Ramin Djawadi has woven his scores for HBO’s hit Game of Thrones fantasy series into one of TV's grandest musical tapestries, translating such ideas as “honor” and “conspiracy” into recurring musical motifs, while pondering: What is the sound of dragon eggs hatching? But hold the Celtic influences, please. “As soon as it goes into that—I don’t want to say cliché—but that folky sound, the producers and I always said, 'Let’s not get too far down that road,'” Djawadi confides. His sensibilities were molded by a boyhood love of Elmer Bernstein’s landmark Magnificent Seven score. The composer says he treats each season as “a 10-hour movie,” a musical gambit that lets familiar themes continually interact and evolve. Season Four’s most striking musical redux is Sigur Rós’ haunting rendition of the recurring song “The Rains of Castamere,” with lyrics by series creator George R.R. Martin. (It was previously performed by The National during Season Two.)
More great music....
Another great collection of music from one of the top shows on television. Many well established themes are back along with some new ones, including the harsh and driving theme to the Thenns and the bombastic attack on the wall. Several cues are standouts, namely "You are no son of mine" and "The Children", both taken from the season four finale. My only (minor) complaint is the lack of the theme music for Oberlyn Martell's character. Other than that, a solid release capturing the moods and excitment of this season's outstanding collection of episodes.
Excellent, but also incomplete.
Some of the tracks, like "Breaker of Chains, "The Children," and more, are simply magical. However, I feel that half the album is music from the battle on the Wall or related to that storyline. The variety could've been better. I like some of the tracks, they're great, but because of an abundance of battle themes, the album excluded some pieces which were heard in season 4. Where is the track that plays at the end of the episode "Two Swords?" That piece was popular on YouTube and very beautifully composed as a variation of the main title and "Valar Morghulis" from the season 2 soundtrack, but it's not inside any of the tracks on the album or anywhere at all. The soundtrack could have been much better, but I'm giving it five stars because the 3/4s of the soundtrack that did go right, was amazing. Ramin Djawadi has yet again composed some classic tracks which will be heard again and again for years to come. Although I am dissapointed that the soundtrack is incomplete, I am also throroughly satisfied with what is on it already too.
Very good,but incomplete.
Amazing album! I bought it to hear the track from the mountain and the viper fight. It just wasn't there. That was a letdown.
