    I'm not sure if this is news but I just discovered that the CD with the scores for The Plan and Razor is up for pre-order at Amazon.com and CD Wow.

    February 16, 2010 is listed as the release date. Sweet ...

    I haven't seen The Plan yet but that sure sounds promising :D.


    Cool!

    Speaking of Mardi Gras: How's New Orleans doing these days? It's been somewhat off the radar here post Katrina. I hope the city and its people have managed to get back on their feet again.

    Ok. No jobs here (but who has jobs these days?)

    I'm not from NOLA originally...but after living here for 3 years, I can say its like living in a 19th century wooden amusement park that's in a slow decay which is populated by extras from the X Files.
    Neither of which are entirely good or bad things.

    I wish we had more BSG fans tho!

    New BSG soundtrack released on Feb 16th? I want to go to there.

    Can't wait to listen the track when Pegasus makes its escape. I'm also really looking forward to the track where Cavil(s) get airlocked at the end of "The Plan"

    Weird that there is no mention of it from LaLaLand yet.

    I'll pre-order on Amazon, and then likely cancel said pre-order when LaLaLand offers it.

    Amazon always has it up first, and I always wait for LaLaLand (or that shop they like) to offer preorders for one week early, signed copies.

    Best Buy also has it listed, but as "The Plan", with no mention of "Razor."

    ^^Awesome! :D :D Thanks a lot, I can't believe I didn't think to check Youtube. Still can't wait for the CD, but this will tide me over.

    Yeah, I think it's tricky on the job front just about everywhere right now.


    Wow, it certainly sounds, well, interesting. I can certainly picture the decaying wooden bit but I'm not quite sure about the X Files characters :D.

    I do need to go see New Orleans sooner or later, though.


    Always a good thing to have :).

    Just bumping this. They have some artwork up at Amazon.com. They've also changed the release date to 23/2/2010.

    Not sure if it's been mentioned here, but you can buy an audio and video copy of the BSG Orchestra live version of Apocalypse on iTunes... it's just a little hard to find because they fraked up the Artist fields to put the videographer instead of Bear's name. It went up when all the BSG albums went up on iTunes. I'm guessing this is the same version that will be the last track on the CD, which brings me to my next point...

    Bear released a tracklist for the CD... it's gonna totally rock as usual, it appears. What's interesting is he seemed to arrange it in events chronological order-ish, rather than grouping the Plan tracks together and the Razor tracks together.

    Also... Bear announced Scott Ian of Anthrax will be contributing tracks to a slight remix of the Apocalypse from The Plan's end credits for track 1.

    BTW, has anyone checked out Dark Void (the video game) or Human Target? Bear's been working on the music for both, and they both kick some serious behind. He's been blogging extensively on that and Caprica's scores.

    Human Target in particular has impressed me... he's writing for a 60 piece orchestra on a weekly basis.

    Lets just say I'll be getting a LOT of Bear McCreary - both Razor/The Plan and Dark Void soundtracks come out this month.

    i'm very happy with what i've heard from dark void and i'll definitely be picking that up. it sounds like a mesh of BSG and caprica and all new material, to me it's almost more appealing than razor and the plan, but i might be alone there.

    Nope, right there with you...although to be fair, it probably had more money allocated to the score budget... and a more grand vision of the directors for the music than Razor and The Plan. I'm excited about the BSG soundtrack in its own right though.

    I'm excited because it's basically BSG score with big bombastic brass instruments added with an orchestra more than twice the size...

    I played the DV demo and saw a trailer or a clip from HT. To be honest, I wasn't really impressed by either. But I think that has more to do with each product than Bear's music which I only had a very, very small chance to sample in either case.


    Btw. I placed an order to the "The Plan / Razor" soundtrack. Now all I have to do is manage to wait for three frakkin' weeks :D.
