Star Trek Score by Michael Giacchino - Early Thoughts

I had my reservations about the new score for Star Trek. What elevated a film like Insurrection was the beautiful score by Jerry Goldsmith. I've always felt that the score is an important component of the movie making process and I wasn't convinced that Giacchino was quite up to the task. Don't get me wrong, his scores for Alias, Fringe and the Medal of Honor games have all been superb, but Goldsmith is a very hard act to follow and unfairly I know I would have compared.

I needn't have worried. As the soundclips at the Colosseum link prove; i think this guy's nalied it. Phew!

Check out the clips
