Watch this movie... LOUD!

This just has the sound of music composed by some of the great composers of centuries past.

Still one of the best I've ever heard.

It's been used in a dozen trailers, most prominently in the ID4 trailer. And why not? Hans Zimmer created 2 of the most powerful themes in the past decade for this movie. It's so empowering that it'll fill you with confidence and defiance.

There are only 5 tracks on this CD (all horribly out of order and with incorrect titles) even though it lasts over an hour (the longest track is almost 25 minutes long). It was a bad mistake by Hollywood Records to organise the CD this way as you have to skip thru a lot of tension/filler music (this CD has plenty of exactly that) to get to the good bits.

There is an extended score out there featuring an additional 10 minutes of music, it has a blue cover instead of a red one and has a correct track listing in chronological order. As follows:

1. Opening/Conflict/Alabama-9:42
2. Resurrection-9:47
3. Little Ducks-2:03
4. 1SQ (Alternate)-11:09
5. Mutiny-8:58
6. Day 12-5:44
7. Three, Two, One-1:54
8. 3:00/1SQ-16:09
9. November 2nd/2SQ-2.32
10. End Titles-7:33

Total Time 75:55

It's a more complete package but a little hard to find so you might have to make do with the commercial release. Still a great purchase and I highly recommend.

Watch this movie... LOUD! Pay attention to how the musical score really carries the emotions of this film.
In a day where most film score try to be subtle and hide in the background, Hans Zimmers score melds with Tony Scott's film like two lovers having foreplay continually staying on the brink of climax. But the climaxes do come, and when they do they are very satisfying.
I'm a bit disappointed by some of the reviews this CD has received. Have people forgotten that this music was written to accompany a film? I hear complaints that the tracks are too long or that there is dead(?) time in the composition. Hans Zimmer certainly didn't write this score to appease an MTV audience. If you need something with constant movement and don't understand the point of the ambient parts in a piece like this, I have some really good Trance CD's I could recommend to you.
If you are the kind of person who likes to listen to a score away from the film or appreciate classical orchestration in general I cannot recommend this CD enough. This is one of the best examples of Hanz Zimmer's work (and he has many great examples; also see the scores for Backdraft and Gladiator). If you call yourself a Hans Zimmer fan, you aren't until you have this CD.

Here lies another great score by Hans Zimmer in the likes of The Rock and The Peacemaker. Here, the music runs at one hour, split into only 5 tracks. The music overall is powerful and testosterone filled with a large orchestra and an all male choir. The main theme is one of Zimmer's best that perfectly represents the trials and tribulations of battle in a submarine. "Mutiny" starts out with the chorus humming along with a synths and a gently played guitar that then leads into the main theme introduced lightly and then once again in full force. "Alabama" is the longest track I have ever come across on a film score album, clocking in at almost 24 minutes! "Little Ducks" features the choir singing the traditional Navy hymn, "Eternal Father Strong to Save", which is perfectly appropriate for a film like this and sounds wonderful as well. "1SQ" is a more hard hitting action cue than the others, as "Roll Tide" comprises the main theme and the Navy hymn together. All of the tracks basically sound the same, which is why I didn't go into specific detail on each one. That would take forever, especially on "Alabama". But all in all, a great score that I think you will enjoy, especially if you are a Zimmer fan.

This is one of my favorite movie soundtracks and I have a lot of em. Especially good for driving and working out. An amazing number of movie previews use cuts from this soundtrack - listen for it at the movies. I believe this is the definitive Hans Zimmer soundtrack. Check out his other stuff too - especially The Rock, Broken Arrow, The Peacemaker, and Backdraft.

How would I know that a score about some people in a submarine would be so great? Crimson Tide is an excellent blend of electronics, orchestra, and chorus. It beats The Hunt For The Red October in suspense music but it has a little bit of trouble competing with its excellent theme. The theme played mainly by french horn and chorus in the minor key is very masculine and fits the spirit of the submarine, bursting out with power in the major key when taken up by the trombone section. The villian theme heard on track 2 near the end is very hostile-sounding but doesn't carry out long enough to be considered a theme. The use of "Eternal Father Strong To Save" by Zimmer is a nice touch to the score. As I said, Crimson Tide sounds great with suspense music but it gets tiring after a while, especially considering that the cd consists of only 5 tracks of massive size. I mostly have to skip around until I get out of the low suspense parts. Near the end of massive track 2, a chilling male chorus plays as a confrontation occurs between the main characters, one of the best parts I've heard from a chorus. At track 4, the music starts to get frantic and confrontational but a still has some boring suspense music. I recommend this to anyone who likes the score to Hunt For The Red October or masculine brassy scores, but just make sure your cd player has a fast-forward button because you'll be using it quite often. It has small great parts between tension music.
