5.0 out of 5 stars It does an amazing job to link the saga, 11 May 2005
This soundtrack is simply brilliant. The darkest movie needs the darkest score and Williams manages it perfectly with the simpyl awesome Battle of the Heroes, which is a track that grows on you every time you hear and outtrumps Duel of the Fates for sheer epic scale and emotion. The rest of the soundtrack sends the pulse racing through the wonderfully edgy and sinister 'General Grevious' and the dark 'Anakins Betrayal'. The link the saga and add a sense of hope to the score Williams inserts the 'A New Hope' and Leias theme which complements it perfectly.
Overall this is a dam good soundtrack which is the best of the prequels and takes star wars masterfully into darker and edgier territory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Gladiator, 3 Mar. 2005
This review is from: The Last Samurai (Audio CD)
This soundtrack is one of Zimmer's best works to date and spectacular with its use of ochestral rythms and native instruments. In true Zimmer style there are several catchy motifs used throughout, in contrast to other composers such as John Williams who would have perhaps had fewer 'tunes' and instead worked on creating atmosphere with more abstract sounds. However Zimmer creates both catchy motifs and atmosphere perfectly and steers away from the more pacey and 'synthesiser-orientated' scores done in the past, and instead delivers dramatic and emotional music which complements the movie perfectly and provides a very relaxing listen.
I prefer this score to Gladiator as it has more depth and texture to it, much better use of the orchestra and much less synthesised rythm littered throughout, unlike Gladiator and King Arthur where the consistent use of synthesisers in providing beats sound annoying and too artificial. With the exception of the 'Red Warrior' there is no use of vocals in this score, which it make stand out from Gladiator and allow you to appreciate the music even more.
Highly recommended soundtrack.
