By ROBERT W. SAINT JOHN VINE VOICE on December 17, 2013
Format: MP3 Music Verified Purchase
Bought this within hours of it becoming available, as I'm a lifelong fan of both Doctor Who and its music (classic and new). But let me get the negative out of the way first.

This is a "U.S. version", MP3 only, of Silva's recently released "Doctor Who - The 50th Anniversary Collection" (yes, same title). The difference? About 74 tracks, and a few bucks. Let me explain: the UK version is a *four* disc set of 129 tracks -- £10.98 (US $17.87) for the digital version, which we can't buy, or £15.53 (US $25.27 plus $5 shipping) This US version is 55 tracks, digital only, $18.98 on Day One. So we in the USA are paying a little more for a lot less. I'm just more than a bit perplexed why this version cost nearly the same as the UK digital version for 42% of the content. The better purchase is simply to head over to Amazon UK or Silva Screen and buy the physical 4 disc version, get the "lavish 20-page booklet" (we don't even get a digital version), and rip your own MP3s.

Now, having said that, I won't deny that there is easily $20 worth of wonderful music here. Mark Ayres and Silva Screen records have done an outstanding job of production and track selection, much which has never been released before. This is truly a celebration of all 50 years. Even some of the previously available material has been remixed into arrangements of episodic "suites" of music that are a joy to hear. Highlights (for me) were "Revenge of the Cybermen", "The Invasion of Time" (wow, wow, wow!), "The Company (from "The Invasion")", "Back to the TARDIS" (exclusive to the US version??), and the theme tunes themselves, especially the 80s versions which have never sounded so good.

Format: MP3 Music
The music of Doctor Who is certainly something to be celebrated along with the rest of the 50th Anniversary celebrations. From a musical point of view, this series has showcased some of the most innovative approaches to soundtracks (with the BBC Radiophonic works) to the most sublime (Murray Gold's exquisite scores). It is rare to find a collection of music this diverse and challenging; challenging to the contemporary sense of what makes up a soundtrack as well as what is considered "music." From a DW fan's perspective, this is a great survey of the music that fills our ears while we watch our favorite show.

Unfortunately, it isn't the complete 50th Anniversary Collection. This is only a brief summary of the entire collection, which is a 4-disc set being sold in the UK but not in America. Perhaps they didn't think there were enough hard-core fans in the USA to warrant the complete release, and maybe that is true, but being a true fan, I personally could not settle on this 2-disc version. How much could it have cost the producers to at least give Americans the 4-disc set digitally? The American (2-disc) version sold here does contain two tracks the Uk version doesn't (Mark Ayres "30 Years in the Tardis" track and "Infinite Potential" from the episode "The Rings of Akhaten") though these only make up 3 minutes of music and hardly warrant this purchase.

The biggest problem I have with this abbreviated edition is that it costs the same as the 4-disc verion. Order it from Amazon.uk and the shipping cost is still negligable. Why pay $20 for 2 discs of music when you can pay $24 for 4 discs? To me, that is a no-brainer, but perhaps some people do not want all the music.

Amazon is combining the 2 disc and 4 disc reviews. Compare the lists to see which you'd prefer, but make sure you are ordering the version that you want. I own the 4 disc version, and the list was taken from Silva Screen online, but had to be edited compared to the actual issue. One theme missing from both versions is the aborted Delia Derbyshire theme from the 3rd Doctor era.
