Editorial Reviews

The OBLIVION Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features new music by Anthony Gonzalez of M83 and Joseph Trapanese. The score features a hybrid of the traditional M83 electronic sound combined with sweeping orchestral elements. The soundtrack has sixteen score cues along with a brand new song "Oblivion" by M83 featuring Norwegian singer songwriter Susanne Sundfor, which is the end title for the film.

Oblivion is director Joseph Kosinski's second feature film. His first film was Tron Legacy. Between the two films, it seems that Kosinski is not only talented when it comes to visual style, but he also seems to make unique and inspired choices when it comes to film scoring. Fans of film music will no doubt recall Daft Punk's excellent score for Tron Legacy - easily one of the more memorable aspects of that film.

For Oblivion, Kosinski has called upon the French electronic band M83 to provide the score. I'll admit that I had never heard of M83 prior to hearing the news that they'd be working Oblivion, but a quick sampling of their previous albums shows that they are very talented and I can now call myself a fan of their work.

The Oblivion score is wonderful, by far the best score I have heard this year. The classical film score style mixed with electronic sounds yields amazing results. The music is a large part of what makes the movie a really fun experience - it's most effective when the music swells as Tom Cruise pilots his bubble ship through the clouds or rides his bike across the vast landscapes. I've singled out a few of my favorite tracks below, although this is one soundtrack where I would highly suggest you purchase the entire album. The whole thing is fantastic from start to finish.

If there's a flaw here, it would be that at certain points I feel there is a lack of originality - one track sounds very similar to a cue from Tron Legacy, and several tracks are also reminiscent of work by Hans Zimmer. But this is disappointing only to the mind, not the ears - after all, is sounding like Zimmer the worst thing in the world?

The final track, an original song featuring Susanne Sundfør, is a pleasant way to end the album.

Director Joseph Kosinski has two films on his resume: one was scored by Daft Punk, the other by M83. Clearly that's a dynamic that he finds very interesting, and it pays off quite well. Each of those scores is a significant departure for their respective bands' typical musical stylings, but each is nevertheless excellent. While I overall prefer Daft Punk's Tron Legacy soundtrack, M83's work here is also great, with quite a few fantastic pieces. "Waking Up," "StarWaves," "Earth 2077," and "Oblivion" are my favorites, and there are a few more excellent tracks that certainly earn the album's full price (and certainly the current $5 promotional price).

Interestingly, while Daft Punk was not involved with this score, there are at least a few songs on it that sound like they could've come straight out of Tron Legacy. This would seem to suggest that Kosinski is a fairly hands-on director when it comes to his films' scores, although the similarities could just be coincidental. At any rate, M83's work here isn't quite as consistently great as Daft Punk's work on Tron, and there are more than a few tracks that don't quite distinguish themselves, and sort of amount to "filler," but those are definitely outweighed by the standout tracks.

Long story short: if you liked the Tron Legacy score, you'll like this one as well. If you like M83, you'll almost definitely like this score (especially the final song, which may be a little more akin to their standard music than the rest of the album). I strongly recommend it.
