• Now Playing: Iron Man 2 score

I really love this sequel score to the Iron Man franchise. It worked very well in the movie and on album it makes a powerful impact on me. I don't find it messy whole, on contrary, it does maintain a good balance between the metallic hard rock elements and the softer material.

At first I couldn't believe this kind of sound would appeal to me at all because I'm not a fan of heavy metal music. But John Debney is such a gifted composer and he created a wonderful score which combines the symphonic and the rock music like elements.

If there is something to be improved here it has to relate to the theme for Iron Man himself. It appears all too infrequently on album. And it does sound something Jerry Goldsmith would have written, but I think Debney wanted to make a nod to the maestro Goldsmith with this theme.

What more can I say... Ivan Vanko's theme is marvellous, the action material is first class and the collaboration between The London Session Orchestra, Tom Morello, John Debney and co. sounds gorgeous. This is one of the best scores I've bought this year! My recommendations. *****
