Title The Tripods Remix Limited Edition
Rating 7/10
Composer Ken Freeman
Label, Year Gercd 1.2, 1997 (Maxi Single)


The Tripods


The Tripods” was a revolutionary cult TV series by the BBC, and this is a remix maxi single with of parts of the score

Freeman re-arranged parts of his score in a surprisingly new way. He describes this release as a “collectors CD of remixed Tripods tracks”. Ingenious idea to produce such a release, which turns out all-new aspects of the original compositions. I appreciate the re-arrangement of the main theme very much. Too bad this CD did not hit the UK charts, as Freeman's “Oxide/Neutrino garage version” of his Casualty theme did in 2000. 

This CD comes recommended for any hardcore fan of series, or of synthesizer music with a certain “cult” factor.
