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
