'When I was 17, I drank some very good beer. I drank some very good beer I purchased with a fake ID. My name was Brian McGee. I stayed up listening to Queen. When I was 17.'
I've had this CD for 6 years and it's just as great now as it always has been. Nothing on this CD gets old as there are loads of different songs and tunes to keep you happy. My faves would have to be The Amendment Song, Senor Burns, See My Vest, Flaming Moes and the Eye on Springfield music.
I would have appreciated if either this or the Go Simpsonic CD contained the musical cues from the Homer 3 episode, rather than just the Philip Glass take on the end credits, as they were a huge departure from typical Simpsons scoring. But there will probably be another CD in the future and if it's as jam-packed with fun as the first two then we sure have something to look forward to.

Classic Simpsons....Suprisingly Disappointing?, October 5, 2000
Reviewer: thegunkman from Dryden, NY USA
I must admit...I was a mite disappointed when I listened to it. It didn't have any of my most beloved songs like Canyonero, We Put the Spring in Springfield, The Ballad of Jebediah Springfield and more. I still thoroughly enjoyed it, don't get me wrong. I just expected more of it than I should have. It has fewer songs than I thought after reading the back. I was a bit irritated with all of the end themes, seeing as how they are all virtually identical. I just over reacted with frustration because I wanted to hear my favorites. If anyone gets the impression that I liked this disc... they're crazy. I loved it with a capital "L." It was and is classic Simpson's Music. If anyone reading this has read my review of "Simpsonic," they may have the wrong impression as I was a little too harsh on this great disc. I was just having a hangover from the orgiastic experience I had after finally hearing "Simpsonic!" Lock this one in your rooms, your banks, your safety deposit boxes...it's a keeper!

If you like The Simpsons, this compilation is a terrific buy! The numerous variations on the Simpsons theme reflect the show's overall creativity and unique sense of cynical humor. The CD covers tunes from the most beloved Simpsons episodes and with dozens of tracks, you're sure to get your money's worth. Buy it today!

Reviewer: Neil Godfrey from Fareham, UK
Great songs from the show. Being a fan i am a bit biased but it really is good. Alf Clausen does a good job a turning the Simpson theme into another without changing the tune. It's amazing how he does it especially the Hill Street Blues interpretation. Buy it now.
