The Champions Original Soundtrack by Robert Farnon, Edwin Astley, Albert Elms and Tony Hatch (TV series soundtrack CD review).

I’ve known about Network’s TV series CD collections for some years. They were also limited editions and expensive, double what I paid last month. Even so, when I saw ‘The Champions Original Soundtrack’ had dropped in price, it was too good an opportunity to miss. I should point out that not all the others in […]

Revolt (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) by Bear McCreary.

‘Revolt (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)’ by none other than Bear McCreary. This is the chap who impressed me with his work for the ‘Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D’ soundtrack and the rather darker ‘10 Cloverfield Lane’ soundtrack. For ‘Revolt’, we have 14 tracks providing 52 minutes of musical entertainment and only on download. Track 1 is […]

Doctor Who: Survival: music by Dominic Glyn (CD review).

It felt rather weird having a CD from the near beginning of ‘Doctor Who’ with the Daleks and then this one, ‘Doctor Who: Survival’ by Dominic Glyn from the end of the original run together, although the release date for each was weeks apart. You couldn’t get more of a contrast in how composers had […]

Doctor Who: The Daleks: music by Tristram Cary  (CD review)

‘Doctor Who: The Daleks’ is the original music in episode order from the second ‘Doctor Who’ story as composed by Tristram Cary. As such, much of these musical pieces are snippets between dialogue. Unlike modern day (am I actually calling today ‘modern’ 54 years later?), the music rarely if ever overlapped the talking. If you’re […]

American Gods (Original Television Series Soundtrack) by Brian Reitzell (CD review).

The HBO adaptation of ‘American Gods’, based on Neil Gaiman’s sprawling and epic novel about a world in which the old gods battle against the new gods within a world in which belief has turned to myth is a brave and ambitious show that betrays a myriad of influences. With a neon-tinged aesthetic, that harks […]

Out Of The Dark Room by Max Richter (CD review).

The work of German-born and British-bred minimalist composer Max Richter has always lent itself to the cinema. His debut album, the towering ‘Memoryhouse’, a landmark in modern classical music would find many of the tracks wending their way onto film trailers. Tracks such as ‘Sarajevo’ was matched to the trailer of ‘Prometheus’ while ‘November’ also […]

Annabelle: Creation: music by Benjamin Wallfisch (CD review).

All I’m really aware of about the horror film ‘Annabelle: Creation’ (2017) is it’s about a possessed doll out to do some damage to some orphaned girls. That’s all right, as I’m only here to listen to the soundtrack. Oddly, much of the early tracks are played low, no doubt to build up to the […]
