Steven Universe Soundtrack, Volume 1

June 2nd, 2017

Sometimes, you just need the world to have a #1 movie about an Amazon and the debut of the much-desired Steven Universe Soundtrack. ^_^

There’s not much I can really say about this soundtrack to convince you to get it. Either you enjoy Steven Universe, find the music an integral and pleasant part of the series as a whole, or, well, you don’t.

If you do like the music, and have a habit of singing “It’s Over Isn’t It?” for days and days at a time, then you, too, will want to run out and get this-digital only album. It’s available on iTunes, where it soared to #5 in the album charts right away and also on Google Play

I find that not only did I remember every episode every song belongs to, I find myself thinking Lapis and Peridot *really* need a duet. Or, I should say, I really need Lapis and Peridot to have a duet. ^_^

I hadn’t realized that Rebecca Sugar herself sings the beautiful ED, “Love Like You.” And now I get to enjoy Olivia Olsen’s version of “Haven’t You Noticed (I’m a Star)” on repeat as well.  And probably the full-version of the OP “We Are The Crystal Gems”  and “Do It For Her”. Which makes me realize that Deedee Magno Hall as Pearl is the winner in terms of songs for me. The depth and honesty and pathos of the writing for Pearl is extraordinary. 

Yes. I’m fangirling. Yes. This will surprise no one.

And now I undoubtedly will sing “It’s Over Isn’t It?” for days and days. And days.

Ratings:

Overall – 10

And days. 

Soar like a comet and get this album and we can all sit around sharing jams and jam.

    Stronger Than You is my fave – Estelle is amazing and it’s such a great queer anthem.

    That said, Steven And The Stevens is the one that gets stuck in my head. And I have been known to sing Don’t Cost Nothing at work. And Strong In The Real Way makes me cry every time.

    ‘Do It For Her’ and ‘It’s Over, Isn’t It?’ remain my long time favorites and I’m glad to own them now. Pearl’s my favorite character and her struggles really resonate. Actually, it was this website and the reviews and links to the videos of each of those two songs that got me hooked on this wonderful show. I’ve been lurking on this site for a long time, but thought I’d finally comment, because Steven Universe is one of the best things I’ve seen in a long time and I’m so glad you reviewed it.

    • Thanks for the comment, Sam and for being a long-time reader.

      I agree with you about Pearl. In fact, I really enjoy that all three of the Crystal Gems have their own struggles aside from their shared battles.
      And I’m glad I reviewed it too! I can’t stop watching or thinking about it. I’d write fanfic, but Sugar has all the bases covered so well I just want to see what she does, rather than feeling the need to fill in the cracks. ^_^
