An amazing soundtrack!,
This review is from: Alias (Audio CD)
An essential purchase for Alias fans! This is the soundtrack to the first season, and unlike the soundtracks of other popular shows such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the soundtrack does not contain songs featured in the show but the actual score.
The composer, Michael Giacchino, is extremely talented and has worked closely with the show's creator JJ Abrams to produce a staggeringly high standard of music to accompany the show. Just like Alias, the music is fast, emotive and very memorable.
There are a great number of styles featured, from the unrelenting techno beat of "Red Hair is Better", to the intricate salsa of "Spanish Heist", Giacchino has gone to great lengths to produce a score which is sophisticated, cinematic and epic, while remaining edgy and refreshingly modern. The fusion of these styles is combined with a wide variety of different cultural influences, from Spain to Germany to Tunisia, all of which sound both authentic and original.
I think this is an essential purchase for anyone who enjoys Alias, as the music is so recognisable and reminds the listener of some really wonderful moments, but also for music lovers because it is of such a high quality, being an incredible treat to listen to as well as infusing a sweeping techno score with emotion. A highly recommended purchase.
