Babylon 5 isn't Babylon 5 without Christopher Franke

I've been a fan of both Babylon 5 and Christopher Franke's outstanding music from the series since the beginning. The music has always been far different to anything else out there, matching the series' futuristic/other-worldly feel. It's safe to say that the series just wouldn't have been the same without him. You can definitely see why the show's producers sometimes chose to have entire scenes with just the music playing rather than the usual sound-effects or dialogue. This soundtrack is no different and I am really pleased they chose to release this album, since they never released an album of the music from the last TV movie, "Legend Of The Rangers", which was also good. Right from the start, the music on this album is stirring and moving, with a new version of the theme from the final TV episode, "Sleeping In Light". This is followed by the main title for this particular story, which is a lot like the main titles made previously. I especially liked the extended version at the end of the album. As for the rest of the album, the first half (for the first story) helps capture the unsettling, shiver-enducing darkness that comes with the theme of demonic possession in the story. However, the last couple of tracks (particularly the "Epilogue") are surprisingly moving, just like the first track. The second half is more sci-fi themed and some tracks are even more action-themed, similar to previous soundtracks from the TV series. I highly recommend this soundtrack, whether you're a fan of B5, Christopher Franke or just like New-Age/electronic style music. I personally can't stop listening to some of the tracks and I hope you love them just as much. Finally, I just want to say that I'm really glad iTunes has some of Christopher Franke's solo albums, which I never even knew existed and which I'm gradually downloading. I'd love to see more of his music on here, especially all of the previous Babylon 5 soundtracks.

Babylon 5: Lost Tales Soundtrack

Music that is well up to Christopher Franke's usual very high standard - evocative, moving, memorable and stirring all at the same time. Let down only by the turgid and lacklustre DVD from which the soundtrack is taken, but that's a different review for a different place! This soundtrack is a very worthy addition to any collection. Very highly recommended, as is Franke's other music.

B5 + Franke = Sheer Class

As usual, Christopher Franke serves up some beautiful and haunting music to accentuate the beauty of Babylon 5's writing and drama.
When Babylon 5 was first aired, for me, it was the music that separated it from the likes of Star Trek. The way that Christopher Franke write beautiful music to go alongside such television is brilliant and i can think of no other score artist that could do it.
The fact that Babylon 5 endures is in no small part to the brilliance of Franke's musical score.
