Will state-of-the-art Hollywood CGI fx and director Roland Emmerich succeed where Al Gore and many a frustrated environmentalist have largely failed: raising the world's consciousness about the dangers of global warming? Austrian-born composer Harald Kloser has been given some striking imagery to score -- New York City inundated by the rampaging floods of a new ice age; Hollywood itself beset and torn asunder by swarming tornadoes -- but the TV and European film veteran (this marks his big-budget American film debut) succeeds by largely underplaying his orchestral writing, imbuing it with a mounting sense of drama and inherent tragedy. The elegiac, bittersweet beauty of his main theme suggests a more organic take on Hans Zimmer, while elsewhere his cues show a graceful maturity that seems rooted largely in the 20th century Russian classical masters. And while Kloser gets ample opportunity to musically portray that humanity-polluted Nature can be one unforgiving mother, his work seldom condescends to its audience -- or sinks to the level of typical disaster film sturm und drang overkill. --Jerry McCulley

"The Day After Tomorrow" is a film that could easily have produced a cheesy, cookie-cutter, shallow score. Harald Kloser has done just the opposite--this score goes a layer deeper than it needed to, and therefore is a pleasant surprise.
The main theme, from the title track "The Day After Tomorrow", is unique and beautiful. This theme, which reappears in "President's Speech" with an even greater power at the end, is the reason I bought this soundtrack.
Many of the tracks are not enjoyable to listen to, however. If you have watched the film you are aware of its intensity, which is effectively reflected in the music. However, it isn't exactly relaxing to listen to. Tracks such as "Rio Grande" and "Because Of You" have intensity, but the beats in them make them enjoyable to listen to despite the high intensity levels.
"The Day After Tomorrow" is an amazing score, and it enhanced the film just as every good score should. I think it is safe to say that Harald Kloser will continue to write quality, moving music in the future. I look forward to his next project.

I was counting down the days untill the release of The Day After Tomorrow Score. Its come and gone and I've listened to the score about three times already. Its a very haunting and emotional score from start to finish especially the subtle female vocal in the first twenty seconds. The definate main highlights of this score would be "Tidal Wave" and "The President's Speech" where the use of heroic"ness" and chaos stand out on many levels. The reason I gave the score 4 stars instead of 5 is that the main theme isn't really all that great. I guess my opinion is that I was just looking for more of an impacting main theme (that's all). Other than that, this score is one of the best additions to my collection and can be to yours. A triumphant effort for new-commer Harald Kloser!

Wow.. um what can i say... hmmm. Oh yes AMAZING! I was never really into Kloser before really because I never knew enough about him. When this Score came out, I wasn't sure if I was gonna pick it up. I decided the heck with it. So when i got home i popped it into my cd player, and I fell in love with the cd. The music is absolutly amazing, the sound and quality of the music is unreal. The music puts you in a trance and you become one with the music I can't describe it!!. The best song on the whole track is no-doubt "Presidents Speech" this is the best song I have ever herd. It is such a slow and heart breaking song, i litterly have tears dripping down the side of my cheak while listning to it. the way he does it I don't know. But it always works, and I am a true fan of Harald Kloser.

Mr.kloser i truely thank you for the experiance that you have giving me in your music I can't wait for your next cd to come out I will be waiting for it .....

Clearly, The Day After Tomorrow falls under the category of a disaster film. More than any genre (except, perhaps, the small-minded date movie) these films use stock characters, stock situations, and stock dialogue. What a person can learn from Harold Kloser's score is that there is also a stock film score. There is nothing inherently bad about any of the music to be found on this CD; in fact, the music is altogether painfully adequate. And by adequate, I am also implying that it is forgettable. There are no epiphanic moments of musical splendor. There are merely the stereotypical sound bites that might have been sampled from any number of disaster films ever made.

The glowing exception is the main theme, which is beautiful but, nevertheless, cannot raise the music out of mediocrity. The theme is beautiful and simple and so exceedingly optimistic that I can think of no other film to use it in. I can, perhaps, imagine it playing during a rousing political speech by a charismatic leader. This is both a blessing and a curse. While the theme is more than listenable and certainly appropriate, it is also fairly perfunctory. It is no different from the beautiful theme that blossoms at the end of every second act of every disaster film ever made. I called the theme optimistic, and this is true--it is optimistic to a fault. It somehow manages to breed the sanguinity of a struggling mankind while purging itself of all genuine emotion and feeling. Inevitably, it does not come across as optimism but as the artifice of optimism.

Yet, the score is still worthwhile. It is not groundbreaking, it is not memorable, and it is not moving. But, then again, it has no aspirations to be. The score is as stock as every other component of a disaster film, and so it achieves its ultimate design. I own the score, and I will often turn to its main theme, but the remainder has been done better in better films by better composers than Harold Kloser.

I simply adore this soundtrack!
For anyone familiar with the movie I can safely say that the music matches the scenes perfectly.

My favorite track was Presiden't Speach, the music was powerful and majestic yet understated and leaving you with a deep profound dignity and respect for the forces of nature.

I collect Original Movie scores, and this one is in my top 5, its simply rich, gorgeous, goose bump on your arms music. It becomes more than music, it feels real and it's amazing.

Great purchase you wont regret and you will listen to it again and again.
