Buy it... if you long for optimistically encouraging and thematically engaging film music in the best orchestral and choral traditions of yesteryear for an all-around entertaining listening experience.

Avoid it... if this era's norm of darkly dramatic, masculine, and brooding soundtrack music is your desire, because this Michael Giacchino effort is the absolute antithesis of that booming monotony.

Tomorrowland: (Michael Giacchino) For many youngsters of yesteryear, the Tomorrowland section of the original Disneyland theme park was a highlight of the visit, optimistically conveying Walt Disney's early vision of a future utopia with a touch of fantasy based upon 1950's and 1960's imagination. The 2015 Brad Bird film, Tomorrowland, largely embodies all these traits, telling of a futuristic alternative world that a youngster can be transported to upon being recruited to the realm by its benign agents. Not all is well in the alternate fantasy world in Tomorrowland, though, and a puzzling adventure yields a convoluted series of paradoxes that left critics and audiences feeling good but not necessarily impressed. The movie was eventually written off as a major loss for Disney (estimates all exceeded $100 million in red figures), its confusing and unsatisfying Armageddon story negating all the positives of the film's impressive imagery and airy tone. Interestingly, Tomorrowland followed Jupiter Ascending in 2015 as a sizable Disney flop, both space-age science-fiction fantasy projects helmed by good directors and featuring excellent visuals but betrayed by nonsensical screenplays. Both projects were benefitted (but apparently not salvaged) by excellent scores from Michael Giacchino, who has clearly taken on the role of the romantic, classical, throwback composer of the 2010's. His knack for emulating a variety of Bronze and Digital Age composers has become overwhelmingly apparent during this time, and he is one of the few working in this era who can come close to replacing the vintage presence of John Williams and James Horner with powerhouse orchestral scores. While neither Jupiter Ascending nor Tomorrowland will be rejoiced by the public masses in ways similar to Williams' classic scores, there really is nothing as close to emulating such music as these efforts by Giacchino. Bird specifically requested a throwback score for Tomorrowland, not a surprising choice given their three previous collaborations together, ensuring that electronics and post-modern ambient droning were not to factor into the equation. Once again, Giacchino responds with thematically rich and orchestrally and chorally accessible music with hints of Williams and Horner sprinkled throughout, yielding a score even more enjoyable than the one for Jupiter Ascending.
