Hear Gwyneth Paltrow Cover Prince on 'Glee: The Music, Volume 5'

Glee, Gwyneth PaltrowThe latest 'Glee' soundtrack, 'Glee: The Music, Volume 5,' doesn't come out until Tuesday, but our friends at AOL Music are streaming the album in its entirety right now.

You've already heard most of the tracks, which all come from the post–Super Bowl episode and beyond. That means plenty of Michael Jackson (the 'Thriller'/'Heads Will Roll' mashup, 'PYT'), Justin Bieber ('Baby,' 'Somebody to Love'), 'Fat Bottomed Girls,' 'Firework' and 'Sing.'

Conspicuously absent: any trace of the Dalton Academy Warblers beyond Blaine and Rachel's duet of 'Don't You Want Me.' Where's 'Silly Love Song'?!

Read the rest of our thoughts on the album (lots of Gwyneth Paltrow!) after the jump.

Instead, the disc is quite heavy on the Paltrow -- 'Volume 5' includes no less than three tunes from the Oscar winner. We hear her solo on Joan Jett's 'Do You Wanna Touch Me' and Fleetwood Mac's 'Landslide,' along with her Matthew Morrison duet on Prince's 'Kiss.' (Side note: The duet is pleasant enough, although Morrison grunting, even in song, is still super-creepy.)

The soundtrack also includes the two original songs, 'Get It Right' and 'Loser Like Me.' They're perfectly serviceable pop songs, though 'Loser Like Me' really sounds like it should be playing over the opening montage to a tween-friendly Disney film.

Tell us: What do you think of the Gwyneth songs? What tracks do you wish were included?
