I find the lack of a comma disturbing.

It should be in a boxset with Two Weeks Notice (missing the apostrophe) and Who Framed Roger Rabbit (missing the question mark).

Powell posted the Mondo link for the score LP on Facebook.

They also list the score CD there, and they say Watertower will not be releasing it until November. frown

Saw the film tonight. Thought it was surprising;y effective, especially the final half hour or so.

The score is mostly moody and atmospheric, most of the film is dominated by well-chosen period pop songs.

Powell's big 8-minute cue for the finale will be a highlight of the album, gonna listen to it tonight. smile

I also saw this tonight.Very good, interesting film, like a 2hr Twilight Zone. There are some holes & perhaps missing scenes, but overall if you like Peele's recent horror/thriller/TZ films, it seems to fit in that stable.

Excellent use of songs, well chosen - bogus only 13 are on the album out of 20, 25?

Powell's score is quite good, unique. I run the 'to buy or not to buy?' meter on every film. First half- relief, I'll save $31.

The second half however incorporates some terrific female vocalizations, ensemble & solo, all seemingly manipulated. Excellent mix really features this aspect often. I was won over (and $31 poorer...) by this point. There is a short, cool panicky string cue for a scene where a character discovers a file...I hope it's present? Call back to short, panicky Goldsmith thriller writing.

The sole action cue, Victory Chase, sealed it. Perhaps a bit out of place for this film, it's a wild ride of rattling, clicky clacky aggressive percussion, well mixed, that is like a farewell blast of ideas from the Bourne films.

Though the score didn't do that much for me, it was nice to see the credit "Music Composed and Conducted By," which I suspect is pretty rare these days, at least in American films.

I can't quite tell if Mondo is the sole distributor of the upcoming physical CD, or if it will be available elsewhere (Amazon, etc).

I can't quite tell if Mondo is the sole distributor of the upcoming physical CD, or if it will be available elsewhere (Amazon, etc). It's from WaterTower, so it probably will be available elsewhere.... but assume Mondo's the exclusive distributor, just to avoid disappointment.

Thanks, Jason. That's terrific. A 'must buy' for me.

I wasn't a fan of the film, but Powell's score really had some standout moments and helped the film quite a bit. This chase cue is terrific with some amazing sound design.

BTW, we have an answer on the CD for the score album.

It's being released by Mondo, but it's not exclusive to their own website. Other retailers are carrying it too.

Here's the Amazon link:

CD release is January 27.

Price is high, $25.98, it's definitely being marketed as a boutique label item. Still cheaper than the LP, however, which is $47.98:

Mondo is also releasing a separate soundtrack album that day, on both CD and LP, containing the pop songs. Be sure you don't order the wrong album. Luckily, they have entirely different covers.

With this title and THE RINGS OF POWER CD, it does seem that Mondo appear to get an exclusive 2-3 month window for purchase (which is quite expensive if you live outside the USA).

Thankfully, I'm not after this score, but waiting for TROP has been a pain, listening via YouTube and Spotify.

Now, if that ain't a First World Problem, I don't know what is wink

Mondo ? Well since the Rings Of Power CD release is apparently lost somewhere in Mordor, with fewer score tracks than when I ordered it...not really too pumped for them.

The score's FYC album is streaming, it's identical to the OST album though
