Overview

Friends Again

Friends has been a tastemaker since the beginning -- just ask any of the women who went out and got the "Rachel" haircut. As with the first Friends soundtrack, this second companion to the sitcom carries out the styles and jokes of those ever-popular 20-somethings. Fans will recognize "Smelly Cat" by Chrissie Hynde (and Lisa Kudrow) from the show. Otherwise, this disc intersperses sound bites from the show with unreleased tracks from hip alternative rock and pop groups. Think of it this way: If you found a mix tape in Rachel's room, these songs might be on it. So if you identify with the "Friends" aesthetic, you'll be a sucker for these fun, alternative tunes. Standouts include rock songs like Smash Mouth's take on Let's Active's power-pop gem "Every Word Means No," Duncan Sheik's "View from the Outside," and Robbie Williams's cover of the Pet Shop Boys' "I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind of Thing," as well as the pure pop of Lisa Loeb's "Summer." Penelope Houston's duet with Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day on "Angel & the Jerk" is a punk hit, but Thor-El's rap/reggae song "Friends Till the End (I'll Be There for You)," which samples the original theme song, is a dud.
