Person of Interest is part detective show, part cop procedural and part tech-sci-fi-post-9/11-conspiracy-mash-up and the music by Ramin Djawadi reflects all these elements to great success.

A score is only as good as it's themes and Ramin has written several for POI. The main theme, written for 'The Machine' (as it's called) is a catchy slow-build melody that opens and closes the score with 'Watching with Ten Thousand Eyes' and 'Listening with A Million Ears' respectively. It's not as memorable as the one he wrote for Game of Thrones but like the show it grew on me over time. It's an incredibly versatile theme, and the most frequently referenced each episode. Fortunately Ramin does so in ways that are subtle and different enough that it doesn't become stale.

Other notable themes are written for two of the major antagonists in season one, Elias (heard in 'Elias'), and Root (heard in 'Root of All Evil') but themes are also written for main characters, Mr. Reese and Detective Carter. Overall there's plenty of variation going on in the score to keep you listening.

Most of the score is played on strings by the Hollywood Symphony Orchestra but the music is often heavily augmented with underlying electronics and beats to emphasize the tech and sci-fi themes in the show. Percussion is also used to pump up the action elements in queues such as 'Man In A Suit', 'Have A Nice Day' and 'Knock Knock'.

Guitars are also used effectively in more contemplative moments such as 'Do People Change?' and 'Second Chance.'

The main theme written by J.J Abrams is fine and a necessary edition to the score but unmemorable compared to Djawadi's contributions.

Ramin Djawadi is probably getting a lot of attention for his score to Game Of Thrones, but people should definitely not dismiss his intricate and entertaining scoring for this crime drama. Person Of Interest returns Ramin to the world of network television after his incredibly successful run on Prison Break. He juggles the cable show Game Of Thrones as well, but the 22-episode network arc is a much different beast. For Person Of Interest we get really great motifs that make the show intriguing but also give it a bit of character; a rarity for a procedural.

One thing that Ramin is brilliant at with his scoring is creating worlds, which he has gotten better and better at through his career. He has a very distinct scoring style and sound, but each of his scores usually has some indescribable aspect that makes it unique to the story he's scoring. This is the case with Person Of Interest, which blends sci-fi, interesting characters and suspenseful plotting week to week. There's nothing fancy about the instrumentation or the approach here. What I think made this score so entertaining for me were actually the themes and little melodies that would pop up. The score has a subtle hooking quality that grasps you as a listener, which is effective for what the show is. The emotional more human side of the score doesn't play as strong on the listener. Djawadi will use a guitar to accent the music here and there to add an acoustic touch, and it helps. But in the end the score is more of an entertaining and intriguing listen than a suspenseful and emotional one..

Ramin's work on Person Of Interest is solid television scoring and is a very different beast compared to his other TV score. It's great at setting up a plotting pace and injecting some character and identity to the music.

Television and movie scores aren't exactly memorable to me; I may like the movie itself, but it's because of the story elements and such. However, every so often, I come across some really good music. Of the shows I watch on a weekly basis, "Person of Interest" and "The Mentalist" present pieces that I find myself humming during the day. Hans Zimmer has had a similar effect on me with his work on Chris Nolan's Batman series (whose brother just happens to be the creator of this show).

What sticks out so much in this score are the strings. That's what makes it so memorable to me. Listening to the album track by track, you'll certainly know what I'm referring to. The show is dramatic, action-packed, and amazing, and I can honestly say the music adds to that. When hearing "Root of All Evil," the theme for what some might call the evil, female version of Finch, I get chills. It's that awesome.

In my initial play of the album, I found the pieces to be so suspenseful and mysterious. With future seasons, hopefully John and Harold will have happy moments in their lives. I sure hope so because I'd love to see how Ramin Djawadi would make a beautiful or romantic piece with it still feeling like "Person of Interest."

Overall. Five stars. You may not want to dish out ten or fifteen dollars for the album, but it's definitely worth it. If you can spare the extra five bucks, definitely buy the physical album so you'll have the score in a lossless format. I'd hate to think what an MP3 file might take away from this masterpiece.
