If you know Bear McCreary or are a fan of Battlestar Galactica, I would stop reading what I have to say or anybody else has to say and recommend picking up this album asap.
If you are not familiar with BSG, what Bear McCreary is able to bring is what I would call an epic score, but not epic like LotR or Troy with large horns and brass. Instead, its a very powerful, subtle and emotional music that plays that can be enjoyed in any mood. The themes give you perfect immagination of the character and what they are feeling and what it turns out is the opposite of most soundtracks for shows that are meant to be just be filler music. Instead, Bear McCreary is able to turn the music into a character, helping lift the emotions and feelings of the character and push the story. Just the new terminator cue gives me chills or Sarah theme with the ballad of strings.
If your into a fantastic listen, or looking for music with meaning, this is a must buy.
