Re: Hans Zimmer Scoring The Man of Steel - Part 2
I was pleasantly surprised by a lot of the samples, but the action music leaves a lot to be desired. It seems exceedingly loud just for the sake of being loud. There also doesn't appear to be much in the way themes, save for a few scant hints like the piano bit in track three. But I was surprised by some of it like the violin solo in "Krypton's Last" and the ambient, alien quality to it makes sense with the way the film is focusing on the kryptonian stuff.
O Captain! My Captain! Rise up and hear the bells.
Rise up, for you the flag is flung, for you the bugle trills.
For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths, for you the shores a-crowding.
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning.
