Inspite of the other review that harangues the Main title as "thin and pedestrian".(my words)
I reject that.
As a devoted John Williams fan since the Lost in Space days and a Supreme superman fan, I believe that Gruska's Main Theme is a masterstroke!
Using a small orchestra he fashioned an inspiring tribute to Williams Main Superman theme -and yet creates his own thematic line , exciting, punchy and uplifting!
My only complaint is that it is too short and that there is not MORE on the soundtrack.
Although his prog jazz rock jams are cool, It woulkd have been interesting to have seen him do an entire symphonic score for an exciting movie!
Take away from some of that Zimmer and Arnold monopoly over modern soundtrack music.
