Excellent Score - B5 Fan or Not
Douglas K. Umland | San Jose, CA United States | 12/01/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is excellent atmosphere. It is very moving and relaxing. When juxtaposed to the climactic ending of the series, it makes the hair stand on the back of your neck.

The marketplace seller holding a $109 price tag over a used copy is either an over zealous fan or... you make the call. This, and all available B5 soundtracks, can be ordered from Christopher Franke's Entertainment company Sonic Images Entertainment, Inc. for $11.56 including shipping at [...]. Here the creator get's his compensation.

If Amazon actually stocked this item, I wouldn't be here saying this. I want people to enjoy this wonderful album, just don't over pay some huckster and leave Franke hangin'."

"I won't say that this an album for everyone, but for B5 fans it's essential. Franke's music ties with the series in such a way that the truly dedicated can relive the show through the music and this, Sheridan's final hour is something worth reliving. Franke's soundtrack takes us back and it is as if it's happening all over again. That was probably redundant, but any B5 fan needs this album."
Best of the Best

"This is the most fitting music for an episode I've ever heard. The musical style, while dramatically differant from the series itself, is very in tune with what has come to be expected from Christopher Franke. The new cues were first introduced in Objects at Rest, the episode right before this, and were used to great effect.Each time there is a build up, you just know *that* is the best he can do, and he tops it - every time. How much better can this music get?Often times, when I listen to a soundtrack to television or movie, there is almost no sense of the show. When I listen to a soundtrack from the original star trek series, for example (and I am a long-time Trek fan) unless I look at the title, I have no idea what episode I'm listening to; there is nothing differant. There is nothing to tie this music to the series .... While in Sleeping in Light (and *ALL* Babylon 5 for that matter) there is a direct link between the music and what is happening on screen.When I listen to the music, I can *SEE* what is happening in the back of my mind ... and at the end, with the final buildup in track 5 leading to the destruction of the station - words cannot describe the feel of chills going up my spine, of ripping my heart out and leaving a feeling of loss, yet of hope for the future. If Franke has not yet won an award for this cd, he deserves demonstrates the reasons he deserves to."
