Michael Kamen & Dario Marianelli Scores for X-MEN and BUMBLEBEE Released Today
La-La Land Records has announced its May offerings, which include two limited edition genre releases. The first is X-MEN: Expanded Limited Edition, a 2-CD set featuring the score by Michael Kamen from the first X-MEN movie. “Composer Michael Kamen expertly melds acoustic orchestra with a wide range of synthesizer textures, samples sounds and processed effects to fashion an exciting and urgent-sounding contemporary score that would not only play a vital role in successfully launching the blockbuster X-MEN motion-picture franchise and, with its unique sound, but also pave the way for such notable scores by others like UNBREAKABLE and BATMAN BEGINS,” writes the label. “This expanded, remastered 2-CD presentation of the composer’s last score for 20th Century Fox features the film score on Disc 1, with original album tracks and additional music showcased on Disc 2. Produced by Mike Matessino and Neil S. Bulk and mastered by Matessino, this limited edition of 3000 units also features exclusive, in-depth liner notes by writer Jeff Bond and heroic art design by Jim Titus.

Also announced is the first CD release of Dario Marianelli’s (DARKEST HOUR, ATONEMENT, V FOR VENDETTA) score to the 2018 Paramount Pictures big-screen Transformers adventure BUMBLEBEE. “For this critically lauded prequel to the blockbuster Transformers film franchise, composer Marianelli fashions a beautiful orchestral score that teems with emotional wonder and drama as it explores the heartwarming friendship between a thoughtful, resourceful teenage girl and the titular Bumblebee,” writes the label. “Produced by Marianelli and mastered by Mark Willsher, this limited edition CD release of 2000 units is the official debut of this wonderful score. The exclusive, in-depth liner notes are by writer Daniel Schweiger, featuring comments from the composer, and the charming art design is by Dan Goldwasser.”
