'Gears Keep Turning' and 'Finally A Tomorrow' are the best songs on this album. I love how they've added in a choir to work in with the deep sounding movie style of the orchestra. Gives the few songs they appear in an epic kind of feel. Each Gears of War Soundtrack has been really good and like with each game they've merely improved them. This one was brilliant! I highly recommend it to any Gears fan interested in this type of music. It fitted the events of Gears 3 perfectly.

I have all the other Gears of War scores, and this one is right up there with the other 2. Perfect balance makes you feel the game play and storyline as you listen. I recommend it to everyone who loves this type of music you won't be disappointed. Gears of War is seriously Epic.

Steve Jablonsky (known for his work on the Transformers films) has made a name for himself with the Gears saga, creating dark, intense sound-scapes with gut-wrenching emotion. Even though he didn't work on on the first Gears game, his work with Gears of War 2 was fantastic; the theme "Armored Prayer" is known to every Gears fan. But when he signed on for Gears 3, he had to create a sound that wasn't necessarily hopeful, but encouraging. The sound with Gears 3 is dark, brutal, and somewhat sad, but at the same time sparks a sort of light within us; something that happens to the characters in their darkest hour in the game. To summarize the score itself, it's a mix of Hans Zimmer's Gladiator, Richard Gibbs' Battlestar Galactica, and Boris Salchow's Resistance 3

Overall, a must-own for anyone who appreciates classical/instrumental scores or movie/video game music.

Just like in the GoW2 soundtrack, Steve presents us with a musical score again worthy of a full-length feature film, full of rising hope and subtle throwbacks to earlier cues of loss and despair. My favorite of the scores, Gears fans will instantly recognize many of the tracks and I would personally recommend those who love the Gears of War franchise to consider picking this up.

Steve Jablonsky returns to the franchise with this hard-hitting action score. Jablonsky's first outing with Gears Of War was with the second game when the developers decided to seek him out. It was clear that they were after a "Transformers" sound for the game and that's exactly what Jablonsky delivered. The score ended up being really successful. The music gave a grand scope to what was a grand scope game. Jablonsky now tries to replicate the success he had before and expand on it.

If you are looking for the same epic goodness that Jablonsky delivered last time then you'll be in luck. The score delivers on that front. The music incorporates lots of techniques and structures that Jablonsky has made his own over his career. Since this is a game score you will have the occasional repetitive looping tracks, but the way the album is compiled it really strives to give you a progressive listening experience. Now, we do get a lot of score on this CD. With almost 80 minutes of music we get a pretty decent representation, but after sitting through the experience I found it hard to distinguish tracks from one another. The experience did become sort of one mushed together jumble. I also felt much less dramatic building this time around, and once I finished the CD I felt like I wanted more. The overall experience though is a worthwhile one.

While I really loved Jablonsky's last score I was hoping he would have done a little more expanding for this outing. We get a lot of the same and the score itself is void of the thematically driven tracks that the second game had. The score is very good and considering the game it fits like a glove, but once the CD ends you may find yourself lacking any lasting effect from the score.

Steve Jablonsky is an AMAZING composer! He scores many great films as well. Gears of War is an icredible story, and the score was just so masterfully written for it. It's absolutely epic!

Not all the music from the game is on the soundtrack; otherwise, would have given five stars. I personally think the music was great, but that's me. I know there's others that probably think otherwise. Like I said before, had all the music from the game been on here, I would have definitly given five stars. That's the only thing I hate about this purchase.

This soundtrack is awesomely daunting! Excellent balance of percussion, strings and vocals. Wonderful experience. Couldn't wait till this album came out and Steve certainly does not disappoint.
