Is there any news on Volume 2?

More then likely, it will either come out sometime around the start of the next season, later the year.

Just a wild guess on my part.

Hm I'm not sure that makes sense. Next season will start next year, Vol. 2 was supposed to be the music from the second half of the first season (or at least that's what most of us thought). I would think the score for the second season would come out next year with season 2. I'm waiting for Bear to post some news on his blog. Just finished the first season today. Got hooked.

Well, it will go out, but I suspect you'll see it perhaps later this year.

The First album by all accounts is dong quite well, so there isn't a rush to get the second one out.

Despite some soapy and 'women's lit' elements, I found myself watching this series from start to finish.

McCreary's music is very good, and the album is probably the best-presented album I've heard from him (he tends to go the C&C route, but thankfully opted for something more listener-friendly this time).

But I just played Jeff Rona's WHITE SQUALL, and heard the track "The Skye Boat Song" (trad.). Lo and behold, it was the same melody as the OUTLANDER theme! I'm sure it's credited properly in the series and everything, but for some reason I had always thought this to be an original McCreary composition. I feel like an idiot! smile

What? Since when has he gone C&C? Even if he wanted to, since he's scored series television almost exclusively, it wouldn't be possible. But even for his releases of the "Caprica" and "Blood & Chrome" TV movies, he didn't include everything. (The "Caprica" pilot score runs an hour and ten minutes, of which 54 minutes are on the album.) Plus, quite often, he creates "album versions" of cues, sometimes combining related cues from different episodes, to favor the listening experience.

I've never seen "Europa Report," so maybe that album is C&C. But even if so, that hardly makes a tendency.

OK, maybe not entirely C&C, but they're often WAY too long and eventually wear out their welcome (the DA VINCI'S DEMONS albums are a great example -- fine music, lousy presentation). OUTLANDER was a refreshing change of pace.

Oh! Well, that's a different thing.

Europa Report is not C&C. I don't know if it is missing anything, but the score is presented in an order optimized for listening, rather than what appears in the film.

Bear just shared this on Facebook. New CD coming in September and a listen to an expanded arrangement of the Skye Boat Song which is fantastic:

The extended track is absolutely sublime! smile

I'm so happy that there's more music this time around.
