Just obtained the CD from Amazon UK (sigh of relief).

I put this score in with the Goldsmith greats. Anyway, why am I the first commenter, so many years after the CD was released?

If the score consisted of the main title theme alone, I'd have gone for it. Such beautiful simplicity layered with deeply emotive statements mingling, all the while building up to the fusion at the climax. Genius.

Yamamoto's famous comment could not have had a better master to accompany such solemnity.

I think it's because the ability to comment on a FSM cd by means of the board has been activated in the last half year? I'm not sure. That might explain why you are the first.

But it certainly deserves a comment if not two wink

Oops (sorry, Scoresalot). What he said!

Welcome to the boards, Grecchus, and congratulations on snagging a copy of this fabulous CD. When FSM released this score, back in May 2000, the Film Score Monthly was mainly a print publication and the website was not as sophisticated as it is today. In recent years, Lukas and his team have given the site a massive revamp and cross-linked its CD catalog with the message boards, so that is why there are no other discussions showing under the FSM listing for this disc.

There have been plenty of discussions about the music and this release, a couple of which you'll find here:
