Intrada is proud to announce the release of Mark Isham's score to the hit ABC TV series Once Upon a Time that premiered last fall. Isham needed to come up with a score that spanned the entire spectrum of emotions -- not only breathing life into quieter moments, but also being romantic, sweeping, and epic. The result was a score for the series that is both beautiful and heartfelt and has become integral to the fabric of the show. For this release representing music from various episodes, Mark Isham has compiled over an hour of music carefully produced to provide listeners with a musical journey that captures the essence of the show. This release also features five different collectible covers, but the contents of all discs remain the same. The show focuses on Emma Swan, whose life has been anything but a fairytale. A 28-year-old bail bondsperson, she s been taking care of herself since she was abandoned as a baby. But when Henry the son she gave up 10 years ago finds her, everything changes. Henry is desperate for his mom s help and thinks that Emma is actually the long, lost daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming. Even stranger, Henry believes that Storybrooke, the sleepy New England town he calls home, is really part of a curse cast by the Evil Queen, freezing fairytale characters in the modern world with no memory of their former selves. Of course the seen-it-all Emma doesn t believe a word, but when she gets to Storybrooke, she can t help sensing that everything s not quite what it seems...

My only quirk is that you don't really know what album artwork you're going to get. I got Snow White for the cover, and I was pleased. Had Charming been the cover, I would have rolled my eyes at it. Just not a fan of David, don't know why exactly. But that's just a quirk, not enough of a problem to justify a drop in rating, just worth noting for those of you expecting an album with Regina as the cover. The insert does include all main characters, but without the text.
Stand out tracks:
The four songs previously released on iTunes- 1)The Orchestral Suite, 3)The Queen's Curse, 6)Belle's Story, and 9)Things are changing in Storybrooke (all of which are great, especially the first track).
Other awesome songs are 8)The Huntsman, 14)Unhappy Endings, 16)The Siren, 18)Hope Will Return, 19)Rumplestiltskin In Love, and 21)The Road to True Love.
My favorite track is the haunting, devastating Rumplestiltskin in Love (featured in the "Skin Deep" episode, when Rumple is breaking his castle and Mr. Gold is beating the flower guy).
From the first moment I actually heard the notes and found the theme within the score, I told my friend that I wanted the music on CD. That was before it was released. Now I am glad I have bought it.
Simply because whenever there is a silence in my life, I take this CD, put it in either my laptop or CD player and the atmosphere of the series is brought to my room without watching it. Maybe it is an escape from reality for me. Nevertheless I fancy it and I reckon if you love the show and like the music you should buy it because the music as such is beautiful.
