Have to agree with you here. The action music, for the most part, is pretty fun when Junkie lets loose with the electronics (Maximum Effort, Twelve Bullets, Watership Down).

Junkie's strength definitely lies in his themes, but utilizing them is definitely not his strong suit. I would say half of the music functions well, while the rest kinda falls flat.

The 80's style synth works amazing but is overshadowed by the Mad Max drums and strings.<br><br>Imo, JXL needs to leave his comfort zone and write for dramatic films. His string writing is some of the best out there, and his action music works when he doesn't fall into the same routine drums and pounding.Yeah well I just got through my first listen and I am kind of disappointed too... I feel like Maximum Effort and Twelve Bullets are the main two stand-out action tracks, but they're on the very short side and did not blow me away like Blood Bag, Brothers in Arms, Chapter Doof, The Bog, go on and on... Maybe Man in a Red Suit can be up there too, but honestly I did not hear a lot of memorable tracks first time round... Might change obviously, just my initial reaction. However, I would have preferred to have a lot more music from Junkie and less Tarantino-like 'soundtrack'. I mean, I don't know how the existing songs play out in the film as I haven't seen it yet, but I could have done without some of those songs. And I don't know if it's my headophones (I hope not :) ) but it sounds like the album is mastered too loud so sometimes there is clearly some distortion/clipping going on. Could be intentional but it kind of starts to bother me. I'm going to try some other sound systems to verify this.in "Is She With You?" at around 2:30, does anyone hear similarities to The Dark Knight trilogy music?This is a one star score... So disappointing :(I went to his first concert a year and half ago in London and it was amazing. i wish to see him playing in Dubai or EGYPT under the pyramids.<br>i will definitely attend either the Dublin or the Vienna one.

Because the OST is ready for a while, and WaterTower was probably stocking its files online on the sourcecode of the website or something, and someone found the correct address to download them...

There's ALWAYS someone smarter...

I don't have it, though ! I'd like to ! But yeah the track is real. lol

Hybrid, do you say that because you THINK it is legit, or because someone official confirmed it to you? In the latter case, how is it even possible that the OST leaked so long before the release? Did you get any explanation?

The OST may not be available however that doesn't mean it's not registered with the RIAA. Use your brain.

It's exactly the same duration on the album. Maybe it's not a reason but it doesn't look like a fake. It might be.

"Shazam and YouTube confirmed its legit."

How would they know it's legit if the OST isn't even available?

Considering USA can't view the leaked track due to copyright claims, I'm going to say it's a legit track.

Of course it's legit. Why are people still doubting it. Shazam and YouTube confirmed its legit.

I see now that on IMDB pro are listed Brian Tyler and John Paesano as well... I love Brian Tyler but I think it is not going to happen and Desplat will do it. Still interresting idea I must say. Thank you for replying Hybrid :-)

Hey Hybrid, on IMDB Junkie is listed as composer of Godzilla 2 for 2018, is it mistake or will he score it? I thought that Edwards composer is Alexandre Desplat. Still it would be cool to see Tom create score for King of the Monsters, but I think it is not true.

Wait a second, is it just me or does anyone else find the theme is somehow similar to Elliot Goldenthal's Batman?

It's pretty funny how suddenly everyone reacts while no one gave a shit this theme was basically shown 10 months ago ! lol

Have to agree; this track (at least the sample we heard) is a bit generic. I don't mind it so much on its own terms, but I hope it's not representative of what the full Batman theme will sound like. It's certainly not going to convert the anti-RCP crowd; if anything it will just confirm them that Zimmer and Holkenborg is a staid collaboration.

For all the criticism leveled at Zimmer's work on Batman and Superman, at least there was a good balance of soaring, heroic themes and moody, reflective pieces alongside the pounding action cues. Hopefully the whole score for BvS demonstrates more variety than what we've gotten so far.

Just my two cents.

But for what it's worth, I'm enjoying his Deadpool score immensely.

Batman is a revenge drama! That's the idea behind the character; it's what drives him.

That sounds super generic. Did junkie even try? Sorry, but this sounds more suited for a revenge drama rather than Batman.

Really? I think it kinda sounds like some of the percussion heard in Tom's Point Break suite. But that's just me.

I hope they'll release a few full tracks like they did with MoS. Snippets are too frustrating!
