The second season of Battlestar Galactica has now wrapped up. While we wait for season three, coming in October, I’ve got three copies of the CD soundtrack from the show’s second batch of episodes to give away, courtesy of La-La Land Records. Here’s the scoop on the soundtrack, from La-La Land:

Considered one of the top 10 shows currently on TV by Time Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, and TV Guide, Battlestar Galactica is the #1 show on the Sci Fi Channel. On June 20, La-La Land Records will release the Battlestar Galactica: Season Two soundtrack, featuring more than 78 minutes of the best musical moments from the 2nd season of the Sci-Fi Channel’s critically acclaimed, top-rated television series starring Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, James Callis, Tricia Helfer and Katee Sackhoff.

Composer Bear McCreary builds on his impressive Season One accomplishments and once again delivers a sensational, emotionally rich score that ingeniously melds orchestra, vocals, percussion and synthesizer. The Season Two CD contains few tracks which are longer in length. Says McCreary, “The first one was a soundtrack. The second one is an album.”

The Battlestar Galactica: Season Two soundtrack features performances by Supernova String Quartet (on “A Promise to Return” from The Farm), vocals by Raya Yarbrough (on “Lords of Kobol” from Pegasus), and vocals by Bt4 (on “The Cylon Prisoner” from Pegasus). Former Oingo-Boingo members Steve Bartek, John Avila and Johnny “Vatos” Hernandez play on the track from “Black Market”. And the main title theme from Battlestar Galactica, composed by Richard Gibbs, is also on the soundtrack.

Fans of the original series will be excited to see that the theme from the original Battlestar Galactica series, composed by Stu Phillips, has been adapted and arranged by McCreary. The homage to the television show that inspired this new incarnation leads off the soundtrack.

If you don’t want to wait to win, buy the CD at Amazon.
