"Trust me, the wait has been worth it.... The booklet is also
full of goodies...the sound quality is unbelievable...for anyone who
truly enjoys great music...magnificent music"
"...ridiculously brilliant....I can't see how a true Buffy fan
can live without it"
"...just as fun without the visuals...lyrics as witty as the series'
stellar dialogue.... Ensemble pieces like "Walk Through the
Fire" and "Where Do We Go From Here?" pull
out all the stops -- perfectly"
"...often-hilarious songs.... Joss Whedon...has a decent melodic
sense and a gift for clever rhymes"
"...to listen to the musical on CD is such an improvement over
what television speakers tin out...the musical itself is stupendous...for
a series that already has a cult following, the musical has immediately
become an uber-classic"
"...so perfectly captured the style of a musical....Truly masterful
"Joss Whedon and the program's actors accomplished the seemingly
impossible, balancing charged lyrics with stirring storytelling...."Once
More, With Feeling" CD is significantly more than a soundtrack.
It's a delightful audio artifact showcasing the creativity, energy and
wondrous unpredictability that defines Buffy the Vampire Slayer"
"...witty character-driven lyrics and solid pop/show tunery....
"Under Your Spell" is clearly the 'break-out number,'
a melodic & sexy pop tune"
"If you're a die-hard fan of the show, this is a four star piece
of work... There's a whole bunch of inside jokes about "Buffy,"
a few snappy dance numbers and a really bangin' rock song.... With music
from other "Buffy" classic episodes...this album is vein of
gold for slayer excavators"
"...it's not that Whedon's pop-rock songs are just clever or slyly
humorous -- they're also surprisingly solid. Melodic and catchy in a
way that great musicals are"
Daily Tar Heel
"...the real treat of this disc is in enjoying Whedon's music
and lyrics....Whedon can craft a mean power ballad like "Under
Your Spell,"... And "Let Me Rest in Peace"
is a terrific metal rock number...merging TV drama and musical theater
so cleverly and tunefully"
"...every bit as fun as the episode itself.... It's great music
done, for the most part, with tongue firmly in cheek"
"The good news is it's pretty good. The songs are all catchy...a
bonus several orchestral tracks from previous episodes are included
and the 'Grr Arrgh' is perfect.... Perhaps the browsers in record stores
will be inspired and amazed as I was"
"Along with some fine music work is some really well done lyrics.
Joss Whedon really flexes his literary muscles with lyrics that both
have good pace and are even interesting"
