Babylon 5: No Surrender, No Retreat

Babylon 5: No Surrender, No Retreat soundtrack I hadn’t actually planned on getting this CD, but two things happened – I spotted it at the local Best Buy at a very low price, and I saw the episode in question run on TNT. Since I was unable to tape a large slice of Babylon 5’s fourth season during its broadcast run, I didn’t remember the music particularly well (hence my panning of this particular soundtrack prior to its release), and so I hadn’t planned on getting this one. And naturally, therefore, it turned out to be one of the better Babylon 5 releases. The solid six minute cue covering the climactic battle between Sheridan’s rebel forces and Earth 4 out of 4loyalists is a thumping dose of musical ass-kicking, and though not quite as distinctive as other B5 themes such as the “Requiem For The Line, it’s a very good chunk of music. Another cue, “Londo And G’Kar In Trouble”, is repeated many times in later episodes of Babylon 5, and should be particularly familiar to fans, since it covered subdued and sorrowful moments for the remainder of the fourth season.
