I have been a fan of Brian Tyler's work for quite some time. The score for Final Destination 5 is a marked improvement on his previous efforts with The Final Destination. This time the music is more structured and not as messy. Tyler creates a quite menacing sound that borrows heavily from one of his best works, The Killing Room. I have not yet seen Final Destination 5 but the music Tyler has created has intrigued me to see how it fits the film. Another plus to this album is that Tyler has down-played the use of the Final Destination theme, which if we be honest, is rubbish.
Overall, a good solid score.
Death still sounds pretty good to me.
For a horror film this is an extremely consistent and enjoyable listening experience. It opens with a rock infused/catchy `Main Title' that is much more developed than anything you'd expect from a film franchise that's been around for a decade.
The opening bridge collapse in the film is the 6½ minute `Fates Bridge' which sounds epic. The majority of the score's tracks though, (`Repercussions', `Kill or be Killed', `Bludworth', `Recognition', `Mystery', `The Order of Death' and Plans Within Plans') are quieter piano led tracks that seem to emphasise death's subtle plans and the characters discovery of what's going on.
The eye laser surgery death scene in the film is given some standard horror orchestral string wailing and cymbal crashing in the second half of `Eye Can't See So Good' while the tense gymnastic death scene is treated to a brooding underplayed sound in `Bend Over Backwards.' Both are very effective in the film.
There's less emphasis on Shirley Walker's classic death theme for the FD franchise in this score but it's still heard at subtle points in the soundtrack. You can hear it in the opening of `Fates Bridge' but it's most notable at 9:16 in Death's Work (the longest track of the score.) I can understand while score fans are upset that Shirley's great theme isn't heard as much in FD5 but to be fair this film is shot in a much more epic style than previous entries and the score also needed a different sound to match. Furthermore Brian Tyler already payed great tribute to her theme previously in The Final Destination, (the fourth film.)
The score closes with a reprise of the Main Theme's bombastic sound in `Infinite Finale.'
I was expecting a horror score with FD5 but what I found was a drama score with suspense and action elements. I enjoyed the way Brian Tyler didn't just resort to horror music cliche's and instead crafted a constantly thematic score led mostly by piano with huge amounts of orchestra and a rocking main theme for good measure.
