Much has been made, and rightly so, of the songs by the likes of Vibrolux, Depeche Mode, Hednoize and Sara MacLachlan (to name but a few) that were incorporated into LFN episodes. (Some are featured on the LFN soundtrack.) But one should not overlook the tremendous contribution of composer Sean Callery, who did all of the original scoring for the series. Fortunately for LFN fans, Mr. Callery took it upon himself to produce a CD featuring highlights of his music from all five seasons. This Limited Edition CD was made available at the Close Quarters Standby 4 convention in Florida in 2001. With only 1,000 made, it has become an instant collectible.
