Stream Michael Giacchino's full Jurassic World score online for free

06.09.2015

Nothing will ever quite compare to the immortal John Williams and what he has brought to cinema. His sweeping scores and musical accompaniment have become as integral to the films they are featured in as some of the actors on screen. So, having JURASSIC WORLD with a different composer feels a little wrong. While Don Davis did his best with JURASSIC PARK III, JURASSIC WORLD is harkening back to Steven Spielberg's original movie and needs an equally epic score.

If there is any composer up for the challenge, it is Michael Giacchino. Long associated with J.J. Abrams, Giacchino's work has become an example for how sweeping musical scores can and should be. The Oscar-winner will bring his talents to Colin Trevorrow's sequel this weekend and you can take a listen to the full score right now via Spotify.

Like his work on SUPER 8 and STAR TREK, Giacchino's JURASSIC WORLD score is appropriate for the film and imbues a sense of wonder, dread, and adventure all at the same time. I wouldn't compare it to John Williams, but it definitely can hold it's own against the iconic JURASSIC PARK overture. If anything, hearing this just makes me want to see the movie even more.

JURASSIC WORLD opens this Friday.

One of the more exciting aspects of the movie I'm looking forward to. Hope the music can recapture the magic of the original film.

Seems decent enough, but what's with all the pun titles?

Michael Giacchino does pun titles with almost all of his soundtracks. Read the track titles for Star Trek, and Star Trek: Into Darkness.

It's good, but I prefer Michael's first Jurassic Park score back in the 90s

Yes, Jurassic World is Michael Giacchino's 2nd Jurassic Park score. He composed the score for The Lost World: Jurassic Park the Playstation game, which also happened to be the first orchestra composed score for a video game. I love his score for The Lost World video video game, which set the bar a little high for Jurassic World. His score for the Playstation game was thrilling, epic, terrifying, it was the music of an adventurous journey into a scary world, a perfect match with the visual

His score for the Playstation game was thrilling, epic, terrifying, it was the music of an adventurous journey into a scary world, a perfect match with the visual scenery, absolutely beautiful. His score for Jurassic World is good and solid, but it feels a bit lacking, especially when I look at my description of Michael's score for the Playstation game. Jurassic World is also lacking a tense fright vibe which we've been getting from the trailers and ads. The score for the raptors in the original Jurassic Park was terrifying! Jurassic World's score seems to be a lot less terrifying and more joyous, maybe a little too joyous at times. I will say that the track Raptor Your Heart Out does have a slight familiar sound to the score he composed for the Velociraptor in The Lost World game.
Can't make a full critique of the score until I hear it with the film, and find out how much of the film's complete score actually made it onto the released soundtrack.

Yeah, I gave it a listen and it's just not one of his stronger scores. I liked he touched upon the original themes and dug the "As the Jurassic World Turns" track and he even used the Lost World theme for a split second in 'Our Rex is Bigger than Yours'. I dig Giacchino but I feel he spread himself thin between this and Tomorrow Land.

I notice the slight theme nod to The Lost World: Jurassic Park in the track for Our Rex is Bigger Than Yours. Honestly, it was so brief that I was not sure if it truly was The Lost World theme or not. Wish there was just a little more of that theme in the score.

Nothing will compare to the original. The original is even played when you go to theme parks such as Six Flags Great Adventure. It's a great theme to hear play as your entering or even exiting the park, lol. Just shows how grand that theme is and how effective it can be within the movie or outside.

P.S this movie looks terrible. Awaiting CONSUMER reviews over paid website reviews, lol.

I'd rather see a review for the movie.. but I guess it's as shit as the trailers look, so they're not allowing reviews until the day it hits the screen!
