A Strong Soundtrack from a Unique Pairing

Who would have thought the pairing of Fast and Furious’ Brian Tyler and Tim Burton regular Danny Elfman would have made for something quite extraordinary?

For two composers so dissimilar in style, it’s remarkable this soundtrack feels very cohesive in structure. If you didn’t know who was credited with what track, you would never guess which track was Tyler’s and which was Elfman’s. In fact, it’s Elfman that gears himself towards Tyler’s style.

There are hints of Alan Silvestri’s awesome theme in tracks like ‘Heroes’ and ‘Outlook’, just to name a couple. But, it doesn’t sound like a repeat. Both Tyler and Elfman bring in new themes that are just as memorable to hum. Elfman’s new hybrid theme does a great job of mixing the old with the new. I would say there are hints of his old Batman themes in there. Of course, you’ll here Tyler’s previous themes for Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World in here as well. This gives the soundtrack a sense of connection with previous films.

Overall, the score is well-balanced with rousing action cues and poignant emotional moments. Putting Tyler and Elfman together, though weird, paid off in the end. Buy this soundtrack!

It’s good… but only because of Elfman

Looks like Danny did quite a bit of damage control. Tyler’s IM3 and Thor scores were good because the themes he created were distinct. This time around his tracks are generic. You could literally play them in any action movie and they would fit.

Fricking genius.

Danny Elfman's take on the Avenger's theme has been such a great listen. I am glad he was given the opportunity to bring some wonderful music to the table. Unfortunately, there is many tracked cues in the film (Silvestri's cues from the first film placed in this one) but it is still a great score. There are also a few missing cues that are in the film that I would love to have. One being the female vocals track nearing the end of the film. It is seriously beautiful. Very sad as well. I cannot wait to pick up this CD in mid May. I am sure you will not be disappointed with this score. Each Avenger has their own theme :)
