A excerllent soundtrack to an excerllent film
Before listening to this soundtrack its best to get some context by watching the excerllent film. Like the film the soundtrack expands out of the original. It also updates the themes and queues to mark the passage of time between the two films so feels like an evolution. I love the Vangelis score and this does it justice as a follow up and continuation. Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch have done great work here.
I dont care if it sounds like x,y,or z from previous works, to me it is a full vibrant taptestry to match the movie. Playing heavily on repeat to shake my house. Bravo!
iTunes messed it up.
This soundtrack is great and would be 5 stars but shortly after downloading iTunes and my iPhone has muddled the track listing and split the album into two different albums on my phone and in iTunes, so I can no longer listen to it properly.
Awesome film, awesome soundtrack
The only film I've gone back to see again, the soundtrack is incredible, mesa, leaves me with goosebumps, every time I hear it! It's both a visual and audio dream come true... would love to see a third in the franchise!
Terrible! Zimmer is definately losing his hearing.

I think Hans Zimmer is getting a bit stale, reminds me a bit of the Dunkirk soundtrack (it could even be the same in most places) that was just background noise rather than an experience. All in all very disappointed with this.
Brilliant soundtrack let down by Lauren Daigle
This is a brillaint soundtrack let down by the bizzare inclusion of Lauren Daigle's "Almost Human", I had to double check when I first heard it, I thought my iTunes had somehow included it in error. This is probably Hans Zimmers idea, as she is a collaborator, but IMHO he made a serious error in judgement by including this absolute rubbish. Of all the amazing artists he could have chosen, Lisa Gerrard for example, he includes this forgettable pop rubbish. Otehr than that, a great soundtrack, but 4 stars for this glaring ommission. Download and delete as a applicable.
By X-men rules
The score by Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch was superb
By Kotatsu Neko
This isn't music, it's a bunch of fog horns and background noise. Hans Zimmer should be retired.
If only Vangelis had worked on this.
Different but will still end up a classic in 40 years
By Mcginty Steele
After growing up with this film and music score I wasnt happy a remake was on the cards But I had to see the film And I agree the score is very differant to that of vangelis but found it truly deep and dark and in tune with the film of which in my veiw was also visualy stunning dark and moody like the score both sound track and film have shown me there is a time they just do get it right.
Where's the trailer music?!
By Stanley H. Tweedle
Much like other reviews here - rather disappointed with this soundtrack with the major shock being the missing music from the trailers. The vocal track at the end is also a horrible dirge.
That said; there are some moving soundscapes here although nothing memorable - certainly nothing that stands up to Vangelis' work on the original film.
