    Terrible renditions of great songs. Never, ever, EVER should a guy like Matt Morrison be singing "Gold Digger". I just really hate the show and the music.

  1. Not all Glee members are created equal--Cory Monteith (the show's hunky football captain) and Dianna Agron (the alternately caustic and vulnerable head cheerleader) can't sing nearly as well as their co-stars--but this soundtrack has enough star power to keep things trucking along, especially when powerhouse alto Lea Michele takes the wheel.
  2. And as on "Idol," that aesthetic is most appealingly expressed here in the material that seems the least suited for it-i.e., mushy heartland rock ballads.
  3. In context, it all has a giddy sort of ''let's put on a show'' charm; ?on record, it's basically fancy (albeit fun) karaoke.
