5.0 out of 5 stars Bear does it again, 22 Jun 2010
This review is from: Battlestar Galactica: Plan / Razor - O.S.T. (Audio CD)
Bear's BSG scores are possibly my favourite TV scores ever. So i was happy to see a release of his stuff from The Plan and Razor. Yet another awesome mix of beautiful orchestral music mixed with rockier sounds - love it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another masterpiece from Bear McCreary, 5 Jun 2010

This review is from: Battlestar Galactica: Plan / Razor - O.S.T. (Audio CD)
Bear McCreary has done it again with what is likely his final soundtrack for the incredible Battlestar Galactica series (unless they're going to continue it somehow). His music continues to be evocative and emotional yet capturing the feel of the series effortlessly. Of course, he has been doing the music in one form or another since the show started.

In particular, the first track is a great re-imagining of the opening theme from the series, redone with vocals from regular Raya Yarbrough and mixing in guitar work reminiscent of the third and fourth seasons. There is also a bonus live version of this track which is a nice addition.

I'd highly recommend this soundtrack to any fan of Battlestar Galactica and indeed anyone who enjoys McCreary's mix of musical styles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Razor sharp tunes, 16 Aug 2011

This review is from: Battlestar Galactica: Plan / Razor - O.S.T. (Audio CD)
If you are a fan of Bear McCreery's work then this will round out your collection of the themes and tunes he wrote for Battlestar Galactica series. Really he doesn't put a note wrong and as a collector this is a must have product. Also, you can have the pleasure of listening to the music from the plan without having to watch what was essentially a filler episode for the franchise. Basically a win-win scenario for fans of the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars I had no idea..., 1 Jun 2010

This review is from: Battlestar Galactica: Plan / Razor - O.S.T. (Audio CD)
Battlestar Galactica; so much better than the vast majority of sci-fi series, now or in the past. The music to BSG, again, better than most of what's avaiable and one of the things I was going to miss with BSG ending was Bear's soundtrack CDs.

Yet here's one I hadn't heard of, and I'm thinking most other BSG fans in the UK haven't either. Granted, The Plan was shown later here than in the US, and the CD is on Amazon UK as an import, but still, I was greatly pleased to see this available.

So, how good is it? Outstanding. Bear is a true artist and it's a joy to listen to his genius. Like all his work, the more you listen to it, the more you'll enjoy it. It's natural that with any film soundtrack, it's going to relate more to that specific story rather than the collected music from an entire series, but as with other great film music, that's just a given.

Having heard the music from Stargate Universe, vainly trying to ape BSG, you realise just how good Bear is. I have to say that I'm not yet as impressed by Caprica, but then that just shows that a composer for television series needs good material to work with, and Caprica is no BSG.

Now, if only they'd make more BSG films, and need more music, I'd be a happy bunny

Great soundtrack, similar to the ones from the seasons of BSG but still with its own twists. So all good :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Together, 2 July 2010
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Battlestar Galactica: Plan / Razor - O.S.T. (Audio CD)
Very nice soundtrack. Pitty they come together with (I think) just highlights, and not a complete score for the both of them.
But the music is as good as those of the TV-series.
