Some spoilers if you haven't seen the series.

Ramin Djawadi never fails to deliver on the Game of Thrones soundtracks and this one is no exception.

From the epic opening titles to the beautiful 'The Children,' this score is a masterclass in how to write music that perfectly complements a series and evokes powerful images when listened to as a stand-alone.

Naturally, as this is the fourth soundtrack in a series of soundtracks, there is repetition. Just as various characters, houses and places appear repeatedly in the show, so do their themes. It is enjoyable to listen to the variations on these themes and listen to how Djawadi uses them. One of the clearest examples of this is in 'Two Swords,' which wreathes the Lannister 'Rains of Castamere' and the Stark theme together as the Lannisters enjoy their triumph at the beginning of the series.

Daenerys' themes have always been a personal favourite with their exotic nature fitting perfectly with her tale of the unfamiliar, including dragons, harpies and the Unsullied. The one disappointment on this album is that the theme used when she enters Mereen, a sort of reworking of season three's 'Mhysa,' is not included.

A brief summary of tracks-

Main Titles- 10/10. The same as every other series, so if you are just downloading individual tracks, it's not necessarily worth buying again. We know it's perfect, though.

The Rains of Castamere- 7/10. Possibly the most over played song in Westeros, this is the version shown in episode 2, 'The Lion and the Rose.' Enjoyable, but I personally enjoyed season three's epic orchestral 'A Lannister Always Pays His Debts' more than this more dirge like version. However, it was appropriate, given what happened in that episode!

4.0 out of 5 stars Game of Thrones: Season 4 - Original Soundtrack 18 Jun 2014
By JMM - Published on Amazon.com
One of the best aspects of the HBO series "Game of Thrones" is the music. Composer Ramin Djawadi is doing great work in both film and television, and returns to compose the score for Season 4 of the show. Once again, the music is masterful - it works within the series, but it's also pleasant to listen to on its own.

Ever since the first season, the Main Theme for "Game of Thrones" has been one of my favorite TV themes - and its a highlight of this album. There is a lot of diversity on this soundtrack; a good balance of intensity and emotion.

Given that this is the show's fourth season, Djawadi has a lot of existing material to pull from - and he reuses a few of the major themes quite often. The result is that the album is a bit repetitive (particularly if you have listened to the previous albums). This isn't necessarily bad in all cases - in fact, sometimes I enjoy hearing themes that I know resurface later in the album.

One thing I've come to anticipate is the final track that closes out the last episode. In Season 2, it was "Mother of Dragons", which i did not think could be improved upon... but then in Season 3 the track "Mhysa" actually topped it. Well, Season 4's final track "The Children" is a slight disappointment to me personally - although just as with the previous albums, the more I hear it the more I may come to appreciate it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A huge step forward 17 Jun 2014
By Sean Stangland - Published on Amazon.com

My first experience with Ramin Djawadi was the embarrassing, single-minded guitar "score" for the original "Iron Man." Just six years later, he's crafted a score for 10 hours of television that rivals anything I've heard at the movie theater in the past three or four years.

Djawadi's thunderous, iconic main theme is repurposed here to accent the chaotic music of the wildlings, and given a children's choir treatment in the cues that closed out the season, "You Are No Son of Mine" and "The Children." Any similarities to Howard Shore's "LOTR" scores in those cues are welcome — the Season 4 finale contained moments of fantasy and wonder that seem more suited to JRR than GRRM.

