Buy it... if you seek a continuation of Steven Price's sound design-first, orchestral romanticism-second equation from the acclaimed Gravity, a risk that produces one of the most challenging listening experiences in years.

Avoid it... if you expect any sense of authenticity to the period depicted in this film, because Price's sole focus, and one that needs appropriately questioned, was on the brutal emotional impact of the grisly film.

Fury: (Steven Price) Let us not waste any time before declaring David Ayer's 2014 movie Fury to be an extraordinarily unpleasant experience all around. That was his goal. In his attempt to expose the "real" atmosphere of World War II in its final days, Ayer pushed the actors to their breaking point, encouraging them to fight with each other and forcing them to live, sleep, and defecate in a vintage tank so that they could adequately prepare for their roles. Lovely! There is nothing romantic or glamorous about this depiction of an American tank crew's push into Germany in the final days of the war, Fury clearly attempting to be for this war what the classic Platoon was for the Vietnam War. Critics largely praised this grim portrayal, one in which body mutilation and grisly deaths are common and graphic, and audiences rewarded the film with solid box office returns. The score for Fury is something of a point of controversy because of its absolutely relentless, modern style of addressing a film that otherwise attempted to convey the war, its people, and its machines in as authentic a fashion as possible. The assignment went to young British composer Steven Price, former assistant to the great Trevor Jones before his own career blossomed in 2013 with a pair of assignments that included Gravity, which won him both the BAFTA and Academy Award. As a programmer and sound effects master, Price's handling of the claustrophobic environment of space and its own set of horrors led directly to his hiring on Fury. What few people were prepared to hear in the 2014 film, however, was largely a continuation of the score for Gravity in terms of attitude and style, the composer choosing a very modern approach to the film. There is no doubt that listeners will either love the balls with which Price has tackled Fury or abhor his disgraceful diminishment of the authenticity of the film because of his choice to handle the project like just another opportunity for uniquely beefed-up sound design. Taking the middle ground, appreciating his attempt to throw sonic mud at the film to enhance its already horrific character, is probably the most logical response. But to say that his often totally unlistenable score is the best approach for a film like this may be narrow-minded, for Platoon proved that you could make the same point about the horrors of war by intentionally juxtaposing the wretched visuals with incredibly beautiful music, puncturing the romanticism in a different manner. At the very least, Price has created an interesting conversation point, and one must be commended for taking a chance. Not surprisingly, it didn't take long for Fury's score to earn some awards nominations.
