Reverence ain't exactly a hallmark of True Blood, the decadently soapy (and raunchy) HBO series. Although this soundtrack shows a certain fealty to familiar names and indie faves – Jenny Lewis duets with Eric Burdon, Bethany Cosentino pogos with Iggy Pop – the songs (some cut just for the show) clearly favor sex, rot and fine times in between. Koko Taylor bats her lashes at lost innocence in "Whatever I Am, You Made Me"; Bosco Delrey transforms John Mellencamp's "Authority Song" into a stoned come-on. But speaking of raunch, My Morning Jacket's too-faithful take on the Byrds' "Turn! Turn! Turn!" could use some.
