DJ's Choice: As Seen on TV -- Soap Operas features the theme songs to ten popular soap operas, as performed by the Hit Crew, a group of studio musicians. Unlike some of the pop collections in the DJ's Choice series, it's not a fatal flaw that this album features nothing but re-recordings, since many of these themes were performed by studio musicians in the first place. Although "Broken Wings (from All My Children) and "Another World" (from Another World) don't quite measure up to the original versions, "Days of Our Lives Theme," "Dark Shadows Theme," and "Nadia's Theme (from The Young & the Restless) all sound remarkably similar to the renditions made famous by television. While, of course, a collection of the originals would be more authentic, DJ's Choice: As Seen on TV -- Soap Operas still serves its purpose pretty well.
