Game Of Thrones Season 2 Soundtrack Review: This is a review of the television score Game Of Thrones Season 2 by Ramin Djawadi.

“Games of Thrones season 2 has surpassed season 1 in every way, including music with better buildups, more excitement and better themes.”

Game of Thrones needs no introduction, as I am willing to bet that anyone who reads this review will be familiar with it. Season 2 continues where season 1 left off, but with more bloodshed and carnage than ever. Season 1 was just a teaser, and luckily Ramin Djawadi who scored season 1 is back with more music for season 2.

Track List

1. Main Title 100
2. The Throne Is Mine 80
3. What Is Dead May Never Die 100
4. Warrior of Light 80
5. Valar Morghulis 100
6. Winterfell 100
7. Qarth 80
8. Wildfire 80
9. I Am Hers, She Is Mine 100
10. Pyat Pree 80
11. Don’t Die With a Clean Sword 100
12. We Are the Watchers on the Wall 80
13. Pay the Iron Price 100
14. One More Drink Before the War 80
15. House of the Undying 60
16. Stand and Fight 100
17. The Old Gods and the New 80
18. Mother of Dragons 100
19. I Will Keep You Safe 80
21. Three Blasts 60

I mentioned in the intro that season 1 was just a teaser and that is also true for the music. I really enjoyed the music of season 1, a very consistent and high quality score, but it lacked something. It was like it was climbing the mountain, but never got to the top except for a few cues like ‘Main Title’ of course. Season 2 still has the amazing ‘Main Title’, but it offers so much more.

There are cues like ‘What Is Dead May Never Die’ that has a patient buildup but with wonderful rewards. There are moody cues like ‘Valar Morghulis’ and ‘I Am Hers, She Is Mine’, also with a splendid buildups. Terrific and heavy action is also present in ‘Don’t Die With a Clean Sword’ and ‘Stand and Fight’. The many cues in between are not fillers either, but they are part of a larger plan that fits perfectly for what we are about to discover in season 2 of Game of Thrones.

Conclusion

Games of Thrones season 2 has surpassed season 1 in every way, including music with better buildups, more excitement and better themes. There’s simply more of everything and shouldn’t be missed for any fan of the show or just good fantasy music.

GEEK SCORE: 87
