Buy it... if you've somehow managed to appreciate the mechanically functional but anonymous quality that Brian Tyler consistently brings to his music for the franchise, this entry a predictable extension of the same sound.

Avoid it... if this music does nothing more than induce shrugs of indifference for you, the main theme not utilized frequently enough, new themes mediocre at best, and the action material pounding away on an overly lengthy album presentation.

Tyler
The Fate of the Furious: (Brian Tyler) Perpetuating the stunning success of the adventurous street car racing franchise, 2017's The Fate of the Furious defied mediocre critical response to break box office records and ensure the production of another two sequels. Having retired the characters directly related to deceased actor Paul Walker prior to this eighth series entry, the plotline fills in backstory of Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto character, revealing a family he didn't know he had and using them as incentive to betray his prior colleagues. The villain of the franchise has become Charlize Theron's cyber-terrorist, Cipher, and the team of government agents and racing enthusiasts is sent on a wild, worldwide chase to stop her takeover of a Russian submarine with which she can cause a senseless nuclear holocaust. (Before American president Donald J. Trump can beat her to it in real life, that is.) Despite the best efforts of the returning ensemble of shady characters, now including a variety of former antagonists working together and supplemented by the likes of both Kurt Russell and Helen Mirren, the fate of Cipher remains unresolved in The Fate of the Furious, paving the way for another few billion dollars of revenue to emerge from the wallets of the simple masses for the next entries. Certainly, these films continue to dwell in a fair amount of stupidity, the fallacies of logic not deterring any of the filmmakers from their predictable trajectory, and composer Brian Tyler fits squarely into that scheme. Marking the fifth film in the franchise for Tyler (unless you consider Fast & Furious 6, which had the composer's music tracked heavily into the picture when he could not score it due to scheduling conflicts), The Fate of the Furious continues to build upon the musical foundation the composer established in Fast Five. An avid auto-racing enthusiast, Tyler remains perhaps the best suited composer (literally speaking, too) for this franchise, and his orchestral/synthetic blend, heavy on percussive rhythms, has become the accepted musical identity of the concept despite the usual influx of song placements. In fact, for subsequent films in the series, an editor could easily utilize the Tyler music for the existing entries without needing much new material, if any. The shrug-inducing music has a mechanically functional but anonymous quality that lends itself well to the rather formulaic topic, but don't expect it to win any awards in the process.
