Battlestar Galactica Season 2 OST Review!

June 20th, 2006 No comments

About a month or so back I mentioned that the Battlestar Galactica Season Two soundtrack was coming out today, I got my copy. Let’s just say that Bear McCreary did another wonderful job on this soundtrack. The electric guitar reminds me of the First Wave soundtrack (a show also filmed in Vancouver, BC) but not exactly. It’s unique in the sense of how it blends “rock instruments”, taiko drums, french horn, and the double bass – it’s just fantastic. I’ve always had a soft spot for the violin… and this album does not disappoint. Unlike some other albums, the orchestral music does actually sound like what they’re titled, “Something Dark is Coming”. Anyway, I mentioned taiko drums, yep! They’re back in a piece called “Scar.” You may also recognize some other elements and themes from the first soundtrack which is expected in a series soundtrack but they’ve only been sampled so you’re not just buying the same disc from before. That or they’ve been updated to make them into a new piece. I was hoping for another “Passacaglia” but I don’t remember hearing anything like it in season two 🙁 but who knows, I haven’t finished listening yet.

The Epic Battle Begins

So I bought Small Sins. Let’s hope it grows on me.

I’ve listened to “Small Sins” twice now and like Green Day there’s a recurring theme. Well, who wouldn’t want to sing about girls and heart-break?

She’s the source” has caught my attention the most. I particularly enjoyed the way he synched multiple instances of his voice and the overall upbeat melody of the track. He uses a similar method in the track, “We Won’t Last the Winter“, though it’s not nearly as upbeat as the previous. At times the band almost sound like “The Polyphonic Spree” but in other instances like in “At Least You Feel Something” he sounds almost like Neil Young. You can hear all of their influences in the music and there seem to be many. It’s a nice mixing pot of old style and originality.

Its melodic value is high but the one-beat synthesizer hinders its potential. That’s the only problem I have with D’Arcy’s work, it’s synthesized. The lyrics are fantastic but the low-key synth doesn’t do it justice. Though I’m not as an accomplished musician as Thomas D’Arcy is I will suggest using more instruments in the next album. This album’s style contrary to their live performances is bland. Though the songs are good, the album still lacks feeling and charisma. If you want that, check out Thomas’ old band: “The Carnations“.

This album isn’t for everyone but it’s nice to hear this style of music coming back. It’s worth a buy, I liked it, and it’s certainly good for some downtime or a drive around the town.

You are worthless Alec Baldwin

Download mp3 here.

Kim Jong Il:

I was sent from planet Xiron to conquer the earth
I had a terrific plan — I thought it would work
Tried to get the Earthlings all to kill each other you see
But it all went wrong and now I must decree…

You are worthless Alec Baldwin, you are worthless Alec Baldwin
You failed in every way and now my stock in you has fallen
Your career is stallin’ and you’re worthless Alec Baldwin
That’s why I blew your head off and your children are all bawlin’

Planet Xiron is inhabited with Xipods like me
But also with Balmacs who are giant bees
The Xipods and Balmacs are at constant war
So we wanted a new home and that’s what Earth was for

But you are worthless Alec Baldwin, you are worthless Alec Baldwin
You fucked up my whole plan and now Xiron is smeared with Balmac pollen
Your garbage needs some haulin’ and you’re worthless Alec Baldwin
Now I must return home a failure — I’m afraid the pit of Kryrok is callin’…

I wonder if Zavo would be pissed if I brought this in for History.
