The CD booklet features 20 pages of pictures and extensive liner notes, including 8 pages of notes from the cast and crew talking about the music and composer Bear McCreary, who Jamie Bamber (Lee ‘Apollo’ Adama) calls ‘the 13th Cylon” and Mary McDonnell (Laura Roslin) said “Bear understands character and plot and action as musical poetry and we were blessed to have him.”
Season 4 composer McCreary was recently called one of the top 10 composers “that make space adventures epic” by www.io9.com. His work on the television series Battlestar Galactica has been described as offering “some of the most innovative music on TV today,” by Variety, and his blog www.bearmccreary.com/blog, which features in-depth inside looks at the process of scoring Battlestar Galactica, was called "one of the best blogs in the business. It's a fascinating look at the process of making music for film and television and the care he takes with aligning the score with the twists and turns of each character's plot lines," by The Hollywood Reporter.
