Forget for a moment about the video game "Medal of Honor" (as terrific as it may be). Forget about first-person shooting, about enemy A.I. and Frames Per Second. For a moment, think about war, particularly WWII. No war is ever a good thing, but this one was fought against one of the most cruel enemies to ever face humanity. Those who fought them and rose above and beyond the call of duty, those "ordinary men who did extraordinary things", are well remembered on this CD. From the stirring title theme onward, this could be one of the best soundtracks ever. In classic Spielberg-ian style, Michael Giacchino serves us an epic musical adventure; perhaps he's "the next John Williams"? Breaking free of looping, droning video game music, the game uses the sweeping orchestration not as a background noise, but as a dramatic device all it's own. Because some of the pieces were written to match scripted events not in the game, listening to this CD evokes images of a non-existant "Medal of Honor- The Movie". The hero's theme is as adventurous as anything Indiana Jones has ever heard, while the Nazi's big, bold brass theme is suitably tyrannical and arrogant. Also, listen for the bonus tracks: a Berlin big-band broadcast, the game's climactic ending, and a very wobbly national anthem. At it's core however, this CD evokes the same feeling that the game does: the urge to be a hero.

The "modern warfare" genre is something that many composers attempt and fail at. It started back in 2001 when Black Hawk Down was released. For that film Hans Zimmer composed a unique and brutal contemporary sound for what was known as "modern warfare". The score was trashed by many for its heavy use of electronics, electric guitar mashed with cultural instruments. In that time it has become the score that has defined its own genre and has made those critics look very very foolish. Thomas Newman tried his hand at the style with Jarhead and Danny Elfman tried it with The Kingdom. Infinity Ward then took video games into that genre with Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare where Stephen Barton and Harry Gregson-Williams composed an amazing score. Modern Warfare 2 then featured the talents of Lorne Balfe and Hans Zimmer embracing and building off the style Zimmer crafted almost a decade ago. Now EA has decided to take its Medal Of Honor franchise into the modern warfare realm. For this Ramin Djawadi was asked to take the musical helm.

Medal Of Honor is a sacred franchise when it comes to music. Michael Giacchino started this franchise off in 1999 and in a sense it launched his career. Christopher Lennertz also made his mark on the franchise. So there were extremely high standards when it came to the music. Did Ramin meet those standards? Absolutely. First off, this score is unlike most modern warfare scores in that it DOES NOT treat the game like an action movie. The score is so poignant and emotional that it absolutely floored me. The hymn-like motifs that Djawadi has crafted give the score a special emotional weight. If you are expecting pounding synths and percussions from front to end then you may be surprised at the refined approach that Ramin took.

Don't get me wrong though.

Medal of Honor...Probebly one of the best CDs ever written! Even when it comes to comparing it to an actual motion picture soundtrack. Michael Giacchino is really just another name for John Williams. They are both very similar in their style, although Giacchino likes to stay with the strings a lot more then John Williams tends to. Tracks such as the main title (of course), taking out the rail gun, the radar train, panzer attack, rjuken sabotage, merker's salt mine, and the jet aircraft are my favorite. (and probebly always will be) Medal of Honor is also a good CD when it comes to the style that certain tracks are written in. While a few of the tracks are quiet and slow with strings and percussion, others are swift with brass and strings. If you are the type of person who likes CDs such as Cutthroat Island, Star Wars, Raiders of the lost ark, Rocketeer or anything written by their composers, (Williams, Horner, Debney, etc) this CD is for you! I can't tell you enough how good this CD is, and you will not regret it if you get it. Because as soon as you get it, you will have a friend who will want to get it! Buy it!

This is probably the best classical music I've ever heard. The music is mostly dramatic and sounds like the movie saving private ryan and like A war movie. So I suggest you buy this Soundtract at amazon because I looked in all most every music store and they don't have it. So don't let this good thing just pass you by, buy it, buy The Medal of Honor soundtrack! And trust me, you won't be dissapointed.

THE video game of ALL WWII video games, Medal of Honor and its sequel, Medal of Honor Underground, have the best of the best in orchestral sound tracks. The music is riveting! John Williams' strong influence in Mr. Giacchino's music is obvious......and wonderful. The deep, rich big brass sounds are as soothing as hot chocolate on a cold winter's night. I first played a selection as an online sample through Amazon.com and being a John Williams fan, and Star Wars and Indiana Jones nut, I knew at once I had to have it. I became more cognizant of the music each time I played the PSX game gunning my way past Nazi after Nazi in hedgerow country. My first full length playing came on my daily 30 commute to work which takes me through the Fort Knox Military Reservation. Driving south on US 31W (Dixie Highway) the first track began as I was passing the airfield on a gorgeous breaking dawn. Blackhawk, Chinook and Apache attack helicopters were silhouetted against an orange-pink partly cloudy Kentucky sky as brass and drums played in the background. Chills ran up my spine as I passed The Patton Museum and "The Home of Armor". Visions of tanks in the snow covered Ardenne Forest and landings on Juno, Sword and Omaha beaches flashed before me accompanied by sounds of artillery and rapid machine gun fire. Then followed a fly over view of thousands of white cross grave markers in the Normandy Allied cemeteries. This music could have easily been the soundtrack to Saving Private Ryan, Patton, Star Wars, Indiana Jones or the soon to be released Pearl Harbor. The main theme reverberates throughout the soundtrack. Visions of the game field run through your memory as you replay every frame in each mission. Nazis cry out and fire as brass, drums, violins and accordians play on.Read more ›
