Glee Music 2: A Night Of Neglect

Yes! Glee is coming back this week and by that, it also means new music are coming your way!! But if I'm being honest, the set list for this episode is a bit underwhelming. I don't know. None of it was sung badly, it's just not a good mix of music. Oh well.

ETA: iTUnes Versions are now available. Enjoy!

Ain't No Way
I love myself some Mercedes, but I wish they gave her something more fresh and exciting. I feel like I've heard this song from her a million times before. It's too safe, obvious and typical. Don't get me wrong, her vocals are fantastic, I just got bored with it. Oh, and is just me or does she sound higher than usual? 7/10 

 All By Myself
Sunshine Corazon (Charice) is back! It's beautifully sang, but just like her rendition of Listen, her LIVE rendition of this song is far more spectacular. I also think that this particular version isn't any different than any of the hundreds of covers I've heard of it. Plus, this song will always be associated with Emma crying in her car. Just saying. 7/10

I Follow Rivers
I like this. It's not an obvious Glee song, so it sounds fresh and unique compared to most songs covered this season. The auto-tune on Tina's voice is a bit heavy, but who am I to complain? This is her first solo EVER on the show so I'll take it. Fun. Soothing. Mystical. Effortless. Awesome. 8/10

Turning Tables
Ok. So, these kids have been begging Ryan Murphy to cover Adele and when the show is actually doing that, he suddenly gave it to the guest star, Gwyneth Paltrow! Really, Ryan Murphy? Let me be frank, Gwyneth doesn't have the voice to give justice to this song. No, it's not a horrible cover, but it's just not great. To me, it should have been given to Santana or Rachel for some vocal justice and still keep the relevance of the lyrics. Sigh. 7/10

(all 4 songs)
