Descripción del producto
Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko unveiled The Legend of Korra, a sequel series to the animated show Avatar: The Last Airbender, in 2012. This set features selected tracks from Jeremy Zuckerman's score for the new series, which includes a fascinating mix of instruments, including paigu drums, seven-string zithers, and a Mongolian stringed instrument called the matouqin, among other exotic musical touches, all of which makes this a fascinating listen, even without the story line.

Perhaps that is why the release of ancillary media surrounding it, like the Legend of Korra Book 1 score, has taken this long to be released. But thankfully, now we have it.
Regardless, the music itself is worthy of any quality, big-budget fantasy epic put to film, let alone something made for television. One could easily be forgiven for mistaking it as a film score, because aside from commercial breaks, that's pretty much how it plays out. The music from the original Airbender show was, despite some cues that reflected the more child-like humor which paired with the narrative tone, always more mature than your standard kids' fare, which is how it garnered fans amongst other age groups as well.
With "Legend of Korra", that maturity is elevated to an even more prominent role. There's less of a reliance on synthesized instrumentation this time around, in what feels like a larger orchestral presence. Again, this is appropriate as the story itself has matured in dealing with darker elements.
This music is a pleasure to listen to with or without the accompanying visuals, and doubtless holds much replay value.
Altogether highly recommended.

Also, it would've been nice to have a second disc. Too many of my favourite tracks didn't make the cut.
The soundtrack is sometimes a little jazzy, perfect for the slightly more modern feel of this sequel series. "Hittin' on All Sixes" is my favorite of these more upbeat numbers. It feels bright and energetic! "Squeaky Rags" is also good, too -- it's very brassy and jaunty.
But there are also plenty of softer songs. "Before" is an especially good example of one of the softer songs -- a little sad and at times, haunting. You can really hear some of the Asian influences in this particular track. It reminds me a bit of music used in traditional Japanese Kabuki theater.
"Amon" and "Chi Blockers" are both especially intense. They sound full of darkness and anger, which of course, makes them work perfectly as the main villainous themes.
Overall, the soundtrack is a fascinating mix of genres, and a definite must-listen for any Avatar or Legend of Korra fan. It really brings you back into the show and reminds you of all the wonderful moments the series had to offer.
It's pretty much what I expected and a bit more, too. The blend of eastern and western flavored music that first exploded in the animated series is here, and it's what we, the fans wanted. The only complaints I have are similar to others: It's short, and leaves me hungry for more, even though I'm listening to the soundtrack repeatedly. Don't take the "it's too short" complaint too seriously, though. It's a good compilation of the music from Book 1 of Legend of Korra. There's also a track I had expected there, but wasn't (it's unofficially called "The Rally" by fans). It's too bad the soundtrack is just too good, because I don't actually mind that this track isn't there.
Thank you to Zuckerman, the creators of Legend of Korra. And thank you to Nickelodeon for finally listening to the fans. Because many of us actually wanted to buy the soundtrack.
