Rambo finally returns to the movies, and it also means new music! This CD contains almost the entire score by Brian Tyler. His versions of main and action themes do the first three movie scores justice. Although the tracking is a bit odd, the music is exciting and worth turning the volume up!! My favorite track in particular is track 2 (No Rules Of Engagement). Tyler has his own blend of powerful action themes and percussion and strings to give it it's own rythm. Tracks like The Aftermath and The Village present some of the more peaceful moments in the music. Track 7, Hunting Mercenaries, gives a real "charge"! Tracks 1 and 19 are simillar and represent two versions of the opening scenes of the film, track 19 being the alternate version to track 1 that was heard in the film.
The best part of the whole CD is the used of the original Rambo music by the late Jerry Goldsmith, which can be heard on tracks 1,2,8,12,18,19,and 20. Those themes brought back the original emotions of the original soundtracks of the first three, and I can happily say that Brian Tyler did Jerry Goldsmith's themes justice!
I believe this is worthy of calling it Rambo music. Enjoy!!
