Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Creator/producer Joel Surnow's hit action-suspense series largely turns on an innovative fusion of real-time plot line delivered by aggressive camera work and multi-frame editing technique. But no small part of the show's intensely propulsive drive -- and much of its dramatic tension and atmospheric textures -- are consistently delivered by the music of young composer Sean Callery, who's won three straight Emmy nominations (winning once) for his contributions to the series. The composer personally selected and annotated the tracks for this anthology of his best work from the show's first three seasons, anchored by a complete version of the show's usually truncated theme. Though it shares similarities with Michael Giacchino's work on Alias, Callery's work here is consistently darker, an electro-organic fusion that spans tense, brooding orchestral passages and thrashing dollops of metallic-edged techno. Yet the composer also delivers moments of melodic, almost mournful solitude, while the third season's story line inspires some evocative Latin influences as well. Callery's background in sound effects editing contributes much to the rich sonic textures here, yielding a pioneering approach that portends a bright future for the composer. --Jerry McCulley

Product Description

Jack Bauer, an agent of CTU (Counter Terrorism Unit), is having another one of his 'very bad days.' Such a simple idea - yet so fiendishly complex in execution. 24, as surely everyone knows by now, is a thriller that takes place over 24 hours, in 24 one-hour episodes. Everything takes place in real time. The show is an enormous, award-winning success - including its Emmy Award-winning theme. Sean Callery's score is both powerful & brooding. Fans of the show have been calling for a soundtrack release since the first season. Finally, in time for holiday sales, released along with the THIRD SEASON DVD & in advance of the much-anticipated premiere of SEASON FOUR this January, comes the blockbuster soundtrack from 24!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost as addictive as the show January 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The soundtrack promo came up in last week's (Season 4) episode, and I could not stop grinning. I'm neurochemically hooked on the show, and I've always wanted the closing credits music on CD. The expanded "24" theme gives you the feel of the whole show - hope (strings/synth), tension (percussion), duty (military snare/high horns), and sacrifice (piano/low horns).

Sean Callery's approach has a lot in common with Graeme Revell's score for "The Negotiator" and Mark Snow's TV scores ("The X-Files", "Millennium"). The choice of tracks couldn't be better. There are no musical reminders of lesser moments in the show like "Jack on Smack" or "Yep, Kim's in The Cougar Trap".

"Up and Down Stairs" has enough guitar and groove to fill a dance floor. "Kim and Terry's Escape from The Safe House" sounds like a guest shot from Juno Reactor, with a frantic drum n' bass rhythm and Middle Eastern chanting. "Alexis" is just plain sexy, and a good fit for fans of electro-goth band Collide.

Tracks like "'Copter Chase over L.A." and "Coliseum Finale" are all business, with quasi-military music riding a tick-tock beat.
"Season One Finale/Terry's Death" conveys the show as effectively as the main theme. There's a whole bunch of drama, then it sounds like things will be OK...then, the sickening twist.

You've gotta watch the show, and you've gotta have the music underneath it. Like any good TV music, Callery's soundtrack merits casual listening when the TV's off.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome January 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
i'd been hoping and praying and griping in forums ever since season 1 for a 24 tv soundtrack to be released, so imagine my surprise when i stumbled across a discussion about the 24 tv soundtrack the other day. i'm an OST and 24 junkie, so i'm pretty biased in giving this album 5 stars, but trust me, it's a very top-notch production [didn't callery win an award for best tv score?]. anyways, my only disappointment with the soundtrack is that i was hoping they'd include the music that was playing [during season 3] when chase and the strike team are Metal-Gear-Solid-ing into the apt where saunders is supposedly hiding out in, in order to take him down before jack must kill chappelle... but all the tracks present are so good it pretty much makes up for that =)

5.0 out of 5 stars Tribute to a great Show January 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The CD arrived just the otherday and I'm glad to have it. For those who like techno music, this ones for you. It reminds me of the days back in the '80's when Jan Hammer(Miami Vice fame) was the hot item. The "24" theme song is a strong rendition of what this show is all about. Yet, the others listed are of the shows plot renditions, it is strong, lively and to the point. You can close you eyes and combine the works of Pink Floyd, Tomita, Jan Hammer, and other great synthesiser musicians and find out that Sean Callery is a promising upcoming star. Some of the works are short, somewhat sad since they do have a lot of promise. But Callery brings to life the sole of this fast paced show with clear and crisp fast moving music. Yet he does know how to work the feelings of Jack Bauer when his interludes in the scenes involving Jack's wife and daughter, a real soft moving pieces that show the softer side of our beloved hero. All in all its pretty good music to just listen and get the juices flowing. Lets get some of the previous season out also. Hope they consider a follow-up or let Callery do some freelancing.

5.0 out of 5 stars This soundtrack is the bomb! December 10, 2004
By John G.
Format:Audio CD
I am a longtime viewer of "24", have all the seasons on DVDs, and I love this soundtrack!! Sean Callery does fully receive the credit for being one of the greatest composers. You might remember Sean Callery did the music from "Le Femme Nikita" (although I have never seen this show, I still love his music). Some of my favorite tracks from this soundtrack include the "24 theme", "Up and down stairs", "Jack in the Limo", "The Bomb Detonates", "Alexis", and many more!! I definitely recommend this soundtrack to any fans of the show "24." Finally, Callery if you are listening, make a volume two, please!!

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll be listening to "24" for more than 24 May 29, 2006
Format:Audio CD
It is a rarity for a television show to be scored well, let alone have a hugely original one (what was different scorewise between "Family Matters" and "Full House"?). Sure, most people probably aren't paying attention to the score while watching, say, "According to Jim," but some do, at least in part. As a student filmmaker, I can't HELP but pay attention to such things, well, 24/7.

What makes Sean Callery's score so amazing is that it functions just like a score for film would. It easily evokes a large range of emotions and moods from the viewer all while maintaining a uniform style and using definitive themes. I particularly liked that for such an energetic show, there could still be somber, subtle piano tracks that were even remeniscent of the work of Thomas Newman (but were still completely original).

If you are a huge fan of the show itself like I am and you also enjoy instrumental film soundtracks, or if you happen to like kinetic dance music (the tracks "Up and Down Stairs" and "Coliseum Finale" will do you well), this CD is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Soundtrack to a Great Show February 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Sean Callery's score to the TV show "24" fits perfectly. Some reviewers have complained of the pieces here that are moody, but I find the CD strikes a nice balance between the intense parts and the moody ones. Another nice touch was to wait until Season Three before releasing this music. There seems to be a rush on most TV soundtracks to get some product out there as soon as possible, and it normally ends up inferior. Great TV show, great soundtrack!
