Presenting the original music score to the hit TNT television series Leverage, starring Timothy Hutton. Emmy winning composer Joseph LoDuca (Legend Of The Seeker, The Librarian, Xena, Evil Dead Trilogy) creates a wonderful listening experience with a jazz and pop-tinged music score that captures all the mystery, action and flat-out fun of this popular TV series. Currently airing on TNT in its second season, the first season of Leverage is available on DVD in stores everywhere. Second season hits DVD in 2010.

It's very easy to label the score as "con" music. You know, very cool and suave. It certainly has the urban city feel and creates that atmosphere. LoDuca successfully changes things up to keep interest by adding different flavors. We have an Irish themed punk song as well as an Indian flavored track. There are some more emotionally driven tracks as well that ground the score a bit.
In the end the immense amount of music included here from the series may seem a bit overwhelming for a standalone experience. They really pack the CD nearing in at 73 minutes of music. I can't say it's something I can listen to anytime mostly because the music does only play on the surface. Again, this is looking at it from a standalone experience. In the show it performs its job successfully. LoDuca is able to create a light and fun atmosphere that walks the walk and talks the talk, but it fails to leave a lasting impression.
I'd also like to note: since the CD was released a few years ago, it only has music from the first couple seasons. Maybe someday they'll release another that catches the last half of the show's run? I'd love to get my hands on that "Two Good Ol' Boys" song from season 5.
I enjoy it because it is already familiar to me (from watching the show) and I can plug away at work projects and listen to fun background music while staying focused on my work. Adding a little soundtrack to your everyday work tasks makes them more interesting!
LoDuca captured the feel of Leverage and added to the well written script and great characters. Simplicity works here and it did its job well in the series. Music is an integral part of any cinematic endeavor (TV or movie). What would your favorite show be with different music, or no music at all? If you are a Leverage fan and enjoy scores, you will enjoy this.
