xXx: The Return of Xander Cage
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composer: Brian Tyler and Robert Lydecker
Performed by: The Hollywood Studio Symphony
Label: Varèse Sarabande
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 17 February 2017

Varèse Sarabande release the soundtrack for xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. The film features original music composed by Brian Tyler and Robert Lydecker. The third explosive chapter of the blockbuster franchise finds extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage coming out of self-imposed exile and on a collision course with deadly alpha warrior Xiang and his team in a race to recover a sinister and seemingly unstoppable weapon known as Pandora’s Box...

It will come as no surprise to discover that Brian Tyler and Robert Lydecker's score for xXx: The Return of Xander Cage represents an adrenaline fuelled collection of tracks perfect for this action adventure movie. The album contains 21 tracks (1 hr, 10 min, 47 sec) and delivers exactly the right balance of epic themes and more mellow moments.

As well as the thumping tracks, highlights include 'Launched', which represents an atmospheric build up of tension; 'Rock Paper Scissors Grenade Launcher' is not far removed from a modern James Bond piece; 'Wave Riders' brought to mind Alan Silvestri's work on Back to the Future and Predator; while 'Brotherhood' crams in loads of beautiful and epic themes.

It's a score that works well as a stand alone album. If you love action adventure soundtracks then you'll love this.
