The Hunger Games: Mockingjay (part 1) - James Newton HOward 11/25/14
What You Will Hear: The JNH you know and love. Themes and motifs that are much more fully realized than the previous two films. Plus: Katniss Everdeen's first hit single.
Standout Tracks: The Arsenal, District 12 Ruins, The Hanging Tree, Air Raid Drill, Victory
Will you be humming along? I dare you to not sing along to The Hanging Tree.
The score this makes me want to dust off: The Postman - James Newton Howard
Will I come back to it? Yes. This is the Hunger Games score I've been waiting for. Not a big fan of the first two efforts - they never seemed to be complete. This one rises closer to the series' fullest potential.
