In scoring this cult TV hit, Fred Mollin exhibits a flair for the bombastic and the subdued. The two extremes often battle for dominance within his synthesized orchestrations--one minute, tempestuous strings and brass surge and monstrous percussion pounds ferociously only to give way to a delicate piano or harp melody. It's an appropriate sonic clash for a series about a blood-sucking detective with a soft spot for humanity. Within this intense maelstrom of sound, however, Mollin finds order and balance with a consistent ebb and flow in drama and dynamics. In spite of its obvious synthetic qualities, Forever Knight is a dramatic illustration of the potency of electronic scores in the TV realm. Toronto torch singers Lori Yates and Molly Johnson also appear. --Bryan Reesman

But even if you aren't a vampire, I recommend these to you as long as you like romance and drama in a soundtrack, or enjoy well-crafted pop songs with a shadowy twist. Mollin's work will well reward your attention.
Much of the soundtrack's score is devoted to the flashback scenes from centuries past, of the bloodlust that consumes Nick, his master LaCroix, and his lover/vampire sibling Janette, so it is appropriately dark and moody, with heavy percussion, ominous strings and sudden crashes. There are softer, gentler songs as well, such as "Suite from Queen of Harps" and "Nick's Lullaby."
The music is 100% synth(etic), which may be a turnoff for some but Fred Mollin's music sets the stage perfectly for midnight prowls through Toronto's seedier, darker side. The songs with vocals by Torontonian Lori Yates (originally a country singer) are my favourite parts of the soundtrack. There are four songs from the first two seasons: "The Hunger," "Black Rose," "Touch the Night" and "Dark Side of the Glass." These songs are dark and brooding, played in LaCroix's vampire/Goth club "The Raven" (the actual building was the Fluid Lounge at 217 Richmond W).
This is a must-have companion for fans of "Forever Knight," along with the sequel CD "More Music from Forever Knight." There were also three FK novels published: "These Our Revels" by Anne Hathaway-Nayne, where Nick performs in Shakespeare's company, "Intimations of Mortality" by Susan M. Garrett, and "A Stirring of Dust" by Susan Sizemore. Although the show is no longer on the air, the vampiric legacy of Nick Knight lives on through the music of Fred Mollin. Ten stars and lots of happy memories!
If you are a Forever Knight fan you're gonna love this CD, actually if you're an FK fan you can't live without this CD. So my advice is: Buy as many CD as you can afford, you need one at home, one at work, on in your car(maybe a tape) on at all your friends and relatives house. You're gonna want to listen to it 24 hours a day.
I got it a month ago and my CD player doesn't stop playing it, I'm listening to it all the time ( it's playing right now). It's a WONDERFUL CD.
