This listener was reminded by turn of Barry's Ipcress File, Steptoe and Son and even, during odd slow moments, Cheyenne's Theme from One Upon a Time in The West. But Zimmer brings a drama and urgency all of his own to the musical show. The result is compulsive and memorable listening with no real weak tracks.
This is one of the films where, on further viewings, one waits over for the music and image to slip together satisfyingly, at times complimenting each other like a hand in glove - a sure sign that, for once, things are done well. The liberating moment of Holmes' and Watson's first trip down the Thames for instance, or the climactic scurrying from Commons to Tower Bridge, right down to the dark, jubilant start of the end credits. The album recalls all those moments and can recommended thoroughly.
I think it is the pace of this soundtrack which instantly grabs my attention. It is woven together by a true maestro and the fusion of traditional gypsy-style melodies, Irish reel undertones and a wonderfully harmonious discordant piano is the work of a true master and as a result is one of the finest soundtracks of the past decade.
The diverse range of instruments which blend together seamlessly for Zimmer's score of Sherlock Holmes, is an impressive feat. The tracks go from being quite fast paced and exciting, to being dark and ominous. The true triumph of the CD would have to be near 20 minute long Track 11: 'Psychological Recovery... 6 Months'. It is an enthralling piece which explores all of the CD's main themes as well as introducing new and exciting ones with a wonderfully epic crescendo that will make any listening experience, a memorable one.
A true masterpiece from a true Master.
The one draw back for me personally is that I generally only listen to music when I'm driving and there are several very quiet moments that I couldn't hear over the engine noise. Still, that should only worry others who drive loud cars (I have a Land Rover). For quiet cars, or sitting at home, this is a great listen.

I enjoyed the film but actually prefer the soundtrack - but then it's Hans Zimmer, need I say more? The man is a genius!Published on 10 May 2013 by juicym8
it matched the racy action of the film perfectly but still stands alone in the music genre in its own right.Published on 25 Mar. 2013 by mixed feelings
Saw the film and thought the music sounded good, but when i got the cd through the post the case was broken even though it was sent in a jiffy envelope. Read morePublished on 12 July 2010 by Fay Angell
Hans Zimmer has written some of the best film music around. I loved his score for 'The Rock', 'Gladiator', 'Batman Begins', 'Crimson Tide' etc... Read morePublished on 7 May 2010 by Amazon Customer
Zimmer's music for Sherlock Holmes might have matched the mood of the film perfectly - but why did this otherwise fine composer waste his time on such an unworthy subject? Read morePublished on 11 April 2010 by Barry M. Edwards
