AllMusic Review by

Music from and Inspired By: The Big C, Showtime’s hit “dramedy” starring Laura Linney as a suburban wife and mother battling melanoma, features 14 cuts, including composer Marcelo Zarvos' “Big C Season One Suite,” which runs through most of the cues from the series’ inaugural run, as well as the jazzy, ukulele-led theme song by Venice, California-based pop outfit Leftover Cuties. The rest of the album is populated by the likes of gospel/R&B greats the Staple Singers (“I’ll Take You There”), Scottish alternative rockers Franz Ferdinand (“Katherine Kiss Me”), Danish singer/songwriter Nanna Øland Fabricius, who goes under the moniker Oh Land (“We Turn It Up”), and soulful, Long Beach Americana band Delta Spirit (“People C’mon”), resulting in an eclectic yet uplifting playlist that inspires more often than it confounds.
