Just listened to the soundtrack and was really impressed. Ifukube would be proud.

I haven't commented on this yet, but yes, Bear McCreary hit it out of the park.

Still listening to each theme but so far every score is on the money. The sheer epicness is insane, this is comparable to some of the best movie/game themes in modern day pop culture.

Reminds me of how much love was put into the TDK trilogy and the Arkham games, specifically.

That depends on what, exactly, you buy. You have to select the CD or MP3 versions. If it doesn't specify MP3 or mentions delivery, odds are it's a CD version.

Yeah so far the pre-order is only for the MP3. So I guess the CD version will be released later?

Just saw the film last night at an advanced screening and the soundtrack was an absolute highlight. I was grinning ear to ear every time one of Ifukube's works appeared.

I'm glad that Rodan's theme is as fast paced as he actually is.

I just listened to the whole OST.

Ghidorah's theme really works for me. It sounds so haunting.

I liken it to Jerry Goldsmith’s Ava Satani from The Omen. It’s really unsettling and really fits this Ghidorah’s character.

Every time her theme shows up in a song I get chills. The track "Mothra's Song" may be my favorite track on the soundtrack. It's incredible. I applaud McCreary for doing Ifukube and Koseki justice. They would be proud.

I just listened to the Mothra theme on the way home from work. Damn near teared up.

It’s funny because these themes never really held that much significance with me. They were always just part of the Godzilla movies, you know. But listening to these renditions of them and seeing how much respect was put into them, it really hit home with me. Corny as it sounds, it made me realize just how big a part Godzilla movies played in me becoming who I am.

This.


Plus I keep catching myself singing the non-existent lyrics, someone has to do a cover of it.

He couldn't have nailed Mothra's song any better. Beautiful is the best word to describe it.

Honestly with the choir being in almost every track of this ost I'm surprised he didn't have them sing the lyrics to the Mothra song.
