Murray Gold hits off again with the Doctor Who: Series 5 soundtrack. Throughout the season, we encountered vicious angels, the Silurians, and of course, the return of the Daleks. Every single episode, Murray Gold did not fail to bring his power to the stage. I got this CD when it first came out in Europe, and because of my love for Murray Gold's music, have not stopped listening to it. Overall, this is a fantastic listen, and with two discs, a HUGE bargain with over two hours of music. There is one con though- like all TV soundtracks, there is music missing.
Track Pros and Cons-
Doctor Who XI: The classic Doctor Who title theme comes back bigger and badder, in a bada** form for series 5.
Down to Earth: Short, but epic. A great opening.
Fish Custard: A short, fun piece that reminds you of Happy Tree Friends...if you don't know what I'm talking about, don't look it up.
I Am The Doctor: The Doctor's main theme, but not the whole thing. If there was one thing that I was sad that was missing, it was the full theme with drums and everything, that you can find in "Every Star, Every Planet" (Not on the disc)
Amy In The TARDIS: A beautiful piece opening with Amy's theme, then at the 3:00 mark, goes into a better, but still not full version of the Doctor's theme.
The Time of Angels: My FAVORITE track. Opens with the creepy angel theme, then at 2:38, goes into the full-blown angel battle scene with epic drums and creepy strings.
Signora Rosanna Calvierri: Both goods and bads in this one, but still one of my favorites. On my disc, there was something wrong with this track, so it wasn't as good quality. But despite the quieter sound and softer notes, it was good. Even though the beginning is boring, if you stick around until 2:56, you will get a HUGE surprise.
Cab For Amy Pond: Starts a little tedious, then builds up to an ending that is both epic and beautiful. If you like trailer music, than this is one for you. 'Nuff said.
The Vampires of Venice: The main theme for the vampires. Zimmer meets Elfman. Also, 'Nuff said.
*** Until Disc 2, when music from the Lodger starts, most music isn't worth noting.
A Useful Striker: when I first heard this it struck me as a good ring tone. And sure enough, listening to it every day on my phone still isn't enough.
Kiss the Girl: Probably one of the most deceiving titles. The longest track in the soundtrack, clocking at 5:14, its full of epic action and quick-paced frenzy. The end, when the Doctor is walking out of the upstairs space ship at the end of the episode, the epic theme that is playing is slightly cloaked by horns in the soundtrack (4:28). As far as I could tell, it was pure drums and strings in the episodes, no horns.
River Runs Through It: A really great song if you are a fan of Zimmer or Sean Murray.
Words Win Wars: An epic version of the Doctor's theme. Wait until no one is in the house, then BLAST IT.
The Life and Death of Amy Pond: BEAUTIFUL. but the name says it all.
Honey I'm Home: My favorite track on Disc 2. Perfect to listen to on a rainy day. But what really gets me every time I hear it, is the cello blip at 0:28.
The Sad Man With A Box: If you play piano, find this sheet music. Absolutely astounding. And then it goes into an epic version of Little Amy's theme at 1:55.
Onwards: Another track of the Doctor's theme, this time closer to "Every Star, Every Planet".
Package Pros and Cons-
Good sized booklet for reading all about the tracks. (Yes...unlike a lot of composers, Murray Gold includes information on his music.)
Tight, slim, fancy package.
The back is just a little boring, but I suppose it has to be if you have 63 tracks.
One of the best soundtracks I have! Buy Now!

Finally we get to Series 5...and Murray Gold you've outdone yourself. Every episode is unique, and the episodes receive their own special theme. Listening to the songs from Vincent and the Doctor still bring tears to my eyes and that this soundtrack is on 2 discs to ensure that we receive all the songs is just fantastic. For fans of Doctor Who this is an absolute must, for fans of excellent scores this album stands on it's own merits. This is highly recommended for both the Whovinite as well as the music enthusiast.
