I finally got around to getting my paws on the BBC Sherlock OST. I was right in that they are absolutely amazing on their own merit. The mix of orchestra and the older period instruments and modern score tricks is what caught my ear originally. It really hasn’t changed my opinion in 2 years and two series. The stuff is frankly amazing in how it carries the story and doesn’t intrude. Which is pretty much all i ask of a score.

David Arnold and Michael Price are so commended for putting this together. The tiny bits of ambient tossed into the mixture of old and new also just MAKE it. It’s subtle, unless you catch it at the right time or have a trained ear like my crazy self. ^^;;

I have yet to really pin down a favorite, as i’m on my first listening of them. I will soon enough.

First impressions though? An incredible fusion of period victorian instrumentals and instruments with all the modern trappings to add to the sheer substance of the sound. The movements are layered and nuanced in ways worthy of oscar winning film scores. It’s just hard to beat things like this. Severely hard to beat them. Fusions always catch my ear cause they can be blatant or they can be subtle and devious. This is the latter.  It starts obvious and then draws you into the ambient parts without pause till you drool even harder.

It feeds into the growing relationship between John and Sherlock as they figure each other out in the first series, right up until that cliffhanger that had the fans howling across the world. This is exactly what a good score is supposed to do. Enhance the story without words. Then keeps you there in Series 2 and just adds even more to the shocks, horrors, and joys of it all. Series 3 is highly anticipated and i’m up for more than just John punching him in the face twice, crying and tackling him with joy. I want to hear the score that goes with it. :D


PS. The bint is in jail because she skipped out on her community service and didn't pay her fine. BHAHAHAHAH. Sorry, but i can't help it. Now i'm mostly just tired because cranky nephew is cranky. He's a stroppy 15 month old and keeping up with him is nuts. Mom and i can't do it on a constant basis, and scott knows it. He's going to have to arrange for help, and be an active daddy while he's here. For now? I've been gloating because she's gone, when not falling over from going after my imp of a nephew.

[ profile] settiai? You were right. Torchwood IS the kinda show i'm all over.

Owen has NO scruples...Ianto intrigues me. Jack? wheeee! I've seen the first two eps, working on downloading the next two. It's got a quite a bit of character development even in two eps, the dialogue i absolutely adore. Much less the free wheeling sexuality that's all over the show. *giggles* YAY for british tv. Where sex is no issue, but the violence is. Which is of course, why said violence is minimal and drives the plot. Then again, so does the sex. I really need to worship at Russell T Davies' feet. Genius.

I have a feeling i'm going ot have to find a way to get some region free bootlegs of this one DVD after it finishes airing. Cause i don't know if Scifi would pick this up. Then again, they picked up Ultraviolet back in 2002 so it just might happen. That was as fully adult a show is this, though for different reasons. I'll just have to wait and see.

Oh gods i am SUCH a geek. and i have to get to bed...*headdesks* i NEED icons! And i want the show soundtrack. *squee* Good, well done music. It builds where you need it to and doesn't overpower the dialogue. Just overall...excellent stuff.
