A Li'l Slice of Soviet Russia
on July 21, 2010
Gonna be honest: As with the first score, I only really purchased the Iron Man 2 score for a single track. In the case of this score, it's the first track: Ivan's Metamorphosis (the first Iron Man's primary track that got me was "Driving With the Top Down"). Metamorphosis is a beautifully industrial track that absolutely drips Soviet overtones (from about 3:29 onward). It sets the theme for the entire score, and I've gotta say that even though Ramin Djawadi did a great job with the first film's score, John Debney is no slouch, and definitely doesn't disappoint in his latest masterpiece.
Only thing I can really say about this is the following: Don't confuse this musical SCORE with the AC/DC-centric SOUNDTRACK. As with the score for Transformers by Steve Jablonski, they're most definitely two entirely different animals.
