GIVEAWAY and Review: NCIS: Los Angeles Soundtrack


Even though my DVR is not set to record NCIS: Los Angeles (with young kids with a bedtime routine, all our shows are recorded on the DVR to watch later) I was very interested to review this soundtrack becausse I recognized most of the artists on the soundtrack, and if I didn't recognize them my husband did. Given that my husband and I have different music interests, this is a great soundtrack to listen to in the car together.

Even though I couldn't picture specific scenes or the opening/closing credits, which are often accompanied by music I was able to picture what type of scenes the music would accompany. Did you ever stop to think how much music adds to a show? Try watching a show that uses a lot of music with the mute on or try to tune out the music and you will see how much you are missing. Music can set the tone and invoke emotions that you cannot get from just listening to the words or watching the actions. Music can add depth and additional meaning and helps tell the story. Creator and Executive Producer Shane Brennan adds, “Great storytelling is not just about what is seen on the screen, but what is heard as well.  Whether a car chase, undercover operation, or watching our characters banter in the bullpen, music is an integral part of each episode of NCIS: LOS ANGELES. We are lucky to work with some of the most talented and creative artists on a weekly basis, and we’re excited to share some of this music with the fans on our first soundtrack.

I watch both NCIS and NCIS: LA - I get caught up in watching the all day marathons too! The plots are great but I also love the actors in both shows. The music is great too and the way they do a quick photo shot before to show you a quick glimpse of what is coming always keeps my attention going strong!

I don't watch NCIS because I got rid of cable tv since Comcast is horrible to micro manage. They cannot generate a simple consistent bill every month. Since I heard Dish is just as bad, I only watch tv from the internet. I saw this show at a friends - wish I could watch it more consistently.
