Editorial Reviews

Original soundtrack to the 2011 major motion picture composted by Michael Giacchino. The IMF is shut down when it's implicated in a global terrorist bombing plot. Ghost Protocol is initiated and Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his rogue new team (including Paula Patton and Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner) must go undercover to clear their organization's name. No help, no contact, off the grid. You have never seen a mission grittier and more intense than this.

Giacchino is one of the hot composers now in Hollywood, hot off an Oscar for his wonderful score for "Up". He has a special relationship with J.J. Abrams, and his Lost and Alias scores have some of the most consistently lovely and interesting scoring that I have heard in a television show. All of this had me quite excited about the Ghost Protocol score, and I couldn't wait to hear it. It is good--but honestly, it is not as original as I had hoped for. I heard an interview in which Giacchino discussed his interest in including a lot of regional instruments and sounds as the fabric of the score. To be fair, this has been accomplished, but the resultant score does not sound as original as I had hoped. Ultimately, this is a solid action movie soundtrack, with great strings, good percussion, and an exciting throbbing beat. The famous and fantastic theme from Mission Impossible is blended well throughout, and the actual theme itself is very stylishly done. The redo of the theme itself is definitely a highlight, and is perhaps the most enjoyable iteration yet. I've listened to this daily since I got it, as I had hoped that it would grow on me. It has, and I think that I am going to get more pleasure out of this in the future. I look forward to more scores from this exciting composer, but I will probably be heading back to my Lost scores in the mean time. Recommended for fans of MI and for fans of Giacchino; I'm not sure that much of this music will survive outside of context, however.

Michael Giacchino has the rare honor of being the only composer to compose consecutive Mission: Impossible films. Danny Elfman kicked things off, Hans Zimmer followed and J.J. Abrams brought Giacchino to the table for the third outing. What is shared here is that Michael Giacchino is both Brad Bird's and J.J. Abrams go to composer. So I have to imagine Ghost Protocol to almost be like a buddy cop film behind the camera. Giacchino does a fantastic job with his second Mission: Impossible film. The difference here is that this is just full out fun instead of the third score that was taken so seriously.

Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible is more along the lines of a James Bond film than any of the previous entries, and Giacchino has plenty of fun with it this time. While the third film took itself very seriously and was an intense experience I felt like this time around I could relax a bit more. We knew we were going to see Ethan Hunt kick some ass, and the music matches that. We also get a lot more world flavor. Since we go globetrotting Giacchino infuses some pretty rad tracks with local flavors. "Mood India" is just plain awesome and "A Man, A Plan, A Code, Dubai" made me feel as if Lawrence of Arabia was going to ride in at any moment. The action cues are executed perfectly and are constructed with extreme precision. The builds and the drops all play excellently with the editing. The score feels animated and you can map the picture out pretty well by listening to the score. It's very rare to get an action score like this anymore especially fully orchestral. Giacchino makes the orchestra feel so alive and propulsive. I enjoy some good synth now and then like everyone else, but Giacchino's style makes it seem like synth is now obsolete.

This is a heck of a fun CD listening experience. Much like the movie itself, this score , while having some tremendous, aggressive action, is lighter in tone overall. The fun take on the MI theme in "Light The Fuse" sets the tone for a rollicking fun ride. There's some great over the top choir for the Kremlin scenes, and middle Eastern pastiche for the India scenes. Aside from the action, Giacchino has really always excelled at more emotional writing, and he writes a lovely, wistful ending cue for the movie's bittersweet finale. Great stuff all around, action - suspense - emotion - all wrapped up in some really great looking package design from Varese.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !

The movie is great, much better than the lackluster (but still good) "Mission: Impossible III." That being said, I enjoyed the music for "Ghost Protocol" more as well. I'm still not a fan of recordist Dan Wallin's awful mixing, but at least he separates the brass instruments this time around instead of confining them to the center. The orchestra still sounds like it was recorded in a tiny garage, though, and I pray one day composer Michael Giacchino ditches Wallin and goes with a better engineer.

It's a shame that a good score with many orchestral elements and ethnical flavours ends up listening so bad due to the improper mixing process. Releases like this make me realise how important the mixing process is for the final overall listening experience. Michael is well known for composing using a live orchestra rather than synthesisers but the whole magnitude and scope of the orchestra is completely "Lost". Since this is part of the joy for any music fan, it is important to mention that a very good effort from the composer has been wiped away by the mixing: we can only imagine how fun this could have sound.

This musical score enhanced each scene in the movie, and the movie is fantastic.The music is bold, melodic,energizing and quite beautiful.I enjoyed hearing the role that each instrument played in a specific part of the movie.The score, in my opinion, is timeless-( modern,yet classical).And what can I say about the original MI theme, which is played on this CD in the arrangement that is so familiar,--perfection! Great work, Michael Giacchino.
