4.0 out of 5 stars Long awaited soundtrack worth the wait, May 5, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fringe: Season 2 (MP3 Music)
Many changes took place between the first and second seasons of televisions best crime drama/science fiction thriller. Some revelations revealed themselves, new questions were posed and the universe we knew doubled in size. The stage was set with new rules for our ever-ready-for-anything team of investigators. Like the dual universes, the score to the sophmore season of Fringe grew from its predecessor and expanded the scope of the strange mysteries that fueled the our charaters. Contained within is a generous mix of adventurous, solomn, contemplative, dark and tracks I would only classify as intense.

Some particular treats are "The Building Theft" a tense backdrop with a rushing violin piece playing something akin to a heroic theme in the midst of growing danger. "Reiden Out To Madness" is a variety pack of all sounds Fringe, scarry and ominous little noises aplenty. My personal favorate is "Fringe 85" a 25 second alternate theme modified to sound like it came from a certain Back to the Future year. Finally "Brown Betty Suite" encompasses all the different themes and variations on themes from the episode "Brown Betty". This was an unusual, partually musical/drug assisted adventure that plays on many Noir sounds, all you would expect to hear in a black and white movie about a lonely detective are present and accounted for.

This collection of the best of year two is highly satisfying and makes you want to stop after each track and find were in the show each piece is coming from. The only problem with that is you'd have to press the pause button, and I think you'll agree with the "Fringe: Season 2" soundtrack that is easier said than done.

4.0 out of 5 stars observer, September 28, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fringe: Season 2 (MP3 Music)
Just a short review here: There's a lot more emotion rather than suspense than on the first season's soundtrack. What's good here is a revamped version of the theme heard during the first season finale... the one that over arcs many episodes. The much anticipated 'observer' theme is present in two tracks here.
And we have the start of the Olivia/Peter love theme. My absolute favorite are the two tracks that cover the 1985 episode... the music is has a cool electronic 80's synth sound... and then there are the 80's Fringe theme. cool. a must have if you love the show.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tilton Has Refined & Focused The Musical Soundscape For An All Around Great Experience, September 19, 2011

This review is from: Fringe: Season 2 (Audio CD)
When J.J. Abrams helped develop Fringe he undoubtedly brought with him the best music team he could. Michael Giacchino who was responsible for LOST helped the show start off and then Chris Tilton and Chad Seiter took over (both Giacchino collaborators). They ended up composing a really terrific season's worth of music to this supernatural detective show. The soundscape was terrific and it boasted some fantastic thematic material. Chris Tilton took over scoring duties for Season 2 and has delivered more fantastic music, which is what we've come to expect. Tilton is definitely one of the best talents working out there and he will be a household name in no time.

The music for Season 2 echoes a lot of Season 1 and in ways branches into new territory. Like all great TV shows you want some sort of progression but you never want to forget what universe you've stepped into for 1 hour each week. The music continues to flourish and the journey is a fun one. Tilton's melodies suck you in and you become totally enveloped by the world he's creating. Certain cues deliver an emotional hit with delicate execution while others have a pulsating intensity to them. The instrumentation is fantastic and while there is nothing too fancy the music definitely has a unique sound. The percussion adds a dimension I really love and the end of the album really shines. There are some fantastic cues that scream Chris Tilton and I love it. The 9-minute "Brown Betty Suite" is definitely an awesome way to close the album. It has a great noire quality to it.

This score is all around awesome. Whatever your opinion on the show is you can't deny that this season the musical soundscape has become more refined and focused. It might be due to the fact that Chris had complete control of where he wanted to go with it this time around, but who knows. All I know is I loved the experience and can't wait for the next chapter.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best of the Fringe Soundtracks, February 17, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fringe: Season 2 (Audio CD)
Fringe's music is emotional and plays well on the show; the soundtracks don't quite recreate the experience for me. There's no real shape or progression to the album; it's just a set of sometimes repetitive, moody tracks bac to back. That said, I think season 2 is the best of them (at least from seasons 1-3). Most of the recognizable themes are well represented and there are some really enjoyable tracks. The Brown Betty suite at the end is a lark.

If you haven't watched the show, this will likely sound like a meaningless mashup of celli and synthesizers; this is one of those soundtracks that is probably for fans only

5.0 out of 5 stars Fringe: Season 2 Score Worth the Buy!, November 17, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fringe: Season 2 (Audio CD)
For those of you that are fans of Fringe will definitely enjoy this Score for Season two of Fringe. Chris Tilton is very talented and can transport you back to moments in the show with just a few tones! My favorite songs are the moments he was able to catch between Olivia and Peter! Worth the buy, check it out.
