It's about time- iTunes finally gets TV's greatest modern score

After four seasons of Battlestar Galactica, it's hard to fathom the fact that its incredible soundtrack was Bear McCreary's first real job. Alternately rocking your face off and stretching your heartstrings to their breaking point, this young composer has done for TV music what John Williams did for movie scores- it made them cool. Let's face it; who knew ethnic woodwinds, strings, and drums would work so well in a sci-fi setting?

If you've ever seen the show, if you have even a passing interest in gorgeous soundtracks, or if you've just been waiting for his albums to become available in this, the world's largest online music store, you owe it to yourself to add this to your collection. Bear's Season 4 double album is the musical culmination of four years of incredible television, and while I'm sure others will be more articulate and more specific in their praise, I just wanted to express my deep, sincere admiration for this man and his work with the hope that, as it's now on iTunes, this musical masterpiece can reach as wide of an audience as is humanly possible.

Words cannot express

A fantastic show complimented by a fantastic score. Glad to see this FINALLY made it into the iTunes store. Words cannot express what an amazing score this is. The score is not only sounds fantastic, but it is extraordinarily unique as well - employing the use of many exotic instruments, and uniquely talented musicians. A++

This last season, Bear McCreary has created something particularly special. He has taken so many of the themes he developed for the first three seasons and made them more rich and actually guided the season, through added suspensions and resolutions, to it's wonderful conclusion. As amazing as this television show has been over its run, I don't think it would have been half as good had Mr. McCreary not been at the musical helm. I look forward to hearing more of his work in the future.
