Title - 'Battlestar Galactica: Season 4' - Soundtrack
Artist - Bear McCreary
With each successive 'Battlestar Galactica' CD release, Bear McCreary manages to produce more and more complete soundtracks that not only tell the story of the series but can literally put you in the moment alongside everyone; alongside the action.
And now, with the release of the impressive 'Battlestar Galactica: Season 4' soundtrack CD comes the news that it's actually La Land Records' 100th soundtrack release. Which makes this 2-CD set one hot mamma of a recording to own!
The whole experience kicks off with a bang as "Gaeta's Lament" begins with the faint hints of what awaits us at the end of the series and the ushers in the desperation that filled the first two episodes of the third season and builds into "The Signal."
This original soundtrack from the knockout fourth season of the Sci-Fi Channel's critically acclaimed television series, starring Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, James Callis, Tricia Helfer and Katee Sackhoff is once again fully-loaded. McCreary enriches and expands his glorious, one-of-a-kind mix of orchestra, vocals, rock, world-beats and synth throughout the first disc, allowing it to filter majestically through onto the second.
Disc One collects Season Four's best musical moments up to "Daybreak," which is the series finale, which begins with "Caprica City, Before the Fall," and brings the season to an end with the short, and yet none the less compeling, "The Passage of Time." A 20-Page CD booklet contains exclusive liner notes from the show's cast and crew.
Bear McCreary has outdone himself. One of the most innovative composers working today, his seamless blend of instruments from all over the world creates a unique and moving audio experience. His score is beautiful, and exciting, and it transcends genre.
