Forever Knight was a wonderfully quirky series in so many ways; its demise is a pity. This soundtrack album serves as a decent memento, however, bringing together not only a collection of Fred Mollin cues for the series, but also snippets of Nigel Bennett's dialog as Lacroix and several songs written by Stan Meissner and series creator James Parriott, with vocal performances by Lori Yates. Mollin's music for this series is not overly subtle, but it does have an impressive range -- roaring gothic one moment, suggestively Irish the next, soaring, plunging, crashing, melodramatic, moody, atmospheric in the seconds before huge tom-tom samples crash through the wall and take your ears hostage. In short, it's an album that deserves to be played loud.
