THIS IS EPIC MUSIC: VOLUME 1 – Review

THIS IS EPIC MUSIC: VOLUME 1 offers a CD mixtape like no other.  Featuring music from all sorts of blockbuster movie trailers, you’ll be sure to hear a tune you’ll remember. I wasn’t too sure what to expect from this compilation at first, but during the first 10 seconds of the first song, I knew I’d found something amazing. I’m a huge movie geek, so scores are pretty high on my list of things I obsess over. I love that this album includes an assortment of various artists from various movie trailers. THIS IS EPIC MUSIC: VOLUME 1 showcases some strong material from all of our favorite movie trailers, most of which have been used in the trailers for said movies. Pretty great, right?

There’s no real formula for how the songs play out. It just varies and makes for an interesting train ride. We go from walking Middle Earth to battling evil in The Winter Soldier. It’s amazing and an experience like no other. So just put on your headphones, turn up the music, and relax.
