That cover is hideous

It's certainly better than the Varese cover

NOTHING is better than Enterprise porn.

Looks like Universal Records is releasing the OST in Japan instead of Varese Sarabande!

Did Varese not purchase worldwide rights?

Same tracklist, but different cover:

Will the mastering be any different?

Oddly the digital release in Japan was still on Varese....

I kinda like the cover. If I didn't have the Varese edition, I would go for this one.

Odd that the Japanese cover has the word "Beyond" in English, but not "Star Trek".

Could be similar to how US stuff had "Star Trek Beyond Beyond," with one of the Beyonds stylized.

That score is just beyond, beyond beyond ....

Did anyone notice that the Enterprise on this cover is from Star Trek (2009), without the changes made for Beyond (like the back-swept nacelles)?

I saw all the activity in this thread and thought, maybe, that there was an announcement about an expanded release already. Alas, no. Yes, I realize it is waaaaaaaay too early.

I felt that the orchestrations in this score are the best Giacchino has done so far in his work for Star Trek. However, the score plays a bit anticlimactic on album. I still really enjoyed it despite that.

Since this thread has been reactivated.....
Mixed feelings about this one. Movie-wise, "Into Darkness", for all its faults (the particularly unforgivable one of leaning way too much on WOK in its final third) was raising interesting questions and had great villains.

Here the storyline is really thin, weak as an action picture and even more so as a Star Trek film. The villain is a well... a generic villain that is a waste of Idris Elba's charisma - and can these movies change the bad guy motivation for once?

Sure, the cast is still great and generate some sparks here and there, but the new Jaylah character while kicking ass brings virtually nothing to the table.

This new series always had kind of too much action (at least for me), but it was even more apparent here as this movie seem to handle them as genre requirements with little suspense or originality, particularly boring as they pile up one after the other near the end.

And as bombastic action is not Giacchino's forte imho, the score was often a tedious experience for me - effective in the (noisy) context but not very interesting music on disc.
Too bad because that Yorktown theme is rather good, and as usual the quieter parts are the best - like the piano rendition of the main theme, and I have never been a fan of that main theme. Overall, the least interesting Giacchino Trek score for me.

I don't like the Japanese poster art but is it a painted poster for a major motion picture? I thought these had disappeared since Struzan's "Indy IV" poster.

FYI: Michael Giacchino's Star Trek concert suite has been newly recorded for our World Soundtrack Awards album, recently released and available here:

This is the complete suite that was performed at his anniversary concert at the Royal Albert Hall, containing music from all three of his Star Trek scores.
