Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

If there's one thing film producers and record executives like more than Success, it's Success: Part 2. Thus when Ridley Scott's high-tech sword 'n' sandal epic scored both Golden Globe wins and Academy Award nods for Best Film and Best Score, it was a sure bet that another volume of Hans Zimmer's and Lisa Gerrard's music for the film couldn't be far behind. Though not exactly leftovers, the tracks here sometimes point to the fact that there wasn't enough fresh material to fill this volume out, hence we get some remixed cues, a handful of familiar music with dramatic dialog excerpts edited and superimposed (or misplaced, with decidedly mixed results), and even a beat-heavy, dance-club mix of "Now We Are Free." With a little over half an hour of entirely fresh material and some souvenir dialog snippets over the rest, there's enough here to please Gladiator die-hards. Also of note: guitarist Heitor Pereira's flamenco-flavored flourishes are better showcased throughout; and "The Gladiator Waltz" serves up one of Zimmer's original synth demos (with a dash of Russell Crowe dialog up front)--a dramatic amp-up of Holst's "Mars, the Bringer of War" that's a prime example of the composer's state-of-the-art digital orchestral conjuring. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars You dont know what you're missing! March 24, 2001
By Nicole
Format:Audio CD
I LOVED the first Gladiator soundtrack, and I still to this day play it over and over.
Upon hearing about the release of a second "Gladiator" CD, my first reaction was excitement and I couldn't wait to hear it. Then I read that many of the songs on the second CD weren't even in the film, and I became skeptical. I thought that it might disappoint me, as I put the original soundtrack up on such a pedestal. Nevertheless I bought it. As I held it in my hand I immediately wanted a refund, as I was too scared that it would disappoint me and ruin such a good thing between me and my baby, "Gladiator" (LOL).
But something made me put it in my CD player and press "play" and boy am I glad I did. It's no wonder they made a second CD- Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard certainly know how to compose music! It makes me wish that the film was an hour longer, just so they could use all this unused music! Hans gives a wonderful commentary of the composition of these songs and what emotions he wanted each one to radiate. Some of the songs were actually put into various scenes of the movie, before finally being scrapped, and it's great to imagine what scene X would have been like with "this" particular track.
There are, of course, still many tracks on this CD that are in the movie- like the unforgettable scene where Maximus is riding frantically on his horse to reach his wife and son, and many other songs which are featured throughout the movie which have been mixed together with dialog from the movie.
Keep a special ear out for "Duduk of the North". This is so beautiful, and towards the end, Hans wrote in a Spanish theme, which is just indescribable. I play this one over and over and over.

The original score for Gladiator was a grand triumph for composer Hans Zimmer. Unfortunatly, this cd follows a trend during the latter half of the 1990's. When you have a successful score cd, follow it up with a cd full of dialogue, demo tracks and occassional new music. That is what this cd is full off. I expected more of the great music from the movie, instead I was disappointed bitterly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a must-have May 9, 2001
By oamaz
Format:Audio CD
First of all, this disc should've been called "Exercises in making the music for the motion picture Gladiator", to warn off those eager Gladiator fans from spending their unrefundable 14 bucks. The disc contains 4-5 decent finished pieces (tracks 1,4,5,12 and 14) that due to some reasons have not been included into the original soundtrack. The rest are half-baked, unorchestrated and repetitive "tries of the pen" by Mr Zimmer & Co. Altogether the tracks are either too short or too rough to create a coherent musical canvas (unlike the superb first CD). Other reviewers express dissatisfaction with a few Spanish guitar motives, but they are not bad, except, of course, track no. 10, called... "Maximus", which is an offence, for the only image that comes to your mind listening to this cheesy track is (hold tight!)... A Banderas.
I was especially freaked out by the last track, "Now that we are free" disco version (it reminded me of another shameful creation: chart-friendly adaptation of "Don't cry for me, Argentina". For Christ's sake, it's a dying woman's song!) And why on Earth it's called "Maximus mix"? Should be N'Sync's or "Deep Forest" mix.
At least I could read H Zimmer's comments to each track and thank his prudence and God's providence that resulted in the magnificent first original Gladiator's soundtrack. So guys, you can't step into the same water twice. I could have survived without this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for the extra tracks February 28, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I was a little worried when purchasing this. It's one of those second CDs released because the first is so popular, but due to a lack of extra tracks, they add dialogue to some of them.
I was actually pleasantly surprised about the dialogue. Though I suspect that I may get tired of it in the long run (after all, I like to write to the music I listen to, and sometimes dialogue can ruin that for me) the voices actually work very well for the most part. Track four works particularly well. Granted, the dialogue came from one of my favorite scenes in the film.
They tried to experiment somewhat on a few tracks. Those that repeat from the original CD are actually earlier versions of the tracks, and thus do deviate somewhat. There is also a techno version of "Now We Are Free" as the final track on the CD. This is very good, so long as you like that sort of thing. (I do) And face it, it's pretty easy to picture that extra beat in the song.
Of final note, the first track is extremely pleasant. It wasn't actually used in the film, but you can still get a feel for what the film is while listening to it.
The one thing that I wish they had put here (and only because I loved the scene in the film) is a dialogue version of "Am I Not Merciful?" The dialogue just adds that little something that makes the track extra creepy.
If you liked the first soundtrack, I would say you will also like this one. There are similarities, but there are also certainly differences. If you didn't like the first one, I rather doubt you'll like this one.
