5.0 out of 5 stars Strong Melodic Theme, Great Orchestra+Guitar score April 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This score is strong; it's one of the best if not the best work done by Trevor Rabin. This score is one of my favorite simply because of the strong upbeat melodic themes across all tracks and the beautiful blend of strings and synthesized sounds and guitars make it even more capturing:

1 - Armageddon Suite - 10/10 - Main theme. Melody cycled by acoustic guitars, distorted guitars, synth and strings. Beautifully magnificent.
2 - Harry & Grace Make Peace - 9/10 quiet and serene, main theme is played by acoustic guitars with background strings. Beautiful.
3 - AJ's Return - 8/10 Upbeat cues, Strong synth, percussion.
4 - Oil Rig - 7/10 this track has some sort of old west cues done in a rock-eske mood. Lots of harmonica appearances. Very different from the rest of the score.
5 - Leaving - 8/10 This track catches my attention not only because of the cool main theme making another appearance, but because of the quality of the strings. It may be that Trevor is mixing real strings with synth ones. Very nice.
6 - Evacuation - 6/10 - This is a mix of dramatic cues, nothing linear.
7 - Harry Arrives At Nasa 7/10 - nothing radically different here..
8 - Back In Business - 8/10 - some nice blends of climax here.
9 - Launch - 10/10 - A strong track, climax, melodic cues slowly presented, there a re a couple of new melodic bridges, magnificent end.
10 - 5 Words - 10/10 short track but very cool.
11 - Underwater Simulation - 7/10 - smooth track, new cues, slowly reaching.
12 - Finding Grace - 7/10 - old west theme reappearing, not a personal favorite but very well done.
13 - Armadillo - 6/10 - old west theme again.
14 - Short Straw - 7/10 - not bad but more of a drama filler, the melodic cues aren't given much freedom here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff but way incomplete. November 26, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
How awesome is this music? It'll seriously blow you away. There are a zillion themes all played out in the most exciting and heartbreaking ways. But Harry Gregson Williams is entirely absent from this CD. His stuff is great in the movie but it ain't here. All we get is Trevor Rabin's contribution. It still rocks tho.
Track 1 takes a couple of minutes to get going but when it does the main Armageddon Theme and following guitar riff is pure Media Ventures class. Trust me, it's great.
Track 6 'Evacuation' ends with one of the biggest build-ups of powerhouse music I've ever heard. It'll seriously get your blood flowing. So much so that it would excite a corpse back to life. Great stuff.
Track 9 'Launch' plays the main theme in such a wistful, sentimental and determined way that you cannot help love it. Sooooo cool.
And finally, my fave track 'Long Distance Goodbye/Landing' is the best the CD has to offer. All the main themes come back here, played out in a wonderful variety of different cues. If you're a fan of movie music then you'll appreciate the coolness of this track.
It's a real shame the CD does not include the full score because it is sorely missed, I must say. The music definitely gets 5/5 but the CD gets 3/5. Tho I still would seriously stress that you get it. No doubt.

3.0 out of 5 stars GOOD. Missing the key elements. May 8, 1999
Format:Audio CD
When I ordered the score to this movie I had alot of expectations. But as I listened on, I felt robbed. It was missing the key music from the movie that is not on the CD. 1. The opening "End of the world" sequence, 2. The destruction of N.Y. and Paris. 3. The orbit around the moon and the crash landing of the Independence. 4. The death of Harry and the explosion of the Asteriod. 5. The closing credits after Aerosmith. These important elements contributed to the film and gave me a sense of patriotism. My question is what is the reason for editing the music in the film? Is there a soundtrack extension in the making? If, so when .

5.0 out of 5 stars Armageddon - true life story? July 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Jerry Bruckheimer's movie "Armageddon" starring Bruce Willis is one of the best films in the history. It has a script that can be real, that can really happen. The visual and sound effects are super! When I received the CD, I was in a shock! I have never heard such music. It makes me cry, that's how much it impresses me. I listen to it at my computer at night, when I work... It really helps...If You would ask me, I would say: BUY IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, but where's the whole thing...? April 29, 2004
By Ryker
Format:Audio CD
Rabin does an amazing job on this score. He blows an audience away with his work on this one. So make no mistake it rules. The only problem is this: Harrison-Williams work was left out of this one. He does an amazing job doing his part as well, but he was left out of the track. Go ahead and buy it because the music rocks, but if it had Harrison-Williams work on it, it would probably get a SIX out of FIVE stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where is the entire opening sequence??? March 26, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I like Trevor Rabin's score for this film. He did an excellent job mixing orchestral music with contemporary rock music. I was, however, dissapointed that some of the key music cues weren't available. The entire score for the opening "End of the World" sequence was missing. And cues for scenes like the destruction of New York and Paris gone. These were some of my favorite cues. This CD seemed to only contain the more upbeat tracks... Over all the soundtrack for this movie was good, it just could use more cues...
