Many of the tracks pull in James Bond / Barry-esque cues which try to highlight the evil villain secret island motif. This is cool but gets boring after 19 tracks. But for some reason this snazzy jazzy 60's style is back now in several movies; so give credit to the great one John Williams for re-invigorating this style back with "Catch Me If You Can". As a fan of Bond films it was just a little cheap that the Giacchino couldn't be a bit more original which is why I think the tracks 2, 6, 7 and 19 are the best ones since he puts in a whimsical jazzy effort with the end credits wrapping it all up. Overall its not a keeper for me though I do have Catch Me if You Can.
