The Luke Cage soundtrack is huge. As in, 82 songs. And now you can finally listen to all of them online!Read More
I've covered other types of soundtracks and scores from heroes to villains and back again, but what I haven't written about yet are the beautiful tracks—the gorgeous ones and the haunting melodies that embed themselves in your brain and become a part of the character and experience for you. I'm a huge fan of soundtracks for movies, TV, and video games, and my favorites are about as eclectic and weird as I am, so be prepared (like a lion telling some hyenas how it's going to be).Read More
The next time someone tries to convince Hans Zimmer to write music for a superhero movie, the composer plans to pass up the opportunity.Read More
The music used in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer sounds so beautiful that it could improve almost anything -- even Masters of the Universe, the so-bad-it's-good He-Man movie adaptation that came out in 1987.Read More

Who doesn't love free stuff?
Boy, are we excited for The World's End to premiere in the USA tomorrow. You know what else we're really excited about? Getting our hands on the soundtrack, which you know is going to be full of some seriously awesome '90s Britpop. Luckily ABKCO Records is pretty pumped about it, too, and want to give out a bunch of copies for free.Read More
But when's Book 2 coming out? I need to know. For reasons.
After years of fighting tooth and nail to get an Avatar-related soundtrack onto the market, franchise creator Bryan Konietzo has announced the release of The Legend of Korra: Original Music From Book One, a soundtrack featuring the work of series composer Jeremy Zuckerman. Whee! It might not be the music from the original Avatar: The Last Airbender series, but at least all our online petitions and crazed fan shenanigans -- fananigans? -- counted for something. Now we're at least that much closer to a good quality recording of "Secret Tunnel."Read More
Beyond Good & Evil is both a triumph and tragedy. Most people who have ever played the game will tell you how absolutely fantastic it is, how much they want a sequel, and how much of a shame it is that it was such a monetary failure they bought it from GameStop for $9 new. With the game's recent release with an HD overhaul, maybe more people can at least attest to the former two sentiments regarding the game's stellar quality. If Ubisoft giving us another chance to play BG&E--and in HD--wasn't totally incredible, the fact that we can now download its great soundtrack for free should at least add to some of the incredibleness. Go forth, readers, shout "Carlson and Peeters" on the top of your lungs, give the soundtrack a listen, and maybe you'll also have "Propaganda" stuck in your head as much as I do. Make sure to thank Ubisoft by telling everyone how great Beyond Good & Evil is.Read More
