Ottman Returns To The Franchise In Full-Form July 17 2014
By Kaya Savas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The X-Men franchise has always been a crowd pleaser and had an awesome director behind it from the get go. Bryan Singer did a great job with X-Men and X2: X-Men United. He then left the franchise to direct Superman Returns, the franchise went on without him with mixed results. Besides directing continuity being broken there was also a lack of musical continuity, something of a pet peeve of mine. Every single film in this franchise has been scored by a different composer, until now that is. Singer brings back his go to collaborator in John Ottman who has scored every one of his films (as well as edited) except the first X-Men. John had to skip on the first X-Men because he was directing his first feature. Now Ottman returns as the first composer to bring back some form of continuity to this franchise, and he propels the X-Men into the modern age with grace.

X-Men Days Of Future Past may seem like a deceivingly quiet score at first, but there it is a very finely tuned machine building towards the climax. Ottman gives Xavier a wonderful theme that exudes warmth and turmoil in a quiet repressed fashion with a tragic tinge. It may draw comparisons to Hans Zimmer’s overly temped “Time”, but rest easy knowing Ottman doesn’t cut to temp scores as he edits completely clean. The score takes its time in building character and emotion. Xavier’s theme gets some variations and becomes the central motif of this film. The first half of this score is very poignant and touching. It introduces us slowly to some intriguing melodies and textures clearly building towards something. A few action bursts come, but it’s not until “Time’s Up” do we seriously see Ottman’s action chops come into play. He also of course touches back to his own themes from X2 including expansions of character motifs. The entire final act is full of emotional weight and grandiose action moments that fill the air. The orchestral approach with the slightest touch of electronics make the score something wonderful. Ottman wraps up the narrative in a wonderful conclusion that utilizes Xavier’s theme for a satisfying resolution.

John Ottman has successfully created an emotionally memorable journey back into the X-Men universe. The score is filled with organic emotions that build slowly throughout the narrative. Nothing is rushed, but nothing is boring either. You become instantly invested in what’s at stake. The action sequences bring heft and weight, but never in a clumsy manner. The construction of the score is elegant and fluid yet it can still shake you. Ottman delivers a large epically scoped score that never collapses under its own weight. The whole experience is a fantastically woven journey of character moments, action bombast and elegant emotions.

Best there is bub! June 15 2014

Very beautiful non generic score, that perfectly evokes the loss & hopelessness of Xavier & Mystique. the desperation of Wolverine & the X-Men, and the menace of Magneto.
While it's nice that Ottman returned Nov. 19 2014

This is honestly overall the weakest entry in the X-men franchise soundtrack department. While it's nice that Ottman returned, much of the soundtrack is relatively subdued and ambient in comparison to his far superior work for X-2. Xavier's theme, while somewhat simple in composition, is nevertheless poignant and effective in the film. The main theme is brilliant, of course, but not used nearly enough, certainly in comparison to X-2. It would have interesting to see how the score would have turned out if John Powell was hired, as his score for X-men 3 was actually top-notch, even if the film was the weakest in the trilogy.

Relive the movie in your head! June 3 2014
By L. Ackerman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Love the score. Glad John Ottman is back, and that he incorporated his original X2 theme in this. I always felt that with each film having a different composer, it gave a different feel to each film. ...Maybe that's why there's this disconnect with the other films.

I especially love Hope (Xavier's Theme), and Welcome Back - End Titles, which connects John's X2 theme with Hope (Xavier's Theme).

Definitely a must have if you're into scores.
X-cellent Sept. 19 2014

This soundtrack gets it right for the dark and dramatic tone of the movie. John Ottman was able to get all the dramatic elements of the film into the tracks. It was great to hear the original X-Men theme again while also seeing the original cast. There are influences of Hans Zimmer and Michael Kamen (RIP) in several of the songs. He does it so well that it doesn't sound like a copycat version. Whenever I hear one of the songs I can remember what scene it played in. He knows how to make the music fit with the scenes like he did with X2.
