One of the strongest elements of the Elysium is its soundtrack. I was so impressed with this powerful music that I've had to purchase it immediately after I've watched the movie. I was even more surprised when I've discovered that Ryan Amon, the composer, never has done anything before Elysium and it is in fact his debut. He has created something between the best efforts of Hans Zimmer (Inception, The Last Samurai) and Bear McCreary's Battlestar Galactica. I believe we are witnessing the rise of the star who can reach level and quality of Hans Zimmer. At the same time it is really unfair to call Amon a "new Zimmer" as his score is so original and unique. One of the reviewer above called this soundtrack "powerful" and I think that is the best description you can give to this masterpiece. One of the best soundtracks ever and surely on top of the list of albums I've purchased in 2013.

The "Elysium" soundtrack is a satisfying experience. The score is a blend of orchestration and synthesizers. Listening to the music, you are transported to another world - I think this score will work very well within the context of the movie.

I think this score is a fine first effort for up-and-coming composer Ryan Amon, and hopefully he gets to score more feature films in the future. After a bit of research, it seems as though Amon's background is in writing music for movie trailers. I'd imagine that composing for trailers is not too different from scoring a big summer movie - in both cases, you typically want to give the music an epic quality that makes an impact on the audience.

The following is a quote from a piece in The Hollywood Reporter, regarding Amon's working relationship with "Elysium" director Neill Blomkamp:
<< The director had him compose much of the music before seeing the film -- replicating Amon's process for scoring trailers, which are usually not prepared for composers beforehand. "He didn't want me to know what was going on. He wanted me to use my imagination," Amon said. >>

Composer Ryan Amon, a name I must confess I have never heard before has burst on to the scene with his score to the last summer blockbuster of 2013, Elysium. The score uses mainly the orchestra and a whole host of electronics and synths. There's some epic percussive sections at points, and occasional uses of choir and vocal soloists. This is one of the best, if not the best summer score of 2013 in my opinion.

The album runs at just over 70 minutes and has 29 tracks so forgive me for not going into every track in depth. The album is largely comprised of action tracks, some of my favourites were the outstanding "You Have No Idea" (Track 12) . There are nods to the Zimmer school of action scoring, "Zero Injuries Sustained" (Track 10) sounds like something you would have heard off any of Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy. "Heading to Elysium" (Track 18) is fantastic and as it heads towards the climax theres some great string writing and light backing from the choir. There is some dull material present - "Darkness" (Track 5) has getting on for 4 minutes of repetitive percussion loops and ambient textures for pretty much the whole track, the same can be said of "The Raven" (Track 13). There are also some rather unpleasant sounding grinding synths in "A Political Sickness", and whilst it might work in the film, on album it doesn't make for a good listen.

This album has one of the strongest ends to a score album that I can remember for some time. The final three tracks that close the album, "Breaking a Promise" (Track 27), "Elysium" (Track 28) and "New Heaven, New Earth" are sensational, and of a generally slower pace than the preceding tracks, and was a welcome change of pace and style.

I seem to be in the minority, I did not like this movie maybe it was the high expectations, but I didn't enjoy it. However, I was blown away with Ryan Amon's score, I can listen to it for days and not get bored. My favourite track is titled "You have no idea".

I would highly recommend any movie score fans to purchase this even if you haven't watched the movie, it definitely needs to be added to your collection. I look forward to hearing more from Ryan Amon in the future.
