When Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks collaborated on the Academy Award-winning Saving Private Ryan, an abiding passion to further honour the young fighting soldiers of WWII was born in both men, resulting in Band of Brothers, an ambitious 10-part mini-series based on historian Stephen Ambrose's account of a 101st Airborne regiment as it fought its way across Europe. In scoring the sweeping project, Michael Kamen has eschewed much of the martial music familiar from past war epics in favour of the quiet, largely introspective sound that has informed modern battle films from Platoon through Private Ryan and The Thin Red Line. And if his reverential, often somber tones capture the dignity of the soldiers and the gravity of the events, they sometimes do so at the expense of other human dimensions--and the lively pop music of the 1940s. Still, Kamen's work strikes an impressive balance, fusing the pastoral with subtle modern rhythm touches and utilising spare piano solos, a darkly ironic use of Beethoven's String Quartet in C-Sharp Minor, and a memorable, elegiac main theme. --Jerry McCulley

You know you're about to watch something quite special when the score first kicks in and something inside you reacts instantaneously. I had the exact same feeling with "Gladiator" that I had with the first episode of "Band of Brothers" - expecting them to be both crash-bang-wallop action extravaganzas, but as soon as the music started, I realised that I was in for something quite different, and quite emotional. This score is fantastic, and again like the "Gladiator" score, perfectly captures the atmosphere of the film. This music really makes something happen inside of you emotionally, both raising your spirits and creating a sense of dread that match exactly the mood of the outstanding series that it accompanies. The standout tracks are the music for the title sequence, the 2 suites (tracks 2 and 3) and Winters on the Subway. Absolutely beautiful. It's one of those rare soundtracks that seem to have been made by the picture rather than for it. If you are as huge a fan of the series as I am, you could do a lot worse than buying this album. The title music is worth the money alone.

The music evoked another time, another place that those who were there can recall only in their memories and those who were not can but imagine. As Easy Company fought their way from Normandy to Germany the music was a wonderful way of reliving the episodes already screened and imagining the content of those still to air. Like many of the 'minmialist' sepia-like visual sequences, the music too had a simplicity that seemed to focus on just the essentials - nothing wasted, yet with a rich melange of mood. In my view one of the finest pieces of screen music for some time.

Since purchasing this album, I've listened to virtually nothing else. The Main Theme alone is probably one of the most moving pieces of music written in the last fifty years; the two Suites are admirable and vastly 'listenable' alternative takes on the rest of the score, and the selection that makes up the rest of the album is superb. The string quartet is enough to make you cry, and the final track, featuring a choral accompaniment to the main theme is strangley uplifting. The TV series is the ultimate statement of there being no glory in war, only infinite sadness, and this album echoes and enhances that sentiment without becoming mawkish. I know of no other soundtrack that both matches its source perfectly, yet remains a masterpiece in its own right. Utterly, utterly wonderful.

Superb from the first moment that you here the main theme you know this is something special!
Haunting, perfect and captures a past time superbly, soundtracks don't get much better than this!
To add to this the two Band Of Brothers Suite's are excellent, all the music reminds you of scene's from the series and its finale with Austria and the exceptional Band Of Brothers Requim put this in a class of its own.
Michael Kamen should be proud, this music is everything it should be and a little more. Buy and listen! For any person who likes classical film music this belongs right up there with John Williams! Superb and the emotional impact is huge. Thank you for producing such a wonderfull soundtrack!

I never really liked Michael Kamen (although I love a great deal of other film composers), but Kamen has, with this Coplandesque masterpiece, won me over. This is a fine score, even if, like me, you never found the music particularly interesting in the actual series. On it's own, however, this album really shines. Highly recommended - even if just for the wonderful suites (especially the second one). You don't even have to be a particular fan of the series to enjoy this music.

The stirring and meditative backing music from a truly awesome series.
Aworthy dedication to the incredibly brave and couragious men of the
