I've noticed a recurring pattern in the theme of these reviews: the reviewers haven't played the game, but still love the soundtrack. That's all well and good with me, but I got the game the day it came out and played it through in about 9 hours. Not only is the game positively incredible (it actually includes a Parapa-esque zombie dance-off to four of these songs), but it is altogether complimented by this amazing collection of oldies-cum-newies. So in lieu of that, I would recommend playing the game to gain a full appreciation of the soundtrack. Unfortunately the better half of the songs actually aren't heard in the game, and those that are are emphasized over-enthusiastically ('Lollipop' especially; they got that one in there every chance they could), but they all fit the same motif, and the motif, as a whole, is just plain fun. Who hasn't fantasized about walking around a pseudo-futuristic 1950's metropolis as an undead travelling salesman from the 30s? I know I have.
Sceptics and elitists will be glad (or apathetic) to know that these new bands (none of which I am particularly fond of myself) have not butchered the sounds of the older songs at all, but have instead revived them into something new and different, something contemporary, something that is, frankly, completely kick-ass.
Good for music-lovers, amazing for fans of the game.
Songs such as Rogue Wave's "Everyday" and Milton Mapes' "Lonesome Town" get a new, hazy-lazy-day feel to them that is both touching and inspiring. On the other end of the spectrum, Phantom Planet's "The Living Dead" and Rose Hill Drive's "Shakin' All Over" get an updated, funk-rock sound which reminds the listener what "psychedelic" means.
Overall, this album is a great mix of pop and alt-funk, with some lovely lounge sounds to keep us interested. It is not often a game soundtrack can hold its own. This album does just that.
I like how many artists gave their renditions...
If you like this... Give "The Bird has Flown" a shot...
Both CDs have Ben Kweller on them.
Worthwhile listen for old and young....
