Chappie soundtrack by Hans Zimmer   (CD review)

If you think you already know exactly what a Hans Zimmer soundtrack sounds like and, in your head, you’ve got the famous sweeping orchestral sounds of the ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ or ‘Gladiator’ themes, prepare yourself for a surprise. The soundtrack to ‘Chappie’, a Science Fiction film about a law enforcement robot who gets kidnapped […]

The Music Of DC Comics Volume 2    (CD review)

For every super-hero, there is a corresponding theme that is meant to set to the heart-pounding and the blood racing. From John Williams stirring score for ‘Superman’ to the childishly simple yet brilliantly catchy opening to the 1966 ‘Batman’ TV show, all swirling around the minds of many super-hero fans, music has always played an […]

The Witch: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack music by Mark Korven (CD review).

From time to time, I review soundtracks without being able to see the original film for one reason or another. ‘The Witch’ is one of these. If you want to be really spooked then play this one late at night as I expect the finale of track 4, ‘Hare In The Woods’, will positively have […]

1979 Revolution: Black Friday – Original Video Game Soundtrack by Nima Fakhrara (MP3 review).

‘1979 Revolution: Black Friday’ is set in Tehran and you play a photojournalist who returns to Iran amid the bloody uprising against the ruling Shah. The game promises an immersive story as those you love deal with the consequences of the choices you make. Therefore the music has a rather big task in creating the […]

Deadpool Reloaded: More Music From The Motion Picture (CD review).

I should point out from the start that this isn’t the original soundtrack but the extra music tracks from the 2016 film ‘Deadpool’. Based on opening track, ‘Merc With A Mouth’, lyrics, ‘Deadpool Reloaded’ is clearly adult orientated, which is a shame as the rest of the tracks from the film are more general issue […]

The Terminator: Original Music by Brad Fiedel (soundtrack review).

There are times when I jump at an opportunity. Everyone knows the music from ‘The Terminator’ although I bet you would be hard pushed to remember its composer, Brad Fiedel. Even after all these years, the music is strong enough to be listened to sans the visuals and is still sinister by implication and still […]

X-Men: Apocalypse. Original Soundtrack by John Ottman (CD review).

There are many tonal differences between the Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes. While fun and colour dominate the Marvel world, the DC world opts for a dark palette and even darker feel. While light-hearted banter is key in the world of Marvel, their DC counterparts go for a more operatic and gruff turn of phrase. […]
