There's no denying that Alexandre Desplat is one of the best composers working in Hollywood. His work on Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets may never be considered some of his absolute best, but it's still really good and effective. I enjoy listening to his score, which is presented on disc one of this two-disc set, as well as all the songs from the film, which are presented on disc two. The vinyl edition of this soundtrack mixes everything up, omitting some tracks as well, so I actually prefer the CD version of this album. Cara Delevingne's song is really good, and "A Million on My Soul" is an outstanding debut track from Alexiane. I'm really anxious to hear more music from these two women.
