This review is from: Iron Man 3 [Official Score] (Audio CD)
this is a fine piece of crafted work for this kind of movie. in the strictest sense of reviewing a movie score, i wouldnt say it screams iconic themes you will whistle, Tyler is no Williams but then JW would have tackled this is such a profoundly different way ,its basically never a fair ride to compare any composer with his work.
but its a fine effort. is it as good as Debney or Djawadi's score??? id say it fell somewhere imbetween and maybe this leans harder on being a full on trailer music album than a score, but it captures the feel of the movie, it drives the movie at a hot pace and this is what the story required. their was rarely a dull moment in Iron Man 3. its more subdued scenes are few and far between so in all fairness, the aggressive dominant full on horn section, multi layered extra large percussion works here.
It is a VERY commercial modern score. it plays hard on all the previous ground work Zimmer has laid down for 20 years of that there is no denying.
