of You (my personal favourite)
Men At Work - Land Down Under
but, as I said, the high-profile artists don't really feature on this album. For me, the personal highlights are:
Lazlo Bane - Superman
Guided By Voices - Hold on Hope
but there are so many great songs, and I love 'Fighting for My Love' and 'Overkill'. Listening to all of the songs brings back memories from the show and can bring me hours of joy. My least favourite song is Track 11, but only because I can't really remember where that was in the show, and even that is growing on me. It would have been nice if the CD was a bit longer, as there are other great songs from Scrubs, but the ones on the album are all top notch.
So, all in all, if you like Scrubs and remember the songs, you're likely to love this album. If you don't watch the show, then... it might still be worth a punt. Personally, I think the Scrubs soundtrack is fresh and original, and good music in its own right, but, of course, I find it hard to be unbiased. I won't go into detail on any of the songs, as I don't want to rob anyone of what should be a lovely experience, but I will say this.....THIS CD IS A MUST FOR EVERY SCRUBS FAN.
