"It's not enough to survive - you have to be worthy of survival.",
This review is from: Battlestar Galactica Season 2 (Audio CD)
It's not until you sit back and listen to this soundtrack that you realise just how much of the Battlestar world is created by the excellent work of Bear McCreary.
This CD comprises the bulk of the music from the second season and covers the essential elements that make up the core of the show.
Using a variety of instruments from many countries, McCreary once again delivers an orchestral soundstage that you'd only usually get in movies.
Now that we're in season two you can even begin to pick out the examples of leitmotif that have subtly laid in over the past year, especially for Starbuck, Admiral Adama and Number 6.
The music is moving (A Promise To Return), bombastic (Prelude To War - my personal favourite), sweeping (Allegro) and haunting (Baltar's Dream).
For fans of the classic series there is even a 'cover' of the 'Exploration' theme which has been remixed beautifully into the track Colonial Anthem from Final Cut.
All in all any fan of Battlestar Galactica, new or old, should own this soundtrack and for those out there who just like excellent music then it's a safe bet that you'll like this CD!
