First Listen of M83's 'Oblivion' Score is Hypnotic: AUDIO


Can't say I have a strong opinion about the upcoming Tom Cruise sci-fi flick Oblivion, but given this look at 'StarWaves', a piece from the score, by M83's Anthony Gonzalez and Joseph Tripanese, there's at least one thing to look forward to about it.

Have a listen, AFTER THE JUMP...

Also, perfect music for a snowy afternoon, those of you on the East Coast.

  3. It won't play for me. When I go directly to the site, it says "Back Lot Music hasn’t shared any public sounds."

  5. Electronic music is making a comeback in film. Remember Tangerine Dream.. they ruled the 80s! M83 is awesome too.. wish them a long life!

  12. Obviously the summer of 2013 is going to be an great summer for epic soundtracks from incredible movies.......

  13. There's no better way to ruin a good movie than putting Tom Cruise in it.

  14. Meh, they have done better in their own albums IMO. "Skin of the Night" and "Lower Your Eyelids to Die with the Sun" are my favorites.

  15. If there is a soul, it is made from the love we share.

    There are many ways to describe Oblivion, but the softly spoken afterword by Tom Cruise's character really makes you feel the human heartbeat of this sci-fi epic.

    As always, the trailer is full of explosions and set pieces. Oblivion the movie is an entirely different beast that values a human story and characters that are driven by common purpose. While the cast is tiny, I found much to enjoy from Cruise, Riseborough, Freeman and that Nordic guy from Headhunters who is showing up more frequently in Hollywood blockbusters. Aside from unusually limited screen-time, Morgan and other supporting cast are effective and memorable.

    The threads of the plot are well-woven and I won't give anything away, so what I will tell you is to prepare for a powerful journey into the unknown where nothing is what it seems. Explosive set pieces take a backseat for sci-fi philosophy with twists to spare.

    Oblivion ticks all the boxes for correct use of literary devices and establishes enough original cannon to stick in your mind long after the credits start rolling. It is a distinct success among the largely abysmal offerings of 2013 so far, don't miss it.
