Every track tells a story.

The track sets the tone for a grittier movie -- mildly sweeping orchestral with a driving electronic sound.

A good score supports the film, and in this case Henry Jackman does that and then some.

Subtle, nuanced, and pointed, Jackman's score for Captain America: The Winter Soldier pulls Captain America squarely into the twenty-first century with a neat blend of orchestral and electronic instrumentation. Much of the soundtrack is understated, playing a quiet counterpoint to the effective action and relationship of the characters. Most notable is Jackman's choice of time signature for the "Captain America" track. Where many composers would cast a hero in a 4/4 march or more complex uptempo 6/8 time, Jackman embraces the central axis of the film and its characters' struggles, holding the percussive elements as the song's anchor while keeping the meter of its timing shifting. Not necessarily for everyone, but this complete soundtrack is a solid entry for collectors of intrigue and political thriller scores and superhero films alike. 4/5

My favorite soundtrack out of all Marvel movies, moreso than Brian Tyler's soundtracks. Since some people still haven't seen the movie (as I hadn't till yesterday), I'll try to review it without spoilers.

In order to gauge this soundtrack, you must know: This is not big orchestra. This is not Alan Silvestri. This is not "The Avengers" or "Captain America: The First Avenger". This is "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" - a political thriller in a comic book context. The soundtrack has to be darker and full of threat. The nostalgic Americana doesn't fit the chaotic and distrusting world that this movie lives in.

Henry Jackman uses a completely different sound than Silvestri to accomplish this. The album alternates between subtle instrumental and pulsating electronic music, representing a thrilling global-scale spy story overlaying a personal "man out of time" drama. Rather than huge orchestral arrangements, he cultivates a minimal theme driven by the urgency of modern synth.

The album opens with "Lemurian Star", providing a pulsating theme to the entry action sequences of the movie. The track sets the tone for a grittier movie -- mildly sweeping orchestral with a driving electronic sound. It segues nicely into "Project Insight" - which I got to admit, is downright pompous, but judging from the scenes it accompanies in the movie, I think that's intentional.

"The Smithsonian" is the most like Silvestri's work, recalling the "Captain America" leitmotif from the first movie. But unlike Silvestri, Jackman uses the brass to call on a meditative tragic quieter sound. This feel is featured in "An Old Friend", "Fallen", "Frozen in Time", and "Alexander Pierce".

Yes, I too was disappointed that Alan Silvestri didn't do the score for Captain America: The Winter Soldier . His score for Captain America: The First Avenger was not only one of my personal favorites but also one of the most memorable orchestral film scores in recent years and his theme for Cap equally as unforgettable. It is heard once briefly at the beginning of this film when Cap is running laps around Sam Wilson (a.k.a. The Falcon) in D.C. but Cap's theme does not appear anywhere on this soundtrack. However, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a very different film from The First Avenger and therefore, almost by necessity, requires a much darker and incidental score accompanying its intense and suspenseful action sequences in contrast to the traditional orchestral period style approach of First Avenger to bring Cap into the politically more complex modern world of the 21st century.

Those that quickly dismiss this score simply as electronic "noise" or "cliche" are overlooking the brilliance of the film's colder atmosphere and political suspense as exemplified by the foreboding ambiance of "The Winter Soldier" theme. The cold electronic "noise" is intentionally unsettling by design, that characterizes The Winter Soldier like a dark ominous shadow when he appears onscreen and its electronic machinations are befitting this haunting Cold War-era cybernetic assassin.

Other tracks like "The Causeway," "Fury" and "The Lemurian Star" are obviously keeping tempo to the film's brisk and intense action and suspense onscreen.

CD?
It's probably all about making as much 'coin as they can off of the mp3's before possibly releasing on CD...

I order from them all the time. There is nothing different about the packaging from what you get in stores except maybe, sometimes, extensive liner notes.
