2.0 out of 5 stars Not Enough, 6 Dec. 2013
This review is from: The Wolverine (Audio CD)
I bought the soundtrack almost immediately after watching the movie at the cinema. Despite several negative reviews on the film, I actually enjoyed it - but the score does not match up to it, in my view.

There are some emotive and moving parts, no doubt. But those moments are fleeting and few - so many of the 22 tracks are under 3 minutes long (in fact, some are only just over 1 minute) and this makes it difficult to digest and pick out your favourite tracks. It feels at times like a collection of sound bites, rather than an album of songs.

I listened to it twice just trying to wrap my head around it, but unfortunately, now that it is in my collection, even my favourite tracks on the album do not compel me to choose this score over another when travelling, training, or relaxing. There just isn't enough genuine quality on it.

It's a score that, for me, didn't really need to be released in this form. As harsh as that sounds, it just doesn't stand well on it's own, unlike Hans Zimmer's Dark Knight Rises, The Last Samurai, or Steve Jablonsky's Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