Happily, Djawadi is not content to just hammer us over and over again with his main theme, and the fresh material is startling and beautiful. I haven't taken notice of a TV show's music like this since Michael Giacchino's "Lost"; can Djawadi and "Thrones" some day equal that show's emotionally devastating melodies? Based on the strength of this outing, I don't see why not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Djawadi's Score Continues To Grow And Become The True Backbone Of The Series 17 July 2014
By Kaya Savas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ramin Djawadi’s Game Of Thrones score has blossomed from being used sparingly to add a little flair, to now being one of the most central dramatic tools of the show. In fact, for the first two seasons I was flat-out frustrated at the lack of score in the series. This was a show that demanded a prominent score, and finally in season 3 the show began to rely on Ramin for some support. The music became noticeable beyond its world famous theme. Dramatic arcs became prominent and the world became fleshed out thanks to the score. The characters still remain to a degree untouched by the score, and left to the actors to really make a mark. However, with so many characters that seems to be the logical choice. Season 4 hits high marks all around musically as the main title theme becomes an anchoring theme in the body of the score, and the end result is some of Ramin’s most impressive scoring to date.

Game Of Thrones’ season 4 arcs became really separated amongst the characters, and the actors did an amazing job playing out their journeys. Musically, Djawadi has done a fantastic job giving each journey a distinct sound. I wouldn’t call the music thematic in terms of the characters, but more so like each journey has its own sound. You can tell when we’re listing to a Daenerys plot point or something happening revolving around John Snow or at The Wall. Within all these story lines we are finally able to get some wonderful emotional beats. The music truly pulls you into the narrative instead of dialogue being separated by nothing but silence. One of my favorite recurring motif’s is the one that plays right before a major death/deaths. I first noticed it diegetically in season 3 before the red wedding. The band was playing the tune at the wedding, and I’ve noticed that foreboding tune pop up again before Joffrey’s death, and a few other notable times. It made that transfer from diegetic to non-diegetic quite nicely and can be heard in the track “Two Swords” around the 48-second mark. This season also saw some impressive action scoring from Djawadi who was finally able to show a little bit of grit. Musically thus far the score has kept a sense of brooding elegance, but we’ve finally got some gritty music that gives the score some interesting new textures. The best part is that Djawadi never shy’s away from using his main title theme within the body of the score, and it does make a few appearances. Usually shows will keep the main title theme completely separate, which is a shame when it really is the iconic identifier that becomes the heart of a series. Thankfully, Djawadi finds some wonderful ways to incorporate it into the series, and it almost becomes like the James Bond theme. The theme is never overused, but you can’t help but react to it emotionally when it does appear. The whole season is an amazing package and saw the series hit all of its creative strides.

Ramin Djawadi’s music has become one of the most iconic TV scores in the history of the medium. His main title theme has been covered and re-arranged in so many ways all over the internet that it truly speaks to the power of the show’s musical DNA. The score has become supremely effective in its 4th season, and really matches the effect it had in the past season. There are still some issues when it comes to the fluidity and connective flow of the music, but I think trying to make a weaving score for a show like Game Of Thrones would prove difficult. I can only hope the music becomes even more prominent and relied on in the seasons to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic... BUT... 12 July 2014
By Rogue - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I almost gave this 4 stars, not because the quality or songs are just "OK," but because this album runs at almost exactly 60 minutes, short of what a full CD can actually hold. I would have gladly bought a 2-disc version at a slightly higher price point. I found some cues to be sorely missed. In particular, the music from the end of Tyrion's trial along with the end credits rendition of "The Rains of Castamere." Also the "source music," such as "The Bear and the Maiden Fair" instrumental that's played during the Purple Wedding feast. Another thing is that the music cues are out of order. "You Are No Son of Mine" ought to be the second to last track, and "Two Swords" could have been placed before the main theme, for example. Having said that, I do hope we get more (or perhaps all) of the music in additional sets sometime in the future.

Anyways the music presented on this release is fantastic! From emotional and sweeping (can't get enough of that Stark / "North" theme) to bombastic (the music of the Wildlings and the Thenns). One of my favorite pieces from this season is thankfully included, "Three Eyed Raven," which is from the finale episode. That entire scene was fantastic, the creepy atmosphere enhanced by ambient music. I love to crank the volume when that track plays.

Recommended for sure, especially at ten bucks! If we buy it, they will keep releasing it!
