Though it was billed as Pinoy Big Brother’s official soundtrack, it was not the reason why I bought this CD compilation. Oh well, the popularity of Orange and Lemon’s “Pinoy Ako” was partly the reason. But aside from that, the Orangie color of the CD inlet, with a picture of salakot made me buy the CD.
So, what’s new in this compilation? Well, aside from the O and L’s Pinoy Ako, which was rumored to be a rip off of a song by the 80’s band the Care’s, it also features tracks from Pinoy local bands such as Session Road, Gloc 9, Stage Crew, Sandwich, and True Faith. Plus some tracks from solo artists such as Cooky Chua, Rico Blanco, Kevin Roy, Chito Miranda of Parokya ni Edgar and Michael Cruz.
My favorite tracks? Aside from Pinoy Ako, other noteworthy tracks are Sandwich’s Humanda Ka, which is the official theme song of a local online game, TANTRA. Kevin Roy and Cooky Chua’s Jam offers a nice upbeat tempo and a good anthem for today’s youth. Stage Crew’s Cinderella is reminiscent of Eraserheads’ type of music with its lyrics, tempo and all.
For a cheap price of P150 pesos, the CD compilation is worth your hard earned money anyways.
