MUSIC REVIEW # 37 Skylander's Giants

If you are a player of video games and especially love the adventure ones, you probably don't pay too much detailed attention to the music in the background. But just like its original, Skylanders-Giants has a score that actually stimulates your adventures to a magical toe-tapping orchestral rhythm.

Scottish composer and Grammy Award winning Lorne Balfe who has composed the background scores for such games as Rango, Crysis 2, Assassins Creed Revelations and the original Skylanders- Spyro's Adventures has achieved an even more energetic and `feel-good' score for Skylander- Giants. His other credits include producing such scores as Sherlock Holmes and Inception.

Your mission is to find treasures, special hats and defeat the all-evil KAOS in dozens of lands. As each section of the adventure unfolds the orchestral accompaniment of Balfe's score sends you running, battling or into very mysterious areas and you are cautiously searching your way through each colorful adventure. Lorne Balfe does an amazing job at bringing fun, fancy and magicality into an extremely melodi yet vibrant soundtrack.

Track by track: From the opening cue called `Giants' that swings with passion and power and the rush of a grand adventure of fun and magic. `Junkyard Isles' has the fanciful rhythms and beats that make you want to dance with almost a Keltic swing. `Rumbletown' has the sweet sting of a marching and mysterious rhythm that makes the mind think, `look before you leap!'

Now, `Cutthroat Carnival' has the fancy fair of a darker and yet perkier tone that will make you swing in rhythm to the beat. I enjoy the string arrangements on this one and the underscoring of the brass and tympani.

I absolutely loved the first Skylanders score by Lorne. It created a wonderful world of adventure with just the right amount of awe and wonder. It had a sense of playfulness, but the emotions that came through felt real. There was no fluffiness to it and it was in no way a "kiddy" game score. He was able to paint a wonderful world sonically and he does so even more here with Giants. Giants amplifies everything he did with Spyro's Adventure to a new level. The execution is fantastic and the melodies are truly wonderful. Skylanders: Giants is an immersive adventure that will fully engross you as a listener with beautiful soundscapes.

The first thing that I noticed is that the sore has a swashbuckling feel to it and a bit of celtic music infused into it. I got chills from "Cutthroat Carnival". The music builds and builds to wonderful fruition in most tracks and you never feel like you're listening to background score to a game. This score actively pulls in the listener so you are actually feeling something while playing the game. At times the music will create a sense of discovery as you move through the journey, and that adds a layer of curiosity that the listener feels they should act upon. You want to discover something wonderful and the music delivers that wonder. I just enjoyed every moment of the score. It put a smile on my face and made we want to go out on a hike to conquer a mountain or something like that. Lorne's arrangement of Hans Zimmer's theme in "Aerial Attack" is fantastic as well. It connects the score to the first one and is a nice thematic marker. The score has some well executed action tracks for the closing of the album and we end in a sense of wonder just as we began.

Lorne has been making his mark in the video game world an impressive one.

Learned about this artist on MPR's Top Score podcast. The album gets even better near the end. "Drill-X's Big Rig" is a great track.

Doesn't have any of the best tracks from the game. Come on this is the 21st century. Why are Activision so mean. If you buy this you are not getting even a quarter of the music from the game. Look at YouTube skylandergiantsmusicc channel to see what you are missing.

This is one the most amazing soundtracks I think I'll ever here. Not in the epic sense, but in the sense of true beauty and amazing creativity. Every track is special. Don't take my word for it, just play the first track and you'll see what i mean.
