The musical samples sound great … & as usual the sections of the soundtrack offer clues to the chronology of events!

Also I think London calling is so emotive – cant wait to see the scenes that go with that piece

Guess though Varese Sarabande will decide to bring out one of those god forsaken 5,000 copies only, limited deluxe edition version in a few months though…

I love the Names. Earth Bound and Down sounds like something from Jerry Reed’s Smokey and the Bandit. Lol. Music sounds ok for what I have heard. Will have to wait till I can hear all of it.

It seems that the “end credits” this time is stripped down to its final segment aka “Star Trek Main Theme”. Too bad. I really liked the upgrades esp. during the TOS theme (as heard in the videos from Giacchino’s recording sessions). Ditto, we’ll wait for the “deluxe edition”.

I’m also a little disappointed that despite Giacchino pondered about including more of TOS theme it seems it’s more or less the same amount as in the 2009 movie.

The “Kronos Wartet” had a chorus singing in Klingon!

Awesome!

Nah, I’ll wait till the 2disk edition comes out in a few months….

#6 days & counting…. tick tock tick tock …

Is Earthbound and Down a tribute to Smokey and the Bandit? LOL! If it is this film + it’s soundtrack deserve an immediate 5 star rating!!!!

The 2-disc version of the 2009 soundtrack was worth the wait, i have been playing it to death recently.

“Kirk Enterprises”
Hmmm, This one sounds hopeful like maybe the E doesn’t get destroyed, or maybe they get a new ship like at the end of star trek IV

Defiant

What? No End Credits track? :/

Trekboi
May 3, 2013 8:46 am

Why the Hell is it only 44 minutes of Music- why can’t we have a full soundtrack?

So they can sell us a “Special edition” later ughh.

May 3, 2013 9:36 am

Waiting for the inevitable extended edition CD set.
I’m not going to be double dipped again.

I don’t need two versions of this score.

May 3, 2013 9:43 am

GOOD: Massive. Moving. Evocative of TOS-era Steiner tracks.
NOT SO MUCH: 44 min?? That bizarre main theme.

The snippet of soundtrack three makes me think of the wrath of khan soundtrack, (the ending of the genesis countdown track)

Bill Murray

Kirk Enterprises clearly has a bit of Illya’s Theme from TMP.

Again with the puns?

May 3, 2013 10:29 am

Don’t like the back cover at all. Sorry but a damaged city?

Clinton
May 3, 2013 10:29 am

@23 Yes. I noticed that. As well as a tiny hint of “Wrath of Khan.” We may be reading too much into it, but I remember Mr. Giancchino saying he would sneak in a classic theme or two.

MelyBelle44
May 3, 2013 10:36 am

The track I find most intriguing (not the one I like best) is Meld-merizing.

Obviously, I assume it is referring to a Vulcan mind meld. But, the music itself sounds very intense and dangerous. It makes me wonder who the meld is with.

If it were lighter and more emotive, I would suggest perhaps Uhura or Kirk, but due to the booming nature of it, I have to wonder if it is Harrison?

Julian
May 3, 2013 10:41 am

@ 23 @ 26: Illya’s theme is very apparent in that track which excites me. I’m wondering if that is the one track he hinted at liking and put into the film. I am really hoping for more though.

Kirk's Girdle
May 3, 2013 10:43 am
Definitely a couple of stray notes from Ilya’s theme in Kirk Enterprises. Also, the first bit from Earth Bound and Down is very John Williams-like, but then he strays off again. It looks like Giacchino will be pounding us with the main theme over and over again – something I didn’t care for much in the first movie. I think he needs to build more themes into his work and not quite as much incidental music. ST09 only really has the main theme hook. Williams, by contrast, creates multiple themes for characters and places in every movie (the Superman main… Read more »

So it’s pretty obvious we’re going to be getting another longer edition if this is only 44m long.

