Hmmm, not sure if I completely agree with the review, specifically where it diminishes the compositions from the First Season. Arguably, three of the most important themes are established in the First Season. There is the dissonant, tribal "Prologue" theme. There is the family/comrade/martial/heroic theme of "Wander My Friends", and most importantly the beautiful baroque/classical composition of "Passacaglia", and its many permutations/variations, which include "Shape of Things to Come" (which plays over one of the most beautiful directed scenes in Kobol's Last Gleaming part 2) , and in later seasons, "Allegro" and "Violence and Variations".
In fact, I would go so far to say that "Passacaglia"/"Shape of Things to Come" is the singularly defining and most important motif/melody for the entire Series, IMHO.
