That was a really interesting video, Neil. I've been watching season one and really enjoying the music in it. It's a very good theme.

Great video, thanks for sharing! Britell is my favourite "new" composer.

But please, Vanity Fair, don't call it a theme SONG ... ...

His music throughout the first season is so good.I've yet to watch season 2 but i imagine it's also great. He's becoming a new favourite composer of mine, too. It's great to see his thought process for the theme.

I recently got a 2-month trial subscription to HBO, and have binged all of SUCCESSION in a few days. Great show! I was also very impressed by the score. I've not been a big fan of Britell so far, but this one hit a nerve (or chord). Love those faux-classical compositions, and the way he merges the traditional with the contemporary. It's a great angle -- although set in contemporary times, it's very much an old aristocratic tale that befits the retro music styles, like an old English manor.

I got the "Season 2" soundtrack about a week ago, and have enjoyed it quite a bit. One of my favs of 2020 so far. I don't have the "Season 1" one, but I assume it's more of the same.

It´s really brilliant work by Britell - and I can only agree: SUCCESSION is one of the most entertaining, best written, acted and filmed shows of the decade. Both seasons.

Nice review, Thor. I love the music in and out of the show and it got me into Britell's other works.

Is it just me or does it sound like Mr. Britell got his inspiration directly from Pastime Paradise by Stevie Wonder ?
