Glee: The Music Presents the Warblers
Twentieth Century Fox
This album is a must buy for Glee fans, especially for fans of Darren Criss and the Warblers. It shows just how incredible a capella arrangement can sound. Darren Criss’s version of “Teenage Dream” was arguably as good as, or even better, than Katy Perry’s original song. Another notable song was Criss’s version of pop song “Bills, Bills Bills,” which is extremely catchy and sure to be stuck in your head once you hear it.
This album also shows us how talented Kurt is, played by actor Chris Colfer. His touching rendition of “Blackbird” is simply amazing. We finally see his full range of talent. We also hear him on a few duets with Darren Criss, such as in the melodious number “Candles.”
The album has mostly pop songs, but it shows the great selection of songs Glee chooses. They always have a balance of Top 40 songs and a few oldies, so the album is sure to appeal to all ages. The way the Warblers cover these popular songs a capella-style is fabulous to hear.
