Marvel’s been lambasted for their basic scores in the past, but it looks like they may be turning over a new leaf. This cue is from Michael Giacchino end credits track to Doctor Strange, and it’s pretty great! It’s not just unlike anything the composer has done before, it’s unlike anything any major studio has done for a comic book film in a long time. There are echoes of Pink Floyd strewn about, with really strong orchestration and melodies that are catchy, while also creating a unique groove and atmosphere.
Giacchino’s Doctor Strange score is out this Friday, October 21.
