Babylon 5: Falling Toward Apotheosis

Babylon 5: Falling Toward Apotheosis soundtrackAhh, yes! Sonic Images does actually listen to their buying public. The label has, for some time, had an e-mail address set up to take requests from Babylon 5 fans to determine which episode soundtracks will appear next, and Falling Toward Apotheosis – a critical early season 4 favorite of mine – has been on my want list for a long time. A fair-sized snippet of one scene appeared on the second B5 suite compilation, but ended before some of the best music in the episode, accompanying the (literally) thunderous exit of the Vorlon ship whose master is being ambushed inside the 4 out of 4station. There’s at least one cue, “The Vorlon Strikes Back”, which I don’t even recall hearing in the show – I even looked at it on tape again and couldn’t find it – so perhaps we have a first for the Babylon 5 episodics, a “we didn’t use it in the final show, but we’re putting it on CD anyway” cue of the sort which has long been a fixture on Star Trek: The Next Generation soundtracks. Exciting stuff!
