The Man in the High Castle
Season 3
Music from the Prime Original Series


Composer: Dominic Lewis
Label: Varèse Sarabande
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 07 February 2019

Varèse Sarabande release the soundtrack to season three of The Man in the High Castle. Based on Philip K. Dick’s best-selling novel, the series is a startling depiction of an alternate history; a world in which Nazi Germany and Japan were victorious in World War II. In season 3, historic fiction meets science fiction as alternate realty doppelgangers come into play in this what if? nightmare, where fascism rules and “undesirables” must hide under assumed names and lives...

Dominic Lewis builds on his score from The Man in the High Castle's first two seasons. It's atmospheric and engaging, and does manage to deliver some interesting themes.

On balance though, there's little here that you haven't heard before over the course of these 13 tracks (38 min, 32 sec). If you're a keen follower of the show, and enjoyed the previous season release then this represents more of the same.

I did find it enjoyable and atmospheric, in a gothic sort of way, but it's a score that I doubt will last you very long. It's not the sort of release that you'll be enjoying 6 months from now. Perfect in the series, and above average as a listening experience outside the show.
