We just finished watching this episode and this is probably one of the saddest and most meaningful tribute album from Glee that we have heard of so far. We won’t be spoiling the episode but we will talk about the album instead.
Glee season 4 is back and episode 1 is really fun. No, it did not contain any moving songs but it was one of the better episodes in this series so far.
To begin with, let us recap that in last season New Directions won national champions last year and 8 of their members have graduated. Finn, Kurt, Rachel and others. Thus they have to recruit new members.
After a mid-season break, Glee returns and for those who missed episode 14… the scene was Quinn who finally accepts the invitation via text and gets hit by a pick-up truck. Fast forward and we see Quinn in a wheelchair with a smile on her face, she survive and that is what matters most and promises to be back on her feet by Nationals.
In this particular episode, Serge will focus on Sue’s baby and Blaine’s brother; Cooper.
Will Schuester and his Glee students return for season 3 of Glee! Oh yes, it is back and we are on a roll with this first episode. As a quick recap, New Directions lost miserably in season 2; Quinn has quit school and is now a rebel; Emma and Will is living under one roof (YAY!) and Sue Sylvester is just being Sue.
This is the last year for many of Glee members and Will wants to make it the best year for them. To win Nationals but with members missing, they are not able to take part in the competition. So with purple pianos, Will ask his students to sing a song anytime they see the pianos which has been placed around McKinley High. These pianos are not just purple, but it has a story; a novel of being abandon and abuse but it still could play. Something Will imparts to the New Directions.
This is the seventh soundtrack album by the cast of Glee, a musical comedy-drama television series that airs on Fox in the United States. Released on April 19, 2011 through Columbia Records, it contains thirteen covers. All done by The Warblers from The Dalton Academy, mainly in this album we have Darren Criss as Blaine Anderson and Chris Colfer as Kurt Hummel.
13 songs in this album and after giving it a twirl, Serge enjoys this album more than Glee: The Music, Volume 5. Some of the best songs in this album would be Blaine’s rendition of Hey, Soul Sister and Raise Your Glass. The other 11 songs are noteworthy too. Somehow, Serge feels that the Glee Cast’s cover for some songs are actually better than the original.
This single contains the following tracks.
01-Proud Mary – By [Glee Cast] 02-Defying Gravity – By [Lea Michelle] 03-Defying Gravity – By [Chris Colfer] 04-Defying Gravity – By [Lea Michelle & Chris Colfer] 05-Dancing With Myself – By [Kevin McHale]
