Product Description

ZIMMER HANS / GERRARD LISA GLADIATOR (MORE MUSIC)

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

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.

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.

I had no idea that a second disc of music from Gladiator was about to be made available; hence I was very pleasantly surprised when it appeared on the shelves, and I picked it up without hesitation.
Perhaps to clarify; the music here aren't really "from" the motion picture. Rather, the majority of the tracks are alternative versions of Zimmer's works for Gladiator, unused music, and "initial" versions of the music that finally appeared in the movie. The disc itself is reasonably well-filled, and there is a nice five-page fold out with excellent linear notes written by Zimmer on a track by track basis, and the reverse end has a beautifully laid out series of pictures from the film. In Zimmer's notes, he writes how did inspiration for the track come about, thoughts on it, and on occasion notes why it wasn't used eventually in the movie. In addition, there is enough variation here from the original motion picture tracks, so listeners who are interested in this disc but want to be sure that the music isn't simply rehashed or "extended" versions can be confident.
The tracks that I suspect will be highlights for many include track 1, which includes contributions from an Armenian instrumentalist, and even a spanish guitar part that though sounds more in place with a Zorro movie but made for excellent listening nevertheless. Track 2, "Now we are free (Juba's mix)" is one of the many variations from the end-credits music, with the vocal part still being done by Lisa Gerrad. It was definitely very interesting to hear what the fabulous end-credits music *could* have sound liked if this alternative had been used instead!
