AllMusic Review by

Composer Christophe Beck (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Bring It On, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) was given a separate release for the score from 2009’s Oscar-nominated comedy The Hangover. Clocking in just under half an hour (that’s with the myriad dialogue clips), it seems odd that the producers wouldn’t have thought it more appropriate to include the score on the rock- and pop-heavy original soundtrack version, as Beck’s music for the film, while appropriate and expertly crafted, hardly makes for a compelling listen on its own.
