Torchwood: The Conspiracy by David Llewellyn (CD review).

There are changes afoot at Big Finish because…drum roll it looks like it might be canon! Since the sad demise of AudioGo a couple of years ago, there have been an empty space there the ‘New Who’ audios used to be. There is an established customer base, youngsters who might not buy old ‘Doctor Who’ […]

Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Original Soundtrack Album) by Bear McCreary (CD review).

Under consideration here is the ‘Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ soundtrack composed by Bear McCreary. Now the thing with movie and TV programme soundtracks in general (I’m not talking about musicals here), is that they were written as supporting material. They were not conceived as something separate from the film/TV program, to standalone by themselves. That […]

Spectre’s Writing’s On The Wall (new Sam Smith Bond theme).

I don’t know much about Sam Smith’s music, but he’s cranked out a right stonking Bond theme for the new SPECTRE movie. Loved the last trailer, too. Let’s hope the film lives up to the early promise.

The Fantastic Four (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) By Marco Beltrami and Philip Glass (CD theme review).

The fact that Phillip Glass co-scored this Marvel movie alongside Marco Beltrami is something of a surprise. Whilst the renowned US minimalist composer has flirted with genre before with films such as ‘Candyman’, this is the first time that he’s worked on a bona fide Hollywood blockbuster in ‘The Fantastic Four’. Alongside Beltrami, who has […]

Fifth Element’s opera – now, not so impossible for a human to sing!

If you remember that alien diva-sung opera from the scifi film The Fifth Element (called ‘Il dolce suono’), you’ll also recall all the music academics at the time saying no human could ever sing this song outside of the synthesizer used to hype and mimic the alien’s voice for the film. Well, a little 13-year […]

Kim Jong-un: just make it stop!

According to our chums over at Boing Boing, this is the Girls’ Generation K-pop hit that was played to near extinction by South Korea in their recent audio duel of the border bands with North Korea – no wonder Kim Jong-un was pleading to make the sonic assault stop. We’d probably mobilise our submarine fleet too!

Dr. Cosmo’s Tape Lab- “Beyond The Silver Sea”’    (music review)

‘Dr. Cosmo’s Tape Lab: “Beyond The Silver Sea”’ is something a little different and a lot special. It is a knowing retro-nod to great musical SF classics but with a perky 60s surf vibe. Imagine if Jeff Wayne’s ‘War Of The Worlds’ was played by the Beach Boys with guest guitarist Johnny Marr and was […]
