Product Description

From Marvel Music, the ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK to the smash-hit Super Hero blockbuster THE INCREDIBLE HULK!

Marvel Studios and Universal Pictures present the most incredible Super Hero movie of the summer: THE INCREDIBLE HULK. Hot on the heels of the highly successful IRON MAN, Marvel Studios tells the story of physicist Bruce Banner, a man on the run with a secret that could destroy us all, or be our only hope. When this mild-mannered man loses control, his rage unleashes the monstrous creature known to the world as the Hulk. But in his effort to cure himself of his condition, he has unwittingly delivered the key to his transformation into the hands of an enemy that wants to use it against him. Now, our only hope is for the Hulk to accept his monstrous fate and embrace his heroic destiny.

From director Louis Leterrier (THE TRANSPORTER) and starring Edward Norton (THE ILLUSIONIST), this pulse-pounding film is enhanced by a truly remarkable score from critically acclaimed composer Craig Armstrong. After gaining the attention of film-goers everywhere for his work on WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE'S ROMEO + JULIET with internationally acclaimed director Baz Luhrmann, Armstrong re-teamed with Luhrmann on MOULIN ROUGE and was showered with awards including AFI's Composer of the Year, a Golden Globe for Best Original Score of the Year and a BAFTA for Achievement in Film Music. Mr. Armstrong also won a Grammy for his score in the Oscar-winning RAY. His film work also includes ELIZABETH: THE GOLDEN AGE, Oliver Stone's WORLD TRADE CENTER, and more. Mr. Armstrong has also worked with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Craig Armstrong recorded his first Classical record for EMI Classics France with the BBC Symphony Orchestra for a 2008 release, which includes a violin concerto for Clio Gould. Mr. Armstrong also teaches at the Royal Academy of Music London. He now brings his considerable talents to the newest release from Marvel Studios.

This moving score features the memorable music that accompanies the films eye-popping fights and its jaw-dropping climax. This score also contains a treasured piece from the Hulk's history: "The Lonely Man" theme as interpreted by Armstrong. Originally used in the popular television show, this song harkens back to the conflict and isolation felt by the film's central hero, a theme echoed throughout the Hulk's 40-year history.

A popular character in comic books, television and now film, The Incredible Hulk stands poised to smash his way into the box office this summer. As Marvel's Super Hero films continue to break movie-going records, this action thriller is poised to continue that trend, with stunning visual effects, powerful performances from its star-studded cast, and a sweeping score that will stay with you long after you see the film.

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Craig Armstrong's evocative score for The Incredible Hulk tells a listener much about the bearing of the movie it accompanies. Even without seeing it on a screen, the music is indelibly marked with both the color of night, and the tumultuous inner life of the titular character, trapped in his unshakable reality. While there are plenty of passages suffused with the increased pulse rate of dynamic action, much of this double disc set is potently emotional. There are tensions and momentary resolutions; there are longings punctuated by islands of fleeting calm. Rich and dense, the strength of this music is that it never loses sight of the solitary man at its center. Indeed, it is as if it takes the massed numbers of an entire symphony to equal the presence of The Incredible Hulk. --David Greenberger

I'm glad that I saw the movie first, that way I can relate what I'm hearing to what I've already seen.

The double cd release for the Incredible Hulk is by far one of the best scores to come out in a long time...a strong representation via 22 cuts per disc.
Itani Mullik
One of the best musical scores of the summer, The Incredible Hulk by Craig Armstrong really nails the character and fits the scenes extremely well.

While it is true that this release is a CDR, those interested in the music and not the ingredients of the disc upon which it is burned or pressed will be very pleased with this soundtrack, which comes accompanied with a professionally printed tray label and booklet - and smashingly grand sound. Released by Marvel, it's as official a soundtrack as we're apt to get - and certainly as complete a one, with almost two hours of music (111.15 mins). How many other film scores get as much music made available coincidental with the film's release? Armstrong's main theme is terrific, with its repeated, pronounced X-strokes of violin, and his 3-note Hulk motif, itself a kind of swervy reflection of that main theme transposed to a sinewy violin figure wrapped in thick cords, entwining around and through the orchestra, embodying the growling tonality of the verdant beast's voice in those deep and substantial cello strains, echoed by a much higher reflective glinting of violins, all propelled by a driving pulse of strings and snarling horns. The score draws its relentless forward motion from these strokes of violins, driven by a recurring, low string ostinato. It's large and quick and powerful - an adroit embodiment of the green guy himself. Joe Harnell's poignant piano theme, "The Lonely Man," from the 1979 Incredible Hulk TV series, is nicely incorporated into the track "Bruce Goes Home." It's one of many affectionate nods to that influential show included in the new movie. The reawakened romance between Banner and Betty Ross (Liv Tyler) is characterized by a melancholy love theme, poignant strings and piano. I've found The Incredible Hulk to be a richly energetic and powerful orchestral score with effective electronic nuances built into its textures.Read more ›

