Editorial Reviews

Limited Edition 180 Gram Double LP - includes full album download code
Academy Award, Grammy, and Golden Globe-winning composer Hans Zimmer composed the music for this highly anticipated project, joining forces for the first time with director Zack Snyder.
The challenges of creating a Superman score are daunting because Superman is so iconographic, said Snyder. I really feel like what Hans created is perfect. Subtle and stirring, epic and commanding. Honestly, Hans crushed it.
Both the standard and deluxe editions will include the epic track Man of Steel (Hans Original Sketchbook) which clocks in at over 28 minutes long. This exclusive track is performed solely by Zimmer, and allows listeners to experience firsthand his initial experiments with the film's music, which ultimately lay the foundation for the film's final score.

In addition to his orchestral arrangements, Zimmer, no stranger to stepping outside the confines of traditional film scoring, has assembled two unique musical entities to contribute music to Man of Steel. The first, a drum orchestra, which was brought together for the album, is described by soundtrack co-producer Peter Asher as some of the best drummers in the world all playing simultaneously in a space designed for a symphony orchestra using not only rock drum kits but tympani and field drums as well. The membership of this elite assembly consisists of many of today s top musicians including John JR Robinson, Jason Bonham, Josh Freese, Pharrell Williams, Danny Carey, Satnam Ramgotra, Toss Panos, Jim Keltner, Curt Bisquera, Trevor Lawrence Jr., Matt Chamberlain, Ryeland Allison, Bernie Dresel, Vinnie Colaiuta and Sheila E. Their contribution, under Zimmer's musical direction, creates a towering and powerful musical accompaniment to the film.
Another distinctive group the composer assembled was a gathering of eight of music's finest pedal steel guitarists who play classical string section parts. This collective, consisting of Chas Smith, Marty Rifkin, Skip Edwards, Boo Bernstein, Peter Frieberger, Rick Schmidt, JD Maness, John McClung, was described by Asher as, a uniquely new metallic orchestra added it's own distinct and soaring musical stamp to the soundtrack.

Got back from seeing the film this morning and have been listening to the album for a few days. I thought the music itself was very good, and thought it was great after seeing the movie and realizing how well it fit with each and every scene. It really gave all the action and emotion an extra kick in the pants, and Zimmer's propulsive score perfectly fits the character when he's in his element.

My main gripe, however, is the album arrangement. It's bizarre, and a little irritating, that the main highlights (DNA, Terraforming, Krypton's Last, If you Love These People) arrive so early on the album. When I first listened, I was waiting for some spectacular finale that, eleven or so tracks later, never came. Thats because I had already listened to it on track seven, in "if you love these people". It is also rather silly that they put "flying" and "what will you do when you are not saving the world" right beside each other in play order. They are very nearly identical save for a bit brighter feel in the latter song.

So, great music and a wonderful revisiting of the character, but do yourself a favor and create your own playlist. You'll enjoy it better that way.


I saw the movie again yesterday, so I put up a list. I don't think I can make an exact movie-order playlist since I don't have the film in front of me, but I'll do my best.

Updated review for the DTS:X at the end. Thanks for the comments and votes everyone; I appreciate the time you all take to read the review (I know it's a bit long).
Review for the Regular Soundtrack:

Zimmer's "Man of Steel" soundtrack holds a variety of themes and moods in the score. The most obvious theme is the one used for the action scenes. Zimmer has many tracks on the album devoted to the action type music and most songs have at least a small section of action in them. Songs like "Oil Rig" and "I Will Find Him" are almost entirely action cues. The action music focuses on the use of drums. The drums used in the tracks are powerful and sometimes a little overwhelming with Zimmer's fearless and bold songs that could easily raise the tension in any scene just with their sound. Fortunately, each action cue is not a rehash of the theme and each song has it's own unique sound. Secondly, there are several somber or elegant pieces that evoke strong emotions. "Goodbye My Son" is a particularly powerful piece that uses an escalating string and vocal movement reaching toward a climax with a solo violin and a single female humming a tune (think "Pan's Labyrinth" with more in the background). The song is very powerful and really sets a great tone for the loss and hope for the scene. Also, "Krypton's Last" is another song with an emotional pull. The song opens with many instruments playing a sad tune but it quickly moves into a solo violin as it plays a somber theme for Krypton's last moments. It concludes with an action section that is heavy on drums and strings. The third obvious sound is the majestic theme for Superman. The most obvious of these is, "What Are You Going to Do When You Are Not Saving the World" (That's a mouthful).

"Man of Steel" looks to be very different from any previous Superman films, and so it requires a different style of music.

If anyone is right for the project, it's composer Hans Zimmer. Zimmer has been involved with some of my favorite movies in recent years - The Dark Knight, Inception, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Gladiator. With the Dark Knight Trilogy, he successfully created a new tone that was different from any previous Batman music. It appears he has done the same for the Man of Steel. Everybody loves John Williams' theme for the original Superman films - to try and replicate it would be a mistake. So Zimmer does the only sensible thing, and goes in a completely different direction with his score.

Every track on this album has something unique to offer; there is great variety, and that makes for a pleasant listening experience. There is plenty of the intense epic music that Zimmer is known for (those who have accused him of being too bombastic in the past will no doubt have the same complaint here). But there's also plenty of emotion too - some of my favorite cues are the softer ones.

As a bonus, you get a 28-minute track called "Hans' Original Sketchbook", which features some of Zimmer's key musical concepts, plus some early ideas and a bit of music unused in the film (although much of it sounds like pieces from other tracks on the album).

Also, for those wondering where the music used in the film's trailer can be found, it's the track titled "What Are You Going to Do When You Are Not Saving the World?" - Track #17 (or Track #1 of Disc 2 for the limited edition CD).

The superhero genre is full of great music, and the "Man of Steel" soundtrack is right up there with the best of them. I highly recommend this album!
