    If you loved "Guardians of the Galaxy" in the theatre then this IS the album to purchase! The Deluxe Soundtrack is a two disc set that contains both the soundtrack (aka "Awesome Mix Tape vol 1") as well as Tyler Bates dramatic score. Rather than settle for one album or the other you can own both in one fell swoop for a terrific price. Disc 1: Awesome Mix Tape Vol 1 I don't need to say anymore. This is the album that most movie-goers are going to be familiar with. Songs like "Hooked on a Feeling", "Spirit in the Sky", and "Cherry Bomb" lit up theaters as part of the trailers and are joined by other great hits like "Come and Get Your Love" and "Escape". It's a great collection of songs from the 70's that proves that Peter Quill's mother had great taste in music. Never before has a soundtrack album been integrated so perfectly into a film! Disc 2: The Score by Tyler Bates. Remember "300", "Sucker Punch", and "Watchmen"? That was Tyler Bates. It's a solid score that bounces from dark and brooding to tonally light and comical and back again. Tracks like "Black Tears" bring the Guardians theme to the forefront in a way that makes you wish you were back in the theatre again, with a big tub of popcorn watching the crew of the Milano tear it up on the big screen. It's a subtle score in places but I've found that I listen to it as much as the Mix Tape!

    The soundtrack of "Guardians of the Galaxy" is one of my favorites in a long time, and the 2-Disc Deluxe Version is the one the buy. ***** DISC 1 - Awesome Mix Vol. 1 Disc One is the songs from the movie. All but one of them are featured in the film ("Spirit in the Sky" is not in the movie, although it was used in one of the trailers). Not only is the music good, but as you know if you've seen the film, the mixtape serves a significant narrative purpose. The songs here are presented as much more than just background music - these songs are important to the main character. My understanding is that the director even played the songs on set to help the cast understand the tone he was going for. Favorite Tracks [01] Hooked on a Feeling [03] Spirit in the Sky [08] Come and Get Your Love [12] Ain't No Mountain High Enough ***** DISC 2 - Original Score by Tyler Bates The original score for the film is certainly overshadowed by the songs in the movie. But Tyler Bates is very a talented composer, and he delivers an emotional underscore here that serves the story well. It's not as compelling to listen to on it's own as disc one of this album, but there are some interesting tracks that I've found myself revisiting. Favorite Tracks [12] Sanctuary [20] Sacrifice [22] The Ballad of the Nova Corps. [26] Groot Cocoon Please visit FilmMusicFan.com for more soundtrack reviews.

    What a way to celebrate the music from Guardians of the Galaxy by releasing this deluxe version. The music from the film is so important to the story and it's a great way to put you right back in the action after you've watched the film. The score is wonderful and gives a great balance to the songs in the film. Tyler Bates is no stranger to comic book film scores. He has also has done The Watchmen score as well. You get the best of both worlds in this deluxe edition. Usually you have to purchase the score separate from the soundtrack but thanks to this deluxe edition you get both for a great price. What a great collection of tracks that normally would sound weird together but because each song has meaning in the film it draws you right to that scene you remember it from. I can't wait for Awesome Mix Volume 2!

    I purchased the soundtrack to Guardians of the Galaxy right after I saw the movie. I did enjoy the movie very much, and a great deal of that enjoyment came from the use of classic rock songs to drive some plot points. The orchestral score is wonderful as well with much passion, and at appropriate moments, sorrow and despair. The orchestrated score is also very dynamic with soft to loud passages, bright to warm melodies, and deliberate to quickening paces. Both the classic rock and orchestrations will shine on a good quality audio system. I highly recommend it.

    Perfect accompaniment to the blockbuster movie of the summer! James Gunn, director of the Marvel Studios summer smash Guardians of the Galaxy hand picked these tracks to enhance the screenplay of the movie...I grew up listening to all these classic tracks and reading Marvel Comic Books so it really brings back some fantastic memories for me. Even the younger generation is on board with this classic selection, a twenty-something youth I was talking to had to run out to buy this soundtrack after seeing the GOG movie! Highly recommended!

    I Loved the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, but I am deeply in Love with the Movie Soundtrack that has a long list of really wonderful 70's hit music and you must buy the deluxe version for the extra cd score. I have purchased more for friends and family. The regular Movie soundtrack cd has a great picture of a cassette tape on the cover (for those who can remember) that reads Awesome Mix Vol. 1 and it is an AWESOME MIX of music!

    This version of the soundtrack is well worth it. Not only does it have all of the songs from the Awesome Mix tape Vol 1 in the movie, it has "Spirit in the Sky" which was cut from the final version of the film. It also contains a 2nd disc with the full musical score. A value for sure. This way you get the music that adds to the overall lightheartedness of the story as well as the dramatic score drives the more dramatic parts.

    Great 'Old School' music to complement / accompany a Great Movie! I have to say, I don't know what inspired them to use those songs for this sci-fi / futuristic / action / drama / comedy movie (by Marvel) but it totally works!!! That's why I had to purchase the 'deluxe' edition soundtrack so I have all the songs and scores of this fantastic movie. Can't wait for the movie to come out on Blu-Ray 3D!!
