The Neil Cross created and Idris Elba starring powerhouse series Luther is a huge success of its genre. The crime drama genre tends to find new ways of exploring the deep dark material it typically covers, and Luther is definitely a unique one. I’ve noticed that it’s quite rare for a TV series to have a big bold score like LOST did for example. TV scoring approaches usually boil down to a brilliant combination of songs, score and silence. Very much like Breaking Bad did. Luther falls into that latter group and it’s very evident by this soundtrack release. This album combines the songs and score that together makeup the soundscape of Luther. Paul Englishby’s terrific score works hand in hand with the songs to craft the tone and narrative structure.

If you try to isolate the score presented here in the album you’ll notice that Englishby is definitely painting a portrait of the titular character, and his music does a great job of that. There are some truly stunning moments such as the track “The Children” which features a painfully beautiful and aching violin. Most of the score embodies a brooding darkness to it, and that is perfect for ramping up tension. You won’t be able to get a sense of the score’s structure since this one CD covers all 3 series, which granted is only 14 episodes but still this CD is meant to cover the entire series so far. The song choices are perfect and truly do fit quite nicely in this dark brooding tale. The theme of the devil is apparent through the song choices and the darkness of the score. All in all the package is a decent representation of this show’s pulpy soundscape.

Luther’s musical approach is a unique one. Paul Englishby’s score is the definite highlight of this package and it gets a decent amount of spotlight here. The songs work as well as the score in the sonic quilt that meshes both together. You’ll enjoy this deep brooding plunge into darkness that manages to paint itself a unique identity.

Every piece seems carefully chosen. I think this would be enjoyable even if it was not part of a very well written and well acted tv program.

Liked the soulful, jazzy songs that also have a rock vibe. Some of the cuts are more driving, dramatic, and some are vocally focused. Massive Attack's contribution to the album was my favorite, love the voice of the lead singer. Paul Englishby always delights.

After watching all three seasons of Luther I had to have the sound track. There's some real gritty cuts on this CD. New takes on old songs with a lot of heart and feel.

This show has a great, moving soundtrack. An eclectic mix of genres and artists, some songs on this soundtrack have made it into my own personal soundtrack.
