Robot Overlords
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composer: Christian Henson
Label: MovieScore Media
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 14 April 2015

MovieScore Media releases Christian Henson's score for Robot Overlords. Starring Gillian Anderson and Ben Kingsley, Robot Overlords is set in a dystopian future where Earth has been conquered by powerful robots from a distant galaxy. The human survivors are confined to their houses and must wear electronic implants, risking incineration by robot sentries if they move outside their designated homes. A revolt ensues...

Christian Henson's score for Robot Overlords contains 26 tracks (1 hr, 01 min, 49 sec). Most are instantly forgettable, but there are enough interesting themes to make this worth picking up.

As usual, when Henson (The Devil's Double; Hysteria; Malice in Wonderland; The Secret of Moonacre; Sinbad), delivers the goods he does so in style. And, in truth, the tracks that are full of background filler material help to heighten the effect of the epic theme based segments.

It no doubt works a lot better in the movie than it does as a standalone score, but there are enough quality segments of music here to make you sit up and take notice.
