Great Soundtrack! Posted by: from: Detroit, Mi on I was pleasantly surprised that this soundtrack was so good! Usually, they have a lot of classical music (not that there's anything wrong with that genre at all) and not much more, This was a different, it had songs from the actual movie. It was on sale also, I'm happy!

Avengers: Age of Ultron - Original Soundtrack Posted by: from: on Marvel music is at its best when there is a memorable theme in play. Many film scores have gotten away from using such themes, instead opting for music to simply set the mood in the background. But these are superheroes we’re talking about, they deserve a theme – and a hummable one at that. This is where “Age of Ultron” disappoints on some level: the lack of memorable themes. There are plenty of rousing action cues that will no doubt play well to picture, but that’s not enough to create a pleasant listening experience. To be clear, I like most of the album - I just don't think it's quite as good as the first "Avengers" score by Alan Silvestri. I wonder why Marvel and/or director Joss Whedon did not get Silvestri back for the sequel (especially because it's my understanding that Silvestri's music is re-used quite substantially in "Age of Ultron") - perhaps the composer did not wish to return or had another commitment. Whatever the case may be, he was "replaced" by two capable composers in Brian Tyler and Danny Elfman. Brian Tyler is Marvel's go-to guy, having scored two Phase 2 films and composed the new Marvel fanfare that plays over their logo. So it's no surprise that he landed this assignment. Danny Elfman, on the other hand, was brought on late in the process. I would've guessed he contributed just a small portion of additional music, but in fact he is credited for around 30% of the album (including some key pieces). As you probably know, Elfman has a long history w/ superheroes ("Batman", "Hellboy", Ang Lee's "Hulk", and Raimi's first two "Spider-Man" movies). So two experienced composers are at work here, and yet none of the new material is as good as the original Avengers theme by Silvestri. Now, the good news is that Tyler and Elfman do pay homage to Silvestri's work - you can hear the Avengers theme present in "Heroes" [Track 2], "The Battle" [18], and "Outlook" [26]. They also weave other existing themes into the "Age of Ultron" score. Here are just a few examples I picked up on (and hope to find more once I give the album another listen): Track 3 "Rise Together" -- Tyler's theme for "Iron Man 3" appears briefly @ approx. 2:00. Track 15 "Inevitability/One Good Eye" -- a tinge of the Black Widow theme @ 2:00; "Iron Man 3" theme @ around 2:30. This re-purposing of old themes is something that really hadn't been done in Marvel films until now. I like it a lot as a creative choice and from a story perspective -- it preserves the characters' past musical identities and helps build continuity/cohesiveness (which is what I assume Marvel is going for at this point). So overall, I enjoyed this score to a limited extent. I appreciate that the composers tried to build from the original "Avengers" soundtrack, but they were ultimately unsuccessful in surpassing the first film's score. This was one of my most anticipated soundtracks of the summer, and as such I am left slightly disappointed. But there's no doubt that there are moments of greatness in the score - a few of my favorites are listed below. Definitely worth a listen if you have enjoyed past Marvel soundtracks or if you are an Avengers fan.
