Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

From the 60's onward, UK producer Gerry Anderson built a unique sci-fi TV mini-empire based on "Supermarionation," his unique blend of futuristic production design and marionette "actors" that have since inspired successful ad campaigns, a loving spoof from the creators of South Park and this big-screen, CGI 'n' live actor adaptation. Contemporary film score workhorse Hans Zimmer pays loving tribute to original Anderson musical collaborator Barry Gray, anchoring his update with a faithful cover of the late British composer's original series theme, then concocting a whole slate of new cues that build on the original show's brightly energetic, future-industrial soundtrack ethos. Indeed, the electro-orchestral fusion that Zimmer helped pioneer smartly reinforces that sensibility on muscular new cues like "International Rescue," "TB-3 Takeoff" and "F.A.B." Busted's marketing-oriented modern rock work-up of "Thunderbirds Are GO!" maintains the score's energy, even if it has precious little to do with the original's music -- or charm. --Jerry McCulley

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad August 1, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Although this film seems to be bombing more than Catwoman , the music is not bad.

Hans Zimmer did some good work here and the Busted Theme is kinda catchy.It takes awhile to understand what they are saying though.The music kinda muffles out the vocals.

The soundtrack is worth getting.

Too bad no one will care.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent soundtrack; no matter about the movie. August 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I was brave enough to see Thunderbirds twice, and I honestly enjoyed it. The soundtrack is excellent, too, as it sounds beautiful. My favorite two tracks are the Busted song, and track #5--"You Need to Grow Up." Now, some people criticize the music, saying this isn't Barry Gray's style. So what? No one on this planet could ever match the style of Gray's original series music. Hans Zimmer does a nice job of giving the movie its own style of music, particularly in track #2, when International Rescue gets introduced. In two tracks, the opening theme and #17, there is the sense of the original series' music, which means Zimmer has obviously given some homage to Gray. I definitely recommend this for anyone who loves an orchestra.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hans Zimmer is go ! September 27, 2004
By Hilok
Format:Audio CD
I really believe that this soundtrack deserves a better film !

The "up to date" rework on the original t-birds theme & the new themes being introduced for various situation during the movie are really great.

Look out for tracks #2 (Internationnal rescue) & #16 (F.A.B.), as you'll keep listening to those for quite a while, the techno orchestral arrangements are just too cool !

The title performed by "BUSTED" would be as good, if only I could catch the words they're singing ???
