1.0 out of 5 stars
Amazing music, but not the full sountrack, 15 Dec. 2014
First I need to clear something out. THIS IS PROBABLY THE BEST SCORE OF HANS ZIMMER. The 1-star review goes for the marketing tactic that emitted several tracks from the music. Why? Because they are simply greedy and they want fans to buy the same product twice once the "Illuminated Star Projection Edition" will come out( which will be released in February in UK). No wonder fans were frustrated when the original soundtrack came out . Several pieces were missing and they were only available as a digital download. So hard core fans of Zimmer bought the same album twice(plus the missing tracks) . Now there is nothing wrong with digital downloads but its not my cup of tea. I like my albums to be in physical form and with all full dynamics which an mp3 file cannot give(that's a personal opinion and nothing else).
However I cannot agree with a company when releasing something like that. Obviously they haven't learnt their lessons from the past that idiotic tactics like that, result in people downloading their music illegally . Buyers are not stupid anymore and most of them will try before they buy. Especially nowadays that all the information for a product precedes the official release (forums, blogs, critics,etc) its simply stupid when you decide to play old school. So lets wait to buy the full release of the soundtrack entitled "Illuminated Star Projection Edition" rather than this. Regarding the music is simply superb. Zimmer wrote a masterpiece in the same artistic level as Inception and Dark Knight. Some people complained that the music drowned the dialogue in the movie. I disagree as I believe that the music was in the right place at the right time. The pieces are stuck in your mind long after the movie is finished and certainly its a soundtrack you can listen several times and have goosebumps all over your body. I have never been so thrilled with a piece of music since The Fountain of Clint Mansell . Masterpiece . Sorry for my english.
