Antonio Pinto is collaborating with DJ Ali Disco B aka Dudu Aram in this documentary about London and the events leading up to the 2012 Olympics. This score isn’t your typical Antonio Pinto score and has been heavily influenced by Dudu Aram. The cues are mostly synth and almost dance-like and there’s very little orchestral score. You can definitely hear Pinto’s influence in cues like ‘Charles From Brazil’ that has a wonderful violin sequence.

This score is quite pleasant to listen to although it gets a bit boring really quickly because it doesn’t really have an emotional hook. The cues feels bland and uninteresting and before you know it, the score has ended and you can’t remember any of it.

Conclusion

The Odyssey is an enjoyable but easily forgotten score. It plays heavily on synth but there’s not much to hold on to in the end. The cues goes from one to the next and it never grabbed me even once.

GEEK SCORE: 71.6

Buy the score at Amazon, Amazon MP3 or iTunes.
