Last Samurai Soundtrack - Very Accomplished, 30 Jun. 2004
Zimmer has taken his previous work and added to it to create a truly accomplished soundtrack. The reason it has some much merit is that the music seems so completely in line with the essence of the film. So, you expect an American propoganda-fest and are instead greeted by a carefully constructed and reasonably historically accurate description of events.
Each track mirrors the highly emotional events of the film. Once you have seen it you can almost picture the dancing of the warriors around the tiger and the callous shooting of the brave samurai in the field.
Really can't recommend enough...but only if you've seen and enjoyed the film.
