I have to agree. When I listened to the Jurassic World soundtrack, I had to listen to it twice before the new themes could sink in. Here, I've listened to it five times since and I haven't taken a single note to memory that hasn't already been used previously. This score is just too generic. There's nothing that stands out at all, aside from pieces that are direct quotations of Brad Fiedel's work (the first section of "Griffith Park", or the whole of "Terminated").

THis is going to sound rather strange, but I don't think it's helped by the fact that the score isn't synthetic enough. T3's score wasn't synthetic at all. Elfman was on the right tracks, while Balfe's score is on a different track, but headed in the same direction. It's just not there.

I'm hoping that when the sessions leak, the listening experience will improve.

I was so impressed by the score initially (huge fan of the 90s synth scores from Hans (DOT, PH, RH, TR and esp PONR)....i love the analog string and saw wave sounds. This score FIT THE MOVIE PERFECTLY! I would love an expanded or complete score. One of my fav themes not on the CD is when the punks beat up Chappie, then it shows him on the railroad tracks disoriented, then walking up a hill over the city. It plays another time or two. The chord progression is superb! Thankfully, I recorded it from the end credits. One of my fav Hans & Co scores!

Incorrect. And if you don't hear his influence in Track #5, you are really missing something.

The problem is with this score, it sounds like it belongs more so in a Transformers film than in a Terminator one.

It's not terrible by any means but it's far from the amazing listening experience it should have been. And is terribly generic (although I doubt the film is any good to begin with). The best parts are Balfe quoting Fiedel obviously

Lorne's Terminator isn't a bad listening experience, not by a longshot. It's a work of a professional and has a lot going for it in many cues. But... it's also mostly generic as all hell. It could basically belong to any action-oriented movie of the past 15 years. I'll surely listen to it some more, but after 2 and a half listening sessions I can say that "Beyond: Two Souls" stays unconquered.

Every time I see a trailer for this movie I get annoyed, because the premise is so stupidly awesome and parts of it look really cool...but I just can't STAND Adam Sandler or pretty much anything he's associated with. Peter Dinklage must owe someone money or somethign.

Henry Jackman's a good choice for this, though, looking forward to hearing more Wreck-it Ralph 8-bit-orchestral-action fusion stuff.

Does anybody know when the CD version will be available? So far I can only find it as a download and there's no info anywhere about the CD release date. The only thing that indicates that probably will be a physical release as well is a game on the fan page where dedicated albums could be won.
