Christopher Franke has created some of the most dynamic music for the most original show on television. Interludes and Examinations is the perfect example of this originality. The episode marks a major plot point in the series and the music reflects this with songs which embody a sense of urgency, intrigue, passion, triumph, and great loss from its first cue to its climactic, solemn requium. Interludes and Examinations delves into the numerous personal, emotional, and political conflicts of the characters which build to a climactic, raging battle between the Shadows and the Vorlons, as well as the murder of the Vorlon ambassador Kosh. I highly recommend Interludes and Examinations to anyone who loves beautifully composed, thoughtful, and exciting symphonic music. A standout among CDs!

Babylon 5 is one of the few TV series which had a different soundtrack for each episode. The soundtracks of 24 episodes have been published. I enjoy them all. They are out of print, so I troll Amazon from time looking for good prices on used copies. I have about 15 episodes so far.

YOU SHOULD KNOW that each episode had only about 25-30 minutes of music, including introductory and closing themes, which are included for each episode. So you have maybe 20 or 25 minutes of unique music on each recording. Don't expect 70 minutes of music for a 43-minute episode.

Christopher Franke is a fantastic composer for a Space Opera soundtrack.
