Comments about the soundtrack for Ice Age: The Meltdown (John Powell)

Edit | Delete
A worthy successor!

Unlike many other sequels, John Powell’s score is a great successor of “Ice Age” written by David Newman. Furthermore, John managed it to create his very own themes (not basing on Newman’s music) and atmosphere. His score combines comedy, fear, sadness and action at a level, which I never expected to be done by him before.
Of course, there are his more “typical” passages again (some parts remind you about “Shrek” and most definitely “Evolution”), but this doesn’t spoil the score itself.
I can only hope and wish, that John will be able to do more scores by himself – without support of the talents by Harry Gregson-Williams!
