This, like the movie itself, is much better than the first one (at least in my opinion--I know others feel differently). The inclusion of vocals gives Sea of Monsters a very unique quality. "Thalia's Story" and "To Be Alive" are my favorites, with "Main Titles" coming a close third. Definitely worth a listen!

I was surprised beautiful this soundtrack is. Thalia's theme is quite wonderful, especially in the context of the story. This is my first soundtrack from Andrew Lockington, and he blew me away. I like the first film's score by Christophe Beck, but this one is even better. The main themes and motifs are consistent throughout, making for a very cohesive album. I usually dislike when tracks are arranged in film order, but this soundtrack is well paced, so this is one of the few examples I've seen of film order working. (Look at the soundtrack for "Super 8" for an example of film order NOT working.) As far as I can tell, Percy, his half-brother Tyson, and Thalia get their own themes/motifs. I was humming them all as I left the theater. Great album.

I just listened to the soundtrack at [...] before purchasing it and before I went and saw the movie. When I listened to the music I closed my eyes and I could imagine the scenes and the characters as the music was playing. It gave me an idea of what to expect in the movie and the movie was kind of what I expected. So I do recommend purchasing this item and hope that you purchase Percy Jackson: Titan's Curse soundtrack when it comes out and also see the movie.

I am a huge Lockington fan. Any contemporary composer that can follow up two Herrmann milestones (The Journey to the Center of the Earth, Mysterious Island) with two efforts that excel in their own rights is a very talented individual to be sure. "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" is another example of Lockington's ability to score an action film with cogent thematic material, vigorous rythmatic structures, and deft orchestral effects. Kudos to the many contributions of the excellent Nicholas Dodd, by the way! To bad the CD release truncates the best material from several cues, e.g, "Percy at the Lake," "Ride at Sea," "Resurrection: Thalia and the Tree of Life," among others. My best advice to the disappointed "Nathan" is to buy the BluRay release and listen to the complete score. True, nothing compares to the thematic richness of "Journey2: The Mysterious Island," the best filmscore of 2012 (surprising to say). There are so many good ideas in that score, such beautiful melodies and interesting orchestral effects, that umpteen Zimmer efforts combined don't even come close. But don't write off "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" -- it places somewhere between "Ciy of Ember" and "Journey to the Center of the Earth" in the Lockington lexicon. It involves the listener completely as it evokes the dramaturgy with thrilling musical equivalence, at times mystical and awe-inspiring. Highly recommended!!

I really wanted to love this score. Christophe Beck's score to the first Percy Jackson movie was one of that composer's best efforts, a robust adventure score that was almost as good as the movie was awful. Andrew Lockington, the composer for this sequel, is one of my favorite up-and-coming composers; his score to last year's Journey 2: The Mysterious Island was one of the year's best: a fun, energetic, memorable fantasy adventure score. I was hoping Lockington would find as much inspiration in this subject matter as Beck apparently did. Unfortunately, after listening to this score half-a-dozen times, I have to admit to myself that something's amiss. I can't really put my finger on it. This is a pleasant adventure score. It's well-orchestrated, fast, and fun, very much in the same vein, sonically, as Lockington's earlier efforts in the genre. I can't think of a good reason not to love it. But for some reason, it leaves no lasting impression. As soon as it's played, I can barely remember a thing about it. Where I'm still humming Journey 2's themes more than a year later, Percy Jackson's music goes in one ear and out the other. I hope that other listeners manage to find this score more memorable than I do, but for my own part I'm probably more likely to return to Journey 2, City of Ember, or Skinwalkers when I'm hankering for some of Lockington's music than to retrieve this score from my shelf.
