As much as I can't wait for the score (and movie) I prefer to hear the score in context before listening to it away from the movie. I'm really curious about his Mysterio theme. That villain/character seems fun to score.

At the Michael Giacchino concert in Dublin last Friday, he did a suite from the new movie as an encore!

It sounded great!

Thank you for posting the link to the video.

I even found myself sitting in the audience. It was a lovely concert. While he conducted the second half without click he wanted to use it for the final encore of Speed Racer which had to sync up precisely with the film clips shown. Just kike in his concert at the Royal Albert Hall it didn't work. So he threw in an impromptu Q & A session while the technicians worked out the glitches with the click track.

I wish I could have attended the second concert on saturday featuring the music of Lost but sadly I couldn't find an affordable flight on sunday.

Amazon music has a suite and a track up today.

I'm blissfully spoiler-free, so I'll listen after I see it. Homecoming is one of the few MCU scores I listen to front to back (and Doctor Strange is another), so I'm looking forward to it.

It is a good score...but I have the same issues with this score as Dark Phoenix, Men In Black: International, etc. I felt like I heard this score before many times. Beyond Giacchino's pedestrian main theme, all of his mannerisms are present, down to his typical action scoring. The whole score is well done, but also felt derivative and tiresome at the same time. It just doesn't feel fresh.

So sick of Spider Man movies at this point.

Nails on chalkboard, man. Nails on chalkboard.

It's up on Spotify. Pretty dull score that relentlessly meanders. "World’s Worst Water Feature" borrows a lot from The Planets.

Really enjoying this. His Spidey theme is incredibly versatile and has a great hook.

Likewise, the new theme for Mysterio has been stuck in my head for a week. (Also never heard Giacchino use electronics quite this heavily.)

“Mr One Hundred and One” has some great interplay of the two themes towards the end.

Also enjoying the almost Goldenthal-like elements in “Magical Mysterio Tour.”

Most of the impressions here seem to be negative or lukewarm but I’m enjoying it a lot — definitely more than Homecoming.

The first film had the catchy main theme Gaicchino played with throughout the score. It anchored the score and gave it a thematic drive even if it was a bit redundant.

I assume there's a lot more action in the sequel and I am just not keen on Gaicchino's action writing. So I didn't really have high hopes this score would work for me.

I kinda like it. It sounds like it's well crafted (I still have to see it in the movie of course).

As with most scores of Giacchino these last few years, it comes accros as lifeless. Performed by the numbers without any inspiration of vitality.

Good craftsmanship. Nothing more.

Love it. Really enjoyable and entertaining. One of my favorites so far this year.

Wow... so good. MG knocked this out of the park. Was like warm about the original release but it quickly grew on me. Far From Home elevates it to a stunning level. Rarely a score excites me this much on a first listen.
