I am a fan of Michael Giacchino's scores, particularly for the TV show LOST, Star Trek - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and his more recent Super 8 that I thought was exceptional. This is my first score that I have in the MI series, so apart from Lalo Schifrin's main theme which is reprised, I can't comment on whether any of Giacchino's music from the last film has been used in this release.

In essence, Ghost Protocol is a decent action score but never feels frantic. There's no hint of the choppy ostinato technique that Zimmer and his associates often use to keep up the pace, with Giacchino instead choosing to a more intelligent approach to the orchestrations and percussive elements that makes for a rewarding listen on album.

I won't go over every track in depth (there's 22 in total), but some favourites of mine included a Russian style choir and theme introduced in "Kremlin With Anticipation" (Track 5) and "From Russia With Shove" (Track 6). The penultimate track "Putting the Miss in Mission" (Track 21) was one of my favourites - the pace was much slower and writing for the string section was fantastic.

The insertion of Lalo Schifrin's main theme into the score was well executed alongside Giacchino's material, and was used more frequently than I had expected. My only other point of reference for music with a central recurring theme are for the James Bond scores, and I personally thought Schifrin's MI theme worked better throughout compared to composers who have reorchestrated John Barry's main theme into their James Bond scores.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid score with a smokin' hot take on the theme. 10 Jan 2012
By Storylover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Giacchino is one of the hot composers now in Hollywood, hot off an Oscar for his wonderful score for "Up". He has a special relationship with J.J. Abrams, and his Lost and Alias scores have some of the most consistently lovely and interesting scoring that I have heard in a television show. All of this had me quite excited about the Ghost Protocol score, and I couldn't wait to hear it. It is good--but honestly, it is not as original as I had hoped for. I heard an interview in which Giacchino discussed his interest in including a lot of regional instruments and sounds as the fabric of the score. To be fair, this has been accomplished, but the resultant score does not sound as original as I had hoped. Ultimately, this is a solid action movie soundtrack, with great strings, good percussion, and an exciting throbbing beat. The famous and fantastic theme from Mission Impossible is blended well throughout, and the actual theme itself is very stylishly done. The redo of the theme itself is definitely a highlight, and is perhaps the most enjoyable iteration yet. I've listened to this daily since I got it, as I had hoped that it would grow on me. It has, and I think that I am going to get more pleasure out of this in the future. I look forward to more scores from this exciting composer, but I will probably be heading back to my Lost scores in the mean time. Recommended for fans of MI and for fans of Giacchino; I'm not sure that much of this music will survive outside of context, however.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slightly better than the last score. 2 Jan 2012
By Jerry Hart - Published on Amazon.com
The movie is great, much better than the lackluster (but still good) "Mission: Impossible III." That being said, I enjoyed the music for "Ghost Protocol" more as well. I'm still not a fan of recordist Dan Wallin's awful mixing, but at least he separates the brass instruments this time around instead of confining them to the center. The orchestra still sounds like it was recorded in a tiny garage, though, and I pray one day composer Michael Giacchino ditches Wallin and goes with a better engineer.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Near-Perfect Action Score From Giacchino 1 Mar 2012
By Kaya Savas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Michael Giacchino has the rare honor of being the only composer to compose consecutive Mission: Impossible films. Danny Elfman kicked things off, Hans Zimmer followed and J.J. Abrams brought Giacchino to the table for the third outing. What is shared here is that Michael Giacchino is both Brad Bird's and J.J. Abrams go to composer. So I have to imagine Ghost Protocol to almost be like a buddy cop film behind the camera. Giacchino does a fantastic job with his second Mission: Impossible film. The difference here is that this is just full out fun instead of the third score that was taken so seriously.

Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible is more along the lines of a James Bond film than any of the previous entries, and Giacchino has plenty of fun with it this time. While the third film took itself very seriously and was an intense experience I felt like this time around I could relax a bit more. We knew we were going to see Ethan Hunt kick some ass, and the music matches that. We also get a lot more world flavor. Since we go globetrotting Giacchino infuses some pretty rad tracks with local flavors. "Mood India" is just plain awesome and "A Man, A Plan, A Code, Dubai" made me feel as if Lawrence of Arabia was going to ride in at any moment. The action cues are executed perfectly and are constructed with extreme precision. The builds and the drops all play excellently with the editing. The score feels animated and you can map the picture out pretty well by listening to the score. It's very rare to get an action score like this anymore especially fully orchestral. Giacchino makes the orchestra feel so alive and propulsive. I enjoy some good synth now and then like everyone else, but Giacchino's style makes it seem like synth is now obsolete. He makes orchestra seem like it's the forefront of technology in scoring and that synthesizers are the way of the golden age. It's really awesome.

I love Michael Giacchino. I grew up on Medal Of Honor and his music has always been a part of my life. He can make you cry if he wants to, he can make you curl up in your seat, or he can just be damn entertaining. In this case this is just one damn perfect action score. It's one of those you play over and over to enjoy every moment over again. Pure fun, pure adrenaline and pure Giacchino.

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerhouse Score, Mission Accomplished 17 Jan 2012
By M. Prevette - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a heck of a fun CD listening experience. Much like the movie itself, this score , while having some tremendous, aggressive action, is lighter in tone overall. The fun take on the MI theme in "Light The Fuse" sets the tone for a rollicking fun ride. There's some great over the top choir for the Kremlin scenes, and middle Eastern pastiche for the India scenes. Aside from the action, Giacchino has really always excelled at more emotional writing, and he writes a lovely, wistful ending cue for the movie's bittersweet finale. Great stuff all around, action - suspense - emotion - all wrapped up in some really great looking package design from Varese.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Score. Mission: Accomplished. 4 Jan 2012
By HAMLET - Published on Amazon.com
Note: I have the score as mp3.

After a rousing and action-packed score for M:I-2, can it be repeated for Mssion: Impossible-Ghost Protocol? (I didn't bother with the score for M:I-III, as the movie itself was a major disappointment, in my opinion). The answer is an explosive YES. The music is really good, from the action-packed opening sequence until the climatic finale. "Your mission, should you choose to accept it..."
