Music to My Ears
A good piece on two of the best, most unsung composers in the bizness. Not long ago I had hailed Michael Giacchino's music for Lost as the best on TV since Christophe Beck's work for Joss Whedon, but I also have to give props to Bear McCreary, whose score on Battlestar Galactica is always eccentric and unexpected. Neither Giacchino nor McCreary have yet had a Whedon for a director, somebody with whose overriding vision their music can fuse, but for now their work is pretty spectacular on its own.
