GLEE: THE POWER OF MADONNA

It's safe to say that nothing has done more to promote song covers recently than the TV show Glee. Recently this show of singing teens got access to Madonna's music catalog, resulting in a whole episode revolving around her songs. The music from that episode has been collected on Glee: The Power of Madonna.

Most of the songs here are pretty straightforward covers. There are a few exceptions: a nice mash-up of "Borderline" and "Open Your Heart." Jane Lynch tosses a few lines about the show into "Vogue," and "What It Feels Like for a Girl" sounds oddly poignant when sang by men. And with only seven songs on the album, this is a pretty fast listen.

Glee: The Power of Madonna is decent, but if you know these songs you'll know what to expect.

Overall grade: B-
