Title - 'Eddie The Eagle' [The Score]
Artist - Matthew Margeson
Not to be confused with the 80's star-packed musical (vocal) soundtrack jamboree for this film, the score for 'Eddie The Eagle' here for review today is composer Matthew Margeson at his composing finest, trust me.
The score to the feel good story about Eddie the Eagle, the British ski jumper that captured the hearts of the world with his Olympic performances, starring Hugh Jackman (as the drunken snow groomer Bronson Peary) and Taron Egerton as Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards, Margeson composes the original score with both verve and passion.
With this, remarkably, on his third major motion picture score, after 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' and 'Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse', here on 'Eddie The Eagle' he musically chronicles perfectly the British skier who in 1988 became the first competitor to represent Great Britain in Olympic ski jumping.
Chock full of 21 tracks, this is one of the best scores that really knows how to capture the 1980's here today. Orchestral workings can sometimes try and recapture an era, but Margeson's 'Eddie The Eagle' nails it as if it were recorded back then! A real joy to behold, as is the fun 80's vocalized version of the actual soundtrack album, look out for more great work from composer Matthew Margeson on the horizon.
