Synopsis

Album Description
For the first time in its unprecedented and now five-album series, Music from the O.C. will be catapulted by the first on-show performance that is also the track to radio from a Music From the O.C. album. With The Subways' "Rock & Roll Queen" leading the way, alongside new and recent tracks from such cutting edge artists as the Shout Out Louds, Imogen Heap, LCD Soundsystem and Phantom Planet, Music from the O.C.: Mix 5 is a smart, sharp, indie-alt-modern rock from what is the musically hippest show on TV.

CD Reviews

Smart Mix
Thomas Magnum | NJ, USA | 11/08/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The O.C.'s is a typical teen-oriented soap opera show, but the soundtracks released are anything but typical. They eschew the mainstream and focus on smart & off-center music. The fifth soundtrack is the best released so far. Ranging from Imogene Heap's brilliant "Hide & Seek" to the Kaiser Chief's snotty Brit-Pop "Na Na Na Na Naaah", to Youth Group's fine cover of Alphaville's "Forever Young", to the straight indie-pop Of Montreal's "Requiem For O.M.M." to an acoustic reworking of the show's theme, Phantom Planet's "California 2005", there are nothing but first-rate songs."
A good album with some amazing songs
Brian Hawkinson | San Jose, CA | 12/15/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I must say that I, too, am a huge fan of the music of The O.C. They continually find little known bands that add so much to the flavor of the show. This the fifth O.C. mix is a good one in and of itself. I must say, though, that it isn't quite as good as the fourth mix. This mix has some hit and miss songs, but on the whole the album is great. I particularly like Imogen Heap's Hide and Seek, which was the season finale song. Absolutely amazing, every single time I listen to that song. Throw in Forever Young and the album is more than worth it. I would recommend."
Unfortunately I must give this five stars.
Matt McCarthy | Chicago, IL USA | 11/18/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have never watched an episode of the O.C. and am quite angry about its soundtracks. Everytime time I find a hip and unknown band, it is always on the next O.C. compilation album. Why won't they just leave my obscure bands alone! (Stars is the best one on the soundtrack. I'll admit they deserve some recognition from the masses.)"
