Ultra modern, rich and atmospheric soundtrack that complements the contemporary patina of this excellent film. The brooding beats march lockstep with Dredd and Anderson's ascent through Peach Trees. Reminiscent of the cool, rhythmic groove of John Carpenter overlaid with NIN post-industrial. Just great.

Ok, so you know the film is awesome, right?

What? What do you mean, you haven't seen it yet?? Go see it. Right now. Don't worry, I'll be here when you get back.
(Whistling)
There you are. NOW you know it's awesome, right? I know. I can tell from the tears of joy streaming down your face.

Now that you've seen it, what I'm about to say will make more sense. If you're like me, you got the feeling that the film was a throwback...the perfect answer to that garbage they called the Total Recall remake. It was a vision of the future as it was envisioned in the 80's...all concrete, chain link fence and vector computer displays. No iPads in Mega City One, for sure. Dredd's future was so futuristic, it wrapped around and started itself over again.

The soundtrack is like that; ultra-modern, hyper-distorted bass lines and thumping drums mixed with thirty-year-old synthesizers run through low-fi filters. Dredd's main theme, "Mega City One," when it gets going, is the stuff of grinding, blind justice put to music. Other tracks, like Ma Ma's theme, are made up of the sisister sounds of synth, rarely changing but with similar beats, marking her single-minded drive to power as being in parallel to Dredd's single-minded pursuit of justice. They are similar minds with opposing morals.

But the real treat is the best song of all, "She's a Pass," which plays during the closing credits, but is the first track on the list. Probably the most cohesive song on the list, it is almost all distorted bass and drums, punctuated by rolling orchestral pads that die down time and again to let the drumming do its thing. It is the heartbeat of Dredd's brand of justice. It is relentless. Put it on and walk in slow motion, as you go to bring judgement to the streets. You will emerge a different person.

Paul Leonard-Morgan is a composer who knows how to build immersive textures and worlds through sound. He does so on the series MI-5 (aka Spooks) and he did so in Limitless. His score for Dredd falls in line with his previous works as it sets itself apart from his previous scores but shares all the characteristics of his voice as a storyteller. Dredd is not your standard studio blockbuster and the score isn't either. Instead of big predictable sounds we get deep and intricate textures that build melodies. From track 1 the music is already pulling you in and building a sonic universe around you.

Dredd is indeed a melodic score so there is no worries for those who don't like ambient textures. While the music is quite textural with many layers, it still builds a very progressive score. The score is loud and industrial with heavy electronics. Many people shun electronic scores, and I don't understand why. Technology is a tool; filmmakers use it to build CGI worlds and creatures, but for some reason traditionalists can't accept it as an instrument. Well go prance in a meadow if you're not ready for the kick-ass score of Dredd. The music is rhythmic and propulsive. There is a constant flow of energy throughout and Paul has a grip on the structure masterfully here. Some of the music has a meditative quality to it and I found it to be trancelike even. You can tell his music has gotten more focused with each new score, and Dredd is a finely tuned machine. The music is structured for heavy action editing in the film, and acts as the blanket that unifies everything rather than a boxing glove that punches on every beat. Since the film has a "slo-mo" theme in the narrative, the music plays on that with time slowing down and speeding up. This creates even more textures that build interesting layers.

Downloaded this while sitting in the theater because the music was so awesome. Those of you who liked the music from Tron will love this.

If you haven't seen the movie, go see it, but set aside $10 to buy the soundtrack. Trust me, you're gonna want it.

One of the best soundtracks I've heard in years, perfectly matched the the crazy visuals of the movie. If you like electronic music (all kinds), you'll like this.

As others have said, this is GREAT driving music. It's pretty techno, which is something I don't usually go for, but it has something else. Something that evokes a feeling of...Dredd. Well, maybe not. But it is very good, and compliments the movie extremely well, and thus changes the atmosphere in my vehicle for the better.

If I had one complaint, it would be that...well, let me just tell the story:

I was driving around one day listening to Dredd. There was a part of one track that got very quiet, so I turned it up... Little did I suspect that the part coming up was COMPLETELY BLAST-TASTIC!!! It wailed out of the speakers so hard, it literally blew my face off, which flew into the back of my Nissan Crew Cab and landed on my niece's lap. Now, imagine, if you will, being eight years old and not only being subjected to extremely loud music, but having your uncle's FACE land right in your LAP. Traumatizing. But, hey, she'll get over it - just as I got over being injured. My face has been re-attached, and I look forward to many more hours of enjoying my Dredd soundtrack, once my eardrums have been replaced.
