Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

I'm delighted to see these 2 discs here, because I think Fred Mollin's stylish and versatile work for "Forever Knight" has been criminally overlooked, and deserves a much wider audience. Here you get the best of it: not only his dramatic, atmospheric orchestral suites for some of the best episodes in the series, but also four gorgeous, dark-romantic pop songs that could have been massive hits for someone (Bonnie Tyler, say, or Heart...) had fate been kinder. (Several were featured in the episode "Dying for Fame" as the work of fictional rock star Rebecca, and they continued to be heard on the sound system at the Raven nightclub for the rest of the series' run.) Hauntingly sung by Lori Yates, these vampire-themed beauties--"The Hunger", "Black Rose", "Touch the Night" and especially "Dark Side of the Glass"--just cry out to be rediscovered by Goth bands, updated to the 00's and raised to long-overdue stardom. (--Yes, Radu, I'm talking to you! I *know* you read everything I write! =)
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.

"Forever Knight" was a fabulous(ly cheesy) Canadian sci-fi series that was filmed and set in Toronto. It lasted for three seasons and revolved around the unlife of Toronto homicide detective Nick Knight, a 700-year old vampire who longed to be mortal and redeem himself from centuries of killing and blood.
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best CD, it is simply wonderful Jan. 7 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD can please everybody. You can listen to 14 instrumentals songs that's gonna remind you scene of your favourite serie, one of theme is perfomed by Nick (GWD). You can also listen to 4 of Lacroix's monologues, they are short but very good. And you can listen to 4 songs with lyrics with the vocal by Lori Yates, the voice that you're use to hear at the Raven. My favourites are The Hunger (#2), Dark Side of the Glass (#22) and the Forever Knight Theme (#1) I also love all 4 of Lacroix's monologues (#3,10,14,21) and Nick's piano theme (#7). But they are all very, very, very good.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Haunting and Engaging Look at Immortality Oct. 9 1998
Format:Audio CD
Being a Forever Knight fan myself, I knew there was no way I could go without this CD, especially after the show's cancellation. I must say it is mesmerizing. Nigel Bennett's monlogues and Lori Yates' vocals are the real highlight of this album. Nigel knows exactly what needs to be put forward for LaCroix and we almost feel as if we're listening to a live Nightcrawler broadcast--makes me wish there were such a late-night radio show! Lori is phenomenal, as usual, gracing us with her song, bringing the voice of the lost and desperate vampire center stage and allowing us FK fans to re-live many a Forever Knight memory(a good thing for us who still mourn the cancellation!). Fred Mollin--what can I say? A true master of his craft. He knows just what we want to hear and lays it out for us just within our grasp. It's electronic and monotone, yes, but since when did a vampire need extra instrumentation to accentuate his emotions? LaCroix had his violin, Nick the piano(and and impressive turn for Geraint Wyn Davies with his rendition of Nick's theme on track 7!) I am eagerly awaiting the release of the follow-up CD by Crescendo in the winter on 98 or Spring of 99...it promises much more Nick and LaCroix moments! All hail to Fred Mollin, Forever Knight soundtrack God! \/'' ''\/
