Composer Steve Jablonsky's atmospheric score for Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer's period crime drama Gangster Squad strikes a nice balance between contemporary action cues and classic film noir textures. With a tip of the hat to Ennio Morricone's excellent work on 1987's Untouchables, Jablonsky rolls out galloping, urbanized takes on Old West motifs, especially on set pieces like "Welcome to Los Angeles," "Always Knew I'd Die in Burbank," and "Gangster Squad." Elsewhere, the dense and propulsive "Light 'Em Up" and "The City of Angels" recall the composer's contributions to big-budget action films like Battleship and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. ~ James Christopher Monger
