Glee Music 3: Heart

Last week, the songs were a tad underwhelming. Good thing, Glee somehow recovered this week with a pretty solid set of songs for their Valentine episode, Heart. I have to say though, Glee is always too much! We had our "Too much Rachel" time in Season 1 until the beginning of Season 2. Then, we moved to the "Too much Blaine" in halfway to Season 2 and Season 3 - Santana did share the spotlight for a few episodes. Now, welcome to the "Too much Mercedes" era. Haha.

I admit, this mash-up didn't quite work for me at first, but the nice dynamics between Quinn and Mercedes make the song a little dramatic - a good thing. Quinn sounds lovely and this subtler side of Mercedes' voice is just beautiful. Surprisingly good! 8/10

I'm IN LOVE with this song, you people have no idea! Haha. So yes, I figured that if Damian ruins this song, I'll probably fly to America and ring his neck. But, to my surprise, his version is actually quite good. It still has that heart-wrenching feeling to it and the vocals are pretty clean. Very nice. 7/10

I Will Always Love You
A more subtle and sweet rendition to the song that may not be as powerful as Whitney Houston's version, but vocally quite good. Her key change is superb and the way she hits those high notes are impressively clean. That being said, I'm done with Mercedes' ballads. I miss the days of Hate On Me and Bust Your Windows. To me, her uptempo covers are WAY more impressive. 8/10

Let Me Love You
Not a fan of Artie's voice - not even his character - but this is outstanding! He sounds wonderful in this song. I'm not sure why they had to change the tempo of the song - way too fast, I think - but this song does things to me and Artie's version is no different. Haha. 9/10

Quite adorable! Mike Chang sounds really good on this! So much improvement! Tina, on the other hand, proves once again how great and how technical of a singer she is. GIVE HER MORE SONGS!! Good. Cute. Nice. 7/10

Love Shack
Great to see just a silly, fun song for this episode, which also sounds really good. True, their version is a little lightweight compared to the original, but it still has that energy that's infectious. I just can't wait for the performance! Oh, and Kurt's TIN ROOF.. RUSTED is just too funny to ignore! 8/10

Stereo Hearts
This quartet is very interesting. Quinn and Sam proved that they have some palpable vocal chemistry in Season 2 and the same thing can also be said with Sam and Mercedes. I think Sam's rapping is shockingly great - I didn't expect that - and Samuel, though a little generic, gives the rendition a different dynamics. Plus, Quinn's softness compliments Mercedes' power. Awesome. 8/10

You're The Top
Not my up of tea. Sorry. 6/10

*For those asking, I can't upload a different file with all the songs in it just because I don't have time to do it and upload it - my internet connections been acting up lately. So, if it's too much of an effort for you to download this one by one, look for a site that has everything in one file. I don't want to get any feedback about "getting annoyed" by this development. I'm doing everyone a favor already, and I don't understand the whining I get. :( Thank you.

You get all the whining and complaining because this is the internet... that's largely what most people think it's for.

Spend time on just about any site on the internet that allows user interaction and you'll find the same thing.

It's best just to ignore them.

Hi ! I'm new to your reviews and i spent hours reading through all your glee reviews straight from season 1. Your reviews are incredible. Just wondering if its possible to subscribe or to get an email notification for every glee review by you?
Love your work!

thank you! :)


I know. I just want to address the issue because I don't want to sound like a broken record explaining things over and over again. :)


I'm still working on it. :)

People actually complain when you're nice enough to put up the songs for us every week? Wow. Haters gonna hate, I guess. Just know that the rest of us appreciate your effort :)

I've just uploaded all the songs into a zip if you want to link to it -
I'd be also willing to do this for other episodes as well if it takes some pressure off you

Thank you so much for doing this! People shouldn't complain. They are not allow to seeing they are downloading songs that they don't have to pay for. Nevertheless, I am truly grateful for everything you have done for everyone in your spare time. Really. Great job. Keep up the good work Dam :)
