The music totally captures the essense of the show.,
This review is from: The Mole [TV Soundtrack] (Audio CD)
In a time where television audiences are inundated with "reality" television shows, for me, _The Mole_ shines through as the absolute best. It challenges the viewer to think and almost play along with the contestants, not just sit and watch like all others do. While being a show about intrigue, _The Mole_ is able to also show the qualities of a human that are what makes us truly human. It shows compassion, cooperation, joy, and playfulness, just to name a few. It has even shown that no matter what possion one is in, one still can feel vulnerable.
The music is a wonderful coloring to the content of the show. There are playful songs ("Dirty Laundry" and "751 Sheep," for example). There are tense songs ("Cornfield Maze" and "The Fortress" among others). All the music is fully thought out by the composer to do its intended job. Many people who appreciate and understand music know that music's job is to rally one's emotions, and this soundtrack does that.
I've been going through some really harsh spots of depression the past several years; however, _The Mole_ and the music accompaning it have been one of the few bright spots that have helped to keep me going. So, I definitely recommend this soundtrack to everyone who's watched the show and enjoyed it.
