Talbot's music for the League's three tv series' set a new standard for tv title & score music which no-one has come close to matching (the League's acknowledged love of films was a major influence on the look of the series & the amazingly high production values that the three series' achieved).
Talbot's film score easily matches the best of his tv work for the LoG. The variety of musical styles he has created here mirrors the film's complex, innovative narrative.
My favourites are the funkish 'Leaving for London' & the melodic, beautiful 'It's a Miracle'.
However the highpoint is the film's end titles - a lush re-working of the stunning 'While There's Still Time' from the LoG's brilliant 3rd series. The sweeping orchestration of this piece is inspiring - I think its Talbot's best compositional work so far.
This is the first time that any of Joby Talbot's distinctive work for the League has been released commercially (will the LoG's tv series' music be made available at some point?)
I really hope that the League & Talbot's creative partnership continues - it has produced inspired, original & brilliant work in the past & this OST is a logical progression of their close working relationship.
The OST for the League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse is a must for fans of both the League and Joby Talbot - two sets of geniuses in perfect harmony.
His music for the LoG's tv series set a new standard in TV theme & incidential music - which no-one else has come close to touching (of course, the high production values on the League's tv series' is a reflection of their love of films).
The scope of musical styles on this soundtrack is amazing. I particularly liked the funky 'Leaving for London' & the beautiful 'Its a Miracle'.
But for me the highpoint is the end title music - a stunning, lush re-working of the gorgeous 'While There's Still Time' theme from the League's brilliant 3rd tv series.
This is the first time Talbot's music for the LoG has been available commercially (I wish his music from the tv series could be released). Fans of the League & Joby Talbot will love this.
I do hope their close association & working relationship continues. A great collaboration between two geniuses (the LoG & Talbot)
