Assassin’s Creed III soundtrack by Lorne Balfe (album review)

The ‘Assassin’s Creed’ world has changed. It’s 1775 and the colonies are about to revolt and Connor, a young assassin born of two worlds, is now the focus of the series. That’s not all that’s changed, after working with the series’ previous soundtrack composer, Jesper Kyd, on the second ‘Assassin’s Creed’ game, Lorne Balfe takes […]

Sleepers In The Dust by Darren Jones (CD review).

For a change, here’s a story that fits into an hour and is full of problems and pain without a simple ending. ‘Sleepers In The Dust’ is an Eleventh Doctor story that feels so much better than most of the series this year. The travellers arrive on Nardurniss, but this dead world is full of […]

Doctor Who: The Burning Prince by John Dorney (CD review).

With a suitably intriguing title, ‘The Burning Prince’ is the latest audio adventure for a solo travelling Fifth Doctor written by John Dorney, so expect extreme trickiness. It’s an odd experience to hear him alone as the Doctor always seems to be tripping over his many companions. His recent audios have been successful precisely because […]

Dalek Invasion Earth Boxed Set by Terrance Dicks and Malcolm Hulke (CD review).

This ‘Dalek Invasion Earth Boxed Set’ covers three different invasions of Earth with two different Doctors. It seems a shame nobody invaded while the Second Doctor was in charge but it looks like this was a scoop up of stories for a boxed set which doesn’t exactly show a great deal of thought. However, it’s […]

Film Noir’s Finest: Themes From The Dark Side Of The Lens (album review)

Noir, black as the night , this film genre often conjures up images of trenchcoats, dames and mob bosses with amusing nicknames that bely their power such as ‘Nicky the Nose’ or ‘Johnny Tightlips’. As well as a distinct image, they also have a specific sound: sultry, moody music that conveys danger and sex all […]

Hobbit movie score.

Here’s a segment from the soundtrack of the upcoming Hobbit film. Via the musical talents of Howard Shore, this piece is themed on the naturalistic woodland wizard Radagast the Brown. In the original Tolkien book, Radagast got something like a one-line mention. In the movies he’s been fleshed out into something a lot more substantial. […]

Just like a chap?

The chap-hop revolution continues unabated with Mr. B’s recent new song – Just like a chap. He has to eject a certain pith-helmeted steampunk rapper who invades the set of the video, though. Very good sir, very good.
