Hans Zimmer has been handed the baton for the new Man of Steel film, following on from the mighty John Williams and John Ottman's rather excellent score for the failed 2006 reboot Superman Returns. Let's get this out the way at the start - if you are a fan of the music Williams wrote for the original films, stay well away from this release. This soundtrack is firmly in the camp of 21st Century music, and the more modern sound will not be to everyone's taste.

I won't go into every track on the albums (see lower down for the different versions). The softer piano theme for Clark Kent is extremely effective, and I would say stronger than some of the more action based material. The highlights are the brilliant "This Is Clark Kent" (Track 14) and "Sent Here For A Reason". DNA (Track 4) is brilliant and features some of Zimmer's choppy string ostinatos in full force. The General Zod theme in "I Will Find Him" is also impressive with some great writing for strings, brass and percussion. There are some absolute corkers on here. "Goodbye My Son" features a wonderful ethereal soloist and some nice writing for strings. It doesn't win any awards for complexity but it sounds fantastic. The best track has to be the epic "What Are You Going To Do When You Are Not Saving The World", which starts off with a rendition of the Clark Kent theme before building into the Man of Steel theme. I don't think anyone could not like this track!

The other question is whether to go for the 1CD

I was trying to decided if I should get the standard or the limited Deluxe Edition. In the end i decided to get this version and was pretty excited as I loved the music in the film and was particularly looking forward to the Man of Steel sketchbook on the bonus disc which is well worth the purchase

My Only issue with this (It would have been 5 stars as a product otherwise) When I read 'steel book' packaging I expect to get a steel book case like you do with other collectors/deluxe editions. Instead the CD case is made from glossy card made to look like steel.
To be honest as Limited Duluxe/collectors editions go, there isn't anything overly amazing in this package - 2 post cards, a very standard booklet and a digital download ticket.

That aside the music itself is easily 5 stars, Hans Zimmer has done an amazing job of capturing the emotion, power and excitement you would expect for a Superman Movie and made it modern and current.

If you are buying it for the music then you wont have any issues and will love it! Just don't buy it expecting anything special with the other extras.

I absolutely love the soundtrack to this film. It is epic and emotional, i think it is one of the best that Hans Zimmer has put out for a superhero film.
Obviously it is anchored by the majestic 'what are you going to do when you are not saving the world' which is by far the best piece in the film, and in my opinion one of the best movie charactor 'themes' in the last 15 years. but a
ll of the other pieces offer something different, there are quiet reflective moments, ominous threatening pieces and some beautifully tender bits as well.
This has become one of my favourite CDs for putting on in the background whilst doing things and i recommend it heartily

This is a terrific soundtrack!

I recently saw Hans Zimmer in concert at the Birmingham Barclay Arena and every time I listen to his musical scores I am blown away.

The set is very nicely presented up and the additional pieces of documentation add a little more information about the production o the movie and the composing of the score.

This would make a terrific gift for anyone who a fan of action pack music.

For me, this is one of the best movie soundracks of all time. It is rare that a movie is truly elevated by, rather than it's events simply complemented by, the muscic of the score. This is one of those cases. It easily adds 2 stars onto an otherwise enjoyable, but not necessarily rewatchable film.

Disc 2 contains sketches by Hanz Zimmer for what would become the full versions on disc 1. Overall, these are simply rough cuts and not worth the extra expenditure to own the deluxe edition. For most, buying the regular OST (a five-star purchase at half the price) will be enough.

If you like Hanz Zimmer's work this and want more then turn to the Dark Knight Trilogy, Gladiator, The Thin Red Line, Pirates of the Carribeaan (from 2 onwards) and Amazing Spider-Man 2 for more excellent scores from one of the greatest (if not the greatest) cinema composers of his generation.

I already have Inception and Interstellar and I feel this soundtrack completes a really good Hans Zimmer trilogy.
Moreover, this deluxe edition delivers an extra CD that is packed of good music - if you like the M0S soundtrack then this really is the version to go for. I echo other reviews that the packaging isnt steelbook-like. It's just card. This is a mis-sell IMO. If fact, they missed a trick: a steel casing for the Man of Steel soundtrack? No brainer!
The booklet is nice, though it's more photos than written insight. Having said that it's good to see the talent that has contributed to this epic soundtrack.
The Z+ app is pretty neat - a nice reward for paying premium.
