Product description

Product Description

In Summer 2014, the world's most revered monster is reborn:
Godzilla
The new Sci-Fi Action Adventure & Warner Brothers blockbuster

Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
with a score by Golden Globe & Grammy winner Alexandre Desplat

Synopsis:
An epic rebirth to Toho's iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, pits the world's most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity's scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

Gareth Edwards directs Godzilla, which stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass), Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai, Inception), Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene), Oscar winner Juliette Binoche (The English Patient, Cosmopolis), and Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine), with Oscar nominee David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck, The Bourne Legacy) and Bryan Cranston (Argo, TV's Breaking Bad).

About the music:
The soundtrack is composed by Golden Globe and Grammy Award winning French composer Alexandre Desplat, who burst onto the Hollywood scene in 2003 with his evocative score to Girl With the Pearl Earring. From this point on he contributed the soundtracks to a rich collection of highly successful movies such as Syriana, Golden Compass, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, Twilight Saga: New Moon, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows (Part 1&2) and The King’s Speech as well Monuments Man. Desplat's Harry Potter soundtracks were released on Sony Classical in 2009.

A solid sound track that perfectly captures a rampaging Godzilla. Reminiscent of Silverstri or Horner at times, a nice change from all the Hans Zimmer stuff floating around (not that I dislike Mr Zimmer).

4 1/2 stars. I’ve been an admirer of Desplat for some time, scores such as The Golden Compass and his Harry Potter scores and more low key intimate scores like Benjamin Button have really impressed me and showed he is a true master of his craft, but I had no idea he would be able to pull off such a powerful, exciting, masterful and technically dazzling action / mystery score such as he has here with Godzilla. It is a very welcome hark back to the more traditional sound of action scores of the previous decades in terms of it being written for a large scale full orchestra where the orchestra takes centre stage and is you know…musical…in a way that the recent trend for such scores aren’t. Whereas many modern scores for action adventure films opt for the Hans Zimmer ‘epic’ school of simplistic, stripped down chord progressions and minimalistic background music dressed up with hyper bombastic and synthetic percussion and orchestra hits and oodles of electronica, Desplat’s Godzilla illustrates exactly what can be done when a master uses an orchestra to its full potential and writes actual music that has direction, emotion, intelligence, development and colour.

Large parts of the score are concerned with mood and atmosphere and does this extremely well, there is often a real sense of dread and Desplat’s use of synth effects add to the interesting orchestration and colours. There is often an electronic core to his tracks, lending cool and mysterious sounds upon which the orchestra builds around it. The score is often majestic, powerful and melodic, his love / loss theme is one of the best of recent times, a superior beautiful melody that tugs the heart strings without being overblown or sentimental.

High octane, monstrously dramatic/action music, yet retaining in full the Desplat artsy canon in Caijou proportions !!!
