haunting music
15 May 2010 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

This review is less about the episode itself and more about the music of Battlestar Galatica in general. One of the highlights of the new BSG is Bear McCreary's soundtrack. This music is nothing less that brilliant, certainly the best from any television series. I chose to insert these comments under this episode because the music in this one is particularly haunting. It is so haunting, in fact that I nearly lost a girlfriend because of it. I had a date just after seeing this episode I was so distracted that my date thought I was being rude and aloof. I have been searching for a recording of it ever since the episode aired. For some reason the studio chose not to include it on the Soundtrack CD of Season 2. (Or did I miss something?) Anyway, the music fits to the action and emotion of the episode (which I will not spoil here) perfectly. It's almost as if the story was written to fit the music, not the other way around.
