When I saw the film (which I though was better than 1 and 3 but not quite as good as X-Men 2) one of the stand-outs was the score. Upon buying it it is soon apparent that there are only two major themes on this album, the Magneto theme and the X-Men: First Class theme. But don't worry as these two themes are worth the price alone.
These are two very different themes. If you want to hear them in the sample then go for track 1 for the X-Men theme and the last track for the Magneto theme.
The first track "First Class" is all about the violins and key changes and is superb. About half way through the tempo builds up with some drums and electric guitar and then the sweeping strings make a come back by the end of the track. Excellent. This theme is repeated a couple more times throughout the album, to best effect in tracks 11: X-Training and track 19: X-Men.
The Magneto theme raises its head briefly in the second half of track 2: Pain and Anger and then builds to a superb crescendo in track 5: Frankenstein's Monster. However the best track on the album is 20: Magneto, where the Magneto theme is given full reign, with sinister strings, thumping base and strong electronic sounds throughout (track 19 segues perfectly into this track.)
I would have preferred one or two more themes, tied to different characters, but I have been listening to it solidly for a month now, so it must be doing something right.
Definitely worth the money if you like the samples.

What am I thinking?! Well firstly, this is a superb action soundtrack which is up there with the best of 2011. Composer Henry Jackman is a relative newcomer to film scores, and I think this is reflected in the fresh and vibrant feel of the album.

The main theme as introduced in the opening track "First Class" is, well, first class. There's some great string writing present before the orchestra and more rocky elements come in. This theme is used rather sparingly. It appears in "Cerebro", but it's finest moment on the album comes in the outstanding track "X-Training", where the mix of electric guitar, electronics and orchestra is spine tingling in its execution. It's this sort of track the repeat button was designed for! There are quieter portions as well, which adds a nice flow to the album ("Rage and Serenity" and the opening of "To Beast or Not To Beast" would be good examples here).

The track "True Colours" felt slightly out of place in that the sub-theme it introduces in the first 60 seconds is a carbon copy of the main theme of Clash of the Titans. If you like that particular track - I think COTT would be for you. I would have preferred it is it was slightly less obvious though (although for most casual listeners I doubt you would noticed or cared)!

The album runs in at 60 minutes, and the felt like it was a perfect length. Jackman works in Hans Zimmer's Remote Control studio, and so the album as a whole feels very well produced and has a brilliant mix throughout.

While this movie may not be everyones cup of tea, Henry Jackmans' score is an outstanding piece of work to complement the various story elements of this film. For me, by far the best part of this score is for Lehnsherr/Magneto - combined with the directors approach to the character it's bordering on genious. Dark, mean, moody and overwhelmingly powerful is how I would describe this recurring themic piece and it really underlines how driven the character is, and his persona. A different style may not have had the same impact and may have diluted the character, so a lot of credit to Jackman for giving this movie a palpable atmosphere during those particular moments.

The music is different to the original three X-men movies but is a great addition to the action in the film. This bodes well for the new chapter in this story.

The OST is excellent. The autor is from Hans Zimmer school.
The Magneto theme is my favourite.
Nothing to say about amazon service. Just perfect
