Another masterpiece from Hans Zimmer. My induction was the 'Gladiator' soundtrack which admittedly is still my favourite. However, this offering is just as full of wonderful melodies and haunting harmonies that are subtlely crafted and beautifully orchestrated. A real 'must' for any fan of soundtracks. The production is excellent, as are the musicians with a special mention to the solo cellist!

This really moves me. I find "a small measure of peace" the most affecting piece of music I have ever heard. I often wondered why I liked watching "The last samurai" so much and then I realised it was because the music moved me so much. You might think "why would you want to listen to music which you know makes you cry?" but the experience of being "moved" makes us human I suppose.

I'm a big Hans Zimmer fan. So when I saw this available for a good price (and I liked the film anyway) I decided to take a chance and get it. On reflection I did the right thing. There are a few unusual passages in the score, but that is really down to the setting of the film. Mostly it works, is evocative and enjoyable too. Can't ask for more than that....

Saw the film twice- once in Japan and once in England.....
Bought the sound track as soon as it became available.
Hans Zimmer has cleverly composed these tracks and they cunjor all sorts of emotions and visions.
The orchestral organisation is unique and uplifting.
I would highly recommend this CD and I give it 5 out of 5.
I can't wait for the DVD.

Big fan of many film scores and this is up there with the best. Very cool combination of Easternern with western symphony. Multiple listens already after one week. Highly recommended.

My girlfriend arrived home from work while this was playing, "What is this??"

Have loved this soundtrack for ages - I'm a big Hans Zimmer fan. The man is a genius at mood evocation through film media. Would recommend this if you want to just sit and chill.I have the physical product but wanted the digital version for easy digital access. .

I loved the film, (and have it on DVD) and I thought the soundtrack to the film was brilliant, so I bought the CD of the soundtrack to add to my collection. :-)

Yet another great soundtrack by my one of my favourite film composers Hans Zimmer :-)

Never thought that film music had reached such high standards.
Very listenable ... Have used it while running.
Will be buying more film music.
