Fringe Season 3 Soundtrack Review: This is a review of the television score Fringe Season 3 by Chris Tilton.

“Fringe Season 3 is a good score, but ultamitely a big disappointment for me.”

I don’t know about you, but Fringe is getting better with every season and I think season 3 was the darkest and most enjoyable so far. The music has also been a great happiness of mine and I was highly anticipating this. Chris Tilton is all alone this time and no help from his pals Michael Giacchino and Chad Seiter. I wouldn’t be worried… would you?

So far, Fringe Season 1 by Chris Tilton, Chad Seiter and Michael Giacchino ranks for me amongst the best television scores ever made and Fringe Season 2 isn’t that far behind. Naturally Fringe Season 3 is another highly expected score for me this year. It’s all Chris Tilton this time and personally I love season 3 of Fringe on television. Shame that the ratings aren’t the best because it’s really awesome TV. The score itself is filled to the brim with 76 minutes of music. Just a shame that a lot of it is wasted.

I’m not sure why, but season 3 sounds like a boring trip to the museum compared to the previous seasons which were more like thrill-seeking adventure rides. Everything has been toned down and it suffers because of it and I suffer a lot because of it. It contains many good cues, but only one really good cue called ‘Best Case Scenario’ which has some of the power and energy I felt in love with on the previous albums.

Have Spotify? Listen to the score:


Fringe Season 3 is a good score, but ultimately a big disappointment for me. There’s just not much to be excited about here and I honestly feel like someone robbed me of 76 minutes of potentially great music.

Geek Score: 73.5
