Christophe Beck's ANT-MAN scores

Everything is consolidated into a "What are you listening to" thread!  Break em up!

 

These are both really good scores.  The vinyl art's pretty neat.  Still don't care for records, but I'm glad for people that like them.  And while in this particular case I was satisfied with the OST, I wish that all music would be available on some sort of digital format.

I can't hear Beck's theme without hearing Frank Zappa's "Uncle Remus." It works ok otherwise.

These are both fine scores. But other than some cues here and there, they are best experienced in their respective films. I feel the same way about Silvestri's Infinity War. It is actually a terrific score...in context.

Was Ant Man and the Wasp even released on CD? FUCK YOU, VINYL!

Nope. None of the recent Marvel scores were (except for Infinity War).

Man, that artwork looks great! Vinyl artwork seems to keep getting better and better. Of course, I don't collect vinyl, but I like both of these scores quite a bit. A very fun theme and lots of cool material!

Here's a new article with news that all MCU movies will be released on vinyl but they also reveal the track list for Ant-Man and the Wasp.  LP1 & LP2, Side 1 mirror the digital release, while LP2, Side 2 has the previously-mentioned 14 new tracks.  Big fan of both the movies and the scores, can't wait to listen!

Yeah not a big fan of demos either (looking at you, LOTR Rarities disc), thankfully there's only three of them.  Hope for both of these scores to get a proper multi-disc release someday!

Anyone get this?  If so how do the new tracks sound?  Wish this was a CD release as well since I don't do vinyl.

Listened to this OST this morning for the first time in a couple years.  There are some real nice highlights for sure, I need to pare it down to a great listening experience.

 

I like the woodwind writing in "A Little Nudge."  It's just nice to hear featured woodwind in a modern blockbuster score at all.

Is Ant-Man and the Wasp's score generally considered to be better than the first Ant-man's score by most fans?

I also enjoy these scores quite a bit! I often take a spin through some half-hour 'LP' style playlists I put together:

For the first one, I made a personal edit of some of the climactic cues (the backslashed tracks in slots 9 to 11 ) and played around with the order. I think Scott Surfs On Ants segues nicely into the Theme, and it's chronological place makes the middle a little too action-heavy. I also prefer Pym's Lab as a low-key opener.

 

For the second score (which yes, @Jay, I definitely prefer to the first- I think it's a little more varied and I really enjoy the new Wasp theme :)), I just picked my favourites and kept them in order.

Although I account for one fan - not most - no. I consider the first score better than the second.

I think they are both fantastic, each feature a solid and fun theme for their respective characters.

 

I'm bummed the LP for the second film has additional tracks not included in the original release.

Not happy to see Bates replaced by Murphy on Guardians 3. It also could've been great to have Bates do 3 films.

Bates' score for GOTG Vol 2 is in the top ten of the MCU, in my opinion. It's probably the best thing he wrote on his career.

Christophe Beck is the best composer of the MCU with Silvestri, every single one of his entry was perfect so I'm glad to see him back on it.

As for Bates, his GOTG vol.2 was certainly pretty good but the first one not so much so I'm not too sad to see him be replaced by Murphy who has prove himself to be better than Bates in the past (at least IMO)
