More varied than Season 2, overall a better album

In my review for BSG Season 2, I complained that the album sounded homogenous. Season 3’s soundtrack album presents greater variety, and while it may not have any tracks to rival the standouts from Season 2, on the whole I like it more.

The first cut, “A Distant Sadness,” starts the album off with the Indian-inspired music which defines this season, and makes a good bookend together with the last two tracks on the album. It moves into ethnic female vocals wailing, and loses some points from me for that.

There’s plenty of the classic BSG sound on this album. “Admiral and Commander” is a quiet, calm statement of the Celtic-flavored Adama family theme. “Violence and Variations” is energetic strings, somewhat sinister in places. The taiko drums return in the butch “Fight Night” and “Storming New Caprica.” The latter track seems like an attempt to re-create the success of “Prelude to War” from Season 2, but with the addition of bagpipes. I don’t think it succeeds as well; it seems smoother, less martial. There’s plenty of mystical stuff in “Temple of Five” and “Mandala in the Clouds.”

Tracks like “The Dance,” which is a textbook Irish jig, and “Battlestar Sonatica” pretty much are what the track titles say they are. Fun, but not groundbreaking. Of more interest is “Dirty Hands,” which the composer describes as a “working man’s blues,” played with the instruments familiar to the BSG universe. On his blog, which every fan of the BSG scores should consider required reading, Bear describes how this piece of score was inspired by a piece Shirley Walker wrote for Batman: The Animated Series. Yay! Another standout is “Kat’s Sacrifice,” which may be my favorite track on the album. It underscores the loss of a supporting character with sadness and soaring grace. It reminds me of the score from the “Final Fight” in the last episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but don’t let that scare you off.

Finally, a word about “All Along the Watchtower,” the hyped last track. It’s not my favorite song, and for some reason, the arrangement on the CD always sounds a little anemic to me, which it didn’t on the show. It is interesting, but I think I prefer the lead-in track, “Heeding the Call.”

Request: “Dirty Hands,” “Kat’s Sacrifice,” “Heeding the Call,” “Admiral and Commander.” “Adama Falls” has a nice statement of fan-favorite Roslin and Adama theme.
Avoid: “Wayward Soldier,” which is strings ostinato and taiko drums without adding anything new or interesting.
