Reviews UK Glee The Music Volume 2

The 'Glee sound' is typically based on layered harmonies, very strong 'show tune' vocals (with a couple of notable exceptions which seem to owe much to autotune) and a melody that is pushed right to the front of the mix. This can be beguiling when a track like the archly caustic 'Smile' by Lily Allen becomes a lovelorn and cutesy duet.

The song choices are fairly varied and, to give credit where it's due, selecting something like Lennon's 'Imagine' indicates that the producers clearly have only one criteria: that it's a great melody and it fits the scene in the show. No doubt some music fans will find it difficult to reconcile hearing a classic track by their favourite artist with the ultra glossy Glee makeover it's been given here. Yet seen as a showcase for the original artist, this might prove to be an entry point for a new audience to hear their music.

There's nothing on this second disc that even comes close to the towering 'Bust Your Windows' on the first soundtrack but, as a collection of great songs to sing along to this is still very much worth purchasing. Lea Michele and Amber Riley's vocals deserve to be heard.
