The X-Files Volume Two music composed by Mark Snow (CD review).

For those who remembered my review of ‘The X-Files Volume One’ music and how much I thought it was long over-due and wondered if they did a second volume would contain certain episodes. Wonder no more, because here’s Volum Two. Reading the forty page booklet, the first episode here was ‘Eve’ which automatically raised a […]

The Mechanic Limited Edition: music composed and conducted by Jerry Fielding (CD review).

This is the musical score to the original 1972 film ‘The Mechanic’, just in case any of you out there think the recent Jason Stratham film was the only one with that that title. It has nothing to do with car repairs! In the criminal underworld, a ‘mechanic’ is a professional hit man who stages […]

Music From The X-Files: A 20th Anniversary Celebration by John Beal, Joohyun Park, Dominik Hauser (album review).

Gosh, has it been 20 years already? Way back in 1993, a television show that changed how we view ongoing plot-lines and scripting debuted to so-so reviews. Nearly axed in its first season, it was kept alive by a core group of fans and went to air for nine seasons, spawn a spin-off, two feature […]

The Wolverine OST by Marco Beltrami (album review)

Patience is not something you’d associate with the permanently angry Wolverine but it’s certainly required to get through Marco Beltrami’s soundtrack. From the very first ‘X-Men’ film, it was quite obvious that Wolverine was the one to watch and after the critically-mauled origin story ‘Wolverine’, Hugh Jackman and co decide to give it another go […]

Doctor Who And The Leisure Hive by David Fisher (CD review).

Rejecting a rather disappointing Brighton which has caused K-9 to short circuit in the sea, the Doctor and Romana choose the Leisure Hive on Argolis for a mini-break. As K-9 has been successfully nobbled by the scriptwriters, we don’t have to worry about anyone shouting at him at regular intervals and having to pretend he […]