Forget the format complaints. I too would have prefered a pressed CD. Big deal. I'm just glad that I have the 2 hours of this awesome music! Only Craig Armstrong can write frenetic and powerful music that is still so beautiful and listenable. Also check out "Elizabeth:The Golden Age"(my favorite score from 2007). This Hulk score is outrageously good. 5 stars!

I've been a fan of Craig Armstrong since "Plunkett and Macleane" and his absolutely amazing "rescue" cue from that film. "The Incredible Hulk" is a worthy addition to his repertoire and stands out as one of the best modern superhero scores to date. It's action packed, tense, frenetic and somber and even has a snippet of the original Hulk TV theme!

On the technical side, I was also somewhat surprised to see the CDs are CD-Rs, but for someone who just loves the music, it didn't matter. It sounds perfectly fine to me. And if this is the beginning of a trend (releasing the FULL score, even on a CD-R) then I'll take it over a pressed, partial score CD any day.

This score is better than Iron Man, better than Fantastic Four, better even than Spiderman in my opinion and should be picked up regardless of the technology. Listen to it LOUD!

Craig Armstrong deserves to win the Oscar for Incredible Hulk. The music in this film really captures the sadness of Bruce Banner's plight. I also love that Mr. Armstrong has included the classic "Lonely Man" theme from the TV series.

This is an (pardon the pun) incredible score. Craig Armstrong's music for Marvel's second studio film is full of great moments, from start to finish. Armstrong is new to the superhero genre, previously scoring films like Ray, Moulin Rouge, Tomb Raider 2, and World Trade Center, but he doesn't let that show.

This powerful score holds onto the listener from the very first track, "Arctic," which ironically enough is from a scene that wasn't even in the film. Armstrong doesn't disappoint as he continues the powerful score, culminating up to the "Hulk Theme (End Credits)" on the end of the second disc. There is so music great music on here that's hard to come up with anything bad to say.

There are great moments of action like "Favela Escape" and "That is the Target" to great moments of poignant sadness with tracks like "It Was Banner" and "A Tear." Armstrong does it all, even performing "The Lonely Man" within the "Bruce Goes Home" track located on the first disc. A lot of the music reminds of a cross between James Newton Howard's scores for The Fugitive and King Kong, both great scores.

I definitely found this score to be not only one of the better ones released this summer, but one of the highlights of all superhero films ever made. This is just truly a fantastic piece of music. I'm glad that I saw the movie first, that way I can relate what I'm hearing to what I've already seen. It's harder to do it when you hear the score first, which is what I did to Prince Caspian and Indiana Jones.

To make a long story short, if you enjoyed the music of Iron Man, then Craig Armstrong's score for the Incredible Hulk is for you. The double cd release for the Incredible Hulk is by far one of the best scores to come out in a long time...a strong representation via 22 cuts per disc. In my personal opinion, while the movie was every bit as good(if not better) than Iron Man, the score is far superior to the music of Iron Man. Dare I say it rivals and surpasses Danny Elfman's score to the HULK(2003).WIth regard to the quulaity of the release, YES, it is CD-R as Marvel decided to release the music to this film independently as opposed to doing it through Universal music(perhaps for cost/budget related reasons...because I'm certain that the renowned Danny Elfman ad Universal may've cost Marvel an arm and a leg back in 2003). My advice to those who're hung-up about the CD-R format is to purchase more than one copy, one for collectible purchases and maybe a good couple for your listening pleasure. At any rate,even though I kind of hoped for the Hulk theme intro/dialogue from the 80's tv series or/and the theme from the 1960's cartoon(as was done with the Iron Man sdtk...lol) this score is a keeper and a worthy investment...HULK SMASH!!!!!

BEWARE - These are CD-Rs, not pressed CDs
Exactly. Thanks for alerting me - I buy CDs so that I can play the music on a stereo which can't play CD-R's, so this information was very helpful. There's no way I'm paying this much for CD-R's.
