The 100 season 5 finale has left us all in tears and with fair reason. Monty and Harper received a happily ever after that many of us hope for but rarely get. Shannon Kook made his first appearance as Jordan Green, the sweet son of Monty and Harper, and Madi led Wonkru into peace. All of these wonderful pieces will lead us into season six, which will air in 2019. Although the wait is long and will be harboring, the season 5 soundtrack, released today, will hopefully make the wait easier.
The 100 season 5 soundtrack composed by Tree Adams and labeled under WaterTower Music, offers an emotional and tranquil journey, that will center fans right in Clarke’s and Bellamy’s world. Each track will signify a certain moment from each episode.
Tree Adams described his musical ambiance in a press release from WaterTower Music:
“Jason Rothenberg’s vision for Season 5 was once again dark and epic in scope, presenting many exciting challenges from the compositional perspective,” said Adams in a press release. “The genre of science fiction often inherently allows a composer a great deal of creative latitude. This has certainly been the case for me with The 100. It has been a wonderful challenge, a joy, and an honor to inhabit this world and to accompany this tale with music.”
The 100 is rather a pivotal dark series with a group of people all struggling to survive in a post-apocalyptic setting. Surrounded by ensuing death and violence, there is no “correct” way to try to get out. Everyone (and I do mean EVERYONE) make unfathomable choices with harsh coincidences.
In the same release, creator Jason Rothenberg shares his take on the music portion of The 100:
“The music [Tree] composes builds worlds and elevates every scene, creating the perfect atmosphere and tension,” says series executive producer Jason Rothenberg. “The guy is a musical storyteller, who elevates and helps define what The 100 is.”
If you want to sample a taste of the soundtrack, I have included two exclusive tracks for your contentment.

Monty’s Found A New Planet from The 100 season 5 Original Soundtrack
The songs given connects all three of the characters in a holy trinity-as I believed they are the ones (Bellamy, Clarke, and Monty) have gone through the most changes in season 5. Yet, they remained vital to their cause and together, they managed to save lives once again. While Monty gave his life to finding a new home, Bellamy and Clarke will have to work together to complete Monty’s hopes. It will be, no doubt, a tangled excursion, but with the others on their side, they all should live up to Monty’s dream.
