The Right Stuff
Season 1
Soundtrack From the Disney+ Original Series


Composer: Adam Taylor
Label: WaterTower Music
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 20 November 2020

WaterTower Music release The Right Stuff: Season 1 (Soundtrack from the Disney+ Original Series), which features composer Adam Taylor’s (The Handmaid’s Tale, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) original music. The Right Stuff is an inspirational look at the early days of the U.S. Space Program and the incredible story of the Mercury Seven, America’s first astronauts. At the height of the Cold War, newly-formed NASA selects seven of the military’s best test pilots to become astronauts. Competing to be the first in space, these men achieve the extraordinary, inspiring the world to turn towards a new horizon of ambition and hope...

Adam Taylor hits the sweet spot with his score for The Right Stuff. Not too cheesy and patriotic and not too epic and sweeping in nature, this score has a core that is seeped in mystery, intrigue and wonder. It's subtle in places, and all embracing in others.

Pieces like 'Good Day For a Launch' adds suspense and wonder to the onscreen action. This is a score that can stands on its own merits as well as providing the emotional heart of the show.

You can dip in and out of this score just as easily as listening from start to finish, as every track has something of interest - something very rare these days.

Overall, a good mix of epic and melancholic music. This is a score I thoroughly recommend.
