Well it sounds like a typical Brian Tyler or Hans Zimmer score (whichever you prefer) in that the orchestra is basically a flesh version of pro tools. I don't mind the loudness of it all as that is how Tyler prefers his scores, but it doesn't sound like anything I haven't heard before or is suppose to make me go cowabunga. Yet, that is, as I'll still give the album a go.

Still waiting for a composed and well orchestrated score by that guy....
Cheap stuff....not my cup of tea .

This absolutely could be a stand-in for Guardians of the Galaxy. I can't imagine Tyler's Avengers sounding much different. But I'm actually enjoying that sound at the moment, so I'm happy.

I have very little hope for the movie...may wait until it hits Blu-Ray to see it, not sure. Although Tyler's score does rock! It sucks it won't get a physical CD release. frown

It isn't a rut so much as giving the project an appropriate score. Now You See Me's score was the best thing about the movie, the sound fit the "hip" fast paced feel of the movie. Different style of movie, different score.

Interesting because I thought the tone of the "Now You See Me" score was waaaay of the mark. The film was also rubbish. I don't think anyone working on that movie had any idea what the film was suppose to be. However, I loved the score on CD.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand, Tyler's TMNT score is an absolute hoot! It might be one of the best things he has ever done (based solely on the album experience.)


Really? I both loved Now You See Me and thought the score worked fantastically within the movie. Still too early to tell if I am loving this TMNT score but the heavy percussion is leading me towards a big no.

I like Brian Tyler's music. I have listened to this score and I enjoy it. Mr Tyler is extremely talented, and he really seems to be a genuinely wonderful person. With that said, I have to agree with several of the other posts. Too much like Iron Man 3 and Thor The Dark World. Great stuff, but interchangeable. He gives the studio's what they want, but I believe he can reach higher and dig deeper.

Listening to this now and really enjoying it.

It's funny...I was listening to Empire Strikes Back this morning and remembering what a magnificent score that was on so many levels...

How times have changed with film scoring.

As I said, enjoying listening to TMNT. But will I be doing that in 30 years time?

It's almost as if you can line the film score classics up along with the rock classics.

Some will be played til the end of time. Others provide great entertainment at the time that they are released and then slowly fade into obscurity.

another score review -

Well , that guy sure is an interesting reviewer. Full of backhanded praise, though. I love how he goes on hilariously about the "flaws" in the score and "inexcusable" elements of the music.

Then again, in his review of The Hunt For Red October he says " I can see myself slipping this on if I'm really bored and want a little kick, as it's only 30 minutes, but I don't see a whole heap of replay value."

And he's 14 years old big grin Enthusiastic little cuss, at least .

-Turtles United
-Rise of the Four

Oh well, I am not going to go and see the movie, but I love what Brian Tyler composes. No CD, so I will miss out on it.
