4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best film scores of the year 20 Jun 2008
By Randall - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
While it is true that this release is a CDR, those interested in the music and not the ingredients of the disc upon which it is burned or pressed will be very pleased with this soundtrack, which comes accompanied with a professionally printed tray label and booklet - and smashingly grand sound. Released by Marvel, it's as official a soundtrack as we're apt to get - and certainly as complete a one, with almost two hours of music (111.15 mins). How many other film scores get as much music made available coincidental with the film's release? Armstrong's main theme is terrific, with its repeated, pronounced X-strokes of violin, and his 3-note Hulk motif, itself a kind of swervy reflection of that main theme transposed to a sinewy violin figure wrapped in thick cords, entwining around and through the orchestra, embodying the growling tonality of the verdant beast's voice in those deep and substantial cello strains, echoed by a much higher reflective glinting of violins, all propelled by a driving pulse of strings and snarling horns. The score draws its relentless forward motion from these strokes of violins, driven by a recurring, low string ostinato. It's large and quick and powerful - an adroit embodiment of the green guy himself. Joe Harnell's poignant piano theme, "The Lonely Man," from the 1979 Incredible Hulk TV series, is nicely incorporated into the track "Bruce Goes Home." It's one of many affectionate nods to that influential show included in the new movie. The reawakened romance between Banner and Betty Ross (Liv Tyler) is characterized by a melancholy love theme, poignant strings and piano. I've found The Incredible Hulk to be a richly energetic and powerful orchestral score with effective electronic nuances built into its textures. Armstrong provides music that is both sensitive to the story's underlying drama and sustaining of the film's action set pieces. Hulk is melodically rich, provocatively vigorous, and thematically compelling, and is definitely one of the best scores of the year thus far.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't stop listening to this! 4 July 2008

Forget the format complaints. I too would have prefered a pressed CD. Big deal. I'm just glad that I have the 2 hours of this awesome music! Only Craig Armstrong can write frenetic and powerful music that is still so beautiful and listenable. Also check out "Elizabeth:The Golden Age"(my favorite score from 2007). This Hulk score is outrageously good. 5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars An epic score for an epic character 16 Dec 2008
By Ronault D. Trowbridge - Published on Amazon.com

Craig Armstrong deserves to win the Oscar for Incredible Hulk. The music in this film really captures the sadness of Bruce Banner's plight. I also love that Mr. Armstrong has included the classic "Lonely Man" theme from the TV series.

4.0 out of 5 stars What superhero scores should sound like... 21 Jun 2008
By William Smith - Published on Amazon.com
I've been a fan of Craig Armstrong since "Plunkett and Macleane" and his absolutely amazing "rescue" cue from that film. "The Incredible Hulk" is a worthy addition to his repertoire and stands out as one of the best modern superhero scores to date. It's action packed, tense, frenetic and somber and even has a snippet of the original Hulk TV theme!

On the technical side, I was also somewhat surprised to see the CDs are CD-Rs, but for someone who just loves the music, it didn't matter. It sounds perfectly fine to me. And if this is the beginning of a trend (releasing the FULL score, even on a CD-R) then I'll take it over a pressed, partial score CD any day.

This score is better than Iron Man, better than Fantastic Four, better even than Spiderman in my opinion and should be picked up regardless of the technology. Listen to it LOUD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Geat score! 27 Nov 2008
By Ronald M. Laflash - Published on Amazon.com

Listen,
Don't let the fact that these are Pro-made CD-Rs and not factory made CDs deter anyone from buying this item. The score is great, the price is great and the packaging is great.
