Battlestar Galactica – music by Stu Phillips

Battlestar Galactica soundtrackYou remember Galactica, don’t you? Of course you do! And it was your favorite show and you’re probably dying to find the music from it! Yeah, right. Actually, it’s not all bad – for blatant John Williams pastiche, that is. Sadly included is the disco song from the pilot movie’s casino scenes. All of this music is from the pilot movie, including the rather good extended opening title sequence – even I admit to liking this piece! If you keep in mind that this late-70s show, in its entirety, was a rather obvious attempt to 3 out of 4cash in on the then-current Star Wars craze, and can take into account that this philosophy would naturally extend to dictating the style of the music, you can probably enjoy this album quite easily.
