It's available from Amazon...

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B009AKJ97Q/ref=mp_s_a_2?pi=SL75&qid=1348692625&sr=8-2

The original unused score is available too under the title Drokk. It's awesome too and sounds even more Carpenteresque than the score used. I've been listening to both almost nonstop the past 3 days...

Thanks, but those digital download services aren't available here. Crap.

Leonard-Morgan posted the whole score on his YouTube page.

This score is abomination. I mean I like electronic scores. Heck, I even prefer 'em over orchestra. But this one (Dredd) is... uugh...

Saw this last night and loved it. Solid 4 star film.

Urban was just awesome. The scowl, the walk, the attitude... he totally nailed it.

Thirlby is seriously HOT. I was a little worried that such a cute chick wouldn't work well as his partner here, but she held her own and served a purpose. I didn't know about her abilities before seeing the film, so that was a cool angle. It sure came in handy on more than one occasion.

I remember reading an interview with Heady where she described MaMa as being like a great white shark, and I think that's a fairly spot-on observation. Her casual attitude toward brutality was pretty chilling. Loved the makeup.

Adding to the tense tone is the pulsing electro-score by Paul Leonard-Morgan. I downloaded this from Amazon and like a lot of others, have been playing it non-stop. Will also have to check out the aforementioned rejected score "Drokk".

It's a shame this is tanking. I would love to see a sequel or two with this same cast/crew. There's no pretense here; just a hard-hitting, no frills, uncompromisingly brutal slice of violent cinema. I can't wait to see it again on BD.

The music was pure 80's.

There was dubstep in the 80's? Or was that Gregson-Williams' Total Recall score. I can't tell the difference any more.

+1. I caught the dubstep too. Interesting that EDM is entering film scores. But yeah, they could have copy pasted Total Recall or for that matter some random synth/drone/ambient music into the film and it probably would have gave the same result. I don't want to say too much because I already sparked a "film score doldrums" thread a while back that went on for weeks. LOL But did the character Dredd even get a theme?

Just saw it. Loved it. Old-school hard R action. Some of the best use of 3D to date. Love the score. Got the DROKK album.
Just pre-ordered the CD from Amazon. Oct 9th.

I still haven't seen it but am getting a group to go next week. Our tickets won't add up to $40million or so though. So a sequel is unlikely. I think it'll do well on DVD and Blu-Ray though.

I like the track Ma-Ma's Reqiuem, will have to go through full tracks of the rest of it. Didn't warm to the samples at all. Would've loved to have seen Beltrami on it, que sera.

Still gutted it tankes. Keep hoping word of mouth pushes up its takings a bit. Unlikely, i know.

Dredd had a 30% increase from Monday to Tuesday and was in 4th place. Word of mouth starting to get around?

I have seen Dredd 3D, and heard it's score (which improves after seeing the film, easily a favorite this year), and I have also heard too much dubstep in my life. Dredd's score is nothing like dubstep. It's Industrial-meets-Punk Rock-meets-John Carpenter/Alan Howarth. That is NOT dubstep.

Saw the film today. 'Twas essentially The Raid: Redemption with dum-dum bullets in place of silat, but still quite enjoyable.

Couldn't tell you about the score, though.


As a matter of fact, it's the reverse. Dredd was in production first. Even Raid director Gareth Evans admits this. Both films are good and there seems to be no real ill will from either camp.

Here's a great interview with Alex Garland that touches on this;

Dredd went through a whole bunch of reshoots though (I remember that the film was supposed to be ready for Christmas 2011 but Lionsgate hated the first cut).

A week or so ago, it was announced that the Dredd soundtrack was number one on the Amazon UK Downloads and number 3 on Itunes.

On Thursday Paul Leonard-Morgan posted on fb that his soundtrack album has gone to number one on the US Amazon new soundtrack releases. Woot!

Well deserved, I think the soundtrack has been one of the great unexploited tools in the marketing of this film. Why the trailers didn't feature Paul Leonard Morgan's astonishing work is beyond me.

Yeah, I was confusing it with Gregson-Williams' Total Recall
