The soundtrack for "Planes" is a wonderful album that gets me excited to see the movie. The main theme [Track 4] in particular is fantastic, and captures the wonder and excitement of flying.

"Planes" takes place in the same world as Pixar's "Cars" series; and the music here is every bit as good as Randy Newman and Michael Giacchino's music for the "Cars" movies. In fact, the "Planes" score successfully replicates the same playful tone that made the soundtracks for "Cars" & "Cars 2" so much fun to listen to.

FAVORITE TRACKS:
[4] Planes
[6] Last Contestant
[18] Skipper's Story

Composer Mark Mancina does an excellent job with this score. Mancina should get more work in my opinion (assuming he wants it). He did the score for "Twister" (one of my favorite scores ever); he also worked on the arrangement that plays over the Walt Disney Pictures logo.

Pixar's two Cars movies were both massive financial successes despite being the least critically well-received movies from the studio to date. Now, Disney has decided to produce a spinoff (without Pixar), which instead of focusing on racing cars focuses on racing planes. It's called Planes. The early reviews have a certain theme running through them, which is "If you thought Cars 2 was bad, wait till you see this." Also having a certain theme running through it, in a much more pleasant way, is Mark Mancina's nice score. Mancina was very popular during the 1990s before having a much later profile in the new century; for Planes he has plugged in all his drum machines from 1995 and written a score that is largely indistinguishable in style and technology from those he wrote around that time. I haven't seen the film yet so can't say whether it was a deliberate decision to write in a cheesy, outdated style, or that's just how Mancina still writes (which would go some way to explaining his lower profile if so); but cheesy or not, it's certainly fun.

So, that main theme - it's a warmhearted (but - sorry - extraordinarily cheesy) piece of Americana, in a style which will be familiar to Mancina fans. It's memorable, too (especially after you hear it for the 75th time during the course of the 40-minute score). You hear it in two different forms - the warmhearted but cheesy Americana form, and the action form, which is essentially the same as the warmhearted but cheesy Americana form, with drum machines accompanying it. There are also some nice little vignettes - a Life of Pi knock-off in "Dusty and Ishani" is really lovely and the a capella choral finale "Skipper's Theme" is actually quite touching.

The score to planes is written by composer Mark Mancina, perhaps better known for his work on 90s films Twister and Speed. I have always liked him as a composer, and after a long dry spell regarding assignments and releases, this score, and the wonderful fantasy score for the game SORCERY last year shows no doubt he is still a fantastic composer. Planes is a largely orchestral score with some great writing for strings/brass/woodwind sections with the occasional choir thrown in for good measure.

You get about 45 minutes of Mancina's material, and it is superb. The score part of the album starts with "Planes" (Track 4), with a brass rendition of the Planes main theme with percussive elements and stings adding to the latter part of the track. This main theme is reprised often across the album in various guises. "Dusty Soars" is a favourite, as is the brilliant "1st Place" with hints of the main theme and choir towards the latter part of the track. There's an Indian/Bollywood influence to "Dusty & Ishani" (Track 13), but much of the album has a similar style.

Many of the score tracks are short - the longest is "Running on Fumes" (Track 15) running in at 3 minutes 11 seconds, and this is one of, if not the best track on the album. This is perhaps my only criticism, because the tracks are short there isn't much chance for much development within each track.

The sound quality is great as you would expect, and the strings and brass sections are mixed particularly well.
