Apples and oranges. One film was about something, the other is about nothing. So I really don't think one can compare the two musically.

I like this comment!

I do agree with this score being a little bit of a letdown (though I have yet to see it in the context of the film itself) a bit and wholeheartedly agree with the reason being a lack of proper organic evolution of the score through the narrative.

I will say though I will take this over some of the derivative mega summer blockbuster synthetic faux orchestra cello army Remote Control/Zimmer scores any day.

I could go on and on about the issues I had with this movie, but this review pretty much sums it up much more eloquently than I ever could. *Warning* MAJOR SPOILERS *Warning.

I don't know the person who wrote that review but I owe him a six pack for making me laugh while groaning at how right I was about this reboot bullshit.



Come on, man.
At least SEE the film for yourself before shitting on it everywhere?


You've already judged it.

A letdown? It's better than the first one!

Well, I for one love this score and I think it is better then the previous one. The mix sounds a whole lot better as well. The 2009 score always sounded kind of muted or muffled to my ears but this one has a lot more punch and just makes it more fun to listen to IMO. Can't wait for the deluxe edition!

Ive only heard 22 minutes of the score, and it sounds better than anything else Ive heard this year.
I'll stay optimistic.

Fair comment. But I did see the film... I attended a preview screening last week.

I'm pretty sure he was talking to LeHah.

Yeah.

I don't mind people disliking certain filmmakers.
I mean hell, I dislike Michael Bay movies generally...what story there is just bad.
I know what to expect...but I don't crap on a movie before seeing it.

Its rather frustrating that the wonderful "Ode to Harrison" cue that the composer played during the radio broadcast preview, and incorporated into his suite performed by the GSPO in the Varese 35th anniversary concert, is not included in the 40+ minute cd.

I definitely share your frustration.

I broke down and got it on iTunes, though the physical CD is also pre-ordered.

I love the Harrison Theme arrangement in Brigadoom. Shows how the theme works in a more quite mode.

Frankly, if the score warrants it (and to me it sounds like it might), a Deluxe Edition would be most welcome.

On the 18th, I'll have a better idea as to the score when I see the movie.

I only bought one track..."The San Fran Hustle". That ought to tide me over until the CD comes out.

It is better than 2009 and the mix is tremendously better, but still a little bit of a letdown.

As for ode to Harrison, it's mostly on the album just chopped up and sprinkled all throughout

From what I have heard so far, I also have to say I´m a bit disappointed.

But I know why.

Not because Giacchino´s score is bad. In fact it is miles ahead of the competition.

However, it can only pale in comparison with Jerry Goldsmith´s or James Horner´s work for STAR TREK.

Which might be due to the fact that movies these days are so different from those earlier ones. Today, a movie is cut faster and features more action sequences. The whole rhythm is different and does not leave as much room for all those lyrical parts I loved in Goldsmith´s and Horner´s scores.

I bet Goldsmith would be forced to score in a very different way today, as well. And lots of his 90´s work already showed the way scores would (have to) change.

I was not a fan of both the first film and the score.

I do like the second score more. Sounds more mature and focused.
Although the blending of the original Trek themes found briefly in Kirk Enterprises and Star Trek Main Theme sound nice, I really wonder why they are needed. I think Giacchino's new theme, while not as memorable, works well for the films and doesn't need to call it. Pick one theme and go with it.

Downloaded this from iTunes in Canada, and "The Growl" was included, so add Canada to the list.
