This Heroes Delux ed. soundtrack has got lots of different flavors in it. I really like the album art that came with it! Open up the album for the first time, and you'll find windows of art pieces that display our "Heroes" characters, as well as some of the artists on the soundtrack, which are exhibited in the painting styles we are used to seeing in the show.
In this soundtrack, I heard a lot of songs I wasn't used to hearing, and the styles vary from classical to folk to pop. There are even some flavors of latin, jazz, and hip-hop. It's an easy listen and Awesome driving music.
Some songs like "Weightless" and "All Things Must Pass" deliver very nice alternative, and rock styles that fans of these genres are likely to enjoy. I really loved These two songs -best of the album!
Songs like "He's Frank", "All For Swinging You Around", and "Glad It's Over", have a classical, almost retro pop feel, which I liked. I had never listened to these types of music before, but they were nice to hear and are easily some of my favorites.
Others such as "Man in the Long Black Coat" and "Heroes" give a very folk/country feel. There are songs like "Maya's Theme", "Fire and Regeneration", "AboneCroneDrone 3", that have Latin, Jazz, and Middle-Eastern influences.
"Keep My Composure" and "Not Now, But Soon" produce cool raps, and heavy hip-hop sounds, that maintain a nice balance in the album: a slower, and deeper mood. There are nice bands covering the background of these songs that also speed up the pace a little bit, but in a much heavier way. It really balances out the lighter, fast-paced songs in the soundtrack.
Whatever your musical tastes may be, remember that these are the songs were picked by the people respoinsible for the creation of the Heroes "World". They wanted to give you a taste of the kind of music that they like to listen to, and at the same time stay true to the core that makes "Heroes" what it is.
The entire soundtrack features the deep, mystical, inspiration and humanity, and excitement, that we find in the show! And that's the point -to be able to experience all these differences and celebrate them on a soundtrack! They a great job on this, so Buy Now! Don't miss out on this soundtrack as both an album that will remain in your classic cd collections for frequent listening, and as an AWESOME piece of "Heroes" Artwork and Memorabilia!
