Buy it... if you desire a triumphant return to the glory of Lalo Schifrin's original music for the 1960's television series, Joe Kraemer adapting its melodies and orchestrations brilliantly into easily the franchise's best score to date.

Avoid it... if you have become so attached to your looped, synthetic accompaniment to your modern blockbuster film scores that you can't handle truly magnificent, retro action/espionage thriller music.

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation: (Joe Kraemer) Never mind the fact that Tom Cruise is aging just like everyone else; he probably envisions himself playing Impossible Missions Force agent Ethan Hunt until well past a normal person's retirement, perhaps using publicity about doing his own stunts to stave off that inevitable mid-life crisis. The fifth Mission: Impossible entry for Cruise, resurrecting the franchise with grand success in 2015, was a monumental success all around, immediately spurring production on a sixth film. Many of the franchise's characters return for Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, once again playing the same tricks that made the 1960's television concept a hit. Hunt and his allies struggle to prove the existence of the evil "Syndicate" made up of former fellow agents from across the pond, raising interesting parallels with the plight of James Bond and his search to expose Quantum and Spectre. Rousing chases, tested allegiances, and a shadowy Alec Baldwin in an impactful supporting role lead to revelations perhaps expected but still satisfying. When writer and director Christopher McQuarrie was hired to helm Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, there was speculation that his past collaborations with director Bryan Singer and composer John Ottman would yield an opportunity for the latter to make an appearance in this franchise. But learned film music collectors will recall McQuarrie's successful partnership with American composer Joe Kraemer for the cult favorite The Way of the Gun in 2000 and Jack Reacher a dozen years later. Aside from these highlights, Kraemer's career has been mired in the realm of obscure television and documentaries, failing to live up to the potential that soundtrack enthusiasts have seen in him for a long time. With McQuarrie returning to the director's chair for Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, Kraemer was thankfully awarded another chance at the blockbuster limelight, and he does not disappoint. Together with Cruise and McQuarrie, Kraemer decided to tackle this fifth installment of the franchise by returning to its roots, embracing not only the two themes from Lalo Schifrin's scores that have endured in the concept's translation to the big screen, but ultimately emulating nearly everything about the music of Schifrin's era.
