While The Hangover was certainly successful, few would have pegged it as the beginning of a three-part epic about bachelor parties gone horribly awry. Four years later, that successful film has turned into a successful franchise, and Christophe Beck's surprisingly thrilling score has been collected here on The Hangover Trilogy. Like the films themselves, the music here seems to get bigger and bigger, growing from its humble beginnings as a bar crawl across Las Vegas before expanding in scope as it becomes a globe-spanning adventure. Devoid of context, the score feels as though it could come from any number of blockbuster action franchises, but when paired up with an ensemble comedy, it takes on a life of its own.
