4.0 out of 5 stars Ben Foster brings his A-game to Torchwood October 16, 2008
Format:Audio CD
For whatever reason, the American iTunes store has released this album for download quite a bit before the scheduled release date in the United Kingdom, and being the fan that I am of both Murray Gold and Ben Foster, I jumped at the chance to get the album in digital form ASAP.

I can't comment on the presentation of the disc itself as I've not gotten it yet, but the music itself is astonishing. While Ben Foster isn't quite as seasoned as Murray Gold on the composing front, he more than holds his own. The themes and motifs he's written to represent these characters range between grungy rock and heart-wrenching orchestra.

Stand out tracks include Owen's Theme -- a piece of music that was particularly popular among fans -- and Gray's Theme, which utilizes the voice of Annalise Whittlesea in much the same way Doctor Who utilized Melanie Pappenheim. Captain Jack's Theme is an epic composition that many fans will remember from the series 2 trailer that aired at the end of Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang.

While there's plenty of tracks that get the pulse racing, there's also a lot of quiet emotion on display here. Often the music is much more somber and reflective than what is heard on the parent show, but it manages to avoid the trap of becoming nothing more than atmospheric noise, and it certainly never gets dull. The last 5 tracks on the disc are almost entirely comprised of soft mournful melodies, but it works to great affect.

The extended version of the Torchwood theme is... odd. It begins by pasting the opening titles music (all eight seconds worth) onto the ending titles theme, but then segues into a piece that was used as incidentals on the show. The editing is a bit bumpy, but it works well enough.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Music, Awful Quality. November 10, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This CD for me is a tragedy. It has really awesome music in it, but the quality is so bad some of the tracks are unlistenable. It's like some deaf (or stupid) sound engineer turned the gain up super high. The track "Sleeper, Awake!" has ridiculous clipping distortion.

Again, the music itself is great. If you're not sensitive to horrible digital distortion then you'll love this CD. If you are, I'd highly recommend you preview the tracks thoroughly before buying.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Music, but Beware of Slackjob Mastering! August 21, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
It's unfortunate that I purchased this before I read the reviews. If you can get past the horrid mastering snafu on some of the more prominent tracks (i.e., "Captain Jack's Theme"), then you'll thoroughly enjoy this soundtrack. I wish I could return the MP3s having heard how bad some of these are...

That said, Ben Foster (and the BBC orch of Wales, natch) did an amazing job, making this series' music an emotionally charged gem in the sea of TV soundtracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! October 21, 2010
By eidylon
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I really love this music; I know some people complained about the mastering quality. However, I bought my copy (as MP3 download) on 10/20/2010, and it seems maybe the publisher has provided Amazon with updated MP3s, because i did not hear any distortions or crackling. And the music is great! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Just brilliant September 18, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This whole album is just brilliant. It has a good mixture and catches the very essence of Torchwood. The orchestra does a fantastic job and blends different aspects of music beautifully. I especially love the four songs for Owen and Captain Jack's Theme, but you will find that this whole album will be one that is great to just put on repeat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Music August 31, 2013
By Torymis
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I loved this soundtrack. I listen to it when at work to motivate me, especially Captain Jack's Theme, The Death of Dr.Owen Harper, and Owen Fights Death. They are upbeat enough to help me past the boring patches in the day.

Other tracks are good as well and worth the listen.

Great soundtrack though it's not really what I expected. Some songs on there that I had to go back and watch episodes on the DVD to find the actual songs..... Good music all the same though.

3.0 out of 5 stars high quality
I said high quality, by which I mean the product is clear, scratch-free, pretty, and cheap. The music is forgetable, but that's to be expected, isn't it? Read more
