Michael Giacchino's score for Lightyear is out. I find that this is one of the best things Giacchino has written this year. Buzz's theme is simple, something he could have written for any Pixar movie. The theme shines when he incorporates it with Medal of Honor style orchestrations. As good as that musical theme is, the star of the album is Zurg's theme. While being backed by an all-male choir, the music oozes the kind of villain menace I have missed from his work since Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The album also features a great 12 minute suite of both ideas at the end. After the underwhelming experience I had with Jurassic World: Dominion, this score is a terrific addition to the scores Giacchino has written this year.
