Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol
Making the impossible possible, Michael Giacchino's spy score pays its dues to the original Mission: Impossible.
The Tom Cruise spy epic sees director Brad Bird returning to the director's chair, but the music is all about Giacchino and another great composer, Lalo Schifrin. Importantly, he subtly weaves Schifrin's original Mission: Impossible music throughout the whole of Ghost Protocol, as if it's a continual reference point to the series' legacy. And somehow managing to balance that influence with plenty of his own energetic material is quite a feat.
