The soundtrack to Pacific Blue is comprised entirely of music written and performed by Christopher Franke, who attempts to approximate the show's extreme Southern California mentality by layering the album with heavy rock, surf tunes and soothing instrumentals. For anyone who's a fan of the show, the results are familiar and entertaining, but for listeners unfamiliar with Pacific Blue, the soundtrack will be sporadically entertaining. Nevertheless, Franke's instrumental facility and his capablity to emulate a number of styles makes the record an impressive effort.
