Welcome to soundtracks! Our look at the latest offerings in the soundtrack world.

Roswell – Original Television Soundtrack
Label: Netwerk America
Rating: 
Review By: antiGUY
 
Tracks:
  • Dido – Here With Me (Theme from Roswell – album version)
  • Sense Field – Save Yourself
  • Ivy – Edge of the Ocean
  • Coldplay – Brothers and Sisters
  • Ash – Shining Light
  • Sarah McLachlan – Fear (Hybrid’s Super Collider Mix – edit)
  • Zero 7 – Destiny
  • Travis – More Than Us
  • Sheryl Crow – I Shall Believe
  • Doves – Blackbird
  • Stereophonics – Have A Nice Day
  • Dido – Here With Me (Theme from Roswell – Chillin’ With the Family Mix) – Bonus Track 

The timing of releasing a Roswell soundtrack at this juncture is a little odd since the rumor mill is replete with rumors that the show will not last beyond this season. Put that aside, fans of the show will find some familiar music here, especially Dido’s “Here With Me” (Theme from Roswell – album version), by far one of the strongest tracks on Dido’s chart topping album. 

Aside from the Dido tune that is forever linked to the series, this soundtrack offers a pretty mixed bag of music that harkens back to the days of classic alternative music. Sense Field delivers a pretty cool mid-tempo ballad with “Save Yourself”. For those not familiar with Ivy, she falls into the same general category as Dido, her song here “Edge of the Ocean” is a melodic synth-alternative hit in the waiting. 

Coldplay needs no introduction and the track “Brothers and Sisters” shows us why they have become a minor sensation with it’s Radiohead feel.  Other standout tracks include Zero 7’s “Destiny” one of the best tracks off the group’s debut album. While this song doesn’t really give us the total Zero 7 picture, it really showcases their abilities.  Travis gives us a U2 meets the Beatles flavored syrupy ballad titled “More Than Us” which is sure to pull at the heartstring of the more sensitive in nature. Sheryl Crow’s “I Shall Believe” sounds a little too forced, she is much better at faster tempo music. The Doves make an admirable attempt at covering “Blackbird” but the vocals start off too far from the original and that gives the track a “half assed” air about it. For power-pop junkies the Stereophonics deliver the goods with “Have a Nice Day”. 

There is a lot of music here that makes this disc a worthy buy, but you also get some less than stellar tracks but overall for a soundtrack the producers did a really good job in presenting a strong lineup that counters some of weaker tracks. Fans of heavier rock should avoid this disc at all costs, but if you like classic alternative or melodic modern pop rock, this soundtrack has plenty to offer.
