5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music from a Great Movie, January 11, 2001
This review is from: Gladiator (Audio CD)
First of all, I'd like to state that Gladiator's soundtrack CD is the third one I've cautiously bought in my life (the others were Matrix and X-files: Fight the Future, I'd rate them 3 of 10: 3 good themes, rest - garbage).
Second, English is not my native language, that's why it's beyond my linguistic capabilities to express the whirlwind of emotions sweeping over you while listening to this majestic symphony. It's Music for All Times from a Movie for All Times: it lets your imagination roam and your pulse race, scenes and images from the movie (that you've all, hopefully, seen, except only if you're blind or from Mars) flickering in the subconscious.
Although my personal favorites are wall-shattering breath-taking "The Battle" and "Barbarian Horde" (much heard in the movie), slower, macabre and ominous "The Might of Rome" and "Am I Not Merciful", as well as hymns to human honor and valor "Progeny" and "Honor Him" are gems of this album.
To spare more talks (for music must be heard, and only afterwards discussed) I'd advise you not to listen to the CD without seeing the movie: it'd mean to deprive oneself of double pleasure - these two go together. I think it'll take a while for such a harmonious movie/soundtrack combination to appear that can equal Gladiator's. This CD proves again that music is the highest art to move a human heart. Mine has been shattered...
