Album Review

Firefly, creator/director Joss Whedon's hip and eclectic sci-fi series, may have tanked on the small screen, but it garnered the kind of devoted fan base that takes other similarly cultish programs years to muster. One of the many things that made the show so unique was its adherence to Western themes (as in cowboys), an element that not only informed the program's language and attitude, but its music as well. While composer David Newman — he has a famous composer brother named Thomas (Shawshank Redemption, Six Feet Under) and even more famous cousin named Randy — retains little of Greg Edmonson and Whedon's original music on the series' big-screen adaptation, Serenity is still occasionally kissed by a flurry of guitar and banjo, percussion, and pan-Asian flute motifs. Newman has taken some of the quirkiness out — to many a fan's dismay — and replaced it with chilly and bombastic action cues that scream mediocrity, but for the most part no great injustice has been done. In fact, Serenity has more in common with Joby Talbot's eclectic score for Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy than it does Krull.

Customer Reviews

Firefly... but not as we know it.

The soundtrack does just what the movie accomplishes so well... it forges a new, different looking fresh version of the beloved Firefly series, but retains just enough nuances of the series to please the diehard browncoat. My quibble would be the number of tracks which are simply tiny cues from the film. Somehow I'd have preferred longer 'reworked' themes from the film... and hey! What happened to the lovely instrumental version of the Firefly theme that played at the end of the end credits?

Captures The Spirit Of Firefly

I bought this album after watching the film and so glad I have. The music is fantastic and really captures the spirit of both the film and tv series. I would have loved the theme of Firefly but as it seems that there will also be a Firefly soundtrack I'm happy! A Must for any browncoat.

You can never stop the single

A wondrful blend of cowboy western and classical action movie soundtrack. A mark of a good movie soundtrack is that you do no notice it during the movie. Serenity is one such soundtrack. Personal highlight for me is trach 3 "Serenity" which was used during the panning shot around and through the ship in question near the start of the movie.
