4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but...,
This review is from: Green Wing (Audio CD)WHERE'S THE MUSIC FROM MAC AND CAROLINE'S MOMENTOUS FIRST KISS IN THE BATHROOM!?
Honestly, it's the most sentimental piece of music the series features (and so arguably the most important to us sentimental viewer/listeners) - and it's not there!
Despite this, the soundtrack is still a must-buy for any GW addict who appreciated the show's fantastic use of music. The music sounds just as good on its own as it does with the show, and evokes those special moments/memories for anyone who's experienced them.
But finally my GW catalogue won't be truly complete until I've found the Mac/Caroline kiss-scene music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky, humourous,
This review is from: Green Wing (Audio CD)This music was written specifically as incidental and theme music for "Green Wing". However, even if you're not a big fan of "Green Wing" the music works on its own merits, being an amalgamation of interesting themes and unusual sounding instruments which perfectly convey mood and humour, even if the track titles are a bit idiosyncratic. Very likely to be "borrowed" from your collection and never returned, this music will pop up all over the place - TV ads, radio announcements etc. for years.
Its cool, as is Trellis - lets hope for more soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to describe brilliance... of course it's Green Wing.,
This review is from: Green Wing (Audio CD)Green Wing's soundtrack, not unlike the show itself, is almost impossibly enjoyable.
Anyone that's watched the show -- and let's face it, that's the target market -- should be over the moon with the collection of tracks here that bring to mind all sorts of scenes from the show itself. That said, even without the context and memories, the album works beautifully in the lounge, on the exercise bike, driving along or having a stroll. Hard to pigeonhole, the closest I've come is to say that it sounds like the spaced out music on Blur's "13" crossed with a DJ Shadow vibe... and soaked in whiskey in the sun.
Note: listening to the album can fill the void when your mates borrow the Green Wing DVDs, but may result in you abusing them on the phone and demanding their return immediately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic but incomplete!,
This review is from: Green Wing (Audio CD)The music is sheer brilliance and is a unique collection of tunes from the show which should be bought! However there is only about 40% of the music from the show and it is not complete! A complete soundtrack is needed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun music and a great reminder,
On top of this, any fans of the Green Wing programme (such as myself) will love it even more; it transports you back to all those brilliant moments and will bring many a smile to your face.
If you're a Green Wing fan then this is a definite, if you're not then I'd still recommend the album as something fun to have in the background for all occasions.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music From a Great Series,
5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! Love it! Love it!,
There are those who complain that there is a missing track. Or maybe two. But with sampling rights and so on I guess some things are tricky to get onto a soundtrack album like this. Don't let that spoil what is a great 44.8 minutes of music!
5.0 out of 5 stars Much more music than I remember from the TV, all great,
This review is from: Green Wing (Audio CD)I got given a DVD Green Wing boxed set recently and while watching it was reminded how great the music was. I did some digging to see if I could find who the band was, and was surprised to learn it was composed just for the show and available on this soundtrack CD. What you get is one 45 minute CD with 23 short tracks - typically one or two minutes each. To be honest I had no idea if it would work on it's own, but I'm glad I risked the purchase because it's great - even though the tracks are short, they follow each other beautifully so they sound longer than they are. There is so much more music on here than I remember from the TV show, simply loads of musical ideas woven together with the drum beats and little samples that give it the groove from the TV. It's amazing! Must have taken ages!! Fantastic!
