The few people who saw the blatant Harry Potter cash-in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief didn't seem to like it very much, so it's a bit of a surprise that three years later a sequel has arrived, in the form of Sea of Monsters. Potter director Chris Columbus hasn't come back, Thor Freudenthal taking over those duties; and neither has the original composer, Christophe Beck. Canadian composer Andrew Lockington has built up quite a fan base on the back of his relatively small number of scores so far, which generally eschew the general trend in film scoring and hearken back to the sort of thing David Arnold did so well back in the 1990s - and, sure enough, Arnold's collaborator Nicholas Dodd is on board with Lockington. I haven't quite caught the Lockington bug yet - Journey 2 in particular built up a very vocal set of fans but - nice though it was - it all seemed a bit bland to me.

Sea of Monsters is very much in the same sort of style - and is even more bland. What we have here is a thematic, primarily orchestral action/adventure score, composed and performed with enthusiasm - it's exactly the sort of thing I should love. It's exactly the sort of thing I frequently pine for when I'm listening to or writing about the latest soulless, generic Remote Control score. And yet love it I do not - it's skilfully done, it's not without its entertaining features - but I'm afraid I also find this to be soulless and generic. Don't get me wrong: I'd much rather listen to it than Steve Jablonsky or whoever. Yet there's no personality to the music - none that I hear, anyway.

I think Andrew Lockington has done an AWESOME job of the music for this film, it's dramatic, it's haunting and totally amazing! I think Thalia's Story is especially good. He really captures the moment of Thalia's sacrifice, starting off dramatic and ending in a beautifully haunting way. I think this has to be my favourite piece from the whole film. The Colchis Bull is another great piece and the main title is excellent. All in all this is a epical album to match a really great film.

I should say at the outset that I tried very hard not to be biased in this review - I am a huge fan of Andrew Lockington, and his previous scores for Journey to the Center of the Earth, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (one of my favourites of last year) and City of Ember are all extraordinarily good fun. No doubt this is helped by veteran orchestrator Nicholas Dodd, but Lockington's scores have a wonderful bold orchestral style the likes of which are not heard frequently enough in Hollywood these days. Taking over the reins from Christopher Beck after his surprisingly good Percy Jackson & Olympians: Lightning Theif, my expectations for PJ:SOM were high, and I can say they were met.

The album kicks off with Thalia's Story, which contains a brief statement of what I assume is Thalia's theme with a brief solo female vocalist before the main PJ:SOM theme kicks in with some great brass and string writing and is probably my second favourite track on the album. This is reprised several times across the album (and forms the basis for the closing song "To Feel Alive). I won't go into all 20 score tracks, but there are some corkers on here. "Wave Conjuring" (Track 14) is almost 7 minutes in length and the writing brass, strings and choir really packs a punch. Hippocampus (Track 9) is another favourite, which goes through loads of different styles in that 3 minute 35 seconds.

The music for this film was amazing. I particularly like how there even seems to be humour to go with one scene. My favourite tracks are the ones that use the soft vocals and especially the final track, used in the films closing credits.
