Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composer: Ramin Kousha
Label: Lakeshore Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 11 November 2014

Ramin Kousha's score for Sharknado is released by Lakeshore Records. When a freak hurricane swamps Los Angeles, thousands of sharks terrorize the waterlogged populace, and nature's deadliest killer rules sea, land, and air...

Okay, it's a silly idea for a movie and so you'd be forgiven for expecting a rather cheesy, quickly knocked together score. But you'd be wrong. Ramin Kousha delivers a soundtrack that is worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster.

Over this score's 13 tracks (28 min, 33 sec) there are more interesting themes and set pieces than are normally incorporated on soundtracks with a much longer running time. Yes, the under 30 min duration is a bit of a disappointment, but I'd rather have 30 mins of music of this calibre than an hour's worth of bland filler material.

For those that would normally shy away from picking up a score from a movie of this ilk... this score will make you think again.
