Well, it's about freakin' time! I've been waiting forever for them to release a soundtrack of the original music to this great show.
BE AWARE, FOLKS: This is the ORIGINAL music that was written specifically for the show. (Hence the title--Supernatural: Original Television Soundtrack.) It is NOT the classic rock that was recorded by other artists and requires the purchasing of additional rights and is under copyright to other entities. There are plenty of sites that list which classic rock song(s) were used in which episode, and if they're not already in your collection, you can download those songs from such sites as iTunes and create your own classic rock soundtrack. It just takes a little more effort.
But this! This is the music I could never successfully find anywhere else! This is Dean's guitar riff, a longtime favorite of mine. This is the hard-driving music that accompanied the Winchester break-in at the auction house in "Provenance." This is the...
Now mind you, this is the original music Score not the Soundtrack that would include songs from other artists. This is the melody/background music featured as themes in many of the episodes. Since I absolutely love the scores to movies, and being a huge fan of the show, this was exactly what I was looking for.
However, I do wish some of the tracks were more distinctive since part of the charm is being able to recognize/identify the music when going back to the episodes and the scenes/emotions they invoke. "Americana" is one of the more distinctive ones and I can't hear it without thinking of the moving Chuck-voiceover Impala scenes in Season Five's finale. Also great is "Dean's Dirty Organ" used frequently in places throughout the seasons. "Old Monster Movie" is highly amusing, for its main feature in the black-and-white S4 episode.
There's quite a bit of nice violin pieces as well as heavier brass sections, a mix of faster-paced tracks as well as slower, more...
While I do agree that this should be labeled as the SUPERNATURAL score and not a "soundtrack" I don't understand all the nasty comments. First of all, don't you read the track titles before you purchase a CD? Second of all, don't you listen to the samples before you buy? Amazon put 18 samples, about 30 seconds each to give you a VERY GOOD idea of what you were about to purchase. So quit you're crying and quit acting like ""idjits"! If you are looking for pop/rock songs , you can find them on the original artist's albums like Kansas, etc. which are already available. Christopher Lennertz and Jay Gruska have done a wonderful job composing the score to this TV series which helps add to the atmosphere of show. It makes great music for driving, working at the PC or studying and helps you relive your favorite moments of the series.
