Overview

One Tree Hill is a comfortable mix of music from the WB series and related exclusive material. Fans will recognize Gavin DeGraw's opener "I Don't Want to Be" as One Tree Hill's theme song; however, it appears here in a more rousing, loose-limbed live version. L.A.-based singer/songwriter Tyler Hilton, who plays musician Chris Keller on the show, contributes an acoustic "Glad" and also teams with actress Bethany Joy Lenz (Haley) on Ryan Adams' "When the Stars Go Blue." Like the Corrs' and Bono's 2002 version of the song, Hilton and Lenz' reading is softly-rocking and ready for Hot AC (adult contemporary) radio. In other words, it's nicely done, but maybe a little too safe -- which also describes Jimmy Eat World's "Kill," the Get Up Kids' "Overdue," and "Sidewalks" from emo up-and-comers Story of the Year. Still, safe is probably just fine for a fresh-faced and wrinkle-free series like One Tree Hill. And the album does take a few minor detours. The U.K. trio 22-20s get a nod with their Starsailor-ish "Shoot Your Gun," and Sheryl Crow's acoustic version of "First Cut Is the Deepest" has a nice, reedy quality to her vocal. The Wreckers unites Michelle Branch with Missouri-based singer/songwriter Jessica Harp; their "Good Kind" is simple enough, but it's fueled by great harmonies and a quiet cynicism that gives it some grit. Best is "Lie in the Sound," a languid, light-refracting number from Californians (and KCRW darlings) Trespassers William that suggests everything from Mazzy Star to Red House Painters, and should give more curious listeners plenty of musical ideas to explore. Some of One Tree Hill's competing programs might take a few more chances musically. But this set does give fans plenty of sounds they'll recognize, as well as a few nice surprises.

I Loved this soundtrack!! One Tree Hill practacally has the best music on t.v.! If you like this show, its a must have!

Ok this CD was ok, but so many of the songs were already popular (First Cut is the Deepest.....Kill....) I already had 7 of the 14 tracks on it.....as for saying it's has the best music on TV, I have to disagree w/ Hillary and agree with "ok..." - THE O.C. HAS AWESOME MUSIC!!! So many of the songs are ones that no one knows about (can you say "Dice" or "Fortress"??) as are many of the artists (Imogen Heap and Interpol). If the WB continues w/ releasing many CDs for OTH like Fox did, they're going to have to choose some better songs...

is that One Tree Hill plays songs that are not as popular at the time. the problem is once the CD is released the songs can be heard everywhere. i like that One Tree Hill tries to find bands and artists that are not as famous. unlike shows like 90210. it is nice to have a change. i am not saying OTH has the best sound track but atleast all of the songs are not over played.

This album was pretty good, but I definetly don't agree with the first review- The O.C. has the best music on T.V.! A lot of them are new (or old) bands that most people don't know about, which is awesome! (like Jem). But this Cd seriously kicks some booty, just not as much as the O.C.!

One Tree Hill's music guide isn't as good as the OC's or even Laguna Beach. The OC has excellent music, without a doubt. Laguna Beach is a rip off of the OC content wise, but it has some pretty good songs too, especially ones by Vaughan Penn. The One Tree Hill soundtrack has about 3 good songs...perhaps a little more effort, unearth some more bands/artists and they can reach OC standards.
