Musically, Marvel has been all over the place. They have failed to keep a sonic identity for any of their franchises. Iron Man was a bold experiment from Ramin Djawadi that paid off. A defining rock-based score that embodied the character. However, it was met with criticism so Marvel dumped Djawadi and therefore lost Iron Man's sonic identity to a mediocre John Debney score. Thor featured what I feel is the best score from any Marvel film. Patrick Doyle created such a lush and grand feel plus it's so emotionally enthralling. However since Marvel and Kenneth Branagh parted ways that means the chance of Doyle returning is slim. Silvestri is an iconic composer with credits like Forrest Gump and Back To The Future. Some argue he only does his best work with Robert Zemeckis (listen to The Mexican and Mouse Hunt and you'll disagree), but he managed a serviceable score to Captain America. It wasn't bold, and it definitely took inspiration from Michael Giacchino's Medal Of Honor but it worked. Marvel decided to create some continuity and keep Silvestri for The Avengers. The result is a strong score that plays it extremely safe.

On its own the score is an expertly executed old fashioned adventure score, and maybe that's why it was so lost within the CGI chaos. In the film the music finds a hard time trying to breathe and in the end is suffocated by the action overload of the final act. The theme isn't bold enough to burst through the noise, and it seems as if the music was an afterthought to the filmmakers. You can tell when action is molded around music and when it isn't, and with The Avengers it clearly wasn't. There's no building; no emotional payoff. SPOILER ALERT: When Iron Man decides to sacrifice himself and carry the nuke into the porthole can you remember the music?

Let me begin by saying this: I think that the choice to have Alan Silvestri score "The Avengers" was a smart one. Silvestri ("Forrest Gump", "The Polar Express") is a talented composer, and his score for "Captain America" was one of the better musical works in the Marvel film catalog.

I have not yet seen the movie (I am really looking forward to it!), but after hearing the score I am confident that this music works well within the film. And that's the most important thing. [EDIT: I have now seen the film, and the music was great in certain parts but I felt that it often did not match the epic scope of what I was seeing visually.]

As for the listening experience itself, it is very good but doesn't quite live up to my expectations (which I'll admit were extremely high). I was hoping that many of the themes previously established in the other Marvel movies would reappear here and be expanded upon, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Still, the composition titled "Stark Goes Green" [Track 04] seems to be a very character-driven piece. And despite the fact that it doesn't draw from the previous "Iron Man" scores at all, I quite like it.

Then you have the more traditionally grand pieces, like "Helicarrier" [Track 05] and "One Way Trip" [Track 16] - two highlights of the album.

When I listen to a great film score (recent examples would be "Tron Legacy", "Inception", and "Super 8"), it usually sticks in my head and I tend to have the urge to listen to it over and over again. For some reason I don't get that feeling with "The Avengers" score. While there are many good tracks, I just don't think that the score distinguishes itself from countless other action scores.

The Avengers is one of my favorite movies of all time, and has one of my all time favorite soundtracks. It's fun, dramatic, and upbeat. My favorite tracks are: Helicarrier, Assault, Seeing, Not Believing, Assemble (My favorite track), I got a Ride, A Promise, and The Avengers. My favorite track is Assemble, because the music from my favorite scene in the movie, where Bruce Banner hulks out and kills the Leviathan, is so cool. Easily one of the best scores ever, and Alan Silvestri is one of my favorite composers. A must get for fans of The Avengers.

Somehow, even though I saw the movie three times, in theaters, I was expecting a more punchy score. Marvel comic movies have all had decent, but not amazing scores, but great movies and characters. DC movies have had great scores, and in many cases, bleah movies. Come on, Disney, you own them now, hold out for some really good theme music! Are you going to let Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker have better music than Thor?

Wow, this came early and I was happy because I'm going on a road trip next month and plan on taking it with me. I gave it four stars because although it's fun to listen to, it doesn't get into the action music till much later. If you liked The Avengers movie, this soundtrack is definitely a must buy!

For those you you who have seen the Avengers Movie this review review is superficial because you know how great the music is. We are talking about the score not the rock songs (you know, the one with the lame Soundgarden song).
The music is almost in sequessional order so one can imagine the film as you are listening.
The stand out song is the Avengers main theme as a life long fan of the comic book it gets my heart pumping.
Worth the price of addmision.
