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

adg1034,

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

kdigital,

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++

About Bear McCreary

Score composer Bear McCreary was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on February 17, 1979, the son of the writer Laura Kalpakian. He obtained degrees in composition and recording arts from the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California and became a protégé of the film composer Elmer Bernstein, for whom he reconstructed and re-orchestrated the score for the 1963 film Kings of the Sun, resulting in a new recording of the music. After scoring a number of short films in the late '90s and early 2000s, McCreary was hired to compose the music for a new version of the television series Battlestar Galactica, which premiered on the Sci Fi Channel in 2004. Soundtrack albums of his music were released in 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2009 by La-La Land Records, corresponding to the four seasons of the series. During that time, he also scored the straight-to-video film Rest Stop (released by PlanR) and its sequel, Rest Stop: Don't Look Back (released by La-La Land.), as well as another straight-to-video feature, Wrong Turn 2: Dead End (La-La Land). The label also issued his music for the Fox TV series Eureka and Sci Fi Channel's Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, both in 2008. His score for the pilot episode of the Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica was released in 2009, and he stayed on to write for the series' full one-season run. That same year, he was tapped to score AMC's popular zombie drama series The Walking Dead, which premiered in October 2010. Over the next few years McCreary's talents becoming increasingly in-demand as he took jobs scoring NBC's superhero drama The Cape (2011), the historical fantasy series Da Vinci's Demons (2013), and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013), just to name a few. In 2015, the first of his Billboard-charting soundtracks to the STARZ time-travel series Outlander was released by Relativity Records. The following year brought a string of film scores in the horror realm that included The Forest, The Boy, and 10 Cloverfield Lane. ~ William Ruhlmann
