Editorial Reviews

This summer, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes star Trek Into Darkness. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew. Composer Michael Giacchino- an Academy Award winner for his score for Up- reunites with di rector J.J. Abrams to steer the Enterprise through its darkest territory yet. Paramount will open STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS on over 3500 screens on May 17. Music Composed by Michael Giacchino (Mission: Impossible- Ghost Protocol, Star Trek, The lncredibles)

Giacchino's score for Into Darkness is one of the things about this movie that are noticeably better than the 2009 production. But WOW: the music that plays during the End Titles, which I've enjoyed both times I've watched the movie in a theatre, is missing entirely from this CD. Instead, we have "Star Trek Main Theme" which is labeled as containing music from the original series, but really only contains the opening bars of that Alexander Courage theme. I assume that Varese was unwilling to pay royalties for the full Alexander Courage theme, which Giacchino integrated and arranged beautifully. Well, we should all cry "FOUL" -- especially Mr. Giacchino, who obviously takes great care in threading original franchise themes into his original work (no one has ever done it better). I would choose this CD in a heartbeat over the 2009 soundtrack album because the music has more range of feeling and I like the new. But I'm very disappointed at the unconventional decision not to include the End Titles music.

NOTE: There are plot spoilers in this review that were unavoidable as I wanted to sensibly talk about the music and its context within, and impact upon, the film, If you haven't seen the film yet, I might suggest waiting to read this until you have.

The second of director J.J. Abrams' newly-revamped "alternate timeline" Star Trek movies is Star Trek Into Darkness, one of the most anticipated films of the early summer months of 2013. Set one year after the events of the last Star Trek film, Into Darkness finds Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and the crew of the Starship Enterprise - First Officer Spock (Zachary Quinto), Chief Medical Officer Bones McCoy (Karl Urban), Chief Engineer Scott (Simon Pegg), Navigation Officer Sulu (John Cho), Communications Officer Uhura (Zoe Saldana) and Ensign Chekov (Anton Yelchin) - on a mission to observe a primitive humanoid race on a distant planet. When one of the crew members finds his life in jeopardy Kirk is forced to violate the Starfleet prime directive of non-interference in order to rescue him, and upon his return to Earth is demoted by his commanding officer, Admiral Pike (Bruce Greenwood). However, things suddenly change when a mysterious terrorist named John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch) attacks a Starfleet installation and murders several high ranking officers, before fleeing to Kronos, the home world of the brutal and warlike Klingon race. Given permission to go after Harrison by Starfleet Admiral Marcus (Peter Weller), and with a cache of prototype photon torpedos on board, Kirk and the crew sets off on a covert mission... but before long doubts about Harrison's identity, and his motivations, begin to surface.

Format: MP3 Music Verified Purchase
One of the things that sets the Star Trek scores apart for other big movie scores is that composer Michael Giacchino isn't afraid to have fun with the music. And for as dark and serious as the new Trek film has been marketed (it is called "Into Darkness" after all), the score still has a lot of excitement and lightheartedness to it. While many composers rely too much on pounding percussion in these types of action movies, Giacchino doesn't go there. It seems he really believes that his themes can do the job - and he's right.

If you liked the last "Star Trek" soundtrack, the good news is that "Star Trek Into Darkness" builds off of that one. An example can be heard at the very opening of the soundtrack; fans will notice that the logo music is a variant of the logo music from the last "Star Trek". And there are many other themes from the previous score that are re-used in this score. This is a very good thing because the first soundtrack was fantastic - If you don't yet own that one, I highly recommend it: Star Trek. I like when there is a musical continuity in movie franchises; just as you want the characters and story to fit well with previous installments of a given franchise, you also want the music to pay homage and reference what has come before.

But "Into Darkness" isn't just a rehashing of old themes. There are some very original and unique tracks as well. An example is "The Kronos Wartet", which features some vocals. "London Calling" is another very nice track that seems to be a departure from anything we've heard in Star Trek before.

Overall, this is a highly recommended soundtrack and it's worthy of multiple listens.

I have never had such a bizarre love/hate relationship with any film composer as I do with Michael Giacchino. There are times when I listen to his music and my jaw goes slack because it's so breathtaking... and then there are times when I grit my teeth and go: "What on earth is this idiotic racket?" I was willing to completely write him off (something I hardly ever am willing to do with ANY composer, simply because I understand the demands of the job) - that is, until his entries for the '09 "Star Trek" film proved he can write some tremendous themes, and his scores for "John Carter" and "Super 8" proved that he found the 'on' switch somewhere back there.

The score for the 2009 "Star Trek" film was a very dichotomous mixture of insanely good themes ("Enterprising Young Men," etc.) and his - as I call it - 'exploding circus' action music (aka, "Nailing The Kelvin") which is very irritating to listen to on its own, and does not capture the 'organic' action music feel of many other composers. Because music is such a huge part of the Star Trek franchise - remember 1982's "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" was Horner's first big break, and he did wonderful work there, or remember Jerry Goldsmith and Cliff Eidelman's entries - I was somewhat disappointed with the first score, while simultaneously being enthralled with certain elements. As a Star Trek fan and a film score buff, I was very, very curious to see what Giacchino did with the new score.

First things first: the label's plan to do a double-release of the score (first on digital mp3, before the movie opened, and then on CD yesterday) was profoundly irritating. I like to pick up film scores before I see the movies they go to, and this 'forced' me to buy it twice (!!!) in order to listen to it before I saw this movie.

Topic From this Discussion
Vinyl release date?
We are wondering the same thing. It would be great if someone could provide an update on the vinyl release. We are holding out on purchasing this score until we get the vinyl. If it has been canceled, it should be removed from the web site so we could arrange other means to purchase it.
