Editorial Reviews

Original score to the 2013 motion picture composed by Steve Jablonsky (Transformers, Battleship, Gangster Squad). Based on a true story, Pain & Gain follows a group of bodybuilders who engaged in a campaign of kidnapping, extortion and murder in Florida. The movie was directed by Michael Bay and stars Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne The Rock Johnson.

I enjoyed this soundtrack, and highly recommend it. Whether you like the movie or not, I think it would be difficult to say that the music was not effective or that this soundtrack is not a great listen.

The score compliments the movie perfectly. The feeling that you get listening to this score gives you a good sense of the Miami locations and of the bodybuilder culture that's presented in the film. At times the music is as cool as director Michael Bay's visual style, and at other times the music is as strange and bizarre as the characters/story itself.

The composer is Steve Jablonsky, who has done some very good work in the last few years (including Michael Bay's "The Island" and the "Transformers" series). A lot of the music for "Pain and Gain" has an understated quality, which is a switch from Jablonsky's usual style - but it works very well on this album and makes it a more pleasant listen than some of his other scores.

Steve Jablonsky's collaborations with Michael Bay is one of the most notable Director/Composer team-ups in the industry. He started out doing additional music for Hans Zimmer and friends including Bay films Armageddon and Pearl Harbor. Clearly there was a spark. Bay and Mark Mancina had a falling out right before Bad Boys 2, it seems Hans Zimmer and Bay didn't exactly click which saw Hans siding with Jerry Bruckheimer after the divorce in partnership after Pearl Harbor. Jablonsky seemed to be the one who truly knew what Michael Bay wanted in a composer. Ever since The Island he has been Bay's name composer. Bay's films have always had big, bold and thematic music and Pain & Gain is no different. However, Jablonsky truly takes a different approach than what you would expect from him. The problem for Jablonsky is that after Transformers thats all people wanted from him. So any project he took on I'm sure temp-tracked with Transformers. His last truly great score outside of the Transformers franchise was indeed The Island, but here Michael Bay let his composer craft from scratch. Pain & Gain is an immensely great score with an amazingly textured electronic soundscape that invokes dread, tension and uneasiness yet manages to make it feel significant in a dreamlike fashion. Whatever comedy that's in the film only appears onscreen as Jablonsky completely bypasses the funny to get to the core.

While I stated that this score is bold that doesn't mean that it's as big and loud as his other scores for Michael Bay. The score can get loud, but there is no grandiose themes that will give you goosebumps. Some of the melodies may give you chills though. The opening motif sets the stage and it really only pops up one other time in its full form.

For a serious movie....Wahlberg and Rock give great performances....backed by this sometimes warm feeling with a twist of loneliness music
