Re: "the music" was well used/explained IMO

The battle music were very good in the finale, I'm anxious to have that on CD.

Overall, music from Revelations will end up getting the most play out of any other 4th season episodes.

I liked some of the more subtle callbacks, like Diaspora Oratorio when the colonists were hiking off to their new lives and the variation of One Year Later for 150,000 Years Later. That one was perfect, as I'd just recognized it as the card came up.

Yeah that actually brought a smile to my face when I realised what it was.

Well, I was hugely disappointed with the music in the finale. It was way too subtle, bothing stood out unlike previous episodes such as Exodus Pt 2 or Revelations.

I really *really* hated the fact they used the 1978 music to help guide Galactica to her fate. This show has grown beyond the original. Bringing it back then only reminded us this show is borne from another show, and it was just unnecessary.

It felt like Bear had taken a break for this last episode. Really did.
You're so wrong. I mean, the music certainly didn't hit you over the head like Crossroads, Revelations, Sometimes a Great Notion, or Someone to Watch Over Me... but music isn't supposed to do that all the time.

If you pay attention to the subtleties in the score for Daybreak, you'll notice a lot of creativity, callbacks to previous themes, mash ups, remixes, and some totally new stuff.

That was great.

My favorite moment was the recalling of 'The Shape of Things to Come' on the pan out from Bill Adama at the end.

Sorry but I also happen to think you're dead wrong. I think what you may be saying is subtle and didn't stand out is mainly because a lot of stuff, especially in the battle scenes, got drowned out majorly by sound effects, which is sad. This happens a lot - the magnificent cue accompanying Starbuck's flight in Maelstrom gets severely drowned out to the point where all you can hear is the woodwinds and drums.

That's funnhy because I thought Bear absolutely excelled himself in this episode, I don't think themes have been interwoven so brilliantly since the end of Gotterdammerung.

Re: Bear's Finale Music

Aaaaaand I still want the "B-sides", some of the tracks from previous seasons not on CD yet... I recall some music cues from Lay Down Your Burdens I'd love to have on my iPod. I hope they still bring out a "Bonus" CD.
