This CD captures the essence of the hit TV show Heroes, a show about how normal people would deal with superpowers.
The track "Keep My Composure" by The Chemical Brothers is great, and check it out for other great hits from modern artists.

Not really a soundtrack, just a mix CD.

"Only the first track is recognizable from the TV show. The rest are essentially "filler". If the people who put this out are going to make a mix CD, they should call it such, instead of labeling it as a "soundtrack". The tunes provided range from mediocre guitar, bass, and drums arrangements (like we haven't heard that combination anytime recently), to some international tunes. A couple are interesting, the rest are boring. This is essentially what I would classify as a greedy ripoff of fans of the TV show, since they get almost none of the BGM actually featured in the series."

"I don't usually comment on soundtracks but I feel compelled to comment on this one as it's supposed to be the sountrack for the TV series Heroes. If you're looking for music you heard as part of the show, then you're in for disappointment with this collection. Of the 18 tracks, only 3 or possibly 4 are ones that you would actually have heard in or associate with the show. The rest are, as near as I can tell, just songs that might have been playing - briefly - in the background of a particular scene, usually where there was a radio or a TV on or someone in the scene was listening to music. None of them are really ones that you make you think of the show.
Also, it's rather a stretch to term this a "deluxe" version as there are no additional tracks when compared to the standard version. The only real extra is in the fold-outs in the CD sleeve which have a few - emphasis on few - of the clairvoyant paintings you see in the show. The rest of the paintings in the fold-outs are merely artistic representations of the singers and musicians behind the other songs on the CD.
If you want the actual soundtrack music from the show, done by Wendy and Lisa, then you really want the standard version as every track on that CD is music (with some of the narration) from the show. This version only has a handful of of those tracks and costs more. There really is nothing in this "deluxe" version to warrant a higher price. All in all, this particular CD is little more than a rip-off.
