To those looking for the songs with words...
You asinine imbeciles! Don't you realize that this is the "Score" ? Not the Compilation for the movie. Those can be found elsewhere in the store. Don't tarnish a good Powell feature simply because you didn't have enough sense to say "Ohh, these are the songs that helped craft the moods in the movie, not the songs featured throughout the movie by other artists." I mean, if you listen to a few of these, you'll immediately understand that. Don't give the soundtrack a low rating, just go and find your silly little songs. Now, I agree with the other guy, Powell hasn't been doing his best letely. The Bourne Trilogy was very well composed, not overly techno like most thrillers usually do. However, while not fudging the music in terms of balance here, Powell lacks the inspiration and the depth of his other works. This is more of an entry-level soundtrack, to be expected of say, Trevor Morris. It is a fine album, but not Powell's best.
Good, but not Powell's best stuff
Maybe I'm being too judgmental about Powell's recent scores, but I tend to hold everything up against his Bourne trilogy work, and that's a tough act to follow. But while this score is certainly solid as a standalone work, and probably works well with the film, ultimately it doesn't engage my ears enough to listen to it on repeat. Still, I love that he's able to add texture and movement to sections that another composer might leave ploddingly slow, so he gets bonus points for adding interest!
So, what's interesting about this is that people are obviously upset that this isn't a compilation of music from the movie, but the score from the film. Now, with that being said quit referring to "pop music" as "real music". Every single pop song from the past 50 years is based around the same sort of musical progression, therefore invalidating the fact that it is "real" music. Just because it has words, and makes your head nod, does not make it REAL music. Composers, REAL musicians, work their music from the beginning. They have knowledge of instruements, ranges, meters, dramatic interpretation, actual compositional skills, and the ability to make you feel simply through the use of instruments. THESE people are REAL musicians who create REAL music. Not pop artists. I get it, you're upset that this album doesn't have your favorite song from the movie on it, but DON'T give it a bad review based on that. Go off to the music store and find a copy if these songs on other albums. Don't get me wrong, I like pop music as much as the next guy, but when you negatively rate a piece of art from an artist simply because it doesn't feature songs with words, you're asinine.
