4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Yet Disappointing, 6 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Due South (Audio CD)
I love Due South. I think it's great - quirky, good fun. And the series features a great range of music, so I thought it a good idea to buy the soundtrack. So what have we got? The music on here is from both Series 1 and 2, and is excellent - without a dout. I love the original score Cabin Music, as well as the hauntingly beautiful song Possession. Yet at the same time... there's a lot missing. There is more of Series 1 on the CD, than Series 2, and the second Due South soundtrack is solely Series 3. And I just don't think they chose wisely. As I said, the music is excellent, but at the same time... In my opinion, they didn't need the Fraser/Inuit soliloquy for one - it's a great piece of speech, but out of place on a music CD. They needn't have bothered using the Due South Theme a second time, and some tracks really needn't have a place on the CD. Eia Mater (a bit odd) and American Women (a commen track on most compilations) spring to mind. Other choices are simply a bit strange, like Akua Tuta, when some great, significant pieces have been missed altogether: From A Million Miles, from the Pilot, when Fraser first arrives in Chicago. Full Circle, from Juliet Is Bleeding (S2), at Gardino's funeral. Plenty, from Letting Go (S2). Fear, from A Cop A Mountie and A Baby (S1. And it would have been nice to have one or two more original scores. I'm not damning the CD - it's a real gem. Bone Of Conetention and Henry Martin are two other tracks that particuarlly stand out, along with Paul Gross' All The Queen's Horses track, Ride Forever. I just feel that it should have been evened out more, and some other things put on it.
