5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent TV soundtrack, 30 Sept. 2013

This review is from: Vikings (Audio CD)
I am going to start this review with the negatives. Whilst this is odd for a five star review, the reasons will become clear. My first quibble is that some themes are reused quite a bit, even though each track is noticeably different. Also, for an album with well over thirty tracks, there is not as much variety in the score as I would have liked.
But the reasons why these two points do not worry me are simple. I cannot care if the tracks are quite similar to one another, when I like the sound of them so much. And the tracks that do stand out are some of the best I have heard. Trevor Morris has made a wise decision in creating his score; despite the time period of the show, he has not become bogged down in choosing instruments from the era, and in many of the tracks, the reason for this becomes clear. The heavy drums, rousing orchestral sections and raw synth all combine with excellent effect. It is good to see that someone has taken a great deal of effort with a television score, and it has more than paid off.
There are many tracks on this album that stand out, but there a few that I would name my favourites. Battle Field captures the show's opening scene vividly, and Battle on the Beach is one of the finest pieces of fight music I have ever heard. But the two best have to be Ragnar Fights the Earl, and North Sea Storm. The first is stirring and stands out from every other track, whilst the latter uses booming drums and immense synth to bring the storm to life.
Overall, a fine album, and a great soundtrack.

Matches the series perfectly. Very atmospheric. Great depth of sound and evocative. A bit similar across the album but still worth it if you enjoy soundtracks.
