All of the music is beautifully composed. My personal favorites are "Home Invasion", "Angkor Wat", and "The Brahman".
The former has a Techno feel to it, while the two latter, have more of a spiritual, or world music feel to them. I enjoy it every time I listen to it (in fact, I'm listening to it right now). And you might too.
it's a cool soundtrack,worth keeping.
... except that it wasn't released...
My disappointment stayed with me until I discovered that the Tomb Raider score would be turned over to this accomplished and rather ecclectic composer, so I prepared once again to be the proud owner of a new Revell score...
... and now I am. Weeks after the soundtrack album and the film itself were released, the score CD hit stores and I made my way in haste. I wasn't disappointed. Revell pitches his themes with a varied range and emotional context, from jarring electronic rock to subtle ethnic vocals and dramatic choir arrangements that filter through the action of the film and, like all of his collaborations, succeeds in accompanying yet never overcoming the on-screen action. Some of the better tracks are in the latter half of the film, namely "Angkor Wat" and "The Planetary Alignment".
It's shortcomings are few, just an odd track here and there that doesn't match("The Brahman" is just annoying) but one thing I did notice is that the tracks themselves are mistitled or simply out of place. But, c'est la vi, the music is still there!

A very good soundtrack. It is still enjoyable to listen to, even after all these years. It can be mellow at parts, which can be nice when trying to wind down for the day.Published 12 months ago by M. Axe
Excellent CD to listen to. Upbeat and thrilling, especially for dancing or working out. Great drive CD too. Graeme Revell knows how to put together excellent soundtracks!Published on August 23, 2007 by F.R.
