I was a big fan of Brian Tyler's score for "Iron Man 3", so I was happy that he was continuing his collaboration with Marvel to work on "Thor: The Dark World". I also enjoyed Patrick Doyle's work on the original "Thor" film, and was looking forward to hearing what new music the sequel would bring. It seems that for "The Dark World", Tyler has produced a similar style and tone; although those who like continuity in film franchises might be a little disappointed, because I didn't hear any specific themes from the first film re-used here.

The music has a lot of great action cues that will add to the fun of those sequences in the movie - fortunately, the music is also great to listen to on its own. There are also some tracks that skillfully use vocals, the most memorable of which is "Lockasenna" [Track 2]. I always enjoy the use of choral elements in soundtracks, and it feels very appropriate here given the larger-than-life nature of this story about gods and other worlds.

Overall, I think "Thor: The Dark World" is a great soundtrack that's surpasses the original "Thor" album - although both are definitely worth a listen. This is the second great score from Brian Tyler in 2013, and "The Dark World" is among the best scores for a Marvel Studios film to date.

The one other thing to mention is that this film is the first to feature just the Marvel Studios logo at the front (no Disney, Paramount, etc). As such, the logo has been expanded and Tyler was asked to create a full 30-second fanfare - this music is included on "The Dark World" album, and is likely to be heard at the beginning of every future Marvel Studios film.

I love the soundtrack, but they aren't in the order played during the movie! (Who's bright idea was that?) Plus, as far as I can tell, some cues are missing, like one for Jane Foster and another for Malekith. Anyway, here's my take at putting the tracks back in order. If anyone has a better ordering, please post it in reply!

1 - Thor: The Dark World (could possibly go at the end; not actually used in the movie intro, but heard during the DVD menus)

2 - Marvel Studios Fanfare

3 - Origins (the movie's cold open, "bury it deep", etc.)

4 - Lokasenna (Odin confronts Loki and sends him to the dungeon)

5 - Battle of Vanaheim

6 - Shadows of Loki (discussion after the battle)

7 - Sword and Council (Thor returning to Asgard and buttering up Odin - hm, I wonder if I could get a butter Odin for Eoster celebrations this year?)

missing cue here for Jane Foster and Darcy careening around London?

8 - Vortex (Jane Foster and Darcy explore the anomaly)

9 - Convergence? (Jane+Aether return)

10 - Journey to Asgard (Thor shows up and carries Jane off)

another missing cue in here somewhere for the Dark Elves prepping for their attack on Asgard

11 - Uprising

12 - A Universe from Nothing (storytime with Odin! And he's not Borr-ing, either!

It started a few short years ago when I bought the DVD for Fimucite: The Biomechanical Symphony and heard Brian Tyler's Wagnerian piece for Alien vs Predator Requiem. I was hooked and immediatly started looking for his work. Bought Expendables, AVP:R, Iron Man 3 and now own Thor:The Dark World. Hard as it is to imagine Tyler gets better and better each time I hear him and this is my favorite album to date. A tour de force to say the least. Would highly recommend it to anyone who loves film music.

After having listened to this score only a few times, I have found myself whistling the melody. Astonishingly powerful percussion and choir meld into a magical aural journey that is epic in size and has beautiful vocal moments to ground us in the world of Asgard. The music is an actor in this film and that is what scoring should be about. Glad they included the Marvel Studios Fanfare at the end. Tyler is definitely the go to action composer. Very well done.

This soundtrack is very different from the one from the first Thor movie, which I own and thoroughly enjoy. After listening to both for some time, I found that the difference between the two soundtracks is significant in many ways, but both are very enjoyable in their own ways.

Thor (by Doyle)
- Feels deeper in terms of emotional engagement, which includes more feel of melancholy. This is key to building the back story and the relationships between Thor/his parents, Thor/Jane, and Thor/Loki.
- There are several high-tempo tracks that are perfect for action/battle scenes.

Thor: Dark World (by Tyler)
- Feels much darker overall, and much more powerful in terms of rhythm and faster in tempo. Again, fits the story and theme of the movie perfectly. There is a higher sense of urgency in most of the tracks, likely because there are more action sequences in this film.
- There are not as many slower tracks as the first one; not good or bad, just different. This makes sense as the the foundation was already established in the first film, and that this film is faster-paced by far.

All in all, this track definitely fits the intensity, tone, pace, and feel of the movie. I highly recommend for fans of the movie or motion picture soundtracks in general!
