If you love the series, then surely you've noticed the wonderful musical score infused within every episode. Season Three of Sherlock contains almost as much drama and excitement as season two (my favorite) and the musical soundtrack is no different. After I listened to it, I was itching to re-watch the series for the umpteenth time. Every track reminded me and made me visualize the accompanying scene but this time, with perfect clarity, I can solely focus on the beautiful music and not be distracted by what's onscreen.
It starts out fast and contagious with 'How It Was Done', continues with melancholy tracks like 'Floating Dust' and concludes episode one with the powerfully dramatic 'Lazarus'. Episode two feature lighter tracks such as 'Stag Night', darker ones like 'Major Sholto' and a lovely violin solo for 'Waltz for John and Mary'. Then we arrive at episode three, the darkest of all which include nearly all my favorite tracks on the entire album. My favorites here are the mournful 'Redbeard', 'Addicted To A Certain Lifestyle', a brilliant, ominous track called 'Appledore' and the concluding and sorrowful, 'The East Wind'.
I can't even guess how many times I've listened to this album, whether at work or in my car.(I don't listen at home anymore as my husband gives me a look whenever I even try it now...) It never gets old. David Arnold and Michael Price do a fantastic job, as they have done for Seasons One and Two. I hope their collaboration continues for Sherlock's future. I highly urge anyone who loves and admires Sherlock to try this album out. I can't imagine anyone would be disappointed!
