What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

Serenity / David Newman
I'm a pretty serious Joss Whedon fan. I own all seven seasons of Buffy, five seasons of Angel and the one season of Firefly on DVD. I even bought the Buffy movie just to have the complete set. Which turns out to have been a mistake; the movie isn't interesting enough to be dreadful. But I digress.

The point is that I'm a fan. I caught Serenity on opening day, driving two hours to Sacramento just so I could see it with an appropriate audience. And I have to say that this soundtrack album leaves me seriously underwhelmed. Not because the music doesn't work in the context of the film, but because that's the only way it works. It's all cues and setup for some pretty exciting action. But as a listening experience I find it lacking. Guess we'll just have to wait for the DVD to show up. I hear they're talking right before Christmas...
