Alexandre Desplat (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows) out does Michael Giacchino in the hurried cellos department with his Godzilla score.
I’m not sure if this is how Desplat typically does things (the only other work I’m familiar with by him is his understated Zero Dark Thirty score), but this OST is kind of amusing in its franticness. Having just seen the film it was scored to I can understand why.
Favorite track: “Godzilla!” at 0:00-2:06.
