I've been waiting for this a long, long time.

It's been a few months since the iTunes store finally got the soundtracks to Seasons 1 through 4 by Bear McCreary, but they never got the original mini-series from Richard Gibbs (featuring Bear McCreary) until now. And as a side note, they posted this on the same day as they did the soundtrack from Razor and The Plan.

Are You Alive? and The Storm and the Dead alone make this a great album and at $9.99, you can't go wrong for getting the whole album.

Lost but found best soundtrack

I have all the sountracts for this series, seasons 1-4 and thought I had everything. And yet, when I watched the original movie, I could not find the music in any of my albums. Then, I finally discovered that Richard Gibbs actually composed the original music and themes in this original album. I'm not sure he got much credit for it because another composer took over for him because he had other things he wanted to do. You will hear the original basis for all the future sountracts in this album; but more to that, you will here music that is not repeated again. Much of the music gives a sense of solace and the sense of extreme emotional upheaval in such an event of wide destruction. I really didn't get that sense at all as the series continued. I highly recommend this album. Although I love all of the soundtracks made for BSG, I believe this one is the best, and needs to be part of your collection.

I been waiting over 3 years for this!

I asked Bear McCreary on Twitter about this soundtrack well as I posted on my blog that Universal haven't even put this on iTunes and it was going on 8 years. He contacted Universal about this soundtrack and Battlestar Galactica: Razor/The Plan. As of January 3, 2011 here it is. Favorite Tracks: 1) Are you alive?/Battlestar Galactica Theme, 2) Goodbye baby, 4) Kiss or not to kiss, 19) Thousands Left Behind, 20) Silica Pathways and 24) Battle. I felt since Richards Gibbs started with The Mini-Series his work need to be included too. Between both Richard and Bear I have never owned a TV Show Soundtrack before it's usually movies and video-games. Then I can listen to this all the time and that's truly saying how good their work is.
