Captain Marvel: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack - Soundtrack review
Marvel Music/Hollywood Records release the soundtrack to Marvel Studios’s Captain Marvel, featuring an orchestral score by award-winning composer Pinar Toprak. Set in the 1990s, the film follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the centre of the maelstrom...
Pinar Toprak (Justice League, Krypton, The Lightkeepers, The Wind Gods) delivers exactly what you'll be expecting with her score for Captain Marvel. The album contains 23 tracks (1 hr, 07 min, 27 sec) and is packed to bursting with epic, adrenaline charged action themes.
For those who have seen the movie, you'll already be aware of the fact that the score is instrumental in creating the right vibe, and acts as another character in its own right. It's big, it's bold, but there's also a subtle, layered element. However, there's also nothing here that stands out as memorable. Yes, it's epic and in your face, but I doubt anyone left the cinema humming the theme tune, even though it's a good, solid action theme.
This is more a multi-layered offering that rewards the listener over time. While, as a whole, I thoroughly enjoyed this score, there wasn't a single track that I felt the urge to add to my current playlist.
