This double CD set contains ALL the music Miklos wrote for this movie. Although the movie was quite long and a little drawn out in places, this CD set is pure joy. The textures Miklos wrote are lush and exhilarating, the melodies gorgeous and the harmonies have his typical stirring dominant bass line. The restored sound is breathtaking - it beats all other issues of this music.
If you're a fan of the immortal Miklos Rozsa, then throw away all previous recordings of this score and buy this set. You definately wont regret it. It is an amazing music time-trip back to the ancient world via Hollywood.
If there's any complaint, it's the price. But really, it's probably better to spend money on great music like this, than music for a movie that noone will remember in two years.
