I am going to be honest besides the main theme the music in this show is not very good and I imagine I am not the only one who thinks this way.

I largely agree. I did enjoy a few of the songs, but others not so much. Especially the songs that kept getting repeated. But the main theme at least, and the background score, is pretty good.

See here for all the LBT films and episodes I've reviewed.

The background score for me is very meh. My biggest problem with the background music is that it all sounds the same to me. Also when there's a peaceful scene the score is way too dramatic for me. Why couldn't they hire Michael Tavera to do the score for the series?
I love the Yellow Bellies.

Also the fact that they re-used instrumentals from songs in the movies for most of the songs in this series is very lazy.
I love the Yellow Bellies.

Can't agree more. Even simple usual background music did always cut my ears in the most of moments. :/
And since I always didn't like songs in LBT movies (as well as in other cartoons - I just don't like unnecessary singings!!!) very much, the fact that there's 2 songs in each single 20-minute episodes... It was almost torture for me.

I couldn’t agree more with this. Even as a child, I thought everything but the theme song from the series was so grating. The creators obviously didn’t think the target audience would know any better as long as there was some kind of music involved, but boy were they wrong. My brother and I like to laugh over how the annoying songs from this show don’t even RHYME half the time. ::) I mean, why waste space on lousy singing when a TV episode is already short as it is...Oh, I forgot, filler...Never mind.  :p

Reusing songs with different lyrics is a huge problem with the TV series.  :facepalm It is basically the easy way out of not having to write new songs. I think there are at least two unique songs in the series that weren't in the movies yet repeated in the series. Like "Remembering" which I remember being sung by Ruby and Grandpa Longneck, and I think it's done well by both singers.

Also the remix of "Beyond the Mysterious Beyond" when the dinos were congratulating Cera for "scaring away" the gators makes for a good congratulatory tune.  :cerasmug
