Soundcast Stereo (Episode 12) Reacting to 'The Marvel Symphonic Universe"







Episode 12 - Reacting to "The Marvel Symphonic Universe"

Tony Zhou's Youtube channel "Every Frame a Painting" recently posted one of their most viewed videos to date, "The Marvel Symphonic Universe" where the MCU's original scores are critiqued and demonstrated to be "forgettable" by the general public.  Erik and Christopher react and discuss several of the key points made in the video essay ... some of which they agree with but several of which they do not.  Is the music of the Marvel Cinematic Universe truly forgettable?  If so, why?
