Musical scores for superhero properties have been gaining more attention as standards have risen among viewers.

For example, critics and fans universally praised Natalie Holt's score for Disney+'s Loki, with Holt even being snatched up to compose for DC's upcoming Batgirl HBO Max film.

Furthermore, Ramin Djawadi, previously known for his work on Games of Thrones and the original Iron Man, was brought on to compose the score for Eternals.

Fans finally got a taste of his score in the first clip released for Eternals. Now, fans can listen to that particular track in its entirety, as Marvel released it and another track from the film.

Shortly after Eternals director Chloé Zhao and composer Ramin Djawadi discussed the film's score on Twitter, Marvel Studios released two tracks called "Eternals Theme" and "Across the Oceans of Time."

Both tracks can be listened to below:

"Eternals Theme" - Ramin Djawadi

"Across the Oceans of Time" - Ramin Djawadi


Will the Eternals Music Stack Up?

In critic and fan reactions to Eternals, not much attention was given to the score itself. However, one critic, Matt Neglia, said that "Ramin Djawadi's score soars" despite being disappointed by the film. So, it's possible that, despite years of criticism for having forgettable scores for their films, Marvel Studios might have finally addressed it.

The musical motif for the team of aliens is undoubtedly apparent, if subdued, in the track "Eternals Theme," but the score shines more with the second track, "Across the Oceans of Time." Not only does it include beautiful singing and even a whole chorus, but it also has grandness to it that hopefully the film's visually will only elevate.

Fans will be able to enjoy the score more when Eternals is released in theaters on November 5, 2021.
