The Avengers Movie Suite

The Avengers Movie Suite
Music by Alan Silvestri

While we listen, this movie suite shows us that Mr. Silvestri is definitely in the house. He has taken the Comic Action Adventure genre and schooled many of the current crop of composers on how to achieve complete mastery. Since every scene cannot be a pitched battle of good versus evil, he has utilized a variety of his skills to build the intensity properly with carefully layered themes and although he has embraced the synthesizer, he certainly has not forgotten about the rest of the orchestra's instruments. With a timing of 31:19 we end up with an entertaining romp full of bombastic horns, thumping percussion and harrowing sound. Of course, you will enjoy this one!  -MJ
