I am most MOST disappointed however, in the fact that Murray Gold still has not released a piece of music that was in This series and series 4 from Midnight and Almost People and A Good Man Goes to War. It is a soft harpy piece that follows up to a piano piece that just sends chills down everyones spines.
It seems as though it SHOULD be in the Almost People Suite since the music I am most looking for is playing when The Doctor and Co. are outside the press conference room. and before Amy has birth pains.
In Midnight it plays when The Doctor gets back to Donna Noble and they speak about what happened.
Please if anyone knows how or where to find this track would be a big help! Thanks.
Murray Gold blends multiple styles into one with Doctor Who, and his lush grand orchestrations done with flair make for an enticing listen. Some cues have epic cinematic scopes and since he is such a melodic composer we always have some sort of tune to grasp onto. This isn't bland background scoring and every moment has a gathered momentum heading somewhere. There is always an element of wry humor behind the music in certain areas, and he knows when to play off it or pull back. The music can be romantic and at times even "cartoony", but the experience as a whole never suffers from multiple personalities.
Doctor Who: Series 6 is another fantastic entry to the already impressive collection of music composed by Murray Gold. Doctor Who fans will dive right in and enjoy every moment, but I urge anyone who has not taken the plunge to do so now. Modern sensibilities done with classic stylings make Doctor Who a shining gem in the world of television scores.
This consistency may be partly due to the source material in Series 6 itself -- there hasn't been such an integrated season since way back in Colin Baker's reign as the Gallifreyan time lord -- but for the most part I believe that it's simply symptomic of Gold becoming better and better at his craft. While I've always enjoyed Gold's work on "Doctor Who," there have been many times in the past where it has seemed that the tracks were too, well, over-the-top -- "This is the dramatic part!" "This is a really scary part!" and so on. This album, by contrast, is far more subtle and yet no less impactful -- I find myself simply letting the music carry me along on a wonderful ride, to the point where it's quite a shock when the final note fades away.
The album pulls you in right from from the beginning. "I Am The Doctor In Utah" sets the tone, contrasting the familiar with something quite different. (Take a good, long listen to the 7/4 beat of this variation of "I Am The Doctor" -- although Gold will tease you with this melody throughout the entire album, this is the only time you'll hear it in its orchestral entirety until the very end.Read more ›
