The reimagining of Sherlock by writers Stephen Moffat and Mark Gatiss has produced some of the best British drama in recent times. Aside from the fantastic acting and the brilliant writing, one of the best things about the show is the BAFTA and EMMY nominated score by David Arnold (best known for his recent scores to the James Bond franchise and 90s blockbusters Independence Day and Godzilla) and Matthew Price. Their music fits the show perfectly - modern but quirky, this is a master class in TV scoring. In case it isn't clear, this contains music for the three episodes of series 1 only. The link to the series 2 soundtrack is listed below.

The album begins with the opening titles, and the backbone of this theme is reprised in various forms across the album. I won't go into detail on every track (there are 19 in total). Some of my favourites were the wonderful "Opening Titles" (track 1), "War" and "Final Act" (Track 19), which plays over the climax of series 1. My favourite however, was "Elegy" (Track 12), which featured a great female vocalist during the middle section of the track before ending on a sombre piano and string note. Regardless of my opinion, the key thing is that all the best themes and motifs are present across the album.

The score lasts a little under an hour, and this is a decent length. Of course, more music was written for the show than can be heard on album so some cues are inevitably left out. Regardless, I thought the track selection was excellent and I doubt anyone could be unhappy with this release. The sound quality is fantastic as you would hope and expect.

The only negative thing - why on earth did it take so long to release this? Given it's critical acclaim by the public and critics alike, the wait for this release has been too long!

I can highly recommend the soundtrack of Sherlock BBC Series One. It is really fun to listen to it.
If you have seen series one, you will be absolutely delighted about the soundtrack. Enjoy it!!!

Ordered this after power-viewing the Sherlock series (1 & 2) across a few days and now pining for Series 3 to be released. The CD is well done and features more music than I recall. Seems the show's producers really like "the game is on" and a few other themes, but the others are good supporting tracks as well.

Now I'm wondering how much difference there is in the Series 2 soundtrack?

If you like Sherlock you will love this, bringing back images through the music of different parts within the episodes, Fun, boisterous, thoughtful are just three of the moods recreated...there is much depth in this CD.

I love the show and the music. It sounds excellent! and you don't need to be a fan of the serie to enjoy the music. It captures the spirit of the show. You will enjoy it.

The soundtrack from season 1 Sherlock is simply brilliant. I hadn't heard of David Arnold and Michael Price before, now this CD and the series 2 one are my most played CDs.
