Reminds me of the sweeping epic soundtracks of the good old days
Alan Silvestri has nailed the feeling and mood of this period film. Like Raiders, Star Wars, etc. this captures the essence of the character Captain America from WWII and feels like it's going to be a great ride when watching the film. Director Joe Johnson choose wisely when picking Silvestri for this soundtrack. Those of you who remember Johnson as the director of The Rocketeer will remember with fondness the beautiful score James Horner produced for that period film. This soundtrack will have a lasting effect as well for years to come. The theme simply evokes a proud feeling of patriotism. Well done score. Purchase with confidence!!
I was actually thoroughly surprised by this album. I've always been a fan of Alan Silvestri, probably my favorite composer next to Michael Giacchino, John Williams and John Morris. From Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, etc. Alan Silvestri has done great mood music, even for a person walking down an alley he can write something that's just so moody, comedic and...and...can't seem to describe it. Captain America was a great all American score, reminded me of Jerry Goldsmith's score for Soarin' Over California, it just captures the American spirit. I think the best theme on here has to be Captain America #1 and #25.
Grand, Fresh, Exciting, and Rousingly Patriotic
"Captain America: The First Avenger" is quite simply one of the greatest superhero films ever made. And it owes its greatness, at least in part, to the magnificent score that accompanies it. Crafted by veteran composer Alan Silvestri, it is beyond excellent: it is a score for the ages. Grand, fresh, exciting, and rousingly patriotic, it matches the high-spirited adventure of the movie with precision and breathtaking grandeur.
The album gets off to a subdued start with "Main Titles", which gives us a small taste of the titular character's theme: just enough to whet the appetite and no more. The pace quickens with "Training the Supersoldier", a short but impressive cue that coincides when the bootcamp training sequences in the film. "Howling Commando's Montage" is purely thrilling, followed closely by the equally exciting "Hydra Train" and "Motorcycle Mayhem". "This Is My Choice" and "Passage of Time" are lovely pieces marked by a sense of tragedy and loss, and ultimately, hope. Everything comes to a satisfying close with the "Captain America March", which fleshes out the main theme in all it's patriotic glory - I do not lie when I say this piece is every bit as memorable as John Williams' work for "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones". The album also includes a pleasant, 40s-styled ditty entitled "Star Spangled Man", written by Alan Menken. It differs greatly from Silvestri's score, but it's plenty fun to listen to all the same.
