Product Description

CD Description

Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law return as Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson in Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows. Guy Ritchie’s follow-up to 2009’s Sherlock Holmes sees Holmes and Watson join forces to outwit and bring down their fiercest adversary, Professor Moriarty, played here by Jared Harris.
As with the first movie, seven-time Oscar® winner Hans Zimmer composed the score. Hans Zimmer further explores the rich music of the Roma culture in Slovakia to create the soundtrack. One of Hollywood’s best known composers, Zimmer’s credits include Inception, Da Vinci Code, The Dark Knight, Gladiator and Pirates of the Caribbean to name but a few. As well as his seven Academy Awards, he is also the recipient of several Grammy® and Golden Globe awards.

After my relative disappointment of the score to Pirates of the Caribbean 4, I was hoping Zimmer would deliver the goods on Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and finish the year on a high. In my opinion, he has achieved that, and I thought SH AGOS was great.

The main theme from the first film is carried over on to this score (although it isn't overused in my opinion). My favourite track by far has to be "Tick Tock (Shadows Part 2)" - mainly dominated by frantic string writing and has the Zimmer trademark stamped all over it. Brilliant stuff.

A point should be raised by the more Gypsy sounding portions of the score - these are tracks 5. "It's So Overt It's Covert", 6. "Romanian Wind", 8. "He's All Me Me Me" and Track 12 "Die Forelle". Track 7 - "Did You Kill My Wife" features a sombre trumpet soloist that has a more Spanish feel to it, and is quite good. As a side note (but is relevant in my opinion), Zimmer went to Slovakia to travel around and get a flavour of the rustic Gypsy style of music in a real authentic setting. When he found several musicians he liked, they were recorded in a studio in Italy. The point that I want to make is that although these tracks are not at all to my musical taste, I can appreciate that effort was made to make the score sound as authentic as possible.

Towards the end of the album, "The Red Book" is another great action track. Track 16 "Memories of Sherlock" is a slow and sombre piano track with some light synth/orchestral ambiance. I really liked it, and the change of pace and style was welcome. "The End?" sounds like a short end credits track and reprises the main Sherlock theme. Zimmer has recently started to put some remixed tracks on the end of his albums - something I don't particularly like.

The soundtrack to the film was excellent as it was with the first film. I'd already purchased the first soundtrack so wanted to add this to my collection. There is not much more to say.
