John Carter Score Review
16 Jul 2012
Michael Giacchino is no stranger to delivering great music in film and television. Prime examples would be 2009's Star Trek and the TV show LOST. John Carter is no exception. From the beginning you are thrown right into the action with "A Thern for the Worse" and taken to a soothing choral piece in "The Blue Light Special", and ending it with an grand epic finish in "John Carter of Mars". No doubt it is that distinctive sound from Giacchino's other work that is recognizable, but to me that is what makes the John Carter stand out.
He doesn't deviate from what he's used to doing, and in this film he does an exceptional job in harnessing the music to match the mood in the movie and also make you feel like you are on Mars. With the addition of a little Middle-Eastern instrumentation, the John Carter score feels complete and delivers that epic craving while watching this Sci-Fi Adventure. I highly recommend for anyone who is a fan of Giacchino's work to buy this album to add to their collection. Kudos to Mr. Giacchino and his orchestra for providing another fine piece of work. I am crossing my fingers a JC sequel is in the works and that Giacchino will be at the helm of the music once again.
