"Highly emotional, excitable, and driven" is how the official Felicity Web site describes the TV drama's title character. If only that side of the precocious teenager were more often reflected on this soundtrack album. Stultifying slow, midtempo balladry with often painful lyrical imagery is the rule here; too rarely do classic Aretha Franklin and Peter Gabriel tracks (and more recent ones by Neil Finn and Ivy) relieve the overwhelmingly "sensitive" atmosphere fostered by Heather Nova, Joan Jones, and series costar Amy Jo Johnson. --Rickey Wright

Not what I hoped for, the Felicity soundtrack

"is a little too angsty and slow-moving for me. I like the first four songs, especially Sarah McLachlan's 'Good Enough' and Heather Nova's 'Heart and Shoulder,' but the middle of the CD gets mired down. I'd like to have seen more songs along the lines of Aretha Franklin's cover of 'Bridge Over Troubled Water'. It's nice to have the Felicity theme song and a song by Amy Jo Johnson, but with the new theme song this season I hope they release a second CD with some more upbeat tunes."
Versatile, smart, fresh and classic all rolled into one CD.

"The versatility of this album is it's charm. The entire album is lyrically flawless, the rhythms can be soft melodic, or upbeat and irresistable. The heart of the album is cast member Amy Jo Johnson who sings the priceless gem 'Puddle of Grace' with perfection. Other highlights are Sarah McLachlan's 'Good Enough', Ivy performing ' I've Got a Feeling' is quite possibly the album's best song.the introduction is Neil Finn's wonderfully optimistic 'She Will Have Her Way', Arethra adds classic style, Scout potrays regret, and Peter Gabriel's "Here Comes the Flood' is nearly tear reducing. All in all this soundtrack is a must have"
One of my favorite soundtrack of all time.

"Very good selection.All the songs were actually heard on the TV airing of the show's first season (note for Lisa,the songs on the CD are the real songs from the show,not the one from the DVD version which are just crappy replacement songs).Anyway the CD is very great and each song has it own atmosphere which is very rare on a TV soundtrack.Almost one hour of pop/folk songs with a romantic feel on each,the perfect soundtrack for this very good show."
