Buy it... if you desire the equivalent in Javier Navarrete's career to what Thor was to Patrick Doyle in 2011, an interesting and at times entertaining infusion of intelligence into the otherwise mundane blockbuster sound of the 2000's.

Avoid it... if a continuation of Navarrete's own mannerisms is what you seek to hear, for he has indeed compromised his personal style significantly to adhere to this genre's expectations.

Wrath of the Titans: (Javier Navarrete) The fad of milking Greek God myths for studio profit continues as the Clash of the Titans franchise incomprehensibly lurches on in Wrath of the Titans, the sequel to the concept's 2010 resurrection. You can check your brain at the door once again with the 2012 extension of beastly battles from the Old World, its script lacking true ingenuity (or even cohesion) and its visuals a perpetuation of tired digital techniques that attempt to inspire momentary awe rather than illuminate the nuances of the story. Returning in the lead is Sam Worthington as Perseus, who is called to action another time to contend with the wars of Zeus, Hades, Ares, Poseidon, and other gods over control of the planet. This time, the gates of the underworld prison of Tartarus are thrown open because of humanity's lack of sufficient prayers (where's that weed-sympathetic Pat Robertson when you need him?) and all sorts of nasty Titans and Middle Earth-like welfare candidates with really bad teeth are unleashed upon the land. Perseus is tasked with assembling Zeus' Thunderbolt, Hades' Pitchfork, and Poseidon's Trident to form the Spear of Triam, the only non-battery operated tool that can slay the beastly Kronos, this movie's badass alternative to the beloved Kraken. Along the way, there are disobedient Minotaurs and Cyclopes as well as a hot royal babe in need of some attention by the end of the picture. Pay no mind to the largely poor critical reception that greeted the film in theatres; such applications of logic to this intellectually devoid franchise have no impact on the spending habits of movie-goers eager to rot their brains with such entertainment. While not blasting to the same profit margins as its predecessor, Wrath of the Titans did offer Warner Brothers some meaty international returns. With much of the crew (and even some of the cast) replaced for this sequel, it wasn't surprising to see the fate of its soundtrack slip away from Ramin Djawadi, the veteran Hans Zimmer/Remote Control clone responsible for the wretchedly predictable music for Clash of the Titans (a score that rates so high on the asininity meter that it didn't merit a normal review at this site). With the arrival of director Jonathan Liebesman on the scene, there was rampant speculation in the film score collecting community that his regular collaborator, Brian Tyler, would bring his sense of style to the concept's music.

The insert includes no extra information about the score or film. As in many of Amazon.com's "CDr on demand" products, the packaging smells incredibly foul when new.
