Star Trek – Original Score – Michael Giacchino
All in all, this is very impressive achievement from Giacchino, whose stock in Hollywood seems to be rising by the day. It’s clearly a notch behind the classic early Goldsmith and Horner scores, which are likely never to be bettered, but it’s also a significant improvement on the more recent Goldsmith TNG movie scores, and leagues ahead of anything Leonard Rosenman or Dennis McCarthy wrote for the franchise. The directness of the theme, the excitement of the action music, and the overall sense of energy and life makes it a thoroughly enjoyable listening experiences.
