Composer John Powell elevates the tension he so dutifully created on 2004's Bourne Supremacy soundtrack for the third (and final?) chapter in the big screen adaptation of author Robert Ludlum's internationally lauded Jason Bourne series The Bourne Ultimatum. All of the deft melding of taut electronics and explosive orchestral release that made the previous installment the blueprint for the modern espionage score is utilized here, and while there is little in the way of any memorable new cues, the familiar staccato sounds that have accompanied Matt Damon's character throughout the series mimic the relentless pulse of the film and provides the listener with a much needed buoy amidst director Paul Greengrass' highly kinetic ocean of visual stimuli.
One of the best soundtracks ever
A movie that is very emotion driven and action paced needs a soundtrack like this. Powell does an exceptional job of creating haunting ballads that reflect Bourne's inner battles (Goa and New Memories), and also use intriguing spy scores to reflect the movement and tanacity of our hero (Nach Deutschland and To the Roof). What I like the best about this soundtrack is Powell's use of orchestral instrumentation with programed beats. It gives the sound a more spy feel with a classical touch, combining beats and the austere violins to heighten the mood when he is on the run or when he is reflecting on his ill-turned life. His theme with the basoon in Goa and New Memories makes you reflect on his inner pain. Atonement is the best way to finish off a soundtrack, when he finally makes up for the sin that he had done in the past, and gives you a sense of fulfillment for the soundtrack. The soundtrack brings up the mood for every scene, scenes of action, darkness, and ultimately reflection. Great for studying or even driving on the road, makes you feel like you also work for Treadstone.
This is a great album. John Powell varied it up a lot more than the first bourne soundtrack. The variations on the original theme are great. Great for studying.
If you loved the movie, you'll like this. 'Extreme Ways' is a great song, but iTunes needs to sell these individually.
