The soundtrack to the 2013 superhero feature film Iron Man 3 is a symphonic collection of tracks perfectly suited to the big-budget action film. Composer Brian Tyler has plenty of experience scoring this kind of summer blockbuster fare, as evidenced by his soundtracks for such films as Alien vs. Predator, Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift, Battle: Los Angeles, and others. While most of the tracks here evince the film's dramatic, action-oriented bombast and tension-building qualities, Tyler also includes the cheeky '70s soul-influenced title sequence music, "Can You Dig It?," which evokes Robert Downey Jr.'s cool, wryly humorous portrayal of Tony Stark, aka Iron Man. ~ Matt Collar
