Product Description

Get lost with the soundtrack to the hottest show on television. From J.J. Abrams, the creator of Alias, comes the action-packed adventure that became a worldwide television event. Stranded on an island that holds many secrets, 48 people must band together if they hope to get home alive. The music is composed by Emmy winner Michael Giacchino. Varese. 2006.

Amazon.com

Michael Giacchino is the rare composer who's graduated from video games (including the Medal of Honor series) to high-profile big-screen fare (The Incredibles). But the most important aspect of Giacchino's career may well be his collaboration with writer-director-producer J.J. Abrams, for whom he's scored Mission: Impossible III and the television hits Alias and Lost. The latter is a hybrid show--part mystery, part psychological drama, part science fiction--and thus requires a nimble composer who can switch moods quickly. Culled mostly in chronological order from the popular series' first season, this CD shows how the score contributes mightily to Lost's artistic success (Abrams himself composed the 16-second "Main Title.") Giacchino's signature move is an abrupt surge of low-throated trombones, which creates a deep-seated anxiety and raises the viewer's heart rate without fail (check out the end of "The Eyeland" for a typical example). But he deftly varies orchestrations and ambiences throughout, equally at ease in pulse-pounding dramatics ("Getting Ethan," "Run Away! Run Away!") and quieter atmospherics ("Thinking Clairely," "Booneral"). --Elisabeth Vincentelli

Truly beautiful music. With Michael Giacchino's score from Lost he has made it onto my list of favorite composers. I have never heard a television score that is so thematic in nature. It rivals most of the garbage that passes as scores in movies today. The music has a heart and encourages real emotion while not being manipulative in nature.

With that said, the reason the soundtrack gets 4 stars instead of 5 is not because the score itself is bad, but rather because there are some great tracks missing from Season 1 that we will never get to hear assuming this is the only Season 1 soundtrack that ever comes out. There are also some pointless filler tracks that were unnecessary in their addition.

Examples of tracks missing? In Pilot Part 1 there is a beautiful track that plays while Jack, Kate, and Charlie go exploring through the jungle looking for the cockpit and it starts raining; this is frequently referred to as the "island exploration music". It is one of the more signature themes of the show and I can't believe it was not included. Another curious track missing is the "Sayid and Nadia" theme from Solitary. Also missing is Charlie's "Moth" theme. The absence of these tracks are inexcusable especially when we are given pointless action ques lacking in beauty and direction.

Also, while the "Life and Death" theme is one of the most beautiful themes of the series, there are too many similar renditions of it on the CD. "Win One For the Reaper" is a just a slightly more upbeat rendition of "Life and Death". This is especially annoying considering they could have used the ominous and spiritual rendition as played when Jack finds the caves in the episode White Rabbit (or better yet, utilize some of the missing themes not included on the CD).

Ok, since Amazon doesn't let u listen to the tracks on the CD, here's where you can go to preview ALL of them. Go to walmart.com and search for "lost score" or "lost soundtrack" and you'll be able to preview all 27 tracks.

I love the show, "Lost," so I was excited when I saw that a soundtrack of the breathtaking, motion-picture quality score was released on CD. I just bought it today from Amazon.com affiliate Borders, and now that I'm listening to it, it's not that amazing. Somehow taking the score out of the drama and images of the show, the score doesn't quite stand on its own. In the show, it seems inventive and brilliant; on the CD, many of the tracks seem to run together with the same theme and from a technical standpoint the music isn't particularly breakthrough -- just like the standard background scoring you'd expect in a drama narrative. A lot of the CD seems too quiet, and then jolts to loud, pounding moments.

The soundtrack, though, does have its better, unique moments with intense tribal-like drums as in #17, "Getting Ethan." How awesome that they've included "I've Got a Plane to Catch," a riotous musical romp; u can just imagine Hurley sweating and running. And because listening to the music brings u back to some of the best moments in season one, it's worth buying for fans. And with 27 tracks, fans of the show will no doubt find ones they like (and don't like). "The Eyeland," "Departing Sun," "Parting Words," the beautiful suite that goes along with the departure of the raft, are already favorites. Reviewers are right when they say the soundtrack should've included Driveshaft's "You All Everybody." ABC could probably make good bucks by releasing an entire CD devoted to the fake band.

The CD is approximately 65 minutes long and comes with a lovely 12-page booklet with montages of the individual portraits of the actors. It also has a list that tells u in which episodes each musical track is taken from.

Michael Giacchino started out composing video game scores, and recently did The Incredibles with Brad Bird, and now comes the brilliant score to LOST. LOST is my favorite show on TV right now, and the music is a huge role in the show's success. While I love Giaccchino's work, I am all about Hans Zimmer. Zimmer is my favorite composer and will always be that way. I was thrilled to read in the album notes that Hans Zimmer's music was originally used in the Pilot to pitch the show to ABC, but later Giacchino came in to compose an original score. With LOST Giacchino was able to really let his creative mind flow, and in return has brought an incredibly brilliant show a life of its own. The music is not overpowering, it let's the show do its job. It does have a presence though, and it can make you curl up in tension or even let the tears roll down your face. It's a beautiful piece of score.

The tension is built with flowing string instruments and the tempo picks up as the tension does. When the tension goes full throttle he'll bring in "out of this world" percussion and usually end with a peaking trumpet (cue commercial). Track 22 is a great example of the peaking trumpet, and track 3 is a good example of percussion. It really creates the perfect mood for the stories.

The emotional pieces are usually led by string instruments complimented with a gentle piano, the most noteworthy of the album being track 26. This is the piece used at the end of season 1, when the survivors part ways and send the raft out to sea. A truly breathtaking moment that will fill you with emotion. He compliments the emotion of the characters completely, and this is why the show works to such a great effect. It looks like creator J.J. Abrams has found a new companion in the business since he brought on Giacchino to compose Mission Impossible 3, which Abrams is directing.

Lost - the music from the series
Brewster, I think you're missing a second point of publishing samples: to allow potential buyers to find out which tracks are actually on the album, since the track names aren't given in the show proper. Someone who's familiar with the music from the show but who doesn't know which name has been... Read More

Rip the tracks from your album via Windows Media Player. Works just fine. I put them on my iRiver MP3 player and all the tracks sound great!

Track Names
They're pretty unique, not at all what I was expecting. "Run Like...Um...Hell?" Interesting! It's been a long wait, so I really can't wait for this to arrive! [cheers]

Driveshaft?
Oh...how did I forget about that?! That's gotta be on here, hidden under a track title somewhere. ABC would never be forgiven if they didn't include the best song on the show. "You all everybody!" There's no copyright issues, the band doesn't exist...
