Editorial Reviews

If Danny Elfman the film composer seems ever farther from Elfman the former cult rock icon, his work on director Ang Lee's adaptation of the Marvel Comics legend suggests he may be reinventing himself yet again. While he seems to have largely abandoned his melodic interests somewhere south of Sleepy Hollow, the diverse concerns--ranging from bright, propulsive rhythms and repetitive wind phrases through ethnic modalities of (deliberately) undetermined origin and delicate pastoral touches--suggest a textural mindset more akin to Herrmann, but informed by the incandescent, hypnotic cadences and sonorities of Steve Reich and other post-modernists. While he occasionally lapses into the overbearing tribal drum sturm und drang that may have made some listeners of his overwrought Planet of the Apes score yearn for an umbrella, they are at least leavened here by slashing horns and Middle Eastern vocal flourishes. Subtle electronic sound washes ebb and flow throughout, serving up a percolating tension the composer gleefully punctuates with blasts of brass and thunderous percussion. This isn't your mother's--or Lou Ferrigno's--Hulk, and Elfman has done a fine job of musically propelling the big green fella into the 21st century. Also features the Guns N' Roses-meets-Stone Temple Pilots line-up of Weiland, Slash, Duff McKagen, Matt Sorum, and Dave Kushner performing the angular riff-rock of "Set Me Free." --Jerry McCulley

Still, the music seemed to lack the impact that it had in the movie.
Dustin Logan
I love Danny Elfman, he is one of the best composers out there unlike james horner and others, his soundtracks do not resemble other soundtracks he's done in the past.

One thing is to bad they did put the original theme in it like they did for spider-man. that woul of made a great eddition.

No stranger to superheroes and comic books, Danny launched the the most fertile period of his career with Batman, through to the early '90s with Darkman, Dick Tracy, Batman Returns and the theme for the television series The Flash. He would later collaborate with Darkman director Sam Raimi for 2002's biggest financial success, Spider-Man, making everyone at Marvel notice. The Hulk proves the Elfman formula is still viable, as his score is brilliant, matching the scope and tone of the picture, proving to be progressive, often exhilirating and touched with Elfman's unique brand of tragedy.
The score is anchored by an often-repeated theme that is stated quickly in the magnificent "Main Titles" "Main Titles", first as a scientific-sounding 6-note descending motif for woodwinds and then later developed in the brass and strings ("Hulk Out!", "A Man Again"). Like Spider-Man, it's not an immediately obvious main theme, but it is there if you want to find it. This main "Science" theme is then put through it's paces in "Prologue", an extension of ideas from the "Main Titles", and the first appearance of the female vocals performed by Natacha Atlas. They do the work intended, adding an emotional gravitas to an otherwise loud and rambunctious summer movie blockbuster score, which is something increasingly rare.
Action elements are surprisingly rare here, "Captured" introduces a bevy of percussion rythms overtop vocals and an Eastern-like string rythm. This might be the first time that Danny Elfman has written anything remotely resembling a Hans Zimmer-like action cue(!). "Hulk Out!" features the first real, balls-to-the-wall action scoring, with towering brass grunts overtop urgent strings coupled with frenetic percussion, concluding with a full-scale rendition of the main theme.

The soundtrack for the Hulk is a magnificent, inspired piece of art that fits the film perfectly. I've seen people compare it to (Elfman's other soundtrack) Spiderman, which I find odd since Hulk the film is nothing like Spiderman. It's not a superhero story as much as a unique drama injected with something more (in this case science fiction).
The soundtrack therefore isn't a standard 'superhero' soundtrack (like Spidey, Batman, and The Flash: all Elfman creation).
From the slow-paced music to the mid-eastern touch, this package is a superb showcase for Danny Elfman's talent

Yes, there is alot of percussion which is a staple of Elfman, but in writing the music for a their super-hero franchise, Elfman breaks new ground. Rather than the dark flourishes of Batman & the high flying theme of Spider-Man, The Hulk is a dark score filled witth exotic sounds that actually capture the filmakers vision and provide an interesting listening experience for the listener. I gave this score 3 stars not because its bad, but because its not to my personal taste, and I would not necessarily recommend it. However, if you a collector of Danny Elfman music or super-hero scores, then feel no guilt when you purchase this unique score.

Elfman constantly runs a balancing act of continuing the "Elfmanisms" that have made him famous, but also reinventing himself, often at the expense of his own ego.
i think Hulk is a case in point...
the majority of the score is very subtle for a comic book movie -it's primary function is to support the film, but it also takes risks.
and, in my opinion, those risks are handled effectively and pay off.
> he retains some of the ethnic / middle-eastern leanings that the original composer (Mychael Danna) had intended (and he HAS recieved criticism for this- at least as far as film music nerds are concerned) and he avoids a catchy hero theme, ala what he did for Batman or Dick Tracy
- seems like this is what gets him in trouble the most with reviewers -
instead of heralding fanfares, and broad melodic gestures, Elfman weaves in and around the action, he doesn't try and steal the show.
However, there IS thematic material - and it's strong... it's woven delicately, and it grows on me with each listen...
Elfman has integrity, in spite of the pressures and sell-out potential of the money-making movie machine.
The Truth Revealed is probably my favorite cue>> a bittersweet tone, at once sad and beautiful... very effective in the film.
also, Hulk's Freedom - as the Hulk leaps over mountains the vocals (performed by Natacha Atlas) soar with him, accompanied by strong brass and thundering percussion (ala Planet of the Apes and Proof of Life). the effect is inspiring... Danny Elfman is one of the finest film composers in the industry, and he's on top-form with The Hulk.
I'm looking forward to his next Burton project, Big Fish.

I just bought the Hulk score, and it's your typically awesome Danny Elfman style with some majorly green muscle behind it. The score is breathtaking and captures the savage beast, mixed with a touch of human essence, only to break through with some smashing beats when you think it's safe to stop for air.
A must for any movie score collector, or Hulk fan!!!

Come on it's a wonderful sound track but no one even talks about Natacha Atlas's great vocals on much of the sound track!
Wake up!
