Pleasantly out of the ordinary.
on May 17, 2002
Though the show itself could at times (and not undeservedly) be described as a "soap opera with aliens," one of the best things Roswell brought to its fans over three seasons was its soundtrack. After two of those seasons spent sharing a network with programs such as Pop Stars (though no offense intended to any whom might be a fan of that particular program), it could be thought that a show such as Roswell would showcase little more than the mainstream music one might just as easily hear by turning on a radio and tuning into the nearest 'hit music' station.
Fortunately, we were given something a bit more thoughtful than that. I have always been a fan of Roswell's music perhaps as much as the show itself, and the soundtrack does not disappoint. With a lovely variety of many genres and artists, many European, but not without those that are more familiar to a general audience (such as Sarah McLachlan and Sheryl Crow), it is certain to be a good CD for anyone who is in the mood for an album that is largely mellow and exclusive of love songs, without losing its relevancy toward the show along the way.
