I think its funny how a couple of people on this thread have said the score sounds like it has a real "80's vibe to it".
I sure as hell hope the score doesn't sound like an 80's score because Rush is about the 1976 F1 World Driver's Championship.
Do The Ten Commandments sound like a 13th century BC score ?
Haha, yes! That's why it drives me crazy when people say the Media Ventures style is inappropriate for films, particularly historical dramas/epics. If film scores actually sounded like the music of periods in which their films are set, they would be unpalatable to the vast majority of people.
An excellent, vigorous score from Mr. Zimmer! I have just finished my first listen and I felt so damn excited throughout the whole thing. More thoughts to come when I have the time to pick apart the tracks individually, but as one whole listen this one is very cool.
No surprise coming from my lips, but Zimmer has delivered another exceedingly listenable album.
Now, where's Yor and the rest of the tin-ear flunkies to delve into the scholarly subject of "Hanzimmer sux?"
