Top critical review
Words of an old school report "could do better"
on 11 June 2014
Not that this is a terrible score, as another reviewer has said, it is good in parts. It has the feel of the first Captain America's score by Alan Silvestri score but without the style and flare. It seemed like the brief with this work was to follow the suspense element of the film and not give it a super hero feel, the lack of a solid motif or theme for Captain America is disappointing, all other scores from the Avengers series have good themes that the scores are based around, this does not. I am glad that it came out on CD at last, the download format for music is terrifying in how bad it can be, I have now added this to my score collection, more to complete the Avengers series but it will not be the most listened to. It is a shame because the film itself was excellent, I feel the best in the series so far, I hope Marvel make better decisions for the next film.
