Editorial Reviews

'The Pacific' tracks the intertwined real-life journeys of three U.S. Marines - Robert Leckie (James Badge
Dale), Eugene Sledge (Joe Mazzello) and John Basilone (Jon Seda) - across the vast canvas of the Pacific Theater during World War II. The miniseries follows these men and their fellow Marines from their first battle with the Japanese on
Guadalcanal, through the rain forests of Cape Gloucester and the strongholds of Peleliu, across the bloody sands of Iwo Jima and through the horror ofOkinawa, and finally to their triumphant but uneasy return home after V-J Day.
The music featured in this mini-series is by award-winning film composer Hans Zimmer, and Geoff Zanelli and Blake Neely.
Zimmer has composed music for more than 100 films, including the blockbusters The Lion King, Rain Man, Gladiator, The Last Samurai, Pirates of the Caribbean and The Dark Knight.

When the TV mini-series Band of Brothers first aired in 2001 it was hailed as a great piece of television art; a thoughtful, emotional, well-produced, well-acted and well-directed look at the lives - and deaths - of the men who served in the US military in Europe during World War 2. Almost a decade later, the same group of talented individuals have come together again to make The Pacific, which tells the simultaneous story of the men and women who fought in the Pacific theater against the Japanese at Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, Okinawa, and all across the Pacific Ocean. The series stars Joseph Mazzello, Jon Seda, William Sadler and James Badge Dale, and began airing on HBO in the United States on March 14, 2010.

The late, great Michael Kamen wrote one of the finest scores of his career for the original Band of Brothers series. For The Pacific, the producers turned to the composing trifecta of Hans Zimmer, Geoff Zanelli and Blake Neely to write almost nine hours of music for the series. It's rare these days for this many composers to receive formal credit on any project, but when there's this much score required for an undertaking of this size and scope, it makes sense to split up the duties. It's unclear which composer wrote which cues, but thankfully their styles here are seamless: both Zanelli and Neely have worked for Zimmer at Remote Control in various guises, orchestrating and conducting and writing additional music, and as a result the listening experience on this extended album is an excellent one, free of jarring transitions between styles.

I haven't seen "The Pacific" miniseries yet, so I don't know how well the soundtrack fits the film. However, standing alone, The Pacific soundtrack is pretty good. It is pretty low key, and often very melancholy. There's certainly nothing like the heart-pounding battle tracks in Hans Zimmer's Gladiator or the emotional highs of Pearl Harbor. Nonetheless, The Pacific seems well suited for a historical drama about war. Even without having seen the series, the music's sadness strikes me as very appropriate given the horrors of the Pacific front. If I were to rate music on its ability to emotional move me, The Pacific definitely gets 5 stars. I only wish the song about the atomic bomb ("New Kind of Bomb") had been more memorable or distinct from the rest of the track. It seems like if any track should stand out, that would be it.

The Pacific is the new miniseries on HBO that takes a look at WWII in the Pacific Theatre, which is mostly looked over in films and TV. The Thin Red Line is so far the best war film that deals with the fight in this particular area. Of course if you've seen Band Of Brothers then you'll know that these Spielberg/Hanks produced miniseries aren't Malickian in nature. They are about telling the stories of the heroics, courage and honor of the men who fought and died. The score had to reflect this.

The unbelievable task of scoring this monster epic series was handed to Hans Zimmer, Geoff Zanelli and Blake Neely. Zanelli has stated that he spent 9 months working on this. The score itself is not an action score if that's what you're expecting. Think The Thin Red Line but woven with the heroism found in Zimmer's score for Pearl Harbor. The score is an immense journey of tragedy, sacrifice and finding strength within.

There are certain cues on this release that I found just absolutely stirring. Tracks like "We've Gone Respectable", "Even The Trees Hate Us" and "Where Do We Go From Here" will shake your emotional core. Truly beautiful and moving music that reflects the stories being told. The score is not afraid to embrace the darkness of war, which so many scores do not. Most scores like Saving Private Ryan and Flags Of Our Fathers, while great, will stick only to the heroic route and never say "Hey, this is terrible stuff and I'm going to make you feel emotionally vulnerable now." That's what The Pacific does. It makes you feel emotionally vulnerable. Not so much as to the extent The Thin Red Line did, which is a score you should never listen to you unless you're prepared to shed some tears.

We purchased the soundtrack to the mini-series THE PACIFIC, because when we listened to the preview tracks, we knew it was perfect for our needs. You see, my husband and I own, operate, and curate THE MOUNTAINEER MILITARY MUSEUM, in Weston, WV. The soundtrack, which loops constantly, has added to the reverence of our displays. I love it when the visitors say, "The music is sad". I say, "Exactly, right!". When visiting the Museum, and listening to the music, if you don't leave with a lump in your throat, or a knot in you stomach, or you are visiably 'moved to tears', then you don't understand our veterans service, sacrifice, and for some...the ultimate price that was paid...for US.
