Product Description

The soundtrack to the second season of the popular spy show, starring Jennifer Garner, with music from Michael Giacchino ('Secret Weapons Over Normandy').

Amazon.com

Fueled largely by the endlessly inventive original music chronicled in the first anthology from the hit TV series Alias, young composer Michael Giacchino's rising star quickly led to big screen success via his first major feature, Pixar's computer animated superhero spoof The Incredibles. The composer's rich eclecticism -- one that spans a thumping, contemporary techno club-savvy and brassy winks at the 60's spy-jazz canon in just its opening few cuts -- is still one of the major delights on this collection of cues from Alias' second season. But its second half largely becomes a more dramatically focused, if no less creatively restless showcase for Giacchino's orchestral writing, the scale of which impressively belies its small-screen origins. Its rare to hear TV music that evokes everything from the brooding classicism of Samuel Barber and Bernard Herrmann to more contemporary scoring masters like Goldsmith and Barry -- with a forceful nod to mixmeister Paul Oakenfold in the bargain -- but it's all here on this compelling showcase for one of film music's most promising new stars. --Jerry McCulley

Was thoroughly satisfied with this release of early Giachinno at his finest. Sure, there's a lot more sombre cues (as opposed to the up-beat dance sequences prevalent in Alias season 1), but Season 2 is a lot more serious and sombre than Season 1 - and the music fits perfectly.

Am annoyed the Alias Seasons 3-5 soundtracks have not seen commercial forms yet. Season 2 was special, as it was the last season to really pump out the dance/techno scores during the action scenes. By Season 4, Giachinno's score has become 100% orchestral.

As a huge Alias fan, I was ecstatic when I got this soundtrack. Sadly, the majority of it consisted of slow, sad songs that were honestly pretty boring. I was looking forward to more loud and exciting songs, but there's probably only about 4 or 5 of those on here. If you like all the musics on Alias though, I'd say go for it!

I chose a five star rating because Alias held my attention without any boredom. The performance of the actors was top notch and I love any type of movie involving C.I.A. If you like Spy movies, you will like Alias.

It came well packaged and was what I had ordered. Unfortunatley I didn't realize this was the orchestral soundtrack as I was looking for the soundtrack of songs they included in each episode. Good service though.

Hopefully it's correct!

Song used on the show.
Not sure if anyone has answered your question, but the song you are looking for is, indeed, Coldplay. It is "God Put A Smile On Your Face" off the Rush of Blood to the Head CD.
