Not the originals

"This CD gets a big thumbs down in my book. While many of the tunes are valiant attempts at recreating the original themes we all love, this CD does not contain the original themes and this is evident throughout the CD. The "Seinfeld" theme particularly is a poor cut. Shop around and find the original themes instead of buying this CD."
Really Sloppy Production

"Varese Sarabande has always been a high-quality label dedicated to film and television music. But they oughta be ashamed of themselves with the production of this release. Don't get me wrong; the TV theme arrangements are, for the most part, well-performed, and the sound quality is good. But the track listing is terribly inaccurate. Were the proofreaders taking the day off or something?"SOUTH PARK" FANS BE WARNED: what is listed as the "South Park" theme is actually the theme from "Dharma & Greg". How could they possibly confuse those two TV themes?!? (Not to mention that I shudder to think of what an instrumental pop arrangement of the "South Park" theme song might sound like!) I hate to think that a classy label like Varese would arbitrarily say they had the "South Park" theme on a CD just to cash in on its popularity.From that point, the track listing on the inlay cards differs almost completely from what is on the disc. There's even a 15th track on the disc that isn't even mentioned! In this case, it's the theme from "3rd Rock From The Sun". This disc does get a star just for that ... I love the "3rd Rock" theme (this is the original "surf-rock" arrangement of the theme, by the way), and it almost never gets the TV theme compilation album treatment.So, if you don't mind a grossly inaccurate listing of the CD's contents (Does anybody know what the themes REALLY are? I'd appreciate if they could post them on this page!), this CD might be entertaining to listen to if you're a TV theme admirer like I am."
