The Inside Out score is a brilliant cross-section of his prior works, blending the best-of-the-best into one thoughtful piece. Think of it as a blend of the passion in Up, the energy of The Incredibles and the "lightness" of Ratatouille. If you're avoiding any spoilers, do not read further as track titles and descriptions may give plot points away.
Overall the soundtrack soars and the power only continues to build during tracks like Subconscious Basement and We Can Still Stop Her — which is our personal favorite of the score with its big, suspenseful cues that demand your attention. Tracks like Rainbow Flyer build with intense action and then fall off to intense despair that you can feel in your heart — we even shed a few tears listening to this track.
It should also be noted that the physical copy of the CD comes with some wonderful liner notes where Pete Docter jokes about Giacchino's past and includes some praise, "In some weird way it feels as though Michael's music always existed, and that he just found it — that's how well his music fits. It's as if the music and picture always belonged together." The CD also comes with the Lava theme-song as well (whereas the digital release sells both separately). Pick up your copy on iTunes or Amazon.
