Hans Zimmer has been handed the baton for the new Man of Steel film, following on from the mighty John Williams and John Ottman's rather excellent score for the failed 2006 reboot Superman Returns. Let's get this out the way at the start - if you are a fan of the music Williams wrote for the original films, stay well away from this release. This soundtrack is firmly in the camp of 21st Century music, and the more modern sound will not be to everyone's taste.

I won't go into every track on the albums (see lower down for the different versions). The softer piano theme for Clark Kent is extremely effective, and I would say stronger than some of the more action based material. The highlights are the brilliant "This Is Clark Kent" (Track 14) and "Sent Here For A Reason". DNA (Track 4) is brilliant and features some of Zimmer's choppy string ostinatos in full force. The General Zod theme in "I Will Find Him" is also impressive with some great writing for strings, brass and percussion. There are some absolute corkers on here. "Goodbye My Son" features a wonderful ethereal soloist and some nice writing for strings. It doesn't win any awards for complexity but it sounds fantastic. The best track has to be the epic "What Are You Going To Do When You Are Not Saving The World", which starts off with a rendition of the Clark Kent theme before building into the Man of Steel theme. I don't think anyone could not like this track!

The other question is whether to go for the 1CD

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Score! Packaging not what I expected 21 Jun 2013
By Mattlex
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was trying to decided if I should get the standard or the limited Deluxe Edition. In the end i decided to get this version and was pretty excited as I loved the music in the film and was particularly looking forward to the Man of Steel sketchbook on the bonus disc which is well worth the purchase

My Only issue with this (It would have been 5 stars as a product otherwise) When I read 'steel book' packaging I expect to get a steel book case like you do with other collectors/deluxe editions. Instead the CD case is made from glossy card made to look like steel.
To be honest as Limited Duluxe/collectors editions go, there isn't anything overly amazing in this package - 2 post cards, a very standard booklet and a digital download ticket.

That aside the music itself is easily 5 stars, Hans Zimmer has done an amazing job of capturing the emotion, power and excitement you would expect for a Superman Movie and made it modern and current.

If you are buying it for the music then you wont have any issues and will love it! Just don't buy it expecting anything special with the other extras.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hits the spot every time! 23 Jan 2014
By Jinxt
Format:Audio CD
I'd go so far as to say this is my absolute favourite soundtrack to date!

Hans Zimmer is quite literally a musical genius in my eyes and pushes the scope for scoring and sound recording. Just watch the youtube 5-part series on behind the scenes of this film, he'll try all manner of stuff so far from the norm that it's absolutely inspiring and refreshing to see and hear. Whether he's using 10 of the best drummers in the world to drum synchronously to make a thunderous rhythm section, to using the craziest of contraptions (rather than just relying on synths) that create the most organic and epic sounds you'd never be able to recreate. This soundtrack hits the mark for me, conveying emotion and power in the bucket loads. The soundtrack alone has made me watch this film far too many times that I dread to say.

Hans is always pushing boundaries, he takes the beauty of orchestral instruments but manages to fuse them with all manner of massive, gorgeous, eerie and spectacular sounds. Don't deny yourself the pleasure of this CD or the movie, I even use the soundtrack to push me when working out, it really does excite me a little too much!

LOVE IT!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars strength in repetition 3 July 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
What is a soundtrack?

The best soundtracks have been called both evocative of the film or project they represent whilst maintaining sufficient individuality to be considered a piece of music in their own right. Before I go on, let me say I haven't seen Man of Steel at the movies yet. I collect soundtracks, I play them whilst writing to increase my emotions and those of the words, and I listen to them in the car for story inspiration and see where my imagination takes me as the music carries me along.

Therefore, I am not going to describe the track listing, what is strong, what isn't, and relate them to the film or the spiritual journey of the lead character.

Been a fan of Hans and his "stable" of composers for years so on first listen via youtube I downloaded this (always a sucker for deluxe edition extended versions) and given it several listens so far.

So is it any good?

For the most part the music is good, but the strength is it's greatest problem and the reason why I only gave this 3 stars.

It's repetitive. There are maybe three or four main themes repeated often in the entire score with minimal variation. Several of the tracks blatantly go down the line of...

Take a theme.
Repeat.
Add more instruments repeating the same theme.
Add drums, and continue to repeat.
Get louder and continue to repeat.
Get even louder still. Have your ears had enough? Well here it comes in the crescendo, even louder again!

So, in a nutshell, it's hardly Hans' most original or challenging soundtrack and a lot of what he does here sounds like variations on a theme. Worst point?
