CD REVIEW - Directors Cuts: Action 3

Directors Cuts: Action 3
Music by Various Composers
Directors Cuts DCD025
16 Tracks 50:00 mins

The latest in this excellent production library music series is a third offering of tracks suitable for trailers and the like for films in the action genre. This time however, the overall feel to the album is not full-on, exciting action, though it does have its share, but rather to create a mood of tension and apprehension, largely achieved through electronics.
Featured composers are Geoff Zanelli (2 tracks), Ramin Djawadi (1), Gavin Greenaway (1) and less familiar names like Atli Orvarsson (4), Bart Hendrickson (2), Stephen Rees (2), Josh Klein (1), Oswin Mackintosh (1) and the team of Waddell/Parnell (2).
Standout tracks, for me, are the powerful "Drama King," the tense race against time "Vex Appeal," the menacing mover "Scream Play," and the Goldsmithian, piano-lead "Panic Button."
This is the first of a batch of four new CDs recently sent to me by Extreme Music. Watch out for my coverage of the others over the next few days.
