The Walking Dead Vol. 1

Original soundtrack to the hit AMC TV series' third season. Two incendiary tracks debuted in the first half of Season 3: Emily Kinney and Lauren Cohan's powerful Folk elegy "The Parting Glass," and Baby Bee's guitar-heavy zombie blues jam "Love Bug." Jamie N Commons' "Lead Me Home" will figure prominently in Episode 12, followed by Fink's "Warm Shadow" (Dactyl Remix) in Episode 13, and Voxhaul Broadcast's "You Are the Wilderness" in Episode 14, all leading up to the album's release date. In addition, the compilation includes previously unreleased material including "Sinking Man" from multi-platinum selling Icelandic alternative Folk sensation Of Monsters And Men, an UNKLE remix of composer Bear McCreary's "Main Title Theme Song," Delta Spir

    The Walking Dead Original Soundtrack Vol. 1. First of all, instead of putting the powerful, mood setting, theme that we fans love to listen to at the beginning of each episode, we get a piece of crap “remix” that sounds like someone is having a seizure with some fake computer generated whiny sound. I am a purist and I love originals. The original theme for The Walking Dead is absolutely amazing. The strings are so emotion evoking and fit this awesome series perfectly. You can hear some of the original behind the really annoying pinging sound that resonates throughout the entire…whatever this noise is. The people who put together this collection of Walking Dead music have done the fans a real disservice by not including the original theme on this CD. The rest of this CD is great. There are two songs that are favorites of mine that make this a worthwhile investment. The first is Take Me Home. Awesome song. Jamie N Commons’ vocals are hypnotic. The second is Warm Shadow. It is a remix, but it is so simple with an acoustic guitar you get lost in it. Wow, I have to find the original of this one. I would have easily given this 5 stars if the original theme of The Walking Dead was on it. Extremely disappointing. Don’t get it if the only song you like is the theme, because it isn’t on this CD. If you want some great music, except for track number 2. Get it.

    Where is the amazing Bear McCreary score!?, March 22, 2013

    While there are some decent songs on this failed excuse of a “soundtrack” album, this release in an insult to the fans and the composer of the show. The artists on this album deserve to have their music released, but this should have been an accompaniment album or tracks of an actual original soundtrack album that features the terrific score composed by Bear McCreary. Whats worse, they didn’t even put the original theme on this CD, but instead a horrific remix version. Listening to this album only makes me desire the music that truly reflects the exciting and emotional intensity of The Walking Dead, and that is the original score.

    This doesn’t have any of the GOOD music from the show, March 19, 2013
    By 

    OK, I know there are people who will really enjoy this album, but so much of the energy and excitement from the show comes from Bear McCreary’s score. You can’t help but feel the hair on the back of your neck stand up on end once the opening titles start, and the instrumental music throughout the rest of the series is fantastic as well. The fact that this album doesn’t contain ANY of that music is extremely disappointing. It’s just a random collection of songs that they decided to use in the show. Considering it’s less than 29 minutes long, they could have easily included a large portion of the score from the first 2 seasons on this disc. The reason why they refuse to do so escapes me.

    Now, to be fair, there will probably be a good deal of people who will listen to and enjoy this album. When I listen to the songs on it, however, all I’m left with is an emptiness inside, as if someone reached into my chest and pulled out my heart (and than ate it).
