Like the 2006 score The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, Marco Beltrami's previous foray into the Western genre, 3:10 to Yuma impresses the composer's unique stamp on the classic musical archetypes pioneered by Ennio Morricone and others — despite familiar ingredients like electric guitar, mandolin, barroom piano, and brass band flourishes, the music deftly avoids cliché thanks to some intriguing electronic elements, samples, and other contemporary effects. But while the dusty, slap-leather grit of the arrangements further underscores the score's roots in Western traditions, Beltrami's taut, propulsive melodies are very much a reflection of the modern-day action thriller. The music is suspenseful to the point of suffocation, with none of the spaciousness and atmosphere that signify Morricone at his own finest.
Excellent score that stands alone and serves as a companion
3:10 to Yuma is a film I've been excited about for a very long time. There's not been a good western film in about ten years or so, and this remake of the Ford classic, along with The Assasination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, are two film that have been recievign enoguh praise to signal that after all these years, the western has returned. The wondeful score for 3:10 to Yuma is very listenable on its own, but also serves as a great companion to the film, much like the score to Lord of War. Though a little repetitive at time in the leitmotifs, there is no arguing that Marco Beltrami's composition is superb. One thing I felt was missing from the overall score was a stronger, Ennico Morrincone-like theme. There are many lietmotifs and such throughout, yet no strong, outstanding theme that lets you know when a gunfight is about to start, or when the bad guy or hero is finding themselves in their finest hour. This was the factor really that bothered me as I listened, being a huge fan of the old spaghetti westerns, each having its own instantly recognizable theme, i.e., The Good The Bad and The Ugly, The Magnificent Seven, etc. The strongest theme occurs in the beginning of the Track 8: Chinese Democracy This is truly a great score and anyone who enjoys westerns and their music should definitely find this a real treat and a must-have for fans of the genre, or film scores in general.
Excellent score for an Excellent film
This score is a perfect match for this fantastic film. Beltrami did a magnificent job capturing all the emotion of the characters, the tension, and the excitement of the film. This reminds me of classic Ennio western sound. HIGHLY RECOMMEND SEEING THIS FILM AND ADDING THE SCORE TO YOUR COLLECTION!
Good, But Not Exactly Great...
It's not exciting enough, nor does it cause any reason for it to inspire me. It's kind of a boring score, but that doesn't mean it's not good. It just lacks the neccessities of being great. Some tracks are okay -- the popular ones -- but overall, it didn't deserve the Academy Award nod. Buy this score.
