It is a daunting task to review a soundtrack done by a composer to whom I can never even dream to aspire. But to quote G.K. Chesterton, “Anything worth doing is worth doing badly.”
The Season One Soundtrack is “Composed and Produced by Mark Isham” and “Performed by The Hollywood Studio Symphony,” as written in the credits. The press release for it states:
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.
