Soundtrack Reviews

FilmMusicReviews_square_picIt’s Labour Day Monday, and before heading off to work (if it sounds like a contradiction, it is), I’ve uploaded a trio of soundtrack reviews, with another set to follow probably in the next day or two.

There’s also a lot of score reviews that I’ve meant to port over after their initial appearance in Rue Morgue magazine, plus a few articles and interviews that were on their prior blog site.

This review set features Timo Chen’s beautiful Advantageous (from Good Neighbors Media), and John Paesano’s The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials and Marco Beltrami &  Philip Glass’ Fantastic Four (both albums from Sony).

Yes, Beltrami and Philip Glass have collaborated on a score. It’s initially fun to play Spot the Style, but the score does settle into a design that works quite well, and one gets a sense both composers had fun tackling a comic book flick with a sound that’s part classical, modern, and minimalist.
