5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, great score August 22, 2010
By Pen
Format:Audio CD
This score harkens back to the good old days of action film music. Like Jerry Goldsmith in the 1980s, Tyler writes a powerful set of melodies that are exciting and engaging. The scene with Mickey Rourke talking about his regrets "Confession" is a great change up with its melancholy feel. One of my favorite tracks this year. The action from Tyler is fantastic of course. I hope there is a sequel in the works because no one blows stuff up better than Stallone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Soundtrack. December 14, 2010
By HAMLET
Format:Audio CD
This is a terrific soundtrack. The music is pulse-pounding, giving you the exact same adrenaline rush as in the film, if not more. One of the best tracks is "Warriors." Brian Tyler (CBS' new version of "Hawaii Five-0") provides the action-packed musical rush behind the on-screen fun. "Everyone of us is Expendable."

I am a hero to my father for getting him this. It is full of the awesome music I was raised on and my father was so thrilled with the music selection that he embarrassed me by singing to it in the theater. He was so thrilled to finally get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A new compsoer to keep your eye on July 12, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard Brian Tyler's work on my Fimucite DVD, the Biomechanical Symphony. It had his closing theme for AVP:R. I was instantly hooked. Then I watched Terra Nova, and his Opening Theme for this show was SO beautiful, not to mention the music for the show was outstanding, have it on my Amazon MP3. Then I watched an interview of Tyler on youtube in which I learn that he is a sort of protégé of Jerry Goldsmith, my favorite composer. Right then I started buying Brian Tyler's music. This was my first purchase and it did not disappoint. The Opening Theme is very powerful and the power continues for the whole movie. The music is not slow and I would not be drinking coffee as you listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brian Tyler ROCKS October 23, 2012
By Richard
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Film composer Brian Tyler once again flexes his music muscles in this action film.It ranks right up there with his very best orchestral scores. Great central theme. Rousing action. Frantic pacing. Looking forward to the next installment.

Format:Audio CD
Sylvester Stallone continues his collaboration with Brian Tyler with The Expendables. This will be Tyler's third score for Stallone as a director except this time it will be for original material. The last two outings were for the Rocky and Rambo franchises so of course Tyler had previous material to draw from. This time around he had a clean canvas. The end result is a decent, but very average action score. The Expendables is pure action entertainment so I wasn't expecting anything more than that in the score. However, pure action scores are the most fun to listen to in my opinion. The action scores of the 90's are what I grew up on, and this score definitely draws on that.

The sound of the score is extremely reminiscent of the Zimmer sound of the mid to late 90's. Tyler's score has some great melodies, but I never felt like the score packed any intensity. The reason why Zimmer's scores were so memorable was because they were incredibly intense and were not afraid to take center stage. Traditionalists will argue that a score should never draw attention to itself, and while I agree with that I also feel that these are different circumstances. If I'm watching an over the top action movie then I want an over the top action score. I want the music to explode louder than the sound effects. I want the melodies to shake, rattle and roll. With that being said that is where this score's weaknesses lie.

The score is entertaining but lacking any impact on the audience. When it was over I didn't feel like I was taken on a journey. This is an entertaining score, but I just don't ever see myself listening to this score over and over again. It's a decent action effort, but in the end it fails to demand the attention it should have demanded from the beginning.

The soundtrack was not what I was expecting, as it was missing the one song I truly wanted. However, the music is good.

This is a Motion Picture Score, background music.
This contains no songs, not the Soundtrack.
If you like background music you want this.

This was not at all as I expected. I thought it would include the really cool 80's songs. It didn't.

The title of this should be "background music" - not a "Soundtrack". These are not the songs I wanted to hear when I ordered this CD.

Should have previewed the CD. Nothing but instrumental music. I figured it would have some of the songs played in the movie. Didn't like it.
