The sequel to 2012's The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron features music composed by Oscar nominee Danny Elfman and Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise alum Brian Tyler (Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World). Tyler has said that, while influenced by previous Marvel movie scores, the music pays homage to John Williams' sci-fi and adventure classics. Alan Silvestri's theme from The Avengers was also incorporated. Appropriately lavish, brassy, and adrenalized, the original score was recorded with the London Philharmonia Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios early in 2015 and, at well over an hour in length, was released by Hollywood Records in the spring of 2015.

Danny Elfman's score for the blockbuster sci-fi comedy Men in Black ranks among his best work, capturing the ridiculous, tongue-in-cheek thrills of the film with ease. It has the same oversized, cartoonish appeal of Elfman's work for Tim Burton, but with a less whimsical flair, which suits the action film. And even though the music perfectly suits the film, it also works as an individual entity on its own, which is what makes the record a satisfying listen.
