Ear Hurting but Classic, you can't deny
on 19 August 2004
This soundtrack was always going to be predictable. In much the same way a score like Star Wars can be listened to independently and you know exactly what part of the film the music is for, this music does the same for the Sea Devils. The horrible pangs of music which you remember from watching this six part classic are all included, and thats what makes it great. Unless, of course, for some odd reason, you didn't like the silly music and pangs of electronic riffs in the series. These pangs and themes are strange and quite unlike any other music you've ever heard. And i cheer this fact. This album includes the music from Inferno, The Mind of Evil, The Claws of Axos and the Sea Devils, as well as three versions of the Who theme (1970s opening and closing, 1980s opening). Also included are various sound effects, great for use in home videos and amateur Doctor Who movies (i know i do). Whats sorely missing is The Ambassadors of Death and the Silurians. Why these episodes, which do have have great music riffs and themes, are excluded, eludes me. However, despite this, a great album.
