I liked the music in scene, but I didn't like the main theme at the beginning--it wasn't as elegant as my three favorites TMP, TWOK and TUS...those film's main themes are timeless.

I was absolutely blown away by the score. It's a shame there was no real opening theme, but that seems to be becoming a thing of the past...

I liked it, but not as much as I like the scores of Goldsmith or Horner. The new score is much better than Rosenman's work for ST IV, in my view. However, I listened to the CD before seeing the film, and I thought much of it worked better in the film itself than in isolation. I didn't think that the rock music fit in at all.

I have to disagree...the rock music did fit. Remember this is not entirely the same Kirk we are used to seeing...The rock music especially the Beastie Boys (nice touch) was a way of underlining the rebelious side of Kirk during the car chase scene. I dunno how many roadhouse type bars you have been in but I am pretty sure that Mozart and Bach were not on the jukebox. As classic as it gets is a little Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis where I go and hang out.

The first time I listened to it I wasn't sure how well it would work. It sounded to me a little too much like Giacchino's other work on Lost, MoH, M:I:3 etc.

That said, listening to it more it did grow on me, with my favourite cue being "Hella Bar Talk" and "Nero Sighted".

Now that I've seen the film I feel it complimented it well. It's not a superb or outstanding score but very satisfactory and suitable for the film itself.

It was great. A good sign is if it's memorable and it stays in your head. And it's still in my head. It had a very Trek feel to it as well. Up there with James Horner's theme. Which it still doesn't beat (James Horner is my favorite film composer by the way, so it'd take a lot to beat his music).

Michael Giacchino's awesome. As good as his Star Trek music is, it doesn't hold a candle to his music for "Medal of Honor". The music is chilling and beautiful. Makes me want to get the game again:

The theme consisting of only 16 notes was just repeated over and over again...
But That New Car Smell is excellent!
