Album Review

While fans of the hugely popular BBC adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic detective novels had to wait 18 months to get their hands on the original score for the first series, the official soundtrack to the second arrived just weeks after its intriguing finale pulled in a massive eight million viewers. Composed yet again by Michael Price (Band of Brothers) and David Arnold (James Bond), its 19 instrumentals pursue a similar minimal and suitably suspenseful classical sound as its BAFTA/Emmy-nominated predecessor, from the haunting violin solo of "Irene's Theme" (the opening track dedicated to the ruthless dominatrix who appeared in A Scandal in Belgravia), to the unsettling percussion and eerie sound effects of "Pursued by a Hound" (from a pivotal scene in The Hounds of Baskerville), to the unbearably intense orchestral crescendo of "Prepared to Do Anything" (the climactic number from the watercooler final episode, The Reichenbach Fall). Apart from the sweeping elegance of "Sherlocked," which could have wandered in from Downton Abbey, and the playful incorporation of the theme music on "Status Symbols," the sparse and restrained pieces are little more than incidental music which understandably fail to pack the same punch without any visuals. But it's still an appropriately dramatic and atmospheric affair which should appeal to those who want to immerse themselves even further in the modern-day mysteries of the great detective. ~ Jon O'Brien, Rovi

This is quite possibly the best TV soundtrack I've heard. A Scandal in Belgravia's music, like Moffat said, is absolutely heartbreaking. SHERlocked is my favourite track in the entire series.

Definitely buy. Buy the album.

Elementary, really!

The composers are innovative and amazing, and Sherlock and John come to life in every piece! I highly recommend... well, a lot of these! Five stars are given, only because I can't give more.


Best soundtrack to a TV show. The music is so stunningly melancholy and beautiful. I

Film composer David Arnold seems to have risen to prominence with unnerving swiftness, but this is in fact an illusion, as Arnold spent many years paying his dues by writing scores for English television and documentary film projects, many of them produced or directed by his lifelong friend Danny Cannon. In between times, Arnold tried out for the Clash and the Waterboys, but failed to get the gigs. Cannon made the move to feature directing with the 1993 film The Young Americans, tapping Arnold to...
