"Jobs - Original Motion Picture Score" brings us the instrumental score from the movie, composed by Hollywood veteran John Debney, who was nominated for an Oscar for his score of "The Passion Of The Christ" some years ago. We get tons of mostly short instrumental pieces, many in the 1 to 2 minute range, which cover the gamet of musical styles and flavors (see for example the contrast between "Hey Woz/Dawn of Computers" and "First Deal"). As you can imagine, tracks like "Jobs Fires Girlfriend" and "The Board Acts/Steve Makes Calls" have a certain built-in tension. "1984 Commercial" on the other hand is a (p)review of the "main theme" (and comes at a pivotal moment in the movie). "Jobs Returns/Tours Apple" is a beautiful tune, with pensive guitars. This compilation concludes with "Steve's Theme: Main Title", sounding optimistic and majestic, yet with a darker side to it as well. It's my favorite piece of this score. The thing that threw me for a loop is that it actually appears much earlier in the movie (and its leitmotiv later reappears in "1984 Commercial", as I already mentioned). But it's a minor quibble and in the end this is a very nice instrumental score.
If you are looking for the songs that appear in the movie, a handful of them are included in the MP3 download available here on Amazon, including "Scarborough Fair" (NOT the Simon & Garfunkel original, but by Dylan McDonald and Cassidy Cooper instead), REO Speedwagon's "Roll WIth the Changes" and Toad the West Sprocket's "Walk On the Ocean", just to name those. But beware, more important are the songs that are NOT included in the MP3: Cat Stevens' "Peace Train" (playing as the movie opens), Bob Dylan's "Boots of Spanish Leather", and Joe Walsh's "Life's Been Good", and a few more.
Bottom line: if you are a fan of orchestral movie score, this is a fine one, composed by John Dabey, and I think you will enjoy it quite a bit. For those that are looking for the songs in the movie, head on over to the MP3 listing of this.
