On second thought, the John Carter score is awesome

Best Selling RPGs - Available Now @ DriveThruRPG.com

The other day I posted a link without comment here on Nerdvana to a Geeks of Doom! article about Amazon offering the complete digital album of Michael Giacchino’s John Carter score for just $4. I listed to each of the track previews and wasn’t overly impressed, despite being enthralled with the composer’s recent work on the Star Trek reboot and just about everything ever made by J.J. Abrams.

I gave the complete album another listen this evening on Spotify and I have to admit, I was wrong. I think the score, at least, captures the epic otherworldliness of the 100-year-old planetary romances of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Even if, at times, I feel like I’m listening to the soundtrack of Lost. Somehow, that’s appropriate. Other times I’m reminded of the scores of epic Earthbound adventure films of times past, like Lawrence of Arabia. Which, also, is somehow appropriate for the story of the Earthman who is “lost in our world, found in another.”

Check it out for yourself.
