Buy it... if you seek a fabulous reworking of Alan Silvestri's main concept theme by Danny Elfman on top of functional Brian Tyler music for this messy but ultimately satisfying superhero score.

Avoid it... if you can't shake the nagging feeling that while Tyler's music for this genre is very accomplished and functional, nothing really can compete with Elfman's superhero prowess, and the mixture of the two styles serves as a detriment to the whole for you.

Avengers: Age of Ultron: (Brian Tyler/Danny Elfman) As long as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to generate over billion dollars of revenue per flick, expect more of them to be cranked out indefinitely. The eleventh such feature, 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron, is, like 2012's The Avengers, a mash-up of all the characters introduced in the various movies dedicated to those individuals, thrusting them against another common enemy while attempting, at least in this case, to develop some new character plotlines on the side. Those relationships are explored, but the focus remains on massive fight sequences in Avengers: Age of Ultron, the heroes this time coalescing to stop an artificial intelligence bent on eradicating humanity for the sake of the planet (wait, wasn't that also the goal in Kingsman?). This villain, Ultron, is the Frankenstein allusion for this universe, and once dispatched, the overarching franchise storyline can move back to galactic matters. One has to wonder how the world's population would really deal with all this ruckus if fantasy became reality; there's only so much "running out of the away" bystanders can do in these flicks before they adopt X-Men universe leanings. One of the areas the Marvel Cinematic Universe has sought to improve upon in itself is its music. The scores for these movies, typically battling a variety of song placements along with the sound effects, have always struggled to form any kind of cohesive identity. The most successful composer to accomplish such memorable thematic presence in the franchise has been Alan Silvestri, who has ultimately defined the Captain America and Avengers portions of the universe's music. In later Marvel entries, however, Brian Tyler then became the favored composer, with strong scores for both the Iron Man and Thor storylines combining the masculinity of the Hans Zimmer blockbuster expectations from the studio with the Jerry Goldsmith rhythmic flair that actually (still) works. Tyler vowed upon taking the assignment to bring some cohesion to the franchise, combining his own prior themes with those of Silvestri to form some much-needed continuity. Somewhere along the way, though, veteran superhero score master Danny Elfman stepped in to provide additional and replacement music for Avengers: Age of Ultron, taking the references to the franchise's themes even a step further.
