It was released in 2004, the same year as the show's premiere.

Critical reception[edit]

On AllMusic, Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote, "The soundtrack to Showtime's lesbian answer to Sex and the City is much like the show itself — classy, upscale, sophisticated, well-intentioned, and in good taste, but overly earnest and is lacking a sense of humor.... As such, it's not bad as background music, but it's not compelling listening on its own terms, even if it captures the sound and feel of the show quite well."[1]

The L Word Season 2 CD is the second soundtrack album from the show The L Word.

Critical reception[edit]

On AllMusic, Heather Phares said, "Spanning club-friendly dance-pop, confessional singer/songwriters and classic pop, the soundtrack to The L Word: The Second Season showcases the series' eclectic taste in music.... A hipper and more contemporary collection than the first season's soundtrack, [it] works well both in and out of the show's context."[2]

Season 3 Soundtrack is the double disc compilation album of the soundtrack of The L Word's third season. Two discs with the songs that appeared as soundtrack on the third season and 5 songs which the original artists played themselves live on the show.

Critical reception[edit]

On Edge Media Network, Melissa Bourgeois wrote, "The L Word Season 3 Soundtrack ranges from sultry jazz and lounge, to high energy dance and rock. Like in the show, girrrls dominate on this soundtrack, leaving D'Angelo to be the lone male rep, swimming in a sea of estrogen.... Overall, go for it. Both well-known and lesser-known artists are represented, most likely giving you the opportunity to tread new waters."[3]
