I will be starting off the series with a look at the Central Intelligence soundtrack. This soundtrack is composed by Theodore Shapiro (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Tropic Thunder) and Ludwig Goransson. The first few tracks are reminiscent of spy soundtracks, heavy with the drum beats and synthesized harmonies. Easy to hear are the similar compositions to the film, Spy (also composed by Shapiro). The song, "Central Intelligence" feels like a sort of CSI intro with a modern pop twist. Most of the album is similar to this genre with a few love interludes to connect the probable chase scenes that are on screen. This can be heard in the tracks, "Sleepover" and "Homecoming King." These string melodies are mysterious but also somewhat inspiring as they glide between the other tracks of the score. Overall the score acts as another addition to Shapiro's filmography, but there is nothing really special about it.
Other soundtracks released this week: Finding Dory
