5.0 out of 5 stars Pure class, Awesome Band, 30 Oct. 2007
Ive listened to the bulk of their album tracks on Myspace and all i can say is these guys are phenomenal. They've managed to come up with a quality first album my favorite tracks being Stop & Stare and Apologize but to be honest their all good tracks and you would be a fool not to buy this album heart and soul went into it !

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant & Beautiful, 30 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Transformers: The Score (Audio CD)
I think this is probably one of the best scores you'll hear this year it just gets the emotions running and really accompanies the film well. Steve Jablonsky is part of Team Zimmer (Hans Zimmer, Klaus Badelt, James Newton Howard etc.) so obviously expect to see some elements of previous Team Zimmer Scores such as Batman Begins however don't go thinking its the same stuff either. The score contains some truly wonderful pieces, of which my favourites are The Autobots Descend and All Spark which contain what i would call very 'heart warming' themes. Not to be missed if you loved the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bear Mcreary Does it Again, 9 July 2006
With the series being nothing short of awesome in both drama and sci-fi departments its fitting the soundtrack to such a series be just as awesome. Bear improves upon his season 1 themes with some truly brilliant composing to match all the scenes in the series. There is also a nice little reworking of the 70s battlestar theme in the form of the Colonial Anthem from the miniseries. My personal favourites include : Pegasus, Lords of Kobol, Roslin and Adama and last but by no means least Prelude to War a fantastic 8min+ track that represents the bulk of the action in season 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Brilliant, 4 May 2005
I've been waiting for this since i heard the music with the full trailer and i can tell you now that if 'Duel Of the Fates' was your bag 'Battle of the Heroes' on this soundtrack is gonna blow you away both musically and emotionally. Other Tracks to look out for are 'Anakins Betrayl' and the 'New Hope and End Credits' track which contain nearly all of the key elements from the entire saga.
The DVD is also exceptional with Ian McDiarmid presenting some the best combinations of music and excerpts from the saga in 70 minutes of musical and visual delight and if you haven't already seen the 'A Hero Falls' music video on Star Wars.com it will give you some more insight into the film its self without totally spoiling it such as 'Duel of the Fates' did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, 16 Mar. 2004
These were great value for me especially since im a student, adn they are much more reliable and larger than standard floppy disks but YOU WILL NEED AN IOMEGA 250MB ZIP DRIVE or else you will not be able to use them. They are especially helpful for transfering files to and from that are to large to send over the net or on floppy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Bit of Sci-Fi, 16 Mar. 2004
Well what can i say this was truly a great experience despite what die hard fans of the orignial think i say this is a great RE-IMAGINING not a REMAKE simply due to the fact that it has been made with an outstanding story based on the orginal and is more character driven with a better story that just doesnt revolve on pure action so it appeals to people who just like a good watch and accompanied by a brilliant soundtrack.The film also uses realistic physics and generally improves the level of equality in the film with both male and female fighter pilots similar to our own miltary. Oh and lastly i cant wait for the new 13 part series starting later this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Breath-Taking, 16 Mar. 2004
Well firsly ill start by saying that sci-fi fans should definately buy this or at least watch the 2-part miniseries it is a brilliant reenvisiging of Battlestar Galactica. Now about the soundtrack well ive got to say it is very powerful and definatley creates the images of the show when you listen to it with an excellent use of japanese kyoto drums and excellent violin work. I often find this music very relaxing and also very uplifting at the same time and is excellent for listening to when working at home so buy it and see what you think BUT watch the show first!!!
