Bones [Original TV Soundtrack]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Television soundtracks are almost always a losing proposition aesthetically, with a few terrific exceptions. This one, assembled for the hit series Bones is, as expected, a decidedly mixed bag. There are some killer cuts and some unnecessary junk. The opening theme song created by Crystal Method is one of the better things here; a four to the floor pumping meld of industrial house and synthetic funk. As a bonus track there is a DJ Corporate remix tacked on to the other bookend of the set.

The opening theme song created by Crystal Method is one of the better things here; a four to the floor pumping meld of industrial house and synthetic funk.

Placebo's cover of Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill" is here for non-Placebo fans (those who follow that band's every release have had no less than three official chances at snagging it before now). A real exclusive, however is in "Angel," by Sinéad O'Connor, which exudes her typical excellence and honesty. The Thievery Corporation remix of Sarah McLachlan's "Dirty Little Secret" is also a plus. If there is a complaint, it's that there is too much mid- to-slow tempo material; the show varies its mix week to week, including numerous uptempo numbers to create tension. The complete lineup here falls more on the mopey and sophomoric side of the coin, lending it a drowsy feel, for the most part, not quite suited to the atmospherics -- or comedy -- of the show itself.

    I bought for the theme song. I just love it and play it all the time.

    I love the theme song and love the beat. I play the other songs but not as much altho I'm starting to enjoy them more. There are a couple on the cd I'm not crazy about so I just skip over them. I love Crystal Method's version of the Bone's theme song.

    Lovely

    Nice music from my favourite TV show. I don't think it's the best soundtrack of all time, but there are few songs I can listen to on and on. Like Sinead O'Connor or Placebo. Or Susan Enan. Other songs are quite an average, but still pleasant to ears for free evenings.
