Past Feature Reviews
A review by David Maddox

Dexter: Music from the Showtime Original Series Eerie, yet melodic, the original score to Showtime's hit series Dexter is as complex as the character himself. The CD selection features a wide range of musical tracks from various versions of the main title theme to Michael C. Hall's character interludes. There are some nice local musical numbers, featuring the Mambo All-Stars and even an Andy Williams piece.

While fans of the show will enjoy the first 11 offerings, tracks 12-25 are what really bring this album to life, so to speak. The original score selections by composer Daniel Licht give the listener melodies haunting with a slight-off kilter element that encapsulates the mindset of Dexter himself. The music is achieves both cerebral and visceral at the same time.

While the music of a show like Dexter probably won't become as much a part of the public consciousness like, say, The Odd Couple theme, it's definitely worth a listen and should be considered simply music in its own right. Either having the CD on in the background or closing your eyes and listening in the dark it serves to stir emotions. Though I don't recommend listing with the lights off if there's anything truly sordid in your past.
