Re: Volume 1 album...it is indeed quite infectious, though I find myself tuning to about 4 songs way more than the others: Don't Stop Believing, Alone, Keep Holding On, and Sweet Caroline.
Re: Tonight's episode...wonderful as always. I was looking forward to Defying Gravity after hearing it on the album. Kurt's storyline is being very well done. I was very scared for the direction they were going with the DS girl. Both my friend and I had our hands over our mouths just hoping they wouldn't dare go so far. What a pleasant ending that little plot line had. Sue's a hard woman, but obviously has a tender side. I found myself agreeing with her when she admonished Will in the gym.
My own dislike was the far-fetched reaction Artie had to the chick (name?) revealing she didn't have a stutter. That scene just did not even make sense. Both of us were saying "huh?" after that. Oh and if they didn't have money to build ramps around the school, where did those stage ramps come from? Ha ha...just a half-hearted nitpick.
Edit: Wow, they are *really* milking the music sales. You can buy THREE different versions of Defying Gravity...the one like on the album, one with Rachel only, and one with Kurt only.