@11, I couldn’t tell that by listening to the small snippet on his site. It seemed more like he put the tail end of the track as the sample. I’m willing to bet the intro to the track is the “Space..the final frontier” portion that Pine will no doubt recite in the film (along with..”it’s five year mission..” portion.

One word: LOST.

Seriously, has no one ever listened to Giacchino’s LOST soundtracks? Can’t anyone hear how it and Giacchino’s Star Trek scores aren’t similar, but identical?

Dr. Image
May 3, 2013 11:41 am

Very similar to his LOST work. A bad thing? Perhaps not. But he’s still no Goldsmith in his prime. (Though aside from TMP, Goldsmith got irritatingly repetitive- almost as bad as Horner.)

Sunfell

My copy should be coming from Varese Sarabande next week. Bummed that it is so darn short. But hey, it’s better than nothing.

I loved the Klingon Khorus. :-)

May 3, 2013 11:57 am

@23

The first few notes sounds like the TMP Overture to me. Is that also Ilia’s theme?

rfk
May 3, 2013 11:59 am

Sounds like if Giacchino chases an Oscar this year it will be due to his work on another film (once again).

Not sure why JJ doesn’t pick people who’ll do a better job for him, but if you consider this score, design of E which remains ungainly, the return of Keenser, etc., I just think he doesn’t care what any of us think. Maybe he just throws the work at people he likes.

Is there a way to listen to this if you don’t live in New York?

Curious Cadet
May 3, 2013 1:07 pm
Oh brother … What’s with Giacchino and these punny titles? In some cases they do a disservice to the seriousness of the scene … “buying the space farm” is obviously a death scene. Hopefully the musicians weren’t aware of the title when they recorded it as I can only imagine it would influence their performance. Imagine if this was the title of George Kirk’s death scene in ST09. @17. afort, “Kirk Enterprises” Hmmm, This one sounds hopeful like maybe the E doesn’t get destroyed, or maybe they get a new ship like at the end of star trek IV” Actually… Read more »

Guys, it’s NOT “Ilia’s theme”. Granted, it’s similar to it, but it was also present in the 2009 movie (track “That new car smell” if memory serves correctly)

MelyBelle44
May 3, 2013 1:50 pm

@38

Are you not being a tad spoilerish there buddy?

Julian
May 3, 2013 1:51 pm

@39 It definitely dates back to “That new car smell,” but if you listen carefully in “Kirk Enterprises,” there are hints of the TMP overture/Illya’s theme.

Julian
May 3, 2013 1:54 pm

Sorry for the double post, but also just put TMP score on Spotify and both parties would be correct. Is it Ilya’s theme, but if you watch the DVD, it’s also the overture.

Anonymous Coward
May 3, 2013 2:32 pm

Ilia’s Theme is def. given homage in Kirk Enterpeises, and like so much else in JJTrek, it’s the wrong choice for the wrong character for the wrong moment.

“The Kronos Wartet” – with Klingon chanting!

#40 Speculation is allowed. Something tells me you’ve been spoiled already.

Marcelo
May 3, 2013 3:01 pm

The Kirk Enterprises cue actually feels more like shades of Horner’s Wrath of Khan score. The Kronos cue is simply fantastic.

Caesar

Ugh, someone really needs to NOT let him name the tracks! These are AWFUL.

Sice Lost I love the way he names his tracks ;))

MelyBelle44
May 3, 2013 4:41 pm

@45

Er, yes. Speculation is allowed. Just as I speculated on who Spock may have done a mind meld with and what may have led to it.

Those were some very specific speculations that the person came up with.

Curious Cadet
May 3, 2013 5:30 pm
@49 MelyBelle44, Those are some very specific titles, suggesting ideas that have either been speculated here since December or directly shown to us in clips. The fact these titles are so specific and ordered suggests a certain way of putting some of those pieces together. In fact those titles are so specific I’m stunned that Abrams would allow them. They flat out tell us a character dies toward the end, after the clash with the vengeance, presumably having to do with the warp core (how stupid do you have to be to call a cue that), and the scene with… Read more »
