Iron Man is Djawadi's biggest solo effort to date and boy is it one whopper of an action score. I've been listening to his work as a composer since he started with Hans Zimmer and have to say that I've enjoyed his music immensely over the years. I was so relieved when I saw Ramin Djawadi on this project and not John Debney. The moment I saw his name I knew we were going to get an all-out action score that was going to fit perfectly.

Looking back at other superhero scores you can't deny the brilliance found from Danny Elfman with his scores to Batman, Spider-Man and Hulk. You also can't forget the super heroic themes that John Williams came up with for Superman. However, if we ended up with the same old score for Iron Man I was surely going to be disappointed. Hans Zimmer revamped the superhero scene with James Newton Howard on their score for Batman Begins (which Djawadi also worked on) by bringing the electronic/orchestral sound to fuel a whole new epic sound not really heard in superhero films before.

Djawadi was not dealing with the same material as say Batman Begins and he knew that. Tony Stark is a playboy with a rock star personality so we get a rock star score. Simple rhythms are amplified with a heavy electric guitar riffs and backed with an orchestral sound that is seamlessly fused into the score in a very Zimmeresque fashion. Good ol' Hans Zimmer served as Executive Score Producer on this project and helped guide Djawadi through the process of tackling a huge project like this as the name composer.

There is nothing about this score that is too terribly complex. Djawadi shows some versatility with cues like "Vacation's Over" that has a more inspirational and emotional evoking feel to it.

I agree with the other reviews about the Iron Man score by Ramin Djawadi. I have seen Iron Man 3 times and I love that movie and I had to get the soundtrack to it. I am enjoying the audio CD of the soundtrack to Iron Man.
But at the end of Iron Man there is an updated instrumental version of Black Sabbath's Iron Man. This is playing with an animated sequence during the closing credits of the movie. I was very disappointed this instrumental version of Black Sabbath's Iron Man was not on the CD. This should have been cut track 19 but for some strange reason track 19 is the Iron Man song from the old cartoons. What happened to that track from the movie? Is it going to be added to a newer version of the soundtrack in the future? This instrumental version of Black Sabbath's Iron Man has also been in many of the trailers to Iron man leading up to the movie and I think it sticks that it was not on the CD.
It should have been on it.

Having seen the film, I was very eager to get the original soundtrack to it; in my opinion, other than with "X-3: The Last Stand" and the "Blade" trilogy few of the soundtracks for Marvel's films have been particularly noteworthy versus the now-iconic John Williams scores for the "Superman" films and Danny Elfman's moody "Batman" soundtracks.
"Iron Man" has a soundtrack that easily matches the film itself in terms of being surprisingly well-done and epic; per the expected "Iron Man" tune from the '70s the entire album has a strong heavy metal / rock motif to it which is fitting, yet gets very dramatic when needed. I was especially surprised, after hearing a modern version of it several times during the "Tony Stark, Playboy" scenes, that the very last selection on the CD is the original "Iron Man" theme from the old 1966 "Marvel Superheroes" TV show; hopefully, now that Marvel is now personally handling its movies, such "easter eggs" will continue to pop up. Grade A+, Outstanding

Ramin Djawadi did an excellent soundtrack for Iron Man. The only reason this gets 4 stars and not 5 is that the first trailer for the movie had a 5 star soundtrack with an absolutly perfect use of Iron Man by Black Sabbath. This song is NOT on this CD. I don't know what possesed them not to have the Iron Man song playing in the actual movie until the ending credits or to leave it out of the CD. I only hope someone releases a directors cut on the DVD with the Black Sabbath music in the film where it belongs. I say buy this CD and then go get a copy of the Black Sabbath song so you can acutally put together an IRONMAN CD like its supposed to be.

There has often been dispute amongst soundtrack collectors as to the merits of mostly electronic scores. Gems such as "National Treasure" and "Con Air" have proven that electronics can not only be effective, but downright awesome... This album does nothing for either argument. On the one hand, there are enough heroic motifs and heavy guitar riffs to please fans of the film, but not enough musical intrigue or creativity to warrant a purchase for the rest of us. I give this album three stars for it's ability to entertain and rock the listening crowd. : )

Outstanding inspirational music. High energy.

The first Iron Man movie was a favorite for superheroes everywhere. Jarvis rocks. This soundtrack, almost all without distracting vocals, is perfect background music for extreme programming. Snap it up while it's still available.

The one exception is the inclusion of Suicidal Tendencies's "Institutionalized", an obscure piece of mind garbage. This paranoid thrash punk rant *accurately* portrays, for almost four long minutes, what it feels like to be inside the head of a schizophrenic whiner with anger management problems. I am quite serious about the schizophrenic part. If you want to learn why people who can't think straight and don't control their energy have lots of problems, this is a great study experience to have. Once. My only question is, WHAT WAS THE MUSIC DIRECTOR THINKING? It's like inviting Eminem to a Hulk Hogan promotional event. The market audience is COMPLETELY different. Here's an easy shibboleth for you... powerful, uplifting, coherent, heroic music that makes you feel good about yourself, your situation, and those around you... versus victimized, severely depressing, incoherent, loser music that makes you hate yourself, your situation, and those around you. Gosh, which should we include on this CD? I haven't seen such a debacle since Sony remade Godzilla, made him female, and cloned him a hundred times because being unique wasn't good enough for them. Fire the music director, and fire the person who hired him. Take responsibility for the songs that you play inside your head. Rip and re-burn the CD, after buying it, with this song not on it. And get back to the sweet, kick-ass, background music of Ramin Djawadi.

(As noted in other reviews, there is also no excuse for not including the Black Sabbath instrumental remix that plays during the credit crawl. I mean, it's the triumphant title capper piece, right? Sheesh.)

Songs not on Soundtrack
Well, not actually. It's a bit of both. "Institutionalized" wasn't created for the film. But most of it is original, but so was most of the music in the film. AC/DC has licensing issues, and I'm not sure about Black Sabbath's "Iron Man".

Iron Man sounds very similar to 21st Century Schizoid Man
Say What?!?! LOL! You're talking about the score to the first Iron Man film right? I own a copy and do not hear King Crimson in it (me being a fan of King Crimson, would have noticed this right off). Maybe I need to give it another listen?
