Buy it... if you seek a well-conceived, refreshing resurrection of big band jazz and orchestral action from 1960's capers that intelligently matures as the score progresses.

Avoid it... if the music for vintage, snazzy spy thrillers or early James Bond films produces only headaches for you, in which case the beefier version of that sound adapted here might give you a migraine.

The Incredibles: (Michael Giacchino) When writer and director Brad Bird had the idea for this film bouncing around in his head for several years before beginning production, you can easily see why he dedicated himself to making it. While only the animated genre would really work for the story, The Incredibles is an opportunity to mesmerize the kids with Pixar's usual magic while also throwing a dose of modern reality into the story for adults to chuckle about (Finding Nemo bridged this gap successfully and became a smash hit for the studio as well). A high-flying superhero of the 1950's is forced into a mundane, suburban lifestyle when faced with lawsuits from ungrateful people whom he had saved, raising a family (all budding superheroes, of course, along with Mr. Incredible's wife) that is attempting to maintain a normal lifestyle while adorned with special powers. Mr. Incredible himself is spotlighted as a study in the perils of early retirement, sneaking off with other older superhero buddies for occasional late night fun. As fate would have it, of course, The Incredibles has a villain who wants to unleash fearsome robots upon the earth from a Pacific island (no surprise), and our favorite family of superheroes is called upon to save the day. The film was another critical and popular triumph for the Disney/Pixar collaboration, earning the top Academy Award for an animated film and raking in over $600 million at the box office. As confirmed by Bird, a sequel was long rumored but eventually tabled. The director claimed that he had the music for The Incredibles in mind long before his writing was finished, and that the genre he envisioned was always that of big band jazz and orchestral action rolled into one. Such music was immensely popular in capers of the 1960's, and the style established its best footing in the James Bond films, which, more than anything else, put that genre in the mainstream of film music.
