Product Description

Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer managed to bring both a sense of fear and foreboding and the spirit of heroism to his score for this 2001 war epic. Faith Hill's soaring ballad There You'll Be leads to Zimmer's pieces Tennessee; Brothers; Attack; December 7th , and more!

Amazon.com

According to a Hollywood tradition that stretches all the way back to From Here to Eternity, there's never been anything quite so romantic as the idyllic days and hours before torpedo and dive bombers from the Japanese Imperial Navy blew the bejesus out of the unsuspecting U.S. fleet anchored at Pearl Harbor. Far be it for producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Michael Bay to, er, rock the boat. Just as Bruckheimer and Bay did with Armageddon (where romance blossomed in the idyllic days and hours before a Texas-sized asteroid threatened to blow the bejesus out of Earth itself), they've again turned to über-hitmaker Diane Warren to set the tone; as sung by Faith Hill, "There You'll Be" strikes the perfect balance of apocalyptic bathos, as instantly inviting--and ultimately hollow--as an 89-cent chocolate bunny. Composer Hans Zimmer fares a bit better, though his piano dirge and orchestral score occasionally get mired in the syrup as they build toward the inevitable. The action sequences themselves are somewhat subdued (especially by previous Zimmer standards), with "December 7th" even echoing Platoon and Barber's Adagio for Strings. Crucially, Zimmer evokes the tragic loss that goes hand in hand with heroism, often no mean feat in a modern computer-effects-laden, megabudget blockbuster-in-waiting. --Jerry McCulley

I have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Pearl Harbor soundtrack as much as the movie itself, being an avid soundtrack fan, and a Hans Zimmer fan as well. I had wondered what kind of music he would compose for this fateful event; whether it would be heavy on the war and fighting aspect with lots of action cues; or more somber and sad, dealing with the tragedy and seriousness of the events; or uplifing, dealing with the triumph brought out of the tragedy. I have to say that Zimmer has come through with a powerful soundtrack, dealing with all of the above types of music, as well as the romantic aspect of the film as well.
Obviously I have not seen the movie yet, as I am writing this three days before it comes out, but I know a decent bit about the movie, and using the titles of the tracks,can kinda figure out what is going on in the movie during the cues. As I mentioned before, this score covers the full scope of the spectrum needed for fully appreciating this event, and the drama surrounding it.
The CD starts off with a Faith Hill song, which wasn't a bad song, but is also not anything special or attention grabbing. The first score track though, the second on the CD is absolutely breathtaking, and unfolds the main theme for the movie. It is a soft and slightly subdued piece of music at times, outlining the sad nature of the movie, but it is also grand and sweeping at other times, often crescendoing out of the softness into a majestic and inspiring theme. This track embodies what "Pearl Harbor" is about: triumph rising out of tragedy, and the spirit behind. It isn't specificaly patriotic in sound, but one can't help but feel proud to be an American while thinking about the images this music evokes in one's mind.

This soundtrack has come under much criticism. Because of this I was skeptical of buying the cd, but I did anyways. This cd is beautiful! Some people believe that it is too short (about 46 minues), but I feel that it is just right; not too much, not too little. Hans Zimmer does a great job of capturing the essence of the movie. Faith Hill is not one of my favorite singers (far from it), but her song is a great song, deseving of an academy award nomination. Tracks 2 through 5 tell the story of the love triangle within the movie. Tracks 6 through 8 accompany the attack on Pearl Harbor and its aftermath. Finally, track 9 does a wonderful job of connecting these two elements of the film into a great conclusion. While I usually buy soundtracks to movies I want to see as soon a they come out (usually before the movie itself comes out), I would reccommend buying this cd after seeing the movie. It will give you a better sense of feel to the music.

I wonder what goes through the minds of the people who wrote those other reviews . .. the ones who say this is a bad soundtrack. I really don't think they even saw the movie or own the soundtrack. Well, lets put it this way. . . The first thing I did when I got out of the theater was went over to the mall and bought this soundtrack. The music from Pearl Harbor is perhaps some of the most beautiful and moving music I've ever heard. It really brings you back to a more innocent time, and makes you stop and think about how beautiful life is and how terrible tragedies such as the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor that take away that innocence of life are. This is beautiful music, no other way to describe it. Hans Zimmer kinda takes a different direction than he has with Gladiator and The Thin Red Line. I think thats why people gave this movie bad reviews, because they wanted to hear the same adolescent macho cut off people's heads themes that Zimmer used in Gladiator. (in fact, what moved me to love the music from Gladiator was Lise Gerald's tracks)Well, to sum it up, this is just simply a beautiful soundtrack. If you are looking for intense, pules pounding explosive music, then this is not for you, but if you just want some beautiful music to sit back and relax to and contemplate life, and if you thought that Pearl Harbor was as good as I thought it was, then buy this soundtrack.

The musical score from "Pearl Harbor" is a true work of art. You will experience a full range of emotions as you listen to the songs, for each has its own musical theme. Tracks 1-5 are obviously romantic pieces that are reminiscent of a time period before America lost her innocence. The next two tracks are rather sad in reference to the attack on Pearl Harbor, but still very relaxing. I just adore the last two tracks! They inspire me to be proud of my American citizenship and liberties! I can just see James Doolittle and his volunteers risking their lives as they try to get their planes into the air. Hans Zimmer is the most gifted of contemporary composers and he deserves an award for this soundtrack. Zimmer truly composes music from within his own heart, and those emotions flow into ours as we listen to his music. "Pearl Harbor" is defintely the best movie score I've ever heard and it enhances the dialogue and action of the movie beautifully! This is my favorite movie. It provides an opportunity for me to experience and comprehend an awful part of American history that occurred before my birth. I have seen "Pearl Harbor" five times. Buy the soundtrack!! It's a great stress-buster when you're stuck in traffic and a terrific gift for someone you love! Go see the movie if you haven't already and do not listen to the critics! This score is anything but "sappy."
