Fun to listen to
I'm a major soundtrack geek and a big fan of John Williams. This is much more light hearted than a typical Williams score. When I first watched the movie I didn't really like it much. But after seeing the movie a second time it started to grow on me. But I bought the album anyway because I liked the light hearted fun feel of it. After listening to almost the whole soundtrack I'm so glad I got it! It's wonderful. I think I actually prefer hearing the music appart from the movie than I did while watching. It's just so playful, like a mix of a all ages version of Indiana Jones with a fun cartoony feel to much of it. Five stars for sure.
Amazing score. JW does it again--I hear a lot of similarities in this soundtrack with his HP 3 soundtrack. "Presenting Bianca Castafiore" is actually Renee Fleming's interpretation of Charles Gounod's "Je Veux Vivre" from his opera "Romeo and Juliette," which I widh they gave credit it for, but still--Awesome soundtrack and awesome movie!!
Disappointing - Themes Lost in Incidental Music
I'm rating this on what I heard in the actual film because I did not like the music enough to buy the score.
This is the most disappointing John Williams score ever written. I love John Williams. He usually creates such beautiful, lush themes, even for adventure films like Indiana Jones. In my opinion, Indiana Jones and Star Wars suffered from clashing tones that were appropriate for action scenes in the films but not too pleasant to listen to. The main themes that were so catchy and wonderful saved the music to those films, however. But that did not happen with TinTin. There are themes in TinTin, but they are lost in the incidental music, which also has a ton of clashing tones. The music works for the film, but is boring to listen to (and kind of gives me a headache).
