Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Its muscular aura of international intrigue informed by smart characters, sharp writing, and a sleek cinematic sense, the episodes of the hit Alias often seem more like a chapters of a successful movie spy franchise than mere network television series. Key to achieving that masterful illusion is young composer Michael Giacchino, whose soundtracks range across a dizzying range of musical styles and dramatic undercurrents. This anthology of cues from the show's first season incorporates shrewd, techno-savvy club beats, sweeping orchestral sequences of pounding action, brooding suspense worthy of Bond, and inventive indigenous music of indeterminate nationality. Firmly grounded in rich Hollywood traditions, yet hip enough to keep an ear cocked to pulsing, contemporary styles, Giacchino's TV scores often outshine those of the pricier, big budget Hollywood boilerplate he's competing with. --Jerry McCulley

Format: Audio CD
The music on this CD is the original music produced by Michael Giacchino that can be heard on the ALIAS TV show. It is not the other songs featured on the show that are by other artists. So, in essence, it's the score for the show, not the soundtrack (which is a good thing).
The show itself being a cross of science fiction and a 007 style movie, the music follows suit. It's an excellent cross of Don Davis's (Matrix) techno style and David Arnold's (The World is Not Enough, Tomorrown Never Dies, Die Anohter Day) spy music styling. If you want samples, watch the show (ABC at 9), or go to Michael Giacchino's web site at [...]
Some of the samples featured on that site appear in long form on the CD, which has 25 tracks on it, all from the first season.
The track list is:
1. Main Title (Alias Theme, TV cut)
2. Dissolved
3. Red Hair Is Better
4. Spanish Heist
5. Double Life
6. Tunisia
7. In the Garden
8. Looking For A Man
9. Anna Shows Up
10. Home Movies
11. On To Paris
12. Page 47
13. The Prophecy
14. Badenweiler
15. Arvin At The Poles

23. Ball Buster
24. The End?

The "Alias" soundtrack is as hot as the show itself! Sleek tracks filled with rumbling bass, techno sound effects, and a driving beat make this one of the best albums around. While it doesn't contain any of the popular music Alias is known for, the score alone is worth the price. Energetic, exciting music just as great as the show!

If Henry Mancini and Ferry Corsten collaborated on a TV soundtrack for a spy drama set in the 21st Century, the results couldn't be any better than Michael Giacchino's work on this CD. Giacchino can compose for an orchestra like the best of them, but he's also savvy enough to add a contemporary edge with multiple nods to electronica. Synth pads and drum loops are phased through various low-pass and comb filters on several selections here, resulting in a delicious, chewy-sounding percussive effect. Other reviewers have commented on this being a great exercise CD; I agree and would also add that this is a great CD for driving or browsing through glossy photo magazines.

My favorite pieces on the CD are "SD-6 Dance Party," "Red Hair is Better," and "Spanish Heist." I've no idea who the guitarist is on the latter two cuts, but he's quite good!

I recommend this first and foremost to anyone who fears that soundtracks are a dead medium; Giacchino's a challenging composer and takes some real risks. Alias fans will snatch this up (although it doesn't include any soundbites from the TV series), as will anyone willing to play both techno and retro lounge on their CD players. Completists may not be happy with this CD as none of the popular music heard in the show is reproduced here, nor is the torch song Jennifer Garner sang in one episode. But that's what future installments of Alias soundtrack CDs are for!

When I first started watching this amazing show, the first thing I noticed was how incredible the soundtrack was. Each episode had a unique theme to it, and it's not that boring drama music you hear in movies and some tv shows. This is upbeat, electronic-like music that everyone will enjoy! There is that really haunting song "in the garden" which is from when Sydney Bristow was locked in a Romanian Psych Asylum! It's great! "Red Hair Is Better" and "Badenweiler" are among the best tracks, besides the theme song!
The tracks seem to be taken from the first season, which is great, since the score was incredible. This CD is not some boring instrumental album....this is like a dance CD with the occasional ballad. If you like Alias, you NEED to get this CD! It is so rare for a tv show to have such good background music!

A no brainer. I love Alias and have every episode on DVD. Such good stories, rich characters and yes, great music. Michael Giacchino just "locked in" to the show and J.J. let him have at it. Thank goodness. If you are an Alias fan you really will recognize the themes and the emotional link the music made with the stories told on the show. The recording quality is typically excellent Varese Sarabande. Track 3, "Red Hair is Better" is a demo track for your system.

I think the title says it all, but it's true. I bought this CD knowing and loving the show and realizing just what the music adds to all of the highly enjoyable adrenaline rush scenes. This CD does not disappoint. I now exercise/kick box to it and if your pumped up by just watching the series, you'll really enjoy playing this CD in your car while driving....just try not to get a speeding ticket because the impulse to floor it will definately be there!!

First of all, I am an avid Alias Fan. I'd watch every episode and try to find the songs played during it- eventually realizing that these are not for sale- they are the score. Michael Giacchino is a genius and I'm so grateful to finally own the score to season 1. If you like the sound of the show, the mix of techno and classical, you'll have fun with this album- it's great to drive to (well, not for the other drivers) and awesome to work out to. Easily worth the 14 bucks.

Now, where's Season 2's score????
