Product Description

ZIMMER HANS / GERRARD LISA

Amazon.co.uk

If there's one thing film producers and record executives like more than Success, it's Success Part II. Thus when Ridley Scott's high-tech sword 'n' sandal epic Gladiator scored both Golden Globe wins and Academy Award nods for Best Film and Best Score, it was a sure bet that another volume of Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard's music for the film couldn't be far behind. While not exactly leftovers, the tracks here sometimes point to the fact that there wasn't enough fresh material to fill this volume out, hence we get some remixed cues, a handful of familiar music with dramatic dialogue excerpts edited and superimposed (or misplaced, with decidedly mixed results), and even a beat-heavy, dance club mix of "Now We Are Free". With a little over half an hour of entirely fresh material and some souvenir dialogue snippets over the rest, there's enough here to please Gladiator die-hards. Also of note: guitarist Heitor Pereira's flamenco-flavored flourishes are better showcased throughout while "The Gladiator Waltz" serves up one of Zimmer's original synth demos (with a dash of Russell Crowe dialogue upfront), a dramatic amp-up of Holst's "Mars, the Bringer of War" that's a prime example of the composer's state-of-the-art digital orchestral conjuring. --Jerry McCulley

Most people have woken up to the commercial manipulation of this - "More music from" tactic by now. If you have'nt,then please do. They did it with Titanic,and also with Gladiator amongst others. Since when does "More music" actually mean "Dialogue over music" and "Cues written especially for the album"?. This is what you have here. It's a patchy mess,and comes nowhere near the triumph of the proper Gladiator original Score. One or two unreleased Cues are on here. But the rest is false advertizing for the most part. False because odd new age mixes were not in the score,and overlaying dramatic dialogue over cues is not a soundtrack release, but just a way to suck money out of gullible people while the hype surrounding the film is at it's top. Do yourself a favour and avoid this one.

First of all, this disc should've been called "Exercises in making the music for the motion picture Gladiator"................ The disc contains 4-5 decent finished pieces (tracks 1,4,5,12 and 14) that due to some reasons have not been included into the original soundtrack. The rest are half-baked, unorchestrated and repetitive "tries of the pen" by Mr Zimmer & Co. Altogether the tracks are either too short or too rough to create a coherent musical canvas (unlike the superb first CD). Other reviewers express dissatisfaction with a few Spanish guitar motives, but they are not bad, except, of course, track no. 10, called... "Maximus", which is an offence, for the only image that comes to your mind listening to this cheesy track is (hold tight!)... A Banderas.
I was especially freaked out by the last track, "Now that we are free" disco version (it reminded me of another shameful creation: chart-friendly adaptation of "Don't cry for me, Argentina". For Christ's sake, it's a dying woman's song!) And why on Earth it's called "Maximus mix"? Should be N'Sync's or "Deep Forest" mix. At least I could read H Zimmer's comments to each track and thank his prudence and God's providence that resulted in the magnificent first original Gladiator's soundtrack. So guys, you can't step into the same water twice. I could have survived without this CD.

C'mon guys. Whilst I do like this CD, it has a number of failings :
The same song "Now we are Free" is re mixed for release on this album - twice. You can get away with it once, don't push your luck.
Dialogue and music - together. See, when this happens on other albums, artists go the whole hog and call it "singing" and try to speak in tune and time with the music.
It's a sequel to a superb album. If you do something great, don't cheapen it by releasing a follow up that isn't that good.
But then, there are some high points to balance this out :
"Figurines" is one. I just love that Yan Ching.
Ironically, although remixing is not what I like in follow up albums, the Juba mix of "Now we are Free" is quite good.
"Duduk of the North" and "The Gladiator Waltz" make the CD worth buying, all on their own.
But then, is anyone ever discouraged or encouraged to buy anything on this site by the way?

I was really excited when I heard that Gladiator's score was getting a second release with all those tracks which hadn't been included in the first album. I was really looking forward to get my hands on "Homecoming", in my opinion one of the best pieces of music in the whole film. But I'm afraid all the good news ends there.
Well, for a start it does come a bit late as it's almost been one year now since the film was first released. But what upset me most was to find out that someone had the not-so-brilliant idea of including movie dialogue together with the music. And this is not the first time this happens with a Zimmer score, the same happened with Hannibal's soundtrack. I mean it feels more like listening to the movie than to a soundtrack, it somewhat spoils it. I hope that this isn't going to be a new set standard in all of the next Zimmer soundtracks to come because that would be a real shame.

I thought this CD was excellent. Other reviewers have said they do not like having the dialogue from the film on the soundtrack, but I think that this, more than the first CD, allows you to be transported back to the film, the period and the feeling you get when you see the film for the first time. (Anyway I love hearing Russell Crowe!) There are some really wonderful tracks on this, track 4 being my particular favourite as I was disappointed it wasn't on the original CD. I have just driven 3 hours on the motorway and listened to the CD twice - what better recommendation can you get?!

I enjoyed this film and just had to have the soundtrack.

Bought this in America whilst on holiday on early 2000 as neither of the soundtracks had been released in the UK at that time.

Now the version I bought of this CD says 2000 and it’s exactly the same as the 2001 version.

This original soundtrack score was composed by the great composer Hans Zimmer.

You also get a lovely little booklet where both Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard talk about the music they have included on this CD. :-)

The booklet also includes some lovely still photos from the movie. 

Hans did a great job and composed some fantastic melodies that were that brought the film to life as the composer had included plenty of beautiful as well as some action packed and sinister melodies which fitted well with the film.

You’ll also find some beautiful choral work and solos in the songs that were written for the film.

Now this CD includes music that wasn’t on the first one, plus you have some of the actual film included so you can hear the characters voices, (which I like).

I’m soooooooooooo glad they released the rest of the music as I thought it was superb. :-)

I have a lot of soundtracks by this great composer.

I love playing this soundtrack as it reminds me of such a great film. :-)
