"Frozen Planet" is one of my favorite nature programs. Anyone who has seen the program on television (or on the stunning blu-ray disc) knows that the filmmakers captured amazing footage of our planet's icy areas and it's inhabitants. But the images are only half the experience - it's the music that helps make the show a truly powerful experience.
With 32 tracks totaling nearly 75 minutes of music, this soundtrack is loaded with the extraordinary music from all 7 episodes the TV series. The soundtrack was composed by BBC regular George Fenton, who also composed for the popular nature series "Planet Earth" and "Blue Planet".
The opening titles theme starts things off in an impressive way, and the rest of the album follows suit. There really isn't a dull track on the album, it's fantastic from start to finish. I like the mix of music - some tracks are playful (Cub's First Hunt); others are suspenseful (Battle of Wills); and some are just plain epic (Scott's Legacy).
The music in this series is every bit as awe-inspiring as the imagery. I highly recommend this album to fans of "Frozen Planet" or anyone who likes movie soundtracks.
