Two years later... and I still adore this score. Maybe one of my all-time favorites.

Whoever has not heard this amazing work, do yourself a favor and check this out!

Oh yes!

Along with The Invisible, I am Dina, and now large parts of 1864 and The Giver, Soul Surfer is the most sweepingly gorgeous and staggeringly beautiful composition ever to come from Beltrami's brilliant mind. Even compared to those others I mentioned, it has something that none of his other scores ever had...a sense of purity, triumph, courage. The themes and melodies in this score are just perfect, magical film score wonder, the reason I love movie music.

Anyone that loves beautiful ethereal scores should give this one a chance. One of my favorites of the last few years.

I've been listening to this today and it was driving me crazy trying to figure out what the main theme resembled. It finally hit me: Zimmer's PEARL HARBOR. That's not a comparison or a judgment or a "Hey, gotcha Marco!" or a qualitative analysis or a match on the gasoline or a snarky finger point. Just an observation.

I cannot detect any resemblance at all. Really, none whatsoever.

It´s like looking at the Mona Lisa and saying: Hey, I did see another pointing that portrayed a woman before.

There is a resemblance. Play Pearl Harbor's "Brothers" (first 20 seconds) then play the beginning of Soul Surfer's "Bethany and Dad."

Umm, no.
