Overview

The MTV geniuses who began America's craze for real-life programming have come up with a penetrating way to examine the psyches of the seven strangers in the New Orleans installment -- sample the gang's music collections. The tracks here were hand-selected by the New Orleans cast members, and the liner notes even include cute confessional-style anecdotes detailing why each song inspires the cast member who chose it. Wisecracking Melissa offers the Get Up Kids' "Red Letter Day" and the Promise Ring's "Deep South" -- who knew she was into emo? Some of the other choices are particularly telling: Frat boy Jamie submits "Glass House" from toker hero Peter Tosh, while the sexually ambiguous Danny picks "You Look So Fine" by Garbage because, he says, "I was all about this girl [I knew in Quebec City]." Also revealing is the fact that David doesn't have any tracks on the album -- roommate eviction foreshadowing, perhaps? What is for sure is that drama's bound to ensue when you have a Crystal Method lover rooming with a Cowboy Mouth fan. Stay tuned.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
MTV commemorates the ninth season of The Real World with the soundtrack to The Real World: New Orleans, a diverse collection of music meant to reflect the tastes and personalities of the cast members. Garbage's "You Look So Fine," Toad the Wet Sprocket's "All I Want," Paul Simon's "Obvious Child," Peter Tosh's "Glass House" and songs by The Get Up Kids, Fuel, and MxPx make the album an appropriately eclectic -- and occasionally clashing -- musical counterpart to MTV's long-running social experiment.
