ABC’s fractured fairy tale show couldn’t have asked for a better composer than Mark Isham to tread between fantasy land and the “real world” of Storybrooke. Now with ONCE UPON A TIME’s yarns looking like they’ll be flipping for a while on Rumplestiltskin’s wheel, Intrada compiles the best of Isham’s episodic enchantments for an album the show’s fans will appreciate, as well as those appreciative of his cinematic stories.

And therein lies TIME‘s best spell at fully bringing together those two worlds with Isham’s lush, yet melodically delicate sound. For while he might not have scored this kind of live action fantasy on the big screen (though he did collide the toon world and Vegas for his terrific score to COOL WORLD), Isham has had plenty of experience in verdant, family friendly lands from NELL to A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT and FLY AWAY HOME.

ONCE UPON A TIME luxuriates in this kind of rhythmically bucolic sound, with rich strings, sparkling bell percussion, dulcimers and ethereal voices expertly creating a children’s book section worth of iconic characters, and making them emotionally adult in the bargain. For whether he’s play black-hearted evil or gossamer goodness, Mark Isham never quite tips the balance into seriously drama or outright fantasy scoring, a wise choice that makes his enticing work for ONCE UPON A TIME its own, enticing musical wonderland.
