Brian Tyler is a well-known composer for doing big action pieces and action-thrillers, including AVPR, Fast Five, and the video game Modern Warfare 3. With brake, Brian Tyler accomplished something different; a score that is both heart-pounding and emotionally gripping at the same time. If you watch the movie before listening to the music, you can pick out the moments when certain music is played, matching the terrifying ordeal Stephen Dorff's character goes through. Now, it's not an Award-winning soundtrack, but it sure as hell is a great one, echoing sentiments to Hans Zimmer and Ramin Djawadi. My personal favorite on the soundtrack is Coda, because it marks the mysterious end to the film, and does so with a dark track that foreshadows something truly awful to come.
Overall, Brake is a must-own for anyone who appreciates classical/instrumental music or movie scores/soundtracks. Brian Tyler should stick to this kind of stuff, and hopefully stays with the Fast & Furious series because Fast Five had great action-movie music
