Star Trek Into Darkness (STID), the acronym of which sounds like something you would get diagnosed with at the GP, is Giacchino's latest album in the franchise. I loved the music to the first film, despite is having too short a running time (something this album also suffers from) and had extremely high hopes for this album. Thankfully, they were met. This album is in my opinion a career high for Giacchino, with stunning orchestral and choral writing that really packs a punch.

If you want a track by track analysis, I would suggest looking at one of the previous reviews. However, some personal favourites were the stunning Warp Core Values (Track 10), which has an amazing rendition of the main theme with choir and simply epic. The same can be said about the closing track Star Trek Main Theme (Track 14). The start of Buying The Farm (Track 11) is a welcome change of pace, with some great writing for strings and piano. The whole album is fantastic though, and it flows well. It is well mixed and doesn't sound as dry as some of his earlier albums. The different sections and choir all have exceptional clarity, and I thought the louder choir was a definite improvement from the soundtrack to the first film.

My only gripe - the running time. I'm not saying for one minute that I expect every single second to be released, but releasing 47 minutes is pretty shameful and not the greatest value for money. I understand that longer albums mean more expense in terms of license fees paid to the orchestra and choir (hence lower profits). However, for a film that has a budget of $190 million they probably could have afforded a longer running time and is poor given that many soundtrack albums are over an hour at least.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant but desperately cut down 26 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
I loved the soundtrack to the previous film but was, like a lot of other reviews, shocked by how reduced this way - particularly considering it's odd high price. Where is the music from the closing credits, for instance? Brilliant music but I feel I've been ripped off by Colosseum.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you loved the film, you will love this! 30 May 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I loved every second of Into Darkness, I had heard the full soundtrack before but after watching the film i felt the need to buy the soudtrack. Now that i've listened to it over and over again it always makes me feel like I'm watching the film again.

If your a fan of Michael Giacchino or Star Trek this is a OST not to miss out on.

My favourite tracks are Buying the space farm, London Calling and Pranking the natives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing rollercoaster musical ride 1 May 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
A film is often complimented by the music, although it is often difficult to get the balance right. This however, is how a film score should be, not so overly in-your-face, but wonderfully complimenting the story onscreen, and enjoyable in its own way to be listened to at pleasure in your own time to evoke the exciting memories of the cinematic extravaganza. This is a perfect musical soundtrack.

I bought this for my hubby, absolutely brilliant it keeps him quiet. He's a bit of a star trek geek and he loves his classical music a perfect combination. Worth every penny!!

5.0 out of 5 stars star trek, into darkness 2 Jan 2014

HI, what a fantastic album, was introduced to the soundtracks by my brother in-law Christmas-day on his iPod. I spent 2000 on a new hi-fi in November, and into darkness sounds brilliant.

3.0 out of 5 stars Terrific score, but average album presentation 22 Dec 2013
Format:MP3 Download
[...] Opinions on how "Star Trek Into Darkness" compares to its predecessor will be divided. Personally, I believe it to be superior, because the composition, the performance and the recording are a little more precise. [...] This time the orchestration is focused much more on the strings; its players providing a very tight performance.

Having said that... for all its technical marvel, I find most of Giacchino's score to be a little too calculated (less so than the previous one, but still...). [...] So, this is only a minor gripe, but I believe that its meticulousness is holding back a greater potential. Because... When the shackles do come of in "The San Fran Hustle" we are treated to what may well become the best action cue of 2013!

A bigger issue is the presentation of the score on album. There is a lot of really great material missing. An extra ten or fifteen minutes, particularly of Harrison's music, would have been very welcome (and would've lifted my rating below by at least half a star, if not more). One can only hope that a deluxe edition might one day get released - as it did for "Star Trek" (2009).[...]

This is the music for the Star Trek: Into Darkness. It borrows extensively in thematic terms from the music of the 2009 movie but with a darker, heavier turn. Read more

Let's be clear ... Giacchino's Star Trek music is not Goldsmith, it's not Horner , it's not Eidelman but it is a worthy addition to these ranksthrough it's sheer gusto and energy. Read more

Michael Giaccino's score for Into Darkness is awesome; end of story (almost). It's got some cracking tracks that are well up there with the best he's done. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars If you're a Trekker
Why is the soundtrack 50p more than the whole film on DVD?

Still if you're a fan who cares. It sounds great and blends well with the last Trek film score
