19 tracks from the television series Survivor.
Now that the Survivor television spectacle is over and done--evil Richard having snatched the coveted million bucks--legions of fans are undergoing Survivor withdrawal. What to do with our Wednesday nights now that we can't watch a bunch of unwashed folks eat rats, scratch bug bites, and scheme behind each other's backs? How about recreating a Survivor scenario in your living room? Load up on sand, rice, and rodents, invite a few friends over (you can vote them out by midnight), dream up a few immunity challenges, and play the Survivor soundtrack to fully capture the effect of the island contest. With the new-agey drums and chants of the main title theme, "Ancient Voices" (the extended version included here!), the pomp and circumstance of "Big Drama," the thrilling trill of "Survivor Yell," and the suspense of "Tally the Vote"--all culled from the show--you can recall the best days of the Tagi and Pagong. --Tod Nelson

To me the CD is a must "only if...": 1. You are a fan of Survivor, 2. and/or you love the Ancient Voices (Main Title Theme).
The rest of the CD is not as special as the main theme, oh I wish it was longer!
But here is a good idea for any Survivor fan like me, go ahead and enjoy playing "Survivor Board Game" while playing this CD in the background... oh it helps to live the real experience :-)
Overall, the music lacks significant cohesiveness in tone to make it really compelling as a whole and sometimes employs curious instrumentation and style, but individual pieces like Voices of Heaven and the main theme (Ancient Voices) are emotively powerful in their simplicity despite the use of what sounds like "sampled" sounds in place of natural instruments like the strings in Ancient Voices.
The CD does a better job than many soundtracks in including key musical moments that should be there even while it is understandably constrained to include the almost glaring departures from the kind of atmosphere you'd expect from music for such a subject.
All the stand out tracks are here: Ancient Voices, I Can See It (think, the reflective waterfall-idol-tossing ceremony from Outback), Voices of Heaven, and the foreboding tribal council backdrop Tally the Vote.
Four fantastic tracks with other nice cues is enough for me to give this album a thumbs up. If you have a favorite cue or two, chances are it's here.
