Inhalt: A good soundtrack can fall into one of two categories; something that is perfectly scored to underpin and enhance the images being shown in the film or show the viewer is watching, or something that does just that but is also an experience worth listening to in isolation. While the latter can provide the listener with an evocative experience, recalling favourite moments and visuals, the former can often be frustrating, and it is into this category, for better or worse, that David Arnold's soundtrack for the Amazon and BBC co-produced miniseries, Good Omens, falls. Arnold is certainly a well-known name in film scores, having written the soundtrack for five Bond movies, as well as scoring many of Roland Emerich's films, from Stargate to the much-maligned US adaptation of Godzilla. Probably less well known, however, is his impact on British TV, working on the likes of Little Britain and Sherlock, and it is very much that David Arnold that we get here. Good Omens the series is an adaptation of the book of the same name, originally published in 1990 and co-written by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. It tells the story of the angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley, played respectively by Michael Sheen and David Tennant, two friends since the dawn of man and both somewhat lazy at their respective jobs. The odd couple have managed to find ways to co-exist over the millennia but, when they manage to botch their current assignment to keep an eye on/watch over the anti-christ, they decide to team up to try and prevent the apocalypse. Arnold brings to the soundtrack a whole smorgasbord of tonal influences from bouncy, gothic Danny Elfman-esque sounds to the crunchy distorted guitars of Queen's Brian May (with good reason) via some epic biblical sounding organs, and the BBC present that here in a seemingly generous two-disc package comprising of 62 tracks overall. It's what you'd expect from a good soundtrack and experienced composer like Arnold, full of interconnecting themes and motifs with a good use of repeating
