La-La Land Records releases Blake Neely's score for Arrow: Season 2. After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific.  He returned home to Starling City, welcomed by his devoted mother Moira, beloved sister Thea and former flame Laurel Lance. With the aid of his trusted chauffeur/bodyguard John Diggle, the computer-hacking skills of Felicity Smoak and the occasional, reluctant assistance of former police detective, now police captain, Quentin Lance, Oliver has been waging a one-man war on crime...

Blake Neely's score for the second season of Arrow is bursting with impressive themes. You certainly get your monies worth, as the album contains 29 tracks (1 hr, 17 min, 54 sec).

Neely balances the line between modern, gothic and your standard action score. Not an easy mix to get right. In fact, there's such a diverse mix of music here, that this feels more like a show reel of themes to show how adaptable Neely's writing is.

Tracks like 'Love Is the Most Powerful Emotion' showcase Neely's romantic side; while 'Tunnel Fight' illustrate that he's just as at home scoring adrenaline pumping action themes. And 'The Man Under the Hood' sees him tackle the gothic superhero themes - hitting the nail on the head.

The album is peppered with memorable tracks. If you're an Arrow fan you'll already have snapped this up. For soundtrack collectors... it's certainly one to go on the list.
