1979 Revolution: Black Friday – Original Video Game Soundtrack by Nima Fakhrara (MP3 review).

‘1979 Revolution: Black Friday’ is set in Tehran and you play a photojournalist who returns to Iran amid the bloody uprising against the ruling Shah. The game promises an immersive story as those you love deal with the consequences of the choices you make. Therefore the music has a rather big task in creating the […]

Deadpool Reloaded: More Music From The Motion Picture (CD review).

I should point out from the start that this isn’t the original soundtrack but the extra music tracks from the 2016 film ‘Deadpool’. Based on opening track, ‘Merc With A Mouth’, lyrics, ‘Deadpool Reloaded’ is clearly adult orientated, which is a shame as the rest of the tracks from the film are more general issue […]

The Terminator: Original Music by Brad Fiedel (soundtrack review).

There are times when I jump at an opportunity. Everyone knows the music from ‘The Terminator’ although I bet you would be hard pushed to remember its composer, Brad Fiedel. Even after all these years, the music is strong enough to be listened to sans the visuals and is still sinister by implication and still […]

X-Men: Apocalypse. Original Soundtrack by John Ottman (CD review).

There are many tonal differences between the Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes. While fun and colour dominate the Marvel world, the DC world opts for a dark palette and even darker feel. While light-hearted banter is key in the world of Marvel, their DC counterparts go for a more operatic and gruff turn of phrase. […]

Humans: original soundtrack by Cristobel Tapia Veer (CD review).

Now this is unusual. It’s rare to see a new TV series having 2 CDs together for a first season release. ‘Humans’ does. Then again, viewing Cristobel Tapia Veer’s credits, maybe that should be less surprising as he is award-winning and looks like he was adding more musical texture to each episode. Veer’s music is […]

Doctor Who: The Sixth Doctor – The Last Adventure (CD review).

This is it then, the final story for Sixie. ‘Doctor Who: The Sixth Doctor – The Last Adventure’ is a four-hour extravaganza that sees out the Sixth Doctor in appropriate style. Four companions and four hours of tall tales is a good way to signal the retirement of Number 6 (not that one). It’s not […]

J.R.R. Tolkien versus George R.R. Martin: rap battle!

Yes, it’s the J.R.R. Tolkien versus George R. R. Martin: rap battle you have been waiting for. Is Tolkien Towering, and did George RR Martin pirate the great man’s two middle initials for nefarious reasons? Only this RAP BATTLE can answer those deep questions, I’m afraid, which means you are definitely going to have to […]
