Overview

Like the songs on its two predecessors, the tunes featured on Queer as Folk: The Third Season enhance the series' racy story lines, which revolve around the gay singles scene in Pittsburgh. Among the many cuts sure to transport listeners to the dance floor are Peter Rauhofer's mix of dance diva Kristine W. and the Queer as Folk cast on the Hi-NRG "Some Lovin" and former Expose member Gioia making pulses race with Junior Vasquez's orgasmic-sounding mix of "From the Inside." The late drag queen/actress Divine checks in with the swooshing, Giorgio Moroder–paced "Native Love (Step by Step)," while Sneaker Pimps slow down the tempo with the more deliberate, trip-hop-flavored "Loretta Young Silks." Underworld follow suit with "Sola Sistem," awash in low-humming, ambient synths and Karl Hyde's disembodied singing. Although some unlikely artists, like Pete Townshend (whose "Rough Boys" appears for obvious reasons) and Swedish retro-rockers the Soundtrack of Our Lives (the chiming, psychedelic "Infra Riot"), are included on this two-CD set, there's more than enough club-thumping music here to fill your dance card.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
With the soundtrack for the third season, Queer as Folk remains one of the musically hippest shows on television. Queer as Folk: The Third Season is a double-disc set featuring a mix by Chris Cox on disc one and appropriately stylish pop songs on disc two. Highlights from Cox's mix include Junior Vasquez's mix of Gioia's "From the Inside," Danny Tenaglia's popular club remix of Yoko Ono's "Walking on Thin Ice," Divine's "Native Love (Step by Step)," and Cassius' "The Sound of Violence (Dancefloor Killa Mix)," all of which reflect the serious amounts of clubbing depicted in the series. Disc two cheekily includes Pete Townshend's "Rough Boys," delves back into electronica with Sneaker Pimps' "Loretta Young Silks" and Underworld's "Sola Sistim," and also shows cutting-edge taste in rock with the Soundtrack of Our Lives' "Infra Riot" and Broken Social Scene's "Lover's Spit." Overall, Queer as Folk: The Third Season is a hip and eclectic, if not especially deep, collection of music that should please fans of the show.
